I did not anticipate how moving from GMT+2 to GMT-10 would affect my contribution to #FLOSS…
I used to stay up late to improve my PRs as soon as the maintainers provided feedback, and was going to bed in a good mood when PRs where merged.
Now, I wake up, see merged PRs that put me in a good mood and have the rest of the day to work on improving the ones with change requests.
The good mood trend to stay til I go to bed, so it's a fscking full day instead of a few hours… awesome 🤗!
@smortex all this tells me is that we need better distribution of FLOSS developers…
… and decision makers, really, since many devs / contributors cannot merge.
@hirojin Sure it affects us — in my case in a good way — but I was already a happy contributor before. I am just a bit happier now 🙃
Asynchronous communication helps a lot here to continue to contribute efficiently, and I guess that my move does not have any impact on the quantity of contribution I do.
Also, better living conditions (climate, location, people) are a good way to be globally 'happier".
So, maybe it would have been wise to leave earlier 😋
@smortex which climate people are happy in, and which people they are happy around, heavily depends on the person
it's a great privilege you were able to find out, and move
(I have too;)
@smortex An happy Smortex is always a good thing for everyone :)
