	- Building iOS applications, downloading large updates, even running a web browser in the background became wasteful.
	- To make this work, we had to do away with as much bloated toolchains, languages and operating systems as we could.

	- Reduce your bandwidth usage and battery drainage, install NoScript, and uBlock on your browser; or use a text-only browser like Lynx.

	- In bad weather, attention turns to Pino, to keep us safe. With projects, to remain flexible and to keep safe we stopped with planned release dates, made it so that users help themselves. Having projects be open-source meant that if something happened to us at sea, if we disappeared, that they wouldn't die with us.

	- We keep everything in boxes, we keep our books in bags.
	- On a sailboat, you have something called a ditchbag, it's a bag to take with you if you have to leave in a hurry.
		- It contains your passport, and other important documents.
		- You prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
	- One grim topic, that might relevant here, is that we chose to make our sources available so if something happened at sea, our projects would not die with us. 
	- Generally, we try as best as we can to follow the weather, not go against it.
	- So, we don't have a schedule, and this is reflected with how we develop software.
		- In a way, weather has a direct impact on our roadmap and releases.
