      Using the activity for anything more than entertainment is folly.

      Only 60% of companies I work for use GitHub. Some of us create new users that are only for our employers.

      Yet companies still use it for hiring purposes.

      Sure, but I really like to look at this when I’m deciding on wether an open source project is worth to use, if you can see that the author is relatively active.

        A user’s activity on the Microsoft GitHub social media network/code forge is not a good indicator of a user’s activity in open source. There are gobs of free alternative forges, self-hosting, mailing lists, committing under different accounts. It’s as grain-of-salt worthy as how my ‘stars’ a project has for code quality.

      Remember the super important maintenance things you learned by hard? This is them now. Feel old yet?

    I’m curious. I’ve seen this exact type of shower (including the taps) only in Australia so far. Is it a common type in other countries too?

      Definitely Aussie. Never seen it in the UK or South East Asia. Can’t speak for anywhere else

      If you’re referring to the overhead style showerhead, personally I’ve seen them in the UK (no idea if it’s the norm, but it’s what I had access to) and a few times in the US, though it’s definitely not the norm there.

          Most showerheads, in my experience, spray water at an angle from closer to the wall (like this), or are a more mobile version that usually sits in a similar position, but can also be used handheld (like this). A showerhead that sprays water from directly overhead is unusual.

            The shower head in the picture is a bit unusual because of the two screws on the right where you can adjust the head. If you loosen the one next to the wall the shower head tilts down and faces the wall (which is nice if warm water takes a while and you don’t like a cold shower) and with the other one you could make it spray the opposite wall. So it’s pretty versatile. (Or annoying if the screws can’t be tightened enough)
