git pro tip
@darius Yes! One of my faves, which means I've been bitten by an important nuance:
-S will not find diffs that only *modify* lines involving that variable, because it shows diffs that "change the number of occurrences of the specified string".
If you want to find those cases, you want `git log -G` instead, since it returns "differences whose patch text contains added/removed lines that match".
Heads up that -G takes a regex vs -S taking a substring (altho you can make -S regex with --pickaxe-regex). Fortunately they're right next to each other in `git help log`, which actually has a nice little example showing the difference between the two as well.

Thing is, the "diversity award" is not an award, oh no. There's a $15000 "prize", but the check is stapled to a Humble publishing contract. They're not "helping new talents" as much as buying themselves a cheap game from a (hopefully) promising brand. Can I get a "fuck yeah, exploitation of minorities" going in the chat?
For folks who want something Patreon-esque but don't want to deal with Patreon and its various issues, this new alternative might be worth looking into: https://medium.com/@jessevondoom/introducing-substation-cd9612d04f82
It seems to be a middleware API that lets you handle your own payments and manage the communications/perks/levels yourself.
Right now I am not in a situation where I need/want to look into this further but others might want to.
