I have had a large glass coffee table surface as a desk for many years now. I like it a lot, it's a good size etc, and it's half an inch thick. However, it rests on two Ikea trestles and I've always been a little bit anxious that it's insufficiently supported for resting all my computers plus sometimes my upper body weight on it. It flexes a bit if I lean on it unless I have the trestles just right.

So I want to make a framework that goes underneath it out of wood which can give it a little extra support, and nice 2x4 legs at the corners. The problem is I don't know how to estimate what's a good size for the cross members that will hold it up. Like how do I eyeball the structural stability of this?

the problem with FOSS basically is its emphasis on individual use and the lack of recognition that

software is and should be a public utility
at the end of the day, regardless of ideological intent, the majority of FOSS libraries exist as time donations to major companies by providing them with a library they don't have to rewrite themselves
