As one does at three o'clock in the morning, I started a funky side project.

I started a project called 1pr
I will provide guidance for the project and offer my opinion, but I will not write code and I will limit my choices to open pull requests. I may resolve simple conflicts in order to merge a pull request, but I will mostly just press the merge pull request button once per day.
Shortly after posting this project, I got four PRs and merged this one. It changed the home page:
This was a terrific first pull request and got me excited about this project because it immediately made the project into sort of a learning experience for newer programmers. That's something I am very passionate about, but I literally had zero ideas when I started this. As I mentioned in the title, it was 3am and I just felt like starting something.
I am thinking of today as day two even though it's the same calendar day as day one, technically. It's one sleep later, and I look forward to merging PR #2.
