    Neat. Try to do it one time also with eggwash and breadcrumbs. It does change the dish quite a bit. I may try it with anchivies, haven't thought of that yet.

    Honestly, in our family we typicall use small saridnes for this recipe, like 10-12cm. So, yes, it is a bit finicky, but well worth it.

    For a much easier version, just skip step 2. and simplify step 3. by covering them only in coarse flour (or maize semolina/polenta).

    If you have frozen sardines, this might be a better idea, since you can neatly filet them only when they are fresh. Fileting thawed sardines will be quite nightmarish.

    But I assure you the added complications are well worth it, when you have fresh sardines at hand!

    Another, even simpler, recipe:

    1. Clean them (scales off, guts out, rinse well), but otherwise keep them whole
    2. (Optionally brush them with olive oil, ideally using a sprig of rosemary)
    3. Grill them (again, remember they are small and don't take long)
    4. Serve with a lemon wedge, so people can freshen them up, or not, depending on their personal taste.

    Seriously. It is a traditional recipe in certain parts of the Mediterranean. In Italy the recipe is known as Sarde Fritte (fried sardines, would you guess 😉), but the same recipe is common elsewhere too.

    Sardines are great tasting and sustainable fish, there is no need to do anything else then give them some love. Some will say to add salt and pepper and chopped parsley, but I would keep it simple and at most squeeze a bit ot lemon juice on them when you eat them. Personally, most of the time I skip lemon too.

    This will maybe sound both too simple and too finicky at the same time, but it's my favourite way to prepare fresh sardines:

    1. Clean them (scrape the scales off, cut the heads off, guts out, rinse well)
    2. Now the tricky part: with a sharp knife filet them so you end up with the bones out (you can keep the tails) and the fish butterflied
    3. Pull them through (coarse) flour, eggwash, breadcrumbs
    4. Deep fry them - since they are now very thin they are done very fast

    If you're looking for one that is mechanically superb and has fighting-game-style combos, despite its first visual impression, Fight'n Rage is an absolute masterpiece.

    If you are looking for Creative Commons Like software licenses, there are the Polyform project licenses.

    I have not looked into them enough yet to form a proper opinion on them, but am in general wary of non-commercial (and similar) clauses, as they tend to have a much broader impact than people may think.

    E.g. does commercial use also prevent you from having ads or donations support your development?

    There are a few custom ones, none of them are FOSS.

    Limiting the license to a certain group is against the very definition of Free Software (see Freedom 0 and its further explanation)and Open Source (see §5 and §6 of Open Source Definition).

    As @Apos said, you can offer the same piece of code under different licenses (as long as you have all the rights to do so!), but the risk there is that if the group you wanted to limit to a non-FOSS license is able to get their hands on the FOSS version and is OK with complying with that license, you need other incentives for them to pay you instead.

    All that being said, FOSS is not a business model. You can fit FOSS into your business model, you can leverage FOSS to benefit your business model, you can create a business model to support your FOSS development and distribution … but ultimately you need to think about both separately and in conjuncture. Both affect each other. And both are affected by the (type of) technology you use and are providing (SaaS, server backend, server frontend, end-user program/app, library, implementation of a standard, hardware with embedded software, etc. etc.).

    If you are interested in these topics, I recommend checking out Principles for Industrial Open Source

    Ah, neat. Yes MBID makes a lot of sense. Looking forward to its progress! It already sounds pretty cool. BTW, why not also include a link to the item’s MusicBrainz page as well?

    On the Switch I greatly enjoy ARMS - it's Nintendo's own 3D fighting game, where if you use motion controls, you punch to punch and lean to move. It is one of those super-easy to grasp and hard to master games. Where a lot of joy can be had by just flailing around, but if you want to get good, there is a lot of technical depth (ranked online is brutal).

    There is also Just Dance, where you, well, dance.

    Oh, and how could I forget about Fight Crab …it’s similar to ARMS, but with (giant) photo-realistic crabs and the fighting is very physics-based (and optional weapons). Mad fun, and well … quite mad in general, TBH.
