Our five-year mission through deep space includes all we could ever want: adventure, trials, tragedies, and triumphs. The journey and discoveries along the way are replicated food for our soul. But sometimes all you want to do is dump the crew off at Risa, so you can have some peace and quiet. While everyone's on shore leave, you can finish researching a fascinating rediscovery: Kiwi Syslog Server.

Finally, with the crew away, you have the time to breathe and brush up on some new skills, so you can step into the captain's ready room with confidence. Pull up a screen, sit back, and grab one of those blue beverages—you know the ones. Remember, the doctor said it's not prohibited if it's used for medicinal purposes.

There are many types of stacks. Stacks of paperwork (I know you know), stacks of laundry (you know I know), and software stacks (you know I know you know), and for some reason, whatever we’re looking for isn’t at the top, isn’t at the bottom, it’s hidden somewhere in the middle. It’s protected on all sides by layers of complexity, only visible to the trained eye (like my mom… how does she always know where everything is?).

Well, you’ve been training for this mission. You’ve been honing your sight and stretching your perception and now—NOW—you’re ready to unpack the stack. You’ll dig for truths, unearth intricacies, finally put away the last hamper worth of clothes to find your favorite pair of jeans that you just KNOW you ran through the laundry.

Find what you’re looking for this month and expand your view of application dependencies.

This is your calling. Your mission. Your passion. While you've kept it to yourself in the past, this month, you're bringing your talents to the public. Ready to go digging for hidden gems?
