I used to know a little German, but it's now reduced to one sentence: Eine kleine tasse Schokoladenschnitzel mit Bananenkartoffel und Kabelsalat auf der Hauptbahnhof, bitte.

Lesson learned: even if your MCU is single-core, your #firmware single-threaded, execution may still become non-linear.

TFW you want to use cron, but it fails, because you don't have a local MTA.

#Ubuntu is placing ads in its motd when you ssh in.

The way it fetches this ad is by doing

USER_AGENT="curl/$curl_ver $lsb $platform $cpu $uptime cloud_id/$cloud_id"

curl -A "$USER_AGENT" ...

In other words, Ubuntu is sending Canonical tracking information so it can serve you an ad.

This doesn't exactly run every time you log in (it caches the ad in /var/cache), but still... phoning home for a frickin ad?

I wish the GNOME community would embrace one of two viewpoints:

- Code formatting does not matter
- Code formatting matters, and is *entirely* maintained and enforced by a tool (cf go fmt, rustfmt, black)

It's heartbreaking to see code reviews which ask only that the authors change things which have no semantic meaning. What a waste of limited time that we could spend on making the software work well.

Oh my God, Becky.
Look at this pull request.
I mean, this commit, it's just so small.
I can't believe it's just so concise,
like it's well thought out.
It's just so... good.

I like small DIFFS, and I cannot lie.
You other hackers can deny,
But when a patch comes in with an itty-bitty count,
and that bug fix in your face
You hit MERGE.

Ah, dekstop Linux. Because why name an application by what it actually does, when you can instead steal & squat on another name that means something completely different?
