Use /usr/share/dict/swedish for names that sound exotic to English speakers.
@liw i'm on Debian testing right now and, in itself, Evince is now *great* at annotating. I switched to PDF notes with it for paper/assignment reviews and it works well and is very portable (AFAICT). It's just the conjonction pdfcomment/evince that sucks.
What is a Hardware Security Module? Ashley Burton has some thoughts. :)

(Idly ponders the law on interception, and whether English law is even relevant here.)
QT sneakdotberlin: Google is now rewriting all URLs in gmail/gsuite email messages, *including those downloaded via IMAP*, to go via Google URL redirection, which is a HUGE privacy leak. they're editing the actual message bodies in your inbox.
It's nice even if it's a little slow, when it launches a new VM for each test scenario.
I'd rather wait a little longer for the test suite than iterate in production.

IEC, ISO and ITU celebrate World Standards Day on 2020-10-14, but ANSI celebrates the same day a week later.

How did I notice? The connection broke, logged back in and ran "screen -RD", and got the old session back.
That was nice. Yay me from earlier today, who was smart, but forgot about it.

@liw was the Copyright Battles of Sherlock Holmes the one where he faked his death in a waterfall and then waited 70 years so he could write some Watson slash?
Now, if this isn't the coolest thing you've seen today then you need to close the refrigerator. It's an animation of how bridges were built in Central Europe in the middle-ages.
A British solicitor (lawyer) is tidying up the affairs of a wealthy businessman who had left lots of money but no one knew what happened to his heirs in a distant american branch of the family. The solicitor spends days researching, finds the cousin, flies across the Atlantic, takes a taxi to the guy's house in his suit and bowler hat. Gets out of the taxi, walks up to the house to ring the bell -- there's a sign "no solicitors". Stops a beat, turns around and gets back in the taxi.
