Regular reminder that "embrace, extend, extinguish" was invented by Microsoft.

Now, Microsoft says it is "embracing" Linux and open source in general.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

The truth is, git is extremely simple to use, as long as you don't do anything with it.

Yeah, we are all pretty much raving lunatics around here.

Also: geeks, nerds, queers, trans and assorted weirdoes. And cat lovers. Adorable people one and all.

Some good news from Patrick Volkerding:

Hey folks, a little status update here. First, huge thanks are due to
nobodino for helping to shake out packages that weren't building from source.

With all those fixes in place (plus a few more), we have tested and found that everything in the tree compiles cleanly against glibc-2.32. So, the plan is to have another mass rebuild soon against that. [...]

Beta approaches. :-)

Dear #sysadmin folks: what software do you use that includes a CA that can be leveraged as a general-purpose internal certificate authority?

I know about Active Directory, OPNsense, OpenVPN, but I also know I've forgotten far more.

Related: if you run a private CA with a management front end, more than raw OpenSSL commands, which front end do you use?

I have to resist this sudden urge of writing a Python routine to search for the most effective pattern to fool a face-matching algo.

Because reasons.

Punishers creators speak out against MAGA imbeciles using the logo and story they created:

Money quote: "They did what they did because their demented turd of a leader convinced them the election had been stolen. If you're ready to take violent action on that basis then no bloody, silly T-shirt you wear will have any bearing on the line you've crossed. In fact, it's completely irrelevant."

Well, that's it for Monday.

And it was horrible, as most Mondays are, except when I am on vacation.

To give you an idea, I thought about that Tintin joke, except mine was "Such a horrible week", "Wait... Today is Monday and it's not even noon".

And of course, this Bill Hicks skit seems totally appropriate when talking about how "My Sweet Lord" is a strange song...
