#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?

📢 calling all #accessibility folx 📢

We need some help captioning the videos from #ReproLibs so we can make them accessible!! Videos range from 5-18 minutes (don't worry about the keynote!) and are in English.

If you have spare time, please consider contributing! It would be a huge help: youtube.com/timedtext_cs_panel

Your privacy is *very* important to us.

Not quite as important as us having all your data. But pretty important. On a scale of one to ten, your privacy ranks a solid four.

You can rest assured that - after we've scanned and processed and extracted every last bit of commercial advantage out of your data - the bitter, tarry residue left gumming up the cogs of our machine will be treated in full compliance with the best privacy legislation laundered money can buy.

And that's a promise.

Poetry is the best thing to ever happen to the language and I am using it for everything.

"I predict that there will be a time where, just like POTS lines were
exchanged for cellular phones, people will disconnect their cable internet and rely on 6g or 7g alone. And probably still with IPv4 addresses." (Seen on the #NANOG mailing list)

Also he has a this wonderful page where you can run Linux in the browser: bellard.org/jslinux/

Let's talk about user interface design. This is my parents' microwave. The task is to warn up food. How?

Realistic hacking montage: someone starts trying to write a script, Googles a question on StackExchange, reads a Reddit thread, navigates over to TV Tropes, starts looking up something about a famous band on Wikipedia, starts playing Minecraft, starts looking at their email, and suddenly remembers they're supposed to be writing a script.

They now have 20 tabs open, and three hours have gone by.
