The little note in #Python's multiprocessing docs stating that "safely forking a multithreaded process is problematic" is no joke. Do not ignore this, your processes will freeze for no reason (in places like logging calls).
The fact that forking is the default doesn't help.

Petition to change Chromium's User-Agent header to Google-Agent
#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: http://www.youtube.com/timedtext_cs_panel?c=UCVyLsPwIuxjXtDtRrxRi31Q&tab=2
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.
