"Eine Kuh hat in Sachsen eine Autobahn eine Stunde lang blockiert und 40 Menschen waren nötig, um sie einzufangen. Es gibt elf Millionen Rinder in Deutschland – wenn ihnen ihre Überlegenheit bewusst wird, weht hier ein anderer Wind."
With the nice hint, that audiobooks you buy there, seem to be DRM-free ❤️
I just tested it, and bought "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" as audiobook, download it, own it.
It sounds strange but it's nice when you own the stuff you bought. 👍
Oh, this one sounds interesting:
Not an audio bookworm, but an audible alternative sounds interesting. Maybe it's useful for other people.
Well, this was fun: https://github.com/ossf/tac/issues/101
"What is "a healthy number" of maintainers?"
The disconnect between what people "feel would be right" and what reality delivers :)

Privacy, battle rhetoric
Mhm, with GDPR we won an important battle regarding privacy in Europe, but the overall war on privacy seems to be lost more and more these days.

This is not good.

Well, it's nice that you bought this CPU for 400€, but how about you pay us a monthly subscription of say eh 20€ to use it to its full potential?
Yes, Intel just decided they want to be able to paywall CPU features :)
And I figured out why, turns out, someone thought it was a good idea, to have different DNS lookup behaviour through out the same codebase, based on configuration settings.
At least it's solved now. Thanks to mailinglists, that have a search function.
TIL: postfix lmtp only takes FQDNs. While smtpd has no problem with handling hostnames that are extended by ndots and search domains. 😐
Still not sure how I find that.

Der Entwurf der Verordnung gegen Kindesmissbrauch im Netz (#Chatkontrolle) hat eventuell ein weit größeres Ausmaß, als bis jetzt angenommen wurde. Die vorgesehene neue EU-Behörde in Den Haag mit etwa 100 Mitarbeitern namens „EU Centre“ soll ein neues Datennetz mit Knoten in allen Mitgliedsstaaten aufbauen und betreiben.
