Nu finns det klistermärken att köpa med vår maskot! :linuxkompis:

Klistermärkenna är av bra kvalitet, de är 8 centimeter höga och priset är betala-vad-du-vill-men-minst-tjugo kronor (plus porto). Allt överskott går oavkortat till driftkostnaderna för Linuxkompis.

Happy 42nd birthday to... Spam!

On this day, in 1978, the very first spam e-mail was sent.

- The email was all in caps (seriously).

- It was sent to all ARPANET users on the West Coast.

- It was promoting a computer.

You can read the full email here:

Wow, I'm so happy I switched from osx to linux. This one would have definitely got me. critical security issue.

Why can't a terminal emulator be just that? Why would you build in tmux integrations and parse stdout like that?

I really don’t understand how someone can be naive and stupid to the point of liking a big corporation. I met a guy once who liked Google so much he named his dog after it. Then today it got me thinking: as a homage this is obviously ludicrous, but suppose your dog sticks it’s nose in your bag every time you leave it within reach, checks your wardrobe when you leave it open or even snoops into your room if you don’t properly close the door... makes sense!

One peace of advice for novice programmers:

Learn to throw code away. Learn to be ok with it. git reset --hard is your friend.

Your value is not the code you've written so far, but your problem solving process. You'll replace the code faster than you expect. 💚

LinkedIn's attempts at privacy are hilarious. If you're not connected with someone called FirstName LastName, they won't show you the last name, but they will show you that:

- They are called FirstName L.;
- Someone called LastName F. viewed your profile (if they are from a country where family names go first);
- Their personal URL is firstnamelastname.

🤦‍♂️

Disappointing that Linus' unexpected mea culpa was in response to a press story newyorker.com/science/elements (as predicted by @jennschiffer@twitter.com, who manages the impressive feat of being even more cynical than me)

This should be especially important to developers. The program should create the default config file, automatically.
