#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?

This will be interesting when I say I don't have one and then try to explain them why I'll never going to make one either.

I believe that this is indeed the new decade for computer scientists! I can't speak for the rest of the population, though. See, the argument is that people don't count from 0, they count from 1. Computers on the other hand (and therefore computer scientists as well), DO count from 0! Therefore, for computer scientists in particular,it is a new decade!

In the newest version of Jolla Sailfish call recording works and bluetooth connection problems are behind. So currently I have zero issues with my phone now.

Except it's propriety software. Well you can't have it all.

Also I haven't corebooted my t440p yet. Thinking about using tianocore instead of seabios this time.

What grinds my gears...

Amazon is bad. Here's my amazon affiliate links.

Google is bad. Zero attempt to raise awareness on alternatives like peertube.

Thinking about testing void linux. Reasons? Boredom mostly.
