So outrageous. Telecom companies took sensitive location data intended to be used by 911 operators and first responders and sold it to data aggregators. Then the aggregators sold it to bounty hunters. motherboard.vice.com/en_us/art

You know you are a SysAdmin geek when you wake up early on a Saturday morning and adjust your procmail filters while having coffee.

With regard to personal servers, a few years ago it was like: "why are you even doing that?"

Now most people understand the privacy issues and so the motivation for running a server even if they don't understand the technical details.

In a few years time I expect it's going to be: "you don't have a personal server? What is this, 2015?"

TFW you find yourself repeatedly writing and then deleting depressing observations just before hitting "TOOT!".

Google somehow changed the license terms of the Android SDK a few days ago. As the licnese hash is programatically checked by the SDK-tools, this means hat unfortunately builds are failing all over the place. (Not just for #fdroid but in peoples CI systems as well.)

These bullshit Verizon "we ❤️ our first responders" TV ads, just a few months after they turned off the cell phones of the forest firefighters in NorCal, make me want to throw something at the screen.

#Mozilla, please don't do this. We don't want this. It might not be an "ad" but it makes you look bad nonetheless. Especially now given that #Firefox is the only non-Chromium browser out there, you need not alienate your user base.

Here's hoping this gets boosted enough. 😞
