Time for new #introductions!
I also do software stuff because of course.
i wanna get certs for stuff especially because a lot of my ability isn't backed by a degree (i mean a lot of it is, but a lot of it isn't) but my problem is two-fold:
1. certs are usually long lectures that i don't want to sit down for because i have bad brain
2. i dunno what certs are good (for UI/UX specifically)
so if anyone has tips on the above feel free to hit me up, thanks
#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?
Now that Jeff Bezos is in the news for donating 1e9 USD, I would like to remind people that Amazon does not disclose their #GreenhouseGas emissions and routinely receives an F from the CDP for doing so:
Money is good, but we also need this data, Amazon. Show us your dirt.
Finished another beanie, still needs blocked but it's good to be done.

Okay, that #FinalFantasy VII remake intro cinematic is amazing.
Tales of programming woe
Our if statement was always evaluating to true, which is pretty much what we wanted to anyway.
This is because in Python 2, '' > 0
We migrated to Python 3 around December, and then instead of evaluating to False, it was raising (can't compare different types), but being swallowed by Django's template engine.
This week someone finally noticed that our templates were empty, and let me tell you, trying to figure out why this ever worked was quite the debugging task.
