Today (Nov 19) is the day that men everywhere ask about on March 8 (International Women's Day).

International Men's Day promotes gender equality, positive male role models etc. all that good stuff.

(Today's also World Toilet Day; I'm sure that's a coincidence.)

After receiving EFF’s letter, GitHub has reversed course, and is committed to have technical experts review Section 1201-related accusations & allow code repository owners to dispute those accusations before taking down their code. eff.org/deeplinks/2020/11/gith twitter.com/EFF/status/1319787

So, one of the selling points of Google's Chromebooks are that *all* your data ends up in the cloud by default, making recovery from a lost/broken device easy upon its replacement.
Are there any non-Google options with similarly seamless/complete cloud storage?

The GitHub identity story is still a mess.

I agree with their recent suggestions to use commit signing but it is important to note they still forge signatures and break enforcement in non obvious ways.

As someone with over a dozen egregious confirmed security bugs with Zoom I can't discourage their products strongly enough.

They are one of the most security negligent companies I have ever interacted with.

Good to see FTC is calling them out on it.

Got out to Blue Lake, Plenty Gorge today for a walk. It was a lovely day for it, after I navigated almost overwhelming crowds at a shopping centre and along parts of the walk!

What a week! We know some of you have had other stuff on your minds, so we’re extending the deadline to submit session/paper ideas for linux.conf.au. Get them in by Fri 13 Nov (AoE). We’re blown away by the quality of submissions so far! linux.conf.au/news/call-for-se

Just submitted 3 @linuxconfau talk proposals. If you're reading this, I encourage you to do the same! I'm sure you've got something interesting to talk about! You've got just over 30 hours before the deadline hits; come on, you can do it!

Today's the day I write @linuxconfau talk proposals and work out how to describe/market myself in a bio!
Talk ideas include:

* codes of conduct implementation
* social media alternatives
* getting started with Docker Swarm

Other suggestions welcome!

At a critical moment like this, an independent, truth-seeking organisation like the Guardian is essential. Free from commercial or political bias, we can report fearlessly on events as they happen, bringing you a clear, international perspective. Support the Guardian today from as little as Β£1

Aww yeah. Feels good.
(Sure, my task list is quite large, but at least my *email* is sorted out!)

My partner just said that the food we have for dinner all calls to be "ovened". Not baked. "ovened."

I just thought you all needed to learn this new word with me.

So pleased that strawberries and blueberries are back in season again so I can add them back into my breakfast!

This is my favourite bircher muesli recipe:
Oats and shredded coconut mixed with orange juice, and topped with strawberries, blueberries, diced granny smith apple, sultanas/raisins, vanilla coconut yogurt, and roasted slivered almonds.

Fibonachos (I went to way too much trouble setting up this joke).

And a photo of several clusters of nachos on a bench with a beer sitting on it. The nacho clusters have 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, and 15 nachos in them.

OMG, am dying!!!

Someone used the bug GitHub refused to fix, that allows you to add a commit to a repo you don’t control... to upload YouTube-dl to the DMCA request repo on GitHub.

RT @lrvick
Hey @github. Remember that security bug where anyone can attach commits to repos they don't control? That bug you said you wont fix?

It was used to attach the "youtube-dl" source code to your own DMCA repo. Have fun @dmca.

You two deserve each other.
