So, dear advocates of that-init-system-that-shall-not-be-named, how's the butthurt for the kdbus backlash going? #trollface

I present you the most pointless, annoying and pedantic GitHub pull request ever.

h/t +Tim Pope for posting it on Twitter :-)

Rumor has it that the Italian Government is planning a complete phase-out of the copper-based local loop with its "Ring" initiative, which would also kill the Incumbent's iron grip on the local loop.
That would be great, but the purported drafts mention "minimum speed of 30 Mbps" - in Italian telcos lingo that means FTTC/VDSL.

So copper would still be there and telcos would still sell (underprovisioned) VDSL as "ultra-broadband fibre access".

I hope those rumors are wrong, otherwise we'll be stuck forever with an obsolete access network.

I have to admit that #verybello represents Italy at its finest: a horrible, expensive, useless and broken cialtronata (sorry, lack of better terms to describe it).

Just loading the homepage with cold caches (i.e. first time visitors) will set your traffic quota back ~5.5MB ~5.1MB, scrolling down will trigger dynamic loading of elements - well, broken dynamic loading, since the webapp will emit temporary redirects (302s!) for every thumbnail hosted on S3.

But wait, there's more: all thumbnails are really full-size images scaled down using CSS, so you'll be hit by a multi-KB download each time you scroll down - that is, unless the thumbnail happens to be a PNG24 weighing in about 1MB.

Also, when you close a dropdown the page reloads. No, I'm not kidding.

My job in a nutshell

A Windows admin, a UNIX admin and a Mainframe admin went to the toilet at the same time;
- the Windows guy finished first, washed his hands and wiped the fingers on a huge wad of paper towels and threw them on the floor, mostly unused
- The Unix guy washed his hands and carefully dried his hands with 1 paper towel, which he then deposited in the bin
- The mainframe guy just headed for the door, remarking "I learned long ago not to piss on my fingers".

My colo apparently solved the CPU cooling issues plaguing my new machine. Time to reinstall the hypervisor and begin moving VMs off.

En Taro Adun, little one!
