I guess I was the only one to receive the memo that today was Cultural Appreciation Day.

I don't post my birthday to keep those that don't really know me from posting happy birthday messages ;-)

How can it be that Google doesn't have a doodle for this date???
 
Today in 1912, mathematician and scientist, Alan Turing, was born. He was highly influential in the development of theoretical computer science, providing a formalization of the concepts of algorithm and computation with the Turing machine, which can be considered a model for the general purpose computer. Turing is widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence. Happy 104th birthday, Alan Turing!

Sure, but I think he has enough meaning that they should do something on all his birthdays.

My machine display was acting strange when I got back to my box from over the weekend, and went to look at the kernel logs, and was shocked to see that they were totally overridden by this:

systemd-logind[3511]: Removed session 4168.
systemd-logind[3511]: Removed session 4169.
systemd-logind[3511]: New session 4172 of user rostedt.
systemd-logind[3511]: Removed session 4172.
systemd-logind[3511]: New session 4204 of user rostedt.

systemd-logind[3511]: Removed session 4204.
systemd-logind[3511]: Removed session 4205.
systemd-logind[3511]: New session 4237 of user rostedt.
systemd-logind[3511]: New session 4238 of user rostedt.
systemd-logind[3511]: Removed session 4237.

systemd-logind[3511]: New session 4240 of user rostedt.
systemd-logind[3511]: Removed session 4240.

Decided to write a patch that would allow us to prevent user space programs from trashing the kernel logs. (This is a much kinder version of my "debug" patch from before)

Thinking about it, it seems that Linux user space in general have become very fragile. If i was to speculate i find myself thinking that the shift from using files and socket to using dbus is a big contributor, as dbus seems highly adept at shitting itself at minimal provocation.

And recently i learned that Fedora/Gnome/Freedesktop wants to cram video streaming through dbus...

I wake up this morning and see the "check-in" reminder from American Airlines. As I never do the early check-in thing, I usually ignore it. But this time I looked and noticed it said my flight was at 6am!  I double checked my email verification and it said 11:15am. I logged in, and sure enough, it said 6am. I called to find out what happened. The 11am flight no longer exists (I fly from my regional airport), and they moved my flight to 6am (there were seats available then). They moved my BGM->PHL flight and my PHL->PHX, but my PHX->PDX was still the same, leaving me a 10 hour layover in Phoenix. I bitched about that, since they moved me and I didn't want a 10 hour layover, they were kind enough to move my PHX->PDX up so that I arrive in PDX at 4:45pm instead of the original 11pm.

OK, so I have to wake up at 4am, but now at least I don't arrive late at night for an early morning conference. That flight was originally $200 more than the one I booked, thus I guess everything worked out in the end.

hmm. So does American not send you an email for schedule changes? I have had it happen for another ticket and realized it just by mistake.

It's been reverted, but still. People want to fix broken applications with other applications doing even more shit that breaks working applications. Here's just another example of that (change for change sake)... Not to mention, this was may grand fear of systemd when it first was introduced. And I expect many more changes like this.

+Alexander Patrakov likely because they are aware, and thus can prefix their tmux with the right systemd magic words. That is, if the dev environment runs logind in the first place.

Ah, you can see the boring talk I made in San Diego. This one is special, because I hit 10,000 steps while on stage. (The poor camera man had to constantly adjust the camera to keep me in view).
