A lot of systemd changes that riled people were mostly matters of taste, but some of the newish proposed features are really getting out of hand.

Essentially, the new (default) setting for systemd-logind is that it just throws away all running applications on logout. The only way to circumvent this is either

a.) Have the user change a setting.
b.) Have all programs use systemd-specific code to not get killed on logout.

Essentially, "we're standard, you have to support the shit we do". That's just not a point of view you can just assume in a Linux environment.

This problem was already an issue for people doing things like log analysis having to filter out about 30 or so extra log lines per cron job because systemd does verbose session logging without a reliable way of disabling just the chatter. ("Starting Session [0-9]+ of user root"...)

And now: this.

Fuckers do not understand resolvers, steal away resolving from about half the system, and tell everyone else to upgrade or FOAD.

I understood some of the design decisions going into some aspects of systemd, but this is utter bullshit and needs cleansing with fire, without remorse.

Why browser vendors need to block CA vendors that misbehave with impunity, part N of \infty

TL;DR for a sum of money that is best described as "laughable", you can get certificates for ... any domain really, signed by the best of the best of the best of CAs that certainly didn't deserve to be deprecated because they have a history of doing a great job of implementing extended validation.

My latest tom clancy read-alike plot line: Terrorist X buys some roles of those AirPlus air-filled pillows that everybody is using as packing material. Terrorist X inflates them with a mix of super-viruses and drug resistant bacterial and then sends out look-alike Amazon packages to Congress and the president.

Und Heise hat einen Kommentar vom üblichen Kaliber - "Was brauch ich Glas, mein VDSL ist mir doch schnell genug." #neuland reinsten Wassers.

Und das - die Denkweise, die Argumentation und die Einstellung - meine lieben Neuländer Freunde ist der Grund, warum Deutschland in den Innovations- und Zukunfts-Statistiken immer weiter nach hinten rutscht. Schade eigentlich.
