Valuable News – 2021/03/08

The Valuable News weekly series is dedicated to provide summary about news, articles and other interesting stuff mostly but not always related to the UNIX or BSD systems. Whenever I stumble upon something worth mentioning on the Internet I just put it here.

Today the amount information that we get using various information streams is at massive overload. Thus one needs to focus only on what is important without the need to grep(1) the Internet everyday. Hence the idea of providing such information ‘bulk’ as I already do that grep(1).

Quote(s) of the Week

me – why the *fuck* is it called a “dry run”?

I was 27 years old when I realized for the first time that most Americans do not expect a real answer to “how’s it going?” in an elevator. I grew up among people who would tell you in extreme detail exactly how it’s going
