A duck video conferencing with a mallet remember that early cartoon of the duck with a mallet about to break his computer? The pandemic has forced many organizations pivot to online training. Facilitators have quickly adjusted their in-person sessions to the age of Zoom. Perhaps, too quickly. Techno...
In Germany we don’t say access token. We say Kommandozeilen-Authentifizierungsschlüssel and I think that’s beautiful.

All the best. Been there, done that. It’s a strange feeling when everything you own is on a van and you’re finally ready to move 💪

Thanks to @firstname.lastname@example.org I stumbled over https://gramfree.best/features/why-i-will-never-own-a-pair-of-noise-cancelling-headphones today.
The author has a really interesting point of view about noise cancelling headphones (“ANC”) due to experiencing nausea and I came to realise how lucky I am that I do not experience this at all. Alas I am also not moving much, since I work on a desk all day long, and frankly wouldn’t be able to do my job without headphones any more.
I got my first ANC headphones due to a construction site next to our office that went on for years. It was horror. And they really helped again when I started bunking in my home office and especially in the wintertime when we all stayed inside most of the day getting into each others fur (FCK CVID).
The NHS widely encourages the use of ANC headphones, […], but because noise annoyance is a real health issue.
This basically sums it up for me. I get anxious from noise. My kids can tell, because kids tend to be, well, noisy little… ah well, parents know the drill. Anyway, one of my biggest motivations for driving for example an electric car is also way less noise. Gods know I hate car noisiness and especially motor bikes. Living in a “biker friendly” landscape turned this into a slow hot burning hate for this brainless noise pollution some people do “for fun”.
Back to nausea. I sometimes wear my headphones during a workout. Yuk, I know. Anyway, even here I don’t experience nausea or balance issues but then I don’t to acrobatics (I don’t count whacking a pell as dancing). Still I can totally get behind the point that the ANC feature is a bad idea to use while moving and using headphones in road traffic is a recipe for disaster. This may sound (haha) like a contradiction to you due to me driving an electric car? It’s not. An EV is less noisy, not silent, and even has to emit artificial sound (yuk again) when it goes too slow to be noticed.
Is “ANC” perhaps the reason I get more and more anxiety from noise? Maybe. Maybe I’m also just getting old and more and more irritated by our fast moving noisy world without a way to escape. Experience complete silence and solitude may just be my way of coping with all this.
Plot twist: I mostly enjoy Rock and Metal on my headphones 🤘

It turns out Breitbart has continued to collect your ad dollars through a shady ad revenue-sharing ring of propaganda sites.

Heh, that’s (finally) like tomorrow and will catch many unprepared – as usual 🙂
Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial end-of-life is scheduled in April 2021, as usual I strongly suggest to update before that date, the packages in the PPA will be gone with the next PHP update as it’s impossible to update EOL release in the PPA.
Amazing work, as usual!
