Sysadmins, find arguments are ordered, beware ⚠️ especially with -delete ☠️

$ ls
bar.txt foo.txt
$ find -delete -name foo.txt
$ ls
$
😱

obviously -name should come first

#linux #sysadmin

Keeping syslog-ng portable means that it needs to be tested regularly on a variety of platforms. Not just on #Linux x86_64, but also on different operating systems, like #FreeBSD and #MacOS, and hardware, like @Arm, @OpenPOWERorg and even #s390:

I wonder what percentage of #Linux developers realize their choices not only affect different init systems on Linux, but also the BSDs: lwn.net/SubscriberLink…

This type of tech, #systemd and #docker being prime examples, are forms of open source vendor lock-in.

Good on #OpenBSD for disabling DoH in Firefox.

Hoping #FreeBSD and #Linux follow suit.

Configure DNS in the operating system, not in applications. #sysadmin
I'll bite. What's wrong with DoH?

A new breed of backdoors and malwares are targeting #Linux now, facilitated by the conformist adoption of desktops like GNOME and hidden in their growing complexity thehackernews.com/2019/07/linux-… - we are happy to say that our distribution is not affected by GNOME at all ;^)
