I was all ready to disagree wholeheartedly with many of the recommendations in this article:
Instead I was quietly pleased to see that I generally agree with almost the whole thing!
I create an account in a webshop, using "pwgen --secure 24" to generate a random password that is 24 characters long.
What does the webshop do?
Emails me the password in a clear text email.
Luckily the shop has a "Delete account"-button right next to the "Change password button".
It is fascinating to read a snippet like this: the function hashing mechanism was strlen().
Yet PHP became ubiquitous.
Often "good enough", or even "barely working", trumps ... well, everything else, I guess?
Or rather, something else - like becoming the module installed everywhere makes the difference.
Held, yes, in August. [Looks at non-existing watch] Oh, it is October now??
The next browser-tab had the link to Workshop on Functional Art, Music, Modeling and Design co-located with ICFP 2013.
We don't want to fix it, because other shit is broken too.

Now version 3.8 of Nautilus has entered Debian unstable, and my machine. Suddenly there is no menu any more, so the only way to access the bookmarks is to have a huge sidebar opened.
Thank you, Gnome, for destroying yet another one of the ways I use my desktop.
Oh, also, my desktop turned black - the background picture is gone. And there is no option to set it when right clicking the desktop any more. Great.
Update: Apparently a lot of people have experienced this same problem, leading to patches and what have you. What year is this again? 1995, the year of the Linux desktop?
Third problem: I have bound "nautilus /my/favourite/folder" to F12, because it is an easy way to open a new Nautilus window of my favourite folder. Well, now if there is such a window already, it is just focussed - no new window is opened. Exactly not what I want. Perfect.
Update: Ok, there is a
--new-window option I can use. I wonder how long it will be before it is removed.
This pisses me off.
Update: Oh, another thing I often used was to right-click on a folder and choose "Open in new window". That option has been removed. Left is "Open" and "Open in new tab". Thank you, that is very helpful.
Another update: After a nice tip in the comments (thanks, anonymous commenter), I have installed Nemo - and now I have my background, my "Open in New Window" in the context-menu, and I can access my bookmarks from the menu in each window again. God bless Cinnamon.
