New Code Submitted to Allow Man to Replace His Own Mother With Systemd

Citing that this would be the big step in achieving his dreams and “getting out from under his mothers’ shadow”, local Linux enthusiast, Jerry Encel, informed reporters on Monday that the new code had been submitted and was now just waiting for review, before hopefully being merged into the systemd code stack.

“It’s been a long time coming,” said Mr. Encel, as he proudly scrolled through the lines of code on his Thinkpad laptop, in between shoving fistfuls of Cheezels into his mouth. “I consider myself somewhat of a student of Lennart Poettering, so you might say I’m fond of systemd. And it can replace pretty much anything we’ve seen thus far, so why not my mother?”

While admitting that the Cheezels, the laptop and even the faded black T-shirt bearing the phrase “There’s no place like” from 2011 that he was wearing were all provided by the mother in question, Jerry Encel says that systemd will be able to takeover all her daily duties. “And without all the constant nagging,” he added. “Like telling me to get a job. Or go make friends. Or telling me to stop spreading communist propaganda posts on Facebook. There’s only so much one man can take.”

In recent days there has been some very vocal online opponents to Mr. Encel’s proposal, with many citing that he “should have least considered replacing her with OpenRC or runit, instead of systemd” or others stating that “it is an insult to his mother to replace her with something with the complexity and UNIX-philosophy violating nature of systemd”.

At press time, Jerry Encel has reportedly also started work on another code proposal for a systemd component which he has simply named “waifud”.

Pale Moon Version 27.9.4

Pale Moon has been updated to version 27.9.4. The release includes DiD ("Defense-in-Depth") changes.  This means that a fix does not apply to a (potentially) actively exploitable vulnerability in Pale Moon, but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by the same code, e.g. when surrounding code changes, exposing the problem, or when new attack vectors are discovered.

It's said that the netbook was killed by the emergence of the tablet. Now the tablet (at least the Android variety) appears to be on its way out. Google doesn't make them anymore and in fact, Android P will not be supported on tablets.
I've been looking for a tablet lately to replace an old Nexus 7 2012 edition. The grandkids like playing games on it but it's obsolete and won't run anything higher than Android 4.4 without slowing down completely. Pickings are pretty slim unless you want iPad (I don't) or Amazon Fire (don't want that either.) None of the majors have released a new model this year and the market appears to be going over to the Chinese no-names.
The tablet is being replaced by phablet phones, Chromebooks, 2 in 1s and new faster lighter notebooks. I guess most folks want a keyboard after all. There wasn't anything wrong with the netbook that better hardware wouldn't have cured.
