Dear US citizens: Should you hear some strange silence right now from the north, don't worry.

Canada just lost against Germany in Ice Hockey.

In Ice Hockey.

Its all about the beer.

That wiki page is actually pretty amazing. The pigeon transfer even blew away the car in one of the races. And then there is the macabre photo of the dead pigeon with the caption, "an example of packet loss".

Every time it started, the CPU usage went up to 100%, the fan sounded like a turbine, and it was a thermal disaster. The solution: add --update to /etc/cron.weekly/apt-xapian-index, deactivated Akonadi (in my case I do not use it), and put new thermal paste.

Until I realized that there was no ventilation hole in the case (our dear manufacturers importers). So give me a knife...
