I'm a bit surprised about the fact that Scribus can import markdown files. Now I can edit the text and apply formatting at the same time from Emacs, with all the power this implies, such as moving by sentences or words, having the undo-tree extension, and swiper to search text using regular expressions.

Microsoft Azure silently install management agents on your Linux VMs without an auto update mechanism, so you have to update manually but you don't know they exist because you didn't install them? 🤔

Simply remove the auth header and you are root. Remotely on all machines.🤯
