TFW you're trying to improve the safety and security of a software system and you get several people saying it's not possible to make it perfect, so it's not worth even trying.

Not specifically a #SysAdmin tool, but really handy.

pcal is a calendar-generation program, which creates great looking postscript output.

Example: A4 landscape calendar for Oct, with Monday as first day.

pcal -B -F monday -o Oct2018.ps -P a4 10 2018

Very flexible package for creating lots of calendar formats. Plus in true *nix tradition can be added to a toolchain.

@hibby @_tj Spoke too soon. Made a test call to a hackspace in Aachen but we can't get *inbound* calls. I think it is a NAT issue but I've not got time to debug it today.

Call 57north hacklab on eventphone vpn x1057. @hibby @_tj

The new HSBC mobile banking app is making me seriously consider switching banks. I have managed to check my balance only once in about 3 months and that took being on the phone for a few hours first.
