Say you have brand new Ubuntu server with a few Samba shares (and Avahi for auto-discovery). Or perhaps you have upgraded your existing server to 17.10 or 18.04 LTS.
Welcome back to the heyday of Windows for Workgroups.
You open up Nautilus or Finder (or if you are unlucky, File Explorer) to test your Samba shares, and what do you see? Your meticulously chosen server name is in now in ALL CAPS. (Note that I haven’t confirmed this in File Explorer.)
This aggression will not stand (man).
I was visiting family in Toronto recently and wanted to send my friends some postcards.
Having grown up seeing cards of the city skyline in every discount or corner store, I wasn’t going to be purchasing any of those.
Luckily, there are folks out there making postcards that are a little bit more interesting.
This was a presentation I gave at the November 2011 Codeaholics meetup and at BarCamp Hong Kong 2011. The slides also have some brief notes.
After almost 10 years of existence, I finally decided to turn this site into a blog.
My Declaration of Principles
- I will provide the people of this interwebz with a sporadic blog that will tell some of the news somewhat honestly.
- I will also provide them with a loving and lethargic champion of their rights as citizens and as human beings.
- I will also provide lolcats.
