OVNI (Objet Volant Non-Identifié) is also the French acronym for UFO. But it also evolved into the lowercase "ovni" so Nokia may have a hard time enforcing the name on this side of the Chunnel.

Bagpipes. Instrumental, so no brain power waster following the lyrics. Easily cover any background noise. Monotonous rhythm helps putting you in the coding trance.
"There is a bathroom on the right" by CCR
Hmm. I got a Droplet 6 months ago, running Ubuntu server, and it came with UFW pre-installed and only the 22, 80, and 443 ports enabled (+throttling on port 22 to prevent abuse).
The announcement isn't implying there is no firewall at all in droplets, it's more like making it easier to manage the firewalling of several systems that work together.
Re: At least he's using Python
Not good python, though. "for x in range(len(somelist))" is an anti-pattern.
Looked less funny when I got a class about it.... Verity rules!
Luring employees with mobes
"Companies reap the benefit of having access to employees out of hours, with many doing email after they leave the office.
Whether formally agreed or not, there is often an implicit assumption that the user will be carrying around the device outside of normal working hours, "
These assumptions will quickly become wrong. People aren't stupid. Sometimes (evenings, weekends, vacations) you need/want do disconnect from your boss, while being reachable by others (friends and family, for those who have a life outside of their office). Mobes are getting cheap, small and lightweight. Comms fares are dwindling (you can even get free and unlimited calls to a select few).
Yes, we will soon carry two devices. One for the boss, and one for rest of the world...
