@musicmatze Note, many 2FA sites simply share a key with a #2FA auth app on mobile and generate 6 digit tokens based on the key and the current time (not banking apps though).
That scheme (#TOTP, #RFC-6238) can be replicated on the CLI without a mobile, for example:
Get key from 2FA-Settings page, for a QR code, use:
Example-Key: Quick Brown Fox
echo -n 'Quick Brown Fox' | base32
oathtool --totp=sha1 --base32 KF2WSY3LEBBHE33XNYQEM33Y

AppImage builds are another use case for version checks under Linux.
You're right, distribution packaged versions probably shouldn't popup update suggestions.
Now I'm wondering what's with prebuilt debs or rpms on the project website? Maybe those should have the popup, just like the AppImage...
Fun fact, #Zrythm *also* checks home upon startup to notify the users of a new version.
if (input < 0 || input > 65536)
My key take away is that not-taken conditional branches are essentially free, and are not polluting the branch predictor, i.e.
if (__builtin_expect (DEBUG, 0))

Good news: Supreme Court finds that as a matter of law, APIs can be reimplemented as fair use.

It is #2021, we are in crazy land folks (#hamburg):
The Assange case for extradition is still 90% upheld.
The judge refused extradition because the pending suicide risk would make it act of oppression.
The US going to appeal, so the decision will be taken to a higher court and has to be fought all over again.
The lawyers are now talking to Assange to prepare bail application, to be heared in 45 min.
That means, the US prision system is so bad that even this judge wouldn't send Julian into it.

Judge rules against US extradition of Julian Assange, contending extradition would be oppressive by reason of Assange’s mental health.
The judge and defense are discussing an application for bail. US government is going to immediately appeal.
