#introduction I've been hacking unix systems since the mid-80s in a good way, and I try to stay in the unix/free software/open source software world as much as possible.
I build far too many workflows that mix bash, python, awk, sed and golang together to drag data from odd places, polish it up, and put the results somewhere where the sun does shine. With possibly less input safety than is needed ...
For money, I do infosec. For fun, I play Elite:Dangerous and help run the in-universe radio station RadioSidewinder.com.
I also live somewhere that isn't in your timezone, have a family that just wants their tech to work, and look forward to owning electric vehicles.
Even in these enlightened days where less() is the console pager of choice for almost everyone on linux, more() still has its place.
When you want to see the contents of a series of small files all in one go, more()'s default behaviour of adding a header with the file name when stdout is not /dev/tty makes for pleasant reading ...
$ more *files* | less
Try it some time 🙂

"Swiss Post's position is that since the bug only allows elections to be stolen by Swiss Post employees, it's not a big deal, because Swiss Post employees wouldn't steal an election."
