    Sounds like an open source project.

    It doesn't bother me. Responsible dog owners clean up after their pets.

    @nsplusplus. Arch isn't particularly difficult, but it does have a very strong and vocal community who expect you to do things "the Arch way". I didn't like that because I prefer to do things my way, which is why I gave up using Arch. And systemd is not hard to use at all and is very fast, especially in shut-down. The objections a lot of people have to it are largely philosophical.

    Actually I think it's great. I wasn't being the least bit snarky when I said this is an appropriate use of tracking tech.

    My basic philosophy is that you don't need to snoop on me until I do enough stuff that you can convince a judge that my life needs to be torn apart. Otherwise leave me alone. For the most part "blanket" anything is bad.

    But this is great. I wish they would do it at my apartment complex. And the best part is that it is entirely funded by the fees and fines for the people with the dogs. And I wouldn't have to worry about watching every step on the way in the door!

    When I was young, back in the middle ages, dogs ran loose and left their deposits everywhere. We still played in the grass, but learned to watch where we put our feet.

    Yeah, but back then it wasn't my wallet that got hit when I drug it in the apartment and stained the landlord's carpet. We also had hardwood floors back then because carpet was for the people on the other side of the tracks that were better than us.

    That's funny. Is it me, or have carpet and hardwood flipped social strata?
