wherein a company does email marketing right by asking me to opt-in
Posting this mostly as a reminder to myself for the next time I have to do this. For those who don’t know, a statically linked binary is an executable that does not require any support libraries. All the required support libraries get included in the binary itself. This results in a binary that will run on any system of the right CPU type (i386, x86_64, ppc, etc.) The downside of this is that the resulting binary is going to be quite large.
