Dear mastodon.nl users - so far maintaining mastodon.nl has just been a project I've done out of my own pocket. I would be okay to keep providing the service at cost if we can find a way to cover the hosting + domain costs (~15eu/month). Who would be willing to donate a small amount per month to keep using mastodon.nl?

Upgrading to #emacs 27 Mostly for the json stuff.

EmacsConf 2019 is tomorrow. Even if a conference about Emacs doesn't seem like your thing, it's worth taking a look at how it's being put on.
It's 100% remote, all talks are live streamed, live transcriptions are posted to IRC. Audience questions are taken from a different IRC channel.
It's the conference version of "everybody dials in." I'd like to see more conferences put on this way.
Byte juggling finished for my laptop. Now running 2 SSDs with #btrfs in raid1 profile. Backup of disk goes to NAS with rsync. (Want to add some sort of snapshotting to that)
#TIL dd also copies the disk/fs UUIDs when cloning a disk
Hmm, I was under the *impression* that _some_ text `formatting` was supported by mastodon
( see https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/853 )
Is that instance specific? Am I missing something?
The amount of mail without the required 'Message-ID' and 'Date' headers crossed my annoyance-threshold.
Here's a solution, using postfix:
`always_add_missing_headers = yes
`/^Date:[ ]*$/i STRIP`
This has two effects:
- if Date: header is blank, it will be stripped and logged that this is done
- missing required headers will be generated by postfix, including stripped ones
@mdbraber Any ETA for upgrading the instance mastodon.nl to version 3.x ?
Migrated to mu(4e) from notmuch for my email; took me "only" 3 days.
- rationale of 'state in maildir only' helps me keep sane when using many machines
- refiling messages is natively supported
- format=flowed support
- UI of mu4e, especially compose and attachment handling
- less glue needed to have a complete workflow
Things I lost:
- remote use over ssh (although the 'mu server' paradigm gives me hope)
It's all a lot simpler now.
Finally, things seem to start moving in the right direction:
Meet @forgefed, an ActivityPub / Federation protocol for networked version control services like GitHub or GitLab.
I can't wire money to my bank account in South Africa (from EU) without first going through a bureaucratic process of providing the SA bank all my details and explaining to them why I'm transferring my own money to my own account.
Also, some German banks don't want to wire to SA at all, so I have to carefully choose the sending bank.
Maybe this bitcoin thing has a usecase after all.
