I have been trying to get 'format=flowed' composition right in message-mode for about a year now I think, and I'm still failing.

I feel all the ingredients are there, but I haven't found the right recipe yet.


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.

Never, ever write a curriculum vitae without proper capitalization.

The difference between places that look for LaTeX skills and for latex skills is huge.

Why AM/PM is a bad idea:

- It's more complicated.
- Is 12:00 PM in the morning or evening? I don't know.
- 12:00 PM followed by 12:01 AM, WTF?
- Which date does 12:00 PM belong to?

Benefits of 24-hour clock:

- Simple, hours run from 00 to 23.
- 12:00 is noon.
- 00:00 is midnight of the subsequent day
- 24:00 is the exact same time, but on the previous day

Thus, it's obvious what point in time I'm referring to when I say 7'th Oct 00:00.

Now, let's fix DST.

Just read it.

I wish I could describe the essence of Bitcoin half as well as Gregory Maxwell can. This should be mandatory reading for anyone participating in decentralization discussions. twitter.com/bitcoin_experts/st

Trying with pixelfed.social It seems to hate the favourites, tusky keeps crashing on fetching them. Early days. (report sent)

I stumbled upon fediphoto.com

3 click photo posting to the fediverse. Nice, it needs a little UI work, but it fits a specific usecase perfectly

Spec wise, I think the LG Gram 13 ( lg.com/us/laptops/lg-13Z970-AA ) comes close to what I want. Given the weight of the 13 I wish LG made an LG gram 10 ;-)

The line seems rather hard to get though (in NL)

Any suggestions for a sub 1kg linux notebook? Usage: remote devops while traveling (backpack)

My current system is an Asus c101pa chromebook but linux capability is not stable enough and i cant use chrome because of lack of usb hardware support (cant use my with gpg key and )

Other than that, hardware specs of the c101pa are more or less sufficient, weight is most important.

boosts appreciated

I have enabled a 'demo' account on instance qua.name so people do not need to create accounts to try things out.

People seemed to be creating accounts just to try things for a bit and move on. This is obviously fine, but leaves accounts lingering and skews the statistics. The demo account is a bit of an experiment, as we all know what typically happens with demo accounts, but let's see what happens.

Did I understand correctly that I can now(?) use to connect to pixelfed.social? Anything special needed other than patience?

I don't recall a boring day, ever.

Today is no exception.

@kensanata can you change my handle on trunk from '@mrb@todon.nl' to '@mrb' ?
