It won't be a surprise, but I honestly believe we'd have a better world if #Bitcoin were to get a chance to replace part of these industries. And given the immense power these industries have over our policy makers, I don't see any other way to get rid of them. Bitcoin is unstoppable, it is 100% neutral and honest; it has no opinion that can be corrupted by wealth and power.

I think I will keep running the Qua #writefreely instance on invitation mode for a while. The amount of work to silence spam linkers is just too much.
To give people a chance to sign up without contacting me, I will start posting some invite links; weekly or so.
Here's the first:
I really hate the blurring of the boundaries around terms like free software and open source software. I know we all make fun of Richard Stallman for being a stickler for terms, but I changed my mind a long time ago. This is exactly what we need because the corporate world does exactly this. For example, calling all sorts of software "freeware". I just recently had a discussion with a project manager. "Appendix … using the following Freeware: CDDL, GPLv2, GNU LGPL, MPL." 🤔

I had some display freeze issues in #emacs. To my surprise, using the 'Lucid' toolkit instead of 'GTK' solved the problem. (2 weeks of testing showed no problems)
I decided to switch to make the swithc to Lucid permanent as I have a couple of the problems listed there.
It's mainly an invisible change for me. Basically the only time I see a difference is when emacs throws a yes/no dialog at me.
Somehow I overlooked the function `mu4e-view-toggle-hide-cited` which is include with mu4e.
This does 99% of what I need.
Looking for a way in #emacs to have quoted text in emails collapsed in message-mode.
I envision something like have it all collapsed and replaced by something like '[...]' which could then be used as a toggle.
Anyone have any pointers before I dive into regex hell to write my own.
The best I could find is https://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/HideShow which seem to provide a generic solution which could be adapted.
Emacs survey results are out! Lots of interesting tidbits: people love magit, ivy and flycheck, and a striking number of respondents are fairly new to Emacs! This seems great for the health of the community.
