It would probably have been smarter to configure my setup before starting our trip instead of two-thirds into it.

Interesting perspective on Emacs.

"Emacs is the only serious program I know which manages to be truely user interface independent, in addition to being platform-independent."

If Google does not want to listen to my explanations, I will not change the app for them.
The way they are acting is unfair and don't give any trust concerning next publications.
I prefer to spend my time to help people to switch on #FDroid for getting the app.

@kensanata you mean because of possible incompatible future OS changes or something like that?

@kensanata Interestingly, the asking price for the actual book sounds reasonable and the price of the app sounds ludicrous.

Yet, the value proposition of the app (presumably including search, links and other interactivity) is higher than the value proposition of the book.

an org which does not understand their own security measures is a disaster, period.

@berkes it probably has the same effect as well; people avoiding you with angry facial expressions.

Which is good in both situations I guess

Mastodon.nl community - I'm looking for someone to take over maintenance and hosting of mastodon.nl as I'm focusing on other projects. If you're interested send me an e-mail at mdbraber@mastodon.nl

@veer66 I am the admin of qua, there is an outage in Amsterdam with our vps provider at the moment (I'm assuming you wanted to notify/ask me about that)

@osm_foss which part of the rules are they claiming you violated? I can't find anything remotely related to "promoting free software alternatives" in the rules unless I'm missing something?

@MrControl @pfx I used to sell a library with electronic signs.

esign.hsdev.com has a subset in png format, I think I have vector formats in the archives as well

In the past I used gnu.org/software/anubis for all my outgoing mail

It made using a gazillion different email-clients a lot easier having mostly the same config. I don't recall exactly why I stopped using it, but I miss it sometimes.

Switching my site to WriteFreely

I have been using WordPress ever since I decided to have a personal website/blog. It has served me well but I've come to a point where I got tired of messing with plugin conflicts, and spammers. I also like Markdown a lot and the available plugins for WordPress were either broken or had conflicts with other plugins. So I decided to try something simpler. At first I had my mind on static generators but then I came across WriteFreely, a minimalistic, distributed and customizable blogging software. It supports Markdown and HTML and that's all I need right now. On the minus side, it does not support media uploads but we will show a workaround to that, on this guide.

@stevenroose isn't it possible to provide some context and/or link with these retweets from twitter? That would at least enable /some/ exploration if it triggered some interest.
