Hmm, I was under the *impression* that _some_ text `formatting` was supported by mastodon
( see )

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:

In postfix/

`always_add_missing_headers = yes

In postfix/header_checks.pcre:

`/^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

Trying to get running natively on my Asus C101PA ("flip") after rage-quitting chromeos due to lack of and support.

Mostly done. Biggest hurdle now: suspend by putting the lid down doesn't resume, halts the machine.

Is there an accepted number of attempts to master before being allowed to give up?

@mdbraber Any ETA for upgrading the instance to version 3.x ?

Migrated to mu(4e) from notmuch for my email; took me "only" 3 days.

Main reasons:
- 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)
- tagging

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 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.

Spec wise, I think the LG Gram 13 ( ) 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
