So uhm. n0nsense ät xinutec.org is both XMPP and a valid email address. If XMPP gives you certificate issues I probably can't fix it anytime soon because my friend is hard to reach at the moment.

You can also reach me on most IRC networks, nickname is ente.

Mastodon is too much of a distraction for my squirrel brain at the moment.

Have a good time.

I released notcoal 0.2.0 yesterday: crates.io/crates/notcoal

If you use notmuch for local mail indexing and tagging but have a crappy way of filtering your messages, give notcoal a chance! Or even better, learn Rust and help me make it better 🤓

Lesson learned. If you bring a geiger counter on an aircraft disable the alarm. It will go off in flight.

thinking about making a vent account where I can post things like fjgjjasdljkadfljsdfn;lasdjkaldfja;ldfgkjhasldfh

O stands for "Write *O*ut"

Also ^W does not do backwards-delete-word but find-string, called "WhereIs" in nano-land.

On ubuntu, where nano and ed are installed by default, I just use ed.

People give vim shit for being hard to quit..

Meanwhile there's nano, the "user-friendly" default editor on many distros, where it's normal that Ctrl+O is "save the file to disk".

Do you have lots of images to edit, but don't want to call ImageMagick?

Try:

$ gimp --batch -

This launches GIMP's builtin Lisp environment (TinyScheme), starts a REPL to read code from stdin, allowing powerful batch processing tasks.

Other language bindings are available, but Lisp is native. Documentation is available at Help -> Produce Browser in the main window.

Also useful if you just need Lisp, as most desktops already have one installed. Add --no-interface if you don't need GUI.

An opinion on the future of OMEMO:

blogs.fsfe.org/vanitasvitae/20

– some users/developers consider forward secrecy needless
– OMEMO's trust management sucks
– OMEMO only protects the message body
– OMEMO isn't a standard and further development came to a standstill
– Messaging Layer Security (MLS) is an upcoming attempt to create a new encryption standard

@aeonofdiscord to be clearer: Red Hat produces two distinct categories of software. one exists to serve the end user (GNOME, Libreoffice, etc) and the other (OpenStack, etc) exists to help companies Do Cloud Capitalism better.

ignoring intent, software in both categories technically qualifies as Free Software or Open Source from a licensing perspective. but the first category has zero relevance to the acquisition. International Business Machines has no interest in software that helps end users.
