I'm taking @sir 's advice and switching from Protonmail to Migadu.

I was a paying customer of Protonmail but they've dropped the ball in many places. SMTP/IMAP support was the first (and the bridge was only for paying customers until recently!), no scheduled messages the second, and realizing the broken security model (even before Drew's post) the third, and I'm sure others could list other reasons.

While I don't think Protonmail is spying on emails, their system is broken.

@wolf480pl they already have, and they called it docker compose

@sir
I think Docker was created as people took an old programmer`s joke too seriously.
Customer: Software does not work!
Developer: It works on my machine!
Manager: So we just ship your machine to the customer. Problem solved.

Surveillance capitalism is the same as climate change, but for data:

- Some people have been warning about its consequences for years
- Most people don't care because they don't feel concerned, they can't see it affecting them
- A few companies are making a lot of damage with the help of governments
- When we will face the consequences it will be too late
- We can still do something about it, and the sooner the better

Remember when your Mom told you "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all."?

Yeah, she was talking about posting comments. :)

So suddenly there’s a lot of attention around email and it’s exposing how many people in the web community still use Gmail. Like actually trust all your personal information and communication (and that of your potentially marginalised or vulnerable contacts) with Google. 🤮

There are a lot of hard problems and lack of alternatives when it comes to rights-respecting technology. But email (as imperfect as it is) has a fair few affordable alternative providers. Small change, big difference.

The downside to a deep love for music is that I'll probably end up going deaf within a couple of decades

Thanks for your participation, everybody.

As a new convert to lsp-mode, so far I only dislike the way it keeps a list of known project directories. It's troublesome when using some highly temporary directories for experimentation. But I'll figure something out.

Someone made a "face depixelizer" that turn a low-res pic of a face into a high-res one and of course the first thing they did is try it out with Doomguy and honestly that's pretty impressive but also hilarious
