11 months ago the CTO of ProtonMail told me that he was "pushing as we can" to open-source the proprietary paid bridge they use as a pathetic excuse for supporting standard, open protocols like IMAP and SMTP. Today it's still paid-only proprietary software.

ProtonMail is a scam.

bash vs zsh

zsh:
the heck is a zsh
can't even pronounce it
not a verb
dumb name

bash:
has a meaning
everyone can pronounce it
gonna bash you
has "bourne again" in the name that's cool

The main reason students fail is because they give up what they want most for what they want in the moment.

@sir
I maintain that it was stupid to allow html in emails.

They should have come up with a bbcode or markdown-like alternative

The OpenPGP keyserver network is at risk of collapse. gist.github.com/rjhansen/67ab9

I've been using OpenPGP for a long time now; at $lastjob I signed 99% of all my outgoing email, for example. I do not now, and never have, used the "web of trust". I directly manually verify every key I have in my keystore. If someone else signs my key for me, I thank them and keep the email, but don't publish the results. (With one exception for a period where it was looking like I'd have to become a Debian contributor).

I've phone up organisations and asked for their key fingerprints (yes, including CERTs). I've printed my fingerprints on business cards. I've used keys from the keyservers, to communicate with people that I know but don't happen to have the current key for.

I have never trusted someone elses' signature on a key, because I don't know if they have the same standards as I do.

Introducing people.kernel.org

"Ever since the demise of Google+, many developers have expressed a desire to have a service that would provide a way to create and manage content in a format that would be more rich and easier to access than email messages sent to LKML. Today, we would like to introduce people.kernel.org, which is an ActivityPub-enabled federated platform powered by WriteFreely and hosted by very nice and accommodating folks at write.as."
