While I love how user-friendly is, _way_ too much third-party JavaScript is required just for the management page to render.

@alexandru_balan if you're waiting for a fully legal open source service that has the big labels, I'm pretty sure that'll never happen. I assume their contracts include language about keeping the platform closed in the name of "security."

Daughter to mommy: What is a folding screen for?

Mommy: It makes a phone cost about $2,000.

is a log file navigator.

lnav is a program which reads log files and displays their combined contents in chronological order. lnav highlights and colorizes relevant or important information, including actions and errors. lnav understands several log formats, can create timestamped logs from any program output, and can filter by regex or SQL.

Honestly? Just treat web browsers as VMs with a tabbed, document-oriented GUI

at least that way people will get that the runtime should be shared instead of making everything an Electron app

Oh. Oh god.

I'll have a Gin and Tonic on your behalf.

If migration to another service is in the cards, check out Zentyal. I know for a fact that it can run both IMAP and ActiveSync. Compatibility with existing Exchange-aware services would have to be tested, but it may be worth a look.

Hmm, it looks like every app that boasts O365 Activesync are paid apps.

Can Zimbra run in both IMAP and ActiveSync modes?

If you were to ask me what I wanted to become 3 years ago, I'd have said "a software engineer at a big company, like Google, Microsoft or Facebook", because that's "where all the smart people go".

Now, my dream "job" is to work full time on free software. Programmers that don't contribute to free software are doing something wrong. It's not all their fault - the education system prepares us to work in corporations - but it's still a bad thing that we should do something about.

YouTube is updating their Terms of Service on 10 December, 2019. It presents an awful possibility for the future of creators on the platform. It seems they will be able to terminate your channel if it's "no longer commercially viable."; in other words, wherever they feel like.

don't you love it when you start a long running task, go afk for a few hours, and when you come back see that the task failed a few minutes after you left due to a network error

I'd just like to point out the differing approaches.
Google: we will fuck over adblock software.
Firefox: we will build in (admittedly limited) tracker blocking into the browser.

> Nobel felt guilty for the rest of his life

I know. The point was that intent and result cease to have a correlation when the scale gets large enough, like a creation that alters the earth.

> it did end life as we knew it

:alexjonesshiggy: You know that I did not mean this metaphorically. We are still alive, we have not died in global thermonuclear war, because everyone knew that the only way to win was not to play.

@kick @dirb @lanodan @sjw @toast Nobel thought that TNT would save lives by making it safer to transport nitroglycerin. It ended up making it safe to transport explosives to the front-lines of a war. The Wright brothers thought that airplanes would make the world peaceful, because people would see that borders are artificial.

Oppenheimer thought that nuclear weapons would end life as we knew it. Nuclear weapons were the only thing that kept the US and Russia from going to war.

It's not always obvious what will end up killing more people, and you certainly can't control what people end up doing with things you make.
