Now that I have configured (neo)mutt, I am going to try and use it as my main email client

I may have to fall back to webmail when certain threads get too reliant on media files and HTML formatting (yuck), but I can probably use mutt for the 95% remaining cases

Yes, I have multiple accounts, I get desktop notifications, address book management and I am using vi key bindings (sorry, emacs folks, I am an hjkl type of person)

I also set up guake as a dedicated terminal so that I can pull the email terminal in one keystroke

Hello Fediverse, I’m Pete and I’m back on the Writing Exchange! I’m an avid reader and aspiring author, hardcore minimalist, and eclectic husband to my beautiful wife — who clearly has a lot of patience to put up with my quirks. I come alive in fall and winter, hibernate in summer, and function normally all year long with copius amounts of coffee. I also have a deep love of analogue tools and workflows, despite being a tech fanatic. Feel free to follow me here and on my blog.

Five years ago I was half way through a hospital treatment that literally saved my life

I feel so grateful for it: after four decades of only knowing how to survive and reaching a point where I didn't want to anymore, I finally learned how to live and appreciate life

This is also when I closed my FB and Twitter accounts and discovered Mastodon

Being tired is not a badge of honor. It doesn't make you more worthy, it just means you're tired.

Greetings! M'aiq knows many things. What is your interest? You seek knowledge. M'aiq has much. Some is even truth.

Some believe the meaning of life is defined by its ending. M'aiq believes they lack imagination.

Interesting perspective from @joel on imposter syndrome. While I agree that the definition of an imposter is to be deceptive, I think there’s some nuance when it comes to imposter syndrome.

I don’t think it’s an actual clinical syndrome (could be wrong) I perceive it as more of a feeling. So to use my example, when I’m in a room full of all the experts I work with, I feel like an imposter in their presence…

@kev I've read that the eye can't process anything above 30 FPS, but the brain can handle up to something like 70-90 FPS. Or something alone that road. Just don't quote me on that statement. :P

With that said. I sometimes imagine that I see the difference, but for most videos it's not needed with more than 30 FPS. :)

Tenets of IT. This one should probably be underlined and bold:

31. You are replaceable at work, no matter how highly you think of yourself. You are not replaceable at home.

In this image: 3 different types of devices all running some form of #KDE #Plasma and some form of #AlpineLinux:

- the laptop, a #System76 machine, running Alpine Linux with the latest Plasma Desktop
- the TV, a #rockpro64 from #Pine64, running #postmarketOS with #PlasmaBigscreen
- the smartphone, a #Librem5, running #postmarketOS with #plasmamobile

Can't wait for my smartwatch next! 😜

Monitoring employees has become 'normal' as more work from home.

Constant monitoring blurs the line between our work and rest time.

Privacy allows us to set boundaries between professional & personal spaces, to be free to work with dignity & to rest.
