Funny how the less worries I have the more "are you alive? is everything ok?" kind of messages I receive

Between all kind of convincing behaviors, I find the most amusing that from adult couples with children, telling me at regular intervals that I should *really really really* father children

"A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies", said Jojen. "The man who never reads lives only one".

Just finished reading the last chapter from A Dance with Dragons, aka the last published chapter of A Song of Ice and Fire saga.

I'm not sure if it's true or because my love and admiration for George RR Martin work is increased to danger levels in the meanwhile, yet I've found it to be the most brutally intense and awe inspiring so far.

Please gods be kind and let him finish the damn job

"You lie,” he said. “All men lie when they are afraid. Some tell many lies, some but a few. Some have only one great lie they tell so often that they almost come to believe it … though some small part of them will always know that it is still a lie, and that will show upon their faces."

George R.R. Martin, A Feast for Crows

But suddenly, I viddied that thinking was for the gloopy ones, and that the oomny ones use like, inspiration and what Bog sends.

I love OpenSource and I do my best to avoid proprietary software when there are alternatives but, damn, LibreOffice is the crappiest piece of software running on my workstation today 😕

It's embarrassing: binary size, startup time, UX... oh my. It makes me almost scream for having Google Docs back

Long time since last update, so many things happened, most notably in my memory:

- granny died, she was old and her mind was quite fucked up but that was hard to accept nevertheless
- said goodbye to Berlin, probably for good
- during some winter escape traveling, I got infected by Africa's fever, hence relocated to Zanzibar
- started a new business here -> www.zanzibar.house

Quite a ride now that I'm thinking about it

Waiting for en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masters_ to be delivered. I guess I'm a bit nostalgic of those good ol' days

All right, I've managed to clean up a bit what I have so far from hardcoded secrets etc. and put a very basic README to get started, it's really not ready for collaboration yet but who's curious can have a look at it at least.

Here is the online demo of the frontend: xmail-frontend-beta.s3-website

Codebase is on Bitbucket so if you have an account there I could add some of you as collaborator. Just PM me here or better on IRC Freenode channel

And this is the best keynote of the year so far

A: Because Keynote Speakers Make Bad Life Decisions and Are Poor Role Models"

As side project I'm developing a self-hostable Gmail (more like Protonmail actually) alternative.

Main stack is Vue.js + Python3 Aws Lambdas + Aws SES

I'll opensource all I have as soon as I feel like the feature set is enough for considering it a usuable MVP.

Question: what are the features you consider as "must-have" in your email client?

Thankfully I didn't have to use Skype for the last few years and, oh boy, what a pile of crap is it still?! even worse than how I remembered. At least the latest MacOS app didn't keep crashing like the one I'm using now 😮
