Gmail will block all third party mail clients starting from June: http://www.pmail.com/newsflash.htm
That is, unless they pay $4500 minimum for an audit :D
Stop using gmail and enabling their monopolistic practices, if you already haven't.
@algernon one way to address that problem - I use emacs as my regular terminal now; eshell for general use, vterm for sshing and curses stuff 😛
This post doesn't seem to be getting shared nearly as much as the #nvidia announcement, which is a shame because it explains all the big picture stuff everybody is wondering about.
@mcc Yeah, same. I started using it around the same time, been increasingly less impressed with them. In the last year or so, it feels like every other time I've gone to pick up a car it's been missing, or battery dead, or I get moved to another vehicle a minute before my booking starts.
This seems like a very interesting approach - a sort of Clojurescript meta-interpreter to allow for seamless back/front end code communication. I have many questions about how various aspects of it work…I wish source was available, but I suppose that will come later https://www.hytradboi.com/2022/uis-are-streaming-dags
the software we use to make software is split between
a) artifacts of profound depth and multi-layered beauty, honed for purpose by generations of craftspeople - things that may require familiarization and study, but reward the effort with years of aid to thought and effort
b) high-test distillations of the worst tortures our discipline inflicts on the rest of the world, but turned back on a userbase just about capable of operating them by virtue of years of agonizing struggle

@kentoseth Yeah, for sure. I guess I can kind of hope that the network for twitter is slightly different, as (I think?) most people aren't using it for friends-and-family, but rather for "interesting news/people", which may be more fungible and hence easier to swap; you don't need everyone from the old app to switch, merely to find a sufficient number of interesting follows on the new place.
Unfortunately, hard to bet against big tech and $$$ though...
@Nika2022 ah yeah, that can depend on the server - the instance I’m on, Fosstodon, has an English-only rule for public posts (for moderation purposes)
Some people living with disabilities say they are applying for assisted dying because they would rather die than struggle to survive on ODSP https://toronto.citynews.ca/2022/04/21/odsp-payments-ontario-ford-election/
I make computer things in Toronto, mostly in Clojure, dabble in Prolog. I compete in powerlifting, strongman, and Highland Games How are you?
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
