Duck season has begun! I was running a bit late for work this morning and lucky i was because in the walk from the carpark I saw this family of Pacific Black Ducks.

Work uses Zoho Mail and I can't find a view I like. So I'm playing with different mail apps on the Mac.

Thunderbird is the current favorite. I don't want a client that does anything fancy.

I want to read/send/delete mail.

I bounce between Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Spark and the Zoho web client.

Still can't find one I like. Maybe I've worked too many years in Outlook Land.

Just a Bar-shouldered Dove on the clothesline with some nice rim-lighting from the morning sun.

Nearly every platform and service we use is a stack of hacks on top of hacks on top of hacks, and wearing a trenchcoat.

@kev Saw your post about the Codefund shutdown. This may be relevant to your interests.

You can tell that big tech eats their users due to their starving when you are not around.

Twitter sends me an email about how it needs my attention. Pardon, that I "have [notifications] on Twitter". And I bet you that the only notification I have there is this stupid "in case you missed it" notification that you get when you don't surf twitter X hours a day.

Anyway, I enjoy the fediverse a lot more :) thank you people!

Just now, a beautiful butterfly came into my apartment and landed on my job contract. It then inspected the terms and conditions with its trunk (proboscis). 😻

I love the sound of birds chirping during a summer's evening. There's just something so relaxing about it.

No other noise, just birds singing to one another. other noise except my wife on the phone to her friend! 😄

My son (13) has been using lockdown to improve his CS:GO and Rocket League skills. He makes little montages of clips and puts them on YouTube. I'm impressed given he edits them on his school provided iPad! Give him a sub if you like that kind of thing. ❤️ is rocking my world.
Plain markdown files.
Point it at a directory in Nextcloud for sync.
Got it on Mac, PC and Linux and stoked to play with it.
Even has a daily notes feature.
I may be in love.

I can't tell you how disappointed I am that your character's name doesn't show to other Fallout 76 players.

My beloved Parcellite doesn't seem to work anymore. (And hasn't updated since 2017.)

Anyone have a good recommendation for a simple Ubuntu clipboard manager?

Looking for something I can invoke with a keyboard shortcut and select one of the last X things I saved to the clipboard.

Zoom has made lots of noise about moving from AES 256-bit ECB to AES 256-bit GCM by May 30th.

I support web conferencing for work and get questions about this. Does anyone have a basic primer on what this means?

I want to understand at a high level overview so I can explain it a bit when asked.

I need to nuke the Ubuntu desktop and reinstall a fresh 20.04 LTS on it. But I'm terrified I'm forgetting to backup something. Grabbed my home directory. And...?

Primary motivation is removing all the self-hosted stuff now I moved it to the server. And the incremental upgrades from 18.04.
