@koreymoffett @Linux4Everyone Yeah, I just think we should advocate in a less unpleasant way than what I see way too often, I see something that looks like "What you use is shit, you're stupid for using it" to the person being advocated to way to often, in my opinion "I've had really good experiences with x because of y, z" would be a more sensible way to get around to it, In my experience you catch way more flies with honey than with vinegar.
@sotolf I wish :-) at least 2 possible locations in the software stack; not reproducible up to now. But I'm getting closer -- will be my dumb past self that caused this one, to be exposed by my brilliant future self
So, in January I started using a YubiKey for my PGP needs. I made a new PGP key for it and signed it with my old one (to show that I "acknowledge" my new key)
On April 2nd my old key expired. I didn't care as I don't use it any more. However, Thunderbird didn't allow me to send an email, because my new key was signed with an expired key. So, I had to prolong it before doing so.
Is it a Thunderbird bug or a PGP feature? What is the correct way of dealing with expired keys' signatures?

Part of my blog it, so you can forget it series...
@kev I will not sign it,
because it feels too much like
Also, I understand and sympathize
with the main reason.
I also think,
that RMS is a bad representative.
I know, I know,
the end justifies the means,
but unfortunately I'm old school.
@kev I might, if it presented a view closer to the one you’ve pointed out here and on your blog; that RMS should step aside to make room for newer/modern ideas.
I can’t really get behind that letter because it feels more like a witch hunt than a genuine request for improvement. It’s not asking for improvements, it’s just asking for “anything but that”.
RMS has some...questionable views at best. I don’t think the way he’s expressed those views justifies signing a letter like this though.
@penguwin just managed to make me feel *incredibly* old.
We were talking about computing history, and I realized that he never used DOS or floppy disks in his life. When he was born, these things simply weren't a thing anymore.
Like 👴 talking to a 👶!
OpenSSL will release a HIGH severity issue fix on March 25:
Some rambling about the return of RMS to the FSF. In short: Really not a fan of that move.
