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?
I needed to alter #json data -- #jq to the rescue https://www.tomsdiner.org/blog/post_0004_jq_nested_objects.html
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 👶!

Some rambling about the return of RMS to the FSF. In short: Really not a fan of that move.
Hmm in round one of #plwc2021 allmost all my languages lost, but my picks won all round two matches as of now -- weird. I guess the pairing is most important here.
@kev discovered simplecss just recently; As my site was very minimal already, switching to it was almost no work at all - really nice - thanks!
People who complain about #git are spoiled! Have you ever done a merge with #svn? Have you ever tried to tack multiple versions with #cvs? I have you ever wanted to work on a file when someone else had it checked out from source safe?
Git is a pleasure to work with, and anyone who thinks otherwise is just being sophomoric!
> <@tentaklo:matrix.org> Doesn't that (#emacs) contradict the unix philosophy?
That would be like saying that Bash contradicts the Unix philosophy. Emacs does one thing well, interpret emacs lisp.
Hi guys! A friend of mine asked if it is feasible in 2021 to use laptops running Linux in ISO27001 (and 27002) certified companies.
In theory, it is possible, but in practice, I'm a bit lost; they need monitoring tools, device management, possibly centralized policy enforcing, but I'm curious about the best solution for Desktop, i.e. to make a remote wipe of a device, enforce policies that block USB ports, provision software, control access etc. etc
Looking for advice 😃
@tomterl yeah, it's a cultural thing I guess, to go straight to click/type/build instead of making the effort of actually reading the instructions first. Or a human flaw. Or even an evolutionary feature that favoured esploration over reflection? whatever it is, I think you're right, not that much to do about it, beside ranting on the Internet of course 😂
