OMG! First blog post in 9 years! :O
I wrote a bit about how my email is now set-up. It covers how I run IMAPFilter, isync (mbsync) and Notmuch through Docker on my NAS.

Tried to write up a bit more about couchdb and decentralised data - getting better at articulating this setup

I'm having a hard time getting a clear picture of the issue as well.

The people defending RMS are unhinged, toxic cesspools of hate and mysogyny and I want to stay as far away from them as possible.
On the other side, the open letter from Gnome seems to be willfully quote mining or misrepresenting some of what RMS has written.

Where's the factual discussion?

Note: I was hoping GamingOnLinux would have been the place, but that discussion got overrun by the RMS defenders as well.

What on earth is going on with the whole / debacle? The amount of vitriol seeping out of the so-called RMS supporters is unlike anything I`ve seen in the software community before - when did free software get mixed up with 4chan?

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

What border colour do you use in your tiling WM?

I have a suspicion that there's a trend here...

To anyone following, Firefly III rules have been fixed; it wins the round :D

Anyone know of a decent home finance/budget software?

Requirements are:
- Advanced filters/rules
- Bank import (Salt Edge support preferable) or a nice plugin interface
- Works

I've been through:
- HomeBank: doesn't do scheduled imports
- Moneydance: Java, not stable at all, doesn't support my bank
- YNAB: doesn't support my bank, poor information on everything
- Buxfer: very close, but sync is buggy, budget does wrong things and support is dead
- Firefly III: so close, but rules are buggy

Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

Question: How are people reading email these days?

I've been using isync+notmuch+alot for quite a while but after reinstalling my system and putting off moving my setup to my home-server, I'm curious if GUIs might have gotten good enough to not bother with setting anything up?

So, suggestions, anyone?

(searching+filtering and fast navigation are must-haves for me)

After upgrading my PC to a new 5000 series AMD processor, I'm trying out KDE Plasma 5 instead of my usual setup.
Despite resorting to a tiling script, I gotta say, I'm kinda liking this!

It doesn't do anything I couldn't before, but it's also not as restrictive as I remember it and, if nothing else, Slack seems to behave under KWin.

Good job team!
