  • Thanks for the post but this is a no go for me, will not recommend this to friends. From their FAQ :

    Sunbird is not open source. Some of the messaging community believe that open source is more secure, it is our view that it is not. The more visibility there is into the infrastructure and code, the easier it is to penetrate it.

    We are currently undergoing a third party audit (not Danny’s other company), that will validate our security, encryption and data policies.

  • If Bash is your default shell, you can install Fish to try its superb auto suggestions and the tab key, while leaving Bash as your default shell. These auto suggestions do not only work for your command line history but also for file names even when your first letters you type are in different order in the file name (For example, I know that I want to edit a file with the word work in it and start typing the word work and press tab key, but it turns out that the word does start instead with the word personal, Fish is still able to suggest the real file name to edit : personal_and_work_todo.txt). Fish has saved me a lot of typing time. And if you need Bash for a moment (Fish will complain about certain * usage), then temporarily exiting Fish or typing bash is an option.

    After installing Fish, run the fish_config command to configure it via a local session in your web browser.

  • They also send Delete messages to any server they know about, even if that server isn’t an AP server and has no relationship with the originating server. My website is not an ActivityPub server, but i get thousands of spam messages from mastodon servers a day. I’ve filed two different issues related to that but neither of them has received much attention (and none from garg).

    Ouch :( Are Pleroma, Akkoma and others doing a much better job at this ?
