Dear lazyweb, could you please recommend some really high-traffic mailing lists that I could subscribe to? LKML is not generating enough traffic (I think I'm the first person to ever say that), so I need more LKML-like lists to subscribe to.

Reason: tracking down some nasty bugs in KMail/Akonadi and need a lot of incoming messages. And I'm too lazy to write something that would generate the traffic for me and would be somehow filterable....

Today I installed a new adblock (uBlock) to my browser as well as the Privacy Badger from EFF. After roughly 8 hours of rather casual browsing the adblock already reports over 1200 blockings and Privacy Badger has already detected 80 domains that track me. That's a ridiculous number. Why are companies still surprised that people block ads?

Honestly, I can't even watch regular TV anymore. Since I get most content through Spotify, YouTube, Netflix with no or minimum ads and read news online (with adblock*) for the past 7 years, I can't stand having to sit through 10 minutes of ads every 15 minutes of the movie anymore as its literally driving me crazy. How can people withstand that? How could I withstand that for 18 years of my life?!

* I disabled adblock on some sites that I read regularly (as long as their ads are non-intrusive)

After several hours of fighting Cyrus-SASL I have a working native authentication for Gmail integrated into the IMAP resource in #KMail. Needs a bit more polishing and integration into Account Wizard and we are good to go :-)

Děcka, poďte přístí víkend na OpenAlt. Bude to prča. Přednášky na spoustu témat, kde si určitě každý něco najde. Otevřená data, alternativy ve vzdělávání, soukromí, open source, hromada obskurních mobilních platforem, které stejně zaniknou až si od nich +Jaroslav Reznik koupí telefon a spousta dalšího. Jo a já tam taky budu o něcěm žvatlat. Jo a taky tim pádem budu v Brně, tak se koukejte ukázat, protože kdoví kdy se zase na ten východ dostanu, žejo.

Updated to #Fedora 25, but again got hit by Fedora shipping an unreleased version of the X11 server, so the binary nvidia drivers don't work due to new X Server ABI. Luckily I can still downgrade the X server to F24's 1.18, which is supported by nvidia, but annoying to do and I wonder how long it will work....
