Some domains you buy because you can, and they are amusing: mostdesirable.org is one of them

More chocolate was had in Montreal, and I made a valiant effort to get Mailman 3 up and running in a way I'd feel comfortable about in production.  Short answer was nope, but I was honestly trying to take it's square peg and bang it into a round hole, repeatedly, with a sledge hammer.

New plan in place and going to go for try #2 tomorrow.  Now - sleep ;-)

Atlanta in 3 weeks, instead.

Just going to say it, for the record, the "new" KDE NetworkManager plasmoid (applet) is absolutely appalling.

- It's got a scrolled view, with no indications it's a scroll-able list till you click on the list and physically drag it (great, more spill over from tablets into the non-tablet world)

- The VPN bits are only minimally distinguished from other forms of networks in the list making it kind of painful look through

- The list doesn't really expand much out, so it uses a fraction of the space it could, thus making it very scroll heavy.

- It has a complete lack of use of colors (which would help with the distinguishing before)

- The fully active connections scroll with the rest of the list so they can scroll off screen

I dunno, I just hate the usability of the entire plasmoid now, and it's something I have to interact with a fair amount (mostly in switching between various vpns).  On the plus side it's the only thing I seem to hate about F20 so that's strangely positive.

... And this is why I'm not (a) running KDE or (b) running a full DE anymore. 's a pity that's going away soon.

I'm impressed with how many folks are getting hit by +Yahoo! 's HORRIBLE DMARC policy.  There are two fundamental problems:

1) DMARC didn't take into account mailing lists when it was proposed and sadly ratified (all their solutions are completely unacceptable to the greater mailing list community)

2) Entities setting up draconian policies, like +Yahoo! can break expected and legitimate mail all over the place for no good reason.

Mailman has some commentary here on what you can try to do, but it all sucks:

Spread the word, maybe someone at +Yahoo! will notice and actually consider not being broken.

I suspect at some point we'll have the silos of yahoo, google, hotmail, etc and the rest of the internet.  Back to the bad old AOL walled garden days!

Pft. What is the fun of a conference if you don't put yourself at a slight risk of dismemberment by demo?

+Arc Riley I went to dinner with +Guido van Rossum and a number of others, and I did have a few comments about my love of Perl and my annoyances with Python.  We did agree that Perl has the better logo.
