We discovered a +beautiful valley we did not know on the Pyrenees mountains, and we +agreed to come back in the winter, to see it transformed. Spending 12 +days there, in a tent in the middle of the woods is been refreshing and +it charged me up. + +Those last few days, back at home, I've been geeking around. Working on +a couple of OpenBSD port updates that I hope to see commited and playing +a bit with the DMARC[1] setup for my main domain 'onna.be'. + +That last made me realize what a mess the whole email ecosystem is right +now ... And I say this with deep sadness. I love email. I always have. +There's something beautiful in it's simple design and it's inherent +freedom (decentralization is called these days). But the current +state of it, with the lost battle against spam, and all the partially +adopted protocols on top of it makes it fragile and far from attractive +to self-host. I do not self-host my email since some years ago, as +it's too much of a hassle having to watch your ip reputation, deal +with stupid black lists where is super difficult to get removed from +and other headaches. It seems curious to me that the easiest part is +building and configuring the services themselves ... + +I prefer to pay for that service (it's cheap anyway) and be a bit +happier. + +And then, there's the mailing lists. Don't get me started with that. +Some do the right thing, some at least try and some are terrible. + +By the way, recently ben@~team changed the behaviour of the tildeverse +lists and now the forwarded messages pass dkim if you have it +configured, so kudos to him ;-) + +Wow, now that I re-read this ... I'm just wandering ! hehehe. But +anyway, this is nothing formal, just a phlog, so it's ok. + +Anyway, as I was saying ... those last few days I've been geeking here +and there. From time to time I took a walk or watched a tv show or a +movie to rest a bit (specially my back and my aging eyes). + +I have to admit I've watched 2 of the worst movies I've ever seen. One +of them, the last Avengers shit (sorry, you cannot call that a movie). +I have watched almost all super-hero movies over the years because, +hey! I like science fiction and fantasy. But the quality (cannot find +a better word) of them has been decreasing to the level of insult to the +viewer. And after that, there's the new Godzilla film ... What a piece +of smelly poo. I hear you "how the hell do you watch that !!", it has +an explanation. First, think that the whole point was taking a break +from active geekery. Second, from time to time I just watch movies from +actors and actresses I like. That gives you nice surprises sometimes, +but with this last one it made me reconsider that strategy. In fact it +made me think in taking my eyes off and block my ears ... + +I'm already trying to forget I watched it and I won't put it in the list +of movies of 11. To me it does not exist, it will be the best. + +And well, I think that's it for today. Tomorrow work starts again and +geek stuff will drop a bit (but just a bit hehehe). + +:wq + +------------------------------------------------------------------------ + +[1]: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7489 diff --git a/src/phlog/gophermap b/src/phlog/gophermap @@ -1,5 +1,6 @@ o--o-- ----------------------------------------------------- log -- o -- +0(2019-08-18) On vacations, emails and bad movies /phlog/20190818-1736.txt onna.be 70 020190706 /phlog/20190706-1212_entry.txt onna.be 70 020190507 /phlog/20190507-1931_entry.txt onna.be 70 020190424 /phlog/20190424-1955_entry.txt onna.be 70 @@ -25,5 +26,5 @@ or look in the 'Contact' section 0Contact /contact.txt onna.be 70 o- o -- -------------------------------------------------------- -- o -- -Last updated: Wed, 31 Jul 2019 12:06:27 +0000 +Last updated: Sun, 18 Aug 2019 18:10:51 +0000 o- o -- -------------------------------------------------------- -- o --
