Before I moved off of Gmail, I extracted an archive of all that e-mail and placed it in a Maildir folder and put it on my current IMAP server.
Maybe once or twice a year I'll go through and read some old e-mails .. reading stuff today from 2005. We talked so much differently back then ... we actually wrote out our thoughts in long form.
Over the years there have been fewer and fewer people I've done that with. Today it's probably less than 5, and it might be months between replies.
Nextcloud running in a docker container feels sluggish. Their Linux client segfaults on my home machine, and qt5webkit, one of its dependencies, segfaults when it tries to compile on another machine. The Android app just kept crashing over and over after an update .... Syncthing works great through, both via relay and when I give it explicit computer IPs on my home VPN. I've heard when it was OwnCloud; people complained about data loss. So this is a sign to give up on it. Good effort at least.
Fucking MEGA sync works on one machine but is totally broken on this one; even after deleting all my settings, moving my old MEGA directory and forcing a resync. I guess it's time to switch to something self-hosted. Huh .. git-annex puts me in Haskell dependency hell .. Maybe I should finally setup NextCloud.
I don't understand mastodon
I'm confused about something. So here is the thread on the OP's server:
The replies disappeared from my timeline and I assumed they deleted them, but the full thread exists on their server, and I can still reply to it
Silencing an instance would mean new posts do not appear. How are posts moderated so they send out a delete request but keep their original version of the thread? Feels broken.
