Staring at Android logcat and a thing that is always interesting to me is when we have managed to recreate human anxiety conditions in a computer

I’m not the best writer, but at least I refuse to use the cliche “enter [noun],” and maybe that’s enough.

Anyone know of an email app besides Airmail that:

- Has a good Mac app
- Has a good iPad app
- *Does not* proxy or otherwise store my email on third-party servers

Paid app and possibly service are fine, although $10/month for Big Mail is… probably too tall an order for me.

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

Today, I dragged @StuartBeveridge to Chorley to see a fantastic bridge.

Because the railway and canal are at such a sharp angle, a normal arch wouldn't stay up. Instead, the stones are hand-carved in curves so that the joins between them are perpendicular to the bridge's weight.

It never ceases to amaze me how many Hacker News comments are just people debating what they think the title of an article means, without reading the content.
