Just reached out to Airmail support regarding ProtonMail integration. This was their reply:

"Hello Ayush

I am afraid Proton Mail is not supported for now.

Thank you"

Short. Concise. To the point. Completely unhelpful.

I like it. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

The people of Bhutan didn't even want to have a democratic government. They were happy with their king! The king ordered his people to be democratic. Yet, a culture of monks have created one of the happiest and probably social furthest advanced nation of the world. Their co2-emission is negative and they export green energy! All that within years without losses on any other side! I think the western world is dominated by money too heavily. True words can't be spoken and turned to actions, if money reigns.

@swedneck @alexcleac ๐Ÿ˜ฉ I just switched two email services in the last week. I really don't want to try another two. Isn't there one that just works and will keep working for 10 years and won't harvest my data?

@techbalance 1Password had a lot more categories, like keeping documents, bank details, etc. separately. Mucking around with notes to keep it all is a little tedious because I have a lot of data. Regarding design, custom fields in one password were seamless, but in Bitwarden they are input boxes. Overall better experience, I guess. The main feature lacking is that 1Password required a key and a password. Just using password in Bitwarden seems a little risky.

@techbalance Bitwarden has fewer features, but its more portable. I've already begun switching from 1Password.And Syncthing looks like exactly what I need. Thanks :)

Found this little gem.

Today I found a number of my past passwords seemingly breached, on haveibeenpwned.com, and on a search for reasonably convenient secure tools, came across Bitwarden. You can set passwords to sync, and even check them for breaches, at a click. All in a nice open source program (proprietary alternatives don't seem to be any better). Check it out. Bonus: has a command line version for scripts.

Never knew password breaches were so extensive a deal.

... I liked CrashPlan better, but it sucks now. I use Safari on Mac because it has better touch bar support, and so my bookmarks don't sync with my Linux. Steam games on Linux suck, on Mac they suck less, and I'm thinking of installing Windows to play Skyrim.

There is always NextCloud. But I don't know how long it will last, and SpiderOak gives me the safety of not managing my own backups and infra.

*sigh*

I'm lost and confused. How do you guys stay sane?

Looking for some advice. How do you guys deal with multiple OSes and not lose your mind?

My Airmail works on my Mac and nowhere else. Thunderbird on my Linux works, but it is fugly like most Linux apps. Though it can handle ProtonMail, but Airmail can't. I use 1Password on Mac, but it doesn't work on Linux. Most of my data is on Linux, some on Mac, both of which I'm trying to backup using SpiderOak, which doesn't work as advertised...

Comprehensive and surprisingly positive review of Microsoft Surface 2. Seems better than current Mac laptops. Time to switch maybe?

@ashfurrow Done. Hope this gets resolved soon. I don't have permissions to re-open the ticket so I've just added comments. I'm not sure if repo owners will see comments from closed tickets.

@ashfurrow Just a heads up. The email issue I reported earlier is still unresolved. Posted a comment here:
