@epilys Hey just in case you didn't know already. Your terminal email client is in the top news of right now, congratulations!

Good news everyone! I passed my thesis defense yesterday, and now only have some minor revisions to the thesis itself left before I am completely done 🎉 You can find a recording of the thesis presentation here:
Since the thesis isn't _completely_ done, I haven't posted the actual document yet, though I will make it public once it's finalized. You can find the slides at

"Apple made ProtonMail add in-app purchases, even though it had been free for years"

"and that when the dev dared send an email to customers notifying them of the change, Apple threatened to remove the app and blocked all updates."

So I finally made my log file based ip blocker, called Veto, available on GitHub. It's similar to fail2ban but more focused on web server logs and performance.

I built it as fail2ban took about 60% CPU when doing load tests. Therefore, I went ahead and built my own solution written in .

Sorry @musicmatze for waiting so long, hope you like it and maybe even give it a try.

May you be as happy as a troop of bears discovering a heap of apples

I've realized that I don't use any dependency injection in #Rust, and I don't miss it.

Cargo makes dependencies and workspaces so easy, that I break code up into small libraries instead. They are testable individually, and bigger things that would be unit tests with DI become more of integration tests instead.

Currently writing on a report about different VCS and how they are different from . Initially I thought it's an interesting topic... but Git is the most popular one for a reason and I feel a little like "why explaining other (mostly older) systems, instead just use Git and call it a day" 😅

My motivation to continue this report is respectively low...

The yearly state of survey is out.🎉 You can take part until the 24th of September.
Please help the Rust community improve the Rust ecosystem by taking part in the survey. It should take less than 15 minutes:

if java stops working on your computer, that just means someone else has installed java,and yours had to be sacrificed to maintain the 3 billion figure

The community is so big now that you stumble over awesome crates with thousands of stars on github, and you don't stumble over them because someone mentioned them to you, but because they just "appear" on your way through the internet.

This is awesome.

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

#Tusky 12.1 is out with a new setting to remove the top app bar, bug fixes and improved translations!
Thx to everyone reporting bugs and translating the app 💙

When brushing your teeth, do you

I keep changing my VPN server's location, but wherever I go, the same horny housewives follow me around!

Stop it, Karen (32) from Nottinghamshire!

@mdszy I'm still mad about being a home utility product site instead of a shell interpreter

To be clear I'm not sure actually python is the problem here just it is not really known for performance.

I used fail2ban with ufw as backend. Recently found out when calling ufw from rust that it's super slow and maybe that was actually the problem. Now using iptables and ipset as backend for my mini clone.

Maybe it was just a bad choice to use ufw and not fail2ban's fault but it's still fun to write a mini clone in rust so I'll continue on it.
