OMG! @Michele_Butcher@twitter.com, this website is perfect for you! lmddgtfy.net/

#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.

It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.

It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.

It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.

It's not how e-mail should work.

Consider dropping GMail.

Every computer is portable if you're strong enough.

After switching to Nextcloud from Google Drive back in April I can now say that it has actually been better in nearly every way I use it. Seriously, it's pretty awesome. I haven't tried shared document editing as it isn't something I need but that option, and so many others, are there if I do.

Adding to companies that suck this week... Our no-frills gym raised the price over 50% without notice. Now it's more than the nicer gyms. Looks like I need to switch that too this week.

Some older, inactive Mastodon accounts are being turned into spam accounts.

Every account I've checked has been in the haveibeenpwned.com database, i.e. the spammers are using breaches from other websites and randomly trying e-mail/password combinations to get access to those accounts, insert spam links in the bio and start following people.

An exceptionally simple defence against this happening to you is using two-factor authentication. Check your account settings to see how to enable it.

Waiting for a release to complete is my new waiting for the build to compile. Thank God for Twitter while I wait :/

Of all the speakers I would see on the Highered Conf circuit, @DrKarlynB@twitter.com is still in the top 3 of most useful sessions. Hopefully I'll get to see her at an event again at some point.

It's the first of seven days of "Hi @royboy789@twitter.com." I'm tagging @mhanes@twitter.com to help me carry this forward.
