@MrTumnusInfosec Shell, mostly. I don't think you can do much of that from the web gui
@MrTumnusInfosec Using it at home and when teaching. Works well.

Adblocking, old man yells at cloud
I grew up on dialup. 1200bps, max. I remember what it was like to get anything done at that speed, and now that it's no longer a thing I wouldn't inflict it upon anyone. That's why I try to keep my stuff as lightweight as possible, with as few deps as possible.
Treat others as you'd want to be treated, right?
A couple of years back I went to an HTML5 meetup and hung out with a bunch of web developers. I suck at web design (so much so that I didn't bother to try to write a new theme for my website, I used one that someone else made and tweaked it a little). One of the webdevs noticed that I use a couple of adblockers and yelled at me for taking money out of his mouth. That one cannot eat money, and that he gets paid a (much larger) salary (than I do) is beside the point.
So I put my laptop on the local network (Windbringer had been tethered to my mobile - OPSEC, ya' know) and asked him for the URL of the website he works on. He gave it to me. I opened it in a bare Firefox profile (no addons, no config tweaks, new right out of the box). His precious website loaded fully after just under three minutes.
Then, to make things fair, I rebooted Windbringer, got back on the local wireless, and opened it in my usual Firefox profile, with all the adblockers turned on. His website loaded in about five seconds.
"Your website loads so much tracking garbage up front that your page won't load in less than three minutes. I don't have time for that." And I left.
Unsurprisingly, I haven't been invited back, but my point stands - too much crap means your page won't load in a reasonable period of time.
@r000t see you there?
@kf Maybe save your some headache I worked through yesterday: hydroxide only works one direction at a time right now (and I'm told its imap sync is dangerous). However, because aerc can use imap but not smtp through protonmail-bridge, hyroxide makes a perfect complement. I'm using aerc with protonmail-bridge for imap and hydroxide for smtp...
Possibly more convoluted than necessary for email but then again it's ProtonMail so that's a given....
@sir What do you think about shipping a "PRO" badge ala GitHub, or something similar that paid users could choose to display on their profiles? Might drive payments?
@sir I can only imagine. Your output is tremendous and the rest of us are all benefiting heavily! sway+aerc+sr.ht are some of my favorite tools, and your blog is always insightful and challenging. Thank you, truly.
@sir imap+insecure fixed reading my (ProtonMail) emails in aerc — awesome! I am digging around the man page and source, but I don't see anything similar for smtp. aerc asks me to add starttls to accounts.config, and if I do, it complains about the untrusted cert. Any tips? @kf Did you get it working?
