@tomasino No luck :/ I'll keep trying... Thanks for the help

@tomasino That is pretty much what I did, but unfortunately I still get an authentication error when connecting to mx.sdf.org:587.

I hear that only some kinds of accounts can use this service, is there a practical way for me to check which "account type" I have?

Does anybody know how do I configure SMTP for my SDF e-mail? I'm currently able to fetch mail using offlineimap, but I cannot send using SMTP on Emacs.

I tried every tutorial available that there is, and configured my secret with mkvpm, but my authentication just gets refused...

@JK008 Good advice. I was thinking about having OpenBSD as my next system anyway.

I can't even begin to express how revigorating it is to solve a problem with NVIDIA and Xorg stuff on Linux.

At the same time, fuck NVIDIA for not supporting Fermi cards anymore.

It isn't "serverless" if you all use Amazon's servers.

I've spent so much time on my computer building stuff that I've become way too opinionated to listen to someone saying something I do not agree, e.g. "C is a primitive language". Hope it's not too late to change.

It's like, you kind of feel the urge to raise a finger and start explaining, but you're not sure where to begin, and then you realize the best course of action is to just shut the hell up and let them think whatever they want.

Funny thing is, I was writing a C program at the same time I was listening to that.

Heard a magnificent conversation on college today:

1: "C is such a primitive language!"
2: "Yeah!"
1: "I prefer a more modern language such as Java"

i don't even

@ParadeGrotesque Oh, I mean it is a problem when it comes to installing on my actual hardware.

@ParadeGrotesque This actually encouraged me to test OpenBSD on a VM. Unfortunatelly, I cannot install it on my laptop due to NVIDIA being stupid, but it's nice to know more about another BSD.

why does everything have to be about a left and a right nowadays? let's just enjoy stuff we like to build and fuck the rest

Hmmmm, back home after eating a bunch of sushi. Couldn't ask for more

@JK008 It actually is quite appealing, really. I think I made more progress in it than SICP...

The amount of books I intend to buy exceeds way too much the amount of those books I can read per year.

One cannot simply hope to read GEB and SICP (w/exercises) while attending to college...

Well, it seems the whole Brazilian election thing infected my Telegram groups as well. I'd better bury my head in the sand until Monday morning.
Mastodon and SDF seem to be my last sane places.

welcome to PHP, where block scope does not exist and everything works "funny"

also, celery is now fruit

Jesus Christ why the heck do people HAVE to use Facebook for work-related stuff? I can't even view videos consistently on it.
