So, I think that nasty #Mailpile bug is now fixed. A race condition was causing Mailpile to "forget" how to find certain e-mails. Usually temporarily, but still not great.

A bunch of related bad behaviours got fixed too, and I added a tool for manually tweaking metadata. So troubleshooting nasty low-level problems should be easier in the future.

Turns out it's almost 2 months since I pushed any code. Yikes. The burnout is real.

But... yay progress!

Don't be. You're doing valuable work and there's no need to let people stress you out for free. I set an expectation that commercial users pay me on my project's web sites now.

I might help non-paying users, because they found interesting bugs, or there's money left over from paying users, or because I'm feeling nice, but I don't have to—my time is valuable, and I don't owe random consumers of my work anything.

It is capable of handling 500 transactions per second and you don't need to run your own client.

Great talk on upload filters. Copyright laws are often used to censor political speech.

Great points on copyright on music.

My take: We need to disintermediate process of moving money from consumers / patrons to creators. Multitudes of models are possible. Flattr 2.0 sans censorship possibility anyone?

Oldie but goodie! Bret Weinsteain on Joe Rogan podcast #1055. Game A vs game B is an interesting concept!

Props on engaging those two racists. "Racism is discrimination + institutional power" is a hell of a drug.
