Re: RaptorCS POWER9 Blackbird PC: An expensive mistake 9 hours ago

From Drew DeVault to ~sircmpwn/public-inbox

Hey Merlin, thanks for sharing your feedback. Have you seen my follow-up
article?

https://drewdevault.com/2019/10/10/RaptorCS-redemption.html

In short, Raptor corrected all of my issues, including the poor support
experience. I agree that the original article may have been harmful -
but I think in the long run, with this follow-up taken into
consideration, the effects are positive. Raptor's support system was
totally broken, and they've overhauled it and implemented more
self-service options. I see that as a win.

To help offset the negative effects of the first article, I also reached
out to the Hacker News moderators and asked for a little help putting

I plan on moving to migadu once they finish the improvements they've

Hey Simon, good point, but I don't think you should be rewarding this
behavior by spending money on products like this.

I actually ended up reverting this - it causes all of my messages to

Thanks! I still have two issues with this.

1. The docs should be added together with the feature in the same
   commit - please rebase.
2. Using this command causes my IMAP connection to immediately EOF.

Re: [PATCH] Add Templates 4 days ago

From Drew DeVault to ~sircmpwn/aerc

Okay, so you mentioned this in the ticket and went with the easier
approach - but hear me out. If we put this into the composor and make it
work for replies, we can generalize this nicely by using golang text
templates. Then, the default reply template becomes something like this:

On {{.Date}}, {{.From.Name}} wrote:
{{quote(.Original)}}

{{cursor()}}

I don't recall exactly how text templates work, but something like this.
The quote function would quote and wrap the original email at 72
columns, and the cursor() function would emit an empty string but would
magically record the current index and move the cursor there.

We have something similar in the mailing list archives with the
'details' thing. I'd just like to explore it, let's put together a patch
with a dropdown and if it's not good, then we won't do it, but we can't
know until we try.
