      I've noticed that Tildes autolinks any string that looks like an e-mail address, which is a good idea, but breaks down for Fediverse identities; for example, @tindall@cybre.space, an ActivityPub Actor on the server cybre.space, is presented as an @ sign followed by the email address tindall@cybre.space. It would probably be better if this didn't highlight at all, or actually linked to that actor (https://cybre.space/@tindall).

      I know we have had a few Tildes discussions about places that we go to for more traditional media websites, but I think email newsletters are a nice way of getting some topical news and links to your inbox every day/week and I am curious what, if any, my fellow tildoes are subscribed to.

      Having recently installed OpenBSD, "join the mailing list" is a piece of advice I've come across a few times now. But being a hip young teenager unfamiliar with what exactly that entails, I thought I'd go through how I've attempted to do that as a sort of sanity check, as some of you old farts will probably be much more familiar with them than I am.

      First, I went to the OpenBSD Mailing Lists page and scrolled down to the "Managing list membership via the web" section, which took me here. After following the sign up instructions and logging in to my email to confirm my registration, I attempted to navigate to the misc mailing server, at which point I subscribed to that specific list and again confirmed my subscription.

      So, I'm relatively sure I'm now subscribed to the "misc" OpenBSD mailing list. However my question is mainly...what exactly do I do now? Specifically, will new messages in misc automatically go to my inbox, or is there something else that must be done? I'm relatively sure the webpage can't be used to access messages from the mailing list.

      relevant blog post

      teknik.io is a website that provides services like email, [encrypted] file uploads, Git repos, blogs, URL shortening, and more. I've used them for a few years and they're wonderful. It's all open-source and privacy conscious, maybe some Tildes users would like it?

      Registration is usually invite-only, but it's open for a few hours.

      Thanks @duckoverflow for mentioning this.

      Edit: also their privacy policy is short, simple, and easy-to-read if anyone is interested in that. I'd consider it a great example of what a privacy policy should be.

    6. Invite code privacy

      ~ takes privacy pretty seriously, which I’m a big fan of. Can’t say I’ve seen any other sites where even your email is hashed, but I like it.

      What I’m curious about are the invite codes. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think Deimos is going to do anything nefarious, but I did use one of my personal (albeit secondary) emails to request my invite code. Thus, would it be possible to trace the invite code used to create my account back to that email in any way? Or is the code not stored anywhere once it’s used?

      Edit: yes, I realize this account uses my real name, and I’ve linked to my personal gitlab before. For the time being in a community this small, I don’t mind. I may end up creating a new account when the website opens the floodgates, but that’s neither here nor there.
