    The last paragraph is the important part, don't skip it!

    I use offlineimap for this, and if all your email is accidentally deleted on the server, offlineimap will happily delete the email stored locally because it just wants to sync. I believe getmail will do the same. Treat the local email folder as the thing you are backing up and use a tool to incrementally copy it elsewhere.

    For reference, here's my .offlineimaprc: https://txt.t0.vc/EURM

    Do you use Trilium on your phone? I recently tried migrating all my notes to Trilium, but found that the mobile site just wasn't good enough to use. The bottom few lines of the tree and every note...

    I wrote my own meta-aggregator at news.t0.vc. I pretty much browse only that. It helps me limit my time scrolling.

    Try Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolfenstein:_Enemy_Territory). It was published in 2003 by Activision and the entire source code was released under GPL in 2010. There's still quite a few active servers, 68.232.172.16 for example.

    TTK can be pretty long if you aren't getting headshots, however.

    I spent a lot of time searching for a font that I liked to read long articles in. What I came up with are these settings:

    Font: Apparatus SIL
    Size: 1.2 rem (I want a little bigger for my eyes)
    Line Height: 1.5
    Line Length: 70 characters max
    Spacing / Weight: leave normal

    That's a serif font for article bodies. The rest of the interface I like to be in sans-serif. Here's what it ends up looking like:

    How did you come up with them?

    Sounds similar to my all-time favourite game, Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. Its entire source code was released under GPL (I think some of the assets are still proprietary, though).

    Since they're both Q3 engine, it would be cool if you made Wolf:ET maps / mods compatible with your game. There's a gigantic volume of community-made things out there you can use. It would sure save you a lot of work!

    Maybe call it Adlernest (Adlerhorst) or Braundorf (Braunsdorf)?
