So, anyone want to talk about how they're setting up .muttrc these days


PS (I'm getting Tony's data from Daravinne tonight, by the way, but I'll
probably have to buy  a USB drive to do it. It is not nice to lose access
to data. Much of our life is data now. It's why it is important to
understand the science, the practice, and the policies that influence it.

We still sadly live in a world where no matter how many declaiming emails
you post, justice and the fine things of life rarely arrive except through
the intervention of actual people, very often people who you have
disregarded as fools, unfeeling bystanders, or enemies. Noisebridge is good
for soldering, but it cannot solve your life problems quite yet.

Working on it.)
