Good morning everyone!
صباح الخير للجميع.

Today I got promoted to IT manager position after my proposal got approved by the management to use multiple open source solutions and replace propriety products the company is using.

Tests went well and they were happy with the services. I will be handling the migration and training for the coming months.

To thank the wonderful open source community I will be donating a part of my pay for the coming 3 months.

سنة هجرية سعيدة.
Happy New Year!

Today I worked out so good I have sweat coming out of my running shoes.

#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.

It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.

It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.

It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.

It's not how e-mail should work.

Consider dropping GMail.

My favourite bash alias for git

Here's a non-trivial bash alias that I use in my day-to-day git workflow you might find handy.

These last weeks I started jogging in Parc Murdoch at Casablanca.

I noticed there is a significant number of Asians practicing sports there.

I would like to know what is your favourite Gnome 3 setup?

A few weeks ago I posted here that the #decentralized blogging platform @PlumeDev had some of its right-to-left (RTL) rendering issues fixed by @ahangarha. I myself had also fixed many little CSS issues related to #RTL for @Mastodon in the past.

Well, expect such kinds of things to happen less often in the future, since #GitHub has mass-blocked many accounts of Iranians* at various levels; This applies not only to Iranian residents, but also sometimes to Iranians living abroad.

* And not only for #Iran, but also for #Cuba, #Syria, #NorthKorea, and #Crimea.

Remember when a bunch of us were lamenting the end of #GitHub as a (somewhat) neutral development platform for #FreeCode development, after it got bought by #McSoft, and lots of people were trying to tell us it was fine? Now they're enforcing racist trade sanctions on behalf of the US government:

Now I'm not one to say I told you so, but it's even clearer now how important code forge federation projects like #ForgeFed and #SourceHut are.

There are so many genres out there. But I have yet to see sports relate ones. For example:
Brutal Death Kicks Metal for combat sports.
Polish Heavy Weight Metal for weight lifting.
Epic Body Transcendental Metal for body building, calisthenics, and men's physique.
Symphonic Power Lifting Metal for Olympic and power lifting and other a.
Speed / Thrash Running Metal for jogging and running.

mastodon.social is updated to latest master! New user-facing things:

You can load more search results, you can use "phrase match" in search and exclude words or phrases by prepending a minus; new users see a minimal UI and are able to change their e-mail before confirming e-mail/getting approved; autosuggestions for hashtags show up and show how much each tag has been used in the past week; probably other stuff I forgot

Other: mastodon.social is also now no longer compatible with OStatus

Did jump on the opportunity where Iranians are getting banned from ?
