In-reply-to » I did not know that, but I just found out that you can set rules for emails through the online email access in icloud.com Media

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Good question. I don’t know. Does it take time to for the rules to get active? I have not made that experience. I set up a rule and it worked 2 minutes later when iI sent a test email.

In addition to that, important files are regularly put on a USB Flash Drive that is part of the red emergency binder, which also holds all latest documents and insurance documents on paper (printouts). In case of a fire, all I need is to grab the smartphone, the red emergency binder and run! (actually, the binder is yellow nowadays. It was red in the past :-))

@movq@www.uninformativ.de I have a NAS from Synology. I personally use a mix of Veracrypt containers/Veracrypt encrypted USB Flash Drives (do not have the money for an IronKey) and RESTIC backup repositories. The NAS makes backups to Synology C2 cloud solution. The backup there is encrypted, but for additional security the sensitive data is inside Veracrypt containers. So this is the 3-2-1 rule. Three backups, 2 on-site, 1 off-site. ½

Access is guaranteed through online interface with double authentication. So hopefully, I will never loose my smaphone :-)

I think I know it: Cut out the Commonwealth Bank Image and did an image search. Found the building in Brisbane. Should be “180 Brisbane” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/180_Brisbane) (Ann Street corner Edward Street. Walked down a bit and turn around (https://www.google.com/maps/@-27.4657624,153.0270054,3a,75y,240.09h,109.29t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sKgrG4wseMKJuySfvWoUpAQ!2e0!7i16384!8i8192)

In-reply-to » Good hint: > Don’t write fragile programs. The core logic for this example is relatively short. Of the 22 lines inside the for loop, 6 of them implement the actual algorithm and the other 16 are error checking and data validation. You might be tempted to not validate incoming data or check errors, but doing so produces unstable, unmaintainable code. Error handling is what separates the professionals from the amateurs.

@prologic@twtxt.net Hi, thanks for the hint, but I cannot get the stuff working with the template.HTML thing. I was also looking for an example, but converting markdown to HTML and then use it in a struct to be rendered by a template seems to be impossible to me.

In-reply-to » @movq I usually only use eggs for baking or fry them for potatoes and spinach. @prologic Why don't you have them anymore? Did the fox get them all when the door didn't close in time? ]:->

Eggs are nice. Add them to salad, in the morning, sunny side over, mixed with left over potatoes in the pan the next day.

In-reply-to » hi guys. I am trying to solve the following problem in Go: I have a go template that just uses {{.Body}} or {{printed "%s" .Body}} for output. on the go side I am using templates.ExecuteTemplate(w,"view.html",data) as input. the data.Body is a []byte which contains valid HTML. The problem is, in the browser, or the templates.Execute only send escaped text to the browser. But it should not so I can create html on the server side

@prologic@twtxt.net mmh OK. so inside the struct instead of []byte I use template.HTML let me try

In-reply-to » Media View from up the ladder, it's quite a way down (5 metres to be exact). You can see the cable clearly.

I see more a problem when the net is set up that it will pull the poles to the middle and then all if it just might crash?!?! The poles should be secured with 45° angled ropes to the outside.

In-reply-to » Reaching 700M Active Users, Telegram Announces 'Premium' Tier "Telegram became one of the top-5 downloaded apps worldwide in 2022 and now has over 700 million monthly active users," they announced this weekend. "This growth is solely from personal recommendations — Telegram has never paid to advertise its apps."

@prologic@twtxt.net This is what I face every day when people ask me why I do not have WhatsApp anymore. I tell them then: please send email! Or Signal, Threema, Element(matrix), IRC. So strange. And I feel old and sad the Email got degraded to a “retrieve password” service.
