General Software Discussion / UXP Mail&News client
« on: September 14, 2018, 02:44 AM »
From PaleMoon forum:

Since we've got a solid platform to build on now and people have started using it to create their own alternative clients based on it, I'd like to draw the attention to a donation collection effort that is currently on-going to develop and launch a fully-capable e-mail, usenet news and feed client building on UXP and being based on Thunderbird prior to their descent into the limited realm of WebExtensions and "modern Mozilla".

If the Thunderbird Council will not listen to what its users need, then we will!

Please see here for details about this effort and how to chip in/donate. Tobin, our Communicator specialist and prior contributor to the SeaMonkey project will be spearheading this effort. Of course everything will be Open Source under the MPL, as usual.

This effort will directly replace FossaMail for the gap it has filled in the past. Despite pleas to revive it, I simply don't have the time to do so. Instead, please support this new client!

Thanks for your attention.

I supported the project.

Apologies if I posted this in the wrong area - please move as see fit.

General Software Discussion / Microsoft and Skype atrocity
« on: July 12, 2017, 05:40 AM »
I am at loss of words.

First this:

Then this:

And then, few days ago Skype stopped working for me on my devices using their own god damn OS, namely Nokia Lumia 920 and Surface RT. The only reason I got those in the first place was that I thought Microsoft's products and services would work better. And they did, until they started messing around. Oh boy. Oh boy, not entertained when something I paid for stops working and I am told that "huh, tough luck?".

Doesn't really put a lot of trust in Microsoft and its new direction. Great, great.

Living Room / Email Naming Convention for Personal Website
« on: July 23, 2016, 10:32 AM »
I've been contemplating a personal domain for some years now, but until now it wasn't justified by the volume of work I did. Since it did significantly increase this year, I finally bought it a week or two ago.

Besides learning WordPress by doing all kinds of silly mistakes, I got stuck on ridiculous, but important thing - how should I name my e-mail?

I do a lot of e-mailing, back-and-forth, and on different professional levels. Start-ups don't really care, but corporate clients do.

Did some research, and I definitely don't like naming it like:

[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]

I kind of liked:

[email protected] (favourite)
[email protected]
[email protected]

My domain is first letter of my name followed by my full surname and then .com.

I'd like to hear your experiences. What did you use, or encountered, that you've found professional and thought it sounds good?

General Software Discussion / Mozilla Thunderbird Cheatsheet
« on: June 30, 2016, 09:34 AM »
Since Mozilla Thunderbird is my main client and I use it everyday, I decided to finally learn some proper keyboard shortcuts. After digging through the net I couldn't really find a nice printable list, so I made one myself.

Feel free to use it. Download link ยป (
