OK, so apparent backdating posts to fill in where I left off still shows up in actual post order in the Friends Feed.

*sigh*

What purpose is backdating then!?!?!

Sorry all.

Local Oven - Gluten Free Yummies

The guy at Local Oven reminds me of Saul Rubinek. You know, from Star Trek with a Veron-T disruptor? Also, from Warehouse 13 as Artie?

Also, their tortillas are awesome, more like flatbread, thicker.
They carry butter just fine.
Also, the brownies are great.

Evolution for Exchange Email
Josh 2014
xaminmo
Hrm. I read that Evolution could connect to Exchange. Supposedly, old versions would do ExtendedMAPI, and new versions will do EWS.

It's all lies. It doesn't handle local MailDirs properly (but I run IMAP, so that's not TOO bad), and when adding an EWS connection, nothing happens. Tests, apply, nothing added.

Maybe I can try DavMail again, but running multiple daemons (multiple accounts) seems bothersome.

IMAP mail archive fixed!
Josh 2014
xaminmo
yAy! My mail archive is fixed. Courier-imap-ssl has been flaky for a long time, but now, it turns out it's been very unhappy with current Thunderbird. Even after manually playing with the TLS settings, it was a beast.

So, I installed dovecot. One line for maildirs, one line for ssl enable, copy over my ssl keys, and set EXIM to use SASL instead of Courier. Poof. Everything *just works*.

While I was at it, I set Thunderbird sort and threading defaults (so I don't have to set it on every folder individually), and that also is wonderful.

I don't like having to subscribe to all of the folders manually (I have around 590 folders, one for each project, for each customer, for each partner, plus about 10 tech archives), but if I want it to save everything locally, I cannot just uncheck "show only subscribed folders" and expect it to work.

BUT, really, swapping over and doing all of the manual reconfig was way less time than trying to figure out why Courier was not working. (It was probably something to do with it not being updated any time in the last several updates I've tried.)

Now, I'd really like if TB would use an Outbox folder, rather than demanding SMTP, I could switch work over to IMAP vs Exquilla...

Fine Line

There's a fine line between a numerator and a denominator...

Flotsam and Jetsam
Josh 2014

* Flotsam is floating wreckage of a ship or its cargo.
* Jetsam is part of a ship, its equipment, or its cargo that is purposely cast overboard or jettisoned to lighten the load in time of distress and is washed ashore.
* Lagan (also called ligan) is goods or wreckage that is lying on the bottom of the ocean, sometimes marked by a buoy, which can be reclaimed.
* Derelict is cargo that is also on the bottom of the ocean, but which no one has any hope of reclaiming (in other maritime contexts, derelict may also refer to a drifting abandoned ship).

I hate Chase!
Josh 2014
xaminmo
* Cannot log in from my phone. I have a huge screen and google chrmne, but Chase forces me to a mobel webpage.
* It does not tell me this until after I have authenticated and gotten a code to authenticate again.
* It advertises the mobile app to me which is exactly the same functionality.
* I have to have multiple online IDs for multiple accounts.
* Text message for auth ID does not ever come through. I have gotten other messages.
* The id that works only shows balance and recent transactions.
* To view statements, I have to log in an additional time.
* Alerts show me the last 4 of an account number, but not any sort of friendly name. I have no idea which this is, because I do not memorize all of the account numbers everyone wants me to have.

This is all in addition to the spamming and and poor cust service I got last decade, and the cascade of fees and lies in the 1990s.

I only have them because of a rewards card, and most of the other banks have been bought/merged, or they close accounts not used often enough.

Today's PT
Josh 2004 Happy
xaminmo
I was little more sore yesterday and today in the nerve area, so no twisting PT today.

Instead, so much sweating! Squat sled, one-legged kickbacks, medicine ball crunches, Physio ball hip bridges, front planks (8x10s) and side planks (more like lifts with very little hold because SO WEAK). Feel good, and it was nice to sweat. I like having an appointment since it keeps me from putting it off for days, weeks, or forever.

OH, and there is just a tiny bit of a stitch that is fused with the skin, and it's been bugging me. I was able to pluck most of that off (not out, it's literally just stuck to it). Incision is good. No adhesions, and mashing any direction has very little discomfort.

Still weaker on the left side by probably 50%, but I'm confident that it will be 100% by next year, since everything "works".
