  • I feel maybe that's a dovecot issue? Or a spamassassin issue?

    In my setup it seems "normal" that spam sent to aliases gets in the "catch all" instead of the mailbox of the user that has that alias. Very infuriating as I had to tune down the spam filter to block only the most obvious spam as false positives get "lost"

    Although since 3-4 months ago I didn't receive any misdirected spam in the catch-all mailbox, so it might be that's now it has been fixed (I'm one of those guys that run updates automatically unattended because my hobby is fixing problems when there's a breaking feature after update)

  • BREAKING NEWS: EU Commission announces preliminary tariffs up to 38% on Chinese EVs
  • so:

    • car dealers don't want to sell EVs, you need to push them otherwise they'll try to sell an ICE model
    • car makers have collectively decided that EV = luxury vehicle that must be sold at least for 45k
    • car makers don't really want to make EVs - when the government they introduce a tax subsidy, they increase the price by that exact amount (VW Up for example, they decided that it could be never to sold 5k over the ICE model - when the government increased the subsidy, VW increased the price, and when the subsidy rose to 13k they discontinued the model as it would cannibalize sales of other models)
    • charge point operators just want to get the european funds to install chargers, but then they're going to neglect any kind of maintenance, to the point that for enelx fast chargers it's the norm to find them broken or out of service and the exception when they work as intended.
    • charge point operators also don't really want to sell electricity, so they set a 2000% markup. Paying electricity for 1 euro per kwh it's like paying gas at 3 euro per liter
    • charge point operators have collectively decided that in order to pay for the charge, customers must use the most user-unfriendly process as possible. Can't just accept credit card at the POS with lower fees, no, must register on the proprietary app, search for the charger on the map that almost always requires google play services, find it, guess which of the 8 pins on the map is the right one, hope that unlocks, and so on.

    it's almost a miracle that you can see people driving an EV in italy

  • Arm warns of actively exploited flaw in Mali GPU kernel drivers
  • I wish phones had a standard bootloader that allows to run a standard os that doesn't require custom images

    "Apt get" and you get patched forever instead of having to buy a new phone every few years or placing all the trust on the stranger that compiles the image of your custom ROM

  • Auto nuova: quali accessori devo (o sarebbe utile) avere?
  • Cacciavite

    I produttori di auto sono così taccagni che ora non includono niente. Prima c'era un kit con le lampade di ricambio e un cacciavite a taglio/croce, oltre a cric e chiave inglese. Ora ti danno la bomboletta con la schiuma per fare 500 metri verso il gommista in caso di emergenza e basta, per tutto il resto c'è il carro attrezzi che è comodo da chiamare col pulsante dedicato vicino allo specchietto retrovisore

    Il martelletto col taglia cinture è "inutile" a meno che non lo metti in posizione fissa prominente. Ti serve solo in casi di emergenza tipo se caschi in un lago, e se l'hai messo nel cassetto del cruscotto non riusciresti a trovarlo prima di morire

  • How an Israeli raid freed 4 hostages and killed scores of Palestinians in Gaza
  • I can guarantee we will be hearing more about it.

    Huh? Ratios of 300 innocents per 1 terrorists killed are now the norm and we are definitely not hearing more about. It gets buried by the next "accident" where by "accident" destroy a hospital/school/refugee camp full of people

  • Prezzi veicoli usati

    Mi si è spaccato il radiatore sul mio mezzo di trasporto privato, quindi sono andato a vedere tra i concessionari qualcosa di economico, considerando di rottamare il mio.

    Avevo visto la pubblicità della panda che costa 9700 euro nuova. (Comunque ingannevole perché mostra una foto della panda cross full optional che costa quasi il doppio)


    Dice il concessionario, no quel prezzo non esiste , la panda viene 16mila euro poi noi facciamo un bello sconto di 3000. Bello! Lo sconto di 3000 in realtà però lo mette lo stato...

    Ho chiesto se c'era qualcosa di usato. Dice no, tutto l'usato costa più del nuovo. E mi ha portato a vedere tutte le panda usate che ha nel parcheggio col prezzo sul parabrezza. Tutte ex noleggio, 14000 se pagate in contanti o 12500 se pagate con la loro formula "96 rate + 3 anni di super Kasko" che te la farà pagare 25mila. Ehi ma due tagliandi sono in regalo! Certo perché ha senso fare i tagliandi su un'auto fuori garanzia (olio e filtri comunque te li fanno pagare)

    Alla fine mi mostra la panda usata più economica che ha. (Quella in foto iniziale) Me la venderebbe a quasi 1000 euro in più di quanto sarebbe costata nuova, con 8 anni e 70mila km in più.


    Sono andato via con un "ci penso" e sono andato da un altro concessionario. Stessa storia stessi prezzi

    Non riesco proprio a capire la logica di questi prezzi - c'è qualcuno che compra mezzi di trasporto pagandoli così? O è "scacchi 4d" per cercare di dirottare l'acquirente a comprare un "salotto su ruote" in leasing "visto che costa poco più al mese". La panda usata in 96 rate con Taeg 8% ha una rata simile a un SUV...

    Recommend a server-side email classifier
  • Yes but in this case it's something that parses stuff received from internet, not a calculator or a sudoku app. There's a tiny chance that a specially crafted email could be exploited. It's very unlikely that it would be explicitly targeted as it's a niche app that now gets less than a download a day, but still IMHO it's dangerous.

    On the fdroid community I once recommended to everyone a 100% offline app that generated generic images for contacts without pictures and because it was abandoned in 2018 I was downvoted by many who would say "what if an attacker with some top tier social engineering skill persuaded you to use a specially crafted exploited image as a contact picture on your phone, then when you used this app to parse existing picture, the 6 years old image library would be exploited and your phone hacked??" - something that has the same probability of "what if the same day you found on the ground a winning lottery ticket a meteorite hits the ground, bounces back all the stairs and hits you while waiting the subway pushing you on an incoming train?"

  • Self hosted cloud with mac app that can sync and filestream (similar to google drive)
  • I wonder if finally would be possible to have decent SMB browsing speeds when there are thousands of directories on a non-apple SMB server, as the system file browser checks all the subdirectories for resource forks.

    At work the guy that insisted for a Mac takes 3+ minutes to load the main share with 10k directory, while on windows/Linux is instant.

  • Self hosted cloud with mac app that can sync and filestream (similar to google drive)
  • Syncthing copies the whole directory content, not just what you need.

    OP is asking probably because of the outrageous apple SSD prices. For reference, swapping the 256gb SSD on the $700 Mac mini with a 2tb one costs $1000. And it's soldered on the motherboard so you have to decide when you buy it.

    Because drive and RAM size on apple computers is simply unaffordable (even in 2014 buying 1,75tb of solid storage would have costed less than this!), many users need to be conscious on what to locally save on the drive.

    It's probably to push users to iCloud as it's optimized to keep everything online and occupy as less space as possible

  • Windows just changed my desktop wallpaper and re-added the search bar without my permission after an update
  • Maybe it's a regional thing. After all the function primary purpose is to serve ads (sponsored content) and drive visits to bing, so there's a chance that this malware-like behavior is enabled only in specific countries that drive more ad revenue

  • Windows just changed my desktop wallpaper and re-added the search bar without my permission after an update
  • maybe you need to try again.


    1. install any windows 10 version released before october 2023
    2. disable the search bar
    3. install KB5015684 (or wait 2-3 days for it install automatically)
    4. windows has added back the search bar "for your convenience"
  • Russia's biggest energy company says it'll take it at least 10 years to recover gas sales lost because of the Ukraine war
  • yes but with the immense amount on money that they literally blew in ukraine + all the money they're losing with sanctions they could have done some geoengineering megaproject to transform a similarly sized amount of land already in their possession into grain farms

  • Google can keep your phone if you send it in for repair with non-OEM parts

    In its services and repair terms and conditions, Google says it will keep devices sent in for repair if they have a non-OEM part.

    Torna il leak McDonald's

    Anche per questo Summer days qualcuno su xiaohongshu (un clone di reddit+Twitter cinese) ha postato il leak delle promozioni

    Did tiktok change something?

    I have friends that send me tiktok links via whatsapp and then they ask questions about it like "what do you think, scam or not". I used to open them with cookies rejected in ddg browser but now it pretends to freeze after 4 seconds of play, then it says that i must open it in the app and replaces the "play" button with a fake button that leads to google play.

    I assume that there's no way to watch it anymore without an account and without the app, right?


    Syncthing saved my ass

    Note for Americans: here WhatsApp is the de facto communication standard. Literally nobody uses SMS/iMessage/Facebook messenger/signal. And carriers still charge 2 euro for a MMS which completely kills iMessage/RCS (if accidentally send MMS, it's expensive)

    I switched phones and instead of copying manually /Android/data/media/com.whatsapp I used the new feature of pairing via qr code.

    Besides that's a not very well designed feature (you need to start transfer on the old phone before logging in the new phone) because they really want to store unencrypted backups on Google drive, the transfer completed in a short time.

    Maybe too fast, I was expecting at least one hour to transfer the 5000 photos 10gb, instead it completed in 20 seconds.

    So I told myself, ok photos not transferred, I'll just do that manually and directly put them in the photo archive on my PC rather than keep them mixed with all the "happy holidays" trash.

    I browse the old phone to /Android/data/media/com.whatsapp and... It's empty. Wiped clean after the "successful" transfer process!

    Luckily I had set syncthing (the fork on fdroid, the one on play store doesn't have access to whole storage) to have a full overnight backup! On my PC I still had all the photos, almost deleted too as I noticed that I didn't set the "trash can" option

    Conclusion: go to download syncthing fork from fdroid and have a safety net from mistakes like this


    Olio di Sansa?

    Ciao avete mai provato l'olio di Sansa? Per me ho sempre preso l'extra vergine, però ho fatto un errore

    Domattina vengono a trovarmi degli amici coreani che fanno un giro turistico dell'Europa (o un tour de force direi, magari potrei fare un post ulteriore domani)

    Mi dicono che passano a trovarmi e se posso comprare un po' di roba per loro che la vorrebbero e non riescono a trovare il tempo per andare al supermercato. Mi mandano una lista colossale. Ho pochissimo tempo quindi invece di andare al supermercato vado al penny market. Torno a casa con 15kg di cibo mediocre e vedo che invece dell'olio extravergine ho comprato l'olio di Sansa, tanicone da 5 litri: hanno espressamente richiesto il tanicone di acciaio ed era l'unico sullo scaffale, e avevo solo 5 minuti prima della chiusura, non mi sono accorto del problema

    Avete mai provato quest'olio? Quanto è terribile se usato crudo su bruschette? Meglio dire che era esaurito o faccio finta di nulla? Per confronto una volta gli diedi una bottiglia di spumante dolce e per loro era una delicatezza assoluta da finire subito a gozzate

    L'odio insensato contro le biciclette

    Sono andato a lavoro in bicicletta. Grazie alla lungimiranza della pianificazione stradale a misura di auto, ci sono due modi di arrivare a destinazione:

    1. allungare di 3 km
    2. fare 200 metri contromano

    La strada è stretta e le auto vanno veloci, quindi vado sul marciapiede. Attenzione però. La città è a misura di auto, quindi è uno di quei marciapiedi larghi 20 cm. SPINGO la bicicletta a mano. Non pedalo, SPINGO e quindi vado alla stessa velocità di un pedone. Arriva un pedone dall'altra parte, nessun problema, tanto sto SPINGENDO la bici, scendo dal minimarciapiede per fare passare meglio. Si incazza! "Voi ciclisti di merda!!! Questo è contromano, non si può andare sul marciapiede!!!"

    Ma che CAZZO vuole??? Sto SPINGENDO la bici!!! Sono equivalente a una mamma che spinge un passeggino, anche per lei è vietato???

    A quel punto arriva anche il paladino della situazione e che si deve far vedere splendido e che pensando che io andassi a 30 sui minimarciapiedi inizia ad attaccarmi "io chiamo la polizia, guidare così è mortale!!!"

    Ma mortale di cosa??? Ma hai visto che cosa è successo? Guarda proprio te che stai passeggiando su un marciapiede di 20 cm con un labrador gigante, stai prendendo molto più spazio di me che SPINGO la mia bicicletta!

    Mi viene voglia di seguire il consiglio di land rover e parcheggiare la portaerei di 6 metri sul marciapiede come fanno tutti per "dominare la città"

    Vengon fatte piste ciclabili e la gente si incazza perché le strade sono più strette e ci sono meno parcheggi, ma allo stesso tempo esigono che chi va in bicicletta prenda una pista ciclabile fantasma


    Someone purchased the old domain of a FOSS app, then it's using it to deceive users to download adware

    One of those two sites is distributing adware. Which of them?

    File Converter (FOSS) by Adrien Allard was hosted on file-converter[.]org since a decade. Then someone a few weeks ago snatched that domain and it's now distributing adware. Almost identical design for the page, 100% designed to deceive users to download a different product, as it's called Zamzar.


    Batteries in a disposable lip gloss dispenser

    Google Cloud accidentally deletes a financial institution account due to ‘unprecedented misconfiguration’ Google Cloud accidentally deletes UniSuper’s online account due to ‘unprecedented misconfiguration’

    Super fund boss and Google Cloud global CEO issue joint statement apologising for ‘extremely frustrating and disappointing’ outage

    Google Cloud accidentally deletes UniSuper’s online account due to ‘unprecedented misconfiguration’

    A week of downtime and all the servers were recovered only because the customer had a proper disaster recovery protocol and held backups somewhere else, otherwise Google deleted the backups too

    Google cloud ceo says "it won't happen anymore", it's insane that there's the possibility of "instant delete everything"


    Make your contacts less anonymous with Micopi

    I turned on my old HTC espresso after a decade and I remembered that I loved this app.

    It creates an unique profile image for contacts without a profile picture

    So now when you open the contact list instead of having a list of capital letters in a circle you have a list of capital letters in a more colorful circle

    Unfortunately it's now outdated and discontinued, but it still works on Android 14.

    Seems like some asshole took the source code and republished the app as is, without credit, in the Amazon app store to get some financial incentive (around 2014 blackberry paid devs to republish their apps and many assholes decided that it was a good idea to "steal" open source apps)

    After this, dev took development private but then got tired of the update treadmill that Google forces on the play store, so the apps were automatically delisted.

    Luckily, fdroid doesn't have such artificial limitations on outdated apps that still work as intended.


    Arrivano i piani energetici a costo fisso: solo a me paiono una truffa colossale? Fastweb entra nel mercato dell’energia elettrica

    Per i nuovi clienti Fastweb Energia è disponibile in tre profili sulla base dei consumi annui con canone mensile bloccato per 12 mesi.

    Fastweb entra nel mercato dell’energia elettrica

    Include anche le tasse e il costo del trasporto, però mi pare assurdo pagare una quota fissa a prescindere dal consumo. Se sfori il consumo che avevi concordato l'anno precedente, l'eccedenza è fatturata a quasi il 1000% sopra il PUN, e se invece consumi meno di quanto avevi concordato, regali soldi all'utility.

    Quasi nessuno è in grado di poter stabilire con un anno di anticipo il consumo previsto, a meno che non sia per esempio una server room con consumi costanti nel tempo

    Ondsel without registration?

    I hate registering to websites. Especially when it's just to download FOSS.

    It looks like there's no way to download Ondsel without registering?


    I decided that I will update the nextcloud (windows) desktop client once or twice a decade

    I've enough.

    Last year the automatic updater was rebooting windows without any warning after the uac prompt. The problem continued for months before being fixed

    This year I got an update a week. Very annoying to get the same "why u no reboot? I need updates" question every single time I turn on my PC.

    Today when updating it kills explorer.exe without any confirmation and doesn't bring it back to life.

    I don't think that their paid enterprise customers are doing the beta alpha testers like this. Is it really necessary to push nightlies to end users? It can't be tested casually for a couple of days then pushed?

    I disabled the updates check and will update the nextcloud desktop client manually every 5 years if I can remember. Added an exception to Winget so it doesn't update it. I lost my patience.
