OK, a few email server questions for those in the know.

A default install by iRedMail has STARTTLS and SSL/TLS enabled for IMAP and only STARTTLS enabled for SMTP. I had always thought that SSL/TLS was the more secure protocol for email however, their documentation states that SMTPS is depreciated. From what I've read on the interwebz, STARTTLS should/could be considered insecure because the end user typically doesn't know if their connection has dropped to an unencrypted one. Is this correct?

I also have my postfix settings to force TLS connection on STARTTLS (port 587) as well as having the postscreen service monitoring port 25. And having postscreen running, forces port 587 to be used for SMTP. So, even if I was to use STARTTLS, my connection shouldn't drop to an unencrypted connection, right?

I need a better setup it seems. I can get signals from NOAA satellites and ISS but, they are too weak to do anything with. Think my quick discone antenna needs some beefing up (and a LNA (low noise amplifier)) and/or building a QFH antenna.

I was able to tune in a few local FM radio stations in the few minutes I had to mess with it. Think it's gonna be fun once I get a decent antenna set up for it.

Ohmerica by The Claypool Lennon Delirium from the album Monolith of Phobos

Ah-Omerica X 3

We know when you're sleeping and when you're awake,
and if you've been good you need not be afraid.
It's best not to question the things that you're told,
'cause we have got everything under con, under control.

Just Relax

And all of the tests that can shake our beliefs,
And if you don't like it well you can just leave.
Think George Washington evolved from an ape,
Then you should be locked up in the 51st state.

Ah-Omerica X 1

(We're all but dying?) the worlds on the brink,
that's just what the devil wants you to think.
Don't ever stop shoppin' don't ever give in,
If we stop shoppin', the terrorists win.

We know when you're sleeping and when you're awake,
and if you've been good you need not be afraid.
It's best not to question the things that you're told,
'cause we have got everything under con, under control.

Reading your mail and tapping your phone,
And if you don't like it we'll send in the drones.
Oh, say can you see, the twilight's last gleam,
Land of the free, the home of the naïve.

Ah-Omerica X 10

/u/jpope777 on How does drifting work ?

I think you are completely overthinking this.

Drift points and the cash earned from them are based on distance only. The angle and/or speed of the drift doesn't matter, just how long you drift.

The angle of drift only really affects your top speed. The greater the angle, the lower your top speed will be during the drift.

Nitro replenishment during a drift is lower than usage. If you drift while using nitro, you will be able to nitro longer at the cost of top speed.

I just installed XFCE on my laptop last week and I've suddenly started having this issue the past few (maybe 3 or 4) days as well. I haven't narrowed down the culprit just yet, had been leaning towards either lightdm or xfce power management.

Yeah, Vue seems to have better quality picture but, using it on Roku is horrible right now. Of course though, the Roku app just came out last week so, maybe it'll get updated sometime soon. If/when they add FSMW, I may consider switching.

The quality is pretty good, not sure it's 60 fps though. I have checked out PS Vue as well and that seems to have better quality than sling though but, FSMW isn't available currently.

Along with already having FSMW, SlingTV now has NBCSN. http://news.sling.com/press-release/company/sling-tv-debuts-new-single-stream-and-multi-stream-services-launches-nbc-usa

I didn't have sling during the hockey season but, I've been watching the Cards quite a bit lately and the service seems to work pretty good. With the addition of NBC, should be able to watch damn near all of the games next season.

/u/jpope777 on Is it possible to get the R34 without spending gold?

Easily. I spent less than 200 gold and ended up beating the final race with PR 685, and 90 of that was on a ticket refill. Grab plenty of conversion kits with event credits as you go along, those kits are hard to come by.

I'm really digging #sigurrosrouteone. Iceland is a beautiful country.

sigur rós – route one

throughout the entire course of tonight and tomorrow sigur rós will be unveiling a 24-hour ‘slow tv’ event live on iceland’s national television – and streaming live globally via youtube – set to a constantly evolving soundtrack based around elements of new song óveður.

starting at tonight’s summer solstice and continuing throughout the longest day of the year, ‘route one’ is a 1332km journey the whole way round iceland’s coastal ring road, broadcasting the trip live in its entirety, via national television channel rúv 2.

“in a day and age of instant gratification and everything moving so fast, we wanted to do the exact opposite,” says sigur rós’s jónsi birgisson. “slow tv is counter-active to the world we live in, in that it happens in real time and real slow.”

driving anti-clockwise round the island, the journey will pass by many of the country’s most notable landmarks, including vatnajökull, europe’s largest ice-sheet; the glacial lagoon, jökulsárlón; as well as the east fjords and the desolate black sands of möðrudalur.

the soundtrack to the journey is being created moment-by-moment via generative music software. the individual musical elements of unreleased song, and current sigur rós festival set opener, óveður, are seeded through the evolving music app bronze, to create a unique ephemeral sonic experience. headphones, external speakers and full-screen viewing are recommended.

Putting a mirrored window film on some of the windows in the house. I put some on the big picture window (left window in the photo) the other day and the kitchen stayed quite a few degrees cooler. Putting the film on the remaining windows that catch the most sun.

The window on the right in the photo doesn't have the film applied yet, you can tell by the difference in color from the incoming light.

An option to watch NHRA for cordcutters

I just came across the fact that Sling TV now has a multi-stream package with FS1. And, it has each event from the year so, if you want to go back and watch any races you missed, you can.

There is also Playstation Vue as well, and it's now available on Roku devices. It's a little more expensive but, you do get more channels. FS1 is available with all of the packages they have.

Not going to say that it's the best option but, I use Calibre for this. You can set it to download news (based off rss feeds) and automatically send it to your kindle. It's pretty easy to create a new news source (manual entry).

Calibre doesn't have a built-in recipe for The Intercept but, I did test the main rss feed and it seemed to work just fine.
