  6. ralphm argh. I have the most awesome mail in the summit mailinglist queue, awaiting approval.
  7. ralphm (it is slightly over the maximum size limit)
  8. Kev Is what you mean "Please, oh wonderous Kevin, release my mail"?
  9. Kev Because I think I can do that.
  10. Kev goes to look up passwords.
  11. ralphm Kev: yes, please
  12. Kev Mailman needs an "Accept mail, but give Ralph a slap on the wrist for making it too large" option :)
  13. ralphm It has a crucial image in one of the attached e-mails
  14. Kev This seems to be taking quite some time to make it to my inbox.
  15. ralphm Kev: I have it in my now. Thanks
  16. ralphm (my inbox)
  17. Kev I don't think you're the one that needs it :)
  18. ralphm True
  19. ralphm Kev: cool, huh?
  20. Kev I have no idea - still not got it.
  21. ralphm maybe it is in your spam folder :-)
  22. Kev Newp, already checked :)
  23. Kev It's possible that site5 have decided to reject it, on its way through to gmail.
  24. Kev I really need to get kismith.co.uk off site5.
  25. ralphm :-(
  26. ralphm I can send it to you directly
  27. Kev http://mail.jabber.org/pipermail/summit/2012-January/000820.html
  28. Kev Unfortunately, that still doesn't let me view the attachments.
  29. Kev Could you forward it to mail address that matches my JID, please? That'll bypass all my normal mail stuff, so should get through.
  30. Kev Fab, thanks.
  31. ralphm sent
  32. Kev Uhm.
  33. Kev Sure that was the right mail?
  34. Kev I just received a forward of one of my mails :)
  35. ralphm oh hah
  36. ralphm retry
  37. Kev Much better, thanks :)
  38. ralphm cool
  39. Kev Ok, so, now that we've worked around site5's braindamage...yes, that's absolutely awesome.
  40. ralphm hehe
  41. jef has joined
  42. Kev Now we have to find cool stuff to fill that with.
  43. ralphm right
  44. admin has joined
  45. admin hi guys
  46. admin sorry, was out
  47. admin what's up?
  48. Kev Seems we've got our realtime lounge :)
  49. admin ooh, awesome
  50. ralphm admin: check your e-mail
  51. Kev Unless your provider's hopeless. *grumble*
  52. ralphm (in the summit list)
  53. admin ooh, awesome!
  54. ralphm So I guess we need to get some beanbags
  55. admin yup
  56. admin Ikea has them for €29
  57. admin no idea where we can rent some
  58. ralphm and some kind of screens we could show some kind back channel, maybe not unlike the stuff I made at Mediamatic
  59. ralphm I'm trying to get that code released
  60. Kev Dave has a projector that I imagine he'll want to be taking.
  61. Kev I don't know if we could use it for that.
  62. ralphm loungerent maybe
  63. ralphm admin: but it might actually be cheaper to buy them
  64. Kev How many do we want? This doesn't sound like a lot of money.
  65. Kev Difficult decisions. If I migrate away from my current site5+gmail combo because site5 seem to suck, do I go completely selfhosted, or just selfhost postgres to forward to gmail the way I have site5 currently doing? Tricky.
  66. Kev Postgres?
  67. Kev Postfix :)

  77. kevin Kev: site5 is a good..Whats the problem with it?
  78. Kev I've had a few problems over the years. Them breaking sites and things.
  79. Kev The current issue is that their mail system is really quite daft and will reject any forwarded emails.
  80. kevin Oh
  81. kevin Kev: don't Google Apps - Gmal solve your problem?
  82. kevin Gmail*
  83. Kev I don't wish to use Google Apps.
  84. Kev My question was, regardless, rhetorical.
  85. kevin I used to hanlde my domain's mail via Google Apps for Business for quite a long time. Very simple setup, spam filters and management

  88. kevin Kev: you can setup an e-mail collector on your Gmail account instead of forwarding with site5
  89. Kev Sure, but a) That means giving passwords to gmail and b) I don't see that it achieves anything.
  90. kevin Kev: why would you mind giving passwords to gmail when you prefer it? assuming you forward from site5 not just to have a copy
  91. Kev This is somewhat of a lesser issue to it not solving the problem :)
  92. kevin brb..Good night all
