    argh. I have the most awesome mail in the summit mailinglist queue, awaiting approval.

  2. ralphm

    (it is slightly over the maximum size limit)

  3. Kev

    Is what you mean "Please, oh wonderous Kevin, release my mail"?

  4. Kev

    Because I think I can do that.

  5. Kev goes to look up passwords.

  6. ralphm

    Kev: yes, please

  7. Kev

    Mailman needs an "Accept mail, but give Ralph a slap on the wrist for making it too large" option :)

  8. ralphm

    It has a crucial image in one of the attached e-mails

  9. Kev

    This seems to be taking quite some time to make it to my inbox.

  10. ralphm

    Kev: I have it in my now. Thanks

  11. ralphm

    (my inbox)

  12. Kev

    I don't think you're the one that needs it :)

  13. ralphm


  14. ralphm

    Kev: cool, huh?

  15. Kev

    I have no idea - still not got it.

  16. ralphm

    maybe it is in your spam folder :-)

  17. Kev

    Newp, already checked :)

  18. Kev

    It's possible that site5 have decided to reject it, on its way through to gmail.

  19. Kev

    I really need to get kismith.co.uk off site5.

  20. ralphm


  21. ralphm

    I can send it to you directly

  22. Kev


  23. Kev

    Unfortunately, that still doesn't let me view the attachments.

  24. 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.

  25. Kev

    Fab, thanks.

  26. ralphm


  27. Kev


  28. Kev

    Sure that was the right mail?

  29. Kev

    I just received a forward of one of my mails :)

  30. ralphm

    oh hah

  31. ralphm


  32. Kev

    Much better, thanks :)

  33. ralphm


  34. Kev

    Ok, so, now that we've worked around site5's braindamage...yes, that's absolutely awesome.

  35. ralphm


  36. Kev

    Now we have to find cool stuff to fill that with.

  37. ralphm


  38. admin

    hi guys

  39. admin

    sorry, was out

  40. admin

    what's up?

  41. Kev

    Seems we've got our realtime lounge :)

  42. admin

    ooh, awesome

  43. ralphm

    admin: check your e-mail

  44. Kev

    Unless your provider's hopeless. *grumble*

  45. ralphm

    (in the summit list)

  46. admin

    ooh, awesome!

  47. ralphm

    So I guess we need to get some beanbags

  48. admin


  49. admin

    Ikea has them for €29

  50. admin

    no idea where we can rent some

  51. ralphm

    and some kind of screens we could show some kind back channel, maybe not unlike the stuff I made at Mediamatic

  52. ralphm

    I'm trying to get that code released

  53. Kev

    Dave has a projector that I imagine he'll want to be taking.

  54. Kev

    I don't know if we could use it for that.

  55. ralphm

    loungerent maybe

  56. ralphm

    admin: but it might actually be cheaper to buy them

  57. Kev

    How many do we want? This doesn't sound like a lot of money.

  58. 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.

  59. Kev


  60. Kev

    Postfix :)

  61. kevin

    Kev: site5 is a good..Whats the problem with it?

  62. Kev

    I've had a few problems over the years. Them breaking sites and things.

  63. Kev

    The current issue is that their mail system is really quite daft and will reject any forwarded emails.

  64. kevin


  65. kevin

    Kev: don't Google Apps - Gmal solve your problem?

  66. kevin


  67. Kev

    I don't wish to use Google Apps.

  68. Kev

    My question was, regardless, rhetorical.

  69. 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

  70. kevin

    Kev: you can setup an e-mail collector on your Gmail account instead of forwarding with site5

  71. Kev

    Sure, but a) That means giving passwords to gmail and b) I don't see that it achieves anything.

  72. 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

  73. Kev

    This is somewhat of a lesser issue to it not solving the problem :)

  74. kevin

    brb..Good night all
