ZashDid anyone ever successfully schedule a meeting across timezones during DST switchover?
Guuspeople in Iceland?
Guus(which is always at UTC, doesn't do DST afaik)
moparisthebesttimezones/DST etc is awful now, imagine when people live on mars and converting time for that :/
SamWhitedI need to move to Iceland.
moparisthebestthere's a private info 3-people-use-the-same-server leak :)
Ge0rGSamWhited: awesome idea to rename compliance suite to 2018! I'd comment on list but my infrastructure had a power failure and I can't yet send mail.
SamWhitedGe0rG: Thanks, I was planning on trying to push new ones through really quick but I just realized that we're so close anyways I might as well just rename the current ones since the recommendations aren't likely to change.
SamWhitedAlso, every time people ask me "why don't you run your own email?" I'm going to start quoting Ge0rG :)
Ge0rGSamWhited: hey, I have a fallback server, but it's too cumbersome to set it up on my mobile. And the power failure happened while I was on holiday 300km away. It also ruined most of the fridge content, so the MTA doesn't have priority
SamWhitedGe0rG: You are giving me further material to quote when people ask
Ge0rGSamWhited: okay, I shut up now.
SamWhitedheh, but yah, this is why I don't host my own email.
moparisthebestlike 'cloud' doesn't go down too?
Ge0rGI'm also a paranoid freak running it on real physical hardware in a place with limited access to third parties.
moparisthebestI recall not too long ago half the web being broken because an amazon engineer fat fingered a command, while my services worked fine :)
Ge0rGmoparisthebest: "cloud" is just other people's computers...
SamWhitedNo one ever said it never went down, but most cloud providers have SLAs that have to be met. I never had gmail go down in many years of using them, and so far haven't had FastMail go down (though I'm told they have slightly fewer 9's of uptime)

moparisthebestGe0rG has an SLA too, he gets it back up as soon as he wants to :)
Link MauveIn some ten years I’ve hosted my emails, I haven’t had a single time I couldn’t use it.
ZashEmail at least retries, so there's not that much of an hurry
Link MauveBut if I was on another network while that happened and I absolutely needed to send an email right now, I could just ssh into my secondary and send it from there.
Ge0rGI could send it as well, in theory. I just prefer to do more useful things right now than working around the failure.

Ge0rGSamWhited: typical cloud SLAs are worthless. They guarantee something like 99.5% availability per month, but the only thing you get if they stay down longer is a fraction of your service fee. That doesn't work for businesses and they don't go down for so long often anyway
SamWhitedThey still try to hit them, and I would be willing to bet money FastMail goes down less than what would happen if I hosted myself
Ge0rGSamWhited: probably so, because most redundancy and recovery mechanisms profit from scale
dwdI don't have the original messages for the Last Calls for 286, 313, 387, or 352 in my mailbox. I don't (knowingly) filter or delete mail. I'll investigate futher, but I wonder if that might explain the paucity of comments?
Link MauveMaybe the DKIM?
Link MauveI don’t validate that.
moparisthebesthmm yes jonasw 's DKIM failed
moparisthebestdkim=fail reason="key not found in DNS" (0-bit key) header.d=wielicki.name email@example.com header.b=auTm/D1f
SamWhitedNot that you mention it, I think I'm missing some of the originals too (assuming the extension emails were all sent in response to the originals, it only threaded properly on some of them)
SamWhitedand by "some of them" I mean "MAM"
moparisthebestincluding failing DKIM sigs will cause it to get spammed most places
dwdRight... So quite possibly people have spam-trapped them. Might be worth resending (from XSF Editor address, perhaps)?
Ge0rGAnd this is why I run my own email infrastructure
SamWhitedI never could figure out how to send from the xsf editor address; is that possible?
SamWhitedThis is why I don't run my own email infrastructure…
dwdSamWhited, I run my own email infrastructure, I just don't use it.

ZashThis is why I don't do DKIM
bjcgoogle doesn't flag your mail as spam?
bjcthey were the only reason i set it up, but when you house half of the world's email...
ZashI don't remember DKIM becoming mandatory
ZashSurely they'll flag my email as spam regardless
Ge0rGMe neither. I have SPF and TLS and Google is happy
moparisthebestoh also if you don't have DKIM it's more likely to be spam
moparisthebestDKIM is one of those de-facto mandatory things email has
moparisthebestI think it's mandatory to have matching RDNS, then DKIM+SPF+DMARC if you want good delivery
Link MauveNever set that up, never got my email flagged as spam AFAIK.
Link MauveNeither DMARC.
moparisthebestDMARC might not be, it's just a way to get feedback
ZashI don't have matching RDNS.
ZashOr, what does that even mean?
moparisthebestI don't expect you can send any mail at all without matching reverse DNS
moparisthebestmost mail servers reject your connection right away
ZashThere's RDNS, but it points to a series of CNAMEs that point back to my IP, and I'm having no problems.
moparisthebestnot really sure but I'd think as long as it points back to your IP it'd be fine
