Today I shall mostly be trying to work out why, having moved my email to 365 business I can no longer receive any. Every single incoming email is bounced with a 550 error about needing SMTP authentication. Argh!

I'm on the Board of a co-operative aiming to develop a wind turbine in the Rhondda for the benefit of its members.

I can only assume that Perl has changed massively in the 7 years from when the script I need was written and today, the first time I've ever looked at let along tried to debug it. Putting ('s arrive all the print statements was pretty straightforward but where to even start with file io?

Been busy for the last coupled of days and @fedilab lost my place in the timeline and dumped me at the top.

So what did I miss?

Due to unprecedented demand I will be releasing my song "(No More) COVID-19" on Spotify in the coming week or so, here's a preview of the single cover.

(There is zero demand for this song, but it occurred to me that something I have never done is release a single, so I thought I should take care of that)

I fired up NoMachine on my Ubuntu box, realised it's VNC so controlling the current screen, if you're logged in locally, not opening a new terminal, but no matter. Easy to access from my win box.
Other way round, not so easy! Win box has no password & it can't open a session without one. Ok let's try authenticating with an SSH key pair.
Spend ages working out it how and where only to find that if you didn't use a passphrase to create the key it still won't work. Sigh!

Ok all you gurus out there. How do I fix this?

20.04 desktop with server installed. If I'm logged in on the desktop and then RDP in from a Win 10 box using remote desktop I get a black screen every time.

If I log out on the desktop and try it, it works perfectly.

I hate cops cause I'm queer and I know my history

Cops are responsible for upholding the Law. Historically, the Law where I live in France, the Law in the US, and in even more countries to this day has been written and geared against queer people like me. Being a cop meant and means having the duty to oppress, intimidate, kill me.

If you're queer you should know this. If you're queer you should show solidarity to black people and people of color who still face this issues to this day.

Hey @jaz did NY get the expected increase in cases after the protests? If so was it as high as expected. Is there any source for transmission/infection data by zip code?

OK, here's a question for knowledgeable Mastonerds:

I've been wondering about how I could set up my own personal social media "hub", which would essentall be somewhere to mirror + filter content from a collection of other social media sites that I'm on. Like a centralised timeline to combine multiple data streams from multiple accounts on multiple services, where I was in control. It wouldn't be public, it'd just be for me. Would a personal Masto instance be able to do that?

Redundancy negotiations start at Castell Howell due to covid-19's effect on the hospitality sector.
