  • Reading Mailing Lists | Irreal
    s the TL DR although the SE article is pretty short First configure an nntp server in your init el like so setq gnus select method nntp ger gmane org Specify whatever nntp server you use but if like many your ISP no longer offers news you can use ger gmane org as I did above Then fire up Gnus with Meta x gnus and type B nntp news gmane org At this point you should have a list of all the mailing lists on Gmane If you re interested in say the Emacs Development list search for emacs devel and select it From there you can select individual threads to read What I like about this solution is that Gnus is built in so you don t need any setup other than specifying your nntp server Even better you don t have to master Gnus which is famously difficult Just follow the steps above and navigate as you would expect This entry was posted in General and tagged Emacs Bookmark the permalink A Tip for Mac Emacs Users Lisp Family Tree Adam Tiny niggle use news gmane org instead of ger gmane org the latter might change i would probably prefer to set gnus select method to nnill instead by the way Search for Recent Posts Elisp Summary Emacs for Prose FISA Abandons the Fourth Amendment Again Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Recent Comments Mike Zamansky on Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola Phil on How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Sebastian Christ on European Quotation Marks NoonianAtall on A Hyper Key on Any USB Keyboard Kris on An Example of Why Reproducible Research Matters Links Useful Emacs Commands Archives April 2016 March 2016 February 2016

  • Apple Responds | Irreal
    me speaking as a non lawyer to be devastating to the government s case To me again speaking as a layman Apple s most persuasive argument was that the All Writs Act which the government depends on to justify their action does not apply in this case because the Congress already considered the matter and refused to act and that complying does in fact represent a significant burden on Apple On the second point Apple pointed out that after the initial effort 2 once the precedent is set they will receive a flood of similar applications and that will require hiring additional full time staff to deal with them Furthermore they can t as the Government suggests simply destroy the break in software after the data is recovered because they may be called in some future trial to testify on their methods and procedures and to produce the software as evidence Apple already has significant legal and engineering staff dedicated to dealing with government requests for data and they understand the need to document each step they take and to establish a chain of custody for any hardware they work on They make a good case that complying with the order will result in a significant and ongoing burden There s plenty more and you really should read Apple s brief It s entertaining and instructive even if you aren t a lawyer If you don t have time for the brief itself The Intercept has an excellent summary of the important points it raises The Intercept describes the brief as a legal motion for the ages Footnotes 1 The press of course characterized this as Apple putting itself above the law but by refusing to roll over for the government and appealing Apple is in fact following the law

  • Moving Files Asynchronously in Dired | Irreal
