DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM)
DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) lets an organization take responsibility for a message that is in transit.  The organization is a handler of the message, either as its originator or as an intermediary. Their reputation is the basis for evaluating whether to trust the message for further handling, such as delivery. Technically DKIM provides a method for validating a domain name identity that is associated with a message through cryptographic authentication.

Certificates for localhost - Let's Encrypt - Free SSL/TLS Certificates
Sometimes people want to get a certificate for the hostname “localhost”, either for use in local development, or for distribution with a native application that needs to communicate with a web application. Let’s Encrypt can’t provide certificates for “localhost” because nobody uniquely owns it, and it’s not rooted in a top level domain like “.com” or “.net”. It’s possible to set up your own domain name that happens to resolve to 127.0.0.1, and get a certificate for it using the DNS challenge. However, this is generally a bad idea and there are better options.

Why you should learn just a little Awk
To this day, 90% of the programmers I talk to have never used awk. Knowing 10% of awk's already small syntax, which you can pick up in just a few minutes, will dramatically increase your ability to quickly manipulate data in text files. Below I'll teach you the most useful stuff - not the "fundamentals", but the 5 minutes worth of practical stuff that will get you most of what I think is interesting in this little language.

This is a great 20A continuous battery that exceeds its 2500mAh rated capacity, meeting its nominal capacity of 2600mAh. They were purchased from www.illumn.com and are are identical in appearance and performance to genuine VTC5's. The VTC5 hits as hard as the Samsung 25R5 and runs a bit cooler. Due to its higher capacity the VTC5 runs a bit longer than the 25R before needing recharging.

Richard Ginori 1735
Fondata nel 1735 e forte di una tradizione di 280 anni di storia, Richard Ginori è espressione d'eccellenza in Italia e nel mondo nell'alta manifattura artistica della porcellana. La produzione avviene nello stabilimento di Sesto Fiorentino, attivo dal 1958 e tra i più prestigiosi opifici esistenti, che si ispira alla laboriosità delle botteghe di pittura rinascimentali.

Word Processors: Stupid and Inefficient
The word processor is a stupid and grossly inefficient tool for preparing text for communication with others. That is the claim I shall defend below. It will probably strike you as bizarre at first sight. If I am against word processors, what do I propose: that we write in longhand, or use a mechanical typewriter? No. While there are things to be said in favor of these modes of text preparation I take it for granted that most readers of this essay will do most of their writing using a computer, as I do. My claim is that there are much better ways of preparing text, using a computer, than the word processor.

format=flowed: the little standard that couldnʼt quite make it
The standard itself is sort of neat, in that it applies a logical quoting construct in a backwards compatible manner to text emails. A receiver without format=flowed support sees a normal email and can reply as normal, though they may end up with embarrassing line wrap, but a format=flowed aware receiver will correctly re-wrap the further quoted sections when you reply, to ensure the lines are shorter than 78 characters but without the messy wrapping.

A: The lost context.
Q: What makes top-posted replies harder to read than bottom-posted?

A: Yes.

‘The tyranny of design’
In other words, the “tyranny” of systems that are beautiful, that work, and that people want. The only people who object to such things are on the losing side, not coincidentally because their systems are ugly, dysfunctional, and shunned.
At some point, open-source advocates become indistinguishable from Objectivists and libertarians in their insistence that their hypotheses are better than reality. Even after Steve Jobs’s death, opentards insist their way is better despite the actual facts.

You have no idea. What you’re using is appalling. Your habits are terrible. One of those three facts applies to Eudora users now too, since we’re stuck using the same software you are. After 23 years online, it hurts. You guys don’t feel a thing.

Biculturalism
By now, Windows and Unix are functionally more similar than different. They both support the same major programming metaphors, from command lines to GUIs to web servers; they are organized around virtually the same panoply of system resources, from nearly identical file systems to memory to sockets and processes and threads. There’s not much about the core set of services provided by each operating system to limit the kinds of applications you can create.
