  1. On the subject of Odysee/LBRY as a YouTube alternative - I have to respectfully disagree. There are very few apps that work well with Odysee and the content on it (at least in my experience) tends to lean toward extreme fringe political and tinfoil hat conspiracy theorists. In my short time exploring the platform it looked like there were basically three things on there - Linux videos, antivax videos, and alt right content. Not the kind of place I want to associate with, personally.

    I use it mainly to watch the shows I follow that are cross posted from YouTube without the adverts.

  3. The DLN forums are not just for exclusive Linux education and discussion. We can introduce other concepts and discuss those as well. Sometimes a person posts a Dilbert.

    If you just want exclusively a Linux education, you’re better off buying a Red Hat Certification path.

    No he didn’t. He was just saying it seems that LBRY seems to have more toxic content per capita than YouTube. If the site is a cesspool by default then it isn’t a viable alternative. If it isn’t a viable alternative, should it truly be on a megalist of alternatives or is it just taking up space? That’s part of the discussion.

  4. Good episode. I enjoyed it.

    Just one comment about self hosting mail, if you spend the time early on getting the setup right and all DNS records and your DMARCs and SPFs right, then they do not really require much maintenance at all and I only seem to get on a blacklist about once a year (mxtoolbox emails me when I am).

    My mailcow has been running continuously for about six years. I tried Mail-in-a-box for two years before that but it seemed to be more unstable regarding upgrades.

    Another thing with regard to SPAM, after this many years I get very little SPAM at all. RSPAMD is now well trained and works really well.

    Just thought I’d add a view from the other side :wink:
