What whitelist?

The only problem with self-hosting a SMTP-server is you often get blocked because your server's IP-address is being blacklisted because it's a residential customer's IP address. I have solved this configuring my mailserver to use my ISP's SMTP-server as a smarthost. Works fine.

Why have to get rid of this idea of "apps". It was nice, thanks Apple for making it popular, but now we had enough. Let's define some decent standard Javascript APIs and move to something that will work on all device/OS, like HTML. Apps will keep us in this Apple/Google duopoly forever.

Here, in the Netherlands, all people drink tap water, except when in restaurants. This of course has to do with the fact you can charge 2 euro for a glass of tap water while people will feel ripped off if you charge that for a glass of tap water. There are movements going on to persuade bars, restaurants to also serve tap water for environmental reasons. Bottled water is a huge waste of resources (in countries where the tap water is as good or better as bottled water).

By the way, my tap water, which is pumped out of the ground about 2 km from here, contains 0.12 mg/l fluoride (according to the water company).

Just read all the comments above yours and not many people seem to care about the point you just made. Hundreds of innocent people die due to American drones and now that they accidentally hit a white guy/non-Muslim the US president is making apologies. I find this very sad.

May Euell Gibbons eat your only copy of the manual!
