Is it worth talking to the irssi guys about this? I always feel like it's just an "I'm dumb and can't use simple software" scenario, but it still feels wrong.
I have gotten the "SSL verification error" in #irssi on ALL OF MY MACHINES, and everyone on the internet has a thousand solutions to it that don't work.
I'm gonna go the "convenience-over-security" route and suggest something wild...
Remove 'ssl_verify=yes' from the default config.
If a user is bent up on security and needs to not only use SSL, but to also verify the key, they can, but considering how confusing it is for most users, it should not be a default.
Had a little panic attack when I closed my Xterm window and realized I just closed a 10-tab #Screen session.
I'm *reeeally* glad Screen keeps your tabs alive in the background so you can reconnect to it!
This is one of the most useful books I have ever read:
"Internet Core Protocols" by Eric. A. Hall.
I'm a UNIX user from Alberta, Canada, and I'm a failing computer scientist who works in LISP and Ada.
Half of what you say will go over my head but I'll act like I have a solution.
