gmane.linux.redhat.taroon has wrong list

Red Hat runs two mailing lists about its 'Taroon' distribution.  There
is taroon-beta-list <at> redhat.com for the beta versions, and
taroon-list <at> redhat.com for the release.  At the moment
gmane.linux.redhat.taroon is subscribed to taroon-beta-list.

This group could be renamed, so that taroon-list can take its place,
or you could do something wacky like subscribing the group to both
mailing lists but having new articles sent to taroon-list.

(Both mailing lists seem to be still active, just about, so switching
the subscription over probably wouldn't be right.)

I've now added the non-beta list as
gmane.linux.redhat.release.taroon.general, and scheduled the other
one for renaming to gmane.linux.redhat.release.taroon.beta.

More picons in weft

Well, after doing too much bubbly yesterday, today seemed like an
excellent day to delve into the mysteries of libgcrypt.  So I've now
make weft output the proper picons even for articles that have
encrypted addresses.  (They didn't have picons before, because all
the addresses were "... <at> public.gmane.org".)  weft now decrypts the
addresses and uses the decrypted address as a basis for looking for
picons...

Doesn't this mean you can use the picons to work out someone's real
address?

Things that do things attract weird reactions, in some way.

I think you present your replies to the weirdo in question in a very
calm way.

This story, by the way, reminds me of some time ago (say 6-8 years)
when the nerds at the university of Copenhagen hooked up the
soda-vending-machine to a box on the net.

I thought it was fun, so I whipped up a small script to display some
statistics and some graphs, and then proceeded to happily forgot all
about it.

Years later, I got an email from some strange dude that claimed that
he had patented the idea and that I should pay him. We went back and
forth for a while (I had a hard time believing that he invented making
statistics from a logfile from a box connected to a
soda-vending-machine; alas he didn't (the patent was rather obscure, I
think it related to selling internet-access through
soda-vending-machines or somesuch(!))).

Heh.  When they pull out their imaginary lawyers, your know they're
not very civilized people...

Yup.

Odd.  There was a .noindex file in the directory, which means
"pretend that this group doesn't exist".  It's been there since
March...  I'm guessing it was something I was testing.
