I think ProtonMail is worth a look

Ah, I don't think they allow mass emailing, to be honest, and we need that.
Like it seems like a simple email service that a single user would use.

It's never too late... :) Welcome to the camp!

Well it shouldn't recheck the torrent at all, that's just not normal. Does it happen to other torrents too?

It simply means the torrent is waiting to be queued.
You can change your settings in Settings -> Bittorrent.

Just increase the Maximum Download, Upload, or Active Torrents respectively.
I use a weird 5 / 999 / 999 value. :D

well ...

- I have qBittorrent in a virtual machine
- I have the source + dependencies
- Once I have done my changes on Transifex, I grab the file and replace it in source
- Re-compile the version with my changes.

It's a bit time consuming but not so bad...

Well, you can just disable "Check for updates" in advanced settings. ?

I mean, it's functional and easy to use, but is there any way to make  it look less like it came out for Windows XP?
No offence meant.

Sadly Qt Widgets are not so simple task on Windows.
On Linux they take up your system wide Qt looks - meaning qBittorrent can look quite fancy. But on Windows... it's not a simple task to style it up.

The mockup is nice and I guess you can add an .exe list of things you want these rules for but .... yea, it's another thing that would have to constantly run as a loop..

Well, you gotta check what apt-pinning plans to install when you install/upgrade qBittorrent from testing/sid/experimental.
Please, post the proposed action of apt/aptitude.

But wait, on Debian you can just use apt-pinning.

- you add both sid/testing and normal repos to apt.conf
- you use 'apt-get install qbittorrent -t sid' command to grab qBittorrent from sid
- it should just work

If it pulls too much dependencies or whatever, be careful, do not proceed. I didn't have trouble with it though.
Option B is simply to pull the Ubuntu .dsc files, and use pbuilder to build your personal own for Debian. (I don't even think you would need to modify much in the files to get it compile+run.)

Did you ask for an active port with NordVPN? I only used PIA, its an option in their client. On Windows, it's one box.
On Linux / OpenVPN, it's a bit more cumbersome.

(This is PIA, not Nord!)

Cafe lounge / [FIXED] PSA: Email woes

UPDATE: Email should be fixed.


Heads up! We have some email server trouble. Or... email service.
Whew, how do I post this without going into a rage-fueled rant?

Basically, we used SendGrid for a good while. They were a good service, we were happy, our emails went out. Win-win!
Until they decided to discontinue their pay-as-you-go service. So we had to look somewhere else.
Now, there were a few options.

- Shared hosting's email.

The forum runs from here, but you know, spammers register, people with wrong address register, we send out emails that bounce. It's not pretty sometimes. I do correct it from the logs, but I didn't want the shared hosting to breathe down my neck.
- Run my/our own server.
Eh, we do have the option to do this, but I opted not to since you have to monitor email logs, blacklists. Make sure not to end up with too many bounces, if you do you have to cull them. It's just.. sometimes troublesome. I mean it's easy if you operate a webshop, or a gaming community, whatever. But here, we get many spam accounts with addresses that just vanish once they spam. So that requires active monitoring.
- A different service.
This is what we went with. I went with Mailgun, since everyone recommended them. I did too, until now. I always had my personal data with them, I never had payment problems, I am not a criminal. Yet.

So what happened?
Just from one day to another, we got "suspended", and they asked me to verify the account.
Well, not verify, but these were the questions:
What types of emails will you be sending?
It's not like I haven't sent out thousands already...
Where do you source your database of email addresses?
Again, we have a forum in the website's name. But hey, it's okay.
Are all of your email addresses double-opt in?
0 spam reports in years. Uh, I guess.
What is your expected monthly volume of messages?
Again, it's not like we haven't been sending for years.

I did reply to these questions because I thought it's an automated system.
Well, nothing. I just got a reply, that they require even more, and more, and more data, verification, etc.

Very tl;dr:
- Mailgun is utter trash. DO NOT USE THEM. DO NOT RELY ON THEM. If you do, your site, community, webshop, whatever might just stop function from one day to another. Just imagine. And I am not kidding, this actually happened. It's ridiculous. It's not an issue they require verification at any day or time. But to randomly CLOSE an account AND start this bureaucratic process? No. That is NOT okay.
- We will be moving email service ASAP.
- I am sorry about all this. Wish I knew that Mailgun is trash.


Super weird, it works superb on my machine... (34 torrents loaded, but just yesterday had 200+ for test on 4.1.5, and upgraded to 4.1.6 without issue.)
