"... stopping a disease in its tracks is bad business. In one famous instance, the biotech company Gilead saw its profits fall in 2015–16 as a result of its new hepatitis C drug — because it ended up fully curing most patients. The same perverse incentive structure has sabotaged efforts to create preemptive vaccines, despite urgent calls from public health experts for the last twenty years."

managed to setup #mailMan 2.1 on a YUNoHost instance and migrate lists from an old server. phew!
I did write some issues in some github repos, somewhere sometime.
linux: i want smart network mounts
on my laptop I (net)mount (sshfs) a folder on a workstation on my local lan at work.
I open file manager, browse to mounted folder, open an ODT file and start editing.
i suspend the laptop midwork by closing the lid, take it with me home, where I open it and want to continue working.
workstation is accessible from home with ssh and portforwarding
with #autofs this does not work well. libreoffice freezes forever and filemanager freezes until it gets network.
i want this self-healing non-freezing mechanism to the same mountpoint where autofs would intelligently try multiple mounts and in the meantime provide some soft notif to processes that want to access the folder on inaccessible mount...
this wouldn't be needed (autofs/automount would work) if the world would be using IPv6, I guess.
I guess I'm looking for a tool that is a combination of
- autofs (automatic on-demand re-mounting)
- syncthing/wormhole (automatic discovery of the mount wherever you are, and persinstence/remounts across laptop suspends)
#fedihive help please,
many moons ago i came across a modern tool that was perfect as a replacement for sshfs - namely to mount a remote folder as a drive but that it would persist across laptop's power suspends and migrations to different (wifi) networks - local/public...
i lost the link and the name. it's almost like a syncthing but for mounting folders instead for syncing them.
anyone has ideas what this project would be?
