After long consideration, I have now moved email for all but my main domain (but that’s coming too) to Purelymail. Email without bullshit.

Finally I have implemented a kind of trash in GoBlog. When I delete a post, it is first marked as deleted and can be restored within 7 days. Unfortunately the integration with ActivityPub is not that easy. ActivityPub allows to Undo a Delete activity, but Mastodon doesn’t support that, just like Mastodon doesn’t support Updates. 🙄

When posting, an audio file is generated automatically from the post content. And, I have to praise myself for this, I documented the feature as well! 😄
