Oron,

I remember you had a B/W image here. I remember its possible to define it in

No worries, I relinquish any and all claims I might have had for this
thread.

So, it occurs to me that Haifux hasn't met in ages. Would there by
interest in a talk about a new profit-maximizing operating system I
built called nom?

Here's the abstract:

  In the near future, cloud providers will sell their users virtual
  machines with CPU, memory, network, and storage resources whose
  prices constantly change according to market-driven supply and
  demand conditions. Running traditional operating systems in these
  virtual machines is a poor fit: traditional operating systems are
  not aware of changing resource prices and their sole aim is to
  maximize performance with no consideration of costs. Consequently,
  they yield low profits.

  We present nom,  a profit-maximizing operating system designed for
  cloud computing platforms with dynamic resource prices. Applications
  running on nom aim to maximize profits by optimizing for both
  performance and resource costs. The nom kernel provides them with
  direct access to the underlying hardware and full control over their
  private software stacks. Since nom applications know there is no
  single “best” software stack, they adapt their stacks’ behavior on
  the fly according to the current price of available resources and
  their private valuations of them.  We show that in addition to
  achieving up to 3.9x better throughput and up to 9.1x better
  latency, nom applications yield up to 11.1x higher profits when
  compared with the same applications running on Linux and OSv.

ObLinux: yes, there is a Linux angle.

Cheers,
Muli

Diego, if you refer to the "sender-picture", than Kmail simply match the sender 
with your addressbook.
That's why you see one picture, I may see another and Muli doesn't know what 
you are talking about ;-)

Nope, that's related to DKIM signature used to help some spam-filters.

Sending HTML mail to this list was an accident, but you found something 
interesting.

Here are the details:
 * Sometime I communicate with corporate users and in the beginning I used
   the same text/plain format as always.

 * However, unlike modern mail clients, their mail clients display quoted
   and unquoted text exactly the same (yes, Outlook. I'm looking at you).

 * The result is that it's very hard for them to read a mix of
   quoted/unquoted text. Which explains why top-posting is so common
   among users of that legacy mail client :-(

 * As a workaround, I started sending them HTML mail and apply a different
   visual style to the quoted text before mixing my reply text.
   The style I used was: green text (as in kmail), small font and ITALICS.
   This way they get a reasonable rendering of the intermixed text.

 * As Baruch just observed, in the text/plain version, kmail convert the italics
   to: /text-text-text/

Conclusions:
 * Re-check non-HTML mail before sending (IIRC, kmail used to have non-HTML/HTML
   settings per-corespondent or per-folder -- but maybe I'm wrong).

 * When replying to corporate users, don't mark the quoted text with italics,
   only with color+size, so the visual rendering of text/plain would be more
   consistent with text/html.

Thanks for the heads-up,
