Today I’ve learned...

My colleagues from the linux.org.ru board have found out one small flaw, so everyone including me stared to dance around PGP/GPG. So far I have found that among my systems:

  • Linux works as it should: two mouse clicks and you are ready. Covers 100% of my work mail, 75% of my personal mail.
  • Mac OS Sierra is not ready: GPG Suite has no support for the mail.app yet, just a workaround (yet). Hopefully we will see the solution in days.
  • iOS has only S/MIME out of the box, but GPG/PGP solution is ugly (due to restrictions).

And I don’t like install software that does not come with the operating system, for a reason :-)

Interesing “feature” of the Mediawiki

Just have a bit digged in the Mediawiki, that is quite popular Wiki engine :-) Found out that the  articles are located in the “prefix_text” table, with all the changes, obviously. So changes are being stored as a new copy of the article: if you have 100kb article and you need to save a change in 1 symbol, there would be 100kb growth (plus additional data) of the table. No wonder that the Wikipedia need new servers all the time! Cannot imagine size of their DBs.
