Re: "who uses as a local email client in 2023. Doesn't everybody use webmail these days?"
It's even better on a mobile device: who uses webmail, there's an app for email. One app for each provider.
Or one could just use an email app.

Whilst I am heartily tired of all the apps nowadays that one is encouraged to use instead of a perfectly functional web page, I feel that webmail is the opposite: why use webmail instead of a proper email client which can connect to various email accounts?
In the scenario where one has more than one email address, with multiple accounts from individual providers, I cannot see how using webmail could be anything other than a nightmare.
How is nouveau in this release?
My pc (approx 2 years old, i3 cpu without onboard graphics plus low-end nvidia gpu) won't boot from Fedora 35 or 36 usb media. When I last needed to reinstall back in June after disk failure I had to boot / install Fedora 34 and upgrade.
After installation / updates nouveau "works", but is flaky enough so I end up using the proprietary drivers instead.
When I was a young 'un, we had to install from floppies (5.25", not any of the new fangled 3.5") ....
no, wait, I mean mag tape, or was it punched cards?
Stone tablets, hewn from the mountain, that's it, I remember now.
Is that enough? Six domains?
I tend to go with the pi-hole type approach - i.e. a far larger number of blocked domains, updated automatically, for various devices.
Obviously still need an adblocker in firefox. Doesn't work against lots of mobile ads: avoid apps where possible, and use the browser instead; many apps aren't really necessary.
... and repeated "Critical security alert for ... Sign-in attempt was blocked" emails when I use an android phone running k9 mail or fair email to access a gmail account.
Since I popped a new sim into a phone I get this every time the phone leaves a known wifi network and is on the cellular network / other wifi.
"I'll not bore you with the saga of getting my FTTN to be actually usable"
Our FTTN NBN is still usable for the time being; when it was rolled out we almost managed a 50/20 connection; around 2-3 years later we can't quite manage 25/5. Maybe we can soon look forward to 12/1 or whatever comes next.
"Why should a platform like Youtube not have the right to remove any content posted by users that it wants to remove?"
... exactly. Treat YouTube like any other means for generating publicity for your content, don't rely on it.
Easier done from the beginning: host your content somewhere you control, link to from YouTube (probably entails uploading to them too).
App should validate input
a) for valid characters - perhaps numeric / alphabetic only allowed in certain positions
b) against vehicle registration database
c) allow input which fails validation only after a warning, so your foreign registered vehicle which may be hard to validate can still buy a ticket.
