Reading up on this, confirms my stance that the only proper email-address-validation is "send an email and if it arrives, the address is valid".
Really enjoying the new Ane Brun album After The Great Storm.
Recognisable, yet more expressive and more electronic than her earlier folky-work.
Centralisation Is a Danger to Democracy

@fribbledom The electricity is spent on trying to find a hash of a block+nonce that starts with a lot of zeroes.
It doesn't matter how many transactions are in the block, that's not what matters for the consumption. If there would be zero transactions over next months, the power consumption would stay roughly the same (it would get slightly lower in short term, but continue to raise in longer term).
Also note that there is a hard limit of ~7 transactions per second.
Often forgot in these comparisons, is that energy consumption is not a function of amount of transactions. But a function of "security". Often critics imply a correlation between amount transactions and energy used.
Other limits disregarded, BTC can scale up to 100x visa, or process 1 tx/day, with the same mining-energy used.
That is not to say that energy use is a concern. Just that it does not related to throughput (much).
@hansw not all information is inside information. On contrary: only a tiny fraction will be inside info.
@cosminh Certainly. Though not all languages may have this definition for Set, though. e.g. in Java it may be ordered.
Also, in ruby a Set can contain any type, which gets weird fast and is, IIRC not mathematical valid: Set[FALSE, (2 / 2.0), 'two'] == Set[FALSE, 1.0, 'two']

gPodder has this feature. On desktop gpodder is OK-ish, but looks and feels abandoned or not updated for a long time. On fdroid antennapod has gpodder integration that saves progress.
The default server, gpodder.net, however, has been flakey for me: often being down etc.
The idea and exectution (FLOSS) is good, but it feels too much like abandonware ATM.
