To answer my own question: C-c C-s C-s (gnus-summary-sort-by-subject), hit # (gnus-summary-mark-as-processable) for each article and then O m (gnus-summary-save-article-mail), set directory and hit return several times. If I have to do this too often I'll need to script it.

If is meant to be so powerful where is the "save whole thread as a mbox" feature?

It's sad to read bellow the line and see so many people doubting actual healthcare professionals. So a reminder in order of lagging indicators: hospital admissions, ITU admissions, deaths, ONS registered deaths. If we wait for the later ones to peak then it's too late.

Things I want: a script to generate an efficient that matches all the files in a MAINTAINERS file that I have responsibility for. I wish to combine that with an query to check I haven't missed any patches.

I did not expect to be discussing the finer points of the consequences of the simulation hypothesis with my eldest this morning.

We all want to keep up to date with the latest information on Coronavirus. But with so much information out there it can be hard to know what to believe.

If in doubt, fact check the claims before you share them.

Together we can fight misinformation and stick to the facts.

Now, if this isn't the coolest thing you've seen today then you need to close the refrigerator. It's an animation of how bridges were built in Central Europe in the middle-ages.

I think I'm getting better at using artist-mode: two diagram heavy slides in less than an hour.

I'm not sure bisecting regressions on a Monday morning sets me up for what is to come but it's an easy win.

Nice to end the week on a quick hack that proved my suspicions about firmware and FDT shenanigans. Direct boot ftw.

Well I'm officially excited for season 5 of which like GoT is rapidly approaching the limit of the books. youtube.com/watch?v=caLji74IIp

@codingquark popularity boost from featuring on the Ubuntu UK podcast? (where I heard about duf on my walk this morning)

When I first heard that cases were missing I thought “can’t be an Excel problem, the rows run out at 1,048,576 which is bigger than even total cases”.

I never thought they’d have a case per COLUMN. Unbelievable. And yes: Excel columns end at 16,384 aka “XFD”. twitter.com/MaxCRoser/status/1
