    From UPDATING:

    The sidebar patch has been merged. Please watch for airborne bovine. See the documentation for all the options, or simply enable it with ‘set sidebar_visible’.

    Wow, who would’ve thought the sidebar would finally make it into core mutt? First PowerShell open sourced and now this - what other surprises await us today? :)

    PS: why will cows be flying?

      Flying cows? Slow down there, we still have to get Tesla to produce solar powered roofs first. And that Jenkins UI really needs some improvements, too…

        1. 1

          Wow, thank you! This looks really great.

        Turns out that Debian has been shipping mutt with the sidebar patch for over eight years now. I did not know that!

        1. 3

          It’s quite commonly available - pkgsrc, Homebrew and the OpenBSD ports tree also have it, amongst others (NeoMutt too). It’s annoying having it out-of-tree though as it’s something that’s quite frequently broken by a new Mutt release.

        This week, I’ve decided to start learning about how FPGAs are implemented and then attempt to implement a small FPGA in Chisel (and then run the FPGA - on an FPGA!). Reading the literature could take quite a bit of time, though.

        Also, this is the last week in which this thread will be posted by bot. I haven’t been able to find anything else to do with the VPS that the bot was running on, so I’ve shut it down. In the future, I will post the threads manually.

        1. 2

          Happy to host the bot for you?

          1. 2

            Sure. I’ll add some documentation to the README on how to get it set up.

            1. 1

              OK, please contact me (details on profile, email/IRC/twitter, whatever you prefer) me once done - I’ll be happy to host it, effectively zero cost to me.

                  OK, understood, no more lobsterbot.

          2. 1

            In the last few years the capabilities of FPGA’s have exploded. Moore’s law are driving them harder than anything else on the planet.

            I’ve been tinkering with a Cyclone V set up and learning about them. Amazing potential.

            1. 3

              Looks like you’re new here (welcome!), so you probably haven’t seen the Cyclone V tutorials I posted in January.

              If you have any questions about the Cyclone V, feel free to ask me.

              1. 1

                No, I didn’t see that. Looks good. Bookmarked!

            1. 1

              That’s the logo, much the way Hacker News has Y for YCombinator. Lobsters has L.

              1. 3

                I think the OP means, why is it red sometimes and black others.
