On the Groovy mail server: I am still unable to send to ProtonMail. I might just shelve it for the time being. I would like to get back to it in the future, but I would like to spend more time on Clojure and the Lisp family.
I will get around to installing iRedMail soon. I can’t run an old version of Apache James forever. I think iRedMail uses Postfix under the hood, which is what ProtonMail uses. Perhaps I will get it all working them.

I mentioned that I do not like 4Clojure. I tried it a few times, and I keep finding myself in a position where I am randomly scanning the Clojure Cheat Sheet looking for a function that might help at that moment. He said a side project is a good way to learn a language. He asked me if there is a problem I would like to solve, and I thought of one.
I am starting on a project to publish tweets to a webpage. I used to use a plug-in called twitter-tools that once a week would take all my tweets and make a WordPress post. It is old, and does not work with more recent versions of WordPress. (I think the developer passed away from cancer a few years ago.) I looked recently and I could not find anything else that has the same functionality.
There are a lot of plugins and widgets that will put your twitter stream on the side. In fact, I think Twitter also has a script for that. The other major category is sending a tweet when you make a blog post.
Granted, you can log into twitter and download your archive, but it would be nice to have something automated.
We will see what I can get done in three weeks.
