Srijan Choudhary

Hi, I'm Srijan Choudhary.

I'm a founding member and software engineering leader at GreyOrange, working on disrupting and redefining fulfillment.

I'm interested in software team leadership, functional programming, distributed systems, artificial intelligence, and software infrastructure.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, running, playing with technology, listening to music, creating music, and reading.

I write here when I have something to share - a personal project, some difficult problem I solved recently, or just an idea.

Take a look at the about page for more details, or follow me on the fediverse.

I reviewed this recently, and found that I needed at least one device where I was logged in to 1password to be able to restore everything. So, I've started keeping a paper key with the 1password secret key so that I can restore it as well.
One addition I wanted to do was to have some kind of manual encryption in the paper key so that I'm secure as well.

> Reply to Missing exit signals for linked processes

I can think of two reasons:

  1. You're not setting trap_exit and the process is exiting with normal reason. But it seems you're setting this.
  2. The exit message is somehow getting "eaten" by some other receive -> _ in your gen_server process.

Also, I don't think live reload should affect this. It should work across reloads.
Can you share the full code of your gen_server?

Found Samuel's nice post on capturing data for org via email.

This is very close to what I was looking for to be able to do GTD capture on-the-go either from phone apps like Braintoss or from any email app.

One addition I would like to make is handling attachments in the email by downloading them and attaching to the org entry.
This would be useful for voice notes from Braintoss - it does transcription of the audio and adds it to the email body, but sometimes it doesn't work so well and I have to fall back to listening to the audio. It will also be useful for forwarded emails containing attachments.
