Damn that was a scary read.
Damn that was a scary read.
That is definitely true, especially for nature photography I'm practically always too far away. The downside with a bigger zoom is that it wouldn't fit into my photo gear bag and I'd need to carry it in a special bag and then I wouldn't take it with me on trips like this one anyway.
It would be nice to get a short review when you post pictures like that, even just a rating would be nice.
A reply to "Facebook Bans Renowned Colorist":
What I really don't understand is why people who have those problems don't post on their own website where nobody can tell them what they're allowed or not allowed to post.
Fstoppers doesn't just rely on YouTube and Facebook for their community, they have this website where they can do whatever they feel to do. Buying a domain and getting someone to install and update blog software on it isn't really that expensive nor hard and you're instantly free. Keep posting with a back link to your website and once you get banned you don't lose everything, just one stream of many. And if people were really interested in your work they will find it outside of Facebook.
That was exactly a month ago, how do you feel today?
I myself had that craze too for at least two weeks but then it was just too much and I had too little power to do anything anyway so it was only bringing me down until I stopped. Now I check the news perhaps once a day.
Obviously the quarantine in Sweden isn't as extreme as in other places but most people stay at home and to the social distancing in hopes that it won't be necessary for the government to do what all our neighbor countries do.
But to be honest, the disaster was only positive for me. Because of all my privilliges I was able to finally introduce changes which I wanted to do but never had the environment to do. I mention it in more detail in a comment to someone else: https://jeena.net/comments/1140
There is one thing which is really great with the whole covid-19 disaster, it totally breaks habit in a fundamental way. It took me about two weeks but something happened where I don't commute to work and suddenly don't come by the train station after work where I always bought junk food because I was so hungry after work.
Now that I'm working from home and the restaurants are kind of closed it's super easy to do two things:
Which then led to other things like it being easy to put all the ingredients into a calculating app and restricting the calories to basically half.
And this has been going on for two weeks now, I do the normal 3 times a week gym as before. There is so much less stress going on also, the whole world has slowed down so I'm now easily able to catch up with a lot of things. I'm almost panicking a bit when I think about the quarantine ending.
So yeah, a lot of selfish reasons but that's how it is when you're as privileged as I am, white male in a rich country working in IT from home.
I was looking into MyFittes Pal because I've ben using their app for free for quite some time and I'd like to support the development and get rid of the advertising. But first it's impossible how much their pro account is and then you find it somewhere in some forum online and it's $10/month. It's a nice app but $10 per month? I guess I'll keep just ignoring the ads or perhaps will look into hosting pihole.
Tobias, because I remember you enjoying the 3rd wave ska playlist I had on Spotify a couple of years ago, I thought you also might enjoy a current band which makes ska-punk style but now. Their sound is close to early "No Doubt" and they're called "Bite Me Bambi".
Here is an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ea99xTt9rzs
Someone on reddit wrote a recension of my latest artsy photo:
> Jeena presents us in a simple, pure expression, his personal vision and experience of a world and a life that is gradually and surely disappearing and whose remains seem to be hopelessly abandoned and lonely. With his/her humanistic approach to the subject, the extraordinary framing of the observed object, the author reveals and affirms to us the authenticity and beauty of as much the compositional whole as well as the emotionally separated details of this monument of todayz. Jeena's photo of the toilet paper is a poetically intoned reportage of his/her sensible devotee, from which he/she invites us to take a look at that toilet paper, not to abandon it and keep it from disappearing, which threatens us. 😁
I wish they would take the advice from this guy, I stopped watching them especially because of the insanely bad audio. I understand that it's bad the first or second day, but after that you have a budget for a USB microphone, come on.

Neat, the danish train broke down too so we were moved to a different train. This adds at least another hour. We'll see if I'll be able to catch the last train to Varberg. I literarily took the first train at 5am in the morning. According to time plans this could be a 12 hour journey, but in reality we'll see if I can get home today ^^.
@Matthias_Apsel das stimmt zwar auf dem Bild, aber heute habe ich mir dann doch meine eigene gekauft so als erinnerung ^^
@asciidisco There is Mastodon which is good enough and is decentralized and because of ActivityPub can be used with other software. And doesn't need to be hosted by every single person, just join one of the servers like with email. Are you guys on it?
I'm only traveling with my [messanger cammera bag](https://www.peakdesign.com/products/everyday-messenger/) which isn't that big to begin with and then it's also flexible, so I never had problems to fit it in between other peoples bags.
I second this so much!
@mnoorenberghe I see, where did you get this information from, do you have any link where this is described somewhere, it would be interesting to read.
Hehe it's interesting that this problem, almost 15 years after my earliest attempts to fix it, still isn't really solved: https://github.com/pavatar/pavatar/blob/master/Specification.md
I understand and respect the not posting other people, etc. but by leaving humans out of the picture it doesn't capture the moment as it is. Quite the contrary, it distorts the reality to a degree where it's unrecognizable.
It's really interesting because looking at your pictures I imagine that you either went up super early or you shot really late when people weren't there anymore. Because you don't only not post faces but neither do you post shadows, silhouettes, groups of people, far away or from behind.
Not trying to say it's wrong, it's absolutely your style, I can almost tell that it's one of your pictures without looking at the author line in my feed reader which is cool :)
It's a cool photo but in the context of a party a question came to my mind. Why are there never humans in your photos? What kind of party has zero humans?
I think I expressed myself incorrectly, of the biomass which consists only of insects, there is today only 30% left in comparison to 30 years ago.
For some reason Twitter broke the notifications for me by adding notifications when random people I follow like something (not mine) or tweet something (not related to me).
Fun is a reasonable reason to do stuff :D
Hm, I kind of wonder what this functionality is used for if most of the people read the text in their reader which I would guess would not show that?

As a sysadmin (or even easier DevOps guy) I can get you an offer from a dussin companies tomorrow if you want. Practically everyone is looking for someone who wants do do it.
The question is why do we need it if there is only one browser engine left (the Google one). Isn't whatever they implement automatically the standard? Why do we need to waste so much time and energy on some 3rd party coming up with standards?
You could do system administration ;)
For being sushi it looks really weird. This is how sushi normally looks like https://www.flickr.com/photos/jeena/14094688804/ ;)
It's especially during the startup phase.
I understand that, my answer was just to highlight that "Until then we can only keep on raising awareness" is not a true statement. Especially while seeing articles like "How open-source software took over the world" https://techcrunch.com/2019/01/12/how-open-source-software-took-over-the-world/ it is really weird to hear that the only thing we can do is to "keep on raising awareness" while effectively ignoring a mainstream movement.
There is an alternative though, using an operating system where the user is in control, not the manufacturer. That is why the Free Software movement and copyleft licenses like the GPL came into life. That is what people like Richard Stallman are fighting for. Sure you lose a bit of convenience, but that price we should be glad to pay.
Hehe, yeah basically. Thanks!
When I was 7 or 6 or something, I remember my granddad, who was in the Wehrmacht back then, very often explained to me how they fought during the war.
One of the things which stuck with me was how many more people the Russians had in comparison with the Germans. He once drew on paper to explain how they did something like cross fire where they would just fire with the machine guns so the lines of fire would cross and from down the hill Russians would run up the hill, die on the way up and new Russians would come up the hill without weapons and would take the weapons of the dead Russians and keep on running until they died, then another ones would take their weapons and so on.
I remember him saying it was 2000 Russian soldiers on one German soldier, but I guess that number got mangled through war propaganda, war reality, fear, and rumors on the front.
Wow, amazing capture!
Right now I'm hosting HomeAssistant on a NUC which takes 15 W. I'm guessing that if I want to serve my website, mastodon, pixelfed, peertube and perhaps other things in the future I'd want something which also runs with a mobile CPU like the NUC, just newer and faster and in a different case so I can build in hard drives, etc. inside of it. But yes, I'll need to calculate the costs for all of that.
It's 10 EUR / Month per 100 GB. I need something running at home anyway for HomeAssistant and backup/file server and my ~/Pictures alone already has 268G additionally ~/Video has also around 100G.
For the videos for example it would be cool with some software which would make it available to other people than me (mostly home videos) so I was thinking PeerTube might be able to do that in a nice way.
The only problem with this which I feel does have a real impact is when it comes to medicine, and especially anti-vaxers. Those people destroy lives, especially of children and that is not OK. I'm just happy that herd immunity exist which is the last hope those children have.
Good to see you back on the free Internet. Also really good that your feed URL didn't change so that I was able to read about it in my normal feed reader without needing to resubscribe or anything.
You should stop whining and: Just do it!
@ttepasse I'd rather have it not on other peoples computer. Was thinking about a industry grade NAS but those are really expensive too.
@mardy Thing is, once we start having exceptions then it will be difficult to manage ^^ But yeah, I get what you're saying.
Tobias, couldn't you come up with some talk to talk at http://foss-gbg.se/2019/01/speak-at-foss-north-2019/ in Gothenburg? They're looking for speakers.
> Travelling is still utterly exhausting
I found that this is mostly the case if you have to change a lot like you do when you travel by plane, especially getting to and from the airport is exhausting. When I travel the same route by train I feel that it takes a bit longer, but I arrive much less exhausted. I think it's because I don't need to wait anywhere, I can stand up and walk around, I can sit down and use the computer with Internet, there is way more space and when I change I can get something to eat and drink.
I'm traveling from Varberg in Sweden to Burgpreppach in Germany which are both fairly small so it takes a lot of time and effort to get to the airports. But both are really close to train stations.
Can't you get mentions too as emails and not only DMs?
David, your audio is always quite low, Chris' audio is worse quality but much louder so it's good, but yours is too low and I can't hear you when it's a bit louder like in my car or on the plane or train when a lot of people are loud.
so you finammy made it a write only medium. I uninstalled the app from my phone a coupple of month ago too, posting from my website also.
I love how you used media in this post, obvioussly especially the short audio from two places. Reading and the photos didn't really convey the atmosphere, but listening to the audio really did. Did you just record it on your phone?
@Xjs yes I had the same reasoning but back when Yahoo took it over, and back then I didn't feel that Yahoo really needs my money either.
I had a look now and I subscribe to 69 https://gpodder.net/user/jeena/subscriptions
I'm in no way a completionist when it comes to podcasts, I subsribe to what I might find interesting and hen when new episodes come out then I look at the combination of the topic and the podcast and decide if it sounds interesting or not on a per episode basis. Some podcast I do listen to every episode but most of them I don't.
Let someone record you doing it some day and upload it so we can have a good laugh :p
We mostly just write them in a Wiki as a table.
Although, as a listener I don't feel that there isa a "too long" mark for podcasts, I'm regularly listening to many podcasts that are at least 3 but up to 5 hours long, like https://aufwachen-podcast.de/
But I do understand that this is a lot of work ;)
Oh wow, that was fast, but yes, please put me on your list :D. Can't wait for the next episode, really looking forward to it, it obviously reminds me of https://monday.micro.blog/ but I really appreciate that your episodes aren't that micro, I always feel that I'd like to hear more about the people in the Micro Monday podcast too.
Hi, I would love to be in your new podcast "My Url Is". I've been part of the community for a couple of years and would like to tell my story.
How long are you staying?
The identity problem is actually what prevented me yet to try mastadon. If I want to try it then I need to install it myself so I can have it under my domain. But because I didn't want to give up my homepage for mastadon but didn't want a wonkey subdomain to be my identity, and it doesn't yet work in a subdirectories, I wasn't able to try it.
Who says that my bike got stolen? I'm saying it, I came back to the train station to where I parked my bike and it was not there anymore.
I don't have such an app, but you're right, that would come in really handy now. Next time I get a bike I'll put in a GPS module in it, then it just needs either an Internet connection or a GSM module to use SMS.
Can you elaborate on why you call it "lost his mind"?
I'd say it depends who you work with. At our company nobody even mentioned that there was some Apple event.
Did you forget to set a 'reply to' link or who do you adress with the forst sentence?
> "Calling out to folks asking for their blogs’ RSS feeds to follow, I swiftly realised that RSS was not a viable replacement for what I wanted to follow. 99% of the RSS feeds recommended to me were of white men."
That is the case in my feed reader too. I try to actively find others but it's not as easy as it would sound.
@Ron I think the 280 chars limit is silly, I don't have that limit on my website.
I'd say you can not post with Dialog (yet), only reply, as far as I understand.
@manton I guess that's one of the cases where microformats are much nicer than a feed.
Interesting, ok now I at least understand what's happening, because I do have a title for everything, only the title gets shown.
Let me first say:
> I am cluttering your social feed, mind, and eyes with serious talk instead of cat memes.
If I don't want to have this in my feed reader, then I will just unsubscribe. I know where to get cat memes instead, I decide what I read or not, so no worries.
Why I don't unsubscribe is that it's interesting reading, I may myself not understand the reasoning behind all this, and it seems you don't either, that's why you're in therapy. And I myself don't seem to have problems like those you describe, but I have friends who have symptomps like you describe who I like and whom I'd like to understand better.
But for various reasons we don't talk about this topic so that I can't get explanations like that from them, so reading your texts helps me to at least understand what they're feeling. I might not be able to help, but with some understanding it might help at least not stepping on their toes and be mindfull about how I approach them.
Man, those pictures are outstanding, great work!
Wow, a beautifull picture!
Ah interesting, I will try to do it like that, my only problem now is that now without woodwind I don't have a dedicated reader which can do that, but I'm thinking of implementing replies/likes/reposts to my own RSS reader FeedTheMonkey.
Interestingly if you look at the Twitter API and all the old clients, the name and URL of the app which which each Tweet was created were saved with every Tweet and many third party clients showed this information quite prominentally in their UI.
No, I mean you would still show a list of links but just the URL not a name or anything, then I could still see that someone commented on something you wrote whom I don't follow, I could click on the link to read it and I could respond to that comment on my website and ping them and you about my comment.
With your implementation I have no chanse to see that someone who I don't follow yet responded to something you wrote.
I wonder if a simple list of URLs, without any metadata wouldn't be sufficient, just to collect the backlinks to make it possible for people to read what others answered, basically like WordPress used to do with pingbacks way back then.
So will it put the post dates in the right way too so my followers don't get thousends of photos in their timelines when I import something?
Wow, I wasn't aware of the whole dog poop in a plastic bag problem. Back when we had dogs they were always outside and pooping where they wanted themselves.
My podtasts are all between 33 and 75MB, the median is 51MB.
I stayed untill thursday, but, funny story, I'm back in Berlin now for 3 days again.
I love the podcast, I didn't know that it was needed that badly but just listening to people talking about IndieWeb technology and questions I realize that it's so much easier for me to listen to long ass podcasts for hours than read pages and pages of text. And also creating it is much easier than writing a structured long blogpost, especially when it's not a monolog like most of the blog posts are but a dialog between two or more people who are knowageble in the topic.
I also have found some bugs with it:
I do think that the ESC is a great thing which brings the people of Europe closer together because they travel, they meet other nations, they make friends, etc. Which is what Europe really needs. We already have a EU of goods and of money, we just need the EU of people too.
Interesting, that looks like from a helicopter.
It'll be this sunday.
That is an awesome picture!
But isn't blog comment spam a real thing?
@anomalily I once wanted to impress a girl who started going out with me so we went out a lot to bars, cafés, the cinema, clubs, etc. And it worked, we moved in together. But during that time we also burned through all my savings. So about half a year later we found ouselves so poor that we had to get free food from the church for several weeks before we got back up finincially.
But what do you do if some people start using USB Type-C?
Thanks for the first link, I thought they stopped selling them.
Have you heared of treadmills yet?
@sikkdays No absolutelly not, quite the opposite it's an honor! Super interesting to read of the perception which others have about the online persona one is showing online.
For some reason it makes me to want to jump in and fix small imperfections like that I might have been born in Poland and that technically you're right to say that I'm a Polish man, but I don't feel like one because all my ancestors were German and I grew up in Germany. But because that would kind of be missing the point of your post I won't do that :D
Now you have a whole year to plan so you're able to go next year. And untill then you can relive this years FOSDEM by listening to my podcast with a lot of interviews: https://jeena.net/pods/14 ;)
Will it be a Tuxedo?
My story was that I didn't have computer stuff as work from the beginning, it was a hobby. But then about 11 years ago I remade it into my daily job. Since then I'm doing less and less programming stuff at home. Now I have photography as my new hobby and I feel like you, there is more for me out there! I would love to be out and shooting pictures all day, but I wouldn't like it as a job because this brings all the things I don't like with a job, customers, deadlines, responsibility. etc.
Oh cool, I didn't know that you're microbloging on your website!
Hi, could yoube more precise which links are dead or which git repos are staled? Then I could try to explain it a bit more. We do have one Wordpress plugin which tries to integrate most of the Indieweb functionality, did you find that?
Congrats! That sounds super aweseme!
When I'm in Japan that is what my photoblog is about :p
What can I say ...
You bought a new laptop?
About 3 years ago I implemented notes on my website: https://jeena.net/notes/1 and I wrote "in the long run will replace my twitter account" and it actually did already.
Really nice photo here, a lot of depth and layers, very nice.
Oh man thanks for this post I just listened to the first "Israel Story" and it was so moving. I love it when people share the podcasts they enjoy because it makes it easier to find the good ones.
Is that for real? It looks fake. How would that even work with a 2D kamera?
Since you're already listening to so many of them, check out my interview podcast https://jeena.net/pods
Ah that is good nrws, I've been trying to set up my instance but for some reason always failed.
I agree too, but I haven't seen anyone using anything AMP related yet. The funny thing is, I could without trouble find information about how to make my framework compatible with AMP, but it proves quite difficult to find out how to use it.
Yes, it was some time ago I visited Berlin and I can crash on my brothers couch. Already looking forward to it!
What is "My Financial Girlfriend"? Btw, I started listening to your "Oh My Dollar!" podcast and have to say it's pretty awesome, I thought it would be dry and boring, but the "glitter" as, you call it, makes it really enjoyable to listen to.
Oh, wow one really can see the change, even though I meant a full body before and after picture ;).
Hehe, every time I'm at the Munic airport I'm getting Weisswurst too.
Those are really good tips and most of it is applicable to all cameras.
I read a little bit about it but thought this was quite expensive, but it seems that for a monthly 60 minutes podcast both their options would be essentially free. I'll check it out more, thanks for the link!
I guess it's learned behaviour, once you shared and nothing happens anyway, but you still exposed your self, you learn that sharing has not always positive effects on your life.
Today I finally went: https://jeena.net/photos/301
I plan to go today, was half an hour late yesterday because I wanted a sundown photo, so they already closed.
I also listen to podcasts when I'm out shopping or even doing chores.
Or you could just start commuting to work ;)
I don't think it will help to see who said what because it also feels that 50% of the words are wrong so that you can't even get the gist of what really was said. Here an example from the top of the file:
Karolina: "I have mad 20-year 28 years old but that's when the 20 years old a happy person living in hitting an island with my brother and my two bunnies."
Which should have actually been: "I am 20 yea... 28 years old, but not 20 (haha), 28 years old happy person living in Hissingen island with my brother and my two bunnies."
What if I don't go to conferences? ;)
Actually no, not really, first it's outside of the town but also there I didn't smell anything bad in particular.
I checked Youtube who offer automatic speech to text and this is what you can get: https://jeena.net/t/captions.txt
I tried to transscribe one episode of my podcast which was 1,5 hours long. I'm commuting 2 * 1h per day and I was able to transstribe about 5 minutes of audio per hour, after a couple of weeks I had transcribed about 40 minutes. I used a special software to do that too which connected the text with timestamps to the audio. But I had to give up because I wasn't able to do anything else but transcribing, it was just too time consuming.
And the automatic transcribtion services are still quite bad. And paying someone to transcribe is quite a financial burden. I agree that it would be awesome but I don't quite agree that the technology is there (yet).
It kind of reminds me of the music Microsoft Songsmith creates: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3oGFogwcx-E
Oh, wow, that is not something I want.
I'm also looking into replacing my Airport Extreme which is soon 10 years old with something faster. I have 250/100 Mb/s internet but only if I connect my laptop by wire, which is more and more seldom this days.
I was kind of thinking that the homepage is a HTML version of it, but perhaps a stream-like version could also be something.
I'd love to see more meta data about youp pictures like with which camera you were shooting, with which lens, zoom, apperture, shutterspeed, ISO and stuff like this.
What did you make go with a newer version of your camera instead of going used but the next bigger one?
Wow, awesome photo, I see you incoperated my tipps about composition. Lovelly sky, people in the foreground for scale and grate waves.
You got a typo there, it should have been: "... there are just too few days in a weekend."
Yeah it's cropped from a bigger picture where the tree was supposed to be the forground, I even have pictures of it iluminated, but I endet not up stitching it together because the cropped still looked better. So yeah it was planned differently ;)
Yeah, that is the one I have, for the 13" laptop. It is a bit heavy, yeah but they made it really confortable to wear.
I actually do, I was at the same time in the market for a laptop bag and got me this really expensive but emensly well designed bag by Peak Design: https://www.peakdesign.com/product/bags/the-everyday-messenger
This way every time I take my laptop with me, I also have my camera with me.
Nice, that is what I also get :)
Cool, a VR pillow!
I guess the culture is quite different in this regard. Also you can get the information what your neighbour/colegue/boss earns and stuff like that. I have to admit that some of this was a cultural shock when I moved here, but somehow it works out much better than you'd expect.
Yes, and the only thing you can't do with the photo is using it for advertisement. Appearantly you even can take photos op people inside their houses as long as you aren't on their private land. And then you can sell them upload them etc. You aren't allowed to do it in toilets and changing rooms though.
Auphonic, which I use for my podcast post production, has it as a commercial product integrated already: https://auphonic.com/blog/2016/12/02/make-podcasts-searchable-speech-to-text/
Oh, wow, that is a really cool idea! I hope you will find the time to do that often. I abuse my blog for stuff like that but I like the seperate part of the website more.
How do you mean, what deos that mein to 'take a Pomodoro'?
Yes, some day in the future. I tried to transcribe it now for 4 months and it's such a tedious job, I got to 45 minutes of the 1.5 hours and once this is done the translation begins.
Oh, wow Christian, I just read through https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=747543 and it hinted that if you just install Evolution, gnome-contacts will make ass the addresses available offline.
For me it is good, if this continues I will be able to pay for my music on an actual medium instead just a virtual one :) + the awesome big artwork you get with it!
Haha may be, but it was just 14 EUR so I was ok taking the risk, especially because in theory you only need the app for the first setup, after that it should work offline as far as I understand. But it's difficult to understand how to get it working, the app can't find it and the littli instruction paper which came with it is in Chinese, so I'm still searching the internet on how to get it working.
But actually I have had often good luck with such chinese periferials, they do cost 1/10 of the price and I got everything working yet and everything offline unlike the stuff you can buy in europe.
I don't need it with ZigBee in particular, just so I can turn it on and off programatically from some device at home which sits behind a NAT and I can connect to that device for example via SSH. I want to be able to switch on the light remotelly for someone who arrives an my house when I'm not there.
Yes you're right and that is what I actually am trying to do. That is why I tried to buy one which works offline but it's practically impossible. The one I got was as close as it got. It only needs the app the first time you connect it to your network to set it up to run in developer mode, after that you can controll it via ZigBee http://www.yeelight.com/en_US/developer
After a evening trying to fix my computers here is the status in between:
A normal Arch update on my old laptop made it recognice wifi passwords again so that one is working fine now.
On my new laptop I found out that by installing windows I had to create a special partition for EFI into which I copied my kernel. After a Arch update which gave me a new kernel but saved it into the old /boot partition nothing worked. I copied the kernel manually into the EFI partition and everything works again. Now I am mounting the EFI partition as my /boot so next time the updater can hopefully update the files in the right place.
I hadn't have the time to check why windows doesn't see WiFI and ethernet, and I hadn't have the time to check what's wrong with my work laptop yet, but I have my big desktop at work and this is just a backup if I need to work somewhere else or want to workk from home, which rarelly happens.
Everything on this picture looks great but thi salad, I hate this blend kind of salad.
I guess the smallest bill it has is 200 EUR?
And for less than half the price!
@tobiastom ich sitze da gerade am Gate 65.
I'm still only getting "YouTube Red isn’t available in Sweden"
I'd say "impressive" is the wrong word, I'd use "expected" ;)
And you found out about it on Twitter?
The R16, what a beauty!
In the beginning I was posting to facebook myself, but since they change their API every couple of months I couldn't keep up and rely now an Bridgy. And I only POSSE to Facebook and Twitter (to Twitter I still POSSE myself). Getting the comments is much more difficult, for that I always relied on Bridgy.
Reading the post you link to, I'm somewheri in the middle, I understand their corcernes, at the same time without POSSE, most of the people who read my stuff now wouldn't. And looking at it from the third side, keeping POSSEing seems not to make more people reading it directly from my site, so nothing changes for the better, it's just as if my site didn't exist and I'd use just Facebook and Twitter.
I guess normal POSSEing will still be possible for a long time with Known, but getting back all comments, etc. might get complicated in the long run when Bridgy can't keep up with all the changes for example Facebook does.
What plant is that in the picture?
On the picture you can't see my speach, but it was a pledoye for a life in science and the end was me envisioning her as one of the scientists at the CERN institute. ^^
Not me at least because as I said most of my photos are not published, they are just on my computer.
What will you be doing about getting the sound dry?
I agree, I am on a older Android phone now and it often reloads my page when I try to choose a photo from my gallery and then all my text is gone, and often the picture does't get chosen anyway, it's weird. I almost want a dedicated app for that.
How were you able to get to that spot to take this picture without getting shot?
I would pay for a (open source) software like this which I can run on my computer, most of my photos never get published but I still want auto tags on them.
Reenable email notifications for Facebook and just check that email two times a deay.
Oh man, check out this https://github.com/architv/soccer-cli we could have saved us a lot of work usind that back then ;)
But we often do it because it is fun!
For me the main reason is that it's Free Software, and to be honest, for most of the daily tasks I've been using the same free software on the mac already so there was no big clash when I moved to linux.
But I have one area where I wish I had a Mac (or Windows computer) and it's audio. Ardour is really great but all the work I had to get jack and pulse audio to kind of work together, jesus, I even bought special hardware so I wouldn't have to deal with this shit while recording my podcast.
I second your statement, the fun of figuring out how to do something with linux which I was able to do easaly on the Mac is quite far down on the list of the reasons why I use linux on my desktop.
So what is the end goal here?
Is it possible to filter out a specific language in the index pages? If I don't understand english/german then the lang attribute doesn't really help me to find the articles I do understand.
Is that the sea we can see there? And palms? Cool shit.
I have to say, short videos like this are so much better for showing the sea which moves than normal wide angle pictures.
I don't particularly care about Open Source, but I do care about Free (as in Libre) software. I use it so I as a user can decide what it does, not a company or the developer. The four freedoms: to use, study, share and improve the software are the ones I am interested in when I use software.
I didn't know you had Waldorf schools in the US, interesting.
But most people don't have the urge to use something which will hold their data for the next 50 years, the next 2 hours is more than enough for allmost all tweets.
They somehow look kinda creapy.
Yes, I did indeed, had to convince my boss to get them, because they're 150 EUR more expensive than the QC 25, and he payed for them because I was complaining about the noise at work in our big plan office. But in the end I got them :D.
So, how did it feel?
We celebrated Midsummer!
It's even better if you use it in a VM with 2D acceleration, then this layer is above everything.
Could you comment about your reasoning behind the license change?
Tey are really beaufifull.

Post a screenshot, otherwise I need to manually import my feeds into that instance.
Yep this worked, I got a person tag mention. :)
I remember we had kind of the same problem in the SELFHTML community and we also decided for a clean static homepage with a description of the project and links to the wiki, blog, forum, etc. http://selfhtml.org/
Haha, damn, I had to find a screenshot online because I don't have any Mac anymore. But whatever, I hope people still get my point.
I only used it for a couple of hours yesterday and was mostly happy about the UI, but you're right, they have still a long way to go.
About iTunes, I only used that part of iTunes because I don't have a iOS device and I never buy anything on iTunes, so I haven't seen those problems you describe.
Is it in the basement or upstairs?
Hehe, I feel you, have very often the same problem ^^
This looks so english!
Hm no Microformat and Webmention?
It's fun to see that on yet another one of those services.
So I guess it finds the whole in-reply-to chain upwards, but not (yet) downwards?
We sure will do that!
If you like beer you should really visit the Cascades Brewery and taste orme of their more than awesome sour beers, they're exceptional, never had better sour beer than there. And try their beer-cheese soup too if you're at it :D
Oh interesting, Woodwind says you will be posting this "in 39 minutes" then I should go out and perhaps I'll see the ISS flyover too!
Wow, Scott Hanselman is at the IWC? I'm a big fan of his too! Especially of how diverse his podcast interview partners list is.
Ah nice, with the new logo!
Yeah, for me it is slowly becomming my main feed reader together with FeedTheMonkey and Facebook.
I want to know if it was worth it!
It's a feedreader which in addition to RSS/Atom also understands h-feeds marked up with microformats, which makes it possible to have a UI which is more like Twitter/Facebook, wich the author and a avatar, etc. and inline replies/likes/reposts via micropub.
Yes, although sadly just online, but I'd love to go in person some time in the future because Portland is quite cool and I really loved it there last year too https://jeena.net/indiewebcamp-2015
But not every HWC is on facebook either, perhaps we could work on that?
That's why people started developing http://thepiratebay.se/
Can you give us a reason why we should do that?
So what are you working with?
@dadgumjames just because it is like this righti now doesn't mean we should stop fighting for tem to learn to use better tools.
@e8johan that sounds really good, I hope mine will get that old too!
There is a book out there "PHP - the good parts", I find it to be quite accurate: https://jeena.net/php-the-good-parts
Does it really work against rain?
What is the thing in the center, a block of butter?
Chistian, for the next screencast we need this: http://www.webupd8.org/2016/05/tool-to-display-keystrokes-in.html
Haha, this was my first native indieweb RSVP to a HWC I'm hosting! ;) It's a pitty that it was a no, but perhaps next time :)
Running anything in full screen on OS X is a barbaric act and should never be done.
That would be super cool!
You have a kingdom?
@quellebouille haha that is really true :D
Hehe that sounds awesome. Sadly the best burger in Gothenburg is no more :(
Hm no it doesn't, are there canonical URLs for medium articles? I guess if it is a good article the canonical version will show up somewhere I can see it anyway.
First let me say that I use Twitter (and basically Facebook and Instagram) basically as a write only medium, therefor I can't really have conversations there anymore.
What do you mean by tagging?
Does it taste as delicious as it looks like?
It's a bit far but I will attend remote, sounds cool!
@m_ott Noo! You obviously should use your own website for that!
"... that means they can be streamed in countries where Amazon Video is available – the U.S., Germany, Austria, United Kingdom and Japan." that would be a nogo for me, then I wouldn't be able to see it.
"This is capped at $75,000 per year" wow, ok not many on youtube make that amount but there at least there is no cap, if you're good you're allowed to make more.
Honestly, I don't quite see the appeal, could you elaborate?
But why is it so dry around them??
@atpfm I would rather get asked for money every time I listen to the podcast than listen to advertisements every time I listen to it.
This is what most german podcasts do and it seems to work for them, moneywise not as well as ads but still prettty well.
Asking for money, or for them to buy a book or merhandise you did, is in my opinion much more respectfull to the audience than forcing them to listen to random ads therefor I'm sceptic about you saying that you don't want to sell some older merch again out of respect for the audience while you're sending at least three ads per episode and don't offer a payed add free version.
Wow this is really artsy, now I want to have it for my posts or something ^^
Very stylish, I'm getting one!
Hehe damn it looks like CGI!
Messages, Viber, Facebook Messanger, Twitter, Hangouts, Yahoo Messanger, ... there a lot of them that are really popular.
Yeah same here, in my opinion it is because it doesn't have build in history which is synchronized between all your devices.
OS/2 Warp FTW!
Mine are just checkboxes with a label instead
Cool hoodie Christian!
Very nice, weiter so!
Really awesome picture!
Hehe she was on her bike already and had to come back for the photo ^^
@aaronpk You know I can receive person tagged mentions to my homepage? ^^
Yeah, we just had our first sessions, I attended the SWAT0 one.
Hell yeah! Let's drink some frankonian beer and get us some Nürnberger Bratwurst!
What is that?
Ok I even made an animation with music out of it! https://jeena.net/media/christian-rollin.webm
This post is so freakin awesome I don't know what to write :D oh yeah, next time aggregate the GPS coordinates as you ride this wild thing and put them on the map too :D
wow, that looks more than awesome.
And I thought that wasn't possible because it was plastic.
What is a solar revolution?
Yeah and especially now since Thunderbird doesn't get any love anymore and every new client does some server side stuff where you have to send all your emails to a third party, there seems not to be any hope that this will change any time soon either :(
Now that you're finally an adult, there is no way out of it.
But it's so easy to peal garlic if you do it right! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyHnpKmp-Ug
Hilft das etwas?
You could use Plex and let others log into your instance, the only not so good thing is that Plex is not free software, otherwise I think the UI is good and it is distributed, etc.
Welcome to the wonderfull world of big corporations!
Could be because they can see with their eyes if you're black?
I put it back in there. Thanks for the link!
Do you have a source for that?
In the IndieWebCamp community we try to do this also but even without RSS feeds if you don't want one. See my notes which have an h-feed site which is just the HTML marked up with Microformats so I don't need a special xml-feed. (I do have one for legacy reasons) And we use Webmentions (it's like Pingback) to ping others about us mentioning them. I also show their mentions under my own posts.
And so the world is comming to and end.
How is the build in sound?
You're so cryptic! I had to check the #selfhtml irc chatlog to understand what you're talking about! And it seems that is one of the badges one can earn for writing a lot in this forum: https://forum.selfhtml.org/
Na, it's not homemade but sold sealed, so you don't have to handle any water or anything.
I don't think there is reason to believe that, we're only working more and more. See also: http://strikemag.org/bullshit-jobs/
You mean Kavinsky's "Outrun" album? If so then I agree, I got that on vinyl back than https://www.facebook.com/jeenaparadies/posts/10151920233832678
Wow this looks like an atomic bomb is exploding in the background.
Scared and nervous, good combo!
Just, ... don't use Windows.
Disapointed because you don't agree with what it says or disapointed because it goes not faar enough in your opinion?
Hm, for my private git repos I don't use a web gui, I just have a bare git repo somewhere on my server.
Hehe, sounds fun
So what did you play?
He's right, you know?
Although it is not really true, because a lot of our content of our [devices] ends up on their backends anyway, like pictures, backups, notes, documents, videos, etc. Otherwise we would not be able to share them that easy with other people.
And I love that you're doing that in a way that helps others too!
93 tacos in one month?
Wait, I know this game, I just played it less than one month ago!
The only thing I find a bit off putting is the extreme redness of the "i"
Welcome to my everyday life. I actually started to publicly shame them after I waited for more than two months for them to do what I need them to do.
Congrats for choosing the AGPL v3 license, I licensed my first software to AGPL v3 just some weeks ago: https://github.com/jeena/sonicmonkey/commit/0aa30a2aec04fa426b8f31dba30ccbc759712ea7
I'm terribly sorry, it is a bug in my code which makes the avatars smaller, I will try to fix it when I have the time.
How dies that change my point?
Hehe, I totally forgot what happened last year but they reminded me.
That's what I wanted to hear, great! I'm sitting at the gate and waiting for the flight which will be in half an hour.
Interesting, that's the same one in which also I did my first 10 days.
If that would have been your home I'd declare you a old person, with style.
@codepo8 Have you tried Mattermost which is free (as in libre) and does basically the same as Slack but selfhosted?
Why aren't you instead using free (as in libre) software instead like Signal instead of Threema, especially when it comes to secure communication?
Cool picture! I tried fur over an hour to get one like that and failed, so I know how fast they are and how how difficult it is to take such a picture.
Oh wow perhaps I should plan for this, is there a concrete date already?
Very interesting article, but why whine about Facebook while posting the article on Medium?
I'm still posseing because that way I don't have to change anything, but I haven't started any of their apps for a long time now.
It's perfect to get small children to eat their vegetables!
So which temperature does a light rail have then?
Haha, I went the first week already and I must say, I loved it!
But you don't want to give us the URL?
No! The 2D version is really good!
Money! And actually I don't know, it wasn't me who bought the tickets ;-)
So Tantek is a rebel?
My note is about 27 KB while yours is about 42 KB ;-)
When writing English it would be cool if you link to the English versions of the websites.
Ah nice, that's awesome!
Did you have to wait for some new kind of lenses or why first now?
It seems the word "Christmas table" is tied to Scandinavia http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=christmastable
In my Firefox it says "Video Format not supported"
Ah hehe ok so not at work but with work kind of, now I get it :D
Ok, but with whom?
Yeah, I don't have a cat.
This is super fun, a couple of sounds and you can play it for a long time, haha :D
Is it the Christmas table at work?
Haha nice, that sound really easy :D
How do you distinguish between good and bad fashin advice?
I agree, especially the 'people over plumbing' which back then the Tent developers didn't get and I had to leave. This works so much better in the IndieWeb-community!
But sadly they didn't have a control group with people who never used Facebook nor one where they stopped using it a long time ago.
I was never under the expression that Mozilla was a company, are they?
It's a shame, I would donate monthly some money if I knew that they'll concentrate on freedom but yeah, they seem to fail a lot lately. I guess that is because it is really hard to make money with free software, but then they should push more for donations instead.
Yeah I guess, I'll try to add something. And I also need to shorten the RSS feed and add paging and stuff.
I thought your feed reader would do that for you? ;)
Because it is the best, easiest and most powerfull way to create Makefiles right now. It seems that really many big projects are moving towards using it.
It was about freakin' time.
@Tobias, Yeah kind of, I mean, we define what Circus Metal is so we can define anything! But it is one of the lighter songs we made and it can't be a bad thing to broaden the fan base as long as you don't sell out :-P
Hehe yeah, I totally agree!
Oh wow you started using a Known instance? Self hosted?
This is a really awesome picture!
Living the dream, I envy you!
I really can't trust a closed source solution. I've seen what Volkswagen did and I am convinced that every company does stuff like this when they can be sure that nobody can have a look. It is a nice gesture by Apple that they try to fight the political fight, but I think they will lose and they'll be forced to not tell anyone.
Yeah those are really nice, I had no idea that they sold USB sticks looking like steampunk, not bad.
I almost thought you were a zombie already because you haven't been posting notes since that day onward anymore!
No, I guess I should have added the link to the article I was reading http://techcrunch.com/2015/10/21/twitter-ceo-dorsey-apologizes-to-developers-says-he-wants-to-reset-relations/
Ok, one year later I finally ordered one!
I think if you want feedback as an author there are ways to encourage it. You see that often in YouTube videos for example, and back in the golden days of blogging one advice was often to ask your readers a specific question at the end of your article so they would feel like to answer.
It kind of sounds that you've been at the wrong university.
This really reminds me of an almost 10 years old article by Robert Nyman http://robertnyman.com/2006/04/25/an-important-lesson-learned-about-ajax-and-accessibility/
Yeah especially it is called "web"OS for a reason, when you put Qt in front of it what is the point??
I'm in Berlin on the Qt World Summit conference, we're one of the sponsors and I naged for half a year and was finally allowed to go :D
You should take up brewing again.
Are you talking about this? http://www.theonion.com/article/no-way-to-prevent-this-says-only-nation-where-this-36131
Jesus Christ, this was so bad, but I still watched the whole thing because I wanted to know how it ends, but it only ended badshit crazy without a storyline or anything.
It does a bit, but its still very weird because they don't have permission per default anyway.
Offsite backup, that's what I still haven't done but should have a long time ägo.
I had something simmilar, but instead of getting up early I slept until half past eight or something.
@miahfost no need to be scared, it's like Döner but not cooked.
I still use it as a write only medium.
Next step on my way to build the brewing automaton I started a couple of years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJwskOizOOk
Honestly, I've read the article now and I think it's just bullshit.
I'm so proud of you!!!
Oh, wow, 42% seems a lot, interesting.
Any tips on what to use instead?
Weren't you supposed to book a room for FOSDEM instead of FODEM? ;)
This will be awesome!
Is it one of your own projects?
Oh yeah! That's how we like it!
Wow nice weather!
@marioboikov up until 3 years ago I've been working as a iOS developer and been paid by companies to develop their apps which they gave away for free because they were part of a bigger service like booking a table at a restaurant, watching support videos of a financial group, etc. They made money with something completely different but needed software to support their company so they payed us to create this software.
I kind of think that it's the background music which makes it so creepy.
What is dribble, I don't seem to understand what it is supposed to do.
And what is it? Watching football in a pub or something?
@tobiastom wow, now it is really great!
So is it in any way different to the music they did before?
@tobiastom oh that is a pitty, on my bigger screen it looks really ugly :-(
@cjk101010 Oh awesome video! Haven't seen it yet, thanks for the link :D
What is this behind him/her, a crown?
So where do you store all the coins?
Sure, why not, shaving is troubling anyway so if you can get away not doing it I would chose that option every time :D
Yes! I hate retweets that's why I periodically run this script https://gist.github.com/jeena/18db8076b9ed928f1f04
I the light of this, I really want to have/work on a offline publisher for my phone, especially abroad.
Isn't that basically what jekyll is?
Lemmy, because God doesn't exist?
I'm definitely going, it'll be fun, the second time in Gothenburg :).
I know it but I don't quite like it, its too sweet!
@miahfost that is exactly what it was :D
But the question is, should it?
Nope, If I see duplicate content I just unfollow that person everywhere but one place.
I wasn't aware of the fact that you're in the IndieWeb community too, cool, hope to see you on IRC some time :D
Have you ever tried to do it via webrtc? https://rtccopy.com/
Yes, I would, I wen to the Universitz for 3 years just to be able to get a job like this.
Sadly the picture is gone.
I drove a BMW i3 once, it was so awesome, the acceleration and the torque right from the beginning. I very much would love to have a electric car, just to get that feeling every time I drive.
Is this from the biking podcast or something?
I guess there is no one only introvert / extrovert, people seem to always to be some shade of gray in between.
Don't you have a hand grinder as a backup which isn't that noisy?
So it is interesting to see what you're listening too, but the reader right now only shows a looking list of the things you've been listening to almost nothing else from the other users ;) perhaps it would be cool if you could offer a feed for notes and photos etc. But without everything you listen too? :)
You don't really need to set it up yourself, just log in with your website on the public instance Tino mentioned.
"Mr. Robot", Music, Podcasts, Backup.
I went the other direction, at work I use Debian, on my Laptop ArchLinux and on my Raspberry Pi ArchLinuxARM.
So who is coding then?
Yeah, I do that too, especially for photos which I put on Flickr.
There is always https://github.com/kartikprabhu/hfeed2atom
@austintaylor so how did you find out about it in the end?
I might have overreacted and should do better research before posting stuff so thanks everyone participating in this media competence thingy. One final link, the search results wouldn't look that homogenous if my hypothesis was right: https://encrypted.google.com/search?hl=en&q=ricial+profiling+sweden
If people would publish on their own websites and not on 3rd party ones this would be a smaller probem.
Haha, I like the added dramatic music!
So, uhm, which article are you talking about Tobias?
You could use https://github.com/jeena/Speaker#speaker and just record it :D
@cjk101010 how long have you been away? We missed you on the Internet!
Why would cannibalising commercial broadcasters would be a bad thing?
Wow, this looks wonderfull! How long are you staying in Ireland? I've never been there, might want to come over for a weekend or so.
Nice article, mostly whining at the beginning but then ending with a positive attitude for the future.
Way to go!
Is that teriyaki duck or something like that?
It will be interesting to see how long you can do the non-whining phase ;) Otherwise I mostly agree with what you say.
Seems to work just fine.
So, where is Cork, in which country?
Every american I talked about it here said it was awesome!
Aaron, for a hack night edition we talked a lot! But suprisingly on topic.
I agree with the sentiment of the article, but I have kind of a problem with the working of Exibit A, I mean, the C64 was the last computer you as a human could compleatly understand, the whole hardware and software. That doesn't mean that newer computers which aren't as easy to understand are inaccessible to people. It surly is more complicated to understand them but on the other hand you get a lot benefits from the complexity. That could be the same with HTTP 2 too, don't you think?
Mostly I was thinking to be able to connect it to a network or at least to my laptop so I could get some new data from the Internet on it. And then I'd like to host some Amiga gaming parties where we can play on the TV like it's 1994!
Because on monday I'm getting on a 10 hours flight again, to the US for work this time :)
Btw. it would be cool if your feed would contain the images too.
I somehow still was subscribed to this RSS feed for about a year I guess? Didn't really expect it to be revived any time soon but happy to see something there anyway :D
Tom, we in the band use Viber which works on iOS, Android, OS X, Linux and Windows.
@mattgemmell would you care to link to some female driven podcasts? I find that the tough one, to find female Twitter users is the easiest, blogs are a bit harder but podcasts are the harderst, especially if you're looking for podcasts about something else than feminism.
@brooksreview I really wish I could use a computer like that but I'm always programming and compiling so I never even have half a day without plugin it in. Perhaps some day in the future when I get a PO job or something, who knows.
Ok, I just made and ate the first dish which was salmon on minitortilia with self made mango chutney, white onion with koreander and self made guacamole. It tasted really really great. But was so much work, damn. I’m not sure I’ll be up for those complicated meals for longer periods of time.
To play 3D games together with other people?
For after death there is https://archive.org/ which works with your indy website, but not with a closed silo. And before that you just copy your software to a different provider/domain, and keep the interaction with it the same, you can't do this with your content in a silo.
Mostly RSS and HackerNews. Twitter is too noisy and Facebook is for connecting with friends.
I don't need your website to change anything, and I don't need a browser extencion, I use a bookmarklet which does that and works for every webpage on the internet.
I like two quotes from this article: “Linux is for people who hate Microsoft” and "The Linux community is known for reinventing the square wheel over and over again"
First Yosemite impression: It looks like Elementary OS with a fuzzy system font.
Tom, people know how to buy an app on the store but don't know how to save a bookmark on the home screen.
@brentsimmons I also wrote my own thing, with rails and nginx as a caching thingy. I just added a couple of lines of mobile CSS and wouldn't change it for something else because I can get it working exactly like I want it to. I don't need to compromise that there is no subheadline field or something like that which I want to have.
@quellebouille yellow, red, sour and sweet!
GNOME got polished a lot lately. It is my default DE both at home and at work. Yesterday they released 3.14 and we had a release party in Gothenburg which I sadly couldn't attend. I'll try to update my laptop at home soon.
Apple having to release a U2-Album-removal tool is so funny :D I never really liked U2.
A bit weird that everybody is commenting the color. In other news, it is so awesome to fly it outside above grass where you don't have to worry that it crashes hard if you do something stupid :D
@quellebouille Don't ask such questions if you don't want to hear the answer ...
@tobiastom Ok, I think I was able to fix it now, so in the future it should work better.
@tobiastom yes you're totally right, this is a stupid bug I thought I have fixed but apparently not yet. I'll have another look at it.
That was it for today! Thanks for everyone watching me live brewing, asking questions and commenting. I had a lot of fun, I hope you got to see some useful things too.
@marcoarment The problem with the Tent devs is that they still prioritize their company over the protocol, which leads to not being able to use my own server/domain for almost a year. After asking they said that this is not prioritized, that was 9 month ago, I'm still waiting for the fix.
@ArturoVM thanks ^^
I think they also might be called "shithawks" (watch the Trailer Park Boys!)
It wasn't far I went today because I still have problems with my knee but it went much better than I thought.
The problem is that swift only works on OS X, what if you want to move on to a better OS?
@tobiastom I now moved replies to its own section and even added so I can reply to more then one origin.
Acegiak, I think something like that would be better implemented as its own application instead. Kyle, yeah exactly, or even like the one which shows RSS availability in the browser address bar.
This is kind of what it feels like when you're watching a modern dance performance.
I like theat, but sadly the links to the examples just lead to a 404 File Not Found right now.
Very cool that we have you, Kartik Prabhu :) perhaps some day we'll see that on your avatar too ;-)
Reading A List Apart's #yesallwomen article made me think about the #indieweb I know we have some active women with us which is great. But checking the blogs of at least the active members I found, where you often can see a avatar, I haven't seen a single non-white person, which is really sad. I understand that I am a privileged white male to be able to tackle the problems we work on within the IndieWeb but I just hoped that this privilege would have been distributed more evenly.
David, I tried the Firefox extension but it didn't really work like I expected. On Twitter it broke the design and often I wasn't able to click any of the buttons either.
David, what I would change are the alignments of all the boxes and their contents, so they start all on the same vertical pixel, etc. This is especially bad in the reply-form and the "Next note"-Link. I would also add more padding to many of the boxes, and here too use the same padding everywhere. (See especially padding-bottom of the search). The social media icons should be left aligned with the text above them. I'm impressed of the work you put in into this WP-theme!
@David I wasn't aware of the fact that you could attend them remotely, how did you do it?
My band Hoggatah just posted a first sneak peak of our new EP on Facebook, check it out!
23 Inspiring Feminist Digital Campaigns That Changed the World.
Real life Wolverine claws, kinda bad ass!
This is a really good talk: Programming is terrible — Lessons learned from a life wasted.
Useful attribute "accept" for the file upload tag in HTML.
I love Tumblr's move to more diverse looks of their blogs even on mobile.
Soon we're back in Tokyo after a 11 hour journey by bus ans train. Kurokawa Onsen hot springs were really really great!
They seem really happy to be eaten by me soon!
Don't drink and die.
Me at the Super Potato shop in Tokyo where they sell oldschool 8 bit consoles and games.
Board game evening.
Testdriving the new BMW i3 with a fully-electric drive. I really miss the German Autobahn right now!
@graue over there at #indieweb we're still working on the syndication problem.
My new computer at work, a T440p with Debian on it.
Now that we for the first time have only one guitar in the band I play in I'm thinking about getting a bass overdrive, just to thicken my side of the sound a bit. This Dunloop MRX Bass Overdrive looks and sounds subtle enough so it wouldn't overpower my deep bass ground work I think.
Holy shit, I'm watching the new "Cosmos" TV series with Neil deGrasse Tyson. It is so great! Most awesome graphics and when you hear Neil talking, it is like hearing lyrics to a lovesong to the universe!
Sometimes I like to make electronic dance music. Today some random German Techno.
Especially interesting for me how short of a time span Silesia belonged to Poland.
It is weird that you don't mention what they want to use instead of RSS. They want to use the HTML which already is on every website itself (wrapped into a bit of microformats). So the whole "feeds give us independence" is just a straw-man argument.
This photo is from 2001-10-21. Back then I was young and grunge was still a thing. The only thing that didn't change is the bass :D https://jeena.net/images/2013/jeena-metaltown.jpg
Police searching for a bomb right in front of our office. First week at work :D
So I found http://www.metaladies.com/ what a cool website! I've just been listening to NERVOSA from Brazil who are on Napalm Records. I'm actually thinking about buying their vinyl. I like their retro style with no trumpery.
Last time I visited my parents me and my father made sausages. It is awesome how much he knows about how to work with meat. I am trying to learn as much as possible during those brief moments.
@wto_ oh man haha, now I get what you mean. Yes hubbots are dogs!
@wto_ haha, yeah kind of, but they can talk and do work and have sex with you.
I was watching the TV series "Äkta människor" and am trying to read their source code.
I always liked this blog, he started it not a long time ago and it is about game programming for Firefox OS. Now he is writing a book from his great blog posts. It is really exciting because his posts are directed to novice programmers and you learn to write mobile games from the start.
I completely forgot how fast of a game ice-hockey is. Now Canada vs. Sweden
My journey of wiring up a hardware button to my Raspberry Pi, so I could build a remote door bell.
Jesus Christ, I know I am a n00b when it comes to electronics, but why did it take me the whole day of reading tutorials and watching YouTube videos about the Raspberry Pi to find out what I was doing wrong? This video is the first one which mentions that it is important that the cathode of a LED has to be connected to the ground, not the other way around.
This guy is a comedian, but this song is really nice and reminds me about that awesome time with my first iPhone.
I really don't like Metallica because of their attitude (Napster, TPB) and their bad music. But I'd go to a Iron Horse concert.
I'm so looking forward to the new "Trailer Park Boys" movie, which is called "Don't Legalize It!". If you haven't watched the TV series yet, do it, it is highly recommended. Yeah, it is white trash humor but really funny, and they're Canadians, everybody loves Canadians, am I right? :D
I just bought another 2kg of pork fillet to make more dried meat. 1 kg of pork meat is hanging by the heating element already.
I just ordered this most awesome poster by @imycomic https://img1.etsystatic.com/020/1/6008149/il570xN.564909135o1gx.jpg
@simoncoopey hehe, where did you send it from? It could be something wrong on my side too.
It is not quite true that http://caseorganic.com, http://aaronparecki.com and http://tantek.com do not provide a RSS feed. They do indeed, but sadly just don't link to it in a visible manner. You need to install some RSS-button extension which will show to you who offers a RSS feed which is only linked in the head-part of the HTML. For Chrome this one works well for me: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/rss-subscription-extensio/nlbjncdgjeocebhnmkbbbdekmmmcbfjd there are similar ones for all the other major browsers. But I agree that it is absolutely not obvious for normal people that they offer feeds.
"Zootool made us realize that the general idea of running a central service is nothing we believe in any longer. Your data should belong to you and shouldn't be stored on our servers. You shouldn't have to rely on us or on any other service to keep your data secure and online."
@molily I'm not entirely against "You might not need jQuery", I use it only for DOM access/manipulation but most of my projects don't need to do that (much or at all) and then having jQuery as a dependency is just unnecessary work because you have to update it and stuff.
Ah I see, this is kind of a problem with many out of the shelf solutions out there right now. They all kind of expect to be run at the domain root. In theory it is possible to run a proxy server but then some of the software gets confused about how the links should work. Some day in the future we will have a solution for it, until that I will just change the name of your Atom feed in my feed reader ;)
Just a quick question, why is your site title "Stream" and not for example "erinjo"?
@agatajs @g16n u nas w Szwecji to samo. Znam dwie firmy które razem chcą przyjąć 50 ludzi w tym roku w Göteborgu. Tyle ani nie kończy uniwersytet w tej dziedzinie, a co z tymi innymi firmami? A w tym samym czasie dyzo moich znajomych jest bezrobotnych. Ale nie umie ich namówić aby zacząć szkole w tej dziedzinie bo mówią: "Ale nie to jest za trudne i za nudne dla mnie." :-/

While in 2000 about 562.000 died because of measles, in 2012 the number went down to 122.000 which is a decline of 78%! http://www.who.int/wer/2014/wer8906.pdf #Science #Bitch!
If this could happen today is an interesting question. I'm not sure either, back then such communities had their forums where you could find other likeminded people and they had networks of blogs who at least linked to each other in the blogroll, but also commented. Sadly spam killed blog comments for me :-/
@pfefferle very nice, where can I find all the code for those plugins?
This is cool! I kind of do the same but I don't have a fancy plugin infrastructure, just a bunch of functions. How do you get the data back from the silos, are you using bridgy too?
Yep, just got it with a little help of a friend, had to use smtp instead of sendmail and now it works. I wasn't aware of the fact that you have a blog which is indiewebified, that is awesome! :D
@arturovm Ok the github version of FeedMonkey works now with Pond waiting to be able to implement: https://github.com/jeena/FeedMonkey/blob/master/js/Pond.js#L187
@arturovm you know what we should do in the long run? Write a TTRSS plugin which supports Pond the protocol, like they did with the Feever API https://github.com/dasmurphy/tinytinyrss-fever-plugin
@arturovm path extention is easier even if content-type feels be more pure.
@rodneyrehm that is an awesome picture of the cloud!
@arturovm minimalism is nice but the easy to use part would benefit from error reporting with least surprise :) That's why I've opened a couple of issues.
@goetzb you're most welcome :-)
@arturovm ok, I started it and added two feeds but now I'm kind of stuck, there is no description of the api linked on Github?
@arturovm aah good that you mention it, I will get to it now, my first time with Go, this will be interesting :)
Glen, could you change the title of your atom links in the HTML so they don't both say "atom" but instead for example "Articles" and "Notes" or something like that?
@imycomic Yes, Yes, Yes! I want it! How big is it and where can I get it (and how much ^^)? Actually I was just about to ask :D
@sweden holy! I love the "Science" poster on your wall, I want it now!
@epirat yeah, and sadly you just get: "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by ARD."
@arturovm not yet, but I should start writing one really soon.
@peakwinter nice! Thanks for the link, this one is much easier to see for normal people but I suspect they'll shut it down too soon.
The German national TV station ARD did the first interview with Edward Snowden. Sadly they decided to not allow it on YouTube and they do not allow to watch it on their website either, at least here from Sweden, and only dubbed in German if you're in Germany. But you can find it on The Piratebay http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/9532428/Snowden-InterviewinEnglish2014-01-26960x544 I just watched it and they didn't ask really interesting questions. Perhaps next time?
@tobiastom what about because it is cold outside?
@shanselman yeah we all kind of do, because the approach with the notification center and the badges with one integer seems kind of outdated.
Damn it! Last year I was looking for a better Address book alternative, I found Cobook which sounded great. But before I even was able to test it, I just found out that they've been sold http://blog.cobook.co/post/73405244860/cobook-fullcontact so another promising application is dead. It is happening over and over again, every time I find a interesting closed source app it gets sold, just like Sparrow.
@wiesoauch uh huch, zum Glück, ich sitze nämlich schon im Zug! ^^
@cjk101010 I’ll be in about an hour!
@diplix german Tweet about #webmention wohoo!
