This article is interesting in that it marries video game nostalgia and historical political concerns that happened to outlive the mentioned video game studio.

For me, it's a clear sign that unapologetic racism isn't new with Trump, it has always been there, long before I personally started getting an interest in politics.

bah ouais :( fight for your rights

Man - I've never done the Police Quest thing - but holy fuck. I didn't realize Gates was involved - it gives me a new perspective on my love of Sierra

I was too young to realize anything about politics back then. My parents never were involved with national or world politics and I certainly had no such interest beyond the actual video games.

@Hyp❄️l🎄te Pet❄️van my primary interactions with Kings Quest involved my mom sticky noting common words to the bottom of our monitor since I couldn't spell well being 5-7 years old

Interesting bokeh effect. Is this a picture from mobile?

a filter, imho...

It's an Instagram effect, linear tilt shift.

I left it just in case their owner would come back.



 
Hi @Friendica Support

an upcoming PR on the develop will change the way you will install and update Friendica. From now on, after cloning the friendica/friendica repository or after each pull, the following command is necessary to import the dependencies:
friendica$ util/composer.phar install
This will populate the vendor folder who will be dropped from the friendica repository after this PR.

This command is already available right now, however so far it wasn't doing anything because we versioned all the dependencies along with the Friendica code.

For developers:

If you intend on adding new Composer dependencies, you still have to run
friendica$ util/composer.phar install
after any git pull and before making any change to composer.json and running
friendica$ util/composer.phar update
This is because we are using a Composer plugin to import Javascript dependencies along with PHP and this plugin needs to be imported before it can look up new Javascript dependencies.

If you have any additional questions I'm available either here, on GitHub or by private message.
I did that yesterday and todays git pull is producing now this
Updating ab90bd2..7eb637c
error: Your local changes to the following files would be overwritten by merge:
vendor/bin/composer-php
vendor/bin/composer-php.bat
vendor/composer/autoload_classmap.php
vendor/composer/autoload_static.php

Please delete your vendor folder completely.

After I did that i only did a composer update instead of composer install.For 15 minutes I was a little shocked ;) But then I remembered to try a composer install ;)

update is only necessary if you are changing the dependencies, otherwise install is the way to go.

Good to know. Will update my script ;)

I thought the original post was clear about that 😢

hmm my interpretation was different. Because you wrote
after any git pull and before making any change to composer.json and running
friendica$ util/composer.phar update


"after any git pull" was my trigger ;)

Ok, I see the problem. I shouldn't have mentioned the update at all 😅

hehehe not for people like me ;)

I bet you were stressed for that time!!!

Remember.. use the force (install not update!)

I put that as comment in my script ;)

Public service announcement: I am in “Fuck everything” mode, please entertain me (or merge my pull request if you can).

Yeah, this is an issue with nested comments. I do have it as well and will have a look at it.



 
I just saw a Youtube ad banner saying "Click here to block ads".

If you missed the last blockchain mishap, here's LegalFling, a new-fangled service that manages to misunderstand the blockchain, consent and sex.

Blockchains are hot. 😍

That is a kind of BDSM thing😄



 
Tonight, I experienced two significant cultural differences between France and the United States:
  • Vegetable soup contains pasta ⁉️ In France, vegetable soup contains only, well, vegetables.
  • There's only one spoon size, and teaspoon and tablespoon just are units of measurement ⁉️⁉️ In France, there are small spoons for breakfast, coffee and desserts, and large spoons for soup.

Reading this here I feel rather unsettled now, as there're three types of spoons in my kitchen. (Small for tea or coffee, medium for dessert, large for soup.)

My de-facto existential crisis about a sudden awareness of overwhelming choice was aggravated by an unexplainable urge to interrupt an ongoing dishwasher cycle to inspect the objects in questions in more detail... What did I let myself in signing up here?

I just read a self-described French patriot praise VK, the "Great Russia of Putin" and vilify the "French dictatorship" about #Twitter "censorship". I'm questioning everything I know about geopolitics and human intelligence right now.

there's no such thing as a french patriot; there's just citizens and dumbass with flags. More dumbasses than citizens these days, i'm afraid

You met a troll. He managed to grab your attention. 1:0? :D

Yeah, I'm very easily puzzled by trolls, that's why I left Twitter, I was unintentionally exposed to so much trolling it bummed me out constantly.



 

17 mensonges que nous devons arrêter de dire aux filles à propos du sexe


  • La virginité existe.
  • L’hymen est le signe de la virginité.
  • Toutes les femmes sont nées avec un vagin.
  • La première fois, ça va faire mal. Vraiment.
  • Si quelqu’un vous achète quelque chose, vous lui devez un rapport sexuel.
  • Trop de sexe va vous étirer.
  • Les femmes ne pensent pas beaucoup au sexe.
  • Les femmes n’aiment pas le sexe sans lendemain.
  • C’est aux garçons d’acheter les préservatifs.
  • Les épouses « frigides » font les maris infidèles.
  • Vous devez vous épiler.
  • Vous ne pouvez pas avoir de rapport sexuel pendant vos règles.
  • Le sexe est censé faire mal parfois.
  • Une fois que le rapport sexuel a commencé, vous ne pouvez plus dire « non ».
  • Les femmes ne regardent pas de porno.
  • Le harcèlement sexuel est normal.
  • Tout le monde le fait.

C'est fou les efforts qui ont été déployés pour encadrer la sexualité des femmes...


 
Pretty revealing that US politicians can be in trouble for lying to the FBI, but not to 320+ millions US persons during every single press conference. #policestate

Obama has a Nobel Peace prize and personally signed off on over 26,000 bombs (on record) being dropped his last year in office alone.

AND JUST TO REMIND:
"Despite these occurrences, nationally law enforcement did nothing, the executive branch did nothing, the legislative branch did nothing, and the judicial branch did nothing."

So bomb drops aside, Obama was right in there with going
"Rigged elections? Rampant political bribery? SOUNDS PERFECTLY O.K. TO ME!" :-D

anyhow, beyond that nonsense that somehow billions bought into
in the first quarter of the S&P 500 record setting year of 2017
10 companies accounted for 40% of the total gains.
This naturally meant the remaining 490 companies accounted for 60% of the gains.
Which naturally meant of the remaining 490 companies, their was an average contribution of .112% to the market.
Now despite the fact that if the top 10 companies were removed this meant that an unprecedented MARKET CRASH was occurring, they just went ahead and called the mathematically BLATANT technocracy monopoly and OBVIOUSLY rigged and manipulated market, "All time record breaking market highs."
AND PEOPLE THE GLOBE OVER BOUGHT IT! (or at least accepted the absurdity)

So there were the WTF elections, there were Nobel bomb droppers, there were unprecedented crashing markets being called Record Market highs....
The absurdity didn't stop there either.

Like I said, 2017 is one for the record books.

Granted, the absurdity has only continued to accelerate it's pace thus far in 2018.

I'm kind of giving the world the benefit of the the doubt, I'm pretty sure there was a pretty big difference between political speeches and actions before Trump and Macron, before Obama and Hollande, even before Bush Jr. and Sarkozy, but at this time I wasn't paying much attention to political news.

But since I started paying attention, it's been pretty much the same blatant disconnection between displayed intentions, actual actions and the reality. It feels like there's less and less scruples at the highest offices, but then again it may also be because I started getting exposed to more politics than usual.

Stumbled upon Ecosia on a YouTube ad:
"Ecosia is the search engine that plants trees with its ad revenue."
I don't even know where to start with, the initial YouTube ad, the toxic ad revenue model for search engines or any other website, or the misdirected tree planting with a real-time counter on the homepage. But it somehow manages to make Google look good in comparison.

I guess it comes down to whether they're a search engine company that runs an ecological project, or an ecological project that operates a search engine to fund itself.

In the latter case, I don't see how it's much different from holding a bake sale, or doing a charity walk. Is it your distaste for advertising in particular that creates revulsion here?

Of course it does. Beyond that, my problem with this company is that they aren't creating any value that already exist. Search engines? There are too many already, and searx is a great initiative to get around that fact. Reforestation efforts? Ongoing, you can already donate to multiple organizations without having to fork 20% to a bunch of misled dudes.

This is just capitalizing on blanket anti-Google and fuzzy "I do good by changing nothing in my life" feelings and I resent them for that.



 
This was bugging me since I saw Blade Runner 2049, and I finally wrote about why it is bad.

On #Facebook you remember why you started following someone but you don't know why you keep following them.
On #decentralized social media you don't remember why you started following someone but you know why you still follow them!
@MastodonProject @FriendicaNews @joindiaspora
I always am searching a tool to maintain my contacts. I want a tool that help me to know if I keep following or not. What I am doing is checking the older contact and checking manualy if it is still active and still interesting.

How do you maintain your relation list ?

In general I only remove people who are posting too much or content that I don't feel relevant to me anymore. Silent contacts don't bother me as I'm not made aware they're silent.

never really needed to do much maintainance there ..

so far I haven't seen any spam or anything else turn up via federation that would annoy me enough to block/unfollow anyone so for me maintaining contacts has been mostly just about people moving accounts/servers. (reconnecting, etc)

I guess some of the larger public servers went offline a few times over the years - a lot of the same domains often turned up in dead contacts.



 


 
15 months after being brutally thrown from Facebook into the wonderful world of #Decentralized Social Media, I'm proud to announce that I started unfollowing some people I initially randomly followed because I can't keep up with all the content I'm getting in my timeline! #goals
Or you could just follow MORE people like me!

Then you just never know what your timeline will look like at any given second.

Well, I haven't unfollowed you, for sure. 🙄

Yeah, my timeline is crowded as well. The only difference to the commercial systems is that mostly you don't follow persons you know, but you get to know the persons you follow.

Yep, on Facebook you remember why you started following someone but you not why you keep following them. On here you don't remember why you started following someone but you know why you still follow them!
