Couple dozen people at the WH #pizzagate protest. This is one crazy country.

Today in my little world (March 24th, 2017)

Today I learned that:
  • Diaspora* dev now features mentions in comments. This is the kind of features that I was missing when I set up my pod last year. Of course now that I have a vested interest in Friendica I won't switch back, I'm just glad people can enjoy the ease of use of Diaspora* and a greater range of features.

Today I found that
  • The awful American Health Care Act bill the GOP concocted to replace the Affordable Care Act has been pulled out because of insufficient support within the GOP. This is slightly encouraging.

Today I did:
  • Move all my Atom/RSS feeds to my Friendica instance. No more relying on a third-party service which was The Old Reader after Google Reader closed. No more random sponsored posts for me.

I know he said that with a sad face as if it was a bad thing, but I'd rather take it as his best political promise to date.
BREAKING: Speaker Paul Ryan says the nation will be 'living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future.'


Today in my tiny world (March 23rd, 2017)

Today I learned that:
  • In PHP, a strict comparison === is faster than == because no implicit type conversion happens.
  • Airline pilots can become confused when the automation fails in a plane, as exemplified by Air France flight 447, whom 99% Invisible podcast explains the unraveling. I warmly recommend listening to all the episodes of this fantastic podcast.

Today I found that:

regading mobile themes ..

what happened to decaf? .. by far the best mobile theme -
sure no-frills but works on everything - reliably

It has nobody to care, so it was deprecated and deleted from the master-repository. If you need it, I've collected the deprecated themes here:

I have it .. as it was a while back ..

still want to help, that want hasn't changed, but the past few years have been pretty weird to say the least

it seems to be much harder to run test servers these days
let alone keep a dev box alive for long with every operating system looking as unstable as every other with all of them destroying themselves with updates the user has no say in.

how does anyone get anything done when things look like that?

Tobias 2 days ago
Depends on what you want to test. If it's "only" work on a theme, you can fire up a Vagrant VM to do so.

I have a Debian server running Apache and MySQL almost 10 years now, nothing fancy. What are the OS you have trouble with?

TIL I learned my 2,5-years old daughter can better relate to Trump than me.

Methodically blocking all accounts promoting content on Twitter. It started with big name brands, I am now excited for the bottom of the barrel.

strange that it says that this was posted from there

I prefer to post to to my server first then from there send it to wherever

if twitter's api is broken thats their problem

Hypolite Petovan 2 days ago
I don't understand. It was posted first on Twitter, then mirrored on Friendica. Twitter API isn't broken to my knowledge?


Today in my little world (March 22nd, 2017)

Today I learned that:
  • You can add a feed URL as a Friendica contact. I had no idea! I currently use a very complex system involving IFTTT and fake accounts to publish RSS Feed items. It's going to be so much simpler now!

Today I found that:
  • UK has been the target of a small scale terrorist attack in London. I don't know what's going to come out of it, but I know it's not going to be good. 😞
  • Medium and Microsoft are filtering the User-Agent to offer limited/throttled features. 😡

Today I did:
  • Complete the english translation of my own Fallout 4 review. I spent 180 hours on the game and am not completely proud of it.
  • Play Borderlands 2 for a while after a long (Fallout 4) hiatus. I thought I had found the character to rekindle my love for this game with the Mechromancer, but the randomness of the loot is boring me again.

Currently facepalming because @Medium prevents you to access the post editor based on the User-Agent 🤦‍♂️

Is there any other icon ?‍♂️

And... I can't look a the source of this message on friendica. strange (element not found)

Hypolite Petovan 2 days ago
I can't see the emoji on my work laptop (MacOS X 10.10 Yosemite) either, it's one of the newest that only a handful of systems and devices support.

What's the URL that gives "Element Not Found"?

Hypolite Petovan 1 day ago
Weird, there's an extra "/hypolite" in the URL that shouldn't be there. @Michael Vogel , do you know where this URL could be coming from?

What the @instagram ? Did I trigger a hidden Easter egg when I wrote "Mystery" in the caption?


Today in my tiny world (March 21, 2017)

Since I now have a micro-blogging platform, I wanted to start keeping track of the little things I did, learned or find about every day. This one actually comprises a few days' worth of findings, I'm expecting the future updates to be slimmer. Don't hesitate to ask about any item.

Today in my tiny world, I learned that:
  • PHP array_filter used without filter simply removes array items whose value translate to false.
  • jQuery show()/hide() actually restores the initial display value the item had when hiding

Today in my tiny world, I found that:

Today in my tiny world, I did:
  • A round-trip of the Franklin Avenue Shuttle train as requested by my daughter. It's a tiny aerial subway line doing a few stops and it took us around 30 mn.
  • A wooden train track for my daughter featuring a double-height bridge
  • Review the first 1200 changed lines of a massive coding standards project for Friendica spearheaded by @Roland Häder 😵
  • Remove a dead mouse from our apartment. It was probably hiding in a storage compartment and picking up stuff moved it in our sight.

Yes, thank you very much for doing this. The #Friendica code base is really kind of a mess. :-(

Couldn't agree more, although it is not a fatality, and you are greatly contributing to improve it!

Thanks, Bing.

There's a hobbit walking round the village carrying a sandwich board for local luggage shop on one side, and the local pub on the other.

Apparently, he's called Billboard Baggins.

The ultimate advantage of teaching my daughter french in an anglophone city is that no one else understands her embarassing statements.
