I'll have to settle for lunch at a great local spot, since I didn't get the invite to the Royal Wedding Reception!
Go for it Adam...go for it

@Ɽł₵Ⱨ₳ⱤĐ don't get me wrong, I did watch what I could of the wedding on BBCAmerica when I woke up. Saw the end of the ceremony and the Carriage Procession.


Anyone out there using #archlinux and also #nextcloud installed Talk? Curious about installing it through the built in "app store" vs the AUR package. Also, general usage/testing results and thoughts.

You may have trouble connecting with anyone behind NAT (which is pretty much everyone) without one. I think nextcloud runs a public one you can use.

Yeah, I was just looking at the settings. There's a STUN and Signaling default, but as you say/know the TURN is example. I'll have to look into this some more. But otherwise, you are able to "connect" with users of other nextcloud nodes. This is also something I have not done, though I do see a field for the contacts app that is for Federated Cloud ID.

I've installed other packages from the Arch repository of software that on other OS's would want to maintain its own updates, and my experience was that the Arch updates would lag only a couple of days behind...

Wow, I am super happy seeing all the new nodes springing up lately. From my last recollection, the list at went from 48 to 62 during the last months!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day friends!!

Happy Friday friends! ☕

Happy Birthday @Fabio !!! 🍰

Thank you! Thank you!
@🐰yp🥚li✝️e Pet🥚van I accept also English, French and Spanish 😁


I've been somewhat absent from the #fediverse lately. Work has been super busy as of late, and doesn't seem to be letting up any time soon. It also seems like forever since I've submitted a PR for ~friendica ~friendica 🙁
🐰yp🥚li✝️e Pet🥚van doesn't like this.

Don't worry about it, Friendica will still be here when you'll have more free time back. Additionally, any PR is appreciated, and the quality of yours actually improved with feedback, which is even more appreciated!

No problem - although we all will be happy when your time permits some work at Friendica again 😀 There is always enough to do.

But more important than that is, that you don't stress yourself.


Don’t use Huawei phones, say heads of FBI, CIA, and NSA - The Verge

During his testimony, FBI Director Chris Wray said the the government was “deeply concerned about the risks of allowing any company or entity that is beholden to foreign governments that don’t share our values to gain positions of power inside our telecommunications networks.”
What about domestic governments that don’t share our values or gain positions of power inside our telecommunications networks?

Guess we'll need to start our own mesh network!

When one is attending a web meeting and eating M&Ms, one must remember to put oneself on mute!
One better does. I found in our company meetings, done by Skype, that I can mute people in a team conference, which I do if they are to noisy. I guess sometime they will have trouble to unmute themselves again, but I guess one has to know his/her shit to master it.

Yes, we had been using GoToMeeting and recently moved to WebEx. Typically everyone is pretty good about muting themselves, but I don't usually eat during these meetings, so I sometimes forget myself!

Does it have a mute per default, similar to Mumble or Teamspeak with a push-to-talk button (at least the first one does have it)?

With WebEx, you click a mute button which is just a toggle. The host does have the ability to mute people, either all, or individually.

Good morning friends! ☕ The coffee is tasting especially good this morning!

Finally just wrapped up a deployment sprint. It's been quite the busy past 10 days! Time to relax a bit, until Monday.

As of this morning #Arch Linux updated their repos with the latest #Nextcloud !!! I can finally update my server! There were 132 packages waiting... Let's hope my server doesn't explode!!

Nope, just wild and crazy! All the stuff that I have in NC is synced to multiple devices, so I never feel like I'd lose everything.

Yeah, luckily I didn't try to update my server until they put the dependency for < 7.2 so the whole update process would just stop.

I do enjoy the Superbowl, but I am usually more excited for the commercials.
@Adam Magness I've been hearing that all day today from the most random of peoples.

@Gabe. R. there were a few really good ones. Past years have had some let downs, but this year quality was high
