I didn't know Pleroma, socialhome, Gang go and Indieweb.

And I am learnig that nextcloud is working on ActivityPub. That is really a good things cause I like nextcloud for sync and sharing files and calendar. I never understook how to do that with hubzilla.

World’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge opens in Switzerland

Switzerland has opened the world’s longest suspension footbridge. It is 494 meters long.

The bridge is suspended between 1,600 meters and 2,200 meters above sea level. It is only 65 centimeters wide and goes as high as 85 meters above the ground.

Hikers, within sight of the famed mountain, the Matterhorn, and the Bernese Alps, can cross it in about 10 minutes

The bridge crosses the deepest-cut valley in Switzerland. Hikers can look down onto it through grates in the bridge.

Without the bridge, the journey previously took up to four hours.

According to Swiss reports, it took only 10 weeks to build the bridge. And the structure surpasses Germany’s “Titan-RT” as the world’s longest suspension footbridge. The “Titan-RT”, which opened last month, is just over 450 meters long. It crosses Germany’s highest reservoir, the Rappbode Dam.

The Swiss bridge is also longer than the so-called “footbridge in the sky.” This bridge, built in 2014, is part of the Sochi Sky Park in Russia. It spans 439 meters and includes observation platforms looking on the mountains and the Black Sea Coast.

I should have ActivityPub connecting/following working both directions now; or pretty close to it. Another day or three and we may be ready to start passing some text messages back and forth.

I'm reminded of the film "The Day After" back in the 80s -
This is Lawrence... is there anybody out there? Anybody at all ...

Operation Pub Crawl
You wouldn't expect to go into a pub and be asked for a membership card - or you can't get in to have a beer and talk to your mates.

Neither would I.

Announcing Operation Pub Crawl. It's kind of like ActivityPub, but you can participate without being an ActivityPub member. Operation Pub Crawl is based on and is compliant with ActivityStreams2 (JSON-LD). It is also somewhat compatible with ActivityPub, but has no membership requirement; so you'll find people in the Pub Crawl that you won't find in ActivityPub. We have to break some rules to do this, but these rules serve no useful purpose except to restrict membership and prevent members from communicating with non-members. Other ActivityPub sites and projects may decide that they want to restrict membership and enforce the rules strictly. This is OK. You can still communicate with them. They'll just miss out on half the party. If you're in the Pub Crawl, you can talk to anybody you wish, on any network you wish. Pub Crawl will be available as a plugin to red/hubzilla in Q3 2017.

@Hubzilla Support Forum+

I am checking my hub and realised that in the .htconfig.php
App::$config['system']['server_role'] = 'pro';

But on Server Configuration/Role in the admin side

I had Standard

Who is master .htconfig.php or the admin side (I imagine database side)

What is the consequence to have  pro ? I will change it to standard because I don't understand the consequence and I red that pro was dangerous

Steady progress on the ActivityPub plugin. It's a mountain of work and I'm certainly not going to bust my ass, but it's moving along at a satisfactory pace.  

Now move along.

Second post probably it will be dupplicated post but I don't find the orginal post I wrote.

I have a hub but it does not work at all at the moment I have this message.

Apologies but this site is unavailable at the moment. Please try again later.

I don't know what to do to repair it. Any idea ? I am not very good at administrating a server. I thought that hubzilla would be easy but now I am lost. where to continue.

I changed the root password and it works now. Now I have to change again password because I suspect someone hack me.

Finaly raymond you was right. There was no connection to the database
Raymond Monret
  
Glad it helped you

It's not connecting to the db. I would see if myself is running, restart and or check for corrupted tables.

Montreux in July

If you go from Lausanne, the motor way from Lausanne to Montreux is maybe the most beautiful motorway in the world. Lake, mountain, vineyard, tunnels and 20 mn later you are in Montreux. I want to invite you just walking at the lake promenade. Forget all and relax.

The walking path at the lake is a botanical garden with lot of plants and flowers. Stop and sit at the bench.

I cannot comment mikes posts. So I share it and comment after. Maybe he had to create mastodon with zot protocol that would be cool.

Having a light (microblog) use of hubzilla would be nice. Hubzilla is to heavy like a swiss knife. it is doing all even what we dont' need.

Well, Mastodon is implementing Activitypub, which, if implementation is successful, will fix the problems with OStatus by replacing it. We will see, lots of questions open with AP - no one in the w3c group claims there isn't.

The loadaverage.org migration is taking even longer than the memorable identi.ca migration. And on that topic, identi.ca has also been down for days now.

Nomadic identity, folks. It's not just a good idea. It's a bloody great idea.


Nomadic identity is for account it is not for instance or hub or pob #nomadic

Neuchatel lake

Lake of Neuchatel is the bigest lake of entirely in Switzerland. Geneva lake is shared with France and Konstance lake is shared with Germany. The lake receives the Orbe River, the Arnon, the Areuse, and the Mentue. The canal of Thielle drains the lake into Lake Biel-Bienne and is part of regulation system for the lakes and the rivers of the Seeland region. Lake Neuchâtel was the home of the now extinct species of deepwater trout Salvelinus neocomensis.

In red today: Just implemented conversation fetching for GNU-Social and Mastodon to make up for the somewhat haphazard delivery model of OStatus. I'll have to test this a bit (or a lot) before recommending this get cherry-picked to Hubzilla. It's complicated by the fact that each network has a unique way of fetching the conversation fragments they know about and there's no standardisation. It's actually a defined protocol message in zot and honours privacy settings. It also is very rarely used - mostly if somebody likes a post that's three years old and everybody expired the post long ago. In OStatus it's pretty much required because they deal with messages and "conversations" are pretty much an afterthought. Diaspora has an endpoint for this but they keep changing the way it works and it isn't really documented anywhere and doesn't work at all with private conversations. In GNU-Social it's part of the Twitter API and the fact it works at all is mostly accidental. In Mastodon it's in a different place completely and not documented there either. I think there was some talk about defining/supporting this for activitypub but on that network it has some serious (currently unsolved) privacy issues.

Oh what fun.

To take my mind off of gloomy thoughts I've been busy at the keyboard. Red is evolving. Hubzilla folks won't have seen much of this but I've more or less figured out how to resolve the nomadic identity and cross-federation dilemma and implemented a lot of it. As a consequence we don't need server roles any more. The diaspora and gnusoc plugins have improved a *lot* and I've moved the caldav/carddav server into core, and fixed some problems with webdav and large files. I'll probably do an activitypub plugin at some point because it's like Facebook. It's a steaming pile of shit which gets smellier by the day but you can't really avoid it and have any future in social networking. Like the other federation plugins, it won't be nomadic and the privacy implementation is horrible but at least there's a poorly defined implementation. We've worked with worse. Access control and magic-auth won't ever work with it, but again we've worked with steaming piles of shit before. They are what they are. You just hold your nose and wonder why anybody uses this shit, but they do and they'll lash out at you for questioning their choice. All familiar territory. Same old story.

This is really depressing. If I spend a day working on Diaspora, Mastodon federation falls to pieces. If I work on Mastodon, Diaspora federation falls to pieces. And if I end up hospitalised tomorrow nobody will ever know how hard I tried to make both of the fuckers work.

[edit: on the bright side, zot has been working pretty well.]

La Sarraz Castle

Built on a rocky spur, the castle of La Sarraz was built in 1049. Unlike most other castles, that of La Sarraz has always been the residence of the barons of La Sarraz and has never changed hands until The death of the last chatelaine in 1948. This peculiarity is its interest and its richness: it has kept the character of a dwelling inhabited and the objects it shelters have been acquired over the years.

The Castle of  La Sarraz has some of the most beautiful collections of furniture and paintings in Switzerland. Reunited by the family of Gingins in the course of their long history, they are the result of a slow and talented accumulation which is in the continuity of this lineage.

The Castle of La Sarraz reopens its doors to the visit after three years of closure, in 2017. You can now visit the castle and it is well worth it.

The first room you can visit is the living room.
