Since #hubzilla 2.6 I again see a lot of people in my timeline whose posts I didn't see for some time. It's nice to be more federated than ever :D

@mcnalu @perloid you guys are my test subjects to try #hubzilla to GNU Social/Mastodon connectivity...

Just discovered another reason to use my Fairphone 2 googfree:


An Android 6 factory reset performed through recovery mode will NOT delete any Google account login information stored on the phone.
This is a safety measure Google implemented with Android 6 to add an extra layer of security. As soon as you reboot the phone you will be asked to log into the Google account which was registered on the phone at the time of the reset.


I hate these "security measures" which only give the goog more control over your phone.

Extra layer of security? For Google maybe, not for the user.

Hey all,

I've got a channel which I manage with someone else. I gave them permission to manage said channel. It works flawlessely for them to switch to this channel, but then two things seem weird:
  • In the top left avatar menu they see all my channels to select from, not only the one I delegated. Then of course they have no permission to use one of the other listed channels.
  • I wasn't able to find a way to switch back to their usual channel. When they try to access the channel manager it says "permission denied". The only way to switch is to log out and log in again.


It this my Hub malfunctioning or is this the intended behaviour?

Thanks,

Beni

#1 is a #bug
#2 IIRC is a known limitation
Beni Grind
  
Thanks @Mario Vavti ! As a workaround of #1 I disabled the menu channel selection.

#1 should be fixed now

Hey all,

A few questions regarding 2.6RC and CardDav integration in core:

Where did the documentation of the correct caldav/carddav end point go? I remember looking this up on the plugin page.

Secondly, where do I activate caldav access for a certain channel. The Android app doesn't accept any of the possible end points I tried.

Thanks!

Haha, okay. Is it possible for use to run another hubchart site or mirror it someone? I never looked into how that actually works.

@Paolino created it and has opensourced it somewhere... IIRC it is a java application...

Hey all,

Is the CardDAV address book import supposed to work? I tried to import a vcf export from my Nextcloud instance and it didn't do anything. Clicking the upload button didn't showed absolutely no reaction.

When I look at the http requests Hubzilla sends, there is no request being sent when clicking. Furthermore the Javascript console also doesn't show any error.

I think this article pretty much sums up why I think #Hubzilla is such a great piece of software. I don't see the people in charge here making any of the mentioned mistakes.

Wow, yeah that article could have been written by Mike and Mario!

Today I built (copied) a serial cable to control a ARM loom. I'm not sure whether this is some proprietary wiring or some default cable you could get off the shelf.

Analysis the cable provided showed the following wiring pattern:

My last evening in Scotland. I packed the bike and didn't take a lot of pictures. That's why you'll only get pictures of the drinks I had... #cyclingscotland

Falkirk Wheel - Wikipedia

The Falkirk Wheel is a rotating boat lift in Scotland, connecting the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal. The lift is named after the nearby town of Falkirk in central Scotland. It opened in 2002, reconnecting the two canals for the first time since the 1930s as part of the Millennium Link project. The plan to regenerate central Scotland's ...

Apparently they either know something about coffee or programming on the Isle of Mull. I'm expecting to ride into the town of C++ next. #cyclingscotland

Ah yeah, and it's obviously raining again.

passing places ... Typic Scotland

I considered bringing my camera. But I would have to charge it every couple of hours as it's not solar powered. But then, the films would be pretty boring as I'm riding slow.
kris
  
Film is not prety boring if you film scenary that is majestic but I understand that charging electronic equipment could be a problem. Do you have solar charger ? I am curious about the efficiencity in cloud environement with just a little light

That's my third time on Skye and the first time I actually see more than a few meters in fog and rain.... #cyclingscotland

In fact it was way too warm for my taste.

I ended up on a very eco-friendly camp site with nice views. But there will be midges!

If you ever consider pushing a touring bike through Glen Affric here is some advise for you: don't! The scenery is beautiful but you won't be able to enjoy it since you're fighting your bike. #cyclingscotland

It's the altitude. There were forests in the lower parts of the valley.
