Listening to Xið 97.7 ( http://x977.visir.is/) and trying to get some work done. I'm not really functioning at 30C. Hope autumn will arrive here, soon.

There are morings when I really like my commute on the bicycle.

Well I do drive; starting in rural pastoral land skirting the edge of the Blue Mountain Wilderness Area, through a micro village, then plunging into deep bushland for most of the trip (no visible habitations as far as the eye can see in any direction), and then driving down an inland cliff overlooking the South Pacific before finally reaching work (a couple of minutes from the beach). It isn't at all unpleasant.

It's certainly a change from the US where I used to spend an hour competing with a million other people on a 12 lane freeway to go eight miles.

@Mike Macgirvin Switzerland is definitely more crowded than Australia but since I live in quite rural Central Switzerland car commuting is nothing like what I hear from big US cities. The rare days I have to commute by car aren't all that bad. It's just that I prefer two wheeled vehicles and don't really like driving all that much.

@Jake Moomaw hmm... you need to add a lot of zeros at the end of that number for me to reconsider.

The good thing back home is that I don't always have to pedal on the bike...

Finally I migrated everything including my contacts and calendars over to NextCloud...

I'm so bad at running my own #Taskwarrior sync server. I tried to generate new certificates which lead to the server not starting anymore... There is just no ouput, not even with the --debug flag... :(
Beni Grind
  
@Bob Mottram Actually I was moving from Org Agenda over to #Taskwarrior. I'm just too much of a CLI guy not to have my task in a console, not a text editor.
Bob Mottram
  
I was using Taskwarrior before, but it was really only well suited for single line descriptions. In some cases I needed more detailed descriptions, especially when employment-related tasks were included.
Beni Grind
  
@Bob Mottram that's true, longer descriptions are a problem that's not very well solved in Taskwarrior. I usually only use them to attach a link to a task if I ever use them. With org-agenda I somehow never managed to get a setup that really worked for me without ending up in a huge mess of text files. Taskwarrior worked out of the box. I figure it always depend on how you work. I usually keep detailed descriptions of task in separate documents of sometimes even as paper in a folder, so all I ever need is a single line.

I kept switching from Emacs to Vim back and fro. Now I've discovered Evil Mode. I think this could really solve my dilemma...

@Hubzilla Support Forum+

Hey all,

I've got my main channel on grindcore.ch. As a backup the channel is also available on hubloc.net

https://hubloq.net/channel/navigium

On my main location I set most photos to publicly visible which works fine. But on the hubloq, most photos are only visible if I'm logged in, apparently the permissions aren't equivalent. How do I fix this (or where do I even begin)?

Thanks,

Beni

@Oliver Is this some hub configuration you did on purpose?
Beni Grind
  
@Mike Macgirvin I think that's exactly what happened. Actually, one of the pictures does show and now that you mention it, I realize that this might be the one I manually uploaded first.

Is there an easier fix than manually changing the permissions on each file?
Mike Macgirvin
  
Alas no. I should have fixed it going forward, but we may need Oliver to perform some SQL magic on the others. This is fairly easy if all your photos/files are otherwise public (update photos set allow_cid = '' where allow_cid != '' and uid = $your_channel_id). Repeat for the attach table. This will even work if you sometimes restrict access to a privacy group.  Otherwise (if you have some photos set to be visible to specific people or channels) one by one may be the best way; just to ensure you don't leak something that's supposed to be private.
Beni Grind
  
I'll just leave it that way, it's not that important. As long as I have a backup, I can still change this if my server fails.
Beni Grind
  
Sadly we're on the plane home and our bicycles are stores somewhere below us in a box.

Keflavik Intl. Airport is a huge mess these days, not the cozy little airport it used to be, where people sleep on the floor. Guess we wont come back to #Iceland in Summer - at least until they're done ruining their environment and taking down tourism along with it.

See you soon, Iceland.

@Hubzilla Support Forum+ Ok, this is probably another case of me being unable to spot the obvious, but I noticed that some people have a "events" tab on their profile and can't figure out how I would get this tab, too. It doesn't show on my profile.

Thanks,

Beni

Don't worry... You do have an events tab...
The tab is only visible to visitors though since they can't access the events through the panel menu...
Andrew Manning
  
I can see your events tab on your channel page, but I cannot see such a tab on my own channel. I believe this is intentional. The observer probably only sees the events they have permission to see, which is a subset of what events you see on your https://grindcore.ch/events view.
Beni Grind
  
Ah ok, thank you. I expected the tabs to be the same.
Beni Grind
  
Finally my #FreeBSD server does regular automatic #ZFS snapshots and smartmontools monitor my disc drives. I wanted to get this sorted for a long time. Now my cloud and my #hubzilla site are just a tiny bit securer. I still lack proper backups though, I really should get that fixed too....

We're in Reykjavík and tomorrow is our last day in #Iceland. We have to pack our bikes for the flight and write the last few postcards. #cyclingiceland

The hotel which runs the camp site we're staying at blocks http://couchsurfing.com. Luckily it's only a DNS block and easy to get around. Still, I don't think that's playing fair even though it's their wifi and they offer it for free.

Laugargerðisskóli: Usually a school building. During the summer holidays (1st June - 15th August) it's used as a hotel and its surroundings as a camp site.

A warm pool is still one of the best ways to relax after cycling. Today we had this nice warm pool all to ourselves...

What's wrong wit these tourists who travel in motorized tin cans? They seem to think we're some kind of attraction that doesn't talk. They keep taking pictures of us. Today one of them was literally standing two meters from us shooting away without asking or even saying a word. She was very astonished when her "attraction" suddenly started talking - quite angrily for that matter. Apparently she was fascinated by us travelling on bicycles.... So what's wrong with talking to us and saying so???

I wonder whether our bikes have a 4x4 drive, we don't even have four wheels...

Image/photo

That's what you'd need the 4x4 jeep for....

Image/photo

but apparently a 2-feet drive works as well even though it's quite slow.

The locals wondering what these weird tourists on two wheels are up to.

Even though crossing rivers was some work, the scenery was beautiful.

Crossing the last river.

Here are more random pictures from our #cyclingiceland trip...

More fog...
Image/photo

We've seen more rainbows in the past few weeks than ever. But as nice as they are, they still mean more rain...
Image/photo

... and with more rain Icelandic gravel roads sometimes become quite messy.
Image/photo

Finally the rain stopped and the sun came back.
Image/photo

We stopped at a camp site with its own pool which was always crammed with people. Thanks to a local we also knew about the hot pool just a few meters off but well hidden from curious campers.
Image/photo

More nice weather at the pool.

My bike setup: notice the most important device, the specially made anti-sheep bell.

That's exactly the kind of restaurant I need after 85 km of cycling on a gravel road with strong headwinds... #cyclingiceland

After ~15'000 km my carbon belt finally gave in to Icelandic mountain roads. If I hadn't tried to cross that stream on the bike and pushed it instead it probably would still be in one piece (technically it still is...).

The bigger issue is finding replacement belts in rural Iceland. Best of luck.
Beni Grind
  
I brought a spare one. I knew it would eventually break, That's the downside compared to a chain, where a few spare links are enough.
