Hubzilla Dreams

 Copperopolis, California,  
I had a dream last night that all of the Hubzilla people I know were hanging out.

It was night and we were gathered around a wood shed and @Mike Macgirvin  was telling us to burn the shed down, but it started raining so I poured lighter fluid all over it and there was a small explosion. A neighbor started complaining.

I have no idea what it all meant.
Mike Macgirvin
  
I thought you were all coming to els Mussols...


Can we blow up your woodshed?
elmussol
  
No. Is that a deal breaker?
Mike Macgirvin
  
I'm OK with that, but Adam's the pyro. I think if you set him in the corner with something else he can burn he might quiet down.

 Copperopolis, California,  
I am signing up for a Linode Account. Does anyone want to give me a promo-code?

Thank God we have people watching out for us, otherwise we would have complete privacy, which is obviously too dangerous:

comment from someone at work: "presumably they'll also ban meeting together in groups larger than 2 as well"

Two or more makes it a conspiracy, right?

Do any of you Germans out there have a good Sauerkraut recipe you would mind sharing?
Mike Macgirvin
  
Don't know that I've ever made pure or traditional sauerkraut but a quick look online says 'cabbage, salt, and time' so I stand by my original comment.
Adam Robertson
  
Apparently Sauerkraut recipes are handed down through families for generations (..so said my German friend Martina, whom I am no longer in contact with).

The differences are varied, with things like carroway seeds, apples, onions,  carrots,  wine, etc.

I really like the Hubzilla layout in mobile-view, but for desktop I preferred the RedMatrix layout.

Is there a theme or plugin that can revert me back to RedMatrix-style desktop view?

@Hubzilla Support Forum+

If I go to the directory, I do not see anything. If I try to search for a channel, I get a red indicator/pop-up thingamajig that says "Channel Discovery Failed"

Has anyone had a similar issue? Know if a fix?

I don't get the pop-up, but I also get no results. The channel suggestions link also comes up with no results.
Ah, I see the directory url selected goes to a dead site. I guess I will try others until I find something that is working.

Edit: and having found one, I see things again.
Adam Robertson
  
where did you change the directory url?
Marshall Sutherland
  
Admin -> Site, then about halfway down, right before the Registration section. (in v2.2, anyway)

Atom Editor

 Copperopolis, California,  
..still loving Atom Editor. It is amazingly customizable, and I just installed a settings-sync package that uses github to backup all of my settings and add-ons and lets me sync that to wherever else I use atom.

Now my home computer and work computer have identical settings at all times.

#^sync-settings
Synchronize package settings, keymap and installed packages in atom using a Github Gist

I am seeing @Thomas Willinghams comments on posts, but am not able to connect because it says "protocol disabled"  ..looks like he is on Friendica. Is there a plugin for connecting with Friendica?

@Hubzilla

I didn't have diaspora plugin enabled. I don't know anyone on diaspora so I didn't figure that I needed it on.
Carolus Rex
  
Ah! I thought it was system wide, but you are right, it's a personal setting.
giac hellvecio
  
you need of course the admin action ( for the plugin in the hub)  but is also a personal setting, if you don't have the plugin in the hub you can not connect with friendica, but, when you have,  you need to look in your personal setting, 2 steps, one with the admin, and more one with you.

Thinking outside of the box

 Copperopolis, California,  
My son has started doing word-problems, so I gave him the old one:

A man needs to bring a wolf, a goat, and a basket of cabbages across the river.
The boat is tiny and can only carry one passenger at a time.
If he leaves the wolf and the goat alone together, the wolf will eat the goat.
If he leaves the goat and the cabbages alone together, the goat will eat the cabbage.
How can he bring all three safely across the river?


There is a logical way to do it, but my son came up with an unorthodox answer:

Feed the cabbages to the goat, then feed the goat to the wolf. Then carry the wolf across.

A sort of "Martioska". Or "food chain, in practice".

I guess it is safe for the man... :-)

Personal Info

 Copperopolis, California,  
Here is something interesting:  In 2004 I deleted the limted Facebook account I had (hardly ever used it). I do not use Twitter or Linkdn or similar sites.

The only accurate results that turn up when searching my name on Google or sites like whitepages.com and mylife.com  are showing me living in a town where I happened to have an address in....2004....


My wife, who deleted her Facebook account a couple of years ago, has slightly better search results for her name, but the info is ....two years outdated.

testing forum ...does this show up?
Adam Robertson
  
since the Web Designers Guild channel was deleted when I removed my RebMatrix hub...will the Forum still work?
Mike Macgirvin
  
It should, though you might want to visit '/locs' and update the primary location. This may have already happened and the update just hasn't made it here yet; in which case - nevermind. It'll catch up in the next day or so.

Palemoon Browser

 Copperopolis, California,  
After reading about Firefox deprecating XUL  add-ons by the end of the year,  I have switched to Palemoon Browser....and I love it!

There is one add-on in particular that I user regularly: Lazarus Form Recovery, where you can right-click and recover a form you just filled out but lost for whatever reason (browser crash, form did not save properly)

Does anyone else use Palemoon?
Mike Macgirvin
  
That means they're probably deprecating xul. Ah the stories I could tell....

Comanche is loosely based on xul; the premise being that you should be able to design a richly formatted webpage using a text description and supply the content at runtime.

I use WaterFox, only for special search options from the URL bar. Hoping Brave will get around to that eventually.

Ok. I finally took the time to get Hubzilla installed after my RedMatrix finally conked out.

Does this work?
Adam Robertson
  
Great. The install went well...importing channels from Red Matrix did not work, but I dont mind starting fresh
Andrew Manning
  
I did the same thing and haven't missed my original channel at all. Welcome to Hubzilla.
mrjive
  
In my recent personal hubzilla disater I registered a new account at hub.vilarejo.pro.br. I tried to import my channel but it didn't work, and didn't had the chance to set up another one, so I found myself with an ccount and no channels :P
