Java users: manual intervention required before upgrade
To circumvent a conflicting files issue, manual intervention is required only if package java-common is installed. This can be checked with the following command:
$ pacman -Q java-common
java-common ...

If so, please run the following prior to upgrading:
# archlinux-java unset
# pacman -Sydd --asdeps java-runtime-common
:: java-runtime-common and java-common are in conflict. Remove java-common? [y/N] y
# archlinux-java fix

You can then go ahead and upgrade:
# pacman -Su

Please note that new package java-runtime-common does not use nor support forcing JAVA_HOME as former package java-common did. See the Java wiki page for more info.

Welcome to the free web.

GNU-Social - for those who prefer Twitter-like interaction

GNU-MediaGoblin - media publishing
redmatrix - web publishing with decentralised privacy (and social networking)
Friendica - the superglue of the free social web

The goal of course is for all of these projects to all move more toward the center. Overlap is good. That's where we can share something on one service with somebody on a completely different service. One day it is hoped we won't even be able to distinguish a boundary between services. It will just be the free web.

The 3.4 release is planned for 1st April 2015. Belive me.

A new branch "develop" has been created.
All new work will be done in this branch, while "master" will keep only stable and hot-fixs.

Read more about git flow.

Contributors should read the Code improvement recommendation

Updated @Owncloud to 7.0.2
Everything looks ok.
I used the same procedure as last upgrade:
- copy the webserver folder with owncloud, as backup
- delete all files and folders except "config" , "apps" and "data"
- extract new owncloud somewere
- copy new files into webserver folder
- cd into webfolder
- run "php console.php upgrade"

oh, and
- panic a little moment when you realize you have deleted the roundcube folder (which was a subfolder of owncloud webserver folder)
- copy it back from backup copy

now I have to update the 3th party apps I'm using..

Don't worry: updating friendica from 3.2 to the next 3.3 should be mooooore easy! :-P

User python venv

Just an idea, and I'm sure someone already did it.
Create a #virtualenv in user home and add venv's activate in ~/.bash_profile.

This way I can "pip install" what I want without touching the system.
And if (or "when") I install something wrong, I can delete the venv and recreate it..

That's not fair.


Bisognerebbe capire: stiamo parlando di cose imparate per unità di tempo o di cose imparate totali per tempo trascorso?

E in ogni caso la curva di vi non è accurata, quella vera è molto più analitica (anche se quella è una buona approssimazione, se vogliamo usare segmenti).

"Easy read" bookmarklet

We live in fascinating times.
The technology is everyday better, faster (harder...).
This days you can buy beautiful computer monitors with magnificent resolutions. I'm quite in the "normal" range, with a 1920x1200 monitor.

Unfortunately, there are people who don't like changes and keep their 1024x720 CRT monitor to write their blogs and websites. Which have usually a width of "100%". "Hey, it looks good here!"

Thanks to the technology, I have a fantastic chair with wheels, so I can roll right to left while I'm reading this sites. But I'm lazy. So I wrote a piece of javascript which adds some css to the current page to make it more comfortable to read.
It's tailored on TdWTF, but it works on many other sites.

Friendica and Lighttpd

@Friendica Developers

If you are using Friendica on Lighttpd, add this line to your lighttpd config file:

server.reject-expect-100-with-417 = "disable"

There are problems with curl and lighttpd without this line that prevent ~friendica ~friendica to work properly

I've added the string to lighttpd sample config, modified mods/readme.txt, setted the internal push server as default after instalation, found why installation was without css (as reported by @Hauke Altmann when he fixed the vagrant file), fixed a remaining call to $.curCSS() in quattro theme and removed all email templates in view/[lang]/ folders (again).
