UK net surveillance law:

This will involve ISPs keeping a record of what websites - but not specific web pages - and chat apps their customers made use of and when.

This is at the ISP level. So if your browser is always connecting to a proxy or TOR node, you might as well be connecting to a kiddie porn site. Your packets will still have a src and dst and you'll be put on the 'subversive' list either way.

This is one reason I find I2P interesting. It's a network on the network, made to be anonymous. Services and websites are primarily hosted within the network, not via exit nodes like with Tor. It would be cool to make Hubzilla work over I2P. Especially the distributed nature of Hubzilla, its nomadic identities and that it's already designed not to rely on DNS are factors that I think will make it fit well.

Looks like the ability to drag/drop links into posts broke. (Sigh). Anyway saving this to bookmark... it's mesh networking with a much lower barrier to entry than the usual suspects.

Just like Twitter, Rumble allows you to share message, however Rumble does not rely on any infrastructure network to work, not even the Internet. It is entirely off-the-grid and pretty unique too! Whenever Rumble is running, it tries to connect to other rumble devices around using Bluetooth or Wifi. Rumble stores every message on a local database a...

¡Quién dijo que lograr otra Dolly era fácil!:
Pues eso, la clonación no me resulta sencillo. He creado una cuenta en otro pod. Desde este he creado un nuevo canal y lo he enlazado con el del servidor nuevo. Luego en ajustes he ido a complementos y he activado la publicación cruzada entre canales.

La copia del canal en el otro lo ha podido ser, parece que algún problema habrá. Como ambos perfiles se siguen, además, pues puedo ver la publicación de uno en otro pero no lo que publique aquí directamente en el perfil del otro. No obstante, algo debo haber hecho bien ya que se ha comentado una publicación en el servidor hubzilla.nl pero la notificación por correo me la ha mandado lastauth.com

Cambiando de tema, en complementos de lastauth.com aparece la positividad de conectar con pump.io. Pensaba que sería una conexión similar al que se tiene con Diaspora. No es así, es más bien como la conexión con GNUSocial.


So this (GNU-Social) person is lamenting about how difficult and basically how awful Hubzilla's 'clone' feature is.

He describes how he went to a second server, created an account, created a new channel and then tried to use a plugin (I'm assuming redred) to connect the two channels together. And this resulted in a mixup of some of the notification emails and it didn't produce a clone like he thought it would. There's also some ranting about the pump.io post plugin and how it was expected there would be be full two-way federation with pump.io. All in all not a happy camper.

Victor is a nice guy, he just need to better understand how things work, in any case he is certainly not one of those who always complains and  speaks ill of the project.

Happy Thanksgiving from Australia

version 3.0 released.

Though I will also point out that there are borders in the land of zot. #notgotzot indicates a perennial outsider who lacks the desire to assimilate into the community. It is also occasionally used to describe those who actually blame the community or the software we use for their own personal failures and inability to feel joy and/or deeply connect with others.

These are also sometimes referred to as Dementors (which was borrowed from Harry Potter). They are people whose entire purpose in life is to suck the life and joy out of the community and hence they are the perpetual enemies/nemeses of those who have #gotzot.

#NoSuchProject 3.0 is presumably upwardly compatible with #NoSuchProject 1.0. Please see #NoSuchDocument for additional information.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.



Communities aren't that difficult to understand, conceptually. It's just a group of people with something in common. One distinguishing feature is that if somebody outside the community attacks a member, they stand united. When somebody attacks one of my friends, I can and I will and I often do take them down.

If an outsider attacks a community member and the rest of the community stands around watching and refuses to get involved; this sense of safety is lost. it can no longer be called a community. It does not stand for anything. There is nothing united about it. It is no longer safe to be yourself amongst others.

It is now time to dissolve the bands which have connected.

Trying to come up with a mechanism/strategy for syncing wikis to clones. I thought initially that we could use git to do this, but I'm now not so certain. Providing git server integration might be a tough nut to crack and there might be an ssh dependency for auth. I now think the only sensible and lowest bandwidth approach is to provide an info packet with the changed file contents and the checkin message and then do a git commit on the clone server.

How would you ensure consistency over time?
Andrew Manning
  
I was hoping to eventually get git working under the hood to do cloning like you suggest and provide git repo hosting like GitLab and all the fun possibilities that capability would provide, but I've been too lazy to really try to figure it out. The wiki download feature was my lame stopgap to keep the wiki data "liberated" in the meantime.

That looks pretty intense - we get water flow like that down near my house in the desert when it rains hard, it has drowned a few idiots over the years who decided to try to cross when it was too high.  Take your time and if you don't know for sure don't risk it.

OLD DUD was bringing a load of wool into Mittagong with his bullock team when one of the first cars ever to use Wombeyan Caves Road hurtled around a blind corner near the Bullio Tunnel and ploughed right into the bullock team. It was carnage.

Old Dud was thrown into the gutter, his cattle dog was badly hurt and the two lead bullocks were lying on the ground with broken legs.

Old Dud survived and a few months later his insurance claim found its way to the Berrima Courthouse.

"I can't understand why you're claiming damages for injuries suffered," said the solicitor for the insurance company.

"Is that correct?"

"Yes Sir," said Old Dud.

"But you claim you were injured in the accident," the solicitor went on, "and yet I have here a signed statement from the police officer who attended the accident. He says that when he asked you if you were hurt, you said and I quote?. 'I've never felt better in my life.' Is that correct?"

"Well yes," said Dudley, "but you see............"

The slick city solicitor cut him off.

"A simple yes or no will do."

Old Dud's solicitor sprang to his feet. "Your Honour, it may assist the Court if you allow my client to explain the circumstances in which he made that statement to the police officer."

"Proceed then," said the Judge.

"Well," said Old Dud, "it was like this. After the accident, two of me bullocks were thrashing about with broken legs, the dog was howling with pain and I was lying in the gutter, not knowing what hit me. Then I hear a siren and this Copper appears, takes one look at the dog, pulls out his gun and shoots it. Then he sees the two bullocks with broken legs and shoots them too. Then he comes over to me in the gutter and says how are you feeling, mate?"

Old Dud just shook his head. "Well what did you expect me to say?"
