Renunciation of citizenship - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The United States requires that an individual go in person to a U.S. embassy or consulate outside the U.S. and sign before a consular officer an oath or affirmation that he intends to renounce his citizenship, although exceptions are legally permitted in times of war and under special circumstances.[21] [22]During the expatriation procedure, the individual must complete several documents and demonstrate in an interview with a consular officer that the renunciation is voluntary and intentional. Depending on the embassy or consulate, the individual is often required to appear in person two times and conduct two separate interviews with consular officers over the course of several months.

[23]There were between 222 and 235 renunciants in 2008, between 731 and 743 in 2009, and about 1485 in 2010;[24] [25]In 2011, there were 1781 renunciants. [26]Already in the first quarter of 2013, there were 679 renunciants. [27]

[28]Formal confirmation of the loss of U.S. citizenship is provided by the Certificate of Loss of Nationality and is received by the renunciant a number of months later. Renunciation of U.S. citizenship was free until July 2010, at which time a fee of $450 was established. [29]Although many countries require citizenship of another nation before allowing renunciation, the United States does not and an individual may legally renounce U.S. citizenship and become stateless. Nonetheless, the United States Department of State warns renunciants that, unless they already possess a foreign nationality or are assured of acquiring another nationality shortly after completing their renunciation, they would become stateless and without the protection of any government.

[30]In one case, Vincent Cate, an encryption expert living in Anguilla, chose to renounce his US citizenship to avoid the possibility of violating US laws that may prohibit US citizens from "exporting" encryption software.[31]

Here's another Red task for somebody who gets bored watching Law and Order or CSI....

Move module specific (position and layout related) CSS from style.css to view/tpl/css/mod_{module}.css

Layout stuff that appears in more than one module/webpage should go to view/tpl/css/common.css where we can share it (change the code to include this file using head_include_css() ). This would include all the "wall-" and thread viewing stuff

view/theme/redbasic/css/style.css should then contain only colours and shadows and icons and stuff that is "decoration". It should only be a few hundred lines at most, not thousands.


If you take this on, ping us back with progress updates once in a while. For instance I'm not certain if the bbcode optimisation I mentioned the other day is being worked on or not.

The Red Matrix
This is what we believe:

If we want to tell the world what we ate for breakfast (and make it public and open) we will do so.

If we want to tell our close family and friends how our date went last night,

  • it is none of Mark Zuckerberg's business

  • Larry Page should not know where we were and for how long and how much money was spent and on what

  • The NSA and every other government agency needs to show us a court order

Lost a few hours re-installing my dev/test server; due to some glitch with Dreamhost that caused it to run like a snail. (5 minutes to load every page). Been like that for a few weeks now - which makes it a bit difficult to do development and fix bugs. Much zippier now.

did you just change hosting or did something to optimize it on dreamhost? I experience some slowness in DH hosting too...
Mr. X

I've got 30-40 domains under one account. DH has its issues, but I've wanted all along for Friendica (and Red) to be useable under "normal web hosting" that could support a WordPress blog. It does work. Only one domain had issues; and I tried a new DB to see if it was MySQL related, but it followed the domain name. So I just used another domain name. Weird.

Then after I got the speed back to normal I set up a fresh DB to clean up some mistakes I made early on in development. It's too bad because the original DB was directly migrated from "Mistpark" 3 years ago when I started this project.

History of Australia (1788–1850) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The history of Australia from 1788–1850 covers the early colonies period of Australia's history, from the arrival of the First Fleet of British ships at Sydney to establish the penal colony of New South Wales in 1788 to the European exploration of the continent and establishment of other colonies and the beginnings of autonomous democratic govern...


Incredibly ignorant. The first colonists arrived on this continent over 50,000 years ago. They figured out how to survive 10,000 year droughts, ice ages, and global warming that killed off most of their original food sources and later sank 25% of the continent. They created decentralised yet mostly cooperative communities that thrived when the going got tough. We could learn a thing or two from them.

Red clone sync works the first time. Yay. So we should be replicating any changes you make to your channel settings or connection settings or addon preferences to all your nomadic instances. Will need to return to this in the future and separate out generic settings from client-specific settings and make it Red-agnostic, but for now...

Moving onward. :homebrew

Thank You!
A big thank you to all those who have contributed to the Red Matrix fund drive. We've now reached 1.11% of our goal. We would like to do a bit better than that, however. Call a friend. Tell them (show them) how the Red Matrix and Zot can change the way they use the internet and help bring freedom and privacy back to their lives.

There are a lot of decentralised social projects - and most people only see these as something to replace Facebook. We're a bit more ambitious than that. We're trying to create a suite of interactive web services and independent websites which make use of distributed internet-scale authentication and privacy - and provide single sign-on across the matrix. Communications and social networking are a very small piece of that puzzle. Important yes, but we're not trying to replace Facebook. What we're doing is a bit (actually a lot) harder. We're trying to fix the server side of the internet and open it up to new types of services and new modes of interaction (social and otherwise), and without all the damn spyware and abuses of "big data". We're providing a level playing field where large websites have no apparent advantages over small websites - even those running on plug devices. All can provide rich interactive services. You don't need a large "user database". The matrix *is* your user database, and what you can see about a particular member is completely determined by what they wish to share with you. Being social is built into this network - and nobody controls it or has access to all the data.

We could use a bit (actually a lot) more help.

if its the same app I'm thiinking of
it worked here up until a few months ago .. and apart from the occasional crash when the network dropped out it worked quite nicely..

but now it just crashes as soon as I try to log in.
I don't see what might have changed

pidgin still connects to the api .. but not with the same plugin as before (still a "twitter" plugin but a different one)

.. strange.

saw an error about xml parsing briefly appear a couple of times in pidgin .. possible clue .. but don't see anything obvious in the feeds

We’ve been working on decentralised and federated social networking for over three years. First with “Friendica” and now with “the Red Matrix”. The Red Matrix (aka “Red”) goes beyond whatever you think about online communication systems and social networking. It basically redefines how we interact with the web itself. We’ve taken so...

We fully support the American intelligence system and actively participate in giving them information freely - so that they can track, monitor, and analyse the online activities of you and your friends; regardless of your nationality or background.

And we don't give a shit about your freedom and privacy.
