To those who have ever contributed to Friendica and have somehow put up with the fact that it's quite a dynamic project and it may not be as pretty as "that other project" and above all because there is no master plan - we're just makng it up as we go...

thank you.

I think it's pretty awesome and I couldn't have done it without you.

You know you're Australian if ...* You believe that stubbies can be either drunk or worn.
* You think it was normal to have a leader called Kevin.
* You've made a bong out of your garden hose rather than use it for something illegal, such as watering the garden.
* You're liable to burst out laughing whenever you hear of Americans "rooting" for something.
* You understand that the phrase 'a group of women wearing black thongs' refers to footwear and may be less alluring than it sounds.
* You pronounce Melbourne as 'Mel-bin'.
You believe the 'l' in the word 'Australia' is optional.
* You believe it makes perfect sense for a nation to decorate its highways with large fibreglass bananas, prawns and sheep.
* You call your best friend 'a total bastard' but someone you really, truly despise is 'a bit of a bastard'.
* You think 'Yackandandah' is a perfectly reasonable name for a place.
* You're secretly proud of our killer wildlife.
* You believe it makes sense for a country to have a $1 coin that's twice as big as its $2 coin.
* You instinctively understand that 'Wagga Wagga' can be abbreviated to 'Wagga' but that 'Woy Woy' can't ever be called 'Woy'.
* You believe that  salty Yeast Extract makes a good breakfast spread. You've also squeezed it through Vita Wheats to make little Vegemite worms.
* You believe all famous Kiwis are actually Australian, until they stuff up, at which point they again become Kiwis.
* You expect beetroot with your Hamburger... Of course!
* You know that certain words must, by law, be shouted out during any rendition of the Angels' song 'Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again', and "Living next door to Alice".
* You believe that the confectionery known as the Wagon Wheel has become smaller with every passing year.
* You wear ugg boots outside the house.

* You believe that the more you shorten someone's name the more you like them.
* Whatever your linguistic skills, you find yourself able to order takeaway fluently in every Asian language.
* You understand that 'excuse me' can sound rude,
While 'scuse me' is always polite.
* You know what it's like to swallow a fly, on occasion via your nose.
* You know it's not summer until the steering wheel is too hot to handle and a seat belt buckle becomes a pretty good branding iron.
* Your biggest family argument over the summer concerned the rules of beach cricket.
* You shake your head in horror when companies try to market what they call 'Anzac cookies'.
* You still think of Kylie as 'that girl off Neighbours'.
* When working at a bar, you understand that male customers will feel the need to offer an excuse whenever they order low-alcohol beer.
* You know how to abbreviate every word, all of which usually end in ''-o'':
arvo, combo, garbo, kero, lezzo, metho, milko, muso, rego, servo, smoko, speedo, righto, goodo etc.
* You know that there is a universal place called "woop woop" located in the middle of nowhere...no matter where you actually are.
* You know that none of us actually drink Fosters beer, because it tastes like shit. But we let the world think we do. Because we can.
* You have some time in your life slept with Aeroguard on in the summer. Maybe even as perfume.
* You've only ever used the words - tops, ripper, sick, mad, rad, sweet
- to mean good. And then you place 'bloody' in front of it when you REALLY mean it.
* You know that the barbecue is a political arena; the person holding the tongs is always the boss and usually a man. And the women make the Salad.
* You say 'no worries' quite often, whether you realise it or not.
* You understand what no wucking furries means.
* You've drank your tea/coffee/milo through a Tim Tam.
* You own a Bond's chesty. In several different colours.
* You know that roo meat tastes pretty good, But not as good as barra. Or a meat pie.
* You know that some people pronounce Australia like "Straya" and that's ok.
* And you will immediately forward this list to other Australians, here and overseas, realising that only they will understand.

The local market buys 2 six packs of Fosters a year just in case tourists that are passing through want some. Last year one of them didn't sell before it's "use by" date so I picked it up for a dollar.

Used it for cooking.

Marmite? - don't go there. ;-)

Just received what I believe is perhaps the first ever cross-social-network private mail message - from Diaspora to Friendica. Cross fingers, should have it flowing both directions in a few days.

No it isn't celebrated here. I used to do a full Thanksgiving spread, but it soon devolved into microwaving a turkey leg and eating it alone. At that point I gave up.

Soliciting ideas for how to seed the Friendica friend suggestions when the person involved has zero friends and/or for whatever reason (such as privacy) there is no available social graph. The solution cannot eliminate any reasonable expectations of privacy.

My initial thought is to provide a special poco stream on each site which lists people who are open to unsolicited friendship requests - this would be a privacy setting they would opt-in to.

Then if the friend suggestor returned zilch, we could randomly select a few of these people from a) known public sites and/or b) from any site this site has connected with in some way and/or c) this site. The latter would make this available for "disconnected" social organisations whereby the results could come from their own userbase.

@norv there is a list of public ~friendica ~friendica nodes http://dir.friendica.com/siteinfo that would be the list for (a) I think. (b) would be the list of servers any profile on the server where you have the profile on has a connection to and (c) would be the very server you have a profile on.

Then going through this list of servers and the list of volunteers on this servers - if I got @Mike right ;-)

My only comments on the shitfight that erupted yesterday on D* are this:

There's a lot of pressure from a lot of people who want everything and they want it now. This relentless pressure to be all things to all people has already cost one life.

If you do not like a particular free web project, there are many others to choose from, with different licenses, governance, and philosophy. I believe I can speak for the Diaspora team in saying that we would all be better off (you included) if you invested your energy helping a project you believe in, rather than hindering one that you don't. Either way, there's a lot of work ahead for all of us.

First test of Friendica forums a few moments ago - bloody thing worked.
Still a few little details to nail down before I check it in.

Here are the instructions...

Create a Friendica community page just like you would today and/or connect to an existing community group.

When you want to post to members of one of your groups, you simply @-tag the group in your post.

Everything else just happens.

I've also connected to the forum. It's obvious there's a problem, because webfinger was completely failing earlier, but I can't troubleshoot it at the moment because for me its currently working exactly as it should.

Brewing day. Relax, have a #homebrew

Believe I have worked out all the important details of Friendica topical #groups and #forums. This will work nicely - and also should be available to federated networks like Diaspora and StatusNet. They won't have to do a thing, and they'll get Friendica groups that they can subscribe to and interact with, just like us. Now I just have to roll up my sleeves and get it into the code. It will be at least a week and hopefully less than four - depending on what other issues might arise in the meantime. This will change the 2.4 roadmap a bit, but I think in overall importance this takes priority over Diaspora private inboxes and #zot.

Since this comes up with every network that Friendica connects to, I'd like to clarify Friendica's privacy model.

In the Friendica model, every person has the right to decide if they will or should

a) send posts

and/or

b) receive posts

to/from the other person in each "relationship".

By "send posts" we're actually "sending a registered letter".

---

The confusion arises with "public" posts, or those written to "everybody".  In the Friendica model, we will post this message on your wall where anybody can see it, we will provide it in a feed where others can view it remotely, and we will also "send a registered letter" to anybody with whom you have given permission to send posts.

However (and here is where we have the confusion), we do not "send a registered letter" to anybody to whom you have not approved as somebody you wish to "send posts", regardless of whether the message is publicly visible. You have not given us permission to send specifically to this person.

But some other networks do - so perhaps we need to provide a setting for each account and allow you to choose whether public posts should also be individually delivered to all your stalkers.

This latter behaviour is necessary on Diaspora because your profile wall is recreated on every site and without it you would have a wall that is empty of posts on everything but your own site. (Although it may still be empty if you don't have an existing relationship with anybody else on that site). I find this a bit confusing.

This behaviour is not necessary in Friendica as you have one profile wall.

The question is how best to resolve the incompatibilities in the different models.

Discussion welcome.

Connect to your own profile on Facebook and prevent everybody "except friends" from seeing your Facebook wall posts.

If you link both walls together, your Facebook wall posts will appear on your Friendica wall - which can also be blocked to everybody "except your friends".

But - even if your Facebook wall is blocked to just your friends *and* your Friendica wall is blocked to just your friends, your Diaspora wall is wide open and shows the same posts to anybody who wants to see them - and regardless of whether or not they are your friend.

And yes, Facebook posts to Friendica folks will show up as third party posts on Diaspora. Nobody has yet noticed this because most of us have severed the Facebook link.

For those who missed it in another thread Friendica now has a Tumblr post plugin. (You can also follow Tumblr friends and their blogs in your stream via RSS, but this has been available for a while).

I don't know how posterus work, but identica give you a random email @ identi.ca you have to keep secret. What you sent to ths email, is post to your stream.
Don't work adding this email address as a contact because ~friendica ~friendica get contacts detail from email you already have received from that email address... no email from that address results in a error "can't find contact detail" (or something)

If I understand correctly, your "perso-tool" fix this situation, right?

The posterous API doesn't look too difficult, though the documentation is weak. It looks like a variation of the Twitter API, but unfortunately not one we could just extend from the Twitter or statusnet plugins.

You're welcome to drop it in the issues queue as a feature request and we'll see what can be done.

Also wondering if we should provide a "contrib" directory in the addon repository for shell tools and stuff. We're seeing a lot of those that we should at least provide links to.
