Hey all!

If you're still wondering about places to go to replace G+, I wanted to suggest coming over to a Friendica system, which is in the Fediverse (it includes several different social platforms).

I've got a node here: https://social.isurf.ca

Drop me a line if you have any questions. Otherwise, hope to see you there!

And I am apparently pulling my G+ posts! lol...

Ah well...

Shared it for effect. :-)

Failure on so many levels. So sad.



 

Chat / XMPP support and testing


@iSurf Support

Hi all,

I'm not sure if you know or not, but Friendica has a built-in chat option that we pretty much have to leave disabled, as it has some bugs that conflict with the two most common & usable themes. It also relies on a javascript chat app that is no longer developed.

That said, we do have an integrated chat system on the iSurf Social platform, which you can use with either a standard XMPP client (such as Pidgin, gajim, or Conversations for Android or Xabber for Android - there's IOS apps too), or if you'd like to test/try out a web-based chat client here, which I'm going to have some discussion with the developers on replacing the old unsupported client with, please give chat.social.isurf.ca a try. It's a rediculously simple setup, nothing fancy. You use your social.isurf.ca username & password to login in to it.

If you would like any further information on how to use any of the other clients I mentioned, please let me know!

I should follow up quickly on this... I did mis-speak in my original post as I was confusing one chat addon with another. Friendica's 'XMPP' addon uses an old version of converse, while there is another XMPP chat addon that uses jappix mini.

I have been toying with updating the converse code, and it looks like recent versions of converse have some pretty ugly UI bugs in them - at least with the browsers I'm testing with. I'm going to go back a few releases for testing today, see if I can't get a usable solution in place for the addon.

Pluspora also operates an XMPP server.



 

Good for Mr. Assman!


Good for this guy. I'll leave my comments just at that.

Didn't Dave Letterman have this guy's Dad (?) on his show all the time? I think his name was Dick Assman and he was from the Canadian prairies. Gotta be the same family.

haha! He's got his own Wikipedia page, and it mentions Dave.

#assmanpower ?

Lol. I did not know that!!
