Hey, I got an email notification for this one. Just FYI.

Perfect, thanks for the clarification John!

@Adam Clark I didn't receive this notification, not on Friendica and not in email. I did however find your message about the server move in the spam folder, so that's what may have happened with the other one as well.

Hey @Gidi Kroon - I see no email was attempted toward you for this post. Do you have email notifications on for being tagged in posts in your Notification settings?

The other email about the server move was a bulk email to all, so a bit of a different function compared to the tags in this post.

Oh, and one further item - does your 'spam' or 'Junk' email get marked up enough to know why it wound up as such?

Misfiling stuff as junk & spam is super annoying to poor little mail admins (like myself) who have their SPF, DKIM and DMARC stuff all going and are running super clean servers.

Twidere malfunctioning - maybe non-coincidentally?


This is a bit annoying, as I haven't been using Twidere for very long, but very quickly have grown to like it, as I have been able to use it for my main Twitter accounts as well as Friendica. It seems to be a great reader.

A couple of days ago, in fact, I think I only noticed it yesterday morning, the main timeline stopped updating on all of my accounts - which seemed extremely strange as they're on different platforms. So, my suspicion was was Twidere, my phone, etc.

If you look at Twidere's latest tweets, it looks like they're shutting the project down - except, that on it's own shouldn't break things, should it? They say things may change with the tie-in to Twitter, but not sure how or why this would affect Statusnet connections.

Would love to know if anyone else uses Twidere and if they've noticed the same issues at all.

@Adam Clark Clear the cache in the Twidere settings (somewhere in storage settings), close the app, open the app.
This bug is so annoying that I stopped using Twidere.

Yeah, that was one of the first things I did. I have resolved the non-Twitter issues with it by re-installing the app (so much fun, of course!), which of course has meant starting from scratch again. At least with the fresh start, I can see that it's Twitter consumer/API key stuff is what's causing the problem there, and all I need to do is setup the devel stuff at Twitter (eye rolls!), heh.



Goodbye, OpenSUSE, hello again Debian


For the past few years, after getting away from Gentoo on nearly all systems in my house, I settled on OpenSUSE on my primary workstation, partially due to my being familiar with it once prior, and also it appeared that the project had continued heading in a pretty good direction.

After not too long, however, and I think it was the upgrade from the first Leap 42.X to the second, things started to break on the desktop, which I was surprised and a little disheartened with. I don't have the time for narrowing down bugs on my desktop that I used to have.

I put up with it for a couple of years, wound up on the 15.X Leap series, wound up using their separate KDE repository, etc, and things never went back to just normal stability, something was always broken, some revisions of this or that were more or less broken than the last.

I gave up last week, after having several stellar years of Debian on laptops (never mind the server reliability), I decided I'd put it back on the desktop as well.

Sure feels a lot snappier than OpenSUSE did, too, but it's early days.

I concur, had a problem with Debian on my RPS, switched to Devuan and problem gone.

You know, I had thought about that not too long ago and completely forgot....

The only problem is, I feel like I *must* continue to get familiar with systemd, much as I dislike it.

I see. You made a good choice with Debian though.



So disappointed with the status quo here in Canada. An in awe with the popular vote. Why do so many Canadians think we're in a 2 party system? Fuuuuuuuuck...

Okay, I mean the same. :-) Here are not just #SPD and #CDU/#CSU but also #DieLinke and #Gruene and #FDP. Not that most of them are any better than the 2 famous, but they are there in the #bundestag .

We definitely have better parties here. The petro-state is sure doing a great job of keeping everyone dumb here.
