The original nomenclature for this type code was...

UBB - Universal Bulletin Board

It's been around for quite some time. Easy and works well. :)

Yeah, we're cookin' with gas nau.



 
remote image test

Yes, this post originated as a test for someone comparing Friendica and Diaspora. It seems no issue if users know BBCode but for those who don't, the theme chosen has an impact. The image icon is for local images while the paperclip icon does not always attach an image url as an embed. I don't have time to do more theme testing at the moment.

#Peertube I am looking for an alternative for livestreaming video from a laptop to the Internet. I know I can do this with YT but can I do it with Peertube?

Out of the blue, I remembered BigBlueButton servers do this. I set-up an experimental BBB server once over a year ago, but turned it off. I found out about that system because they are heavily linked to the open source Moodle online college system. You can run a BBB server as a stand-alone. Depending on the server's set-up you can record the live stream. Because it's designed for MOOC/MOOT's having lots of viewers is a cinch. You can do interactive boardroom stuff with it too.

I've never looked for public servers, but there must be some. Or if you can find a friend at UCLA, you might get access to one. You can try it on the official BBB demo server, https://demo.bigbluebutton.org/, and they have tutorial videos about it too.

We ran a BBB server a couple of years ago. It can be a resource hog but we didn't find many people liked it unfortunately.

Saw some new thing worth mentioning. My local Drupal group found a new thing for remote meetings. They used Google Hangouts in the past and it was pretty lame bandwidth. The new place we're going to meet is on https://appear.in/ which happens Wednesday. Seems like an always open chat room type thing. You get a subdirectory of your selected name that the stream runs in. appear.in/somethingIpicked

If they didn't have a free version, I wouldn't have mentioned it.

We use virtual worlds for meetings. You experience a virtual presence as well as have chat and voice communications. This is far better than 2D meeting platforms and tools IMO. It combines 3D avatar technology with a social experience i.e. social virtual worlds.

O I C. I know that the [matrix] backend system supports VR type live streaming.



Most people use Riot to interact with Matrix instances.

Thanks that is interesting to know about! (I should clarify where am headed with this project.)

I have a virtual world running on an open source multi-user social virtual world server rendered by open source client viewer software. The virtual world has several purposes so moving it to another platform is not an option.

One purpose is to provide access via a URL "looking into" or watching the virtual world without interaction in the virtual world itself. The watcher can observe dynamic interaction with the virtual world by other avatars or non-playing characters via this URL. My mother envisioned a virtual world where people can use 3D to learn about gardening. She is no longer able to use her tablet or laptop so accessing the virtual world with the client application is not an option for her. But, giving her a URL to a livestream of that virtual world will allow her to see her vision in real time and enjoy a unique virtual garden similar to the one near her since she is no longer able to get out and garden in her offline life.

The current plan is to simply vi... show more

Crowdfunding


Where would I find someone to run a gofundme campaign on commission only or on a volunteer basis to raise monies for people in need of financial assistance?

From what I see, the average expert crowdfunding agency charges 1k-3.5k upfront plus 25-35% commission which is not affordable for people who find themselves in need due to circumstances beyond their control like cancer, debillitating disease, accident, layoff, business failures due to political tariffs, etc.

Any ideas? Let's crowdsource some knowledge folks! Possible crowdfund services might be gofundme or justgiving

I should say multiple campaigns since each case will be different. This could be an opportunity for commision only work for someone who works from home that would like to pay it forward yet still earn some income. The idea is to establish this as a service available to people who don't know how to run their own campaign, don't have the energy to do so, or have tried and failed.

You'd probably have to find someone willing to start such a foundation from scratch...

Existing structure exists for the business side of things. What is needed is a team of like-minded individuals who believe in the mission and are crowdfunding experts.

Are there theme developers out there that want to create additional themes for Friendica?

It would be great to have some more crowdpower on that topic. If you are interested, just visit https://github.com/friendica/friendica

This is the house that Trump built... false reports of a man with a gun created a panic leading to senseless and inhuman injuries. #StopTheViolence



 
Sad for a life to end this young - Hillary's younger brother passed on at age 65.

Pride Music in celebration of June Pride in the US



 



 

$18,000? How very small-minded, petty, and frankly stupid, of this woman. Hardly worth the risk. Then again, to have been a state official and refer to FLOTUS as an "ape in heels" already shows how small-minded, churlish and dull-witted she was.



 

It never seems to end since Trump attracts criminals like a magnet. I think we've barely scratched the surface.

Nader has been informing keeping himself out of prison for years - mob ties if I remember correctly but in the case of Trump, foreign government backchannels etc are involved. Looks like he left the country then came back thinking he was in the clear LOL

Yeah, I've commented for years that these GOP people seem stunningly self-confident and cocky. That's never a good idea because it almost always backfires.

There is a reason why they are far-right in the first place. Mental deficiencies of various kinds.
