stable or development?

humans of the abraum, i have a question for you: the initial few weeks i was running the development branch of friendica with little issues. now that we are gathering a small crowd here, i switched to stable at the current release. this puts us 1-3 months behind current developments. what is your opinion about running dev vs. stable? do you/we want to keep it stable, or do we want to accept stuff possibly breaking from time to time in exchange for pulling latest developments faster? or maybe run a second playground instance?
I'm a BLEEDING EDGE ALL THE WAY kinda guy. Just keep backups of the user db etc in case things go up in flames I guess?
I don't care about downtime but don't make hosting unnötig nervig for yourself.

tired: MDMA
wired: MRNA

toxic waste

woke up very early, spent some time preparing reentry to germany (digitale einreiseanmeldung, smooth process, well done rki). also created a new facebook account 2 days ago to let more people around me know about the fediverse. instant feeling: urgh. the level of toxicity(?) in/under almost all content they show me over there is just astounding. i have not missed that at all during the last few months. bleeeeerrrgh. that monster needs to be taken down.

mobile clients

people on our instance, you can use a number of mobile clients for ios (amaroq or b4x) or android (see faq at to make mobile use more streamlined!
@Felix Bohmann für iPad (oder eventuell Tablets allgemein, so es Android-Versionen gibt) find ich (natürlich nur ultrakurz geprüft ;) ) Oyakodon und/oder Tootle gut.
Weil: Landscape-Modus
EDIT: Ok, Tootle vielleicht doch nicht, denn damit konnte ich diesen Kommentar nicht absenden :)
es geht auf jeden fall vorran.

building a party

i like how with every single one of my friends taking a look at our little place on the fediverse it feels a little bit less empty. i know it is not exactly empty, but getting friends over feels so good. good night good people of the abraum.

greetings from bergen aan zee again. a few days left before heading home.


hello again

greetings from bergen an zee! refueling after uc11, will be back soon!

packing for #uc11 has begun. looking forward to a week of outdoor (tech-)fun with normal people. ;) #demoscene

nichts zu sehen

what has happened these days: sold 2 vw t3 busses, workspace cleanup almost done. almost no time spent in the studio, beginning preparations for a 7 day semi-outdoor demoparty. feels good. also feeling tired.

sometimes you just have to fake-meditate on a dangling speaker for the camera. :) #studio #diy #totallysafe

Lovely :).
Das dritte Auge weit offen.

mastodon clients with 2021.06-rc

!Friendica Admins

moin *!

i am experimenting with a friendica instance, right now i am testing the mastodon api with various ios clients, but i cant get past the login. there seems to be issues related to oauth, or authentication in general. i get logs like these:

when trying to accept the useage agreement on mercuro for mastodon after what seems to be a successful login and app connect:

2021-06-16T17:14:16Z index [NOTICE]: Unhandled request field {"parameter":"scope","value":["read","write","follow","push"],"command":"oauth\/token"} - {"file":"BaseApi.php","line":155,"function":"getRequest","uid":"a984fe","process_id":451063}

or with metatext, login is ok, app is connected, but then i get http 401 with this:

[Wed Jun 16 17:21:40.117648 2021] [php7:notice] [pid 450931] [client] PHP Notice: Undefined offset: 1 in /var/www/html/friendica/src/Security/BasicAuth.php on line 128

is that something that is just not working/tested yet, or is that some configuration error on my side?
thanks for the reply, will keep an eye on it. i will also look into my php config.
amaroq and b4x started working after pulling the merged #10410. yay.

mobile clients for ios

hello world! i went through the docs of friendica, and it seems i have to update the server a bit in the near future, as there is a release candidate for the beta we are currently running. good thing: since this version, it features a mastodon-style api, so mastodon ios clients should be useable with this instance soon! i will let you know once i have tested this!

it has begun (for me)

oh nice! the first real contact to an outside instance. hello @David ‘Bombe’ Roden

friends, lets get more people to freedom! :)

facebook aftermath

so, a few days ago i decided i could actually reopen my facebook account for a few days to pester my friends with new social locations like this here. turns out i missed the 30 day deadline by a few days, so my facebook account is gone for good now. the first few minutes i did not really know what to think of that, but this weird feeling turned into a slightly less weird kind of relief quite quickly. it is gone, all the data should be gone (or going soon) and that huge backlog only exists as a html archive here at home. feeling good. now: good night.

federation test

can remote friends read this?
I saw naaathing ;)
this feels a lot better than mastodon. but the testpicture felix is my mastodon test account on, and the federation works nicely.
