ouch. maybe go back to smoke signals. (warning: very nerdy stuff)


good day, fellow people on!

there will be some maintenance work, upgrading the friendica installation, the site might be down for a bit during the process!



falls nochmal jemand nach einer online-bank fragt: ist toll, n26 scheinbar immer noch nicht, siehe

anguckbefehl. 90 minuten blanker horror. ist mir nicht alles neu, aber die dimensionen sind unfassbar.
ja, amazon muss weg, grosskonzerne müssen weg, korruption muss weg, facebook muss weg, … usw usw usw. vieleicht ist es aber auch schon zu spät.


service announcement for my friends: i was today years old when i learned about, a european search engine that is not google, values privacy etc etc etc.
go check it out if you dont want to feed the google shit machine more data!
also, yeah, not being very active on socials right now. too much stuff to do in the real world!

was für ein horror. scholz will ich nicht, laschet schon garnicht. baerbock würde ich gerne sehen, aber das ist ja scheinbar raus. hilfe.
Ich wünschte nur die grünen würden konsequent auch grüne politik machen und nicht eher ne schwarz-grüne mischung sein

ja, super, cdu, weiter so. ihr schafft das noch mit unter 20. da geht noch was.

login persistency(?)

hello !Friendica Support, i am wondering why i have to log in to friendica each and every time i open a browser. is this by design, and/or are there options to change that behaviour? (i can not find anything related to that)

true. i store my 2fa stuff in a password manager, so there is a layer of security in the form of a long password infront of my 2fa tokens. but that makes it so unpleasant to type the 2fa tokens in more than necessary. i guess there is no right and wrong options here.
Yes, it's all about tradeoffs between convenience and security. 2FA mostly prevents remote logins with stolen credentials, but your mobile device security is another matter entirely.

installed seafile, deleted dropbox account. one corporation less. feels good.
Ah. Danke. Möchte auch unbedingt weg von Dropbox. Empfehlungen für meine Zwecke (die Du ja kennst)?

32ch analog mixing console giveaway

hello people of the fediverse! if you are looking for a 32ch analog inline mixing desk, i have 2 of those that i am ready to give away. one tascam m3500 and one tascam m3700 (the same board, just with a small vca automation computer). location is near elmshorn/hamburg, and you have to come with a big car (station wagon / kombi) to pick one up, as they are quite big. this can be reshared to people around hamburg! #tascam #m3500 #analog #console #hamburg
the m3500 is gone for a good cause. m3700 still up for grabs.
m3700 is reserved now.

tired: MDMA
wired: MRNA

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.

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.

ah yes

3:30 am, why not light up the whole road? #neighborofdoom

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.
