The next minor version 1.13.1 of FreshRSS is ready for testing, so please go ahead and report your findings :-)
It is for a quick fix, but also contains a better import/export (including custom labels), Docker improvements, etc.

Maybe, I ask here as well:

Would it be possible to set the "update channel" in FreshRSS to "testing"? I like to participate in the test, but it would be easier to stear that from inside the web app.

Testing FreshRSS 1.13.0-dev

The next version of #FreshRSS is almost ready, and I would like to invite you all to test the /dev branch before the final release in the coming days - hopefully in time for the holidays season :-)

Par contre mes messages ne sont pas visibles sur Friendica, mais je les vois ici sur Diaspora.
C'est ouf !

Ah oui, les conversations via plusieurs systèmes différents ne sont pas encore parfaites :-)

Soleil au nord

À Copenhague (55°N), le soleil en été se lève au nord-est et se couche au nord-ouest, ce qui fait que les fenêtres donnant au nord peuvent être ensoleillées le matin et le soir 🌞

et ca s'accentue
bonjour voisin
moi je suis en Norvège

New LoRa TTN gateway in Copenhagen

Episode 17 of Pepper & Carrot in Danish

It's been a while since the last episode, but my daughter has just made the French to Danish translation of the Episode 17 of #peppercarrot :-)

She was a bit slowed down by the transition from GitHub to Framagit, but should be back on track now.

@alkarex Many thanks again to you and your daughter @alkarex !

Notable changes:

* Ability for the admin to reset a user’s password
* Ability to pause feeds, and to hide them from categories

In FeedMe, remember to set “Settings / Synchronisation Mode / All”.
FeedMe currently has a synchronisation strategy that is much slower than e.g. News+, especially for large amounts of unread articles, but I will make some suggestions of improvement to the developer in the coming days.

@alkarex Thanks a lot for this release!
I had problems previously with the API despite it had already worked a long time ago with easyRSS (don't know if it's a Nginx problem or freshRSS, but everything seemed to be OK in conf...)
I will retry to configure it then :)

It will soon be available by auto-update when @marien has pushed the changes to the update server :-)

Thanks again to all the #freshrss contributors 👍🏻

Pepper & Carrot en papier

@davidrevoy En attendant peut-être un jour une édition papier de notre traduction danoise de #peppercarrot , nous avons déjà acheté les deux premiers tomes en français :-)

Firefox Quantum

Very impressed by the speed of #Firefox 57 (Quantum), especially in the UI :-)
I was quite annoyed of seeing most of my extensions not supported, but I found replacements for a good share of them. Here are some remaining ones (suggestions welcome for alternatives):
* ChatZilla (not yet possible with WebExtension)
* DownThemAll (a Lite version is coming soon for WebExtension)
* SSLeuth (not yet possible with WebExtension)
* Link Widgets

Video-surveillance at home

Following some burglary in our neighbourhood, I am installing some video-surveillance. I would rather not have my videos uploaded to a (foreign) cloud service, pay a monthly license fee, or lose the service when (not if) the cloud service stops. #domotics

I have settled for a (discount) D-Link DCS-2210L, and I am glad for my choice so far. It is a discontinued model, but that does not matter much for me: it is not directly exposed to the Internet, and can still be bought. #iot
Yes, I know :-P

It has a wide-angle Full-HD camera (covers one large room without problem), MPEG4, night vision, PIR (infrared) motion sensor, 2-way audio, Ethernet (I do not like Wi-Fi for stationary installations), and IPv6. #ipv6

It can be used standalone, with many options to view videos live, upload videos by e.g. FTP, send video-clips by e-mail when motion has been detected, mask areas of the video, etc.

There is also the option to use the D-Link cloud system "mydlink" and their mobile app. That is not for me, but good for someone who wants to be self-hosted, but who is not ready yet.

I use it coupled with my Synology Surveillance Station, which stores videos continuously locally in low quality, and in high quality when events are detected, as well as sending notification alerts with photos, also accessible from a mobile app. There are good options to sync/upload with a distant server, in case the NAS is stolen :-P


Next step is a second camera for outside.
To be continued...

Episode 12-16 of Pepper & Carrot in Danish

My daughter (9 years old) has continued her translation work and episodes 12-16 of #peppercarrot are now available in Danish :-)

Friendica to Mastodon

My Friendica instance is finally working with Mastodon in both directions :-)
One must disable HTTP/2 due to a bug in Mastodon / Ruby

Flat UI designs are slow

A study, which makes me happy (I do not like flat design) :-)

Flat UI Elements Attract Less Attention and Cause Uncertainty
A "flat" design removes the distinction between navigation controls and content. Historically, navigation controls such as buttons were shaded, or given 3D relief, to distinguish them from the application or web page's content.
Flat interfaces often use weak signifiers. In an eyetracking experiment comparing different kinds of clickability clues, UIs with weak signifiers required more user effort than strong ones.

Pepper & Carrot (MOTION COMIC) Episode 6: The Potion Contest

(With Danish subtitles courtesy of our little family :-) )

Félicitation à l’équipe Morevna pour avoir achevé leur dérivation en “BD Animé” (Motion Comic) de l’épisode 6 de Pepper&Carrot “Le Concours de Potion”. En tant qu’auteur, ça fait sacrément drôle d’entendre parler et gesticulé mes personnages. J’adore la voie de anglaise de Saffron et Shichimi! Le projet a été fait entièrement avec des outils libres et est distribué en CC-By-Sa.

Bonne séance!
