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!

Amusing maths test

Amusing maths test, and not with fake numbers like on Facebook (X% will fail blabla) :-)

Ha, solved it, fun indeed, and I understand how so many people can be stumped.

Friendica test Diaspora, Mastodon, GNU Social

Testing decentralised social networks from my Friendica instance, and following from various Diaspora, Mastodon, and GNU Social servers. Seems to work :-)

To install Friendica on Ubuntu 16.10 with MySQL 5.7.17, I had to patch Friendica a bit:

grep -l '= "0000-00-00"' -r . | xargs sed -i -e "s/= \"0000-00-00\"/= '0000-00-00'/g"
grep -l "0000-00-00" -r . | xargs sed -i -e "s/0000-00-00/0001-01-01/g"
grep -l "!= '0001-01-01'" -r . | xargs sed -i -e "s/!= '0001-01-01'/> '0001-01-01'/g"
grep -l "== '0001-01-01'" -r . | xargs sed -i -e "s/ ===? '0001-01-01'/ <= '0001-01-01'/g"
grep -l "strpos(\$dob, '0000-') === 0" -r . | xargs sed -i -e "s/strpos(\$dob, '0000-') === 0/strpos(\$dob, '0000-') === 0 || strpos(\$dob, '0001-') === 0/g"
grep -l "\$dob = '0000-'" -r . | xargs sed -i -e "s/\$dob = '0000-'/\$dob = '0001-'/g"
