#Dianara is in the main #openSUSE repo... Shiny... ;-D
Is anybody here using RetroShare? http://retroshare.sourceforge.net/
Going back to status.net
Sorry identi.ca/pump.io, you just don't fulfill my social network needs. I registered today om quitter.se just to see how status.net looks nowadays. Not really good (compared to the old times), but in the past few hours I saw far more life over there than I see here in a week. Plus it had all the features that I loved when I started using identi years ago, things like:
- plain text messages (I have no need for formatting)
- simple tags - # @ ! (these make finding relevant notices extremely easy)
- groups, groups, groups!!! (essential thing for me!)
- 140 character limit (I like how it makes each note a small mind game to compress your thoughts into so few characters, but still say what you want)
All this was thrown away on pump.io just to get a single visible thing in return (probably more stuff under the hood but that's not something a user interacts with) - html, the nasty formatting, embedding, etc... I can't even simply paste a paragraph from a website to send it here, as it carries colors, font styles, even a background! It's so frustrating.
I felt so happy using status.net today that I can't put it into words - I found how much I was missing the simple, yet perfect (for me) microblog format. The sad thing in all this is that the awesome community that was on identi.ca before pump.io, has nearly completely dissapeared in both places. Some people here, some people there and a pretty large group that went to proprietary networks.
That's why I'm going back to status.net. *I'm not leaving identi.ca though*, I'll still post here too when I'll have anything interesting to say, but it's going to be my secondary social network. Sorry, I think I waited long enough for pump.io to get back on track where status.net was at the moment of the change. It's not there today and I don't anticipate it in the forseeable future.
Sorry Evan, JanKusanagi and everyone else who put hard work into making pump.io and tools around it - it's just not ready to use yet. It dropped/replaced too many features, that haven't been brought back. I hope that one day pump.io will be more awesome than status.net, but it's not today.
I feel bad for saying all this, but that's how I feel now.Show all 9 replies
Welll, as I said, being the first users of something while it's being built isn't for everyone. There is an amazing potential, but it still needs to be realized, and the work isn't going to be done just by wishing. Someone has to do it, and pump.io has waaay more parts and components than most users realize.
Just check again in a few months =)well, it's been 4 months... and quitter.se still blows identi.ca out of the water.
Sure old identi.ca's look was unattractive, but I have always been a function over form guy.
Give me function any day of the year over form.
Make it work, then make it pretty if you can, but it has to continue to work just as well as before you added pretty, got it?
(think i pounded that thought in enough?)

Does anybody know of a (preferably desktop) image/photo viewer that can present images in a similar way as Steam's screenshot gallery? I mean a "well" with relatively large thumbnails, but different sizes and arranged in a few different layouts.
Imagine a story setting/world under a free license. So anybody could add to it and use it for their own works - stories, fanfiction, computer games, rpg games, movies, etc. without the fear of being sued by some large corp...
Ah, wishes... :-(Show all 5 replies
@JanKusanagi - I would start if I felt that I'm capable of finishing such project, but I'm not.
@Jari - thx, added to my rss reader to keep track.
Overall I often find some great setting in e.g. a book and I'd love to use that world for my own story or an rpg scenario, but then I see the copyright notice and I get demotivated. What's the point of creating something when I potentially might get told to give it away or destroy it? :-P

I'm starting to think that Dianara shouldn't accept rich text when pasting.
You probably don't realize this, but your note has the background defined as white, which for me means white text on white background. My default text is white, because my default background is dark gray.
So in your note, since the style of the background is defined by the HTML you pasted, I see white on white xD
Dianara 0.1-dev already has a "paste without formatting" option, but I doubt people would use that if they don't see anything wrong when pasting with the normal option.
Well, in 1.0-dev you can edit the message after it's been posted. Not by editing the source HTML, but still...
If I copy your message and paste it into a new message, I also get the white background, but then using "Select All" and setting test to "normal" works for me.
Anyway, if you noticed something was wrong, that's good enough, because with 1.0 you could then undo and use the "paste without formatting" option :)
I'm starting to really hate Nginx... Everywhere around CMSes provide configs for Apache and Nginx only. Sometimes even for the nasty IIS... WHY NOT for my favorite Lighttpd?!?!?!??! :-/
