Honest Trailers: Game of Thrones
If you don't know the "Honest Trailers" videos, you should!
This one is for Game of Thrones, and it's very fun =)
They have a lot of these, for all kinds of movies, tv series and videogames.
Warning: lots of spoilers from season 1, 2 and 3. There is a non-spoiler version, too.

Dianara v1.2.0 just went out the door!
It's that time of the trimester again! Dianara 1.2.0 is out! =)
The main changes in this version are the possibility of editing (modifying) your comments, enhanced filters, which now apply to the timelines too, and can highlight activities in addition to hiding them, using some nice colors, the ability to search the contact lists, and the “avatar buttons” everywhere, with several options for the contact.

Huge thanks to all the people who beta-tested, contributed patches and translations, and maintains packages! You all rock!

Dianara 1.2.0 is now in Mageia Cauldron, and soon in some mirror near you. ;)”
Thanks to you too!!
Idea for PumpMigrate
Hi there, kabniel!
Today sazius used PumpMigrate to sync contacts between his main account and his backup account, and then apologized for the "noise" in our Meanwhile feeds.
And I thought... "follow" and "unfollow" are just activities, and therefore can be addressed to followers, to public, or to whoever we want, in theory.
So, it could be pretty great if PumpMigrate, when doing such a big-scale "migration", would create the "follow" (and "unfollow") activities setting the To/CC to a null address, to the address of the account being backed up, or only to the address of each person being followed, or something... as long as it's not "all followers" =)
If this works as I expect, it would mean silent migrations, zero annoyances and no more apologies :p
What do you think? Cheers!
Colegota shared this.
I didn't get around to test the theory either =)
“At least I guess the person you follow should get it so their instance knows you are following them :-)”
Pump.io probably puts whatever is needed into motion to make that happen anyway, but yes, it would make sense to send the activity to the user being referenced in it :p
I don't know how actively developed PumpMigrate is, but what better way of making it active than talking to its developer about possible enhancements, right? He he heee...
Dianara v1.2.0 "RC"... or something!
Dianara-dev users out there who pull from the Gitorious.org repo often, will notice that the version string is now 1.2.0 RC.
I'm not making a release or anything, but this is essentially what will be 1.2.0 in a few days, unless I see something "big". A 1.2.1 release will probably come not long afterwards, anyway =)
“- Comments can be edited.
- Ability to search the contact list by partial name or address.
- Filters have been extended to be used in the timelines too, and can also
be set to *highlight* posts, in addition to hiding them.
- Fixed very wide comments.
- Nicer avatars-buttons with options are used everywhere now.
- Meanwhile items such as "someone followed someone else", also have an
avatar-button for that person, with the usual options.
- 'Meanwhile' item highlighting uses different, customizable colors. These
are also used in the Timeline posts, where appropiate.
- Configurable notifications.
- More information in Meanwhile tooltips.
- Fuzzy timestamps, like "3 minutes ago" are updated every minute.
- Log window.
- Post of type 'audio', 'video' and 'file' are shown in a basic manner.
Video/Audio upload mostly works but has been disabled for this release.
- More keyboard control for timelines (Ctrl+Up/Down/PgUp/PgDown/Home/End).
- Quoting partial comments (selected text) now works, though it has issues.
- Info about a hovered URL in posts and comments is now shown in the status bar.
- New contacts are added to the lists without the need to fully reload them
after following or unfollowing someone.
- Several enhancements in the Image Viewer.
- Added some fallback icons, to be used when the system iconset doesn't have
an appropiate icon.
- Disable some menus and widgets until Dianara is authorized to use an account.
- New libmagic dependency.
- Lots of other fixes and improvements.”Show all 13 replies
Testing "pasted" table...

>> Bradley M. Kuhn:
“Which client did you use? This looks wrong in pumpa, FWIW, and I couldn't get the pasting to work on the web interface.
We need better pump.io clients.”
Dianara, of course.
Nothing against the other clients, obviously, but it makes sense that I make tests with my client and show its features, doesn't it? =)
Sazius, great! :D
Polishing Dianara v1.2…
I’m putting some final touches on Dianara 1.2, since I'd like to release it soon. I'm still deciding if I release a beta, or drop some details for now, release a 1.2.0 version, and have 1.2.1, and other minor releases later.
Either way, Dianara coming soon ;)
Some of the main features include:
- Enhanced filters, which now can act on the regular timelines, in addition to the Meanwhile feed, and not only hide, but also highlight activities according to a series of rules.
- Ability to search the contact lists, and lots of optimizations when following/unfollowing people.
- User avatars everywhere act as menus with options related to the user.
P.S.- In other news, a fellow pumper managed to build Dianara for MSwindows. More on that later!Show all 10 replies
“My reply was "To JanKusanagi, Cc: Followers". Possibly I was replying to the shared post which didn't have your original To/Cc's... sigh...”
ouch, makes sense... I guess your nice method of "customizing" the audience to include the quoted user can't know this was also sent to Public in the original post action :\

Hey!! (incoming spanish greeting message)
Y mas concretamente, a Talo!
No olvideis leer los consejos para empezar.
This... is... SPARTAAA!!
Well, Birdparta xD
Let there be stalkers!
Also new today in Dianara, newer than my previous image about the highlight colors and avatar menus actually, is this.
Now, in activities which are "done to a person", such as someone following someone else, you'll see the avatar-button for that someone, too, with the usual options. So you can go ahead and follow every single person your contacts follow, right from the Meanwhile feed, like some sort of "social maniac" =)
Let there be color!
Short update on Dianara 1.2-dev:
The screenshot shows the (customizable) colors, highlighting events in the Meanwhile related to me. There are 4 types of highlighting, each with a different color, or no color, if the user so wishes.
Also seen here, the "avatar-menu-buttons" in posts are much nicer now, just the size of the avatar, and they're also used in the Meanwhile and comments. Following and unfollowing almost anyone is just a couple of clicks away now =)

Mageia GNU/linux 4 is out!!
Version 4 of the Mageia distribution has been released today!
“Right on time, and just in time for the first day of FOSDEM 2014, we have the great pleasure of announcing Mageia 4. We’re still having a grand time doing this together, and we hope you enjoy this release as much as we’ve enjoyed making it. And if you’re at FOSDEM, come and help us celebrate!”
Mageia Welcome looks great for beginners =)
Issues following an @identi.ca account from other pumps
Some people are having issues following a certain identi.ca user from other pump.io servers. Following him from an @identi.ca account works.
Following him from a @microca.st account resulted in:
"Internal Server Error (500) TypeError: upstreamDuplicates is not an array"
Any ideas? Does this deserve a proper bug report?
The user in question is 'deblinux'.
Thanks!Show all 5 repliesI pretty-printed their JSON profile data. Somehow their upstreamDuplicates entry (which contains their old Identica URL) has become a map. I have no idea how.
I think two things are in order. Firstly, discovering how the profile ended up looking like that. Secondly, blocking whatever route caused it to occur.
WE ARE THE PUMP.
YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED.
RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.
Doctor Who video
Just a test, this time with video.
It's a µvideo, 128 KiB in size... I wouldn't want to create extra traffic for the pump server I'm on =)

“For some reason Firefox has problems with your file. It only plays a few seconds and it's completely black.”
Well, it's a 128 KiB video xD
I dd'd it from a real video. You should see like 2 seconds with a Doctor Who logo. It's MP4, so probably FF doesn't like it.
BTW, Phonon (at least on Qt4 times) makes quite a lot of sense outside the KDE Plasma environment! =)
The only real problem I've seen is not having a clear way to change backends.
That being said, with Qt5 (and, to some extent, in Qt4, I think) there's QtMultimedia in parallel with Phonon, IIRC =)
I still have to properly show it too. Maybe a quick workaround could be a QWebView with some <video> tag code, opening as a different window on request, or something.
You'll want both web view and non web view paths. If somebody shares a video from YouTube using impeller, for example, the steam property will point to a flash file (with stream.type =application/x-shockwave-flash). Prefer the embedCode in that case, because it's an iframe which will get HTML5 video

Pump it up!!
You will probably not see any indication of this, but this post includes an audio file. A short piece from "Pump it up", by Danzel, quite appropriate for Pump.io!
Yep, Dianara has now basic (in progress) audio upload support =)
EDIT: Sorry Evan, I deleted that other audio because this one was better for the occasion :pShow all 11 repliesOh, this is great! Awesome. That's just how to do it.
Sorry, I didn't examine the activity itself, just the description, and I jumped to the conclusion that it was the way I didn't want to do it.
There's a mechanism in ActivityStreams to add an array of attachments to an object . I think in most cases if you're sending some audio call it "audio", not "note with an audio attachment".
Chuck Norris' permits
Say 'hi' to Dianara v1.1!!
The main highlights of this version are the enhancements in the Meanwhile feed (specially the “+” button to open referenced posts), the filters, and the fact that you can add and remove members from person lists now.
And fixes all over the place. Check the blog post, or the CHANGELOG file for a more detailed list.
