About two hours ago, I was going to post that today is one of those awful days that I manage to have the opposite of a hat-trick: Argument with somebody that I love + Something hurts in my body + Something breaks (or I break something, unwillingly).
But I had only the two first, so I tried to look the bright side and try to finish the day the best I can.
And now, meanwhile I was preparing dinner, a big frame fell down in the hall. Some hours ago I did some cleaning and moved it. Now it slipped out and the glass is broken (thousand parts).
Thanks God my son was not wandering around.
Sorry to hear that @Laura Arjona :(
Some words of appreciation then, maybe of some help: throughout the last many months your excitement towards the campaign and mediagoblin and your overall general friendship have helped cheer me up when I have been down (and even pretty depressed, at one point). I'm sorry that things are rough for you... I'm not sure how much that is helpful to hear. It's the best I've got at the moment.
You are doing good things, and I'm glad you're around. And I'm glad your son is okay! I hope things will improve for you. In the meanwhile, take care of yourself!
Las mujeres sólo tenían ganas de caminar despacio hasta casa, llorar amargamente, abrazarse unas a otras y compartir el dolor en silencio. Pero había trabajo que hacer: limpiar el cuerpo y adecentarlo (en lo posible), envolverlo en el sudario y dejarlo preparado para el velatorio, preparar y servir la cena, atender a los invitados y acostar a los niños intentando que no hicieran muchas preguntas y que no notaran la desolación en sus caras... "La muerte no es el final", pensaban con el único humor que les quedaba, el negro, porque aún era sólo viernes.
Menea MediaGoblin, si eso...

Un meneíto para el último día de campaña, si eso... http://www.meneame.net/story/mediagoblin-consigue-60-000-descentralizar-web-multimedia-engShow all 6 replies
Aunque la noticia en Menéame no está teniendo mucho recorrido, sí, estoy contenta :)
Además del éxito de la financiación colectiva, que creo que da para contratar a dos personas para el desarrollo, MediaGoblin es uno de los 56 semifinalistas para las becas de la Knight Foundation, que se resuelven en junio.
Y además está el Google Summer of Code, el programa OPW... Así que creo que todo esto significa un buen empujón en el desarrollo del proyecto, lo que lo hará más pulido, más usable por más gente, y abrir camino a la federación de más servicios también.
¡Lo dicho, que muy contenta!
wow, perdón por la letraza de la última frase, siempre se me olvida el markdown! y no puedo editar comentarios ¿o con el último Dianara sí se podía? En cualquier caso, ahora tengo un poco de pereza para ponerme a compilar, y quizá no está tan mal así de grande "softwarelibre FTW!" :)

And now my phone does not boot. Cyanogenmod 7 splash screen: the blue Android skating, then the second splash, the blue Android on its skateboard and a circle spinning, and then... the first splash screen... :(Show all 8 replies
Well that AppExtractor didn't show many of my apps. No problem, I'm reinstalling them from F-Droid, they have no sensitive data, or they recover them from the SDCard when they are installed.
So it seems "happy end", except for the fact that I don't know why my phone broke, so it can happen again at any time.
Going selfhosting? - hardware
Estoy pensando en comprarme un equipo fijo para casa, e ir probando a autoalojar mis cosas/comunicaciones. Al parecer, la empresa (española) VANT ofrece equipos con Ubuntu Linux preinstalado, a precios razonables. Yo le pondría Debian, pero me parece un buen detalle que vendan los equipos con GNU/Linux.
Mi principal preocupación es si esos equipos pequeños con fuentes de alimentación pequeñas (en tamaño) darán buen resultado teniéndolos encendidos 24x7. En principio, sería mi servidor de correo + Jabber + owncloud o lo que sea para alojar/compartir ficheros con la familia, y si puedo, también MediaGoblin y mi blog, etherpad...
I'm thinking about buying a desktop PC for home, and begin trying to selfhost my stuff/communications. It seems that the (Spanish) company VANT offers computers with Ubuntu Linux preinstalled, at reasonable prices. I would install Debian, but I think it's a nice thing that they sell PCs with GNU/Linux.
Opinions about this one? http://www.vantpc.es/productos/ordenador-sobremesa-compacto-linux-corei3-pure3-c2145p ?
My main concern is if those small PCs with small power supply (in size) would result ok when being powered on 24x7. It would be my mail server + Jabber + owncloud or whatever for hosting/sharing files with the family, and if I can, Mediagoblin and blog too, etherpad...

very cool that they sell them with gnu linux!
I think this computer would do very well for the tasks that you plan for it. 4GB RAM is a good number, and would be the minimum I would recommend for pump.io + other things.
my main concern with these types of PCs is the fan -- is it decent for it to be on 24/7, and can the bearings hold out. if it is at home though, you may have to upgrade the fan every few years. I've had very few problems out of my home servers, so I think it would be fine.
I'm currently using an old lenovo desktop I had laying around -- Intel core2duo CPU and 2GB of RAM. :-) (my pump is on a vps still, though)
I have an old pc running pump.io,statusnet and diaspora at home for a year or so - so far works well and has enough spare cpu/ram to help a vps friendica instance out with some of its polling and more.
the only problems are when there is a power goes off in the house and i'm not around to restart it or when the dsl drops out (it does occasionally due to ancient phone wiring in the street)
its a 32bit machine with about 2G ram (a 32 bit cpu probably helps - ram use for just about everything everything is MUCH more sane than on the 64bit vps)
Elena ``of Valhalla'' likes this.Personally I use something that uses less power for a home server: it used to be a NSLU2, then a SheevaPlug and I'm currently migrating everything to an A20-Olinuxino https://www.olimex.com/Products/OLinuXino/A20/A20-OLinuXino-MICRO/open-source-hardware (in a 3D printed case :) ): they use very little power (<5W), they don't need a fan, they are small enough to fit on a shelf and they cost less than a full PC.
The power supply of the sheevaplug had to be changed after a couple years, but it was known to be failure prone; OTOH finding a 5V power supply for this kind of device is extremely easy.
It's Friday! Por fin viernes!!
Easter week is beginning; I dedicate this video (a song in Spanish, my translation of lyrics below) to all the people that are excluded, prosecuted or put apart just for trying to live and fight for love and social justice, and inviting others to do the same.
Silvio Rodríguez "Ala de colibrí" "Hummingbird's wing" (1995)
(Free, non-official translation to English. Original Spanish below.)
Today I propose to found a party of dreams, and workshops where we repair the wings of hummingbirds.
Loony people, ill ones, fat-without-love ones are allowed crippled, dwarfs, vampires, and days-without-sun.
Today I'm going to sponsor the deprived of hope candidness, that critical mass of God, that isn't post neither modern,
outlaws, rabids, people without home are allowed missing people, World Bank debtors...
Through a flaked off street, through a well done handshake...
Hummingbird’s wing, light and pure. Hummingbird’s wing, to heal you...
Today, I'm going to make an assembly of withered flowers, of rubbish from a children party, of used piñatas,
of shadows in torment from the natural kingdom, that provide license to any love artifact.
From the east, from the west through the desire, through the seed,
through so much night, through the daily sun, in company or alone...
Hummingbird’s wing, light and pure. Hummingbird’s wing, to heal you...
Silvio Rodríguez "Ala de colibrí" (1995)
Hoy me propongo fundar un partido de sueños, talleres donde reparar alas de colibrí.
Se admiten tarados, enfermos, gordos sin amor, tullidos, enanos, vampiros y días sin sol.
Hoy voy a patrocinar el candor desahuciado, esa crítica masa de Dios que no es pos ni moderna.
Se admiten proscritos, rabiosos, pueblos sin hogar, desaparecidos, deudores del banco mundial.
Por una calle descascarada, por una mano bien apretada.
Hoy voy a hacer asamblea de flores marchitas, de deshechos de fiesta infantil, de piñatas usadas,
de sombras en pena del reino de lo natural que otorgan licencia a cualquier artefacto de amar.
Por el levante, por el poniente, por el deseo, por la simiente.
Por tanta noche, por el sol diario. En compañía y en solitario.
Ala de colibrí, liviana y pura. Ala de colibrí para la cura.

OpenSSL heartbleed bug howto...
Well this is my plan for today
Update my computers, reboot, generate new ssh keys, change passwords. (Done!)
Check the servers that were with Wheezy, update them, reboot, generate new ssh keys, change passwords. The web servers were using OpenSSL 0.9.8.x so I don't need to request for new certificates, I think. (Done!)
Ask all the service providers where I have an account if they where affected; if so, if they patched their servers, and then, change passwords. (Work in progress)
Warn my users and friends about this. (Work in progress)
How can I know when a certain (third party) server is safe, if they don't issue an advice? My idea is to look at the SSL certificate issue date, but even if it is recent (from today on) I cannot be sure isn't it? And if it's old, maybe is the same situation as mine, that they were using OpenSSL 0.9.8.x and they are not affected...
What about GPG keys? Are they affected? Should I generate a new pair?
Michael shared this.
Thanks @luisgf but * It seems it's only for web servers (what about OpenLDAP, mail servers...) * I can trust if it says that the server is compromised, but not if it says that no, or that something went wrong (even if the server is ok, the certificate can be compromised and then, all the info anyway isn't it? or the certificate is only for authenticate the server, and it's not used for encryption?)

Not a Barbie girl :)
It seems that Girls Can be Anything When They Grow Up – Until They Start Playing with Barbie (/via @Fanta @Michael )
At home we were three girls, but we never had a Barbie. Other kind of dolls, yes, but not that one. One Barbie would be the cause of fighting among us for sure, and three Barbies were too expensive for our family in that time. Probably my parents didn't like the stereotypes that that doll introduced, anyway.
I didn't like dolls in general, my big sister liked to comb their hair and so, but I only liked to take out their arms and legs and head and put them again. Maybe they were my first tinkering activities XD
I remember me being jealous of my friends who had Barbie, though. Do you know what I liked about that doll? It was the only one that was able to bend the knees, elbows, and waist.
When I was 9, for first communion, a handheld came as present (I believe it was Eagle N Chicken) so I totally lost my (few) interest about dolls and began to tinker on that.
A bit later, an MSX (home computer yeah) and MSX magazines with pages and pages of Basic code, and a small book that explained (and drawed) very well "what is an algorithm", with an example of a robot making a cooking recipe :)
I'm so thankful to my parents for their choices of toys for us... But I still don't know how to comb my or other's hair!Show all 5 replies
