Plasma 5.4 beta is out!
“Today KDE releases a beta release of the new version of Plasma 5.4.
This release of Plasma brings many nice touches for our users such as much improved high DPI support, KRunner auto-completion and many new beautiful Breeze icons. It also lays the ground for the future with a tech preview of Wayland session available. We're shipping a few new components such as an Audio Volume Plasma Widget, monitor calibration tool and the User Manager tool comes out beta.”
I found 5.3 to be already "migration worthy", but 5.4 is looking really really great ;)

Or, in clearer words: if you add a title to your posts (if your client has that option, but most do), everyone, no matter which client they're using, will have a nicer "Meanwhile" feed, and much more useful e-mail notifications (for those who have them), so everybody wins ;)
Not to mention the fact that some clients have bugs that break the activity's description when there's no title, and interactions with your untitled post might end up being just "Jane Doe posted a comment in reply to." (yes, in reply to nothing) or "John Doe favorited." (favorited what?).
It's also quite sad when an untitled post becomes popular and receives a lot of likes and comments. Lots and lots of "Someone liked a note" and "Someone posted a comment in reply to... yes, a note".
Nobody should feel "forced" to use titles, of course. This is just a suggestion, but one that can really, really make the experience better for everyone here, and it's not that hard to follow ;)Show all 26 replies
Indifferenza e curiosita' morbosa
L'indifferenza e' una brutta bestia, ci fa passar dritto davanti a chi e' in difficolta', ma se quel qualcuno in difficolta' si trasforma in "personaggio di pubblico dominio", allora la nostra indifferenza si trasforma in curiosita' morbosa, vogliamo sapere tutto di lui, ma restiamo indifferenti alla sua situazione, la curiosita' morbosa e' affamata di informazioni vuote e inutili, non chiama all'azione, alla responsabilita' verso l'altro, ma solo all'autocompiacimento. Quella passeggera quanto superficiale sensazione di benessere che proviamo nell'autoconvincerci di essere migliori di loro.

Desde EOL-Internet: Microsoft se toma en serio la Windows Store y elimina más de 1.500 aplicacionesuna noticiaa leida en !EOL:
En un reciente estudio realizado por el portal How to Geek se puso de manifiesto que la Windows 8 Store albergaba en su interior una ingente cantidad de aplicaciones maliciosas o de dudosa procedencia. En el inventario fraudulento que se podía encontrar en la tienda de aplicaciones de Windows 8 estaban aquellas que simulaban a otras aplicaciones gratuitas pero exigiendo un pago, iconos copiados para parecer originales y un largo etcétera. Es por ello que Microsoft se lo ha tomado en serio y se ha puesto manos a la obra para acabar con este problema. Según se publica en el blog oficial… Leer noticia completa y comentarios »

- great news: WIP packaging of #pumpio in #Debian http://retout.co.uk/blog/2014/08/23/packaging-pump.io-for-debian thanks Tim!
If your pump.io server is identi.ca...
...remember the Pump network is much more than that! ;)
Lots of things changed when identi.ca migrated from the StatusNet system to the Pump.io system.
- Pump.io is not microblogging. You can post long texts, with some formatting and line breaks. Well, like this one! You can post short text if you wish, of course. Also, you don't need shortened URL's, and you can make pretty links.
- You can follow people from any other public Pump.io server, like microca.st, hotpump.net, fmrl.me, pump.jpope.org, etc. Start following some new people! You can take a look at this user finder, for instance. Or keep an eye out to see who your friends are following, in the Meanwhile feed ;)
Don't be afraid to follow people from other servers. That's what federation is all about, and that's our strength! If you've been scared by the "permission" message using the web, where you have to authorize the other server to post as you, etc, know that this isn't necessary if you use a desktop client.
- If you use the web interface, when you create new posts, they are not public by default. If you want to make a public post (currently recommended due to some issues with the comments), you'll have to add "Public" to the "To:" field. Try to make at least one public post, so people who see your profile can see you're active before trying to follow you. Ideally, if the post can be public, you should post it to Public; it works better.
- You can use several external web services with your account, like hip2.it, pump2status.net, or the "proof of concept" game, OpenFarmGame, to name a few. One of the strenghts of Pump.io is not being a monolithic beast, but instead, a lot of connected services an applications providing all kinds of features. Check them out!
- You can upload pictures, audio, video and other files in your posts, though the officially "supported everywhere" attachments are pictures, for now.
- There are already several pump.io applications (clients), for PC or mobile devices that can do more than what the web interface can at this point. I seriously recommend checking them out: Clients List.
- You can check out a pseudo-user directory at inventati.org/ppump/usuarios.
- If your account was used for some sort of entity, like a free software project or organization, you can take advantage of tools like Spigot, to post to Pump automatically from your RSS feed, or PumpTweet, to automatically send your Pump.io posts to Twitter. And you can find more options here.
If you have any doubts about any of these points, please feel free to ask.
This list has been modified a few times, and might be modified again, because yes, you can edit your posts and comments in Pump.io! =)

@Jason Self, about pump2status.net, the site goes up and down all the time (I have reported that some months ago...), but it works, once you pick a moment when it's up and you configure your account. My notes (if they are shorter than 140 chars) arrive my quitter.se account every day, even if the site looks down.
For getting it up (so you can setup your bridge), I think the best is that you mail admin [at] e14n.com. I would do it myself, but I prefer that other people show that the service is interesting too (sometimes I think I am the only user of pump2status.net...).
In the pump.io wiki there's a page Clients with detailed info about much of the software/service pieces that form the pump.io network.
Hope that helps!
Happy Birthday Debian!

“Oh.. that came out sounding waaaaay more snarky then intended.. Just ment to say it's time to let the up since xxxx go.”
Nah, not really. And I agree with your point of view. But I liked too much the idea of uptime as a metaphor for - well - age. :)
Bentornato su identi.ca dunque. E benvenuto su pump.io! :)
