    Venus & Mars

    Breakfast in a Bournemouth hotel

    Her: 'Excuse me. We ordered 1 tea, 1 coffee, then we added another tea. But then we realised you had hot chocolate available so both children switched to hot chocolate. So we cancelled 1 tea but nothing else as he hadn't ordered anything to start with. So now, we just need 1 tea, 1 coffee and 2 hot chocolates but we only have the hot chocolates and the pot of tea. So we are missing a coffee. Please could you possibly bring one over, if it's not too much trouble, when you've got a minute. Thanks very much'.

    Him: 'Can I get a coffee please ?'

    Beim Arzt beschweren!

    Haben mich nach der OP nicht korrekt zugenäht. Kaum trink ich was, läuft's unter den Armen wieder heraus. #Wetter

    Everyone noticed but was just restraining their inner troll, which was drooling at the prospect of complaining about GoDaddy fitting better with PumpDog than Identica. Unlikely, I know. Also, Chromium detects some insecure content. Looks like some avatars. But seriously, that's great!

    AFAIK the fix was found by some other programmer and the fix was spreaded before Evan published the 1.1.1. So it exactly happened like you said.

    Immer wieder eine schöne Disziplin: Im Businessbereich absichtlich missverständliche Formulierungen verwenden

    Ich hatte eben eine Firma am Telefon, an die einer unserer Kunden Daten melden muss. Die Firma hatte ein paar Fragen bezüglich einer Testdatei die wir geschickt hatten.

    Es ging dann um die Frage, wie lange ich heute erreichbar sein. Ich meinte dann, dass sie mir eine Mail schicken könnten, ich sagte ferner:

    "Wenn ich nicht gerade mit dem Kopf im Code stecke, rufe ich auch zurück."

    Meine Kollegen im Büro reagierten erwartungsgemäß, die Gegenstelle am Telefon blieb ernsthaft und ich tat natürlich auch völlig ernsthaft und übte mich in Selbstbeherrschung :)

    Nobelpreis für Edward Snowden

    Als besonders wichtig empfinde ich die Begründung:
    “This example is important because since the Nuremberg trials in 1945 has been clear that the slogan ‘I was just following orders’ is never claimed as an excuse for acts contrary to human rights and freedoms,” Professor Svallfors wrote.

    ‘Heroic effort at great personal cost’: Edward Snowden nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

    A Swedish sociology professor has nominated Edward Snowden for the Nobel Peace Prize. He says the NSA whistleblower could help “save the prize from the disrepute incurred by the hasty and ill-conceived decision” to give the 2009 award to Barack Obama.

    @Markus To be fair, I used to travel a lot in Europe (work) and I *always* made an effort to learn 'Hello', 'Goodbye', 'Thanks' and, in my case', 'One beer please'. I found it made a massive difference even though I reverted to English for the rest of the conversation. What I will never forget is when Scandinavians would politely ask me: 'Do you mind if we use Norwegian for this complicated technical discussion ?' I am English sitting in Oslo and they ask me if they can use their native language !

    Imagine that. You've worked tirelessly over the last 6 months to migrate a ton of data. You got up early and went to bed late to persevere with this bloody data migration.

    Inevitably, you keep finding minor, irritating problems with the data. You have to fix them and repeat the entire migration from scratch,. Again.

    You promised a date which slipped. People keep hassling you for a new date. You worked even harder. You got up earlier and went to bed later.

    You had a holiday booked just as the migrated system launches. Shit timing but what can you do. Your wife looks accusingly as you creep to the corner of your hotel room and extract a laptop. You login and fix an irritating problem with password recovery that previously worked fine.

    Finally, you finished, you won, you are triumphant ! is finally migrated to Pump.

    And all these ungrateful bastards can muster is

    'What do you mean ? There are no groups'.

    Due to the super federated nature of pump I could Groups being an instering technical challenge to implement. Maybe as a psudeo user on the originating pump that people follow and post to. But then that group is tied to a single pump and not really federated. If that pump goes down the group evaporates.

    I suppose a group property could be added to the note object. But then there is little or no control over who can post to a group

    Other problems, how do you prevent group name colissions? Keep track of who's subscribed? And do all this in a robust, federated manner.

    Suppose there could be some kind of “groups” object that gets replicated and stored on each pump that has people sub'd to said group. But then how to keep it all in sync..

    @evan is a bright person, I'm sure he has a vision of how it will all work.. but I know (as does any programmer/engineer/etc.) that vision and implementation are two very different animals.

    Best advice:

    People wanting groups - wait for it.. it'll come
    People Developing - don't cave to the pressure of the few and rush something out prematurely. I think the larger percentage of users are very appreciative of what you've accomplished and want to see it fleshed out properly

    Freemor at 2013-07-13T17:20:16Z

    I think Evan mentioned that some work on groups has already been done, but it is not yet exposed to the API and WebUI. at 2013-07-13T18:30:52Z

    pseudo users is how it's implemented in friendica ... problem is, if the group founder closes down his instance the group dies. think for a federated network something like tags would be more feasible, together with a cross site search (which would be a very cool feature on its own) you could just search for all posts containing a (group) tag

    axel668 (inactive) at 2013-07-13T18:42:11Z

    That's rather presumptuous of you. I can talk about bugs or missing features a lot without ever forgetting the devs' hard work. Two totally separate issues. at 2013-07-14T07:44:34Z

    Der NDR hat von der Demo gegen #PRISM aus #Hamburg berichtet. #piraten

    "Überwachung, Unfreiheit und Tyrannei"

    "Stop Prism now". Unter diesem Motto haben 200 Hamburger gegen das Ausspähprogramm des US-Geheimdienstes demonstriert.
