The fediverse is Mastodon, Pleroma, Diaspora, Friendica, Hubzilla, Osada and all their friends, federating. But what do we call all the silos, the ad-based family of Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and friends? How about Adverse? It's true: a universe founded on ad serving. And a reminder that the offer plenty of adversity.

I hadn't visited their site in quite some time... so long, in fact, that I had forgot it existed to be quite honest... :\

That said, I'm happy to have rediscovered The Center for Humane Technology while tidying up my bookmarks! Their site does have some great info, and while I know this isn't exactly news to many of you, it is definitely worth sharing things like this to keep these topics active, and the discussions happening often!

This sort of info really needs to circulate on the proprietary networks, as most of us who use #distributed / #federated networks are all too aware of this stuff - but if you have access to FB, Twitter and the like, then please share things like this on there!

I find it revealing when people mock where I came from, & say they’re going to “send me back to waitressing,” as if that is bad or shameful.

It’s as though they think being a member of Congress makes you intrinsically “better” than a waitress.

But our job is to serve, not rule.

API field user for forum posts

Hello @Friendica Support ,

with the latest release the values in the field user was changed to the forum user instead of the original author. In the last release the friendica_owner field was changed from the forum user to the author (see issue 5884). I would prefer the author in the user field and the forum user in the friendica_owner field.

New Friendiqa version 0.4

Hi there,
I put a new version of Friendiqa at my binary F-Droid repo
I wasted lots of hours to implement a background sync feature. The replies API was also implemented and the app asks now for storage access permission on first start (a feature of Android >6). If you find any bugs, please report them. I will put the version in the Playstore after some days.
@Friendica Developers @Friendiqa
Why were those hours wasted? Doesn't it work?
It works, but I had to reimplement the news part again in Qt C++ (formerly JavaScript) and feared I have to reimplement it again in Java along the way. The Android JobScheduler is only available from Java so I had to do stuff again in a language I don't like. The worst part was to find a way stop the Qt service and then the Java part in order to restart it when it gets called from Android. It took a lot of trying and failing...
I'm sorry about that...

I didn't know that Voyager has that much fans...

New git home

@Friendica Developers Hi, after the takeover of Github by Microsoft I'm looking for a new home for the source code of my projects (Friendiqa, Federazione widmet, friendica-comment,...). Is it possible to get an account on Or can I login with an OpenId account? Cheers, Marco
😉 My biggest hobby here (and forums) as this gives an applause for good content.
I'm registered there now.

Qt background tasks

Does anyone know how to start scheduled background tasks in Qt? Is there some timer class or some OS specific thing like the JobScheduler in Android?
Thank you! Android kills all apps regularly and you have to create services for background tasks due to battery saving. I wonder what the mechanism on Plasma Mobile etc. is and how battery is working...
So no background sync for social media with apps from store? Hmmm...

Do NOT consume palm oil. Palm oil plantations KILL helpless orangutans on purpose. When you eat processed food products with palm oil, THIS is what you are buying.

Palm Oil Investigations

Palm oil and species extinction
​Quote Taken from COP (Centre For Orangutan Protection)
"Orangutans’ #poaching is done deliberately as a policy made by #palmoil #corporations. Therefore they hire local people as pest busters, who serve the #corporation with #killing any #wild #animals, including #orangutans, which spoil #palm oil trees within the #plantations. The pest busters will bring up a cut-off hand of an #orangutan they have killed and hand it to the corporation as a proof. When they find an adult female orangutan with her baby, they will usually kill the ‘mother‘ and take away the baby for pet or sale".

It is estimated that over 50 Orangutan are killed every week due to #deforestation. #Forest homes are cleared by either heavy machinery or fire. Orangutans are left starved with no #food source and often trapped in pockets of isolated areas with no way out and often wander onto plantations searching for food. The orangutan are considered a pest by many of the oil palm companies as they often destroy young palm plants in the hope of finding food.​ They are run over by excavation equipment, doused in petrol and burnt alive, captured, tortured, beaten, shot with air guns or slaughtered. As forest home is destroyed they become vulnerable to poachers. Infant orangutans have monetary value and are often kept as pets or illegally smuggled, the only way a mother will let go of her infant is if she has been killed.

Yes, nothing spectacular... Mostly things we already know.
