My sites are being moved to some faster hardware. This may affect the #Friendica and Red main directories on the short term. As the Red directory is mirrored, you can always choose another. The Friendica global directory is not mirrored and might experience a bit of downtime.

The project websites may also be affected for brief periods, but the directories get more use day-to-day.

Please pass this on to your Friendica contacts.

Oh, and scrolling down, I see he only got an A-. My set-up is now:

SSLEngine on

SSLProtocol -ALL +SSLv3 +TLSv1 +TLSv1.2
#SSLProtocol All -SSLv3 -SSLv2
#SSLCipherSuite EECDH+AES:EDH+AES:-SHA1:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA384:AES256-SHA256:!RC4:HIGH:!MD5:!aNULL:!EDH:!AESGCM;
#SSLCipherSuite EECDH+AESGCM:EDH+AESGCM:HIGH:!MEDIUM:!LOW:!SSLv2:!aNULL:!PSK
SSLCipherSuite EECDH+AESGCM:EDH+AESGCM:HIGH:!MEDIUM:!LOW:!SSLv2:!aNULL:!PSK:!3DES
#SSLCipherSuite EECDH+AESGCM:EDH+AESGCM:HIGH:!MEDIUM:!LOW:!SSLv2:!aNULL:!PSK:!SSLv3:!3DES
SSLHonorCipherOrder on
SSLCompression Off
SSLInsecureRenegotiation off
SSLOptions StdEnvVars
Header add Strict-Transport-Security: "max-age=15768000"

BrowserMatch "MSIE [2-6]" \
nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown \
downgrade-1.0 force-response-1.0
BrowserMatch "MSIE [17-9]" ssl-unclean-shutdown


It is apparently desirable to get rid of SSLv3, except that "Firefox-25 on Ubuntu-1304 still needs SSLv3."

The difference might be my 4096-bit key.

Just an idea.

#^Feature request: Global crosspost/share plugin

Currently people must write a complete plugin if they want to crosspost/share to another website (like Libertree). Is it not a good idea to simplify this with one common plugin that accepts API's from external sites? I think this will make the whole sharing to external sites part of Red Matrix a lot more stable and streamlined. It will also be a lot easier to maintain and external sites can easier be added.

1. Federate with #[url=http://jeroenpraat.nl/search?tag=Friendica]Friendica[/url]: To allow a smooth transition from Friendica to the Red Matrix, it would be great if Red Matrix users could federate with Friendica users. This should be an option, not default.

Whatsapp alternatives
I probably asked this already (on Friendica), but what do you think are great #WhatsApp alternatives? I don't use it myself anymore and now after the $16bil. Facebook deal, it's time again to convince friends and family to use another similar messaging app.

Right now I use MySMS. It's unfortunaly not open-source (some parts are), but it's Austrian. That practically means; no patriot act and further away from the NSA! It combines SMS with free messaging and works on all devices. But I presume the name and complete image of MySMS is not sexy enough for people.

On Twitter they are now very enthusiastic about an app/service called Telegram. This is very secure, open source, but also Russian I have heard.

What's your opinion?

Telegram is not perfect, I admit. But a lot more secure than commercial alternatives like Whatsapp. At least Telegram is helpfull when people asking questions about their security. They also open sources their clients and they have a open api. Plus they promised the open source the server part also.

XMMP/Movim is maybe great for technical users, like you and me, but not for the rest of humanity.

Publishing the number of users, active users, or number of posts on a Friendica node open for public signups (the data collected in statistics.json) doesn't seem like privacy invasion to me. Beyond just academic interest, it could be useful. It could paint a clearer picture of the project's scope, resources available, etc.

If a Friendica admin publishes a blog post saying "Awesome, 1K users! 12K posts!" I don't see the harm in it; how is this different? Why only have the data available from nodes that make all profiles public by default?

At any rate, an opt-in checkbox for "anonymous usage statistics" could just be part of the signup process, although I realize the stats addon is not part of Friendica core and ultimately relies upon code written for Diaspora and hosted by a Diaspora pod admin.

This obviously isn't a huge issue, but I think it's worth a little discussion at least.

The main difference is the feature list and the easiness of setup / maintenance. In the end it would be just great to have ${something like the freedombox} running in each household running ${your fav socnet software} which are all interlinked supporting their protocols (or choosing one protocol which I doubt will ever happen).

Why I prefer ~friendica ~friendica is simple because it's a great hub for connections to friends in various networks. And I like the look'n'feel. Also setting it up on your own box is really simple.

Matrix tab keeps spinning
Hi,
After I've updated my server from Ubuntu 3.04 to 3.10 I have a problem with the matrix tab. The 'commented order' and 'posted order' tabs are not loading. I see only a constantly spinning wheel below the share field. All other functions seem to work normal. I can also see the Personal and New tab without problems.

What can be the problem? I enabled logging, but I can't find any warnings and a lot of posts and connections are coming in as far as the log is concerned. Nothing on my screen. Checked it in Firefox and Chromium.

I didn't had an answer on the #redmatrix, so I assume it didn't came through. So maybe even more problems.

Does someone have any idea?
