Some songs that has been important part of my musical bases and my synth pop. Right after the period of Iron Maiden and hevy metal I jumped right into Italo Disco and it just blow me away.

Starting of with Pet Shop Boys right before the really cool bridge :)

Follow up with this cool song. I never had it my self but a friend of mine had the 12"
It has a really nice intro and in general got me.

Further on with Italo Boot Mix vol 1, that the very same friend had. This is back in the age when this was fresh out from the vinyl press.

Upgrading to #funtoo 1.2, the first major upgrade since the release of kits.
I will most likely take the opportunity to rebuild the entire system as an ealier upgrade of lvvm seems to cause som "distrubance in the force" (things are strange but not clearly broken). In fact I am going to bootstrap the system as GCC is updated from 5.4 to 6.5. Might as well take the effort :)

Or as #kraftwerk almost say; "it's more fun to compile" :)

Welcome to the new group "The Sad Story of Humans" https://xn--askerd-0xa.hubzilla.se/dav/sadhumans

In this group we reflect and discuss about the sad things humans do in our society.

It is not a hate-group. It is about understanding and documenting human society, perhaps there is another view of it?

Welcome!
Erik R
  
Do anyone else see a pattern?

Lets reflect on the Hungarian election. First they blame the foreigners to get the power, then just a few weeks after the election they start to deal with the ones thinking different. They replace the head of the opera house to secure political influences and start making new intrusive laws. Taking a step back you see a pattern.
It is ironic that a few Swedish extremists emigrated to Hungary as Hungary will disallow emigration. Well, I am not sad they are leaving.

In Hungary they are not very subtle which Trump actually is in some ways outside twitter. He just replaced the manager of NASA with a person not knowing anything about NASA but that is a climate change denier. He also forbid some governmental institutions to use certain words. Both poart of a subtle control over communication and one of the more crucial institution in the understanding of the climate change.
One place where Trump is less subtle is on Twitter, which is ingenious - anyone that ask reasonable questions is hit by a shit-storm of hate from all those that admire what Trump is doing along the lane to world destruction.

In Hungary they start hunting the opposition quite openly, like in Poland. Laws are created to hunt down the opposition and control the media. One would think they learned something in the WW2, at least those countries that was really bad treated at the time. I realize this happens the same time as the last survivors from the holocaust dies by old age and we move the WW2 into the unquestionable history. It would be interesting to know how the description will differ over the next 200 years.

I recently moved from KDE to Cinnamon, both using Funtoo and the same configuration. Cinnamon seems to take a lot more memory altogether and I now have to upgrade from 16 to 32 GB RAM to be able to run 2 users (my private and company users). Memory used with the same programs as in KDE consumes around 13GB and once in a while some program dies due to out of memory. With two loged in users the Cinnamon process consumes 1.2 GB RAM by itself.

The main differens between KDE and Cinnamon is how LibreOffice works. It is clumsy and slow in KDE built for KDE and noticeably faster built for GTK in an GTK environment. I am in general quite found of KDE themes but Adwita is the theme for LibreOffice and Inkscape - makes much more sense.

There is always the risk of messing up the system when upgrading in Gentoo/Funtoo. If something vital fails to build you are in trouble. That is why I have a btrfs root. I always make a snapshot of root when upgrading and when everything is OK I just rename root to root-fallback and root-upgrade to root. Next boot the new upgraded root is used. If things go wrong I scrap the upgrade and wait a week for things to stabilize. This has been vital to secure an always working configuration. I learned this lesson when expath was upgraded in Gentoo several years ago and caused problems to portage itself - the one thing that must be used to get things right :)

Right now it is time for a major upgrade including GCC. Most likely I will make a bootstrap; rebuild compiler and binutils, then rebuild system (including compiler and binutils), finally rebuild everything. Whenever the system seems a bit unbalanced this is a good cure. Everything is in sync. Takes a day or two but it is worth the effort :)

I might even try Funtoo again if I ever have more time to fiddle with my machine - and machines that compile world in less than a week ;) Right now I'm perfectly fine with Slackware's 2-3 year release cycle.

Microsoft not only Spy on you, they prepare to judge your behaviour and ban offensive users


Interesting news for the well spread operating system you might hear of; Windows 10.

Microsoft have decided to take a go an start enable censure-on-demand. If you use offensive language during a usage of xbox or other Microsoft services (i.e. you get pissed of by some reason) Microsoft might investigate (implies they have information from the actual meeting stored). I can imagine that having the voice recognition enabled while manage to hit you self with a hammer might result in (well motivated in my eyeys) offensive language. In my case I are the most angry when I need to deal with (tam-tam-tam-tam) Microsoft Windows 10. My wife have given me constraints and banned me from window 10 - I am not allowed to use windows 10. It is OK as we are both happy linux users :)

Microsoft allows them self to disable services if user does not behave. I figure this would benefit me and the family-life (windows disables itself) for me but lets take a step back.

Microsoft have fought to get some kind of monopoly on operating systems on modern computers. It is actually difficult to buy a computer without window 10 today (unless one chooses Apple). In other words, I am not able to buy a computer without accepting Microsoft values which differs a lot from mine. This is actually quite serious but not unique. We also see how Microsoft have procured a lot of services like Skype and LinkedIn and mist likely applies similar terms on them.

I am not in favour to be rude, in fact I used to be a great fan of TinyTinyRSS but abandoned the software due to the conscious cruel and hateful tone on the forums. If a question was asked the person asking was mocked and the author mostly commented that he was to busy helping idiots that failed to understand his brilliant software. I have abandoned a few linuxes as the most active forum members are quite rude to newbies and if they don't want newbies why shall I bother - there is always another distro. I am now a happy Funtoo user and very pleased with the linux as well as the community.

Thing is that I make my own rules, draw my own lines and I think we all should. If the community/group/social context is to offensive for our taste we make a stand or leave. There are new groups/contexts to join. It should be my choice what to do and when it need to be done.
In the matter of operating systems there is the monopoly problem - most users don't see how they have a choice. Most users don't see the mostly amazing colourful fields in the open source community. Mostly one gets help and mostly one is appreciated because I actually enjoy something someone else developed. By using someone else's software I also acknowledge the effort put into that software.

When I took my first step into the reality after school I meet SUN OS 4 and felt in love. I abandoned Windows 3.1 and had no computer at home. I got a computer some yars later wwith windows XP but moved to Linux (kubuntu) when Windows XP got the "Genuine Advantage" and fake licenses stoped work. Wikipedia confirms that it was 2005 and I recall using a 5.4 Kubuntu. I moved to Gentoo soon there after and Funtoo a few years ago. I really think that I have the ability to make things work my way in Funtoo.

Even though I intend to stay in Linux for quite a while more, both for my private and my business computers, I am now more sure than ever that Microsoft is not my future when ever I have my own say.

Cheers,
Erik

Civil rights advocate Jonathan Corbett did us a favor and did something that most of us never do. He decided to read an updated Terms of Service agreement from Microsoft that he was sent via email and discovered some interesting changes.

I'm sure it was, for customer transactions, until the skyrocketing price made transactions so expensive. It was probably less useful for paying the rent, utility bills, or taxes. I've read stories about tax agencies having to cope with having businesses showing up to pay sales tax in cash.

Strange, it does not work for me.

I have enabled feeds as connections.
I try to add the RSS feed foor bleeping computer. It is quite picky about the URL;

That URL works in Firefox (get 10 last news). If I try without the last / it won't work though. Neither works to add as feed source.

Any suggestions? Will Hubzilla clean out the trailing / by any reason and that is the problem?

It seems like the URL:

works as well and that one worked as channel source. I think the trailing / is removed but have no proof. Don't know if that is a bug or feature though, it is reasonable that a site can manage both

Swedish Rock 'N Roll King Jerry William recently passed away. I never really liked him but on the musical resume I actually like a quite a few pieces.

Here with a well live performed Working Class Hero. The vocal dynamics in the performance is super. I like when the vocal combines piano and crescendo like that.

Of the versiones Duck found I think this is the best. Including John's original.

Hi,

I am preparing i channel to be used as a blog-ish thingie and for the public non-hubzilla world (instead of wordpress actually). I think it would be prudent to hide the connections unless logged in or connected.

Is there a way to do this? I can't find anything myself.

Hi everyone,

Well, not really New Here but back in a reshaped form on a new hub.

My name is Erik and I have just started my first well public hub. I used to be part of the Friendica network but lost interest, closed the web hotel and that was the end of that saga. I used to have an account on Red when that was new, forgot the hub though. Now I am back and after some time on hub I host for the local community as part of the local transition town.

I am interested in a lot of stuff; am a linux techie and c++ developer, have a heart in young refugees coming to Sweden, trying my best to contribute to a sustainable life on earth and to fight the big climate change.

Right now I am exploring the mentions and tag. Sorry for the duplicates :)

Well, just that I am abandoning hub.ridderby.se for the local community hub askeröd.hubzilla.se and as as well (since an hour) ridderby.se (without the hub).

Transition town is where I land on wikipedia if I search for "omställning" in Swedish and as the community the Askröds-hub is dedicated to is somewhat both the local green movement and community physically around here. We have both and they are somewhat connected and on many cases the same persons. Strange when one can explain the details of software architecture or the ALU but fails to translate every day common words :) It is closely connected to the green movement.

The lecture I held (where you hinted about FairCoin) was for a transition class.

Transition town - Wikipedia
The terms transition town, transition initiative and transition model refer to grassroot community projects that aim to increase self-sufficiency to reduce the potential effects of peak oil,[1]climate destruction, and economic instability.[2] The Transition Network, founded in 2006, inspired the creation of many of the projects.

Hi,
I just tried out creating wiki-pages on my site. It was very easy to share the creation of a wiki but for the pages I had to capture the URL and copy into a message "by hand". Is there a simplier way or shall I post a feature request?

Bara rasismen har en stark målbild i Svensk politik

Eriks Gröna Tankar
  
Ms partiledare sticker åter ut hakan i invandringspolitiken och försöker stjäla över röster från SD som i sin tur spelar på den vanliga människans naturliga rädsla för det okända. Rösterna är det centrala och politiken får justeras så att rösterna kommer.

MPs språkrör (heter det fortfarande så?) Isabella Lövin lördagspratade och vid sidan om oförmågan att beskriva varför ett utbyggt Arlanda är bra för miljön var det tydligt att huvudsyftet nästa mandat är att hindra SD från att ingå i regering.

Jag har svårt att se endera som seriösa i politiska inriktningar. Politik måste vara konstruktivt och bygga på att man vill något konstruktivt för Sverige. Som det ser ut nu handlar det bara och enkom om att blockera andra från att bedriva politik. Det vi ser är en indikation på ett grundläggande problem i Svensk politk: den som sitter i regering eller nära regering vågar inte bedriva opinion.

Det politiska opinionsarbetet som MP framgångsrikt har bedrivit innan regieringsexperimentet 2014-2018 har tvingat in miljö på agendan men väl i regering vågar man inte lägre bedriva det. Det man byggde upp under flera års opinionsarbete innebar att alla partier fick en grön agenda. I brist på opinion inom det området vill nu flera partier ta avstånd till miljöpolitik och även ingångna politiska avtal med MP (M, samma artikel). Samma sak hände i NATO-politiken och CETA-politiken, ingen vågar bilda opinion. Plötsligt, som ett trollslag upplevs det som att till och med MP är OK med att bli medlemmar i NATO.

I någon mening måste kedjan till politisk framgång vara att först bygga opinion för ens idéer och sedan tillhandahålla dem med stark övertygelse. Opinionsarbetet innebär att man får utrymme att visa att ens egna politik är bra för samhället och den enskilda utan att begränsas till 5-sekunders-journalistik.

Valet 2018 är redan kört. Jag tror att M och SD kommer att samarbeta, dom har samma politiska inriktning. Sverige kommer att uppleva 4 dåliga politiska år som sedan måste städas. Kristersson kan fortsätta att suga ut välfärden och den nyligen anlända flyktingströmmen får en jobbig period. Men det innebär också att de som lyfter SDs bruna politik till skyarna kommer att möta ett parti som står till höger om M och som inte direkt bjuder på någon välfärd för de pengar som inte går till nyanlända och skydssökande men som samtidigt inte kan radikalt kasta ut alla asylsökande hur som helst. Precis som MP inte kunde komma in i samarbetsregering och besluta om en övergång till fosilfritt inom 3 år. Kanske en M-SD regering som får visa syna fula trynen skulle vara nyttigt för att ruska om människor att engagera sig i humanistiska och framtidsvisionära krafter. Kanske det innebär att de andra partierna kan inse att man behöver både politik och opinion för den politiken för att bli framgångsrik i ett val.

De som i dag bedriver opinion är SD som dessutom spelar på vår rädsla för det okända. Andra partier måste möta upp där, möta med egen opinionsbildning, jobba med mötet med det okända och sätta ljuset på spöket. De unga ensamkommande jag möter, och det är flera, är ofta bra killar men också så otroligt tonåriga att det blir kliché. Oavsett om dom kommer från grannbyn Somalia eller Afganistan. Tonåring är tonåring. Mer än så är det inte.
