@Music+  Summer evenings are made for reggae. We have just tested this hypothesis:

I still get goosebumps hearing the intro to magic bus after 47 years and thousands of listens.

[edit: never really cared for Tommy. Saw it on Broadway in New York which was a nice evening, but except for a few classic Townshend power chords and the novelty of a rock "opera" I thought it was pretty lackluster.]

#NoG20: Let’s Disc-Harrow G20 – RTF Call For Protests

#NoG20: Let’s Disc-Harrow G20 – RTF Call For Protests

We are young peasants, land-searching, reapropriating, cooperating and working in all types of agriculture-related fields around europe. we are determined to create alternatives to the agro-industrial-complex and capitalist globalization. we struggle for practical, local-based solidarity-networks with a conscience of the social and ecological issues related to the imperia of industry and their states. our agrarian fight is a long term and mostly localized one, but resistance for more autonomy and against authorities can also puncutally rise – and travel to express dissent.


Submitted to Enough is Enough

Note: Enough is Enough is not organizing any of these events, we are publishing them for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on.

We will make agricultural topics a content within the upcoming G20-summit-protests in Hamburg and beyond.

We believe that we’ve got to overcome the time of resource-destruction and cultural-war against small-scale-farming – as a matter of survival.
We declare ourselves critics of elite-led politics: good things come from below!

RTF vs. G20

The elites of G20 agreed in meeting in the harbour-city of Hamburg in july, so some of us agreed on meeting there as well, to bring up food- and agriculture-related issues during the protests. Mass-disobedience already seems to take shape with hundreds of thousands expected on demos and blocades of the summit and the harbour during the action days in july.

We call all farming-friends on supporting the protesters practically with food and logistics as only well-fed protesters can stop this summit!

The G20, an alliance of the dominant nation(confederation)s of the world will bring forward more agreements that don’t fit us. they might talk about “migration issues” but only with the aim of containing, seperating and managing peoples lives. They strengthen the freedom of markets and keep restraining the liberties of humans. “green-finances” as another key issue of their mafia-meeting are just another spectacular try in absorbing ecologist themes for capitalist and speculative monopoly-type-development. 

Their understanding of globalisation results in exploitation, forced work- and (peasant-)migration, war, climate-chaos as well as a rising dependance on the capitalist, energy-excessive and extractivist model. it’s big time for a new global riseup towards an ecologist, foodautonomous and anticapitalist future. Our strength stays the everyday struggle in working the land, the forrest and the seas. but we have to raise our voices in concrete jungles sometimes.  

The food- and health-issues remain central to give more independance to the people. small structures still feed the world and fight for local balances as all investigations could show. but agreements coming out of their summits have never significantly arranged the systematic injustice within food-sovereignity-issues on this planet. Their “gam.....

@Hubzilla Support Forum+  The ability to export your posts in monthly chunks is known about. I however don't see the mechanism for importing more than one. (Yes, if this works, the #egg count data will not be lost to the internet.)

As far as I recall last time I did that, you just keep importing files one-by-one.

Month by month, or even year by year if the size of each exported file is around 1 megabyte, I don't think that you will have problems.

now here's a question

 XertaTue, 25 Apr 2017 20:28:35 +0200 
People who've known me for some time will know that my progress along this road we're following Mike down is fitful. Those bursts of activity are usually triggered by outside forces and I've been pussyfooting around getting Hubzilla up and running for some time.

Today an outside force bumped into me. For the first time in ages I've been asked to consider doing a website for someone. This might be the push I need to get Hubzilla up and running. I don't know the full job yet but the woman in question's husband has the following website: Top Cat Fishing and "I want something like this".

So my first big question is: Is Hubzilla up to doing pages like the static ones on this site? (We will leave aside the question of whether I am up to it at this point).

The page content type itself is text/HTML, the layout is just the regular Zen template, done like this.

non-display of post

 XertaMon, 10 Apr 2017 10:50:31 +0200 
@Hubzilla Support Forum+ There are a series of posts that don't display for me (and also don't get removed from my unread posts list when selected). This is on RedMatrix so there may be nothing to do. An example: git post from Mike.

I suspect it's the tag:github.com,2008:Grit::Commit bit of the url that it's choking on.
 Wed, 19 Apr 2017 22:10:31 +0200 
The git pull has been done, but I don't have a new post to check yet. I will report when I have.

and produces a 404.

I was worried about that. Unfortunately converting foreign message-ids to base64 is a fair chunk of work and outside the scope of my current involvement with redmatrix - which has been essentially in a vegetative state and on morphine drip for the last year.

If you're interested in a quick and dirty fix: you can look at my last checkin there (1 line) and undo the urlencode and do a limited conversion to base64 just for notifications without touching anything else. In mod/display look for that encoding specifically and decode if it has been applied. A more complete solution would be to just base64 message-ids containing punctuation chars. I think you still have git repo rights there.

it happened again yesterday, the first attempt at cloning has reported two notices, one of which said: channel not found (or something similar), in the second attempt everything went ok.
It just happens to me that are always needed two attempts in the same new hub where  I'm cloning?

All ends well, okay. But the first failed attempt  definitely confuse people, then they go to negative publicity about cloning that does not work (but in truth it works). I think it is appropriate to reproduce this (or try to reproduce).

I always thought I type my password wrong the first time. I had the same behaviour when doing my test migrations. In the end I always had a working clone though.
