Mentions in comments

Good news! One of the oldest issues in diaspora*'s GitHub repo, the ability to @mention people in comments on posts, has just been fixed.

This pull request has been completed over several months by Senya, who used a crowd-funding campaign to enable him to work full-time on various key features for diaspora*. It took a lot of hard work to code it, and a lot of work from Benjamin Neff and others in reviewing it.

Now it has merged into diaspora*'s develop branch, it'll be tested further, and we hope to release it as part of our next major version so that it will be available to the entire diaspora* community.

Huge thanks to Senya, Benjamin and everyone else involved in getting this much-needed feature working in diaspora* once again! <3

How to help us test new features

Do you want to help make sure that this and other completed features doesn't cause delays to our next major release?

Although we always test new code as much as possible before it is merged into develop, we also test new features after they have been merged and before they are released, just in case anything has slipped through the review and testing process.

We're always looking for people to help test new features in the develop branch. If you feel confident about running diaspora*'s code, set up a pod using the develop branch instead of master.

Once you’ve set up your pod, start trying to break things! And give us feedback about anything unusual you find. :)

If you already run a pod, you can switch to develop so that you and your users can test it. Code in develop should already be fairly stable, so you shouldn't hit major problems, but we can't guarantee this, so make sure you're happy to run into problems before doing this. If you're feeling really adventurous, you can even pull individual PRs into your pod before they are merged!

Some days, I kick ass on BRR. Other days, I manage to bounce off every other damn car on the track.

And after successfully avoiding the jump that'll land you on the overpass for weeks, I finally give it a try just to do it. After smashing into the side a few times, I finally land on the overpass. And now, I can't manage to avoid that damn jump now. :/

If he can have some more nights like this (and he hasn't looked too bad so far this season to be honest), my opinion of him may change. It's way too early in the season yet though...

OK, a few email server questions for those in the know.

A default install by iRedMail has STARTTLS and SSL/TLS enabled for IMAP and only STARTTLS enabled for SMTP. I had always thought that SSL/TLS was the more secure protocol for email however, their documentation states that SMTPS is depreciated. From what I've read on the interwebz, STARTTLS should/could be considered insecure because the end user typically doesn't know if their connection has dropped to an unencrypted one. Is this correct?

I also have my postfix settings to force TLS connection on STARTTLS (port 587) as well as having the postscreen service monitoring port 25. And having postscreen running, forces port 587 to be used for SMTP. So, even if I was to use STARTTLS, my connection shouldn't drop to an unencrypted connection, right?

An extension to my "for the hell of it" post last night.

I recorded the data packets I heard on my scanner radio from the #ISS tonight.

Kinda pointless to try to hear these packets on my scanner but, still pretty damn cool. ;)

Added an old python script to make my #mpd #conky "interactive".
Basically, it shows a transparent image (directly over the album cover) until I hover over it. When I click the cover, it runs mpc toggle to toggle the play state. :)

Stages in the screenshot:
- mpd playing
- hovering over album cover
- clicking on album cover (just adds a little shadow that's difficult to see on this album cover...)
- mpd paused

ISS Data Packets

Data packets received from the ISS on my scanner radio. My old scanner radio can't do anything with the data packet but, it's still damn cool to hear it.

Yeah, I missed that picture all together.

But, the convenience of having my OTA channels in the slingtv app isn't worth $150 to me, I'll just continue to change the input on the tv to watch OTA. Now, if the airtv box has other functionality then maybe I'd consider it.

I wrote a #bash script to add random songs to my current #MPD playlist based on a simple search (i.e. genre, artist, year, ...).

It's not perfect but, it's working nicely for me. To be honest, it's mostly a wrapper for mpc that can continually run to keep adding songs.

Ohmerica by The Claypool Lennon Delirium from the album Monolith of Phobos

Ah-Omerica X 3

We know when you're sleeping and when you're awake,
and if you've been good you need not be afraid.
It's best not to question the things that you're told,
'cause we have got everything under con, under control.

Just Relax

And all of the tests that can shake our beliefs,
And if you don't like it well you can just leave.
Think George Washington evolved from an ape,
Then you should be locked up in the 51st state.

Ah-Omerica X 1

(We're all but dying?) the worlds on the brink,
that's just what the devil wants you to think.
Don't ever stop shoppin' don't ever give in,
If we stop shoppin', the terrorists win.

We know when you're sleeping and when you're awake,
and if you've been good you need not be afraid.
It's best not to question the things that you're told,
'cause we have got everything under con, under control.

Reading your mail and tapping your phone,
And if you don't like it we'll send in the drones.
Oh, say can you see, the twilight's last gleam,
Land of the free, the home of the naïve.

Ah-Omerica X 10

/u/jpope777 on How does drifting work ?

I think you are completely overthinking this.

Drift points and the cash earned from them are based on distance only. The angle and/or speed of the drift doesn't matter, just how long you drift.

The angle of drift only really affects your top speed. The greater the angle, the lower your top speed will be during the drift.

Nitro replenishment during a drift is lower than usage. If you drift while using nitro, you will be able to nitro longer at the cost of top speed.

Bob Dylan - What Good Am I?
Jake Kaufman - MFC - End Credits
