Most of us tend to the engeneering perspective with the focus on technical aspects. IT people often miss the social and real world aspects.
Dear friends of Friendica and Hubzilla

as a kind of "last call" I would like to remind you of our anual Friendica/Hubzilla-Meeting in Zwenkau at the Lake at the weekend of the 5./6. August.

This is not really a neutral 'default cover photo'.

if you don't like the photo on your profile, change it. If you don't like the default photo, change it.  

Maybe add a dozen different photos and cycle through them. Maybe draw some random vector art. Maybe load a framebufer with the contents of the Linux kernel. I don't know. What do you want? Submit a pull request.
Hi @Mike Macgirvin+, I changed the picture already ;-)

1. There are two different methods to manage my privacy: permission roles and access control

Mostly correct. At the base level we have permission limits and access control. If you have anything in the access control list, it takes priority. If you remove everything from the access control list, the limits take priority (see #4). The 'public' selection in the ACL tool basically removes everything from the access control list. Permission roles define the defaults, but you can often over-ride these for any published thing.  So if you've got a 'mostly private' channel, you can still make something public, and if you've got a 'mostly public' channel you can still make things private by using the ACL tool. But by default the ACL tool will be preset for your preferred way of interacting.  

2. The different permission roles define the permission limits. I can use predefined roles or edit individually any permission setting by choosing the 'expert/custom mode'.

Almost. Permission roles in fact set all kinds of different things to implement the named role. Such as setting default limits, whether or not there is a default ACL (usually the Friends group), and whether or not to automatically approve connections, and what permissions to give new connections. There are technically three tables working together. Limits, the default ACL, and connect permissions. Additionally there are obscure settings such as 'auto-approve', hide online presence, show in directory, and auto-add new connections to your Friends group. All of these settings are available in expert/custom mode, but using the named roles makes it much easier to get what you want without a lot of fuss.

3. I can change these permissions for individuals or guest tokens, but I cannot deny permissions which are set by my permission role. I can only give more permissions to an user.

This is probably correct.

4. When there are is no access control for a published thing, the permission limits apply.


5. I.e. when I share a new item I can set the access control to this item. I can choose who can see this (public, individuals, groups)by using the lock. How is this list I can choose from restricted by my permission role?

The permission role usually predefines what the ACL contains. The word 'public' will change depending on the permission limits for that type of object, but indicates that the ACL has zero entries. For instance if the limit is 'everybody in the network', you should see that displayed instead of 'Public'.

For most of the roles, you will have either 'public' or the 'Friends' group chosen in the ACL depending on whether the role is more public or is restricted/private. If you are using expert mode and have modified the default ACL, your custom access list will be automatically selected in the ACL tool.

Hope this helps.

Sandor Katz and the Art of Fermentation

Sandor Katz and the Art of Fermentation

Sandor Katz has been enchanted by fermentation, the mysterious process by which microbes transform food and drink, for some two decades. Since making his first crock of sauerkraut, his fascination with fermentation has broadened, deepened, and he now travels the world giving workshops. Based in Tennessee, his books including 'Wild Fermentation' and the encyclopaedic 'The Art of Fermentation' have helped many thousands of people to get started with making their own ferments, experimenting with flavours, fruits, vegetables, spices... and microorganisms.

Dan Saladino travels to Sandor's forest home in rural Tennessee to meet Sandor, hear his story, and discover for himself the transformative, delicious potential of these mostly simple culinary processes.

Snow day
It's our one day of the year snow day today. About twice as much than in the photo below.

I like that we get snow every year, but it is generally only for one or two days for the winter.

When Japanese Beetles attack
It's that time of the year when the Japanese beetles have returned.
You can see evidence of their handiwork towards the top of my Linden tree.

As of yet, I haven't found a safe and sane way to control them.  Soapy water works well on most insects.  However, it is a bit more difficult to do this on a 40-50 ft tree vs a rose bush.  

There are pesticides that the tree can absorb, but every one I have found is also toxic to honey bees.  It is no coincidence that in the last few years, I have seen fewer and fewer honey bees, and more Japanese beetles.  Last year, I only saw four or five honey bees.  This year: zero.  Between the city government spraying for the beetles, and homeowners, they have all but wiped them out within the limits of the town I live in.

“El Rif nunca encontrará la paz mientras nuestras reivindicaciones no sean satisfechas”
El 7 de julio de 2017, al anochecer, convocadas por un llamamiento en las redes sociales, cerca de 300 mujeres se movilizaban, en la plaza Maréchal, en Casablanca, para demandar la liberación de los detenidos políticos del Hirak. “En pie contra el encarcelamiento político, ¡estamos dispuestas!”, habían anunciado en las redes sociales. Estudiantes, militantes, madres de familia y mujeres de todas las edades acudieron a la cita.
