Managed to resurect my #fairphone that went for a good dive in my back pocket, when I fell into a water trench (sloot).

It was completely soaked (and so was I), so nice to be able to take apart all components so they can dry properly <3

Happy ending for an emberassing moment :P

Thank you for reminding me why i prefer copyleft. :-D
Indeed! :like

Do you have a collection of similar resources for awareness of internet issues? (e.g: dark patterns, etc)

Apt-get Shirt is back!

We've started this project to create nice looking #swag to promote #FLOSS projects out there (even the smallest ones), and to share the profits form sold #merchandise with those projects. Some of you might remember us from last year's campaign where we crowdfunded and produced some #shirts. Due to other priorities and some complications, we had to suspend the project for some time, until today. During the last weeks we've been working on setting up our new web-shop and preparing for the re-launching of the project.

Especially for the re-launch all shirts are now 10% off! As always 50% of the profit will be shared with the projects each #t-shirt represent. Our shirts are made from #fair-trade #organic cotton where decent living wages are paid to the workers. Our designs are hand #silkscreen printed using water-based inks, giving the best quality, no peeling nor plastic feel.

Soon after the crowd-funding campaign we've realized that outsourcing the shirt printing process is very expensive when producing for such a niche market (unfortunately #FOSS folks ain't mainstream). Especially when we want to be able to produce small amounts for the tiniest projects out there. We are now able to use a small friendly silk screen print-shop which is great as long as it lasts - sadly, gentrification will soon force closure upon that location. Our goal and most desired situation is to run a small scale print-shop in our own home workshop. Therefor any initial profits from the relaunch will go into the equipment we need to become fully independent, allowing us utter freedom which is the fuel for real creativity.

We hope this time around we will manage to be more determent, more active and make the project a long lasting success with new (surprising) designs for more projects.

Wow. thats cool. We change the idea for our house :P?
@muppeth I just dicovered that in order to get the new theme update, you have to change the actual theme to another one, then reselect beeroot. If you don't do that, then the theme doesn't get updated. Is that the normal way?
@meaz what? I dont knwo if i understood but might be some bug or something. It did work for me ok.
merci / thanks / gracias @muppeth :-)
Pinned apps default

!Hubzilla Support Forum
Is it possible to have selected apps pinned to navbar by default for the whole hub?
So going with an own fork for now, but still wondering if there is a way to make this feature available for other in the future. What about creating a plugin to manipulate those .apd files? Is there a way to do that?
I've just added a hook 'get_system_apps' which is passed the array of discovered (and parsed) system apps. You can create a plugin to manipulate this array in any way you want. It should arrive in dev in a day or two.
wow Mike you are the best!
changing default icon set

!Hubzilla Support Forum Another question: is it possible to change the default fa icons for the entire hub? I've been trying to find where the default $icon value for network or channel are set without much luck.
Most are coded into the UI templates and changing icon sets is a theme decision. Some of these templates get icon hints from code (the icon name with the 'fa-' removed). At one point we had a jquery icon translator but it became un-maintainable and was abandoned. For single icon renames, I think you'd basically want something like


To swap out font|fork-awesome with another icon suite entirely would require a theme with its own templates.

Perfect! just what I was looking for :)

Edit: One thing I'm still considering - if someone wants to change an icon to one of the icons replaced globally via the 'manage apps' they will not be able to as 'fa-something' will always be 'fa-somethingelse'.

Wierd insect

Came across an odd little bee-like insect with a long snout hovering over this thistle's flower.
Never seen such a creature before..

@prep  I believe it's a Hubzilla feature called Community Tagging.  If you enable it on your HZ channel, the "Add Tag" option will appear in the per post menu. It does appear to add the tag to the main post (at least on Hubzilla).
