Sorry, this blast from the past is German language only.

Moin an euch alle,

in den letzten Tagen bin beim Aufräumen über ein paar alte Radiobeiträge von mir gestolpert, die ich auch als Selbst-Motivation hier einfach mal zweitverwerten möchte. :)

Dieser erste Beitrag aus meinen gut 5 Jahren Community Radio liegt mir besonders am Herzen, es war der erste Beitrag bei dem ich das Gefühl hatte, meinen Stil gefunden zu haben. Wenig selber sagen, Klänge und O-Töne für sich sprechen lassen. Ich bekam viel Kritik, daß man schon genau hinhören muß, um mir zu folgen. Aber es gab auch Stimmen, die genau das mochten. Später habe ich dieses Stilmittel noch verdichtet und Sendungen gebaut die entweder zum aktiven und intensiven Hören einluden oder auch einfach nur als anregender Hintergrund laufen konnten. Genau das würde ich gerne wieder aufleben lassen. Es fehlt mir. Sehr.

Eigentlich war ich nur als Gast bei dieser Performance der legendären Cottbuser Band Sandow. Das Ganze hat mich aber so sehr begeistert, daß ich noch während der Veranstaltung ins Radio gedüst bin, mir Mic und Recorder geholt  und O-Töne gesammelt habe. Damals war das alles noch per Kassette und im zweiten Schritt mit echtem Tonband bei dem Schnitte noch echt destruktiv und ohne Undo-Button waren.
Ich habe bis tief in die Nacht gearbeitet, auf dem Studioboden ein paar Stunden geschlafen, das fertige Band ins Fach gelegt zur Versendung im Stadtmagazin und bin heeme gefahren. Und habe dann am nachmittag als unser kleines Bürgerradio auf Sender ging mit pochendem Herzen das Ohr ans Radio geklebt.
Heute freut es mich, dieses Dokument zu haben. Die durch die Halle schwenkenden Rhythmen und die Lautstärke habe ich zwar nicht gut eingefangen (ich wünsche mir hätte ein Stereo-Mic zur Verfügung gestanden, oder 2 Mono), aber die Ekstase dieses begeisternden Erlebnisses ist mir sofort wieder gegenwärtig. Und ich spühre wieder die Blasen an den Händen, die ich mir sehr schnell zugezogen hatte.

Fun Fact: Das Gespräch mit Endruh Unruh fand in der Toilette statt. das war noch der ruhigste Ort der Halle. :)

Es juckt mich total, wieder aktiv zu werden. Mal sehen.


  
Als großer Neubauten Fan hab ichs mir natürlich gleich angehört :-) :like

Der RadioBeitrag gefällt mir vor allem wirklich im Stil sehr gut. montierte O-Töne und der gesprochene Kommentar der auch in der Tonlage etwas zu sagen hat - sich aber auch zurücknimmt und sich nicht auf alles draufsetzt.

Bitte wieder anfang mit der Produktion von neuen Beiträgen !

Björk. From her first record called "Björk" that she recorded at the age of 11. She refused the offer of a follow-up record, used the money to buy a piano and compose songs on her own.

No, that's how I first "met" her. I still remember vividly. My task was doing the dishes. My mother did not like it, but I used that chance and listened to the radio. An interview with The Sugarcubes was on. The interviewer was all fascinated by Björk, how quiet she spoke in opposition how loid she was on stage. Later I found a live recording tape at a local shop, but did not like it, chaotic and badly recorded, did not get into it. Today I have listened to others and ... still strangely fascinating.
Next step was Debut. Another place, another station, but still this interviewer's fascination with Björk as an interview partner was evident. Don't remember anything more. The album did not click with me at the time, still prefered bands. Nirvana ruled my listening habits, I was an avid collector. Still got the ticket for Berlin 1994. Alice In Chains, Dirt and Jar Of Flies. Did not get house etc at all. I slowly became a fan with Post. To this day one of the most furious album openings of all times.

Attention all Hubzilla-admins, your action is required. Due to the recent news regarding github.com we have changed our git hosting provider to framagit.org. You need to update your git repositories to reflect this change, including your Hubzilla web document root, addon repository etc.

Bye, bye GitHub!
You all probably already noticed that GitHub was recently bought by Microsoft. See here https://blog.github.com/2018-06-04-github-microsoft if you have not.

After a brief orientation period the Hubzilla community decided to move the sourcecode to an independent, freedom-loving GitLab instance at Framasofts https://framagit.org/

To get the latest and greatest Hubzilla code, you need to point your installation to the new sourcecode location. This is pretty simple:

cd into your Hubzilla root directory and execute this command:
git remote set-url origin https://framagit.org/hubzilla/core.git

For the addons: cd into your Hubzilla addons directory (probably extend/addon/hzaddons) and execute this command:
git remote set-url origin https://framagit.org/hubzilla/addons.git

Please do the same for the widget https://framagit.org/hubzilla/widgets.git and theme https://framagit.org/hubzilla/themes.git repos if you already added those from GitHub.

The GitHub repos will not receive any updates anymore but will stay intact for a short transition period.
Issues and bugreports should be reported and discussed at https://framagit.org/hubzilla/core/issues for core and https://framagit.org/hubzilla/addons/issues for addon issues.

Silhouettes, an album by Klaus Schulze on Spotify

Here we go again, another new Klaus Schulze album. But as amazing as it seems, this is the first release with truly new music in a few years, recently we have been treated with quite a few very well and lovingly done re-releases, but he himself kept quiet. Unusual for someone who is infamous for releasing a 50-CD box with unreleased material along with several regular albums per year. Mind you, he is 70 and has been rather ill, so I take this album as a good sign for him personally.
To me it's a strong release. All four pieces. Klaus Schulze, who is known for his long and meandering synth pads has reduced his toolbox even further: this is a very quiet, almost beatless album, slow and very balanced. Very much a typical ambient album (or spacy Kosmische Musik if you really want to dig out those old stereotypes), in fact one of the best from that genre (and KS himself, who has helped to define that genre) I have ever heard. It sounds very balanced, peaceful and in unity with himself. No need to prove anything, just to enjoy the music. Track 2 has got some more sequenced passages, but they are not taking over, are only adding to the peaceful dynamics. Track 3 is adding a beat loop but only for a short while. This could in parts be the most "traditional KS" track of the album. Track 4 is the one that relies most on a quiet beat loop and sequencing, but it's still laid back enough to remain delicate and within the album's mood range despite being the most dynamic of the four.
The track titles also speak for themselves. An essential Klaus Schulze release. Very deep, emotional and beautiful. I also like the cover. A portrait of the artist as a heavy smoker. Very much KS, a very good portrait and I believe a first for him, such an intimate photo portrait on an album.
Oh and as I am a total lover of low frequencies ... there are many. Especially track 3 and 4 can be quite challenging for your listening equipment and might benefit from much less bass boosting than most other releases. Mind you, they are the first ones my otherwise really sturdy AKG 240 were outright unable to cope with my usual EQ setup range. Wow.

Klaus Schulze: Silhouettes
1. Sihouettes
2. Der lange Blick zurück
3. Quae Simplex
4. Chateaux Faits De Vent

A deluxe edition with CD, double vinyl (transparent red vinyl) and art print showing the famous KS portrait from the Mirage album, signed by the artist.
To me a KS autograph would have made me buy that one, but without I thought I'd go with the humble CD version.
Then I found that the flac download at Qobuz is available for €3,96 ... album bought.

The Man-Machine - Wikipedia


The Man-Machine (German: Die Mensch-Maschine) is the seventh studio album by German electronic band Kraftwerk. It was released on 19 May 1978 in Germany by Kling Klang Records and in the United States by Capitol Records. The album saw the group incorporate more danceable rhythms and less minimalistic arrangements. It includes the singles "The Model...

I have just learned that Matt Marks has died. I did not know him well, neither personally nor artistically, but he has earned my awe by adapting The Beatles' tape musique concrete piece "Revolution No. 9" for live orchestra and performing it with The Alarm Will Sound. What a name for an orchestra.
First, anyone who even kind of likes this strange  piece of structured sound can count on my sympathies. But Beatles fanatic that he was, Matt not only took on the unlikeliest track for a cover version, but also the one track that is the most unplayable and unimaginable for a life setting. He did it anyway and succeeded with grandesse.
I am sad that any further exploration of his own compositions and further work will now be in retrospect.
This is by far my favourite Beatles cover version of all time.  
Thanks, Matt. Thanks.

Hubzilla 3.4 Released!
For Hubzilla 3.4 we focused on overall usability improvements. A new permission role (social - federation) has been introduced. This is the most permissive role we provide and it aligns well with the capabilities of the protocols we federate with (diaspora, activitypub, ostatus).

An autosave functionality for posts and comments has been implemented. Posts and comments are now autosaved to the browsers local storage (no, we don't send your unfinished work to the server). If you accidentally reload your window or navigate somewhere else, you will not loose your work anymore. When you return back to your unsent post or comment, the text will be waiting there for you as if nothing happened. This functionality is enabled by default and can be disabled in additional features > post composition features settings if desired.

The technical skill level setting has been merged and streamlined with the additional features page. This makes it easier to adjust the skill level to a comfortable value.

Another important change to mention here is that the author menu has been moved from the item dropdown menu (bottom-right of posts and comments) to the author photo. All author related functions are now accessible directly by clicking the author photo.

Last but not least some of the redbasic theme schemas have been renamed to better reflect their purpose in the naming. The simple_* schemas are unmaintained at the moment and were therefore marked deprecated. If nobody from the community steps up and maintains them, they will be removed with the next release. Due to the renaming of the schemas you will have to set your schema again after your hub has been updated. This does not affect you if you are using the default schema (Focus).

Other notable changes:

  • Introduced trending tags for the public stream app
  • Implemented visible star status for starred posts
  • Fix issue where we were forced to log back in after leaving a delegated channel
  • Implemented last commented expiration setting for admins
  • Implement OAuth2/OpenIDConnect server
  • Chats are now saved obscurified in the DB (just like private mails)
  • Introduced a simple way to share links to wiki pages
  • The new member widget has been converted to a feature - it can now be turned on/off
  • Initial support for alternative sort orders on the cloud pages
  • Postgresql fixes
  • Introduction of the e-commerce/cart addon (beta - experimental)
  • Introduction of the fuzzloc addon - blur your browser location
  • Improved interoperability with mastodon (activitypub)
  • Numerous bugfixes and overall improvements


As always, a big THANK YOU! to all the translators and everybody who is helping to improve Hubzilla with each release.

Get it while it's hot!
https://github.com/redmatrix/hubzilla

To update an existing installation (installed via git) please execute util/udall from your Hubzilla webroot.
If you participated in the RC testing, remember to git checkout master (core and addon) before the update.

Some nights ago I noticed that we could hear loads of frogs through our opened balcony door. Imagine, they are about 1km away. :) So today I grabbed my binaural mics and the recording device.

Headphones are mandatory in order to experience the full 360° soundscape. Remember the artificial head recordings from the 70s? That's it.

This is the recording of a brook which sounded really nice. It is being lead through a pipe underneath the path, coming from the left (higher patter) and leaving the pipe on the right (lower patter). All above that you have got the sounds of an early spring forest.


And then the frogs. You could hardly hear anything else, and today they were really wild. My beloved also saw two grass snakes. I have never ever heard this many frogs in one place before.
  
Beautiful. Thank you!

When you register at Hubzilla you are presented with a choice of channel roles. There are
  • social channels with varying privacy settings
  • forums with varying privacy settings
  • feed channels
  • a soap box function for announcement only channels
  • group repositories

The docs explain the basics about what is what, but I was always missing a tabled overview. So I created one.


https://hubzilla.rocks/articles/tobias/hubzilla%252bchannel%252broles+an+overview

  
This will be handy. I'd share it but somehow the Link to Source is buggered.
This will be refined over time, this graphic is just a first quick and dirty draft done in LibreOffice Calc and will be updated into a native table.

That is going to be one crazy block of BBcode! And if history is any guide, it will become outdated rapidly. This is something we could probably generate automatically in the code. It could be accessible when people are selecting a permission role and would naturally stay up-to-date.

You are right, I made a mistake. Social does not have perms_auto, which I understand as autoconnect.

What I have not yet managed to find a meaning for is $ret['limits']. Any hint? :)

And "Default Collection" ... I believe that means connections are sorted into a default privacy group, the new name for collection? Yet that is - unfortunately - only configurable if I chose custom mode. Which for me is a huuuge reason to chose custom mode but ... ... ... maybe that should be moved to general access?
Or does that mean "Default permission group", which then is not reflected if I change the channel role.
(Note to self: Need to describe these default permission group roles as "follower, contributor, publisher", have never really looked into that before.)

    case 'forum_private':
                $ret['perms_auto'] = false;
                $ret['default_collection'] = true;
                $ret['directory_publish'] = false;
                $ret['online'] = false;
                $ret['perms_connect'] = [
                    'view_stream', 'view_profile', 'view_contacts', 'view_storage',
                    'view_pages', 'view_wiki', 'post_wall', 'post_comments',
                    'post_mail', 'post_like' , 'chat'
                ];
                $ret['limits'] = PermissionLimits::Std_Limits();
                $ret['limits']['view_profile']  = PERMS_SPECIFIC;
                $ret['limits']['view_contacts'] = PERMS_SPECIFIC;
                $ret['limits']['view_storage']  = PERMS_SPECIFIC;
                $ret['limits']['view_pages']    = PERMS_SPECIFIC;
                $ret['limits']['view_wiki']     = PERMS_SPECIFIC;

                break;

I have cloned this channel several times recently along with some others. All went well, except for this channel and one hub. There I am having very strange effects for this, and only for this channel.
  • at first the clone there changed to an ancient avatar
  • when visiting the clone's channel home I got "Profile does not exist"
  • No connections are visible, a test post was visible only to me instead of the main privacy group which I had selected
  • I tried several times, usually using the web form, but alsi a json file, also with and without old posts
  • I deleted that botched channel clone each time
  • Now it happened again, my primary account suddenly switched it's name from h.ear.t | tobias back to the old tobias, interestingly only in posts, likes etc, not in the profile or settings

I am a bit at a loss now. I uad already given up, my final attempt is now about 2 hours ago. Then I noticed the name change.
The log said "no uid" and zot handshake not possible because https and httpnwere not available. Everything is https.
Other channels from the very same hub did clone amazingly well, even syncing webpages and wikis. From the same source hub to the very same clone hub. So thrre must be something about this channel, even though it did clone perfectly to other hubs.
There is quite a bit of action on the hub where I want to clone to, so the log is very noisy.
What else could I do to debug? Now that my primary channel had been strangely changed a second time ...
ACLs also seem to have been changed, I could no longer post public as there was no option for that.
Is there a way to do a kind of channel config refresh? Or just change one setting temporarily and thrn change it back? How can I now check the validity of this channel? That option for publick posts returned once I reset the privacy option to mostly public.

I had already deleted that clone, so I re-imported it now.
No, /import and chosing that file did not help, too.
I just saw that now that new clone attempt also does not appear under /locs.
  
This connection's primary address is 'tobias@hubzilla.rocks'    
Available locations: tobias@literoticon.net, tobias@hubzilla.rocks, tobias@play.hubzilla.rocks
  
Yes, the other one is missing.

Just tested for the first time: It is possible to add custom fields to connections. Now I understood that this might be quite useful. I was especially thrilled that one could possibly directly call  someone by clicking on the green phone icon in the connections list.

This might need an enhancement though. If I enter a landline and  a mobile phone address, I will only be linked to the first number I entered, there is no way to chose.

I am pretty sure this is going to be a classic album. Classic like in Pet Sounds or Tago Mago, NEU!, My Life In A Bush Of Ghosts, Kid A, How To Pimp A Butterfly. Continuing where Kraftwerk left off and never considered to go.
This album will finally turn me into the Mouse On Mars connoisseur I was always destined to be.

Now that this album has dropped, I will finally be able to either stand by or to retract my claim and to vent my disappointment. Very first impression: I might be right. But such a positively overwhelming album does demand to take things slow, step back from the self assigned task of a public assessment and to fully retreat into the sonic spaces that are on offer. Only after building a meaningful relationship (or the inability thereof?) I will come back to this.
