American Football is getting started, so...

#FantasyFootball is getting going too. If anybody on #Friendica #Mastodon #Diaspora #Prolerma #Pixelfed #GNUsocial or any #Federated #ActivityPub user on earth wants to try it, I can be the Commissioner.

I've run leagues in the past and I set the points so that it's hard for a skilled person with advanced game knowledge to have an advantage, and beginners have a real chance at winning. In the past, I did leagues with buy-in and free to enter. Both are equally fun. The buy-in leagues had trophies and all the buy-ins were paid out in prizes; any manager had 50:50 odd's of winning back their buy-in.

Notes to yourself and privacy...

If you make notes or use #GoogleKeep you should know about this #Masterpiece in progress. The work of @Carnet is delivering a Note taking app called #Carnet for our new treacherous age of information. I access mine via my private #Nextcloud server, but they have other ways too. Register at https://carnet.live/index.php/apps/registration/ and access via the mobile app, web browser or desktop program.

Death & Taxes

I've done my taxes since the only option was paper filing and hand-writing in the numbers. Until a few years ago, I thought the IRS was the problem. I know Accounting firms are the problem. I use https://www.freetaxusa.com/ now.

@Ingo Jürgensmann I see you in the global directory,
All (friendly) creatures welcome! Free registration. Server located in Germany. As a registered user on Nerdica.Net you are also able to use XMPP (Jabber) under the same address and with your password. Get the best of free and open networks at Nerdica.Net! 😀


I tried getting Jabber to work a couple of months ago. I gave up. Do you have instructions for how to achieve this feat of technical prowess?
What are the the issues you've faced with XMPP/Jabber? Is it in general or getting XMPP work with Friendica?
Theirs this history of it.
https://github.com/friendica/friendica/issues/6636

But I remember trying to get a Jabber server working for my Nextcloud server over a year ago and never did it right. For that one, I gave up because they have a native system they call "Talk" which is a Spreed type system.
Well, in fact it is just a matter of where the user data resides and how you can access it.

For Friendica I'm using a external auth script for my Prosody XMPP server that queries the Friendica database. As described in that Friendica issue, it is important to have BOSH working properly. For Prosody you'll to also add some trusted list for the domains you want to use with the BOSH connection.

For Nextcloud it's basically the same.

Be aware that Nextcloud Talk uses foreign cloud services unless you are hosting your own TURN server and such, which can become a mess to setup.

For Nerdica you can find some information here:

- https://nerdica.net/display/a85d7459-105c-59e0-fa1b-ed0595618689

Because you are using ejabberd there is not much I can help with specific details in configuration.
The nextcloud has 3 options, I took the dummy option. I'm too ignorant to really know the trade-offs. I'll be looking at your suggestions in the coming weeks. Thanks for your help so far.

Uhm, well, that the settings for Talk addon, not for the Javascript XMPP client.
For the XMPP addon you may need to fill in the following settings:
- XMPP domain
- BOSH URL, like: /http-bind/
- API URL, like: https://yourdomain.org/apps/ojsxc/ajax/externalApi.php
- Secure API token should be filled

I'll bet #Trump #voters didn't think they were getting this...

#Inflation hurts a lender.
"This has led to a #Fed that is far more concerned about keeping down inflation (a concern of #bankers) than the full #employment portion of its mandate."

Suppose you #borrow $50,000 in a year that you were paid $40,000/year. Inflation and mandated COLA pay raises makes your earnings go to $60,000/year. You aren't richer because your milk, bread, gas, and other things are more expensive too, but your loan is still $50,000 on their books. The bank feels like they lost $20,000.

Education in K-12 is an incidental byproduct of American Public Schools

A #school's #Principal, #Superintendent, and #Board / #Committee are basically reproductive organs of societies status quo.

They come from within a culture expressly for the purpose of reproducing that culture. A School Board (elected by a tiny minority of society who are in-the-know), are typically made up of the local royalty; wealthy people who control industry and decide what type of workforce they need to crank out of our #PublicSchool's. The Superintendents serve at... show more
