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.

Enjoy this episode by @OnTheMedia

@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

Just found out about this resource...

It might be my new favorite Financial Dictionary. I liked Investopedia long ago, but they got too annoying for me to use when trying to link to definitions of things I write. I don't want people to suffer that site if they clicked a linked word.

This story is the kind of problem that motivated me to start a better finance business.

The words Fiduciary Duty (and the utter lack thereof) come to mind when I read this NYT article.

Migration from Google Takeout g+ to some Federated social system

@Doc Edward Morbius Hello, we've never had prior contact.

I asked @Shelenn Ayres about this topic recently and your name was suggested.

I'm in a conversation with a g+ contributor I really admired to see how his migration effort was going. He's a prolific photojournalist (and IMHO a brilliant one). He seems to be struggling with getting his content from Google to somewhere else.

Is there a system with a conversion tool to go from HTML or JSON exported posts and linked attachments (photos, etc.), directly into Friendica, Diaspora, Mastodon, etc.?
@Michael Rupp Hi, apologies for the late response, I've been slammed.

Short answer: Yes.

There are a few options.

There are some platforms (not necessarily Federated) which can import content directly. This includes blogs (WordPress and Blogger, directly, others with some work), WikiFactory, PASHpost, and numerous others (I can't keep track, though there's a good list at https://old.reddit.com/r/plexodus particularly if you check the "Data Migration" category).

These are going to be the easiest options.

There are also options for using scripts or other tools to migrate content. There are numerous examples of this, with @Michael K Johnson, @Filip H.F. "FiXato" Sla... show more

5 Easy Ways to Spot a B.S. News Story on the Internet

Fantastic. I don't know who sent this to me, but it is wonderful. #FakeNews

Funny thing is I think I could build a solid argument that 4 out of 5 of those rules-of-thumb are wrong.

Some thoughts I've previously had about News (esp. financial news)

If a tree doesn't fall in the forest
but somebody was there to hear it fall
does it make a noise?
