  • Rolle Rückwärts in München: Diese Fragen sollte man sich stellen
    Bereits diesen Mittwoch soll die Entscheidung fallen: München will bis 2021 die Nutzung des GNU/Linux-Desktop-Clients “LiMux” beenden und damit ein erfolgreiches Leuchtturmprojekt beenden. Ich habe dazu einen ausführlichen Artikel auf Netzpolitik.org veröffentlicht. Bürger haben ein Recht darauf, dass der Stadtrat verantwortungsvoll und professionell arbeitet. Angesichts der Tragweite der Entscheidung sollte auf jede der folgenden Fragen […]

During this time we put a lot of efforts in polishing existing features and developing new functionality which is crucial to the success of our users and customers. As promised, everything we do is Free Software (also called Open Source), licensed under the terms of the GNU […]
  • Werkzeugkasten Freie Software
    Nach viel Arbeit, die dank einem tollen Autoren-Team und Herausgeber mindestens genauso viel Spaß gemacht hat, freue ich mich das der Werkzeugkasten Freie Software veröffentlicht wurde.

  • Moved to the git master and there it seems to work :-) A more general question. I had a quite general error in the log, just a 500. Is there a debug mode or something? Couldn't find anything in the doc, but it might be useful the next time.
  • Thanks. Btw, I just added my first contact. Afterwards my profile page was blank and I got a 500 in the apache log. After removing the contact the profile page worked again. But using Friendica without contacts is a bit pointless ;-) I use the latest stable version friendica-3.5.1 and the contact I added was another Friendica account. Any idea?
  • Hm, the Friendica's global directory (http://dir.friendi.ca) seems to be offline. Is this only temporarily or is it gone forever? Just wondering because today I gave Friendica another try after a few months of absence. cc @heluecht maybe you know more :)
