Hubzilla
a decentralised community server

Trying to remember these three four words.

#Hubzilla could use a draft mode. I just lost a post.

1. Most days my muscles are sore from working out, constantly building up, pushing forward. Strange feeling, but not unwelcome.

2. Edges of the spine of my bonded-leather Bible are wearing through. Might be time to buy another one, especially since the Portuguese language underwent another revision a few years ago.

3. My two big personal info managers have become the #BulletJournal and #TiddlyWiki, for some time now, the former for some 13 months.

4. Too bad I can't embed #Hubzilla on my site like I did with #Muut. I much prefer it to that one.

5. Still miffed that #TiddlySpace is shutting down. No good option there.

6. A couplet from the hand of Y.T, based on Job 37.13.
Now the rod, now mercy, falls the rain,
God makes it find its mark, for loss or gain.


7. A verse. "So we rebuilt the wall, and the entire wall was joined together up to half its height. The people were enthusiastic in their work" Nehemiah 4.6. Enthusiasm and unity accomplish much.

How can I access the complete list of tags in my channel?

Have narrowed down my social interactions online, basically, to Hubzilla.

Posts on my/our sites get posted automatically to Twitter and FB, but I've about abandoned those, plus some open-source options as well. I don't even have the Twitter cross-post plugin from Hubzilla set to automatic anymore.

I was using Muut, but speaking to the air. Have set my blog page with Muut software embedded as private, just to get it out of the way for now.

Known allows me to post to the first two above without going there, and especially to groups and pages on FB, so I've been doing that. Another step away from seeing any of it.

Still in a couple of yahoo groups. I do post some links there, as allowed.

Any thoughts on positives or negatives of restricting or allowing others to view one's connections? My setting allowed anyone to view. I reset to allow only myself to view. What are pluses and minuses, if any?

@Redmatrix / Hubzilla Support Channel+ (Did I put this in the right place?)

In the settings is this: "Expire other channel content after this many days."

I understand by the word "expire," that the content referred to is deleted. I'm not sure what is meant by "other channel content." Does that mean content by my connections? Are any of my posts or comments removed? Not sure what actually happens here. Enlightenment desired.

I seldom tweet directly on Twitter anymore. I still get some of my news there, but am even weaning away from that. I keep my accounts, retweet some, do the auto-tweets from #Wordpress and #Hubzilla. (So most of my tweets start elsewhere—like this one.) Like FB, #Twitter is squeezing the user, making choices for him and imposing viewpoints. Sorry, I choose to go elsewhere.

(This is true also for one host of an open-source social medium, so I'm backing off from it, too.)

@Redmatrix / Hubzilla Support Channel+ Friendica or RedMatrix, one, had the option to choose where to land (say, instead of /network to go to /channel/xyz) when switching between channels. I have not found that option here, is it available on #Hubzilla?

Suggestion for #hubzilla: Remove, if possible, the expand/collapse feature for preview. Not needed. Actually, it's a nuisance.

This isn't a bug, so I didn't go to github with it. @Redmatrix / Hubzilla Support Channel+

I'm sending content to Twitter, where QBT began, from #Hubzilla, on this account. Working very fine. I'm glad to get away from Twitter for the source to generate content. Domain name not resolved, has returned to the little html page I did. That's OK.

Now if I could find a way to offer email subscriptions, preferably through Hubzilla. (The reality is that not many are going to register here.) I tried one of those services that send you an email when the site changes, didn't work. Ideas?

Still wishing somebody would come up with the word/character count ... maybe one of these days.

Overall, am enjoying Hubzilla, seems quicker on its feet, has a good feel to it. I've pretty much moved my microblogging and spill-over ideas and links to here. No doubt my friends are groaning at that.

I've not tried it yet, but I think it also recognizes line returns. At least, the preview respects them. That bodes well for poetry, if so.

#TiddlyWiki has a feature to be able to list in a tiddler all the tiddlers with specific tags:


<<list-links filter:"[tag[productivity]]">>


Is anything like this possible in #Hubzilla?

Is it my imagination or are the URIs in #Hubzilla shorter than red? I'd love to see it grab title and first part of text body myself, but I guess there's a reason for string of characters.

  • Cloudy and drizzly day kept temps down, dampened noise and movement, seems like, in the city. Glorious.
  • Almost a month with #BulletJournal (started on the 1st), have kept it up well, #productivity up significantly. Am well pleased. Think I'll keep it.
  • Wrote this on Twitter SermonLines: A sermon is an act of hope, an attitude of faith, a conviction that God can reach a wayward heart and that the Good News will save someone.
  • My question for the webmaster: If an uploaded #TiddlyWiki is loaded completely when a visitor goes to the site, will that elevate the usage on the host? My sites are so popular ...
  • Recommended to asmallorange on Twitter that they offer #GNUsocial and #Hubzilla as preinstalled programs. For microblogging they had three old items.
  • The Lord is good, and only good he does; / Why don't we see? Why isn't the world abuzz?
  • "When you seek me in prayer and worship, you will find me available to you. If you seek me with all your heart and soul, I will make myself available to you,’ says the Lord" Jeremiah 29.13-14a NET.

Does #Hubzilla have the option to use one's own background image? Just wondering. I'm using the bluegrid at the moment, but I think it may get tiresome on the eyes before long.

I'm looking forward to finding a use for the "Set forward date" before long. :)

I replaced the URL in the #redmatrix bookmarklet with my new #Hubzilla channel, and it's working. So I can still stay on Opera, use Hubzilla, and have a bookmarklet. I'm good.

Installed the Firefox toy for Hubzilla and it seems very nice. Not enough yet to entice me back to FF.

Officially on #Hubzilla, thanks to Keith. Now let's take it for a spin.
