Hey Mastodon server administrators!

A lot of new users are wanting to use the "what's happening" feature to see what kind of public posts are made on your server. You might want to switch it on?

You can switch it on by going to Preferences > Administration > Site Settings, and tick the box marked "Allow unauthenticated access to public timeline", then click "Save changes".

Also, I would strongly advise you to NOT tick the box marked "Include federated content on unauthenticated public timeline page". All this second box does is fill your "what's happening" page with posts from other people's servers, and it doesn't really help people know what your server is like.

Thanks again! I'm sorry, I think I replied hastily to a message which you then updated with a fuller explanation.

Apparently, we are sending 8000 troops on a friendship and security mission to Europe? That's a lot of friendship.

I see lots of new users asking about or for features on, for example, Mastodon. I would like to see the Bio when I hover over community profiles in # #. At the moment, all that displays is the username which isn't much use if I don't know the person.

There are people on Twitter bitching about Elon Musk buying the platform and then sending him tweets basically baiting him. Is that so they can come to the Fediverse and cry "See He banned me!"? I don't get it? Poke a dog with a stick and it'll bite you. ðŸĪĶ‍♂ïļ

Also some(most) people don't know how the internet works , its magic. I've seen it with my bosses, telling them something could and was going to happen, them ' no it can't' and then happening. Obviously they were right and something strange happened , twice , thrice and then we changed as I said and stopped happening. Internet like god works in mysterious ways.
You know, I literally kinda said that a couple of hours ago. I gave someone a URL to copy-n-paste and send to someone else, and they responded with, "I dunno how to do that?" I was like, "So you're on the web every day posting pictures and crap, and yet you don't know how to copy and paste a URL? Are you winding me up?"

I still have my account, just login once or twice a day as always to read what I want.

I do have another account @dick_turpin. I'm a bit tamer on Mastodon. This account spews out to Twitter and allows me to be a bit more, umm? Naughty? I own this instance, so the only one that can shut me up is me on here. :-D
Ryan Ridenour friendica (via ActivityPub)
Nice! I'll follow the other one too.
Good idea. You might also want to follow @Ken Fallon (PA7KEN, G5KEN) poke him with a stick although he will try to beg you for content for HPR Hacker Public Radio. Ken's a great guy, I've met him a fair few times.

Loving all the people doing introduction posts on Mastodon (Fediverse) reminds me of the intro posts on #

I don't think I'll make any more purchases via Klarna sick to death of the emails and text messages warning me that ÂĢ15.00 is coming out of my account.

So while I agree it's good to see all these Twitter users coming over to Mastodon and the Fediverse, I am slightly saddened that they are doing it because they feel they have no choice rather than making a conscious decision to embrace freedom. Still "Every cloud...." and all that. #

Waiting to see how long it takes for mastodon.social to fall over with all this sudden influx. If only Ex-Twitter folk knew how Federation worked? If you're in the UK join mastodon.org.uk you can still Federate to .social users and it would ease their load.

I'm not bothered coz I have my own # instance. If you're leaving Twitter follow me on my increasingly default account of: https://castlecannon.house/profile/srednivashtar or https://mastodon.org.uk/@dick_turpin

This morning while walking Charlie, a small van pulled onto the entrance and sat there on the other side of the busy Ind Est road that we needed to cross; "You watch, the minute we start crossing Charlie that arsehole is going to reverse." three feet from the rear of his vehicle, on came the reversing lights.

Further down the road is a unit with a large car park round the back with a large empty area in front of the building but hey, where did twat # want to drive his car? Yep. Right where Charlie and I were!

Seeing LOTS of people reactivate their Fediverse (Mastodon, Frendica, PLeroma) accounts last night and this morning, maybe even one or two will migrate to #? Not sure why everyone is jumping ship.

This is an interesting story https://www.theregister.com/2022/04/20/valuelicensing_microsoft_court/
I'm sure something is missing from this report though? While ValueLicensing is missing out on potentially buying old licences to resell, I would have thought it was more beneficial for customers to surrender those licenses in return for a discount on M365? Indeed, eventually, ValueLicensing will run out of licenses to sell anyway? Maybe that's why they're suing?

Just found out that it's really easy to send text messages to a pager using a simple #. It works and it's really easy.

Are they using 2way pagers or still running old POCSAG?
@madcap
LFB are still using Motorola FLEX for callout but Airwave (an encrypted TETRA scheme) for messaging back to Brigade control. Some other Brigades use POCSAG, but they generally now all now use Airwave for anything transmitted back from appliances.

There is less need for secrecy for the Fire Brigade as isn't exactly a secret when something is clearly on fire..

A wider problem for blue light services here being that the Airwave infrastructure is nearing EOL..

@madcap
I worked at the bat wings when FLEX was developed. It allows for 2way with reFLEX but can be used as broadcast only. I was never a fan of FLEX but reFLEX caused the cellular providers to see that there was money to be made selling data instead of just voice minutes. It was good for that reason.
@madcap
in UK Motorola Solutions run Airwave *and* are the only main provider for the planned LTE-based Emergency Services Network (no other tech company in the entire country really wanted the business, nor has the expertise to deploy such a system, other then British Telecom who are providing the LTE infrastructure via EE (it is shared with the civilian network but with higher priority)

@madcap
madcap mastodon (AP)
well, security isn't only about privacy or secrecy. The fact that you can easily spoof messages is a big problem in many scenarios.
the UK services only give away "one piece of the jigsaw" on their remaining pager messages so it would be very difficult to create false calls that way as there are other authentication methods - its far easier for malicious folk to just make a hoax 999 call (or even just start a real fire)

So my QNAP TS-251B is fixed. Not quite sure how tbh. I read a write-up that walked you through a reset but advised that it would wipe the drives. Luckily, I could still access the NAS from the cloud so downloaded all the important stuff. anyway, I bit the bullet and pressed reset and the voice said "Advanced Reset started" after a reboot, the NAS was back and so was my content \o/
Had to re-implement my personal configuration such as fixed IP etc but well chuffed it didn't wipe the drives.

Thomas mastodon (AP)
Good news! That's a great example why I have at least 2 backups.
Yeah, I'm thinking of getting another NAS to backup the TS-251B. I'd like the TS-364, but that's a bit overkill for home usage.
