Ellie Goulding – Lights

I had a way then losing it all on my own
I had a heart then but the queen has been overthrown
And I’m not sleeping now the dark is too hard to beat
And I’m not keeping now the strength I need to push me

You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine It when I’m alone
And so I tell myself that I’ll be strong
And dreaming when they’re gone

‘Cause they’re calling, calling, calling me home
Calling, calling, calling home
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine It when I’m alone

Home

Noises, I play within my head
Touch my own skin and hope that I’m still breathing
And I think back to when my brother and my sister slept
In an unlocked place the only time I feel safe

You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I’m alone
And so I tell myself that I’ll be strong
And dreaming when they’re gone

‘Cause they’re calling, calling, calling me home
Calling, calling, calling home
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I’m alone

Home

Yeah, hee

Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights

You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I’m alone
And so I tell myself that I’ll be strong
And dreaming when they’re gone

‘Cause they’re calling, calling, calling me home
Calling, calling, calling home
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I’m alone

Home, home
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights

Home, home
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights

Home, home
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights

Home, home
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights

A purpose for every person you meet


In life you’ll realize that there is a purpose for every person you meet. Some are there to test you, some will use you, some will teach you, and some will bring out the best in you.
One of the most valuable principles a person may ever learn in their lifetime is that every person that is in their life, is in their life for a reason. Some people are in your life to be your genuine friend, and to just help you become the best you that they may possibly help you to become. Some people are in your life to test you, to show you that things may not always be what you think they may seem.
Some people are in your life to teach you. Sometimes we are full of gifts and talents that we have no clue that are inside of us, and some are put in our lives to help us to see these gifts out of our hearts and to develop them.
Some people are in your life solely for themselves. But it is these people who will also teach you many lessons….. Different people will teach us all different things, but in every lesson one must always remember that life is too short to hold on to anger and spite………..

What is going on in Ukraine

Ukrainian explain for us the situation. This is not propaganda or western media or russian misinformation : Just an ukrainian citizen trying to explain us what is going on…

The story is…

We had a president Yanukovich (sponsored by Russia). And trust me life wasn’t sweet with him! Few months ago after his another step to the Russian side, people went to the streets for peaceful protests. Protests turned into civil war in the center of Kiev. And now Yanukovich is guilty of that mass murder. Ukraine’s parliament has voted to remove president and set new elections to may. But Russia doesn’t like the fact that Ukraine is not under Russian pressure anymore. So, Putin sends Russians (they tell journalists that they are just locals who want to live in Russia) to Ukraine to set anti-Ukrainian protests in Eastern and Southern cities. Russia is trying to convince the world that Ukraine wants to be the part of Russia which isn’t truth of course. And now Russian troops have entered our country to provoke Ukraine into armed conflict.

So, the point is that we are Ukrainians (not Russians)! We have friends and relatives in Russia and we love them. But we don’t want to work for Russia or to turn to slaves of Russian Empire. We want to live in our own independent Ukraine and to decide ourselves to work with Russia, EU or USA.

All these people you see on the photo are real Ukrainians that live in Odessa. And they gathered together in the city center for peace! Thank you, my friends, for taking your time and reading this! And, please, spread the word!

Switzerland is the most innovative country

Switzerland is the most innovative country in Europe, comfortably ahead of second-placed Sweden, according to an annual study by the European Union.

Considering the small size of the population, researchers at Swiss higher education institutions produce an above-average volume of scientific publications. Moreover, these publications are considered by the international scientific community to be of extremely good quality. A side effect of this is that high-tech companies are drawn to the Swiss labour market and the many highly qualified workers in higher education and research.

Basic research in Switzerland is mainly conducted by higher education institutions. Swiss universities of applied sciences focus on applied research and work to establish close contacts between their laboratories and those within the private sector.

Cooperation between the private sector and higher education institutions has developed rapidly over the past ten years. In addition to the CTI’s own activities have also helped to create synergies between the public and private sectors. EU framework programmes explicitly encourage European-wide cooperation between universities, industry and SMEs. Swiss participation in these programmes is a major foreign science policy priority, although not the only one: efforts to internationalise Swiss research activities actually began back in the early 1950s. Since then, these efforts have been consistently strengthened through Swiss membership in the most important international research organisations as well as through Swiss participation in the main international research programmes.

 

 

How to connect your GnuSocial with Twitter

If you have your own GnuSocial, you can configure the TwitterBridge. This Twitter “bridge” plugin allows you to integrate your GnuSocial instance with Twitter. Installing it will allow your users to:

- automatically post notices to their Twitter accounts

- automatically subscribe to other Twitter users who are also using

- your StatusNet install, if possible (requires running a daemon)

- import their Twitter friends’ tweets (requires running a daemon)

- allow users to authenticate using Twitter (‘Sign in with Twitter’).

twitterbridge

Here is a How to step by step for connecting your GnuSocial account with your twitter. Step 1 to 5 is administration configuration.

1. Configuration in GnuSocial

Edit you config.php file (should be on your root directory of GnuSocial) and just add the following line

addPlugin('TwitterBridge');

Once it is done, upload it.

2. Creation of your Twitter app

Second step, you should create a twitter application. Go to https://apps.twitter.com/. If you are not connected to Twitter, sign in with your twitter account. Then clic Create New App

how to connect your GnuSocial with Twitter step 2

how to connect your GnuSocial with Twitter step 2

- Name : Your should invent a name for your application. Should be unique so, try to invent a unique name.

- Description : Write something to help you in case you have many applications

- Website : Type here the URL of your GnuSocial website.

- Don’t forget to read and valide the Developer Rules of the Road at the end of this form

- Clic on Create your Twitter application

201408181

3 Change the permission

Clic on API Key, then Mofify app permision to read an write.
Clic ont the Tab Permission and change permission to read and write

4 Create your access token

Clic API Key, and at the bottom of the page, Create my access token. Check that this token have read and write permission (waite a little and refrench the page)

5 Twitter bridge settings

Go to the admin panel of your GnuSocial. You should have Twitter option. Then enter :
- Consumer Key : put the API Key
- Consumer Secret put the API secret
- Application name

Now your users should connect with twitter.

6. Connect your account with Twitter

Now the most important step is not done. This is the easiest (if all previous steps was done correctly).
In your GnuSocial go to Setting > Twitter > Connect my Twitter account > Validate
It’s done.

 

 

I recommand to just leave the first option “send my notices to Twitter” on. That means that when you are going to write something public on your GnuSocial, that will post to your twitter account as well.

I don’t recommand to select “Subscribe to my Twitter friends here”. Except if you have a strong server.

Installing a new gnusocial

Few years ago was statusnet. And Statusnet was the federated social network. It was easy to install on on simple LAMP. we were in 2011 …

And diaspora was born and I discover friendica and redmatrix.

Now in 2014 I tryed gnusocial. Gnusocial is the continuation of statusnet. My experience at quitter.se was really nice. So I decided to install a gnusocial instance just to try and maybe do adopt.

First I notice that there is no documentation or very few. the only page I found was http://gnu.io/social/resources/code/

We must have ssh access and imagine lot ot things.

After persistance, I could install it and it is very satisfying. Nevertheless I have few unfinished questions.

- How to localize in french ?

- How to connect with twitter the twitterbridge didn’t want to work.

- How to set up the mobile version

- I couldn’t connect with mustard

 

 

 

How to install gnusocial ? ssh mode

Gnusocial is a twitter like software that you can install on your own server. The advantage of gnusocial over twitter is that it is federated. All gnusocial instance can communicate to each other. Like email or xmpp (jabber) you will have an Ostatus id like user@server.

First step is you don’t know what is gnusocial is to play with it. You have public

Installation :
Before going to the installation, let’s check the requirement
- php 5.4 at least
- ssh access is

Go to the directory where you will install gnusocial I will name the directory gnusocial
run this command
git clone git://gitorious.org/social/mainline.git .

Don’t forget the . (dot) at the end.

When it is done go to your new gnusocial
You should have a page like

No configuration file found.

I looked for configuration files in the following places:
/etc/statusnet/statusnet.php
/etc/statusnet/laconica.php
/etc/laconica/laconica.php
/etc/statusnet/localhost.php
/etc/laconica/localhost.php
/etc/statusnet/localhost_~cb/2/gnusocial.php
/etc/laconica/localhost_~cb/2/gnusocial.php
/home/../…/gnusocial/config.php

You may wish to run the installer to fix this.
Go to the installer.

click on Go to the installer.
You should have some permission to change just follow what is it mentioned
4 directories should have write access
chmod a+w gnusocial
chmod a+w gnusocial/avatar/
chmod a+w gnusocial/file/
chmod a+w gnusocial/background/

when it is done refresh the page (install.php)
A form will appear.
Just feel the form

  • Site name : what ever you want
  • Database Hostname : usualy it is localhost but not always
  • Database name (you have to create a database for that first or you should know the name of it
  • Database user
  • Database password
  • Administrator nickname that will be the admin account
  • Admin password
  • Type of site : Private : all will be hidden, single user (if you want only for you), community (ideal for a group, a class, a family etc..) , public (if you want a free registration for every body, that option need a strong server and administration care)

Choose community even if you will use it only for you. It is very easy to restrict registration. If you want to share you gnusocial with a friend, it will not be possible otherwise.

Why Linux Sucks

Linux exists but why is it still not used ? simply because it sucks. Look at drivers and hardwards problems. How about audio or videos editors  ? There is too many distributions softwares that are unfinished. How about games ? And how do you replace photoshop ?

 

That video dates of 2012 but I am sure in 2014 it is the same.

Le sud Nino Ferrer 1975


C´est un endroit qui ressemble à la Louisiane

A l´Italie

Il y a du linge étendu sur la terrasse
Et c´est joli

On dirait le Sud
Le temps dure longtemps
Et la vie sûrement
Plus d´un million d´années
Et toujours en été.

Il y a plein d´enfants qui se roulent sur la pelouse
Il y a plein de chiens
Il y a même un chat, une tortue, des poissons rouges
Il ne manque rien

On dirait le Sud
Le temps dure longtemps
Et la vie sûrement
Plus d´un million d´années
Et toujours en été.

Un jour ou l´autre il faudra qu´il y ait la guerre
On le sait bien
On n´aime pas ça, mais on ne sait pas quoi faire
On dit c´est le destin

Tant pis pour le Sud
C´était pourtant bien
On aurait pu vivre
Plus d´un million d´années
Et toujours en été.
