Corona Warn App in Kürze bei @fdroidorg verfügbar:

https://www.heise.de/news/Corona-Warn-App-in-Kuerze-bei-F-Droid-verfuegbar-4973701.html

"Der Entwickler Marvin Wißfeld hat die Client-Bibliotheken für die Corona Warn App nachgebaut. Damit funktioniert die App unter Android ohne Google-Services."

"[Marvin hat] in wenigen Wochen im Alleingang das geschafft, was den Großunternehmen SAP und DTAG trotz staatlicher Bezuschussung scheinbar nicht gelungen ist […]"

Eigentlich sollte er von dem Zuschuss seinen Anteil bekommen!!!

So I've got a pretty involved Android mobile development project that I've been working on for a couple of years here to help with medication tracking & tapering, as well as some other tasks that are related. Unfortunately, I'm having an issue right now that is utterly blocking not only my work on fixing this bug itself, but it's such a significant bug that it's blocking my progress on any other significant issues that I've got in the project, too, so I'm at a pretty complete standstill. The problem is dealing with an attempt to schedule a PeriodicWorkRequest with a WorkManager (JetPack work version 1.0.1, not the new androidx v2.4.0). It seems that everything goes fine up until my task is to be executed, at which point it is executed twenty times (exactly), instead of just once, apparently in parallel (?!?). My skills at debugging and googling related issues have proven absolutely useless to this point, so I've finally begun reaching out to more than just the IRC gurus, whom have been utterly unable to help me on this issue, despite their wonderful track record.

So I finally broke a several year stretch of not asking any questions on StackOverflow and went and wrote up a post about it. Threw the same information in a post on AndroidForums, too. I'm hoping that between the two of them I can at least find a better technique for debugging this problem on my own, if not some insight onto why this is happening and thus how I might go about correcting this behavior.

I figured I'd whine about it here, too, because I know of at least a few Android developers on Diaspora. The more people that see the post the better my chances are of getting out from behind this blockage in a reasonable timeframe. If you don't have a clue what to do about this, or even if this is all Greek to you, but you have developers that you share with, I would really appreciate a reshare just to get this request for assistance out a little further into the community.

So without further ado, here is my StackOverflow post on this PeriodicWorkRequest issue that I've been having. It's written up, along with code snippets, pretty definitively there; I didn't see any need to repeat that all here when most of the people who would be seeing this post are probably not developers.

Thank you for your time and assistance!

braucht hier vielleicht zufällig jemand ein zweit-/wander-/urlaubs-/festival-smartphone?

Funktioniert tadellos, ein paar kleine Schönheitsfehler wie winzige Kratzer und Dellen durch diverse Stürze sind vorhanden, Display jedoch ohne Schaden. Ladestecker + Kabel gibt es natürlich dazu.

Der Akku schwächelt inzwischen ein wenig, ist jedoch austauschbar und für unter €20,- auf Amazon zu bekommen. Wenn man nicht den ganzen Tag darauf spielt kommt man immer noch locker über den Arbeitstag. Das Gerät ließ sich heute nach nunmehr 10 Monaten Lagerung problemlos wieder einschalten.

Fairphone 3 und eine Interview mit dem Fairphone-Gründer

Zudem sei Android One "sehr stark an Google angebunden" und man bevorzuge es hier, "so unabhängig wie möglich" zu bleiben.


Technisch sei das Fairphone 3 seinem Vorgänger nicht nur bei der Leistung überlegen, sondern vor allem auch in Sachen Kamera und Akkulaufzeit.


Man sei stolz auf das bisher Dennoch sei das Fairphone "noch weit davon entfernt", hundertprozentig "fair" zu sein. Die größte Herausforderung sei, dass man beim Aufbau vieler Lieferketten ganz von vorne beginnen müsse.


Die Einführung des neuen Standards für Mobilkommunikation stecke noch in den Kinderschuhen.

Daher habe man sich entschieden, beim Fairphone 3 auf 5G-Support zu verzichten.

Does anyone here have any experiences with Fairphones?
The idea sounds lovely: a modular built repairable phone running vanilla Android with at least 5yrs support and as a fair trade product.

Anyone can order spare parts.
It really is repairable. See this post by @Mikel Diaspora for an independent report (thanks for the pointer, Mikel).

So I just got #shadowban'ed by #yotube on two answers, each of 'em on the respective pinned comment by #theyoungturks about freedom of speech in two different videos.

Here are the comments that still figure in my youtube app on #android phone like posted. Even the response count includes my comment in the counting.

#Freespeech? #Democracy? #FreedomOfInformation?
harharhar ..
https://youtu.be/zy4XWqytWRs
Google and "freespeech"?
You guys have no idea what that company is standing for at this point and how you yourself, the young turks, are making money of the technics that are used to influence people on a subconcious level.
Youtube pulls 228 million comments in three month with an algorithm by #shadowban.
Need proof?

Oha .. I hate to bring it to you Andrew but you will have to rewrite your book.
YT right now is pulling more than 228 million comments and answers to comments by algorithm in three month with shadowban! That's their own data.
Reasons are uncertain as there is no law to open source those algos by default to protect freedom of speech.
The only reasonable way to stop this is decentralization by default and moderation by the respective nodes and the users.
Zuckerberg for example knows that but he can't say it because share holders will fry him.
The problem we are facing is because of jazzing up user numbers without any reasonable way of filtering. You just can't connected the whole world without creating a big f** mess. We don't do it in real life neither.
Prof Dr. Peter Kruse explains that brillantly, you'll find bit's of him here on YT.
I'm sorry that the content of the following link is in spanisch but I'm investigating that algorithm "reverse engeneering" over a month now on spanisch YT commenting on politics democracy and democratic elections:

I'm #evaluating several #messaging protocols at the moment. I'm looking for the following characteristics for a "perfect" messaging app:so far: ( + = positive, - = negative aspect of the app)
  • #Jami / #Ring Here
    • (+) platform independent #Android version is seamless with #windows and #Linux version
    • (+) supports video chat, phone calls, etc.
    • (-) only works when both parties are online at the same time. Can't retrieve messages at a later time. They are working on this. Since I don't use a data plan on my smart phone, I can only use this if #wifi is enabled.
  • #patchwork (here) ( #scuttlebutt) (windows/Linux) or Manyverse (android)
    • (+) opensource
    • (+) almost completely distributed using the idea of pubs to connect and download messages
    • (+) works even when offline. Messages sync once connection is re-established
    • (-) the android version ( #Manyverse ) cannot send #private messages (yet). If this feature is worked out, Manyverse will be the messenger of choice.
  • #retroshare (here) (windows/linux/android)
    • (+) linux/windows version looks very mature
    • (+) uses #TOR to #encrypt
    • (+) has support for #chat, messaging, #email, etc.
    • (-) Android version - alpha release. I can't get it to even create a user login at this point. I did at one point, but now it's not working.

mobileCTRL im Fediverse

Ich weiß, im Fediverse dreht sich vieles um Open Source und freie Software.
Wer trotzdem an News über #Android #iOS #Windows #Wearables etc. interessiert ist sollte vielleicht den Kanal von @mobileCTRL auf Mastodon im Auge behalten.

Ich finde es zumindest ziemlich cool, wenn sich solche Technik-Blogs auch mal die Mühe machen und ins (unbekannte) Fediverse vorstoßen. Da kann man sie auch mal lieb willkommen heißen.

Ich bin mit diesem Blog in keiner Weise verbunden. Sie haben nur auf G+ von mir den Tipp mit Mastodon bekommen und schauen sich das jetzt mal an, was ich persönlich gut finde, deshalb auch die Reklame hier ;-)
