Hello. Friendfeed. I'm so sorry your site is closing. I really enjoyed the time here. I hope in the near future you will add another site like this one. Please let me know about any future sites like yours. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a member of this very enjoyable community of yours. Have a great year.

For instructions please see readme.txt: https://github.com/patrick... - ؛ patrick
Well this looks interesting... Is there any documentation on what it is/does?? - Lindsay
Please see "readme.txt". I sent the URL earlier. It basically gets a backup of your FF Feeds plus their files (images, mp3's, etc.) - ؛ patrick
@Marco, thanks for reporting it. I fixed it and uploaded the new version - ؛ patrick
Change Log: 11/08/2010 - Version 1.1.1 - Fixed the issue with reading backup_dir setting - ؛ patrick
دوستان اگر سوالی دارید بپرسید، جواب میدم - ؛ patrick
خسته نباشی‌! - apar(اپر)
مرسی اپر جان - ؛ patrick
کسی اینو تست کرد؟ - ؛ patrick
Eclipse project files come with the source. Download/install eclipse (http://www.eclipse.org/downloa...). Then use Import -> General -> Existing Projects into Workspace - and it will compile it for you. Shoot questions if you have any problem - ؛ patrick
مرسی گل آقای عزیز - ؛ patrick
nice! - .LAG liked that
Thanks. Did you get a chance to test it? - ؛ patrick
@ ؛ patrick: not yet, but will import it into Eclipse when I get a chance - .LAG liked that
...works as advertised. i now have a folder full of XML - .LAG liked that
very nice. glad to hear that! - ؛ patrick
پانته آ جان اجازه بدید من فردا نگاهی به کد بندازم ببینم چه کاری میتونم انجام بدم که یک سری فیلتر بشه براش تعریف کرد - ؛ patrick
خوب من به برنامه فیلتر اضافه کردم ولی مطمئن نیستم این چیزی هست که می خواستی. مساله اینجاست که اگر برای لینکی لایک نزده باشی یا کامنتی ننوشته باشی، در لیست مای دیسکاشنز ظاهر نمیشه و در نتیجه دانلود هم نمیشه - ؛ patrick
بله حالا ورژن جدیده. فرصت بشه این قسمتش رو هم درست می کنم - ؛ patrick
any mac version? :D - نیک
شرمنده نیک جان. من مک در اختیار ندارم. اگر زحمتی نیست اون بچ-فایل رو یه نگاهی بکن ببین چطور میشه تبدیلش کرد به اسکریپت برای مک. اگر کار کرد که زحمت بکش به من هم یک کپی بده. اگر هم سوالی داری بپرس که جواب بدم - ؛ patrick
12/12/2011 - Version 1.1.3 - Added Spam Cleaner - ؛ patrick
13/12/2011 - Version 1.1.4 - Added ability to delete comments from blocked users - ؛ patrick
برای کسانی که می خوان اسپم ها رو پاک کنن، من یک قسمت جدید به برنامه اضافه کردم که میتونید لیست افرادی که اسپم می کنند را به فایل کانفیگ اضافه کنید و برنامه رو اجرا کنید. خود به خود تمام کامنت های این افراد را در هر جایی که زیر لینک های شما باشه پاک می کنه حتی اگر اونها را بلاک کرده باشید. ولی شرطش اینه که پابلیک باشید. مثلن اگر پرایوت هستید، میتونید قبل از اجرای برنامه برای چند لحظه پابلیک بشید و وقتی برنامه تمام شد دوباره پرایوت کنید - ؛ patrick
پاتریک، این چه قابلیت‌ها و ویژگی‌هایی داره؟ - آرشیو
ورژن قدیمیش که میتونه از فیدتون بک آپ بگیره. حالا هم یک برنامه بهش اضافه کردم که میتونه کامنت های اسپمر ها رو از تمام لینک هاتون پاک کنه - ؛ patrick
برنامه سراغ نداری که لیست کسانی را که بلاک کرده‌ایم یا ما را بلاک کرده‌اند را نشان بدهد؟ - آرشیو
;-) - ؛ patrick
it's a batch file. they don't need eclipse for it - ؛ patrick
it's okay :)) - ؛ patrick
دانلودش کن، به درد می خوره ;-) - ؛ patrick
اون دو تا بچ فایل رو باز کن، کامندش اونجا هست. شرمنده فرصت نشد برای لینوکس هم اسکریپتش رو بنویسم - ؛ patrick
مرسی. اگر ساکس رو اضافه کردی کدش رو به من هم بده اضافه ش کنم. یا اگر می خوای میتونم اضافه ت کنم به پروژه خودت تغییرات رو کامیت کنی - ؛ patrick
دو نوع فایل اونجا هست. یک سری فایل سورس هست (اس-آر-سی) و یک سری فایل باینری (بی-آی-ان). باید اون فایل باینری رو دانلود کنید. بعد توی یک فولدر آن-زیپ ش کنید. بعد یک فایل داره به اسم رید-می (مرا بخوانید) که همه چیز توش نوشته شده - ؛ patrick
بهتره به جای هارد کد کردن مقادیر تغییر پذیر از کانفیگ فایل استفاده بشه - محمد لی
پاتریک جان اینجا هم ببینید فکر کنم اگر چند نفر با هم دیگه کار کنن جالب باشه https://friendfeed.com/ffarchi... - uɐſʃɐʌ uɐſ

Do any of the FF tech savvy here have a program that will "threadsuck" posts?
Yes, I have a copy of one someone else made -- will post in a few mins. - Stephen Mack
I have one that I can host, but I might have to rewrite it. I think the one Stephen has, doesn't address the 10k API limit. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
I may convert FFTOP20 into a data reservoir, since it has the API bindings for oauth, which would allow me to bypass privacy, and rebuild the database. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Unfortunately, more than 6000 (I think) most recent posts are really hard to get, because the paging in the results maxes out. - Andy Bakun
Even that would be helpful, Andy. FF is the closest thing I keep to a diary and I just want to get those entries as best I can. - Spidra Webster
Yeah, I've been collecting my own feed for a while (17,516 entries, oldest is 2008-12-02), because it's been the same thing for me. I may write my own personal aggregator, since I get a lot of value of the diary/archive aspect of it (more so than the sharing/social aspects), but it may be tough going since RSS is out of favor now and everything seems like OAUTH walled gardens. - Andy Bakun
It's not really viewable, it just ends up in an sqlite database (unlike Facebook's archive thingy, last time I used it, it emitted a zip file containing viewable HTML (which is otherwise largely useless for anything other than looking at it, no stats, or themeing or anything). - Andy Bakun
Andy, I have one of the last working OAUTH implementations, with keys and endpoints. So I could feasibly provide a slower scrape that builds out comments, as well as posts, and reattaches relations across the site, instead of just for a single user. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Oh, I'm not concerned about Friendfeed's OAUTH implementation, but rather the rest of the internet's, which, I think makes it hard to get your own data out. - Andy Bakun
But, yeah, whatever you can do to archive whatever's public would be great. - Andy Bakun
Unfortunately, I don't have access to a full blown scraping parser built over the API. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Andy, have you eaten lunch yet? I'm working just a block or two from you (I'm at Market & 2nd), if you want to discuss some stuff. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
I have not eaten lunch yet. - Andy Bakun
And have DM'ed you. (do the kids still call it that? "DM"?) - Andy Bakun
There's a few offering to help: - Kol Tregaskes
FriendFeed Backup Creator 1.9.2.0 - http://ff.im/14uWgc - Koleksiyoner Ali
Andy, since I don't program or script, it can be a little hard for me to understand what I'm looking at. Am I correct that your script requires a sqlite database to be installed? - Spidra Webster
No, it *creates* the sqlite database. Sqlite is an "embedded" database, it doesn't require any extra services to be running. The output of my script is a single file that contains all the data it exported, including embedded media, in a structured format. Using my script does require sqlite python modules to be installed, however. - Andy Bakun

RT @textfiles The Archive Team always gives its projects ludicrous project names, and the one to download Friendfeed is no different: ‪#‎humancentifeed‬
First indication I've seen that the Internet Archive is trying to back up Friendfeed. - Spidra Webster
One of the guys there (Jason Scott) is rather famous for trying to back up electronic history, going all the way back to BBS days (textfiles.com is his baby). Before going to work for archive.org, he ran (and still does) a volunteer archivist group called Archive Team (not affiliated with archive.org)http://archiveteam.org/index... They originally listed Friendfeed as a... more... - April Russo (FForever!)
I follow him, April. I tweeted at him the moment I got the news but I got no reply from him. - Spidra Webster
They have a bunch of data collected by me, from the top 100 most popular Twitter users, enough to completely rebuild their pages as they were on the date the data was collected (I think it was 2009), complete with backgrounds, etc. going all the way back to their first tweets, including all meta data. - April Russo (FForever!)
We share a common interest, both digital packrats collecting all kinds of crap and saving it for posterity, but he is hard core. - April Russo (FForever!)
Yeah, I was afraid of that. Does the Warrior Team stuff get around that? - Spidra Webster
It might, since it would be spread across many more IP addresses. It's also helpful to keep in mind that there seems to be a rate limit and you can't take too much at once. I had a couple of failed backups and could not restart till waiting for a period of time. (I am not sure what the data limit or length of time is) - April Russo (FForever!)

The declining number of users cannot possibly be the reason for the shutting down of FriendFeed.
There's no revenue from it. It would have been more honest to say "we don't want to be bothered anymore", and this is understandable if very sad. - .mau.
It shouldn't even be a problem with high hardware / bandwidth costs. If this were the case, the people in Facebook could have decided to close friendfeed-media.com which is the real space hog... - .mau.
The latest subscribers had a lot of problems. Maybe FF reached some hardcoded limit and they decided to shut it down before everything goes FUBAR - Angelo Ghigi from Flucso
I would guess that there are few in Facebook that know how FF works and those that do are either moving on or tired of kicking it back to life. - Me
I'm thinking about the post on Quora. "At some point, everyone who knows how to bring the service back up will have left Facebook, something will go wrong, and the servers just won't come back. And then a horde of angry Turkish people will yell at me about it on Twitter, and we will all remember the small but well-loved site it was." It didn't go that way, it seems. - naltro
There are only 3 individuals inside of Facebook that deal with Friendfeed. So shutting it down makes sense if any of them decided to move on. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
sì, ma dai. get a life. - 7 a 1 guest, cioè LiberoF
Facebook wants to herd FF users to Facebook----they are losing 'active' users --people who visit their facebook every day----and to keep revenue up Facebook depends on users clicking on the ads. FF has some uniqueness that is worth money if they wanted to make it profiting making---but Facebook is the one that went 'public' with stock offering and made a ton of money off their ip offering so they are going to do whaetver is necessary to draw more active users for revenue. - American

Is FriendFeed dead? My Twitter import hasn't worked in months and now it says it can't find my Twitter account.
FF the community is plenty alive. However, Twitter changed its API and since there is no active FF development team since Facebook bought it, there's no one to rewrite FF's code to account for the new API. At least that's how I understand it. Those who imported their Twitter feeds early on and haven't tinkered with it are still getting imports, I think. Those who, like me, at one point... more... - Spidra Webster
Thanks - xero
10 days after I ask, it shuts down. :( - xero

Will Friendfeed provide a way to export posts, comments and media from a users profile?
It's doubtful they will provide an official way, but there are several unofficial ones. Keep an eye on Jimminy's post here: http://friendfeed.com/jimminy... - Stephen Mack

Question: is there a spam/bot filter on FF which deletes posts after they appear on FF for a period of time? If there is, what activities and conditions trigger the filter?
No. There is a limitation on the number of posts visible (600), and a limitation on the number of posts available from the API (10,000). Otherwise, if a post is missing, it's been deleted by it's owner, marked private from you, or the owner has deleted their account. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
That's what I thought. - Sean McBride

One of the FF registered users can see feeds and comments but she is not able to comment or have her comments appear even on public feeds. What can be causing this?
I think when solving one problem, they wrote some sort of fix that accidentally hides the account of some legitimate users (who have more than one account or do something else that looks suspiciously like what bot spammers do?). So far trying to communicate with who's left at Facebook has not helped. What is the user's username? - Spidra Webster
The users name is Taxi. - American
Spidra Webster: "I think when solving one problem, they wrote some sort of fix that accidentally hides the account of some legitimate users (who have more than one account or do something else that looks suspiciously like what bot spammers do?)" -- have any other FF users reported this problem? Has there been any past discussion about it on FF? - Sean McBride
SM..yes, saw where someon else had this problem some time ago.....üsamem http://friendfeed.com/samem hey. Im invisible i can. See others but they cant my feeds and comments. Helppppp!😱🔥⚡ November 13from Android- Comment- Like http://friendfeed.com/friendf... - American
She may have inadvertently triggered a spam/bot filter -- perhaps someone reading this with high-level privileges on FF can fix this problem. She is neither a spammer nor a bot. - Sean McBride

FriendFeed Bookmarklet Hosting: Micah W.'s ffbookmarklet v1.03 "Woot Tube" Release -- draggable version - http://www.zeigen.com/ff/
FriendFeed Bookmarklet Hosting: Micah W.'s ffbookmarklet v1.03 "Woot Tube" Release --  draggable version
Having trouble with the FF Bookmarklet in Chrome or other browsers? This is an updated version thanks to Micah and sizofroid. To make it easier to install, I'm now hosting it at my site, so you don't have to jump through hoops, you can just drag the updated version to your bookmark bar. - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
Yay! [update: uh, I don't see the actual bookmarklet on that page] - lris
Hmm, what browser are you using, Iris? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Chrome, Mac. Here's what I see http://screencast.com/t... - lris
Well that's weird. Chrome on Windows is working for me. When you go to the FF tools page, is the button there visible for you? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yes it is - lris
Iris, have you disabled JavaScript by chance? I had a coworker test with Chrome on his Mac and it was working for him. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
No. And I did have adblocker running but I disabled it for that site. - lris
I love you. - Melly
I love you too, Melly! - Stephen Mack
Iris, hold on, gonna try something to fix it. - Stephen Mack
I'm running Chrome on Windows if that helps, FYI. - Melly
Iris, I changed how the image for the button was hosted. Did that fix it for you? - Stephen Mack
Yay! I see it! - lris
Yay! Hmm, you must have some pretty high levels of security set. All I changed was copying the image for the button from FF's server to mine. - Stephen Mack
I am not aware of extra high levels of security. Maybe I'm accidentally extremely careful. :) - lris
I'm sure it's no accident. :) - Stephen Mack
Hopefully no one else is having any trouble? - Stephen Mack
I added the older versions at the bottom, just in case there are any compatibility issues. - Stephen Mack
When I saw "draggable" I first thought it meant the popup can be dragged around within the page, to make it easier to select images that it would ordinarily be covering up...like this old one: http://pastebin.ca/1323845 I am still using that one, but installed as a dedicated CustomButton. If you have the Firefox add-on installed, it's easy to install the button from here: http://appsapps.info/ff... What I would like to have is a combo of all the goodies into one awesome button. - April Russo (FForever!)
April, that's a cool idea. I couldn't get the one you linked to work for me, though. I wonder if we can beg Micah to add that functionality into his version. - Stephen Mack
I just did. ;) - April Russo (FForever!)
Ah! I don't know about CustomButton, though. What is taht? - Stephen Mack
Which one could you not get to work? The 1st or 2nd link? The 1st is instructions for modifying the official bookmarklet to use the drag & drop popup. The 2nd link requires the CustomButtons add-on installed in Firefox. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US... You'd just click the link on my page to install the button, then right click a Firefox toolbar, go to... more... - April Russo (FForever!)
2nd link. But I see what you mean, it requires the add-on. Does it work on Chrome or IE, or just Firefox? - Stephen Mack
Compatibility: Mozilla Firefox 1.5+ SeaMonkey 2.0+ Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0+ Mozilla Sunbird 0.8-0.9 / Calendar 1.0pre KompoZer 0.8b1-0.8b3 Flock 0.7-1.5+ and Pale Moon (which is what I am using) - April Russo (FForever!)
Bump due to recent discussion. Micah, it'd be great to incorporate that feature from April's. Heard that at least one user is having trouble with the new bookmarklet. How's it working for others? (Works great for me! My default browser is Chrome.) - Stephen Mack
Working with Chrome, I'd say it works about 95% of the time really well. There are a couple sites where it just doesn't want to pull in the images, and sometimes the NY Times is tweaky, but both seem related to recent layout changes. - Jennifer Dittrich
Mine still doesn't work. I wonder if one of my plugins is breaking it. I've taken to browsing in Chrome and copying the URL over to IE when I want to post something to FF. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
It doesn't work for me: in Firefox (my default browser) it just brings up an empty box. As DB said, it might be a conflict with an extension, but I'm not sure which would be causing it. - John (bird whisperer)
First off, thank you for this work. I'll test it out in a bit. I have a lot of browsers to test in, and I use XMARKS so it should just pop to all my different browsers. - Eric - Final Countdown
Bump for Janet. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
please add this one on "firefox social" https://activations.cdn.mozilla.net/en-US... - orfe
Hero! - Antonio
doesn't work for me anymore, since the last couple of days. - Lucretia, my reflection ൠ
Hmm, working for me. Anyone else having trouble? Lucretia, does it not work at all? Which browser? - Stephen Mack
I'm having trouble with it on Chrome. same time period and I couldn't get to the site anymore to delete/reinstall it. - Sir Shuping is just sir
Oops, my host is down. Stand by! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
sure. thank you :) - Lucretia, my reflection ൠ
It's fixed now. So sorry for the problem. My host had shut me off for non-payment! (Because my credit card on file had expired.) Seems like they shut me off pretty quick, but they had tried to bill me last year and failed and then gave up but didn't bother notifying me about the problem until this year when they tried to bill me for both years. - Stephen Mack
yay! (this just reminded me that I also have a hosting to be paid, so double thanks!) - Lucretia, my reflection ൠ
It lives! - Micah from FFHound!
works for me now! yay! - Sir Shuping is just sir
It doesn't seem to be able to handle https web pages (with Windows 7 and the latest version of Firefox) -- is there a fix? - Sean McBride
