  • Time for a breath of fresh air

    Dear club members, dear friends, In 2017, when I was asked by William Sutherland and Lutz Petersen to help save ipernity from shipwreck, I had just turned 65. I felt too young and energetic for a tranquil retirement. So I went for it, knowing well that it would be a challenging venture full of uncertainties because no one on the founding team was a qualified IT professional. But volunteering for a worthwhile non-profit project appealed to me, and as a passionate mountaineer I was used to hand…

  • The power of Misused Words

    The power of misused words
    Yesterday there was a deflagration of ether vapour at the chemical institute in Innsbruck (Austria). Such a deflagration is a fast combustion at the boundary surface between the heavy ether vapour and the lighter air above it after ignition. If the ether vapour had been swirled with the air beforehand, there would have been a huge explosion after ignition. But not a detonation . This is because in a detonation, the initial ignition creates a pressure wave that spreads through the expl…

  • 2020-12-24 Merry Christmas!

    Version française : Veuillez faire défiler vers le bas ⬇️ Deutsche Version: Bitte nach unten scrollen ⬇️ [EN] Dear members and friends of ipernity, Unfortunately, our IT specialists were not able to repair the disruption of the upload function before Christmas. The cause is that the Amazon cloud no longer accepts the previous data transfer protocol. Solving this problem is extremely difficult, because the ipernity software is very complex, and any documentation is rather limited.…

  • Candidacy

    I would like to apply for the role of CTO, while I am more of an engineer with computer skills than an IT expert. Since my computer science lessons at school over 40 years ago, before Windows, my knowledge today is based on what I have taught myself. Much has grown out of working with Wim Janssen on votingmachines.panoramiogames.com . So I learned html, php, javascript and SQL, which is used there. This allowed me to help with the last small upgrades, but I found that ipernity is much mor…

  • Reactivation Proposal for Esperanto

    [FR] ▶️ Proposition de réactivation de l'espéranto [DE] ▶️ Reaktivierungsvorschlag für Esperanto [EN] Dear members and friends of ipernity, Ten months ago, we had decided to further maintain the ipernity website only in the seven main languages of the western hemisphere. This cut the software maintenance effort in half so we could achieve twice as much with our limited programming capacity. Despite this limitation, we do reach 99.3% of all club members in their native langua…

    I created the header image because the United States is facing its greatest threat ever – a coup that will forever destroy the Constitution, extinguish freedom and have significant, profound and lasting consequences for not only America but the entire world as human dignity and fundamental rights such as freedom of speech, thought, religion and life are eliminated and governments determine and control the dissemination of information, shape our individual destiny and even decide who may have off…

  • 2017-09-01 Business Takeover

    [EN] Dear Members, We are thrilled to announce that we are about to take the last steps of IMA's take-over of the Ipernity platform and service. IMA is now handling the financial aspects of the site. IMA made the first payment to Amazon Web Services for August and will continue to pay the operating costs to ensure the site runs without interruption. This is a major accomplishment in the transition from Ipernity S.A. to IMA . However, technical issues such as renewal options still need…

  • Ongoing issue : Possible fraud

    Hello, I'm sad to announce that we have a possible fraud artist in the donation of IMA crowdfunding for ipernity. It means that rather than almost 21k, we are at almost 18k which is still a great number in such a few day. IMA contacted Indigogo (who owns Generosity) to investigate the question. It doesn't mean that giving through Generosity isn't safe, simply that somebody stole credit card numbers somewhere and are using it to make donation for odd reasons. Please continue to par…
