If people want an open network, stop shit-talking open things 

ok, postmarketOS with phosh picked up my #pinephone SIM and connected the modem all on its own, dialed a call (still no call audio), and did the right thing sending and receiving SMS.

things are getting good in open source phone land, folks

Lua convincingly defeated Visual Basic, JavaScript and Go to make it to this round, whereas C beat COBOL, Perl and Bash.

Who will make it to the big final?

Python advanced to this round with wins over Object Pascal, Fortran and Lisp, while Rust battled it out against Julia, Ruby and C++.

Who will make it to the big final?

Mama why is there autoplaying video under my bed

Shhh my little one. Because we all made a terrible mistake and the bad things came.

Don't make a sound or it will eat you.

Sleep well.

Me, looking at daughter working on 500 piece jigsaw puzzle: Why create work for yourself?

She: you’re the one who codes in lisp

"Maybe this is easier to explain in person."

Maybe.

But you know what?

I also like it when you type it out to explain.

(1) It makes you sit down and write out the details.
(2) It gives you more time to collect and organise your thoughts in a presentable way.
(3) It leaves a written record of the explanation.

I know it's more work to communicate in writing, and I know it takes more time. The end result is often better for it, though.

Paper is patient. Well, textboxes are patient.

Ye has entered the country!

All that's left to see is how much mercy will the gods of the Croatian customs office show to us poor, mortal souls...

I can't wait to get my #Pinephone so I can text people "GNU phone, who dis?"

This looks like a cool project.

"The Open Book aims to be a simple device that anyone with a soldering iron can build for themselves. The Open Book should be comprehensible: the reader should be able to look at it and understand, at least in broad strokes, how it works. It should be extensible, so that a reader with different needs can write code and add accessories that make the book work for them."

Ye has shipped!

I forgot how it feels to be excited about a piece of hardware. Having an actual, proper GNU/Linux distro on my phone is a long-time dream of mine, and I'm really hoping that the community manages to pull through.

Yay!

Comets actually have two tails. A dust tail pushed back by the pressure of the Sun's light (white in this image) and an ion tail pushed back by the particles of the solar wind (blue in this image).

Internet-based messaging apps obviously don't work while the phone is offline, which leads to some curious side-effects.

Reading & writing messages becomes more focused, because I usually do it only when I decide I have time and energy to catch up with what had happened on the internets; as a consequence, I'm more invested in the act instead of just replying as an afterthought while waiting for public transport.

Two amazing little apps I've recently discovered on :

Loop Habit Tracker — f-droid.org/en/packages/org.is — Neat little tracker. Works offline, doesn't require registration, no cloud features, exports & imports data in reasonable formats.

Voice — f-droid.org/en/packages/de.ph1 — An player. Reads files from your phone, no registration / cloud bullshit, has all necessary controls you'd expect.

For what it's worth, earlier I fought the compulsion by turning off most push notifications, and that has worked to a very decent degree.

It has still given plenty of room for ridiculously easy mindless wandering around the interwebs, and I didn't like that.
