Doubling the PinePhone storage perf with a soldering iron and a steady hand
Today I'm starting a new Freedom Project.
Four projects under one roof.
First, a secure OS to run from USB for doing "internet stuff annonymusly".
Same OS to run on mobile phone - pinephone to start with.
A secure (as is possible) mobile NAS for the home/office
A mobile webserver.
And a maybe a fifth of a universal mesh network protocol for a private (as not in the hands of large corps) interent.

🔄 Boosts very appreciated, we need you!
If you are still on @mobian bullseye , be aware that we decided to not support this distro anymore, and newer things (gnome-* 41) won't make it to your device. Do upgrade to the 'bookworm' repository, using the repositories described in our blog post.
(And a concise how-to-upgrade post will be published soonish)

With respect, the docs say the "sequencer nodes" save the hashes (identifiers) produced by scanning people's eyes to your database.
Apple does not, IIRC, catalog raw bio hashes—they're encrypted on-device (via enclave).
Tomorrow at 3pm UTC I'll be going live and working on libshumate, the upcoming GTK 4 maps library. Join in if you're interested in how GNOME is developed!
➡️ @mobian - Mobile version of Debian Linux
➡️ @postmarketOS - Mobile version of Alpine Linux
➡️ @ubports - Mobile version of Ubuntu Linux
Probably the easiest option right now is buying a PinePhone or an /e/ degooglised phone, as they have their OSes preinstalled.
However, all these projects deserve support so that alternative phones can become as functional and as easy to use as possible.
My thoughts on the mobile phone security, only a brief overview.
@Gargron There's some kind of issue that we've been running into with a particular user on a particular instance. bob at epicyon.freedombone.net generates an Internal Server error just trying to look at his profile. When people follow him, it causes issues with their Home timeline or their notifications if he's interacted with one of their Toots. I'd put an issue in on Github, but I don't have more details. I thought maybe you'd want to look at it while it's in progress.
