Big ❤️ to my unsung heroes:

Busan Shah (sp?) who've done mind boggling things with #PlasmaMobile

@bram and the #Yunohost team for helping to make it easy to get my life off other people's computers.

@cwebber for two revolutions in open social (#activitypub and #spritely)

#Nextcloud for doing the right thing post #ownCloud Anne with #CollaboraOnline.

@PINE64 for so much great private, affordable hardware.

So many more that I ❤️ but can't fit in here!

Y'all ROCK!!

My dream for Mastodon is for it to be a viable choice as a publishing platform for any creator. In other words, for people to not feel like they're locked in to Twitter or Instagram if they want to be professionally successful.

New installs will have gnome-weather preinstalled on their @mobian , existing installs will have to install it manually. Enjoy! Credits go to @awai for making it (kind-of) mobile capable.

Booted #manjaro plasma on the #pinephone. Works ok, looks good. Did update, now boots to manjaro logo & no further. Mouse curser moves too!
Back to plan A!

You can use NRFConnect. You just need to add the "Current Time Service" in the menu "Configure GATT Server" from NRFConnect.

Then, connect NRFConnect to the Pinetime, wait for a few second, and the time should sync automatically!

App stores have a track record of acting capriciously & are also easy targets for gov't censors (including Trump). This is why alternatives like @fdroidorg are so important for user freedom.
