Looks like my next video is going to be (by popular demand) on the current state of on the @PINE64 . I am going to write a post with the details and hope that I can get it to do more than in my earlier attempts on @postmarketOS.

(Will try it on @mobian, too.)

Partner Bragging 

I am so freaking proud of my wife. She started a small manufacturing business in 2015, and has worked her ass off for the last 5 years on her own. She has put her body through the wringer day-after-day. And today, she sold the business at a more than fair price to good people who have great ideas on sustainable agriculture. I want to shout from the roof tops just how in awe of am of her, but the few of you who read this will have to suffice. Thanks for reading.

What it feels like introducing someone to the foss-world

Windows is a neat hobby project, but I don't see it becoming big and professional like Linux.

One thing I can never get working is pushing software out via GPO at work. This pisses me off.

What was something positive that happened to you today?

Finally getting off my ass and fixing/updating my switch.

My kids are both starting virtual school on Monday. For a first grader and a 4k student....this will be both entertaining and frustrating.

HDMI adapter I use for my work laptop stopped working today. Reordering it, and going to finally buy a new monitor (since I'm still rocking a LED VGA monitor in my home office).

100 days ago, the new Green-Red coalition in #Munich adopted the principle of 'Public Money? Public Code!' to guide their procurement of software. Now, we take a look at the first activities undertaken for the use of #FreeSoftware.

Me: I should really get some work done.
Also me: I should install Arch on my Surface Pro 3!

Got something starting to look like a folding #pinephone case here. Need to figure out a keyboard to go in it.

After spending today using only my running ubuntu touch, taking it out and about in "normal daily life", I made a quick write-up of my experience.

All in all it's actually looking really good! A number of issues remain in UT, such as the camera and, I think, GPS, but UI performance is great and there has been a huge increase in the number of apps that are available on the Open Store. 😀
