This iFixit video reminded me how cool the FairPhone actually is and I realized it makes me a bit sad that the Linux crowd currently doesn't work much with those devices :/
Looking for wifi AP recommendations
I have a Ubiquiti Unifi AP but don't like the overhead of running the Unifi controller tool, nor that Ubnt collect user metadata.
I'd like something useful for me (advanced user) that I can also recommend for "normal people", whom I can help with the configuration.
The Mikrotik cAP ticks many boxes as a replacement, but I *hate* their complicated management UI. Is it worth learning, or are there better alternatives?
I don't often link to Twitter statuses, because.... Twitter, but this one was funny. I'll quote so you don't have to click the link, but you can if you want to.
"Breaking: Mars becomes the second planet that has more computers running Linux than Windows."
I made it mine through:
* "bricking" it (it is very HARD to _actually_ brick as it boots in priority from a micro-SDcard.. and the issue was documented)
* trying 10+ OSes on it
* apt dist-upgrade
* apt install stuff
* editing config files and boot loader with vi
* querying the baseband
* adding custom script in /usr/local/bin
* importing data through NextCloud
I feel that joy, curiosity and excitement i didn't feel in computing for a while! #Libre
