@tychi Congratulations, your conversion is under way.
I've been using Riot.im for a few weeks, both the web and the mobile client, and...
...it's a pretty damn solid experience! Finally a well-designed, secure, free as in freedom IM that doesn't suck.
Could you all, you know, ditch Slack, IRC, WhatsApp, Telegram and Discord and move to Matrix? Onegai-shimasu 🙏
My #OrangeCrab and fancy case arrived! Time to explore Linux on RISC-V and do something with it.
Upgraded to Linux 5.6.x, so I decided the next logical thing to do was play with the new io_uring interface, which seems to be batched IO without all the system call overhead. Specifically I wanted to see if it was possible to dump file info/stat faster than with syscalls. Turns out it's quicker until you flush the caches and realize that disks are mega slow and a fancy interface can't fix that... Still fun to play with!
Uh oh, I started seeding for aidungeon.io this morning and just checked my box. It's at 250+GB / 1TB uploaded! I think I may have to set a rate limit... #AIDungeon2

Time to break out the soldering iron! Just got my iCEBreaker FPGA LED kit. Built the free and open source tools last night (nextpnr, icestorm) in preparation. Ready to get knee deep in verilog! I've wanted to learn more about place and route. Now I can.
Thanks @esden !
My run through of the Librem 5 privacy and security-focussed mobile phone... What a joy to finally have it in my hands! My congratulations to the extraordinary team at Purism.
