Google has removed client from the Play store. People, its time to yet again! Praise :fdroid:

Google suspended from the Google Play Store for "content which contravenes their terms of use."

Recording "restricted" video in is blocked by a simple conditional. Maybe even a single bit in the executable? Found this while exploring how mozCaptureStream() works.

I've been playing with Python and graphviz to visualize my arguments for/against different beliefs as an "epistemic graph." Here's a stab at US mail-in voting. What do you think?

I've been using for a few weeks, both the web and the mobile client, and...'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 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 this morning and just checked my box. It's at 250+GB / 1TB uploaded! I think I may have to set a rate limit...

Had some help soldering my iCEBreaker FPGA + LED panel kit and now it all works! I attempted to record my wife's pixel art on it, but I ended up find ghosts? Those "reflections" are spooky... (I'm not entirely sure what's causing it.)


Librem 5 Dev Kit & Librem 5 "Aspen" batch.

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 !

What madness is this?!

Installing the complete, unmodified LibreOffice right on a Librem 5?!??

This can't work... can it?

My wife posted this animated GIF of one of our many guinea pigs on bird site, but they compressed it too much. I'm curious to see how Mastodon handles it.

Edit: turns you have to upload gifs rather than just dragging and dropping.

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. #privacy #security #librem5

The first Librem 5 smartphones are shipping “This is a big moment, not just for us as a company, but for everyone concerned about issues of privacy, security, and user freedom. The Librem 5 represents years of work, building the software and hardware required to make this phone a reality.” - Todd Weaver, founder and CEO of #Purism #Librem5 #Librem5Aspen #Linux #LinuxPhone #LinuxMobile #GNOME #FOSS
