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.)

Side-by-side:

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.

10 years ago I started using ad blockers because I thought ads were annoying. Now I think that's the _least_ important reason to use them.

I think we should call them "browser firewalls." That more accurately describes their purpose.

We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.

Which is your primary browser on your computer?

Remember that Brave, Opera and Edge are Chromium derivatives. I consider Safari to be separate since it's Webkit and not Blink.

With Hong Kong being such a hot topic, are FOSS licenses recognized or effective in Hong Kong or China? I wonder what the software landscape is like over there. It would be discouraging if your FOSS project got shutdown b/c someone copied it all and claimed your license was worthless. That said, there's probably the same sort of problems with FOSS here in the US.

Real hackers enable the evil bit on all their outgoing IPv4 packets! :linus: My RFC 3514 kernel module has gotten a lot of traffic recently. I wish I knew why...

My mind is being blown by what you can do with SAT/SMT solvers in Python. You can use them to solve sudoku puzzles in just a handful of lines! I'm starting to wonder what you can't do with them...
