I've been working on this for a very long time, and I've constantly been adding new things I learn from time to time. I never really talked about it too much since I made it mostly for my own consumption but I think it might be useful for others as well.
It's a reference with tips and tricks on how I setup my #archlinux install as well as common problems one may encounter along the way. Feel free to let me know what you think, as well as contribute your own tips!
Hello from Toot, the CLI mastodon client, on the #pinephone! I'm going for a command-line based approach, as I've found that text based interfaces are far less buggy that GUIs on the pinephone. I've been quiet while setting up my phone, but a blog post about my setup is coming soon-ish. I'm still working out a few things, but I've been daily driving Arch Arm with SXMO since the day I got it and I've been really happy so far. So here's to Pine64, DanctNIX, SXMO, LinMob, and so many others!
Centralised messenger Signal has just announced that they are making part of their server software closed source. They claim it is to fight spam, but by using closed source they make it impossible for outsiders to verify the truth. This is worrying.

just ditched #github for #gitlab, and now i'm setting up a CI pipeline to make a GitLab Pages website! I plan on blogging about the #pinephone (coming in the next few days, as dhl tracking says it's already in my city) from the perspective of someone very new to gnu/linux. I'll be posting all about #sxmo, (or maybe #swmo someday,) my experience learning shell scripting, and getting into all things suckless!
