I am having problems with my voice currently (well, it's been bad for a while), so my next video is going to be delayed. Maybe I am going to need to switch over to a different style of video, which would require intense editing. Don't like that, but..

Doing a software upgrade after about 2 weeks on my old "app test-drive" microSDXC card running by @danct12 mobile: 203 new packages!

... and here's the same from yesterday but on a #librem5.
For some reason #plymouth chokes a little compared to the devkit. Patches are all out there now so everyone can build their own encrypted #PureOS images.

#osk-sdl changes are already merged upstream, thanks @craftyguy

Just regognised that my PC prefers my Pine phone over Wifi to connect with the Internet. As it sees it as wired connection. At least I know now that network tethering works on Mobian.

Coming soon: "LINMOB live", occasional live streams. Did a test run today and learned, will tweak my setup and try again soon. Thanks for everyone who watched it/joined in, you made it a fun experience!

@purism Currently manages 30 FPS, just right for that perfect cinematic experience ;) There's still work to do to unleash the full power of the SoC though!

SuperTuxKart played on a Librem 5 phone using an external keyboard and a 1080p TV. So this is this "mobile gaming" they keep talking about, huh? :D

@mobian @PINE64 One more thing: That's not a laptop, I am not a magician, it's just a regular old HP Elite X3 Lap Dock, a "brainless laptop" that can be connected via USB-C, see for more information.

I am just trying out / @mobian on my @PINE64 , and I think I might have to abandon "just do that other Plasma Mobile video, finish your blog post on the topic and that's it for the week"-plan.

I tried to include everything I really like here: Display Settings, Close Button on windows, mobile friendly Gnome To Do and Rhythmbox.

#sms can be a hit and miss when #pinephone is in #deepsleep so when I received one I got kinda excited.
Then the following conversation happened:
me: YEAH I got an sms.
collegue: oh,from whom?
me: my gas company
col: and why are you so excited?
me: well..em.. I.. I really like the company.

Who is the #weirdo now? :D

Dalton Durst of @ubports fame held a great talk on improving Linux phone battery life at . If you can only watch one video this week, make it this one:
