If anyone out there has a #gemini capsule they like reading or run one yourself, let me know! I want more places to visit in Gemini space.

Boost accordingly if you know anyone else who'd like to share. I'll try to compile links into a big toot later for anyone else looking for more capsules to check out. =D

I finally created my personal website: > > > on pages.sr.ht using custom domain (still building locally until I hack together an elisp publish script to create the build environment).

If anyone has any suggestions or feedback, I would very much appreciate learning new/better approaches. Repo @ git.sr.ht/~shom/shom.dev

update, Wi-Fi is working great on kernel 5.12.x as recommended by frame.work themselves. It's impressive that the founder @cmonkey@twitter.com is testing kernel version himself and providing support on the community forum.

A ln issue I that need to investigate further: I can't boot the laptop unless I have power connected, almost like a jump start for a car. I can remove the external power immediately after pressing the power button then it "charges up" then restarts.

@fedops and @jx0, I shared more info on the framework laptop. Happy to answer questions.

I have it configured with 2 USB-C ports, 1 USB-A, and 1 microSD card reader. Booting up went fine, I installed from flash drive to microSD v90, suprisingly fast.
The BIOS (needed to disable secure boot) splash screen doesn't show FN key legend for boot device (F12) / BIOS (? I mashed a lot of FN keys), so that would be a nice touch to add.
Having WiFi issues, will investigate later. But everything else feels snappy and display looks good (3:2 ratio!!).
Happy to answer questions!

They supplied an advisory to put some insulating tape under the touchpad cable to prevent a potential short (similar issue to pre-2012 Macbook SATA cable, could potentially rub over time and short). I appreciated the note and put down some electrical tape, photo attached, it was working in the manufacturer favor. The advisory sheet also had a couple stickers on it, which was cool.
All other hardware looks good and fits well. I'm not a huge fan of the keyboard, a bit mushy.

The top plate is secured in place with magnets (gluing isn't the answer!) and feels very secure and still easy to remove with spudger. Only a single ribbon cable connects the top to the main board and it has plenty of play so working with it was comfortable and easy to detach and reattach.
Installing the components, RAM (which I had) and wifi-card (which I bought from frame.work) was very easy. I'd even say easier than desktop since everything is open and flat. I'll install the NVMe later.

Since there was a decent bit of interest, here's a update.

I opened up the case with the provided multi-tool (T6/phillips reversible bit with a spudger at the other end). The screws on the case are captive, which is great no worries about losing one. 1 of the 5 screws wasn't perfectly aligned but posed no issues, build is solid. The spudger allows the keyboard to be lifted (top view under keyboard shown). The QR codes link to documentation (which has a lot of photos).

I just received my frame.work (i5) DIY edition laptop. I haven't installed the RAM and NVMe yet (they need to come out from another machine first) but I'm pretty impressed with the build quality so far. The laptop feels solid and the expansion cards fit flush and tight. I'm excited about the 3:2 display, design, and user everything.
If folks are interested I can share my experience as I get it up and running.
