Just heard Frank Zappas Bobby Brown for the first time since school. Think it's the first time I ever listened to the lyrics. Did not know it was that kind of song 😂

Brief Update on the Fairphone3 with /e/ OS:
Now that I did the install properly it boots again, the last os update brought a huge performance boost, no lags to be found.

App Updates at times still require a phone reboot to work, but that is not much of an issue for me.

All in all it is, by now, a very good device and it feels very good not to be tracked permanently by apple

Random thought of the day:
It is ridiculous how much grown men get paid for playing ball (because as always women get paid shit for the same task).
Most of that money comes from advertising. FC Barcelona alone made 840M€ last year.
Just imagine all that money put to actual use, billions for third world development projects, education or space exploration....
We could even allow companies to put their names there, for advertising purposes...

Thanks to the work of Samuel Holland, crust advanced power management is now capable of running the for 100hrs in idle without the modem (approximately 110mW). With modem on, we should get 40% battery run-time increase (to approx 24 hrs).
Coming to your distro of choice soon!

Forgotten about the gardeners coming today to trim the hatches and trees at the company. NC headphones at home ...


Strange new thing on my pop os laptop, sudo takes forever to display the password prompt, afterwards everything back to normal speed...

Haven't had that before...

Getting further with my new book.
Examples are mostly in python, which I never used before. Not big deal, most programming languages are pretty much the same.
But the no semicolon thing after an instruction is really spooky to me as a C dev....

Spent the morning playing around with subsonic and ultrasonic as well as with an old 300GB hdd holding some mp3s from when you still had those. I now have a selfhosted music server and am planning to ditch spotify soon.

@WeAreFairphone did not know there was a community account, awesome!

Android users: which foss weather app are you using?

I think I know what I want for christmas:

Guess I have to wait a little though...

Good morning everyone,

just a little update, I managed to get my running the -rom working again. Did most of the setup yesterday and this time it is a smooth experience. If all goes well, no more ios in the evening :)

Turns out it wasn’t the server fault, it was a power outage...
