Re: Librem 5 smartphone (Q3 2019)

what are your thoughts about this one? It's another effort to deliver full Linux on a smartphone, the Pine 64 stuff.Also another effort in the pipeline too, the Nx stuff.. All good. Much lower-specc'd though, like the Allwinner SoC/SoM and the Mali graphics core and tiny ram stuff is the Pine64. li...

What are your favorite sports to watch - and why

A supposed-to-be light-hearted discussion thread about your favorite sports to watch. Firstly a preamble. An occasional look at Federer vs Nadal vs Djokovic or Serena Williams is 100% compulsory watching, from time to time, Olympics of course to some degree and both the summer and winter versions, s...

Re: Tutanota free encrypted Calendar

Always nice to see someone like @handy, who had some well-based initial doubts about ads bots on the main site (a genuine concern normally ) and then actually proof-trail the actual product and then does own research and reverses the original standpoint. To me Tutanota came about because almost all ...

Re: Tutanota free encrypted Calendar

I thought it funny that on the Tutanota site they make big noise about fighting for privacy & not being spied upon, but there were two sets of the standard Facebook Twitter & co tracking icons on their main page...? Nothing of any of that stuff gets anywhere into your mail log-in environment or the...

Re: Any other readers here?

One of the most stimulating things to do is to just read and to keep-on reading quality books, methinks. Probably one the most intense and mind-challenging exercises as well, as about 80% is left up to the imagination. Loads of distractions and instant fixes in modern-day society though, with it's i...

Re: Who runs MX from USB and why?

I have a very specific reason to run a live system from a thumb drive (or whatever you'd prefer to name a basic usb boot), namely that my company almost shoves through that all payroll stuff must only exist under an app from either google or else apple. Neither of which greatly appeals. The only des...

Re: Librem 5 smartphone (Q3 2019)

I have been watching this for several years. Since my first post here about Purism's phone. I do not have the financial means to buy one yet. Not sure if I ever will. I share your excitement though. If they can achieve this it will be great news for Linux and security minded folks. You did not make...

Re: Do you play a musical instrument, if so: which?

I can count about 6x responses with affinity to rhythm guitar stuff here, I 100% thought it might be only me here. Guess not. Nice to have some comapny. To make it 100% clear I just suck at anything music, not 100% suck technically as-in can actually replicate much nicer stuff (but not fit for any p...

Librem 5 smartphone (Q3 2019)

The moment is fast approaching that Purism (an SCP from California) will finally offer the world a genuinely Linux native smartphone, after 2 years of initial crowdfunding (a tiny $2m+ btw) and incessant hacking the core since then. Just who is waiting for (or else eagerly anticipating) this product...

Re: Do you play a musical instrument, if so: which?

Always rhythm guitar for me. it just in some ways means that you are almost always present in the mix - to very much develop and guide the direction of a song structure and to maybe propel a song forward, by giving it it's base.Not it's bass, haha. Bass guitar however is quite genuinely alien to me....
