Got my OpenVPN virtual machine running nicely! Got a static route between the VPN & local subnets. I can remote to internal servers. But I still haven't figured out how to make SMB file shares show up for VPN users. :-\

People who've done FOSS/self-hosted home automation, what system(s) did you use and how well does your setup work?

Wow, we did not expect the level of interest you all have had in the #PineTime!

More info:
- Cost will be approximately 25USD
- Charging dock included in price
- Built-in heartbeat monitor
- Case built of Zinc alloy and plastic
- Battery life measured in days
- Sorry, can't run Linux itself. SoC is nRF52832, which uses a Cortex-M4 core. That's why we need FreeRTOS :)

This is the PineTime. A companion for your Linux smartphone, and new side-project of ours. More news coming in the future...

(If you have experience with FreeRTOS or mbed, and are interested, please get in touch!)

♲ The new twitter recommendation algorithm means that just replying to an account boosts their profile. When someone is being an ass, ask yourself if telling them they're an ass is worth being their PR agent for free.

Google Chrome on Android is almost usable! I wish Firefox Mobile would get their smartphone UI together.

We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.

Which is your primary browser on your computer?

Remember that Brave, Opera and Edge are Chromium derivatives. I consider Safari to be separate since it's Webkit and not Blink.

Retoot this to get more votes in.

At the end of the day Google is becoming so dominant on the web that they practically *are* the web, so you either use Google products or you avoid touching a computer. I can't quit Google entirely (Chrome DevTools, GMaps, YouTube are the big ones for me).

How do you deal with something that builds amazing products but also does it in kind of a sleazy way? And maybe is becoming way too powerful? I suppose you become a tech vegan sneaking occasional bites of cheese pizza.

"Basically, software remains vulnerable because the benefits created by insecure products far outweigh the downsides. Once that changes, software security will improve—but not a moment before."

♲ programmers love to use titles like "architect" or "engineer" or "designer" instead of the more accurate "plumber" or "custodian" or "firefighter"

The #PineTab is a $79 Linux tablet
by Pine64, the same manufacturer of the #PinePhone and PineBook low-cost Linux devices.

This low-power Linux machine, however, has some hidden perks: for example, via an internal m.2 slot it supports SATA and LTE expansions in a somewhat modular way. And now it boots postmarketOS with several UIs, such as KDE #PlasmaMobile and Purism's "Phosh".

You can read more about it in our latest post:

Another ethical mobile phone initiative for my European friends.

The US is severely lagging in such options.

♲ It's a fully ungoogled OS and online services.
Yet it can run most #Android Android apps.
It's available on 4 different smartphone models, premium grade refurbished.
--> and public orders are now available 😀
Taste a more ethical mobile experience now!…………
