The newest game I've been working on, ODGŁOS, is finally available to play! A cute owl, the history of electronic music, shapeshifting snakes and intergalactic journeys inside the Polish Radio Experimental Studio - all in a stop-motion interactive story :) You'll need a browser, headphones and 30 minutes to spare. Have fun!

time!
My name is dos; some call me Sebastian. I made dozens of small silly video and some slightly less small ones too. I'm one half of @holypangolin studio. Sometimes I pretend to be a musician, but don't get fooled. I'm also a living encyclopedia on a Polish rock band "Perfect". Trams are cooler than trains. The more caramel, the better. I've been using GNU/#Linux on phones for ages, which led me to work with @purism on the Librem 5. btw I use Arch, but I ❤️ Debian!

Currently #Debian linux is going through a massive migration project to rely on a 64 bit time rather than a 32 bit time (to avoid #y2k38). Debian has these migrations from time to time. About 10 years ago there was a migration to leap a C++ ABI change. Every time these come up I'm amazed at how well executed they are and by how the core dpkg/apt tools have proven their fundamental over and over again for 30 (!!!!) years. I am so thankful to everyone involved in Debian for such a reliable OS.

@agx worked on making #feedbackd a bit more useful and convenient. Some of this landed already and is targeting the next #phosh release
while others might take a bit longer (as they e.g. depend on a calls bug fix release). A short 🧵 👇

So far you had to pull out 's top and bottom bar quiet a bit to make it unfold. That's kind of o.k. on 📱 like the or but can be cumbersome on larger phones like the or tablets like the . I've put out an MR for which adds a fling so you can also fold/unfold with a fast swipe. Here's a short video demoing this for different screen sizes:

TIL: It's surprisingly hard to design a board for such a simple schematic that will be cheap to manufacture 😫

Had to update my userChrome.css for the new version of a bit - the necessary changes turned out to be trivial, but it still managed to nerd-snipe me into making the whole thing a bit more robust 😅

i'm always baffled when new things launch and they don't have a fediverse link but instead still on birdsite and maybe instagram, it feels somehow antiquated

I can finally use my #Librem5 phone camera with #pipewire, making it available to many applications through common interface. A big step to #Librem5, a great step for Freedom.

Burnout in the FOSS community is real, and I'm glad that it's something that is being talked about more in blogs and conferences. There is a different flavor of burnout and emotional toll when you are sacrificing for a cause you believe in (especially in FOSS where people are often working for free or at below market rate). Working for a cause you believe in brings the highest highs when things are going well, but the lowest lows when they go badly.

#FOSS #burnout

#postmarketOS just landed the last MR needed to make the #libcamera + #PipeWire camera stack work on the #Librem5 and #PinePhone by default, using the new software ISP shipped in libcamera 0.3.
So if you have such a device: just update and go install apps like Snapshot, Warp, Decoder etc.

Note that this does *not* replace #megapixels or #millipixels - those continue to be the default camera apps.

Whenever I have to deal with on devices that formerly ran android I realize how super simple things like flashing and debugging are on the compared to that.

No odd partition schemes, no super sensitive boot loader that gives up on the first glitch. Just and if all else fails .

like fr this idea that you can run the entire proprietary Android stack under the hood with outdated and hackily patched forks of Linux middleware and call the result a Linux phone is insulting.

there's a reason it's called libhybris

chromium-review.googlesource.c is finally marked as "Ready To Submit" and has appropriate review completed.

This means portal camera through pipewire/libcamera could be finally making it's way into Chromium at last!

Turns out that my Librerapay account was misconfigured for a while and couldn't accept any payments. I've fixed that now, so if you ever tried to support my FLOSS work through there and bounced off, I guess now is a good time to try again 😅
