The wishing the a merry Christmas and a happy GNU year, by SMS from the command-line. 😃 PureOS and @postmarketOS both running . The script on the Librem 5 is using mmcli commands to send SMS messages. @purism

From the telnet man page: "The source code is not comprehensible." In case you were wondering. 😄

Meh. Just wanted to login, but no, must first see this list of logos of the things I'm trying to avoid. Well, as long as the email option is still there, I suppose there is still hope. They don't own everyone, not yet. :-)

@purism I was unable to find the place where you explain how that funding will be used (allocating internal developer time to work on the apps, paying upstream developers…). Can you point me to that page?

This is funny 😄 "How many GNU/Linux users are needed to change a light bulb?" gnu.org/fun/jokes/users-lightb

Search engines should be the business of libraries, not companies.

Starting a phone call from the terminal on a Birch. This call is to the good old "Fröken ur" speaking-clock service telling us the current time in Swedish. Fröken ur apparently existed since 1934 but it was not until 2020 that I learned how to call her from the terminal. 😃 Thanks @dos for the tip that xdg-open could be used in this way. @purism

@purism @agx @dos which parts of software are most important to test right now, for someone who has a Birch phone and wants to help?

Imagine there existed a cooperative dedicated to bringing GNOME forward, and its members worked full time on polishing the ecosystem.

If the designers and engineers announced their projects, and a communication team kept you posted of progress.

Would you throw money at it? And how would you contribute?

🔄 boosts welcome

@geary @gnome @purism Just got the email client running on a Birch. This is a Geary version built from Purism's git repo source.puri.sm/Librem5/geary (I tried the upstream version also but got into trouble with the initial account setup dialog that did not fit the screen). Anyway, glad to see this is working!
