So I've been building a 100% analog polyphonic synthesizer with an unique twist. To use only vacuum tube era technology from the 1930s.

Over 300 neon gas diodes create the sound you hear. Pretty awesome for technology from 100 years ago.

Still a work-in-progress, but I wanted to post a video of it with the innards spread out across the workbench. : }

I call it the "Neon String Machine"

I'd really like to thank jenneron[1] for their contributions to #postmarketOS! 🎉

They have been the 2nd highest committer to pmOS over the past 6 months. Recent contributions include adding new devices, simplifying the boot process for many devices, and adding new ways to support booting on others.

They've also added something like 26(!!!) new device ports since they began contributing to pmOS 🤯

@planetmozilla I wish Mozilla would start treating Linux phones as first class citizen, Even with just community built fixes Firefox is great on a Linux phone and the primary app platform as there aren't many native apps for 3rd party services.

Mozilla should look at need and start catering to the Linux phone community as displacing the duoploy in mobile ecosystem is in everyone's best interest.

unfortunately cannot join pixelfed when using Gnome Browser on vpn with cloudflare capture. It fails proving a secure connection as in it does not work :-/

I did the catcha like 8 times, please find alternate method to cloudflare which does aggressive ip blocking.

Apparently Not Human - so depressing

Testing Epiphany alpha flatpak on the L5 a little crashy but testing this ad blocker extension showed its very thorough!

I thought it would be fun to have 6GB memory on my librem L5 phone using zram and filling it up:

python3 -c 'a="a"*1386**3; input()'

while having 10 or so apps open and using them all. Seemed to work fine.

38 is looking at providing image For mobile devices.

The Phosh (Phone Shell) has been started by Purism.

We're happy to see broader adoption of the on 🚀
