last shot for today, 741 left. at least 200 are solved when filling a GND plane, so around 500 left for real. most of USB, displays, main power, audio, ethernet is done. a lot of fiddly stuff left for the charger/battery cells controls and the LPC (microcontroller). this board might look unusually bulky because i always tried to choose components that are hand-serviceable, so avoided BGA, QFNs and passives smaller than 0603.

I wrote an article about the redesign of MNT Reform https://mntre.com/media/news_md/2019-05-20-reintroducing-reform.html
#FreeSoftware has a lot of potential in the developing world.
In rural India, 12 villages use #FreedomBox to host free digital services. Activists have re-purposed old computers into FreedomBoxes, mounted them on posts, and served entire villages with free wi-fi and digital services.
These rural #FreedomBox networks got covered in the Times of India.
