We are living in an age where everything from clothing to furniture to technology is cheap and disposable. The assumption is that nothing lasts, so one might as well buy the cheapest thing and throw it away when it inevitably breaks. Nowhere is this more true than the phone market, but it's something we want to change with the Librem 5.

If you have a .org domain name: go renew it now. For the full 10 years.

Registration rights for .org were just bought by a private equity firm. And as part of that contract, the price caps were removed.

Anything in .org will get much more expensive, soon.

A ten year renewal will cost you a bit over a hundred bucks. Which is probably less than one year will cost you in the very near future.

If someone's looking for an app idea, I would love a nice GTK Mumble client. The audio quality is really nice, especially for calls with a lot of participants, but the UI of the Qt app is terrible.

ssh is probably the most underrated tool I use every day. The capability for me to sit basically anywhere on the planet with an internet connection and remotely get stuff done over a secure connection is a boon. I don't think any other tool comes close to the usefulness of ssh.

We did it! We came together as a community and met our fundraising goal to defend software freedom from patent litigation.

Next up comes the hard part - winning this lawsuit and setting precedent. Stay tuned for updates as we progress forward

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.

Help me get there and I'll bring back . ;)

Will I be able to sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade my Librem 5 or will that feature be locked down like on the Ubuntu phone? @purism
