Hey everyone, I started a new blog with a focus on Sega's 8-bit consoles. I would love it if you checked it out. 8bitservicegames.com

Just wanted to update everyone that Braillynn has made a new blog dedicated to Sega's retro 8-bit consoles. You can check out the blog at 8bitservicegames.com/

It looks like our former domain was purchased and now it sells random wares.

writing hasn't faded away. We're sorry to anyone who enjoyed the blog that we just up and vanished on you and hope you can forgive us. For those of you who enjoyed Braillynn's writing, we'll be sure to let you know what her inevitable next project is. Again, thank you all and we hope you have happy holidays and an exciting new year.

We didn't have the funds necessary to move to a bigger platform which was upsetting to us. The author Braillynn felt like they didn't have enough knowledge about Linux to write articles about the goings on in the Linux world. They wrote some articles that they felt were off topic or that the community would not benefit from. She fell into a deep depression and eventually lost interest in the site as her mental health took priority. The site was a great learning experience for her and her love of

Hello everyone,

Long time no talk. Some of you may know that our site is no longer here, we haven't been around for around for over a year and so much has happened in that time. We want to thank everyone who supported our work and give you all an update as to where we went. We had some pretty big plans for the site and we wanted to move to a bigger platform to bring more features and a way for everyone to be more involved. However, it didn't work out. There's a few reason's for that too..

While not FOSS related, we're going to be posting an interview we did with the team who is working on localizing Summon Knight Swordcraft Story 3 for the GBA, in the next few days. We're also going to be posting a personal blog post regarding why the site has been so quiet. We thank you for your support.

Has our dream of a Linux dumbphone come true?! Back in September of last year we wrote the following article: librefree.me/i-want-a-linux-du and it appears our prayers have been answered in the WiPhone! wiphone.io/ you can find more information in the following video from our friend Jose Briones(whose podcast we were on earlier this year): youtube.com/watch?v=oj7eRbCRfp

Hello everyone, just a heads up, I won't be reviewing the Librem 5 USA as I really don't have anything good to say about the product. With the release of the PinePhone Pro, I don't see any reason to get the Librem 5 now(especially given the price difference and lack of performance).

In a huge victory for human rights, the European Parliament calls for a ban on biometric mass surveillance and facial recognition. 😀🥳 Let's keep fighting for privacy! 💪

Congratulations to @PINE64 for the #pinephonepro, the new device has a lot of potential (support GLES 3.2, Vulkan, OpenCL), maybe Linux phone games soon?

It's also mindblowing that they managed to sneak the #pinebookpro SoC into a device.


If you see this when updating your device today (running Arch Linux ARM on @PINE64 #PinePhone / #PineTab):

:: Starting full system upgrade...
:: Replace linux-pine64 with pine64/linux-megi? [Y/n]
:: Replace linux-pine64-headers with pine64/linux-megi-headers? [Y/n]

Allow it to do so, we've renamed our kernel package. Once update is done, you can reboot as normal.

Improvements for those of us who run daily on their :
- the media player allows to skip in songs/podcasts (by @ollieparanoid)
- headphones show a different icon
- music player gets muted on headphone unplug

While Mobian does not directly support running #Android applications, it seems that some users find running them via #waydroid on the #pinephone surprisingly nice. Our wiki has some installation instructions if you want to try it out.


@FreePietje You're looking at the flashback picture of the Pinephone (original) announcement ;)

The team at @LinusTech@twitter.com reviewed our newly launched #Fairphone 4 to uncover exactly what makes the Fairphone different. From tech specs to fair specs – this review covered it all 📱🌿
