The CADT model of software design: just rewrite it!
Note that I do encourage (on the consumer's part) fixing bugs over reporting them, but I covet stability from maintainers.

The new postmarketOS v21.12 SP2 service pack is out! This release finally brings MMS to stable with chatty 0.6 and the latest #sxmo and #phosh.


Made my own recipe for tonight. (Rather than following some recipe online).
"Try not to curdle the eggnog. After you've curdled it, blend until consistent." 😅 If it's any good, maybe I'll share it.

PinePhone community poll results are now available. Thank you to all those who took part in the questionnaire!

Today, I learned how to leave a channel in : You just type /PART

Also, does anybody else like the alternative ? I'm tired of being all alone in at (occasionally, someone will join, message, and part while I'm away).

Checking out a cool open source project, I notice the author's email domain is unfamiliar.

...2 minutes later "I should learn Russian"

okay, now my #pinePDA is running sxmo since @kelbot gave me the magic swipe gesture to make it go landscape.

multiple workspaces, the toot-lab in one via firefox in fullscreen mode and zoom at 50%, and this is quite the little pocket computer!

Posted an update on gemini, featuring and other such developments.

I usually publish an update on my gemini capsule on the 22nd each month, but it'll be late this month. Exciting stuff though with a wvkbd and work on suggpicker: a new suggestions selector to complement the keyboard.

If you've been exposed to Moxie Marlinkspike frequent rants about how people are dumb and lazy and we should have centralized systems for their happiness, André Staltz wrote a very good counterpoint (from @makeworld )

Sxmo 1.7.0 was just released, featuring most of all lots of fixes and small improvements that should make daily usage easier. Thanks to the many contributors!

Release & upgrade notes:

#sxmo #pinephone

Saw this comment about theme flat design that rings true:

> changing buttons to be plain icons means removing crucially important contrast between elements and weakening visual cues to the user that things are clickable. In effect it makes it harder for the brain to “parse” the interface the person is looking at and leads to users having a harder time navigating the interface

(Personally, I think icon-only buttons are a necessary evil for mobile)

My status update: and changes (seen here first), better mobile support in IRC, 3.15 upgrade experience.

Trying out #deltachat because it makes sense to me (even if I don't understand the inner workings), being a heavy email user myself. Also avoids problem of convincing people to adopt something new in order to be useful.

I understand the chats are kept separately from your emails, which I like because I was concerned that short chat messages would clutter up my email folders.
