It's been 3 months since my last login to facebook. Using a platform lends credibility to it. It struck me recently how much YouTube I consume. I think I should try to cut it off: there are other platforms (and some "youtubers" have mirrored content to other sites). Surely, I'll miss *some* things...

Stayed up late,
like a phone with a bad kernel.
My head shakes,
when I sneeze, it feels vernal.
Now I wake,
like my soul, the cold's eternal:
Wonder if they'll inter me when stuck in the afterwinter.

You miss some detail. Jews rest on the 7th day, Christians gather on the 1st, the day of the resurrection. So yes, Sunday is not actually part of the weekend. But it's convenient. 😎

@PINE64 Other (I think ordinary) wear and tear from infrequent opening would be the clip closest to the dip switches starting to wear both frame-side and back plate side. So maybe a third thumbnail slot in that corner as well... at that point might as well put one in each corner.

Anyone else crack their back plate like this?
Maybe this is from dropping it and/or opening it too much.
I think the design could be fixed if @PINE64 made a backplate that had thumbnail slots on both sides.

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).

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