The one thing I really researched before getting my pinephone was that it would work with my existing carrier. Of course, now that I have it, they say I absolutely cannot activate it on their network. Even after playing with PostmarketOS and finding it plenty usable, no mobile will probably mean the end of my adventures with it.
Attention young whipper-snappers fresh out of comp sci 101. Just because a thing is "old" does not mean it is bad. This should be obvious when you're making that argument at a 25 year old project.
Just had this exchange:
User: PHP should replace autotools with CMake. (not committing to do the work)
Me: Why? What problem does it solve? Every third party extensions would have to be updated to reflect such a change.
User: autotools is old.
This is a really significant improvement bringing the #PinePhone one step closer to being daily-driver ready. Alongside battery life improvements, 60hz responsive LCD and touch panel, stable BT and functional convergence docking - we're getting there.
Bravo to all developers!
So apparently a single domain going down on #Apple servers makes one unable to launch non-Apple apps.
People have been sneaked a cloud OS without even realizing it, being at a complete mercy of a single, central entity.
This is a microcosm of where closed-source walled gardens inevitably lead.
#RMS was right.
Apparently Apple's new ARM silicon?
Doesn't support *any* virtualization.
Not just Docker, but any VMs period.

I'm honestly starting to wonder, with republicans claiming that "votes were found [for dems] at 4am," which morning this week we'll wake up with millions of votes "found" in the middle of the night for trump. Something along that line is coming. If they're accusing dems of it history has shown they'll do it themselves.
This is a big part of why I still think Biden's changes are no better than 50/50 for actually getting to the White House.
