remember to keep your devkits in comfortable working temperatures. For the Librem5 devkit I recommend the biggest fan you can acquire because that sucker gets hot af

If I’ve seemed quiet today it’s because I’m trying to find a way of building Glimpse without installing all the required dependencies on my pristine system.

It has been interesting tinkering with Vagrant and Ansible to make that happen. The results will be shared in the “helper scripts” repo once I figure it out.

So far, so good. I'm waiting for Syncthing to copy across my personal files but so far the policy of "use flatpaks in userspace and apt for lower-level tools" seems to be working out well so far 🙂

Success! Turns out I could fix Wi-fi by downloading & installing a deb package instead of spending an hour hunting down a file I need to put in a very specific location. I could enable the “non-free” repo to keep it updated, but ugh... effort.

As it’s nearly 9:30pm now I’m going to leave my completely vanilla installation until after I’ve had a good night’s sleep and have the enthusiasm to make everything work the way I want it to. ✨

My first mistake was trying to install everything with UEFI still enabled. So, having to try that again! 🤦‍♂️

I suspect my pet peeve of having to download a firmware file to make my already installed Intel WiFi drivers work is going to recur, but thankfully this time I have a USB-C Ethernet adapter that seems to be working.

My cunning plan this evening is to finally bite the bullet and install Debian 10 on my productivity laptop.

The extra challenge I'm setting myself over the next week or so is trying to use Flatpaks for programs I use every day for things like email, spreadsheets, playing audio, etc

At this point, we still need to list requirements and design the feature at a higher level before starting implementation work.

This happens at governance.funkwhale.audio/d/s

The good news is that Podcasts support is on our roadmap (governance.funkwhale.audio/d/s) and likely to be scheduled for the 0.21 release, which is due by the end of 2019 (or early 2020).

In terms of implementation skills and work, we'll need UX and UI design, API/Python dev (for the back-end) and Javascript dev for the web UI. And people willing to review / test all the corresponding contributions.

But right now, what we need is consensus on what "Podcast support" actually means before we move on to the implementation ;)

So, if you're willing to help, what you can do is going to governance.funkwhale.audio/d/s and share your use cases, ideas and feedback on what have already been discussed there.

As soon as we have basic consensus on the feature, we can start the implementation work. I'd love to see a hackathon focused on this topic and I really think it could help to achieve this!

In lighter news I’ve started binge-watching “House” instead of periodically seeing random episodes.

It hasn’t reached the cliched “It’s not lupus” stage yet, and season 1 is starting out strong 👍

An official report for the Dutch government concluded:

“(Microsoft Office) systematically collects data on a large scale ... covertly, without informing people. … Microsoft does not offer any choice with regard to the amount of data, or possibility to switch off the collection.”

Don't use Microsoft Office, use LibreOffice instead 👍

It's free, open and you can get it here:

This policy shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone..

"Due to the increased usage of #OpenBSD/amd64, as well as the age and practicality of most i386 hardware, only easy and critical security fixes are backported to i386. The project has more important things to focus on."
