If the current trend over the most recent months is a stable one, my #Mastodon followers will surpass my #Twitter followers within the next year. Go for it! ๐Ÿ’ช

The seventy-fourth edition of my weekly collection of news about #LinuxPhones (@PINE64 #PinePhone, #PinePhonePro, @purism #Librem5 and such), #LinBits, is out!


This week in Linux Phones: #libhandy 1.5.0, #Fluffychat 1.0, #NemoMobile running on two more devices, #postmarketOS adds support for another Snapdragon 845-based phone, #LoRa backplate fun and more!

Seen the hype. Read some reviews. Installed @MXLinux and guess what...really impressed. Within minutes of installing had running and edited a video with my brother. Layout logical, clear, straightforward.

My new recommended flavour for newbies, and likely my swap for the machine next time I have a fatal error. Though my laptop will still be ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป

@gray just standard thankfully, and the feedback has been useful so hopefully we will pass on our free Secunderabad attempt...๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

@athairbirb I have a video of Small Child cycling in October 2020 which would have made him 3.25 years old. He was on his balance bike from 2 until then and absolutely loved it.

@athairbirb Both ours LOVED balance bikes, and I believe it helped them with 'real' bikes. They both now bike to school every day, 2km there and 2km back.

In fact, they've been doing it since youngest was aged 2 on balance bike, admittedly at that age he needed a helping hand sometimes but from 2.5 years onwards did the whole trip and back himself.

@b847c1960 @athairbirb @kev I've never used it before - had always assumed that there was extremely low risk partly due to low market share and partly due to the system controls.

I'm assuming that I *have* been naive!!

@athairbirb I'm just going to install something as a box-ticking exercise (will check out clamAV); I'm a bit more interested as to why they think linux systems need antivirus in order to be secure. Perhaps I've been naive?!

Baffled as to why my company failed the UK's assessment for not having anti-virus on . It was a hard fail.

Never come across this before - and last year we passed despite explicitly stating no antivirus on linux machines.

Assessors are


Anybody else come across this?

Considering trying #PostmarketOS on my #PinePhone .. has anyone gotten #Signal (desktop or android app) to work?

Mastodon usually has a dark theme by default, but you can switch to a light theme or high contrast theme if you prefer.

Go to Preferences > Appearance > Site Theme, choose the one you want and click "Save Changes".

Some instances have additional themes too. Ask your admin if you want more themes added.

Welcome to #Mastodon, here are couple tricks:
- find the content to follow, no company is shoving content into your face here
- initially check as many profiles as you can and follow if you enjoy their toots
- joinmastodon.org/communities lists instances
- /about page of each instance has "Discover users" + "what's happening": great way to find profiles to follow.
- click on "star" if you enjoyed the post, "boost" if you want your followers to enjoy it too
- block spammy accounts right away
