I'm really looking forward to being able to limp along with a low battery thanks to a powerbank on the @purism Librem 14, thanks to the USB C that can do PD. When I forget to charge the Librem 13 after not using it for a day or 2, I have to wait for it to charge before taking it to the couch. This USB C port will make that not such a big deal.
Whew! I'm happy to report that I was able to get my battery life on FP3 /e/ back up to 3 days per charge. Turns out that ambient light features suck a ton of juice. (I leave it on, but it just flashes notifications, and don't use any sensor data.) I also needed to disable mobile data standby. This is supposed to help with with connection hand overs, but it just keeps your mobile data line always up, even when connected to wifi. Just a waste. Nice to have this thing back to long battery life!
The Planck EZ looks tasty as well. I have my doubts about a 40% keyboard though.
Well I bought it, so in about 7 weeks, I'll know how it is.
Ok Fediverse, what do you think about this. This is the ZSA Moonlander keyboard. I love it, but as someone who is not a traditional touch typist, but who can touch type using a hybrid finger peck method, I am curious if the split design would work. I do have a UHK and I split it and tried typing, and I did fine. (80+ wpm) So the question is, should I commit to a more ergonomic typing position? This thing is super compelling to me.
One of the things I've loved about the Librem 13 was being able to control the CPU clock and turbo functionality. It lets you have more control over your thermal conditions than otherwise possible. Well the same is possible on Windows 10. You need to edit your registry, but after doing so, the turbo boost portion becomes exposed in advanced power settings. Very nice, and it has made it so that I can keep my Onemix at around 30C and I have not noticed any performance loss.
This is a really compelling image of the Librem 5. Phosh has come such a long way in such a relatively short time. As the basis for everything to come, the Librem 5 is a fantastic show piece. True convergence, with so much more potential possible. I've already started working on a few linux programs to help with my transition to it, and I can't wait to get it, and move forward full steam ahead. Really looking forward to the implementation of traditional Suspend.
I'm grateful now and forever for the Lord Jesus Christ. He is our Savior, Redeemer, and Master. Because of Him we are able to return to the Father, by following on His covenant path and enduring to the end. We are able to fall and get back up. Because of Him hope is real. #givethanks
I am grateful for my family. I'm grateful for the many ways they help me to become a better person. My life would be a shadow of what it is today without them. #givethanks
That awkward moment, when you want to be happy for Apple's mind boggling accomplishment in the M1, but the fact that RAM is now absolutely not accessible, and every little fault within the SoC will necessitate an entirely new mainboard, coupled with the knowledge that Apple will horde this technology (as they should) and only their products will be able to take advantage of it make me sad. Worse? Intel, AMD, and even ARM have a long way to go to catch up.
#Lollypop is seriously the best GUI based music player on Linux. The only thing that I wish it had that it doesn't is a separate volume control instead of the system volume being the only way control volume.
Are you using Windows? Want to make sure it is private as possible (with out going to mega extremes)? Check out WPD.app and Tinywall. A Windows Privacy Dashboard and Windows Firewall respectively. They do exactly as they say do, and do it well. I've recorded network traffic, and confirm nothing but what you allow leaves. They make Windows private again.
Man, if I didn't need the standard modularity of Gnome, I would love to use Elementary OS 6. It is shaping up to look really good! I wish Pantheon supported gnome extensions like dash to panel, but the team at #ElementaryOS is doing some serious beautiful work! I might not be using it now, but I'm happy I sent money there way in the past.
