I'm finding a lot of good software on #FDroid lately. I even have an open source text messaging app now (QKSMS). Noice.
My friends and I had a successful good long chat using #Jitsi last night. Yay!
Can't test it, as I only have the free version of Protonmail. Oh well, good to know it's there if I decide to upgrade one day.
Protonmail has a "bridge" now for using their account with a desktop client. Yay! I'm going to test that out now.
Any tips on the best place to buy a refurbished Google phone? I'm not buying straight from Google because I want to save money, and especially don't want to give my money to Google.
I got a Pixel 3a from Ebay, and liked it, but it was locked to the wrong network, so I could only test it on wifi. (😠 )
It's phone experiment time. I bought a used iPhone 7, and it's annoying the heck out of me, even though I like some things. So now I'm going to buy a used Pixel 3a and see if it's any less irritating. Then I'll return the one that loses.
Also, watching review videos about the phones is useless, because they are all about the perks of google cloud stuff versus apple cloud stuff, when I want to turn all that off and use it as little as possible.
Hoping this will be my last non-Linux phone!
Not the coolest time for the internet to go out!
PSA: make sure the battery backup for the internet is plugged in, and avoid loss of power to the ONT internet box as much as possible! We flipped the wrong breaker, and after that the internet wouldn't come back on. Now we have to wait for a tech to come fix it.
