@cassidyjames Congrats on the release!
This is the prime example for why you need to be able to at least open devices. With devices where everything is glue you can't even remove the dust. And oh boy was that necessary! #RightToRepair

Looks like my Sony Xperia X Compact Android phone is starting to have some performance issues - likely the RAM is going out (apps freezing constantly, phone turning off after performing basic tasks, etc). Kind of disappointing to be honest, this phone is barely 2 years old.
Now the search for a new one begins, and unfortunately it's still the case that there are basically NO good small Android phones. Xperia XZ2 Compact looks like the only real option, but Sony kind of burned me on quality.

This is something @Ben_Cates@twitter.com kinda drilled into my head as senior web engineer at System76: it might not be your fault, but it is definitely your problem.
It sucks, but it’s true so often. 😭
@CassidyJames@twitter.com Totally not your fault. But totally your problem now too (as smart oven manufacturer).
Anyone know of a good alternative to Mastodon for peer-to-peer activity pub? I found this list, but wondering if anyone knows if one is better than another... I'd like to experiment with running my own server, but Mastodon honestly looks pretty bloated.
Fun Sunday read talking about Tiling Desktop Managers, etc. https://bitcannon.net/post/pro-desktop/
The issue with the upcoming #USCensus regarding the citizenship question is overblown.
There are only *two* things that *must* be answered on the census form: The physical address in question (which is usually pre-filled), and the number of alive & born humans in the address on April 1st.
All other questions are optional.
