I've been a big fan of Keybase for the last few years. It's helped me create secure backups of some things like dotfiles, and the messaging is a great way to share passwords with team members. Well - I just got an invite to Cyph from one of the founders (I'm guessing they saw me complaining somewhere about having to find an alternative now that it's owned by Zoom).
Looks like I can invite new users as well - so if you're interested: https://cyph.app/register/uj4FcJSZqkxsOkx

@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.
