@Fairphone This is _not_ a good thing. Given that you did not get updated blobs from Qualcomm, it is putting your users at risk from exploits that have been public for years.
The only right move - for an online phone - is to recycle the Fairphone 2 and get a new phone with full security support.
Got a USB #midi keyboard without a #synth and then got buyer's remorse? Add a Pi plus DAC to it and add that audio out you decided you didn't need originally. Can confirm this works nicely : https://github.com/dwhinham/mt32-pi but remember that an MT32 has an empty patch on channel 1 so set it to soundfont mode or nonstandard mapping in the ini file.

This is fascinating. I'm not this hardcore, but the way he describes it, maybe it's not so bad? The credit-card-sized dumbphone is neat.
This is a long shot, but I want to put the power of social media and federation to the test.
My son wants to become a commercial airline pilot when he’s grown up. It would be awesome if we could find a commercial pilot in the fediverse that we can follow and ask questions of.
If everyone who reads this could boost it, it would be much appreciated and it would mean the world to my son if he could get in touch with a real-life commercial pilot! ✈️
🇬🇧 With #chatcontrol, the EU wants all of your private e-mails and messages to be subjected to real-time #masssurveillance. If algorithms detect suspicious content you are to be reported to the police. This video explains.
So my latest toot/birdsite posts might make you think I’m against the concept of cryptocurrencies in general. I’m not. For the same reason I don’t hold a grudge against Merkle trees, DAGs, or public-key cryptography.
What I am against is Proof of Work (PoW) – used in Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc. – which constitutes an unconscionable, unsustainable, and deliberate waste of energy. PoW is not a requirement for cryptocurrencies. For a more sustainable implementation, for example, see Nano.
