Recently tried #phosh 0.20.0~beta1-1 from #debian experimental on my #mobian #pinephone, and it has several improvements.

I can now turn on/off wifi from the pin entry lockscreen, see more detailed battery info, and various other widgets.

The biggest improvement is that I no longer accidentally trigger the app-switcher when trying to enable/disable the keyboard, as the app switcher bar is now a swipe-up gesture instead of a tap. Yay!

Nice little improvements, thanks #phosh developers!

If you want to find out how I changed a lot of little things to get PeerTube videos working on my blog - It was all committed in the last two days. A lot of other little CSS/LiquidScript stuff too. It's all yours now.

Do you know someone who might be interested in this job opening at the ? "The FSFE is hiring a Senior Project Manager "

If you're having trouble with your Gmail account in Thunderbird today, it might be due to Google now requiring OAuth 2.0 authentication.

Thunderbird SHOULD transition your account automatically, but if you're not able to connect, try going into your Gmail Account's Server Settings and manually changing "Authentication Method" to OAuth2 (it should NOT be "Normal.")

More information about this change can be found here:

As you might have noticed, PeerTube has a plugin for chatting during livestreams (screenshot below). It's really nice!

If you do livestreaming on PeerTube, ask your server admin if the plugin can be added, it makes livestreams a lot more fun. There is more info about the plugin at

The creator of the plugin is @John_Livingston and they have a roadmap of more features they want to add to the plugin. You can help make this happen by donating to Livingston's LiberaPay account at

One single type of payment terminal (the Verifone H5000), a rather old platform, officially announced End of Life 2018 with some sort of support until 2023, brought down big parts of card payment all over Germany as one of the embedded certificates expired unnoticed on Tuesday.

There was an interesting conversation about just making chatty natively support encryption over any communication medium (like text secure used to do). I recorded it here.

Luca Bonissi bought a Lenovo laptop which came with a pre-installed Windows license he didn't need. He asked for refund, Lenovo refused.

After a 2-year court case, Lenovo had to pay 20,000 euros in damages for abusive behavior.

I recently announced that Sequoia has a web of trust implementation. Today, I piblished the first version of a specification. Incredibly neither PGP nor GnuPG specifies how they implement WoT! My document tries to address all of the details and includes implementation advice (an efficient implementation is non-obvious, but happily not complicated).

Chatty 5.0~beta is out!

This is the first Chatty released with integrated MMS support!

vvmd and vvmplayer have been accepted in @debian unstable! They provide visual voicemail notification on Linux phones and have been contributed by @mobian dev @kop316 . Thanks and congrats!
