Just installed /e/ on my good old MotoX Play. It comes with the latest security patches. While I love the MotoX Play hardware, I will not use it as a daily driver anymore since 16 is available for my , but it is good to have an up to date backup. @e_mydata

The most meaningful thing I did this year: I donated peripheral blood stem cells which helped somebody else to survive a terrible disease.

Had to leave today. I failed meeting several people I wanted to meet, but also had some unexpected encounters. I only attended 2 talks, but I held my first lightning talk and I attended a cool SMD soldering workshop. I had a blast, but will prepare myself better next time.

Will anybody bring a Bangle.js to ? I would like to have a short look at the hardware. (Will not disassemble, I promise!)

The Bangle.js hackable smart watch looks really tempting. It would be an instant buy for me, if I had not bought an Amazfit Bit just a few months ago which pretty much serves all my needs (but is not open).

There was just no way Arduino IDE and I would become friends. I set up ( on ( today and it is just such a joy to work with. Finally I am getting stuff done on microcontrollers.

Why I start hating to build free software are comments like these:

"Gadgetbridge always fetch wrong data from my watch. It seems like there is no plan to solve this issue. I'm totally disappointed."
