Latha math dhut! I'm Ruaraidh, from the Gàidhaeltachd 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿.

I have Gàidhlig (though not fluent, yet). I can understand even less Gaeilge. Though will mainly chat in Scottish-English.

Many interests, currently they are;
Gàidhealtachd culture, history and language.
Motorsport and the natural world encompass other joy.
Destiny 2 is currently my jam on the xbox.
Attempting to remove relying on big-tech too.

I'm currently working on using the @PINE64 #PineTime's 4MB external flash memory to free up space in the internal memory (512KB).

I've made a lot of progress recently and am now able to test new watchfaces that load their images and fonts from the SPI flash!

That's #Scotland. Wow, that was nice! A man just turned his van round to ask me if I was ok. I'm sitting in front of the closed village shop, happily (as I thought) typing away, but probably my face looked exhausted. I hate typing on my phone.

Android, Fairphone repair, help request 

Big win today; repaired my #Fairphone3 with a new bottom module.

At the same time upgraded the camera moduels to the ones in 3+

However, my front camera (top module) is only 4mp and not 16 as advertised 🤔
Most confusing.
A look on the forum shows this unresolved problem (
Thoughts? I can only imagine it's because I run a 3rd-party OS.

p.s. I don't mean the 48mp sensor, it's grand 😁

F1 - Porpoising (micro-spoiler) 

So the teams still haven't got on-top of the porpoising this year.
Hamilton's back destroyed at Baku and seemingly more drivers announcing that "something" needs to happen.

I wonder if something like the Renault mass-damper of 2006 could return but specifically for porpoising.

I know people want active-suspension buuut imagine the cost-cap implicatios on that alone.

I can't see a minimum ride-height being implemented, that'd be rubbish.

En attendant patiemment la nouvelle version, si on faisait mumuse avec un firmware de test qui contient un affichage style Casio G7710 ? 😁
