Because I’ve received my recently, I’m testing various operating systems with it.

During these tests, setting up wifi is very cumbersome because I use a very long random password. That’s why I’ve created a little script ‘wifi’ that I copy to the sd-card and start it from the command line to make a wifi connection with my home network.

I just want to know where my #pinephone is...Is it at the border? Is it passed customs? Is it lost...? Is it being held because it's from China? It's going on 1 month since last tracking update...Jan 28/30th... I'm not alone in this situation but that does not really make it easier

Boring stuff regarding Linux.Pizza, costs and stuff 

February Community Update: production currently at a stand-still - expect production delays; #pinebookpro NVMe new adapter + fix; growing OS choice; #PinePhone software status; phone FCC+CE certification; #PineTab delayed (again); and much more.

Back from . I've hold a real in my hands. WOW! I really like it. Hope to receive mine soon.

And as a bonus, @PINE64 has given me a free pinephone protection case.

War eben bei @PINE64 auf der #FOSDEM:
Die Qualität des #PinePhone hat mich echt überrascht. Das Display ist super und die Taster an der Seite haben einen angenehmen Druckpunkt. Es ist etwas groß für mich, aber mit @ubports und einer kleinen Tastatur definitiv als mobiles SSH Terminal nutzbar.

Because my has not arrived yet, I'll go to tomorrow, hoping that I can hold a pinephone for a while at the @PINE64 stand 😉
