It's that time of the month again -- the July 2020 Update Blog is live!

Highlights:
- #PinePhone @postmarketOS Edition preorders live
- OG #Pinebook upgrade kit back on horizon
- #PineTime with @JF firmware upcoming
- Say hello to #Pinecil
- MUCH MORE

Thanks to the work of Samuel Holland, crust advanced power management is now capable of running the #PinePhone for 100hrs in idle without the modem (approximately 110mW). With modem on, we should get 40% battery run-time increase (to approx 24 hrs).
Coming to your distro of choice soon!

Belgium: It’s summer, but the weather is not that great at the moment…

So, I’m learning .

As an exercise, I’ve rewritten my simple jukebox (that was written in Java Spring Boot) to Go.

Why do the cookie popups start with "We value your privacy", clearly they don't because they would've just not included the crap.

Did I tell you that I did an unboxing (sort of) of the Pinebook Pro a couple of weeks back? I have it on my peertube instance if you want to check it out :)

Booting from real mode all the way to long mode on a modern x86_64 processor is such a depressing exercise in bloat and legacy bullshit

Happy 2nd Birthday to Linux.pizza! and thank you to @selea for all you provide! :linuxpizza1: :blobrainbow: :ablobdj:

Composing toots in vim is really neat!
The TUI Mastodon Client "Tut" is written by @rasmus@mastodon.acc.umu.se , and if you want to try it out - you can download it here:

github.com/RasmusLindroth/tut

@joacim If you like to use the terminal I'll have to do some self-promotion and say that you should look at tut. It's not finished yet, but usable. An other option is to look at toot. They differ a bit, but not that much.

Just spotted right now that there is a GNU inside the pizza box 😅
