"The device, stationary, with all apps closed, transferred data to Google about 16 times an hour, or about 389 times in 24 hours.

32 bits (still) matters!
I used OPNsense on my pcengines Alix 2d13 firewall.
The Alix 2d13 is a nice motherboard with a Geode CPU 32 bits x86 CPU.
I migrated to OPNsense after pfSense dropped support for 32 bits. Unfortunately, OPNsense also dropped support for 32 bits CPUs in the 19.1.7 release. I decided to install FreeBSD on my Alix to use it as my firewall.

Use a raspberry-pi 2 as a firewall with FreeBSD
I was using OPNsense on my pcengines alix firewall and was quite happy with it.
Unfortunately, OPNsense also dropped support for 32 bits CPU’s in the 19.1.7 release. I decided to install FreeBSD on the alix to use it as my firewall.

Got some speedups in the megapixels app for the #pinephone
This is with the rear camera running at 1080p, it can also do 5MP but that halves the framerate.

The eleventh release of tut is out
The only new feature is that you can use relative date, everything else is just bug fixes. You can read more at the release page.
A great thank you for all the kind words and help I've gotten with detecting bugs and spelling mistakes. Hopefully I'll get more time to develop new features in the near future :)
