    I'm quite proud of that: I literally just came up with it.
    The fact that I'm proud says it all, arguably.

    speaking of pirate-themed bands, Alestorm is a pretty fun act if you're also into that sort of thing

    @lkatalin
    @frozencemetery Is that already a real band? We should all form a rival band if so...
    Robbie Harwood
    @frozencemetery
    lkatalin: it is absolutely a band :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRKAL-i-UbE they play a heavy metal / sea shanty fusion that unabashedly uses a keytar

    @lkatalin
    Wow that sounds awesome, this is going to give Keytar Bear a run for his money

    ah ha ha, indeed it does :)

    it's a pretty niche pun, to be honest

    Not strictly Enarx-related, but I'm sure people here have thoughts: https://www.cnbc.com/2020/01/30/ibm-ceo-ginni-rometty-steps-down-arvind-krishna-to-take-over.html

    this is a bit terrifying: https://github.com/hakluke/how-to-exit-vim

    @axelsimon Oh no: :!sudo dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/kmem
    The "spiritual way" is also pretty good

    @mbestavros Nice! I really admire their perseverance. They even have schematics https://puri.sm/posts/a-different-kind-of-transparency/
    The battery seems like it's a problem, but if you accept that it is basically a glorified landline then it's fine : P

    Interestingly, it says the only real difference between this and the much-cheaper PinePhone is the fact this has isolated its closed-source components
    Lily Sturmann

    I missed that part. Though I was wondering...

    What's a land line?

    that and physical kill switches for the different components like GPS, microphone, GSM etc., no?

    What's a land line?

    apparently, it's something made of aluminium in the cul-the-sac i live in :(

    Yes, that too

    @lkatalin
    :100: :tada: :balloon: physical kill switches
    I believe a "land line" is what you see on a map to delineate countries.

    ha, just saw @lkatalin latest pun. Of courseā€¦ nice.

    interesting article, even though it seems a bit fuzzy to me, like some of it is a bit wishful thinking (aka citation needed). Also, some if it seems contradictory to me: as you get more tired, concentrating becomes harder, which frees creativity (hmm, ok), but also, you get bet better at concentrating on a single thing.

    Agreed. I mainly added it to poke fun at @npmccallum, tbh.

    Suspected as much :)
