I actually missed the article being published in the ft:pedia, but now it's also on my blog with a more explanation about what fischertechnik is doing in the smart home space:

Calling all smartphone owners (no matter the brand) – we’d like to hear from you! What motivates you to keep your phone longer, or to replace it with a new one?📱 Share your thoughts on smartphone longevity in this 5-minute survey👇 :

@e_mydata I'm seeing eOS 0.11 (from the 28th of August) as update to my Fairphone 3 on 0.10. I assume that update is Android 10. However the update fails to apply.

The vikunja Todoist migration ran through and worked almost perfectly. I had to manually clean up some task parent-child relationships and transfer over my repeat rules. But apart from that I'm very happy with vikunja. Big thanks to the maintainer, who was very responsive in the matrix room of the project.

Things that are missing now is some automation and starting to move git things to gitea.

This weekend:
- I moved Synapse over to my NAS and started using Element web via Nextcloud app
- I set up auto-invite-matrix-bot for accounts I have on other matrix homeservers
- I switched to Wallabag from Pocket
- I configured dnscrypt-proxy so everything gets to use better DNS from inside my network
- I started configuring Vikunja to take over from Todoist and my shopping list, however the Todoist migration is currently broken with my Todoist data, so it's on hold for a bit.

@AsteroidOS I just noticed that the hour hand on the first analog watchface (the one with date and time under it) doesn't move between the hour ticks. Is this something I can toggle simewhere, is it watchface specific or not yet available (as in, I should file an issue on Github)

I think is probably the silliest browser extension I've ever built. It's also the lowest maintenance.

Finally have @AsteroidOS working reliably on my G Watch R. Just took a new battery and a bit if luck in the flashing lottery.

@funkwhale also, coukd I propose a "listened" indicator on podcast episodes based in listening history, so I don't have to remember that myself?

Funkwhale brings music and audio to the Fediverse:


It lets you discover, store and share music or other audio.

The official website has more:

Funkwhale is a federated, decentralised platform running on open software, and uses ActivityPub so it is also compatible with Mastodon and other Fediverse networks.

@funkwhale I've been transferring my playlists over to funkwhale and found it a bit annoying that I can't directly add entire albums to playlists. I'm aware of the add to queue and then transfer to playlist workaround, but that doesn't really work if you want to listen to music while building independent playlists...

Thanks to my @Fairphone having Android 9 I can finally use the DoT resolver from @digiges.

I've had people come and work on issues that had been open for years. Open source is timeless. Of course, you should close issues that are non-actionable or won't fix, but closing things just for the sake of it feels wrong, especially when it's just a misanthropic bot at work.

I'm working on getting rid of the remaining red apps in the productivity folder, but migrating data is time intensive, including finding a suitable open solution and setting it up.

I guess there is some security through obscurity argument they'd make, though especially the smart home apps aren't really security through obscurity - most of those have open-ish APIs for their products. I chose to keep the proprietary apps for their firmware updating capabilities. I was also fully aware of that limitation when I purchased the respective devices.

@efoundation Smart home is very proprietary dominated, as it turns out. Security too. Though it turns out most of the proprietary apps are from the finance or insurance corner (or somehow related to them), where there aren't many free alternatives readily available.
