This week’s update is massive! So many interesting things were announced that’s too difficult to pick highlights! How about you read them all and tell us which ones you would have picked?
A while back, I made a poor life choice. I am providing this information free of charge so that maybe you can avoid the heartache it's brought me.
I bought a fridge a while back. Shopped around, the usual, found one I could live with that lacked any smart features. Nice sort of space gray metal on the outside.
Got delivered and installed one day, by some nice folks. And it turns out, to my shock and horror, that the fridge is not magnetic. No fridge magnets. No little whiteboards. No reminders held up by letter magnets that totally don't spell something obscene. No magnet poetry that absolutely is obscene. And now I'm stuck with this fridge until it dies.
So, don't be like me. When you're shopping for a fridge, take a magnet.
The nightly of Manjaro Plasma for the pinephone just connected to my home LAN with WPA! Hooray!! :-)
I never had a problem with open wifi in the shops or cafes, but with passwd protected networks I've never had any joy. Until Now!
I don't know what's stopping me moving the sim card to it from my very elderly, el cheapo BLU?
After it updates, I'll see about KDE Connect - gotta have that to run things on the computers and my rgb lights etc.
Oh. What a day! :-)
I fixed All The Things!
Introducing the #PinePhonePro - $399

Finland bought its first supercomputer in 1989, a used Cray X-MP. It has 4 vector processors running at a bit over 100 MHz, 128 MiB RAM, and 38.4 GiB storage. It was used for predicting weather and scientific research.
My phone has 8 CPU cores at up to 1.8 GHz, 3 GiB RAM, and 192 GiB storage. It's mostly used for reading books and bother other people.
Ich fange mal an:
Dr. Hayat Sindi
"(arabisch حياة سندي, DMG Ḥayāh Sindī; geboren am * 6. November 1967 in Mekka) ist eine saudi-arabische Pharmakologin und Expertin für Biotechnologie. Sie ist seit 2012 Goodwill-Botschafterin der UNESCO und zählte im gleichen Jahr zu den zehn einflussreichsten Frauen der arabischen Welt."
Heute ist #AdaLovelaceDay!
"Ada Lovelace Day is an annual event celebrated on the second Tuesday of October, which began in 2009. Its goal is to "... raise the profile of women in science, technology, engineering, and maths," and to "create new role models for girls and women" in these fields. " 
So und jetzt nennt mal jede*r hier eine Frau(*) aus dem STEM-Bereich.
(*) gerne auch Menschen, die nicht cis-männlich sind, aber dann das bitte kennzeichnen.
#postmarketOS SP3 is out with a new #Sxmo release, #OnePlus6/6T improvements (close-to-mainline, of course 😉) and more. The picture shows latest tweaks app with postmarketos-theme. Thanks to everybody who made this possible! 🙏
There is another thing I use in KDE to resize windows that is not obvious at all, but it's been there forever.
You know those 3 buttons in the title bar? The right one X's out (closes) the window when you left click on it. The left button minimizes the window to the task bar and the middle one toggles between full screen and previous size.
If you hover that middle title bar button and then Right click your mouse, it will maximize horizontally. If you Middle click it then you maximize Vertically.
