The state of the Pinephone from @PINE64

Not... great. Horrible power usage, then they did CRUST, which turns off the CPU on standby (no Wifi, no apps, no music). Better standby life, but only phone call, SMS (no MMS), and button click.

But modem crashes on CRUST resume, so when it comes back, also no mobile data. This has been the state for months now; not clear, but might just be a fatal flaw.

Another new #UbuntuTouch Phone: "Fxtec’s Pro1-X is an Ubuntu Phone"


Oh man! Douglas Murray, almost 5 hours long, and Eric is coming out swinging in the opening seconds. This is going to be good.


The mention of Professor Ted and LSD brought to mind a book review concerning Timothy Leary. I had basically picked up the societal message that drugs were just a super-booze for hippies. I've never hunted down the book, but the review (from a famous writer himself) gives a very different perspective.

Here's how 60 Minutes deceptively edited the Trump interview.

A side-by-side comparison.

As #COVID19 deaths rapidly rise throughout Western Europe, #Sweden's daily deaths are moving in the opposite direction. The success of Sweden's no-lockdown strategy is stunning & on full display. Why does the press ignore Sweden? Hmmm. #Coulter #Europe

Quitting #facebook was rough, and I'm still feeling all the viewers missing from my Tues #livestream, but I'm getting almost weekly reminders at this point why it was a sacrifice I had to make.

Uhhh...guys. I just found the Wow Machine Radio of TV streams...EXP-TV you never know what you will SEE next.

It is like watching TV from the late 80's at the exact moment when MTV's 120 Minutes was playing music that was actually new, USA's Up All Night was still good, and Night Flight was unique.

It is like that time you took LSD at the rich kids' house and you got to play with the satellite dish all night long.
