Watching Carl Sagan's "Cosmos" and it turns out that hell is Venus and heaven is Earth.


I'm wasted at this job.

I am a student at heart. I love to study and learn. If I am not learning, I am bored. It's that simple.

I would really rather spend all my time researching, speculating and experimenting.

3 hardware kill switches for Librem 5 Linux smartphone.

Wireguard now added to the buster branch and part of the base install.
Guifinet integration is pending. Maybe it might also be possible to link up with ham radio network tunnels.

Although a limitation there might be encryption not being permitted.

You know on Windows how you can press Ctrl and it'll spawn some contracting circles to show you where your mouse cursor is; is there a way to do that on Linux?
