I added three no-case models to my cart and it added keycaps and switches as separate items. Will they come assembled or are these DIY kits?

@khm these come assembled, it's just that in the shop it is structured as kit products

Sometimes the RP2040-PICOs 26 GPIOs are just not enough so we had to make RP2040-PICO30 where all 30 GPIOs are available, we also changed the USB connector to USB-C and the DCDC to SY8089A so your design have now 3.3V / up to 3A #raspberrypi #rp2040

Come diceva Brian di nazareth:


Ho sognato che la rivoluzione era quasi riuscita (e fin lì era un gran bel sogno).

Ma poi la gente ha iniziato a chiedermi cosa doveva fare, e io a rispondere che non ero un Commissario del Popolo, che la mia opinione valeva quanto la loro e che avrebbero dovuto imparare a arrangiarsi con la loro testa.

How to program an attiny85 from arduino ide, in linux.

Having looked at many instruction on the internet, those are the more complete (and working) I have found:


1) open Arduino Ide from your preferred linux distro (mine is debian/testing)
2) File -> Preferences -> Additional Board Manager Url
3) add this link
4) ok
5) Tools -> Board Manager, add Digistump AVR Boards
6) Tools -> Board -> Digistump AVR Boards -> Digistump

Now it's all classic "Verify" "Upload" steps to program the attiny85
... next step: use a localy compiled micronucleus

With the update of @dino to 0.3.1 in #debian, the functionality on small screens such as #pinephone running #mobian ... did not work so great.

The version uploaded to debian experimental, allowed resizing the different parts of the window a little bit, but still often hid useful information...

So I refreshed the libhandy patches!

Packages available from:

The "UNRELEASED" repository is signed by my key in the debian-keyring.

Have not tested much, but works for me!

Pushed a couple branches to:

The handy-v0.3.1 branch is based on the upstream v0.3.1 tag with the handy patches applied

There is also the debian/handy-0.3.x branch, based on of the debian/0.3.1 tag with the handy patches applied.

The patches are only slightly modified from the feature-handy branch in dino upstream, and not all are applied.

Really need to get small screen support working upstream sooner or later, as I do not like maintaining forks!
Tom mastodon (AP)
Thanks for that! The encrypted calls of Dino 0.3 + libhandy is a great win for #linuxmobile. looks promising for upstream support.

The vibes on Mastodon are class and mostly very wholesome, so I'm going to share this piece I wrote a few years back about the Oblivion mod Terry Pratchett worked on. It eventually became so important to him that the developers added in a function to help him continue playing even when his Alzheimer's made it difficult to do so. Theirs is a lovely, heartfelt, uplifting story - sure give it a read if you have a sec

Open Firmware for Pinephone LTE Modem – What’s up with that?

In their monthly announcement, among all the cool things Pine64, they talked about the open firmware for PinePhone’s LTE modem. The firmware isn’t fully open – a few parts remain closed. And Pine emphasizes that they neither pre-install nor officially endorse this firmware, and PinePhones will keep shipping with the vendor-supplied modem firmware image instead.

That said, the new firmware way more featureful – it has fewer bugs, more features, decreased power consumption, and its proprietary parts are few and far between. I’d like to note that, with a special build of this firmware, the PinePhone’s modem can run Doom – because, well, of course.

Just got another email from a blind user of SourceHut thanking me for caring about accessibility in my work. And honestly, it wasn't difficult. I don't understand why my peers in web development seemingly couldn't give a rat's ass about accessibility. Maybe because at their level of complexity, to them "accessibility" means "a shitload of aira tags and a ton of work", whereas at my level of complexity it means "just keep it simple and don't do anything particularly stupid"
