@PetraOleum I just discovered your chess Mastodon bot! Out of curiosity, which chess engine is it running?

I don't have a measuring stick, but let's use weight, since I have a scale.

The PinePhone is aprox 192 grams.

The LibreM is aprox 260 grams.

I have three phones here... One Pixel (front), then side by side is the PinePhone and the LibreM.

The Pinephone is a bit thicker than the Pixel, probably due to the battery being removable, and the LibreM is still very large compared to it.

My LibreM just arrived.

Long story short, this thing is so thick and heavy as to not be usable as a phone, period.

I hate to say it, but this thing is a joke- a very expensive joke.

I read about all the problems Purism had, and what a disaster it was internally, but the finished product is even less of a viable product than the Neo Freerunner.

The PinePhone is too slow to use, but at least it has the appearance of a normal phone.

Time for new #introductions!

I'm Jordi, a newly-minted #Canadian from Mexico, living in #Montreal. I've had a super-sheltered and comfortable life. Nothing dreadful has ever happened to me.

I like #mathematics, #knitting, #skating, #swimming, and old #gameing because I'm old (not that old).

I also do software stuff because of course.

Day job is work on #GreenhouseGas assessments and #environmental #mapping, but my nocturnal alter-ego is writing a book in 2021, streaming on Twitch!

For the past hour I have been alternately training GPT2 models and picking up human feces with my hands; it's that kind of day

I miss Compiz some days, there was something satisfying about closing all the windows at the end of the day and seeing them all burst into flames

Was thinking about modern patrons of the arts and someone showed me this.

Academic question, boosts very welcome 

Who on here posted a wonderful, super clear summary of phenomenology? I read it yesterday or at least recently.

Asking for a friend and cursing myself for not faving and bookmarking well enough.
