Phone purchase question
I might be buying a phone in the next period and thinking of getting a xiaomi redmi note 9 or 9s but still being slightly scared by the amount of data scraped by xiaomi from users, So I've been wondering if you know a nice android phone for somewhat similar specs at same price (sub $200) -highly dobut anything like that exist tbh- or if just installing a custom ROM (lineage OS) would block that data scraping or not, and how easy installing a custom ROM is, since I've never done it.
nope not arabic is a collection of botched arabic rendering in the wild. it exposes the deeply held assumption that "text" on a computer really means "latin characters" and everything else is an afterthought...
i started on tumblr in 2014, moved to jekyll/github pages last year, and just moved to my own static site generator and netlify today. people have been sending me stuff for years -- it never stops! so much butchered arabic!!
updated an old project today to make it easier to update and load a bit faster: https://notarabic.com/
