Examine your sources of information. If you find anything with "it's obvious, everybody knows this", you have hit a rich vein of unchecked assumptions. If you take your time to actually confirm them, you are likely to find some that are not quite true, and also some that are true but never before occured to you. Both give you a tremendous advantage.

The general consensus seems to be:

1) 20th Century Fox owns the "Alien" franchise.
2) "Alien" xenomorphs are born from a Queen.
3) Disney is buying 20th Century Fox.
Therefore
4) Xenomorphs are Disney princesses.

Every time you fix something, it becomes a little bit better, a little bit more unique, a little bit more yours, and a little bit more valuable (to you). Whenever something breaks, there is an opportunity to improve it and put some character into it. Don't replace it with a new, generic, lifeless object.

Got a basic platformer working. Walking, jumping, climbing ladders, shooting, moving monsters, collecting items, dying. No scrolling, because this display doesn't allow that in hardware, and doing it in software is sloooow.

@Purism Just a thought - would it be possible for Librem 5 to have kill switch for USB data lines? As to not allow data transfer when charging using untrusted cables/chargers (like SyncStop, for example).
