  1. @MichaelTunnell Thanks again, Michael. Really enjoyed this! I have to say I’ve not found myself as enthused about any firm in recent times as I am about Pine64. I think they’re doing sterling work and I sincerely hope they continue succeeding, especially in light of their direct, honest and open approach. It’s been an age since I tutored the basics of hardware design to undergraduates though the news of the PinePhone schematics being open, and AMD’s massively multi-core new processor does whet my appetite to consult some of the newer editions of texts by the likes of Hennessy and Patterson to see what advances are reported in parallel computer architectures, for example. I’m not a gamer myself, but I do I agree with your regarding Valve and Steam. From the number of times Google have “closed shop” as it were on services I don’t think I’d find their offering enticing at all if I were a gamer… Good to read Ubuntu officially supporting the Pi4, though I have to say I’d really like official support from vanilla Debian, which is my favourite OS :slight_smile:

  2. LOL that’s great . . . I randomly helped people discover a word I didn’t know existed :smiley:

  3. What about the trusty Shamwow?
