I am slowly moving to LineageOS on my personal phone. The most important features I use on that phone are Email, Messaging, Mapping, and Alerts. I have found decent alternatives for Email, Messaging, and Mapping. Alerts or Notifications are something I depend on a lot; currently, they are Google or Apple features. I could settle down for pulls (I get a few alerts by way of RSS feeds), but push would be great. Especially for alerts from my home or servers. Hence was looking for it. NTFY suited my needs from all angles. Therefore I took some time to deploy it.
I use my tpx as a travel machine; at home, it’s mainly used remotely. As in, I connect to it either through ssh or through a remote desktop and work on it. I wanted RDP and not VNC, mostly because I want to have a session on the remote desktop with the same profile etc. And also allow others to log in using their profile. Somewhat akin to SSH logins.
I love writing these weekly updates. I know it’s only been two weeks. But I love the process of creating a new post as soon as I publish this week’s post. Then I update it with points as and when I feel like it throughout the week. On Friday, I click publish. These weekly posts are stealing from Twitter which is a good thing in general :)
consistent. Email template insertion is one of them. It can be done easily using phrases in AutoKey. But phrases support only simple text. But I do like HTML emails sometimes. So this is my hack.
NMG+GSUS – 2022 – Results are out. I am happy about the outcome even though we are very late this year. This year was our fifth edition year. I have many things to write about. I will, once I get time to gather my thoughts. Added my initial notes about Unified User Status and Availability....
It was an exciting week. Many things got done, and it was a reasonably successful week.
