Huge thanks again to Plata for a nifty set of Python scripts that speeds up collecting links from feeds by a lot.
Something missing? Want to contribute?
If your project's cool story (or your awesome video or nifty blog post or ...) is missing and you don't want that to happen again, please just put it into the hedgedoc pad for the next one! If you just stumble on a thing, please put it in there too - all help is appreciated!
PS: I'm looking for feedback - what do you think?
Trust me, I've tried, it's not worth it. IIRC Twinntech basically admits to have done cherry-picking when they read the PinePhone product description... You can't help people like that. So, don't fall into the XKCD 386 trap, and do something better with your time!
