Some random car company keeps trying to refactor Android's AudioPolicyManager code and every time they submit any code it breaks in-call audio on a bunch of old devices. Can Google maybe just do a tiny bit of testing before blindly merging refactors...

Google removed the requirement for OEMs to ship with the generic kernel on version 5.10+

VoLTE (IMS) is a well-defined standard, and is implemented by most modern smartphone SoCs. Yet carriers somehow just insist on making weird restrictions on what is considered "compatible", despite the clear fact that there should be no difference and everything should just work fine with the correct configuration.

Tried to make bacon & eggs with my air fryer and failed horribly. Now my entire room smells like bacon, and even me smells like bacon.

Maybe I should really consider using some sort of VoIP service

...and I am sick of those "your device is not made for the Canadian market so it doesn't have the 'carrier configurations'" bullshit. No, those "carrier configurations" are pretty much always pre-loaded in most sensible global phones. The only issue is whether the carrier allows VoLTE registration from said devices.

Do all large Canadian carriers block VoLTE for unlocked phones?

Still can't unhear that the first 4 chords of "A Cruel Angel's Thesis" are the same as those in "Leck mich im Arsch"

Shelter's git repository is now hosted on my Gitea instance, running on the fantastic JuiceFS

They are finally back in stock and available for delivery in Canada

I love how /e/ claims to be the only Google-free Android fork and then do literally nothing more than rebranding LineageOS with a cringe launcher

This study just feels like an ad paid for by /e/. How is LineageOS not Google-less but /e/ somehow is? This is just ridiculous. Of course you could install GAPPS on LineageOS, but so could you on literally every Android fork.

Daily reminder that you should not use whatever /e/ is and instead you should support upstream Google-less Android forks like LineageOS.

Me: I need to buy this RPi Gameboy case I want to play retro games
Also me: finished building it and played like twice

I have a feeling that the entire premise of live-patching is self-contradictory. If you are running software at a scale where several minutes of downtime would be unacceptable, then you should be asking why restarting one process on one server would bring down your entire service, instead of looking into how to live patch your software.
