We would like to invite everyone to test the new Tor-SASL gateway on our testnet! For further details see

I'm just a grumpy Finn with personal space issues and don't want to impose on anyone. But before the referendum I did wonder a few times should I offer hugging everyone present to show how an EU citizen loves them and doesn't want them to vote leave. I regret not doing that now.

kuulkaas mussukat. Aika moni neuletuttava on aloittanut viimeaikoina Youtube-vlogin pitämisen neuleistaan ja muusta villaan ja kuituihin liittyvästä aiheesta. Voisko joku (ihan kuka vaan!) aloittaa suomenkielisen videosarjan RUOASTA? Näitä on muualla maailmassa paljonkin, on kissoja (, koiria (, julkkiskokkeja (, Youtube-kokkeja ( mutta MISSÄ ON SUOMALAISET?!?!?! (Tämän viestin innoitti miehen halu oppia kieltä katselemalla suomenkielisiä ruokapätkiä, joita EI OLE OLEMASSA)

"Lockheimerin perustelu kuitenkin ontuu hieman, sillä pikalataus ei vaadi toimiakseen Type-C-liitäntää, Nexus-mallien pikalaturi ei ole lajissaan erityisen nopea (15 W) ja markkinoilta löytyy ohuempiakin puhelimia, jotka tukevat silti langatonta latausta. Lisäksi langaton lataus ei aiemmissakaan Nexus-malleissa lyhentänyt latausaikaa johdolla lataukseen nähden, vaan toimi vain käyttöä helpottavana ominaisuutena, jota se olisi voinut tehdä uusissakin malleissa."

I'm a bit disappointed about the +Nexus​​ team's answer about Qi charging on their Reddit AMA:

Why no wireless (Qi) charging: “We added Qi wireless charging starting with N4 because plugging in USB micro B was such a hassle! (Which way is up!?) With this year’s Nexii, we support USB Type-C which has a reversible connector so there’s no more guessing. AND it charges incredibly swiftly: 1% to 100% in 97 mins on the 6P for example (the first ~45 mins of charging is especially fast). Meanwhile, wireless charging adds z (thickness). So, ease of plugging in + fast charging + optimizing for thinness made us double down on Type-C instead of wireless!”

I'm a bit disappointed that the convenience must not have been seen:

1. I don't care how long it takes, I'd be asleep as long as the phone makes it through the day on its battery.

2. Cafes, bars, etc wouldn't have to provide wires or sockets and everyone carry around cables.

3. Plugging in with USB in public locations can be a security risk.

4. Plugging/unplugging every few minutes I'd annoying... Home, car, office desk, etc.

5. The USB socket had always been the first/only thing to go wrong with any of my phones. Wireless charging reduces that wear.
