I tried Linux on my ASUS Zenbook S again last night. Same issue, HDMI over USB-C stops working after being unplugged once. Then the port dies, even after reboot. Couldn't find a solution, no useful info in dmesg. So I'm stuck with Windows (Loudly crying face emoji)

I am very seriously considering getting a Fairphone as my next phone. I am sick of seeing *all* phones have glued-on back panels where you can't replace the battery easily. Want to vote with my wallet.
Went to a talk tonight about decoding satellite images using SDR, at our local radio club. You just need a special antenna, a USB RTL-SDR dongle, and some free software, and you can see satellite photos! (possibly).
