Whoop’s new fitness tracker is better thanks to a battery breakthrough - Sila Nanotechnologies’ silicon anode has finally arrived
@jaquesviljoen yes, field operation is really amazing.
Generally, on whole 20m band, in SSB, I hear about 3 to 5 operators, and easily up to 20 from a summit !
Libreboot laptop prices reduced on http://RetroFreedom.com - E.g. X200 was £298, now £228.
I have a large stock surplus, and things are returning to pre-pandemic normal in the UK. It is viable for me to operate at reduced prices, like in 2017/2018.
Also: I'm on course to getting a new Libreboot release out, ETA early to mid October. My purpose is to polish the current 20210522 release (released on 22 May 2021).
I plan another release in November/December. Coreboot 4.15 comes out in ~November.
