The only thing I bought today was food. (I did take a look at some of the deals but there's nothing I really need.)

Minusta "älä osta mitään -päivä" meni hyvin.

The original #Jolla smartphone from 2013 received an incredible number of 34 software updates during a lifetime of 7 years. The latest #SailfishOS update 3.4.0 will remain the last officially supported software release.

Days are getting shorter. This was in the middle of my work day. Another virtual conference this week. Instead of being stuck inside a conference centre for 4 long days, I get to see the sunset from my window everyday. I guess that's something to be thankful for :)

Sometimes I think a sticker is probably the most durable product from IKEA. I burn this almost a hundred times in hot blue fire.
