   Greetings libreplanet-discuss, I wrote a step-by-step instruction
   manual for installing Parabola to the reMarkable tablet using only-free
   software. The result is a 10.3" epaper---and I think this is the proper
   word---notebook that runs a full X graphical environment, with fast
   partial screen refresh. It works with USB OTG, and has a built-in EMR
   (Wacom) and capacitive touch digitizers.

   also put up a project page.
   [2] I hope this inspires some
   conversation about running Emacs in the sun. :) My own, biased, opinion
   is that it's lovely in '-nw' mode with an external keyboard. Enjoy,

   I'm delighted to see that people keep porting Parabola ARM to more
   it makes every minute we spent on its development worth it.
   If I were to buy an ebook reader, this might be the one. There weren't
   options compatible with free software before this, right? Not that I'm
   for one, but I remember the FSF's holiday-season ethical giving guide
   for an option to cover this area. Hopefully that might change for 2020.
   On a side note, I also find it amusing that the same phenomenon
   (electrophoresis) is used both in biochemistry/molecular biology for
   stuff, say a DNA test, and for making ebook displays.
