There is just one thing where @threemaapp sucks compared to and that is sharing video. It is 2021 and for some reason we cannot send videos >50MB without turning their quality to crap. What's the point of 4K on a smartphone if you cannot even share 1080p? This is especially ridiculous since the messages only stay on the servers for a few minutes to hours at most. 🙄

My phone's USB port seems to be malfunctioning. The OS claims that there is water in the port even though it hasn't been anywhere near water and the notification is already there for several days.
I tried every software trick except for factory resetting it. I am not really in the mood for setting up the whole device again.
Did anyone have a similar issue?

Thanks @lefarfadet , @q and @tursiops for the explanantion 👍
So I guess there is no downside to doing it 🤔

Any tiling window manager fans here? I have been using i3 for a couple of months, but would like to dive into a dynamic tiler such as Qtile or xmonad. Any recommendations?
