I just realised my intro went when my instance crashed all those months ago.

Anyhow, hello (again) I am developer and a programmer including and I write stuff in and

Besides my interests include bike riding, or and reading, mostly There is also a starting interest in

My day job is a senior working on some very large and strange computer networks.

We're back!

In case you are wondering why we'd disable #HyperThreading on a server, check out the #OpenBSD commit message mail-archive.com/source-change

Or the article by El Reg: theregister.co.uk/2018/06/20/o

I'm Speculating(tm), but expect further news about problems in those areas...

I wondered why Chrome wouldn't work on my computer after it runs the first time. It has a strange dependency in that it needed gnome-keyring to start.

considering writing a bot which takes gitea/gitlab/github/whatever webhooks and posting to fediverse, probably using @halcy's mastodon.py

Thought my Mastodon instance was having problems until I checked my internet connection.

This is what Internet looks like in the suburbs in a major Australian city.😒

New article: "Fallout 4 and the Newbie Problem" aurigaplatform.pw/fallout-4-an

In which I go into detail about the various issues I ran into playing my first ever serious game of Fallout and the ways that Fallout 4 is badly designed for new players.

*DING DING DING*

"Oh hi neighbor! Uhm, don't mind me. I'm not crazy, even though I appear to be smashing the sidewalk with this sledgehammer. There's a hard drive platter there! Hence the bell noise! I do computer things where security matters sometimes...!"

*DING DING DING*

"... honestly, this is normal behavior, I promise!!!"

The Lollipop Cloud Is Official! Show more

it's sad that several people inquired if this was real, that shows how fucked up of a world we live in honestly

I don't know the artist. But this is a great cyberpunk pixel animation

@smallsees That last wow was the new mario, now we wait until 2020 for the next game that is worth caring about, while they try to get me to pay for the games I already own again

Hi, I'm a bot answering DNS queries based on @bortzmeyer bot (see bortzmeyer.org/fediverse-bot.h) BUT using a Chinese non-validating DNS resolver based in Changsha (Hunan) & operated by China Unicom

Please note that the censorship you'll see is different from what you might expect from a Chinese internet connection (eg .some domain are not censored, answers may differs).

Logo is a derivative from @Troll's work

I'm operated by @shaft (ping him if I look dead)

See profile for details

Any recommendations for a good dynamic dns server / client?

I need a good option that's been kept up to date for cloudflare, namecheap, others that can be stitched into the lollipop project.

All I really need is a name/link. I can bolt it onto Docker/similar if necessary πŸ˜‰
@kaniini makes a very good point.

"What is 'lollipop project'"

It's an attempt to lower the friction of self hosting. Preferably on Raspberry Pi's, Orange Pi's and other lean, small ARM mini-computer boards.

I've been quietly working for the last 3 months on building a self-hosted cloud that's rarely online (only to get updates really) as well as provide services for myself and others while 'disconnected'. Services like contact/calendar/gpx track sync. GPX tracking. Blog, more.

As I've worked on the project a few very amazing folks have made suggestions about how it could be used to lower the barrier of 'just self host' for a LOT of people floating around the federverse.

After some thinking and quiet time I realized it's time to make this a real project.

The 'Lollipop Cloud' is born of a desire to self host when nomadic, facilitating sync when 'in the jungle' or just wanting to give πŸ–• to the various corporate entities who harvest your data.

A cloud in a very small box is the goal. A box the size of a credit card or as big as a rack mount server. YOU decide.

More will be online/posted soon.

@smallsees

Yeah, the social skills thing is something I've always had...

I have had two seperate offers lately from orgs that know me.

Both were sales engineers.

not sure how I feel about that.

Over the years we've had many high-profile Twitter users join Mastodon, and most haven't stuck around (that I know of). I'm curious if it's the network effect being stronger for them, if it's a culture mismatch re: famousness, or something about Mastodon's features that's lacking for them.

so many fireworks tonight, one just set off a car alarm 😬

~vantablac has updated their #SOTD: Mike Shinoda - Nothing Makes Sense Anymore < youtu.be/xMTsul4UFl8 >

I'll always be amazed that they made the process of copying magnetic media for your nerd friends look cool as hell.
