Hi, I’m hime, you can shout at me on twitter, or send me an e-mail to
drbawb+blog [at] [this-domain]. You can also see what I’m up to on github or sourcehut. You can find my general-purpose public encryption key at sourcehut as well.
We have a public mumble server which you can check out at
metallia.fatalsyntax.com port 64738. Mubmle is an open-source VOIP client which you can download from mumble.info. We are a small community that is currently playing games such as: “the critically acclaimed MMO, Final Fantasy XIV, which now has a free-trial that includes up to the first expansion: Heavensward.”, Stardew Valley, Hades, The Division 2, Overwatch, Diablo III, and many more.
Today I woke up and was immediately subjected to the following video:
This is your one spoiler warning: I will be discussing this video below this imaginary line.
Now I didn’t find this particularly funny, although it certainly has its moments, but I do patently disagree with the notion of this being “zoomer humor.” You see I recall being similarly inane as a child, as were my friends. This style of humor doesn’t “belong” to any one generation, it’s just the result of immaturity....
Following the cable misadventures I was in need of the ability to route at gigabit speeds on my home network. I had a venerable PCEngine APU2 that was able to do about 550-650 Mbit/s firewalled, but that’s just not enough. Exacerbating the issue is the fact that currently my main workstation has VMs that straddle multiple subnets, so bulk file-transfer traffic that should be switched (L2) is instead moving through the router (L3)....
The rich and powerful route packets however they want. We steal them back for you.
I was contacted by a friend who was struggling with internet drop-outs at one of their business sites. Their router no longer had a functional WAN backup, mostly because Sprint ceased to exist, so internet outages led to an inability to take payments.
Z was getting nowhere with support for this firewall appliance; however he was particularly confused by the guy saying there were “multiple ARP entries” on the WAN interface....
In May I decided to address some internet connectivity problems. For a bit of context: I play a lot of Final Fantasy 14 which uses TCP for its netcode. This basically means lost packets quickly turn the game into an unplayable mess. (Things like the client being completely unresponsive for 10s of seconds, and then quickly fast-forwarding to “catch-up” to the current state of the world.) Due to these quirks in my primary entertainment: I started to dive into some packet loss between my router and its default gateway....
