In so much (cyberpunk?) media from the 70s, 80s, and 90s, the hero is a journalist.
Journalism, was seen as the ultimate tool against despots.
(Think Max Headroom: 20 Minutes into the Future, or Transmetropolitan, Makers (and many of the rest of Doctorow's books) or even Futureworld.)
And VCs + Facebook have effectively crippled modern journalism. Destroyed most local journalism. Rendered the pursuit of truth an optional side project for the left, and incompatible with the right.
It appears that an N36L hp microserver might not be enough server for running Plex media server, which has sent me down a "new server" rabbit hole.
It appears that what I would like (micro itx, AM4 socket for a Ryzen CPU, and an esata port for using my existing external box o'hdds) is not what anyone else would like, based on available motherboards...
Livestream of the CGPM open session to consider the revision of the SI and the redefinition of the kilogram is now starting:
Further adventures in overcomplicating my home network: Moving the wifi to a separate vlan/subnet cut me off from my Sonos.
I have a choice of figuring out what to relay between subnets, or just chucking the sonos switchport into the wifi vlan.
I'll give you one guess which option I took, although I suspect you don't need me to confirm ;-)
I've been doing so well at avoiding throwing my money at humble bundle, but now they have released a #dystopian bundle, and my reaction is basically "insta-click".
SteamLibrary++ I guess...
Applied the next step of my "stupidly over-complicated home network" and moved my wifi to it's own VLAN. I'm still online*. It's almost like I know what I'm doing, or something ;-)
*technically "back online after remembering to remove strange default routes, and also add _some_ firewall rules to the new interface in pfsense", but that's close enough...
Insomnia has been kicking my butt this week, to the point where I'm trying no caffeine today in the hope of sleep later.
Tiredness and lack of stimulant means I've just fat-fingered my way into an interview question, and have created a file in my home directory called ~?
I'll leave that until Monday before attempting to delete it ;-) #sysadmin
Are there are cross-platform* screenshot tools which will prompt for a filename, then upload to your own destination?
Taking screenshots, renaming them, and manually uploading them to my web server is becoming a chore.
*(at a minimum, I'm hoping for macos and windows, bonus platforms are android, linux, ios in that order or preference)
1: acquire pager ✔️
2: buy yellow spray paint
4: Hack the planet!
