Litany against NAT

apologies to Frank Herbert

I must not NAT.
NAT is the net-killer.
NAT is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my NAT addiction.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the NAT has gone there will be a proper firewall.
Only IPv6 will remain.

I'm starting to see bot attacks over #IPv6 on my #wordpress site. #sysadmin Not sure if this is good news for IPv6 or not... :flan_think:​

NetworkManager gives IPv4 DNS resolvers priority over by default. I think I've finally found a workaround.

Add the following to /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf


Restart NetworkManager and DNS should be in the proper order.

As with all changing of the defaults, there may be unintended side-effects. We shall see.


Does anyone happen to have a factory firmware image for a WRT54GS? I still can't revive this thing after a failed OpenWRT upgrade.

Hey. We all know medical debt is a big problem in the USA.

Wanna do something about it?

Here's a charity that buys medical debt and forgives it in a way that keeps the people who owe that debt from owing taxes on having that debt forgiven.

Tell your friends. Tell your family. Tell people on the bus or train. Donate in your most racist and entitled relative's name and tell them you did it. :blobyeengrin:

β€œThis is why I say some of this stuff is entirely too complicated. We've brought this upon ourselves: building breathtakingly high stacks of ridiculous systems where few (if any) people can keep the whole thing in their head.”

Let’s start a hot new trend where people are nice on the internet

Farmer presenting on pastured livestock at conference today said an interesting and troubling thing about installing solar panels for extra income: don’t put any in view of the road. Apparently if they are visible people will come at night and steal them.

new rule: no more gritty reboots unless they actually feature gritty playing the main role
