"And I realized, when you go through any endeavor, any journey, whether across town or to the moon and back, all that matters is that you share the experience with people that you love. That’s what makes life special, ‘cause ultimately, that’s all there is. That’s really all there is."

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 have my phone set to auto-deny any number that is not in my contact list to combat the ever increasing amount of spam I've been getting. Unfortunately there is one insurance scammer that has taken to leaving voicemails. Multiple VMs a day for the last two weeks.

I contacted my provider about disabling my VM box altogether. They do not support this. You can, however, redirect missed calls to another number instead.

I now send missed calls to: github.com/pjf/rickastley

Eat Rickroll, spammers!

Wow, Google, that's a new low. Force removing the Calculator app on an Android 5.1 device.

(The vendor refuses to unlock it which is why it isn't running Lineage.)

If the report requesting a new upstream is a year old, and the packaged upstream is more than two years old, can we just call the package orphaned?

Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?

The same thing we do every night, Pinky: try to get enough sleep!

IFixIt gives the Framework Laptop a 10/10 in repairability. I watched their tear-down video and it's certainly the most user-friendly laptop to date when it comes to changing just ANY part! youtube.com/watch?v=AV2umY3R0v #linux #laptop #hardware #framework #ifixit

Can we find an alternative to the phrase "going viral" in the middle of a pandemic?

Parade of nations underway. That music sounds awfully familiar. *listens intently* That's Chrono Trigger!

Ah, now I remember why I haven't watched the opening ceremonies in recent years. US TV feels the need to commentate on _everything_. The model works pretty well for actual sporting events, but constantly talking over top of artistic endeavors ruins it.

Imagine if Akamai, CloudFlare, and AWS all went down at the same time.

Kids, you won’t believe this! 

In the old days, phones were over wires and TV was wireless.

Just set up my first not-in-a-lab WireGuard tunnel. This is nice. Still needs some scripting love to come back on boot, but this will probably replace quite a few OpenVPN configs.

I've never seen Stranger Things, and I'm not usually fan of 80's things, but from a graphic design standpoint I think this works:

Reminder that just because you’ve been through worse, that doesn’t mean you have to put up with bad stuff now
