"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, β€˜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:

Eat Rickroll, spammers!

Please do not post un-CWed politics toots.

Please do not boost un-CWed politics toots.

Thank you.

No table? Not able. The lack of space is notable.

I've had a conversation on the reflectors from my phone, but I'm wondering if anyone out here has managed to pass this kind of traffic over the air yet.

Not sure what's going on with this sea shanty thing, but here's my contribution:

from "Bad Water", seaQuest season 1 (it's a good thing they never made any more πŸ˜‰)

Laughter is not the best medicine.

But some days it's the only medicine you can get, or offer.

It can help. It really can.

oh nice! I had emailed the author about something else, and he replied saying he heard me and another ham talking on one of the reflectors about the crashiness, is aware of it, and should have a fix RSN.

Yesterday a friend told me about DroidStar, an app for directly accessing the reflectors of the various digital voice modes. It's slightly crashy in M17, but otherwise it's pretty slick.

The chickens charged forward with torches and pitchforks.
The wolf called for unity... as he picked a feather from his teeth.

I spent my childhood rolling down hills in old tyres.

They were really good years.
