"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: github.com/pjf/rickastley

Eat Rickroll, spammers!

I have a cross-band repeater now, using an RTL-SDR as the receiver.

The Internet is, in fact, a series of tubes. We call them "tunnels".

Got a job ping for a senior/staff devops person for a shop in Montreal, but 100% remote. $170K (US) base. DM if you’d like me to connect you to the recruiter.

Also, think it should become a best practice in PhD thesis to thank the (FOSS) communities that provided the infrastructure for writing & analysis:

Ahh, feels good to clean up accounts. Just deactivated my account on two dead Slack workspaces.

Happy #CIDRDay, folks!

RFC 1519 was published on this day in 1993, eliminating classful networking.

That was 27 years ago. If anyone mentions Class C addressing, you are permitted to smack them in the face with a fish.

How many people remember that #StreetComplete is a thing? If you're #geocaching or playing #Pokemon Go, you might consider adding StreetComplete to the mix to help improve #OpenStreetMap while you're at it!

The Senate Judiciary Committee must have two minority members present to have a quorum.

If these senators got on a plane and went home, they'd have leverage to stop the Supreme Court appointee.
