Probably some kind of uptime record for this old clunker. Finally needed to power it down.

Hi Fediverse

it seems to me that switching.social closed down it's services. All social media accounts are deleted and the site is currently offline.

Unfortunately, I have no clue what happened, I'm as surprised as you are. I already contacted the French, Italian and Turkish version of the site.

In case someone knows anything about what happened or has backups of one/multiple pages of the website, I would be very happy to get in touch with you.

@M0YNG Doubtful, but I did try pinging and ff02::1 to try and find the thing. I also plugged the WAN port to my main network to see if it would try to pull a lease. It never did.

Linux users are wizards: they do more work for the same functions, but in exchange they get more flexibility and power.

Windows users are sorcerer: they get innate support and intuitive functions, but not nearly as many tricks as the wizards.

Mac users are warlocks: they bonded their souls to a malevolent power that doesn't actually care about them.

Tried to put the latest OpenWRT on a WRT54GS I have here. It accepted the .bin and then fell off the network. I've done the TFTP flash method to make sure it has a good image. The blinkenlight pattern seems to indicate the OS has started properly, and the reset button (handled by OS if memory serves) works, but it just will not show up on the network anymore.

Folk may think it's a movement, and that's what it is,

the federated anti-fascist movement, and all you gotta do to join is block a bigot the next time you see a new one mentioned on your timeline.


Y'know if 1 person just 1 person blocks bigots, folk might think she's really sick and they won't like er.

An if 2 do it, folk might think they're both weirdos and they won't like either of 'em.

An if 3 do it; can you imagine 3 of us sittin down blocking bigots and carryin on? Folk might think its an organization.

An can you imagine 50 people a day? I say 50 people a day sittin down blockin bigots and carryin on?

In a couple days the world is going to be full of people taking about the first day of Autumn. Please do me a favor and correct this widespread relabeling of our seasons.

You know that thing you do where you hold yourself to standards which you would never dream of holding other people to?

ai-radio.org/ goes offline for a few days the same time every year. It'd sure be nice if they'd monitor their domain renewal emails.
