Guess I'll retry those bandcamp downloads tomorrow then...

Diane Cluck has re-released four old tracks to collect money for "friends and fellow community members in the gigging economy, those whose income streams are on pause while we wait out the COVID-19 situation."

I particularly like the second one, "Far Too Witchy"

Woah, sowohl als auch nicht erreichbar? Hab' ich was verpasst?

Most of us are undergoing a lot of stress right now. People under stress can be short-tempered and impatient and can lash out. Try to be patient, empathetic, sympathetic, and avoid causing more stress or irritate or antagonize.

Try to be extra clear in your own communication, and ask others to clarify if they're not unambiguous. Be explicit about your feelings and expectations.

If you make a mistake, apologize.

Forgot about my bread in the oven yesterday, so for the next couple of days, I'm going to eat slightly charred bread 🙄

bandcamp is waiving its revenue share this friday, March 20

if you want to support artists/labels, they will get the full amount of any and all sales on that day

You're in lockdown and can't stand the boredom? Download and read a DRM-free copy of my DNS book, and you'll never complain about isolation again. ;-)

Talking of battlestations... I don't think I've had much of that type of desk setup this century.

(Old low-rez scans of photos from a previous life, 1997-ish? Mostly the same systems, just set up at two different ends of the room at different times.)

Day one of "oops, we need to extend all these IP address pools for VPN clients"...

Hrm. Apparently the nginx reverse proxy configuration created by the quickinstall automation is incomplete and doesn't support TCP streaming...

If you drop nginx, video streams work even for a client that sits behind a http proxy and has no other direct outside connectivity.

Took about half an hour to spin up a Jitsi instance from scratch (they've made it very easy) - but I've now been fighting my own paranoia settings on various devices for an hour or two...

Getting video chat to work takes quite some time after you've previously gone to great lengths to disable access to recording devices in your OS and all web browsers (including switching off WebRTC and associated functions)...

Calling smartphone equipped teenagers 'digital natives' is a mistake because a smartphone makes you a consumer rather than a native of anything.

If you want a child to become a digital native give them an actual computer instead of a corporate controlled and curated consumer device.

Oh wow. That took quite some time to understand: On an old 15.05 device, you can't configure ipv4/ipv6 dualstack on a single interface, since it doesn't have an protocol type for that.

Instead you create a normal "DHCP client" interface in LuCI (WIFI), and then you add an additional interface (WIFI6), select protocol "DHCPv6 client" and tick the "Cover the following interface: WIFI" radio button below.

Can't believe I spent like two hours to distillate that from the convoluted docs.

I want to make use of an old TP-Link TL-WR941ND wireless router that currently still has 15.05.1 installed (with LuCI). It's a 4MB flash / 32MB RAM device. It's not going to be connected to a public network.

Is there any use trying to upgrade to a more recent release? I'd like to keep being able to use LuCI.
