Unfortunately, someone from Russia (Alexey Knyazev) is selling my art as wooden puzzles. First, he sold my Wakeful Wolf without my consent.

I told him to stop selling my art and reported this illegal product everywhere I could. Today I saw that he started selling two other artworks of mine as a puzzle under a different company name.

Please don't purchase any puzzles from "woddopuzzles". or "Alexey Art".

Right before going to bed sounds like an excellent time to install an Mastodon upgrade.

Watered my plants, washed the dishes, cleaned the kitchen, wrote documentation, released 3.2.0

Surveillance capitalism is the same as climate change, but for data:

- Some people have been warning about its consequences for years
- Most people don't care because they don't feel concerned, they can't see it affecting them
- A few companies are making a lot of damage with the help of governments
- When we will face the consequences it will be too late
- We can still do something about it, and the sooner the better

Aaaaaarrrggghhh... Forgot about my bread in the oven again.

What's the preferred way to run your own DoH server today? I have the doh-proxy hack in my bookmarks from some time ago (, and I run unbound anyway, so their tutorial is more or less directly applicable.

Is that still they way to go?

one of the important new things i learned from running a mini-cluster of 4 vps nodes is the concept of cpu throttling and stealing. it's not something i ran into ever before so it felt nice to learn something new

Ok, so uninstalling / reinstalling that version didn't help.

But it turns out that upgrading to the current FortiClient release (needs support account, but no support contract) is an actual improvement for my use case: In contrast to some of the older versions, it's now back to just the VPN client without all the enterprise management baggage (disabling which used to require fiddling with the installer or registry, depending on version). That's all I need anyways.

IPv4 packet walks into a bar, bartender says “you look exhausted”.

What the hell is it now? I've been using an old version of the Fortinet VPN client on several of my machines to connect to the Fortigate 80C at home for ages, and suddenly it refuses to start on one computer with the useful error message "Administrator rights are required to start FortiClient!" (right after the UAC popup that grants those rights).

I was reading A History of Clojure and noticed the diagrams for "introduction and retention of code" comparing Clojure and Scala, made using Hercules. What an interesting way to think about stability. "… Clojure was to be extremely conservative about breaking changes. I wanted Clojure to be a stable tool for professionals… "

I keep bookmarking posts in order to certainly revisit them in the future, but then I never do.

Almost feels like my RSS reader with its ever-increasing pile of potentially interesting topics...

On the downside, both of the other TFTs I tried didn't show any picture at all when being fed with an ST High signal.

Not sure if this cat got one of the blackbirds living in the backyard, but things have been very loud for the past couple of minutes...

A moving article about one of the last two users of an #IronLung. He is using this medical device for 68 years after he was infected with #Polio as a child.

"Iron lungs were built to last, even if no one thought the people in them would."

Well. That attempt at upgrading the Mega ST with Cloudy / Storm ST / Lightning ST was rather unsuccessful. Not sure where the error was as of yet, but at least it's now back in a state where it boots as before...

What the... "Halp, all the people are not displaying the images in our marketing mails anymore, so we need a new standard to make the email client show brand imaging and avatars"?

Backed by Google and some more of the usual suspects.
