Current status: reading datasheets for cellular radio modules.
Waste of a Saturday morning, but the good news is:
- on and offsite baks are working perfectly via cron, ssh and rsync as they have for years.
- I had a spare box I could have had her up on with restored files, email and peripherals within a couple of hours
- I even had another contingency plan after/instead of that
- The new boxes I'm buying will all be linux with maybe 2 mswindows vm's, so I can sleep better.
- events like this remind them why I'm on retainer every month :-)
Wanted to make sure this gem made it over from birdsite (cw: Irma, source: https://twitter.com/ziyatong/status/906366780247040000 ) #irma
Why don't more Windows users switch to Linux? We discuss!
Hello mastodon.art :)
New to Mastodon :) I've created an account where I started publishing daily cyberpunk themed flash fiction & poetry. (it's @loveisanalogue )
Having done this I started understanding the federation thing a bit more, and I found mastodon.art.
I like the local timeline here better. I could move the account here. But I've already posted things there and some people are following me.
Maybe having two accounts is better, so people who want to follow the flash fiction only can do that without having to read my other posts. (And then I could boost the flash fiction here, or is that a misuse of multiple accounts?)
What do other people do? Thanks :)
@privatepenguin Did not contribute to Torvalds' salary, so got burned by him verbally?
Facebook has the nearly most vicious political discourse I've ever seen. All under real names.
That PA "anonymous" theory of creating jackasses isn't looking too good these days.
"Our technology is haunted by demons controlled by transhuman life forms"
"From Dieselgate to Wannacry to HP's sleazy printer ink chicanery, we are increasingly colonized by demon-haunted things controlled by nonhuman life-forms (corporations) that try to trick, coerce or scare us into acting against our own best interests.
"These devices go to great length to hide their workings from us, making them the ideal host organisms for opportunistic malware infections."
That is so weird: i'm proxied through Munich and Google keeps giving me french (fine, the more non-english the merrier), but it doesn't make any sense. If I enter e.g. montrer mon emplacement? It shows me munich.
I'm going to kill this ssh port map and try my other vps (also in munich) to see if it decides i'm german again :-)
