❤️ With Alzheimer's and dimmentia being so common in my family. This is really welcome.
New firewall required
Upgraded my internet plan this week (contract was up, my current package price was going up, the 1Gb package was only $5/month more) and it has become exceedingly clear: my Unifi Security Gateway is not going to cut it.
So I think I'm just going to go with something I can use to run PFSense/OPNSense/OpenBSD on instead.
Maybe the APU4d4 but will also start researching this weekend.
Writing new user setup documentation.
Decided to work smarter and not harder. Rather than writing pages and pages with loads of screenshots for adding an AD user via "Active Directory Users and Computers" I just replaced the whole damn thing with a single PowerShell command.
This is just one of the reasons CLI is better for just about everything.
Granted I could write a quick customized PowerShell GUI that would be much less to document, but this is still far easier.
FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE and 13.0-RC5 that is.
Nintendo’s guideline for port forwarding for the Switch. 😂
This is kind of neat. Federated comments system based on the Matrix protocol: https://cactus.chat/
stress, medical gore
When it rains it pours. My mother had cornea transplant surgery today (after FOUR previous cancellations) and then this afternoon my wife took the mother-in-law to the ER with what we thought was a gallbladder attack. Turns out it was a hernia pinching and killing part of her bowel so she has to have surgery right away. This leaves my disabled (in a wheelchair, paralyzed on the left side from a stroke) father-in-law with no one trained to take care of him.
I watch over the stuff with blinky lights. Pretty boring and entirely unremarkable.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
