Pinned toot

To people on who favorite what seem to be random toots of mine: if you're favoriting my toots because you have a genuine interest in them, that's fine. I know people have interests outside of work and sex workers are no exception.

However, if you're favoriting my toots in an attempt to get me to use your services, you might want to check my profile first before doing so. I announce there that I'm a gay man and yet I keep getting favorites of this sort from women.

Time for a new as my old one's a bit out-of-date.

I'm a 37 year-old cis man living in western PA, USA. I work as a and (unfortunately) backup . I'm primarily a user.

I'm also into , my username's my callsign.

I started back in July and am now a student glider/#sailplane pilot.

My other interests include , , , (which I used to work in) and , especially my own named Freyja.

I mentioned that I had my second glider flight on Sunday. I took my DSLR camera with me this time, and when my flight instructor had control of the glider I took pictures. Here are four of them.

It was another great day for gliding/soaring. Too bad I couldn't stay long due to Freyja's vet appointment.

The odd part is that this is affecting my EAP-protected WiFi (also a software access point, but on a different system and bridged to the LAN). The same packet losses are happening there now, whereas before I added back the WiFi to the gateway that network was working just fine. And merely doing a "ifconfig down ral0" to disable the wireless card on the gateway didn't fix the issue.

Anyone have a clue as to what might be causing this?

have you ever noticed that people who say things like "it's only X, how hard could it be?" and are serious about it are rarely good at anything?

This is your irregular reminder that crypto is short for cryptography, which is good and useful. The monster you're thinking of is cryptocurrency, which is currently a toy of the rich and the bro.

I've completed the final step in getting my network back to what it was before NetBSD's implementation of PF started to have issues with its network stack: reinstalling a wireless card and making it a software access point, including adding the firewall rules.

The system seems to be staying up but there are issues with dropped packets on the WiFi. I don't know what's causing it, though the fact that some packets are getting through suggests it's not a NPF setting.

A story so horrific I am forcing you all to share my pain. I expressed disbelief, but teacher friends on Twitter confirmed it is indeed A Thing.

If you license your work under a CC license that permits commercial use, someone in the US, Asia, or many African countries can use it commercially even in a way that you loathe.

International moral rights lawsuits don't work.

I love (and by that I really mean hate) the fact that CUPS running locally can say a printer job has completed while the remote CUPS it's actually sending the job to can show absolutely no sign that it received the job. You'd think there'd be some feedback about the local CUPS not being able to send the job to the remote CUPS, but there's none.
