what if

what if we make the connect the pppoe, I know how to do that.

in fact, what if we stick a nice wifi dongle antenna in it and let the raspi be the router AP DHCP DNS everything

MH, I know a lot of you are struggling lately 

You're not alone. This life is hard, and MH issues don't always care where we're at, how good things are or how hard we try, and that just sucks.

Struggling sucks.

But you're not struggling alone. We're all trying to figure things out, and I'm glad that I get to see you all every day regardless of how bad a day you're having. I want to know how youre doing, so please keep talking about things. It's good to talk about them, and you're not doing anything bad or making anything worse by talking about it. On the contrary, it's comforting sometimes when we find that the feelings we have are shared by others or find a new way to express something we couldn't quite articulate before.

You are loved even when your brain won't let you feel like it. I'm glad that you're here, and I wouldn't be following you if I wasn't. :dragnheart:

trying to get rid of my dual NAT setup. I already managed to find out Telekom's mysterious PPPoE parameters and connect directly on laptop. Problem is, my router (running / firmware) is lacking the pppoe kernel module.

this was driving me crazy, nothing I tried managed to make it appear for opkg, till I finally understood—gluon uses the generic OpenWRT repos for most stuff, but the kernel doesn't mix. I tried another Freifunk community's opkg repo but the kernel version is incompatible. as far as I can tell, my city's firmware doesn't provide add-on packages…

I was tempted already to update our gluon, I want l2tp support too.

vegan food, cooking 

was a bit of an experiment but celery stir-fried with chilli as the oil flavouring works really well

was fun to console self with all these outfits and gadgets but back to budgeting harder I guess!

oh hey first salary is there let's take a look how much concrete money we get after discounts... oh.

(mentally subtracts various support money)
(mentally account for plane tickets x 4 / estimated time for children's immigration)
(mentally estimates expenses with moving etc)

hey turns out I'm not wealthy

"hmm so we need to add cgroup_enable=memory to the commandline.txt to use lxc. let's add a kernel parameter, what's the worst that could happen"

@owl the latter! I wanted to go with a housekeeping spirit of some kind, considered zashiki-warashi or Heinzelmännchen but in the end I decided for the nisse cos an interpretation of them appears in Hilda and I have very good memories of watching Hilda in this room with @enum and some other cuties

realised my raspi is doing double duty, working things I want to be in a DMZ (mastodon, backup/monitoring of transmom and other external servers) and things that are very internal (zigbee, NMS, backup/monitoring of personal devices).

was tempted to buy another :3 but honestly the raspi is pretty underwhelmed by his duties and can take more. so I'm going to make him plural instead~ and add a container.

only thing is, 'paopao' (=toottoot) is the name for a mastodon server. so the container will take this name. I need a new name for the household server.

after a lot of pondering I'll be going with nisse (cname tontu)

@porsupah aah cool it's 网 not 王, I didn't know it was used in China that way ^^

@twinkle

these days there's a trend for tools that are "like this 40-years-old command but better", which I've been exploring to great delight. I think usually "but better" means:

- faster
- options make sense
- colourful
- friendly
- written in Rust

ripgrep, tealdeer and bat quickly became needed at the tip of my fingers, I'm trying fd and bottom next

@twinkle it's linux. it's a computer where a man gives you pages to read, but he tends to bring a lot of pages so they're hard to read (there's a teal deer that brings easier reads but the man is more famous). and normally all these pages will be paged by a cat, though the cat doesn't wait for you to read so most folk prefer something more paced, or less, some even go for most. but now there's a bat and the bat can make the man pages be colourful so it's very nice (be sure to try it with the new bat, the old bat didn't know so many colours)
