So, I think it is finally time to get around to applying the latest upgrade. Expect 5-10 mins of downtime in a bit.

Hey, sorry for not announcing the downtime today, I missed that the campus router move would take out this network segment.

Looking back, the 1990s-2000s were a weird anomaly in capitalism, where it felt like the old familiar 1980s cyberpunk fiction scenario of "a few billionaires will literally control the entire planet's Data Network" couldn't possibly happen because we'd managed to decentralise it all, only just in the nick of time, because first IBM and then Microsoft had been trying to slam the door shut. But the hackers had finally won and for good, with TCP/IP, HTTP and Open Source.

Those were good years.

Everyone who's following the news has already heard about Mariupol. Briefly: test drive of a chemical attack.

So I'm going to post Tais's schedule for her art streams, when she's going to collect money that goes to getting people out of Mariupol.

Streams this week are Tuesday 15:00-17:00 Kyiv time (this means the stream starts 14:00 CET or 13:00 UTC) and the same on Thursday.

Come watch Tais draw and help her save people from her home city.

Seriously; is anyone hiring? I just got let go because "I'm just not a good fit" with no specifics or other information given, my fiancee is suicidal, and I was going paycheck to paycheck.

I can do just about any sysadmin work.

Just since it has come up more than once: I have an extremely short moderation temper for genocide apologetics and pro-Russian propaganda these days.

Report it when you see it.
