THE MYSTERY DEEPENS

Show thread

Finally found a good quality kvm, installed it and works great...for ONE of my computers!

The work computer OTOH has some major hot pink color issues, somewhere between the monitor => kvm => usb-c hub => macbook.

Apple has been...less than helpful

Every KVM switch aimed at home users is made by the same few manufacturers, with the same half dozen brand names slapped on them, they all range between $30-100 and all begin to fail after 6 months.

What the eff.

โ€œthinking about how software companies slowly chip away at the idea of consent by turning every "no" into "not right now," every "stop this" into "do this less often," every "i don't want that" into "maybe later"โ€

Yes, software corporations are moving deeper into abusive relationship habits with their users.

I just want to make this perfectly clear: I will never use (known to be) backdoored crypto. I will not purchase "compliant" devices. If it comes down to it, I will stockpile grandfathered legacy devices.

Don't let the coronavirus hype distract you. They're pushing this shit through **right now**.

Biggest stumbling block so far is the ssh keypair alongside all the code (on my windows drive) that ansible refuses to use because it thinks everything is 0777 ๐Ÿ˜‚

Took the plunge and installed WSL on my Win10 rig.

So far, so good. Once I get vagrant, virtual box and ansible to play nicely, I can finally pick up some personal dev projects I let lapse. ๐Ÿคž
