I'm having a hard time justifying the cost of WiFi 6 for a new mesh system... we'll have gigabit internet soon (finally!) but honestly I'd only expect to get the max of out that if I was hardwired. I can deal with 300 Mbps or thereabouts over the air.

Any suggestions on systems / brands? To be honest I'm leaning towards the Google WiFi system just because they all seem mostly the same and I get 10% credit back for my Google One membership.

(Yes yes I know, don't mention google here... srry)

It's shit like this that makes me know my next laptop will be from an actual Linux vendor like System76.

Me & my big bro trying to remember a LEGO set we had growing up:

It was a pirate ship

No, it was a space ship

It had dragon wings

What? It had a periscope

There was a monkey involved

Wasn’t it a little boy?

Turns out, yes. It was all those things.

What made people like JSON was that they thought “Oh it’s just JavaScript, we can eval it straight up” and things were happy happy joy joy and then they remembered that there is something called malicious actors and then they had to write a parser anyway and everyone died.

Decided to go with the flow and switch my default branch to main.
