Things which your project could use which immediately make me stop being interested in touching it at all:

- Google groups
- Bazaar
- LaunchPad
- SourceForge
- Slack

Don't use those things, thanks.

For fuck's sake stop using fucking Slack for your open source project, christ. Get it through your fucking skulls, Dudebros. This is some basic fucking shit.

I put together a blog on using OpenBSD to create a highly available firewall pair.

I'm still fairly new to OpenBSD in terms of experience, so I'm sure I've probably got something wrong, let me know if so!

Apple: "Where can we find somewhere with low taxes for our European focused business?"

Ireland: "Here! We'd be happy to have you!"

Apple: "Okay thanks."

EU: "Wait a minute guys! You are not playing fair! Ireland, you have to tax Apple more, like a lot more!"

Ireland: "But… we don't want to."

EU: "You have to! It's not fair otherwise."

Apple: "What in tarnation have we stumbled into?"

TIL that MPEG LA (yes, the Moving Pictures Expert Group Licensing Association) licenses patents for Qi wireless charging. But Qi cannot even tell you if these patents are sufficient or if they cover wireless charging. Or if they’re offered under RAND wirelesspowerconsortium.com/kn

If you actually want to make sure your Android Phone routes all dns queries to a local dns server (which might in my case route to a port opened by Tor Browser), you can add ips to you loopback device like so:

ip addr add 8.8.8.8 dev lo
ip addr add 8.4.4.8 dev lo
...

This way, at least the dns requests will not be leaked to google dns (or cloudflare's 1.1.1.1)

A happy ending to the Better Blocker saga

TL; DR: Apple have been in touch and offered us a way to migrate to our new not-for-profit without impacting the experience of existing Better Blocker (@better) customers.
