menstruation + covid vax 

Oh hey there's an actual study gathering data on the menstrual side effects of covid vaccines: redcap.healthinstitute.illinoi

I just did the thing and they did a basically fine job of making the language in the survey gender-neutral so that's cool ✔️

If you are a menstruator (past or present) and have had at least one vaccine dose, consider participating!

If you really hate someone share a Google Doc with them. They'll never be able to remove it for anything in the world.

I keep reading and and it seems a fitting mental autocorrect.

Are you getting a bit annoyed by the rubbish articles that repeat the misleading idea that there are only a few alternatives to Goodreads?

Well, here's a live list of book and reading services I've discovered!

Is there a network of sports fans who host each other's VPN servers so they can avoid blacked out games?

TIL I can press F6 to search in Nano editor instead of almost closing the window with CTRL+W every time.

Makes mucking about it proxmox much better!

I've got a number of containers running different things internally (test blogs, todo lists, etc)
Some of them I want exposed to the world. Some I want accessible from inside my network (house) or over the VPN.

What's the easiest way to setup locally resolvable names that only work internally?

And what names are safe to use.

I've lost track but I think .local and .lan aren't safe to use anymore?

Are you ready for some Duckling spam? 'cause I came across 7 Australian Wood Duck ducklings this morning, and their attentive parents.

Don't 👏🏻 connect 👏🏻 your 👏🏻 TV 👏🏻 to 👏🏻 the 👏🏻 Internet!

Ever! Buy something - a Roku, an Apple TV, a PS4, an Xbox, a Raspberry Pi running Plex, *anything* - and use that as your video source. Don't ever use the TV's own Internet-connect apps. First, they're guaranteed to spy on you. All sly TV brands do this as far as I can tell. Second, they *suck* in comparison with what you get from a set top box.

Just don't do it!

Just saw a job posting that looked like "Director of Product Disinformation at The Wikimedia Foundation" and thought I had found my calling.

Unfortunately it's "Director of Product (comma) Disinformation"

They want you to help prevent disinformation on Wikipedia.

I was hoping it would be a position where I could just make up shit about Wikimedia all day.

"Our Portland Offices are actually powered by tiny birds tweeting all day".

Everything is setup and working in the homelab and the house at large.

For some reason, the network cables plugged into the USB-C adapter for the work Mac was disconnecting everything off the switch when the USB-C plug wasn't connected to the MacBook.

Next project is to figure out how to sync audio for the Raspberry Pis scattered around the house with speakers. Currently they're setup per room for (mainly) Spotify playback. But I want to get the audio synced so they all play together.

Setup the new router today.
I redid my naming scheme and put the older devices and anything "smart" on the 2.4 GHz network.

I named it LAN Before Time. I'm pretty pleased with myself for that name.

(Silence of the LAN is the guest network.)

Router is this one, because I'm always curious when people talk about new toys:
