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!

On the 20th of December 2020 my true love sent to me

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?

Alright #fedi
Who has solar power and how do you feel about it?

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:

There must be an easy way to use the Android share to send a highlighted passage to WordPress and include a link to the page and title of the article.

Bonus points for Markdown.
Is it really this hard or am I just missing it?

FOSS Folks may be interested to hear the folks behind ReadTheDocs have launched EthicalAds. A privacy-focused ad network for developers.
(My brother is one of the founders.)

As my selfhosting projects continue to grow, I feel like it's time to move everything off the same IP range.

Anyone have a good tutorial on how?

I don't have any router besides a TPLink Archer C3200. I also have a Qnap NAS.
Ideally I'd like to set the proxmox box on it's own IPs. Put little things like Wyze cams and Rokus on another.

But I'm nervous to mess with my setup. I don't have as much time to tinker as I used to and there's some things I need to not break (Nextcloud and VPN).

The Mariana Trench is one of the most inaccessible places on earth. Only a handful of people have ever made it there.

It has 391 reviews on Google.
