This is the ideal laptop pointing device. You may not like it, but this is what peak performance looks like:

Which streaming platforms do you use to consume movies and television shows?

Boosts are highly appreciated.

Seriously considering dumping the ELK stack I setup for centralized log management in favor of Graylog. Holy cow this looks way easier and better.

Looks like the ESXi patch (ESXi670-202102401-SG) I applied to our hosts yesterday resolved the issue on the ESX side, and our vCenter server appliance is already the appropriate build (17138064)

Well this marks a new era for myself. I'm at work streaming a movie off of my Starlink connected Plex server at 1080p without issue.

Rural selfhosting just got a lot more interesting.

Another major plus when using the pass password manager:
Using the rofi-pass script to enter credentials into any place that you can type text, including RDP and VNC remote desktop sessions. No need to keep password files and/or extensions installed on remote machines. This doesn't require sharing of the clipboard either. Winning!


Plex: Psst, hey... wanna play classic Atari games and your roms on your plex server?

Me: Hell yes!


In Early America our present politicians would almost all be tarred and feathered by angry mobs for betraying Americans and prioritizing political theater for their own selfish gain.

TFW: Raspberry Pi foundation force-pushes a microsoft gpg key and vscode repository to everyone in a package update. Without letting the community know. Or explaining such a strange decision.
If people wanted microsoft's code on their pi's, they'd enter in a few commands to add the repo and the package themselves. Just like any other piece of software. Why make this the default for everyone? RPi Foundation get a huge check from MS or something?

Hello fosstodon folks, just moved over so here's my . I'm a local tech support person from Hampshire, UK, with a love of open source over data silos and third-party services. Glad to be here!

To test, I created a systemd service on my Plex VM to establish and keep alive a reverse ssh tunnel to my VPS. I then configured a virtual host in the nginx config on the VPS to port forward to the listening port on the tunnel. I was then able to access my Plex server running on my home network over the public internet. 👍

Using to host services isn't ideal it turns out. Starlink uses CGNAT, which basically puts you into a double-nat situation.

In other words, you can't simply setup a port forward in your home router and expect someone from the internet to be able to connect to a service running in your network, even if you set DMZ.

I was able however to setup reverse-tunnels to a vps and expose my services that way. PITA but workable.

Speed is phenomenal tonight. I've only had a fraction of these speeds with my previous janky 4g booster setup.
