My first part of the new Ubiquiti gear I am ordering over the next few months can't get here fast enough. Just had a full meltdown of the home network (all mikrotik) due to rstp and some device freaking out and rx/tx'ing itself causing many ports to go blocking and breaking the entire network.
Fedex though very understandably, safety of workers first over delivering of packages. Till then: https://xkcd.com/281/ & yes my package is stuck in Memphis TN too.
I may want to put nginx or something like that in there too... A custom compile of unbound allows for DNS-over-HTTPS...
I think I am almost done with all the steps needed to build my 'routervms'. I mean they are only centos 8 stream + iptables (nftables/firewalld killed off for now) + unbound + postfix + certbot + wireguard tunnels + zerotier tunnels + frr. Next step? Turn all the manual steps into ansible and deploy!
My first idea with mastodon will be to craft my own twitter scraping bot that posts to an individual account on mastodon. Of course make it clear this is a bot posting a clone of the original post.
This idea came about due to the effort by someone to create an archive of the previous presidents posts to twitter before he deleted posts. The interface there was a bit clunky but worked. The idea here is it would be a part and appear like a twitter post almost.
So did some looking and not sure which way to go about this. I could use twitter api or I could go scrape the pages.
Random person with an RHCE that does entirely random and sometimes bad things to Linux.
A server for me and any friends that may want an account. Also bots, any bot I create will have a home here.
