Small online Whisky tasting tonight. Some nice stuff in the mix.

Kodi on my Nvidia shield pro also sometimes complains that the source rate is too slow (despite having a Gigabit Ethernet Interface) - but then will play the UHD Blu-rays without further problems.

After I had to ssh into my stupid home NAS recently to expand a volume I realized that it is running some kind of .

Now I am wondering if I should just build my own image for it. Would give me the ability to properly update it regularly and I don't need the web interface anyways.
It also gives me the ability to brick it and I don't have enough space to take a backup beforehand. Meh.

Even for my personal servers I usually plan downtimes beforehand.

Today I saw an announcement that this mastodon instance is going down for maintenance. And I thought: "Oh nice, somebody is upgrading the servers"
Until a minute later it dawned on my that that would have to be me.

So yeah, I kept the announced downtime and my mastodon instance is back up 😂

Today I was supposed to fly to Reykjavik for EVE Fanfest - but because of C I don't. I miss doing normal stuff 🥺

Can anybody recommend Spanish speaking TV shows or movies? Preferably something that is available on the major streaming platforms.

I am currently trying to learn Spanish and watching subtitled stuff helped me a lot learning English (even though that was more than 20 years ago).


Fediverse ist wie Saarland, klein, geheimnisvoll, viel Wald drumherum und irgendwie kennt hier jeder jeden.

Schönes Zitat: "Ich brauche Privatsphäre. Nicht weil meine Handlungen fragwürdig sind, sondern weil euer Urteilsvermögen und eure Absichten fragwürdig sind." #privacy

So after a dozen different distributions in the last decade or two I am back at Linux and pretty happy right now. Makes me wonder why I switched in the first place. Guess I'll find out sooner or later 😅

Understand this, and plan accordingly.

The Chronicom is actually not a he, two episodes later they mention that their species doesn't have gender 🏳️‍🌈

Guess he wasn't a fan of mastodon 😅

Am I so annoyed by that I am currently installing a with on my workstation? Maybe 🤷‍♂️

Wow! The focusing of the James Webb Space Telescope is now complete, and a new demo image has been released, this time of a super crowded field of stars and gas in the Large Magellanic Cloud.

Go ahead, have a look! It's really amazing!

Folks, it's 2022. You cannot assume the machine you're running on has an IPv4 address. Yes, we've gone to great (absurd?) lengths to try to make sure this is the case, but it can't be guaranteed anymore.

If your app is still using dotted quads (looking at you #hamradio) then you need to at least do a single AAAA query to If you get an answer, you're behind NAT64 and will need to mangle the address yourself and use an #IPv6 socket.

Here is an example:

TIL: My TV only has a 100Mbit Ethernet Interface. Not enough to play some UHD Blu-rays via network 😅
