Pandora papers released, so crypto currencies go up in price. I see a pattern.

Brittain wants to put people that stop traffic in prison for 6 months? I thought self defense was acceptable.

Needed to install xquartz on mac in order to reach the graphical console in lxd on linux to install windows.

Anyone know how to make lxd give a tcp socket instead of a unix socket for a console type=vga connection?

Are there good brands for computer mice?

Ethically produced would be top notch. Linux compatible is a must.

Mouse wants: wired and around 5 buttons would be grand, so I can go back and forwards in browser.

📈 🧅 How has the use of v3 onions grown in the last year? New on the blog, a guest post from Tobias Höller on his team's research about the status of v3 onion services on the Tor network:

Started thinking about an old friend that died many years ago. Daniel was into extreme sports, did everything that's dangerous. He died when he slipped in his shower at home. It's weird why he popped up in my brain right this instance, and it's also nice to know that memories stick even when we're not here anymore.

If you are 40 years old and your midlife crisis hasn't kicked in yet, just remember that Homer Simpson is officially 39 years of age.

You're welcome.

The treatment of Julian Assange is insanity. No matter what you think of him as a person or as a journalist, no matter if he had sexually abused someone or not, the Kafkaesque and demeaning treatment of him and his case is an embarrassment to the legal system and human rights.

what my girlfriend thought dating a software engineer would be like: "honey, I got an AI robot maid to do all our cooking for us"

what dating a software engineer is actually like: "if that microwave connects to the internet we're heating all our food with a blowtorch from now on"

Everyone should understand that is not the currency of the internet, IPv4 addresses are. And they're going up in price...

They're totally happy with renting out space that they paid (and pay) nothing for, for prices like 1 USD per month. Why would they help move to IPv6? Not happening. Short term solution to this is the obvious: force everyone not using their space to hand it over. What you can't use for 5 years into the future should just be handed back. Ban large ISPs from charging for IPv4 addresses to their downlinks.

There is obviously a shortage of these IP addresses and the long term solution is to replace the whole internet with IPv6, which is not likely to happen anytime soon. Because: the ones that own the internet links that we need to connect to also own the IP addresses.

Apple also has 16.7 million IPs. And AT&T has the same. And the US postal service - they don't even deliver email (nor real mail anymore). The US DoD has 233M IPv4 addresses ($9B in market value). That's like 5% of all IPs ever available. And small ISPs struggle to get 250.
