IPv6 is great, but NAT is quite functional and is prolonging the demise of IPv4.

We should definitely be switching to the specification in RFC 6214. IPoACv6 is the latest standard.

Do you roleplay differently in private?

I was just working on my current Ironsworn story at work, and I suddenly wondered about whether I considered it to be personal or private, or how I would feel if someone started watching over my shoulder. It made me think if I would roleplay differently if I knew someone else was watching or would read the story later....

Log dilemma; seeking your input

I have a small dilemma regarding logging a QSO, and I’m wondering if you can guide me through it. I made a contact the other day while doing POTA, but I did not capture the entire callsign. The error was only revealed after I saw their re-spot on the POTA site; if it weren’t for that small glimpse, I would never know, and...

On the other hand, borrowing from aviation, I am keen to “use all available resources”, recognizing that so long as we have the tech and tools, we should use them, even if that may fly in the face of radio purity.

Hmm. I think this is generally fine, but if you were working a contest (like Field Day, for example), it would probably be cheating. I don't think there's any problem with taking the Eagle Scout route, though. Holding yourself to a higher standard of honor brings its own rewards.

It's been a feature at least since the Reddit protest last year, which is when I started using kbin.

This is so obvious. I don't understand why I don't see it being reported on more often.

‘This isn’t how good scientific debate happens’: academics on culture of fear in gender medicine research (www.theguardian.com)

Critical thinking and open debate are pillars of scientific and medical research. Yet experienced professionals are increasingly scared to openly discuss their views on the treatment of children questioning their gender identity....

What distro should I use on my potato?

I have an HP Stream 11 that I want to use for word processing and some light web browsing - I’m a writer and it’s a lightweight laptop to bring to the library or coffee shop to write on. Right now it’s got Windows and it’s unusable due to lack of hard drive space for updates. Someone had luck with Xubuntu, but it’s...

Puppy Linux was my first ever Linux distro. Great memories.

Sort by "hot" or "top" and you'll probably never see the spam posts. People always downvote them.

Most of the communities with significant spam problems have no moderators other than ernest. It's up to him to recruit more people to help moderate those.

We need more houses and better wages. Congress needs to pass some significant reforms to reduce income inequality.

I'm holding out for the $50 minimum wage. The MIT living wage calculator shows over $30 as a living wage where I live.

Not starving is considered splurging now, got it.

My last job they really didn't like us doing nothing during down time, they really wanted us to be sweeping the floor or some other busy-work. There was a lot of work to be done like that, so it got boring, fast.

Now I have a job with tons of downtime and my boss is explicitly fine with us reading books, playing video games, watching Netflix, etc. as long as we are responsive when customers come in. It's a great gig (although low-paying), especially for a college student.

Now if I get bored it's my own fault.

Nothing about the religion's teachings about gender, sexuality, and sin support mistreatment of people who believe or act differently. The broad strokes your applying to the entire religion is exactly the same as saying that all Muslims are violent terrorists just because of the actions of an extremist few.

In short, it's bigotry.

You linked exmormon.org? That's one of the most vitriolic and biased websites dedicated to spreading hate about members of the Church. It's clear you're strongly prejudiced, so there's no point in me trying to convince you to look beyond your own animosity.

Good day.

Mormons are not at all tolerant. Just because they aren’t calling for the death of LGBT people, and are still willing to take their tithes, doesn’t make them tolerant.

You are conflating tolerance with approval. There's a spectrum of attitudes one might have towards any particular group of people. Here they are with most friendly on the left and most unfriendly on the right:

Kinship -- Friendship -- Approval -- Tolerance -- Disapproval -- Distrust -- Fear -- Hatred

Tolerance is the acceptance or putting up with something that one doesn't approve of. Institutionally (and broadly among individuals) the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is tolerant of LGBT people, but it doesn't not approve of LGBT lifestyles. It sounds like you want more than tolerance. In a pluralistic society, I don't think that is a reasonable position to take.

The religion's teachings expressly prohibit discrimination on any basis. Seems to me the only bigot here is you.

Bernie Sanders: It’s time for a 4-day work week | CNN Opinion (www.cnn.com)

The wealthiest people in this country have never had it so good. While income and wealth inequality in the United States is soaring, more than 60% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, we have one of the highest rates of childhood poverty among major countries on Earth, and more than 650,000 people are homeless....

I like the ten hour shifts. More money for me.
