astrsk,

I’ve been having some issues with random IoT devices bypassing my pihole despite it being a router-level DNS for all my devices. Can you go into more detail about dst-nat and how I might be able to improve catching requests so they can routed to pihole for filtering? My router is running openwrt and pihole is on a VM in my hypervisor that’s directly connected to the router. This is the first time I’m hearing about dst-nat.

astrsk,

That’s exactly how it works. Capitalism reacts to threats of loss, it’s up to the workers to decide if that is enough. Sometimes it is, sometimes it’s not. But this is exactly what should be happening regardless.

astrsk,

I have a DJI Mini 3 pro and the top speed is 36mph unloaded. Granted it fits in the palm of my hand and the motors the diameter of a US quarter. But at the same time, it fits in the palm of my hand and the motors are only the diameter of a US quarter!

astrsk,

Can’t wait for the inevitable video to drop of Gavin, I mean Elon, trying to video chat and then it fails badly.

astrsk,

You got it :)

astrsk,

Debian is (rightfully) known for being lightweight and very stable. Particularly with older hardware, while still being quite compatible with newer hardware. Their long-running release cycles tend to not break whenever updates do roll out. Ubuntu is Debian based as well, its focus however is on user friendliness and usability, especially on the GUI front. Ubuntu server is perfectly fine, but it’s heavy handed compared to a minimal Debian installation with just a handful of packages selected purposefully by the user for the task it is intended for. There have also been more vocal complaints about whatever Canonical is trying to do with snaps/snap store.

Most beginners with Linux I would more encourage to try Debian for its stability and speed because it’s a great platform to learn Linux on as well as experiment with whatever goal they have by way of packages and projects available all over the open source side of the web.

astrsk,

Great, now the flat earthers are gonna talk endlessly about this

astrsk,

This, op.

You clearly know enough about what you want already. A minimal install of Debian with just a handful of apt commands will get you exactly what you want in just a handful of minutes.

astrsk,

The worst part is they don’t even need to make an app. Dozens exist already. I’ve been using Fing for years to help troubleshoot at home.

Distro for experienced Linux user

Hi, I’m looking for a distro for my laptop. My first distro was Pop!_OS, then I switched to Fedora, then Arch for a year and 2 months ago I switched to Fedora Silverblue, because I wanted to try immutable distro that relies on containers and flatpaks to be usefull. Silverblue is great but not so much for me, its not flexible...

astrsk,

The one thing I’ve learned over the years is that the more experience you have with Linux, the less you rely on preconfigured distributions. Find a stable minimal install and build up your own set of base packages, DE, configs, etc.

Only you know your habits and needs and experience is how you narrow down the field.

For me personally, I have found my groove in a minimal Debian install with a first run setup script or two that is repeatable and automatable so I can start with a known quantity for any applicable need I have.

astrsk,

Boosting so I can revisit this comment in a couple years.

astrsk,

Combine that with the 20-30 seconds my system takes to do bios memory training on the DDR5 ram and we’re practically back to the “go make some coffee while the system boots up” days 🤦

astrsk,

Exactly right. No amount of loss prevention investment will make up for a broken and damaged economy.

The New 8bitdo Retro Keyboard shipped early. Small-ish Male Hand for scale. (midwest.social)

I can try to answer any questions, but it doesn’t seem like the 8bitdo Ultimate software is availible for download yet. Im not big into mechanical keyboards, this is actually my first, so I don’t have much direct comparison experience to other keyboards....

astrsk,

Got mine today too, really loving it so far. Space key has that nice thock to it. Styling is nice, macro programming was easy. The big buttons feel good too, they’re a single switch key but stabilized well enough to hit anywhere and as hard as you want.

My only issue is that the caps lock and scroll lock lights don’t work. Not a dealbreaker for me and I’ll probably pull it apart to see if I can fix it myself but it seems about on par with 8bitdo’s other products in terms of quality. Not A+ but still a wonderful product.

astrsk,

I use Edge on Linux as my user agent in Firefox on Windows just so I can give some engineers a laugh.

astrsk,

Who quite frankly, despite his persistence, was a lil’ bitch.

astrsk,

Exactly why I still have and maintain my Apple IIe and old consoles. Both as nostalgia bait for myself but also as a way for my future kids to understand where we started. I don’t expect them to care, but I know I can trust toddlers with the games and programs and technology from the 80s and 90s without having to deal with parental controls or internet privacy concerns. This old tech can be valuable in both education and safe, fun entertainment until kids can learn to think critically about what they’re doing.

astrsk,

Yeah gonna disagree. West Coast US here and it’s been a stocking stuffer treat every Christmas in my family since the 90’s and very much front center in the holiday section at grocery stores.

astrsk,

The difference is that the same house in 1990 at 12% still only cost $150k. Today at 7% it costs $1.2m

Source: the house I grew up in, county sales records.

astrsk,

I really wonder what it is about TotK that makes for such wildly different opinions. Everything about TotK was a vast improvement over BotW for me. Up to and especially including revisiting the same locations to see how they’ve changed and exploring all 3 levels of the map to their fullest extent. I stopped playing BotW the moment I beat it after ~90 hours of play time. But I’ve continued to return to TotK nearly 300 hours in now, after beating it in about the same 90 hours originally. It’s just endlessly interesting wandering and getting sidetracked and finding / figuring out side quests.

I have a couple friends who beat it for the sake of beating the next Zelda game but the majority of my small circle continues to play, some even putting off beating it just to explore more. It’s very interesting seeing such different approaches, hearing what people focused on and how they tackled the openness. I’m not sure I witnessed the same phenomenon with games like Skyrim. Something about this one feels different at least. Hard to describe.

astrsk,

I believe it was announced that all charged individuals have until the 25th to turn themselves in. Might be a good note under the Arrest section of the Georgia case.

I just started using Linux... any great tips?

I just installed Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS (Cinnamon) on an empty laptop a couple days ago and have been experimenting a lot. I’m coming from being a Windows user since I was just a little kid playing old DOS games on my grandpa’s Win-98 PC back in around 2000. My daily driver is currently running Windows 10 but I am pretty adamant...

astrsk,
