It turns out that when our dedicated server, of which The Drake Network among other virtual private servers are hosted upon which we manage, was restarted due to an issue with our up-stream provider, that it turns out our was silently corrupt!

Yay, what fun! Not -,==,-

A video of Piggy Iggy in his hatchling years (approximately two years ago) eating one of his favorite meals, which is blueberries ^,==,^

I'm fucking mad over this shit, as I'm heavily immunosuppressed due to the medicine I must take for my disabilities.

Anti-vaxxers should be ASHAMED of themselves. They are not only causing great harm to their children but to others also. I definitely did not need to see this :(

SO I am off to see my audio engineer to have my cyborg implants adjusted.

LOL Just seeing my audiologist to have some new programs put in to my hearing aids for the new Bluetooth interface I have purchased the Siemens easyTEK

Not shown I forgot to put it on is an LED floodlight as well

Just made a handheld mount for my Samsung Note8 and an external RODE shotgun mic with a handle @phobos_dthorga

Damn fibromyalgia is kicking my butt these last few days

Traffic graph for our home network, I am running smooth wall and this was installed at the end of last December

About the "security issue" on #VLC : VLC is not vulnerable.
tl;dr: the issue is in a 3rd party library, called libebml, which was fixed more than 16 months ago.
VLC since version 3.0.3 has the correct version shipped, and did not even check their claim.


Spicy take this but I LIKE the new Twitter design! The performance is so much better over the old one which ran like a dog on my high-end gaming PC and your position is properly remembered when navigating back and forth.

I doubt many will agree with me though, BECAUSE CHANGE.

Finally took the time to get my raspberry pi 3 setup as a pi-Hole it is a DNS based AdBlocker, runs well

@hiddensoul Ham radio for sure! These are probably the only remaining area of customer electronics which is not designed with a "DO NOT SERVICE" mindset...

So I am training my fish, I have already got them trained that when I tap the top cover and open it they come uo for food now just before that I am setting the colour changing lights Green. I am ONLY using green for feeding time not for mood effects, that hope is that in a few weeks they will associate green with food

A more literal example, I literally do gardening for a living. I get paid $15/hr to pull weeds while listening to podcasts all day, because rich people hate being outside and touching dirt. This shit is not that hard. Any dumbfuck with enough fingers left to hold a shovel can do it. And yet I am still paid what is, to me, a comparatively stupid amount of money, because rich people spend cash like they breathe air.

I now share a workspace with a co-worker and i can see his screen and he doesn't have fedi or even twitter pulled up, or discord. i guess he posts all day on a site called AutoCad??? fukkin boomers.

It makes me wonder how people whether it be friends, family or workers that are responsible for maintaining you dignity and your health sometimes even the very things that keep you alive can be so arrogant and uncaring.

make sure when discussing strikes, make sure to not treat people who rely on these services as scabs (disabled people who may be homebound who have to do shopping online) vs people who can and have the privilege to support strikes. Suggest alternatives to them but don't blame them when corporations prey on disabled people when they create these services that become integral to them.
