Ironically, shortly after posting previous message my phone started vibrating without showing any message. After a minute I got a notification for a missed call.

Here we go, we've got a phone that makes it impossible to answer a call!

It might be not a big deal in consumers. But is there really a different set of standards for medical or military use?

I see poor execution everywhere.

IT "solutions" that are actually poorly created and over engineered pieces put together with duck tape.

Netflix got me so deep into murder series that I don't see any other genre recommended. YouTube decided not to show the ad skip button when I cast to Chromecast on my phone, but it teases me that I'm "able" to skip an an ad in 5 seconds. I close the app instead.

What if current major content providers loose their market share just because of poor implementation of new features.

I'm back after almost a week long hike in Trinity Alps.

I plan to spend a long weekend and company-wide holiday hiking in Trinity Alps in upstate California.

Yesterday I picked up a backpack and packed. Surprisingly, everything fits including a camera, lenses and food.

I'll use an electronic map in addition to an old school map.

To keep my bottom dry and clean I cut out a shield out of a roll mat.

P.S. I like the term Upstate California, because Bay Area us referred to as "Northern California". Bay area is in the middle, imho!

(as I'm in a chatty mood)

I was also surprised how two products of a big corporation flooded my timeline.

Why a lot of tweets pretend to be toots and show up in my fediverse timeline?

Did my first swim in ages and it was better than expected!

I've migrated to the following setup:

* A virtual machine in Linode cloud
* The VM runs wireguard and redirects traffic from the ports that I care about
* My server connects to Wireguard

The trick is to initial a connection from the server to the VM when a WG interface is up. As it's the server that is able to connect to the VM (not the other way round).

The solution I came up was to ping VM after a wg0 interface is up. I basically have this:

PostUp = ping X.Y.Z.Z -c 10

I'm in the process of changing ISP. The new provider is cheaper and faster, but they don't provide a real IP. What would be the best way to redirect traffic from a real IP to a server behind NAT?

Tomorrow I will launch the curl user survey 2021 with a bunch of questions to users to learn what you think about curl, its future and its features. This annual procedure is really the best and only way we have to get feedback from users at a wider scale.

I've finally tried BTRFS snapshots. Enabled compression and regular snapshots. I hope my setup will work smoothly and reliably.

@dima do you know of any good opensource hosted whiteboard software?

How is doing? As I'm posting pictures, it might be a better fit.

Today I swam in the ocean for the first time after after I moved to California a year and a half ago! I did swim in the pool and did a couple of open water swim in the Bay before.

Hopefully one day my face will get used to cold water and I'll be as happy as this sea elephant.
