I'm not currently subscribed to Patreon largely because when money on the Internet is concerned I have a long wait and see what happens cool down. There are a lot of Internet start ups that come and go like a flash in the pan and a lot that get bought quickly and morphed into something else. If you are going to have some way to charge me money, I need some stability. I have no problem being an early adopter, as long as you don't have a link to my bank account or credit card (even through a third party).

Summary

A while back I posted an initial review of iOS 11 and a follow up along with a what I admit was a bit of a rant about a beta of iOS 11.2.

This morning the UPS guy greeted me with a new Ubiquiti UniFi access point destined for use at work. I have been using a Mikrotik RB951-2HnD as a router and access point but I'm wanting to take advantage of 802.11ac various reasons so I ordered a UAP-AC-IW to replace the built-in Mikrotik WiFi. I'm still going to use the Mikrotik as a router and switch.

I've been playing Elite: Dangerous on and off for a little over a year now and there have been a time or two where I thought that it might be a sweet experience in VR, but honestly not even flying around the black has been enough to really light the lust fire...

It shouldn't surprise anyone that the Internet is under attack, but if it does, or if you want to know what you can do about it read on.

Screenshot from MacRumors

I feel like I should explain why this irks me so. Apple just made a change so drastic in the functionality of their user interface (remember that Control Center is supposed to provide you with quick access to common functions from anywhere within the operating system) that they feel the need to present the user with a modal pop-up dialog box explaining why the user's understanding of the effect of the action that they just took is wrong.

I think this would be the perfect dystopian future.

It's probably a testament to the iPhone that I even have these gripes. I was never much of a mobile web user before and compared to others I am sure I'm not much of one now, but I do look at things on my phone now more than I used to.

Wherein I feel like I am the product again...

So lets do a little thought experiment.

I have been trying to get AWStats running on my Debian 9.2 (Stretch) web server. It has been fighting me. This is as much a note for future me as it is for you.

I have been meaning to play around with containers for a while but for the life of me have not found a real reason to. I feel like without a real use case, any attempt I'd make to learn anything useful would be a huge waste of time. There are a bunch of neat toys out there, from running random ASCII art commands to a crazy script that 'emulates' some of the insane Hollywood style computer screens, as well as base images for all manner of application stacks and frameworks, but all of those are easily installable using your favorite package manager.

I monitor the DSM version on my Synology NAS with my icinga2 instance and sometimes alerts pop while I'm not in a position to run the upgrade using the normal GUI process.

iPad Impressions

I mentioned a few things in my first post that I thought might be better on the iPad than the iPhone.

There are a lot of reviews of iOS 11 out there already and as is almost always the case, people are complaining that things changed. This is not that. Part of the reality we live in with our consumer-oriented technology demands is that things change. As a whole iOS 11 seems to be an improvement over previous versions and in general I'm happy with it.

So I Heard You Like Videos

As a follow up to my Favorite Podcasts post, I figured I would talk a bit about my favorite Youtube channels. A while back I wrote a Flask app to take a bunch of different web services that I didn't feel like having accounts on and turning them into RSS feeds. In the case of Youtube I combine the RSS feeds of each channel into a single RSS feed that I subscribe to. This makes it a lot easier to keep up with the periodic deluge of videos without having to fool around with a bunch of bookmarks or having a Google account.
