I would like to congratulate Crowdstrike for nearly instantly popping up on every regulator radar by adopting their new "Do away with computers" strategy in their kernel mode driver

??? no google, I literally asked in quotes, what do you think the quotes were suppose to mean???

A google query of ' tcpdump "psample" ' but instead google auto corrected it to tcpdump sample as part of its spell checking

man was it really worth having DEI and priority in VLANs, vs not just having the extra 4 bits (aka VLANs all the way up to 65k)

Think of a alternate present where we could have had ports with 65536 VLANs on it, rather than QinQ or worse!

I wish whoever at Microsoft decided to deprecated/EOL the sane way of doing webhooks in Teams to step on a handful of BS1363s in the middle of the night.

Utterly nuts, Teams was already hard for me to test because it's hard to get any small setup where you can test anything, and now webhooks require whatever the hell "PowerAutomate" (billed separately by the looks of it) is.

Even better, they have given everyone 1-3 months to do a migration off it.

Distant screaming for the England vs Switzerland football game is making me realise how HLS makes everyone quite out of sync, I'm pretty sure I heard 4 different waves of cheering at the most recent goal

Hmm, he.net (and their popular free DNS auth name servers) appears to be gone from the .NET zone:

$ dig he.net @a.gtld-servers.net. |& grep status:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NXDOMAIN, id: 38169

It seems like it's in "clientHold" status:

$ whois he.net |& grep 'Domain Status'
   Domain Status: clientHold https://icann.org/epp#clientHold
   Domain Status: clientTransferProhibited https://icann.org/epp#clientTransferProhibited

Given it's set to expire in 2033, maybe there is some legal issue? Maybe not confirmed their contact details or something.

DZ: UkPol / London / ULEZ Cameras

DZ: UkPol / London / ULEZ Cameras

So, If you take the 2019 General Election map of Greater London, and then look at the map of ULEZ cameras, where the red dots are working ones, and the black ones are ones that are either missing or destroyed...

I might see a bit of a pattern! :P

Two maps, one is the 2019 general election map showing the edges being mostly blue, especially the south east, and the 2nd image showing a map of london with lots of red dots, but in the south east lots of black dots

Do/Have you used a CD/DVD/Bluray in a while?

What about burning a disk?

I'm surveying modern day awareness/usage of optical media, mostly to confirm some demographic theories, so if you know what a CD/DVD is, please help me (and maybe others) out by answering some ~10 questions here:

https://optical-media-survey.benjojo.co.uk/

And then please boost for better visibility! Thank you!

heh, I put my phone on charge and noticed that the charging rate started to go down, so moved the phone to be on a top of a metal heat sink and lo and behold; back up to the original charging rate!

Did not realise that fast charging makes that much heat, and that it has to throttle back otherwise

@demize I kinda suspect the whole thing was LLM'd, given the pages closest thing to describing AI is "Leveraging Artificial Intelligence
AI/ML manages network performance in realtime." and it also says "• DNS can be used for small or big networks.", a bonkers statement that surely can only have been written by a word blender

Also power factor metering, Not surprised that my desktop and my HP NAS has the best power factor (since they are server power supplies, and so have to care about PF). However very amused that my Lenovo USB-C Dock/Charger has a PF of 0.01 without anything connected

Another prometheus graph, the description is in the main post

I upgraded my desk PDU from a old 2005 APC one to a per port metered Raritan PX3-5892, and it's night and day. (It also comes with a built in Prometheus exporter!!!)

I also now cannot stop staring at the power consumption of each power port, you can see the POST of my desktop starting the first screen (after a long POST, it's a server motherboard) and then when Ubuntu starts the 2nd screen turns on.

You can even see my phone charging and throttling back the charge current over time.
