"The device, stationary, with all apps closed, transferred data to Google about 16 times an hour, or about 389 times in 24 hours. Assuming even half of that data is outgoing, Google would receive about 4.4MB per day or 130MB per month..." #privacy theregister.com/2020/11/14/goo

32 bits (still) matters!

I used OPNsense on my pcengines Alix 2d13 firewall.

The Alix 2d13 is a nice motherboard with a Geode CPU 32 bits x86 CPU.

I migrated to OPNsense after pfSense dropped support for 32 bits. Unfortunately, OPNsense also dropped support for 32 bits CPUs in the 19.1.7 release. I decided to install FreeBSD on my Alix to use it as my firewall.

Use a raspberry-pi 2 as a firewall with FreeBSD

I was using OPNsense on my pcengines alix firewall and was quite happy with it.

Unfortunately, OPNsense also dropped support for 32 bits CPU’s in the 19.1.7 release. I decided to install FreeBSD on the alix to use it as my firewall.

#freebsd #pf #raspberrypi #rpi #arm, #alix #pcengines
#stafwag @stafwag

Well i'm in...This is on NetBSD. Just a few config changes and authorizing my ssh key is all that was needed to let me in. I'll see if i can get FreeBSD going as well. Once my other SD cards come in.

Microsoft Leak, Sarcasm 

I'm sure Microsoft is fine with the source code leak. They love open source after all. They were probably just about to release all of this themselves but that pesky leaker beat them to it.

In my experience, people who think shell scripts are not the answer to $problem for a large value of $problem are also generally the people who don't know how to write shell scripts

Image quality improvements for the #pinephone rear camera. This is getting somewhere :)

Got some speedups in the megapixels app for the #pinephone

This is with the rear camera running at 1080p, it can also do 5MP but that halves the framerate.

Tux is posing in his big shoe for the @PINE64 #PinePhone camera on #postmarketOS. Oh and the selfie cam works too! It's a bit slow and needs more work of course, but #megapixels from @martijnbraam is a good start. It's in postmarketOS edge in a few hours, and in ~1 day on stable.

The eleventh release of tut is out

The only new feature is that you can use relative date, everything else is just bug fixes. You can read more at the release page.

github.com/RasmusLindroth/tut/

A great thank you for all the kind words and help I've gotten with detecting bugs and spelling mistakes. Hopefully I'll get more time to develop new features in the near future :)
