New blog post: 2020 Ends, a New Year Begins

Thank you all and let's have a great year 2021!

I find this an interesting and understandable read about how the -19 works.

"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

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.

#freebsd #32bits #pcengines

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.

- #PinePhone @ManjaroLinux CE box + image

- PinePhone Qi charging, NFC & keyboard

- #SOEdge AI module-call to action

- #PineCube IP camera now available+ more lenses coming

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 :)
