I just *had to* leave a mark on the internet that day, didn't I?

My first adventure into - Orion (+nebula visible).

Canon EOS 1300D with f/1.8 35mm lens, 15 min total time, 5s per image. Stacked with DeepSkyStacker, postprocess in GIMP.

I captured the usual lights + darks + flats + bias pictures, but shooting from my balcony clearly shows a lot of light pollution (+ neighbor deciding now is the best time to heat up with wet wood ruins a lot of pictures).

I need to get better with focusing, and maybe I'll try a different zoom lens later.

How I imagined it:

I finally have a "usable" IPv6 subnet assigned. Time to start playing around.

BTW what's this "gateway" thing? Isn't IPv6 meant to be "it just works" autoconfigure + default-route-to-interface-and-you're-done kind of thing?

Okay.... but.... how? A simple example or a link to a document would be awesome.

Windows after you turn it on after a couple of weeks: OMG OMG OMG THERE'S AN UPDATE QUICK OMG HOG THE DISK DOWNLOAD ALL THE STUFF OMG while grinding down to a halt.

I'm sending this an hour after taking the picture and it still looks the same. The computer is still unusable. WTF.
