Surprise, surprise, Raspberry Pi 4 has been launched!

Faster CPU, dual 4k HDMI support, up to 4GB RAM, USB type C, USB3 and (finally!) no more bottlenecking the ethernet port over USB2: full gigabit speeds!

Also: same old price 😍

I wanted to make sure my computer stays connected to my router in case the loose LAN cable gets pulled out by my pets roaming around.

Instead of spending money$ on a new cable like a normal person would, I spent countless hours researching for the right keywords, and found the perfect free solution - apparently it's called "bonding" and allows Linux to gracefully fall back from Ethernet to WiFi, all while having a single IP address:

We need more heroes like this:

"A quick update. I've continued to try to learn about netfilter_conntrack and its behavior toward "invalid" packets, and I've learned some more important things. Because there seems to be EXCEEDINGLY little documentation about any of this stuff, I'd like to at least put it online here."

These are hardware kill switches.

Not a webcam cover. Not software disabled Wi-Fi. Kill switch.

Laptops should have these.

Ours do.

"Battle testing data integrity verification with ZFS, Btrfs and mdadm+dm-integrity" along with clarifying some myths:

At least I no longer feel weird/scared for having chosen btrfs+raid5 for my "NAS" storage few years ago.

That feeling when you finally get to the front of the queue in front of Gotthard road tunnel and the green light comes on...

Opus codec at 32kbit (stereo) is perfectly fine for casual listening during noisy commute, which means I can fit 4x more songs on my phone (compared to 128kbit mp3). Cue audiophile pitchforks.

My new goal for "recreational programming" - anything I write has to fit in 100 lines, including comments. Keeps things simple and feature creep out.
