After a ton of attempts with setting up multiple device VPN with #wireguard, I had to settle on one-interface/config-per-device. I just could not make this work any other way. Fortunately now I can actually do some routing on top of my point-to-point mesh.
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."

I'm probably the only one, but I'd love a "mute all bots" button. Only a few of them are somewhat fun, but I could easily live even without those.
I've hidden botsin.space and newsbots.eu, and am now slowly disposing of all remaining bots. My mute list is 99 % bots at the moment; either I'm lucky, or the Fediverse is a wonderful place with barely any awful people.
Yep, I'm racist towards bots. Mean, eh? Don't worry, I'll be nicer to sentient AIs, if the Fediverse ever gets any. :P
These are hardware kill switches.
Not a webcam cover. Not software disabled Wi-Fi. Kill switch.
Laptops should have these.

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