Awesome documentary/business story - how starting with a good idea, working on it and surrounding yourself with the right people can grow to a full fledged business (Prusa 3D printers): https://youtu.be/xX3pDDi9PeU
Does anyone have a simple guide on how to follow some folks on https://people.kernel.org/ on Mastodon? Is it even supported?
The downside of this approach that you a) create a lot of interfaces on the server (one per connected device) and b) waste half of the IPs on server point-to-point addresses. That said, even a measly /24 is more than enough for me.
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:

"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.

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