(Both) IPv6 Privacy Extensions

Written by Ash on Filed in sysadmin Tags: tech networking ipv6 linux

One of the biggest benefits of IPv6 is that your computer’s address is a real, actual, global IP, rather than being a super-secret private IP that only your LAN knows about. I’m most excited for port forwarding to be a process that makes sense and the benefits to p2p gaming that will result. I am, however, saddened by the inevitable death of “hey join my minecraft server it’s”. (Note that you can still have a firewall in your home router, as is the norm with v4!) Anyway, I digress. There are Privacy Issues that arise from this.

h-card really needs to fix their whole gender thing

Written by Ash on Filed in general Tags: programming gender vent

I have a h-card on my aboutme page, since it’s a nice way to mark up the info I have anyway, without having to duplicate it all in the way some other structured data formats want. Also, if it can be slightly less friendly to Google, that’s a plus in my book. I s’pose the idea is that someone’s feedreader can have a little card with info about me next to my posts, which is cute, but I’m not actually aware of anything that does this. In any case, I was making some little tweaks to it and was tagging up my pronouns and gender, which, wow, what an experience!

Minecraft 1.19 has made me scared of caves

I went in to the update a bit later than most, only trying it out when my SMP of choice moved over. I had previously been playing in older 1.17 chunks, so I effectively got Caves and Cliffs at the same time too. I also, unlike most, went in completely blind. I knew that there was a difficult mob named the Warden, and something about frogs, and very little else.

Isolation Microblog 1

Written by Ash on Filed in general Tags: personal brief micro me links

It’s official - I’ve got 7 days of isolation lined up due to a family member contracting COVID-19. I’ve decided I’m going to make a blog post every day of it. Since I’ve spent most of today trying to get my affairs in order given this sudden news, I don’t have much, but I do have a thought that’s been bugging me: I absolutely told someone recently “Oh, Axel F! I bet you it’s the Crazy Frog version” when the song was in fact Popcorn. Which is. Embarrassing.
