If you wanted to, you can also install fail2ban and set it up for SSH. It'll block those persistent attackers and reduce your "I'm under attack constantly" stress.


and they have tongues too. Do think its so they can scream about what they've seen?

I ended up buying a relatively cheap rackmounted server and threw rust into it.

Del. R720's were my go-to, as they're pretty quiet and can take either 3.5" or 2.5" drives (depending on if you get the LFF or SFF models)

There will be no football matches for a stipulated time frame following the Queen's death as "as a mark of respect". Other sports like golf and rugby are fine and can play as normal. Yes we're being completely serious, why do you ask? 🤔


When you hit the Yubikey by accident while typing in a chat window and you end up sending the entire channel a "Yubisneeze."

Whitespashe Mastodon

This is a mastodon instance that allows users to share ideas and participate in discussions.

Whitespashe is named after the Admins' first joint coding project, which replaced spaces within a Word document with non-printable characters.
This would preserve readability, but would fool plagiarism detection sites such as Turnitin.
This site was named after this project, as it represents a desire to create whilst simultaneously sticking it to the Man (or in this case, the hellscape that is Twitter).
