I believe you can install OpenWrt on the ER and most APs if you want to go that route to salvage the investment in hardware.

For German people always joke that "umfahren" can mean "drive around" (to avoid collision) but also "to run over".

Who doesn't? I've lived 20 years in Britain and can't remember ever hearing it other than "sivv".

I don't think there are any issues for me.
I use a mobile app almost exclusively so that should hide the change, right?

If you are concerned with #zoom''s acquisition of #keybase, knowing zooms bad track of dealing with privacy, you have good reasons to do.

If you choose to delete your keybase, account and you’ve got some #stellar coins left inside that you prefer to gift away instead of deleting or knowing it will be for zooms profit, know that we do have a stellar address you can donate to.

I'm going to manufacture a batch of entropy source boards [1] built on the idea of a noisy diode [2].

If you're up for one or just curious about it, please let me know.

Note that they will cost you at least four times the Infinite Noise TRNG [3] and have less features so you should consider if that's a better choice.

For completeness, the toot where I learned this was from @codingquark :
mathstodon.xyz/@codingquark/10

Shame about the limited support but that's broadcom, I guess.

@ln4711
I also heard somewhere that you can make away with their firmware and install OpenWrt (or was it some other OSS router OS?) on the APs directly.

@ln4711
Coming back to mongo db issue: Yes, that seems to be a dubious choice. At least in the past that caused many issues (corrupted DB and the pains trying to repair it).
If you are not too happy to have that running, beware that the controller app doesn't actually have be running all the time. You could just fire it up occasionally to update firmware if needed, look at things or adopt new hardware.

@ln4711
Your woes are definitely worse than mine ever were.

I have only ever used the mobile app (Android though) to look at statuses. I never even thought you could configure things without the unifi app.

@ln4711
The first instance I had running was actually on a raspberry pi (presumably respbian?).
I don't recall setup issues there but it just all broke one day (as in the sd card was corrupted in parts, including the mongo db). Luckily I had a fairly recent backup and just gave up on the raspi going for the much safer main server (mirrored disk, daily backups, etc.).

@ln4711
I use it with ubuntu on our normal home server and all I remember was that it was one royal pain in the behind to get working. For ubuntu they make you install some exotic repo to get the outdated mongo version they can use. I spend hours to make that work IIRC. I don't remember the details - the brain is good at shutting out that sort of traumatic experience.

@codingquark
Faster than what?

I never knew you could get OpenWRT onto those.
Does that mean this acts as a full router for all connected WiFi devices?
