Hi, I'm Remy.

I like computers, (which I write professionally), specialty , , history, good urban design, and laughing (sometimes hysterically) at things I don't like.

I dislike many things. Mainly cars, blockchain, billionaires and people's lacking sense of social responsibility (looking at you covid).

My politics can probably be described as green (pro nuclear) EU federalism.

I'm French but also Bolivian. Speak EN, ES (latam), FR, SK, CZ in that order

A story of pain and how can you expect average users to deal with this shit.

11pm and I can't internet anymore. A couple seconds later the network drops. I glance at the router, all LEDs are off. They turn back on momentarily, blink for a while, then off again. Still no network. FUCK.

The idiot must've tried to upgrade itself, or worse. Point is there's no way back, i'm forced to reset.

Reset. Go over setup wizard, but no internet. I remember my ISP for whatever reason fingerprints devices connected to the WAN by MAC addr. The router was running with a spoofed MAC from the shitbox they gave me. FUCK 2.0.

Get the other shitbox, pray i didn't bin the power supply, power it up, plug it in, copy MAC, plug the first shitbox back in, change MAC, reboot.

At last, internet.

The cherry on top of the cake: "Would you like to sign up to our online service to control your router remotely?" - I cringe and go to sleep

Tesla, Starlink, Twitter… data from cars, satellites/Internet connectivity, news/sentiment/conversations including direct messages… all in the hands of one person.

Nothing to worry about.

Dear New Followers: over the next few days I will boost each and every one of your #introduction posts, if you do post them and pin them to your profile.

Introduction posts are important on fedi. Please also consider setting your profile pics!

This is my way of supporting good practices on one hand, and giving some much-needed visibility to new fedifriends who are just now joining.

I started using Orgpad - a mind-map app written in
- to learn . It's a WIP, but I can already reap the benefits of looking back at it after a couple days and pick up where I left off much more easily than with handwritten notes.
