The ONT's Upon Us

Dec.jpg

Like it or not, the holidays are upon us. The weather is colder, the lights are brighter and Hans Gruber is falling off the Nakatomi Tower. The season's upon us.

Advent


My Die Hard advent calendar. Every day when you pull a tab, Hans Gruber falls a little further down the Nakatomi Tower.

I don't have one of those, but my wife bought a cheese advent calendar, and it is fantastic. Every day, a new kind of cheese. So Gouda!


Journalism Today


I'm so glad we have these hardened professionals to look into the issues that threaten the Republic.

NFL

I know a lot of y'all have cooled on the NFL, but we are in the last stretch to the playoffs, and there is one story around the league that's amazing. Well, two, counting the mighty Baltimore Ravens, but they represent excellence and achievement, I want to focus on the other end of the spectrum.

The NFC Least

NOBODY wants to win this division. The Giants and the Redskins suck, and the Cowboys and Eagles are working hard to play up to their standards. This means there are a couple of wild scenarios that are still possible.

Three crazy NFC East playoff scenarios that could still happen

I can't decide which I would prefer. Redskins in the playoffs? That would be wild, but I think I like the idea of the Cowboys getting in at 6-10....and then making a run to the NFC championship game. That would probably force Jerry Jones to extend Jason Garrett's contract, and wouldn't that be a hell of a thing? Garrett was the Ravens' first choice for coach in 2008, but he decided to remain in Dallas. Talk about dodging a bullet!


Oh Come All Ye Faithless


Growing number of 'exvangelicals' and nonreligious millennials will have dire political consequences


This actually highlights something I've been wondering about lately: Is a Western style democratic republic possible without a population that shares general “Judeo-Christian” values? I'm starting to believe that it is not. Yes, Rome had a republic for 500 years, but it wasn't really anything like what we have in the West other than in the general form of the government. Nobody else in history has done it, and as we in the West become more and more secular, we seem to be reverting to the human norm. Next stop, nobles and serfs, served with a hot piping cup of nasty, brutish and short.


Hard Read

Last night I posted a link to an article by Bobby Jenks, ex-MLB reliever, that detailed his incredible journey into addiction following an injury. If you missed it, I recommend you go back and read it, it's good. From the same site, here's one by Rich Hill that will leave you in tears.

I Want to Talk About My Son Brooks


In it Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill recounts the story of what happened following the birth of his second child, Brooks, who was born with a terminal illness.

Speaking Of Babies

We need more of them. Not enough children being born in US to replace population

Maybe we should follow the lead of Europe: European nations offer incentives to have kids I don't really like the method they're using in the article, way too government-centric, but it's something to consider. Their might be a way to get the same results without the government just paying for it all, off the top of my head I'm thinking maybe something that encourages one parent to stay home with the kids while the other can support them with a full time job. I'd have to think on what form such a policy could take, however, I really have no idea.

Musical Interlude

Good News

Trump releases rule forcing hospitals and insurers to disclose negotiated rates or face fines

If you want to know how to reform health care to bring down costs, this is where you start, right here, with absolute price transparency. There's no reason that people can't shop for health care like they do anything else. This is a good start, but it doesn't go nearly far enough. Baby steps.


Progressives Gonna Progressive

Michael Bloomberg: Tax the Poor for Their Own Good

Larry Elder on the clip I posted last week


This Is Why Your Holiday Travel Is Awful

This is a long article (10,000 words, almost as long as a joke I once posted) tracing the history of New York's failure to upgrade or replace Penn Station. Throughout it, the author simultaneously bemoans the inability of government to DO BIG THINGS for THE BENEFIT OF EVERYONE (plenty of kudos for Woodrow Wilson and the idea that “smart people” should run everything) while stating the necessity of maintaining the “progressive” idea that government has to “protect” every little person and interest group against EVIL BIG BUSINESS, RICH PEOPLE, AND (oddly enough)GOVERNMENT. Logically it's a dog's breakfast, but the history is good and you'll be rolling your eyes at the ineptitude of city hall by the end. Worth a read if you've got the time.

37 European nations offer incentives to have kids

France does it correctly - the amount of money the mother gets for maternity pay is a function of the mother's earnings. Professional women get more maternity pay than welfare recipients do.

Unsolicited advice: Sis-in-law had both knees done. The nurse: "Day ten after surgery. Not Day 9, not Day 11. Day ten. For some reason, that's almost precisely when everything 'knits' together. Every patient I've seen. And it hurts. Have the pain meds ready for day ten."

There is going to be time between hospital and going home. Would you be able to surprise her in that interim by decorating wherever she is going to be spending most of her time, whether it's your bedroom or elsewhere in the house? I'm not sure where you live, but if you need a heater there are ones that also serve as fake fireplaces.

99 Tonight's ONT brought to you by police brutality

It's true. A few years ago, a cop was shot near my house (fortunately not seriously), and the cops blocked off the main road in town to investigate, forcing all the traffic down a side street to a different road. Took me about forty minutes extra to get to work.

A friend of mine, who is a gorgeous blond and lives near me, was just waved through by the cops onto the otherwise blocked road.

I got the impression that this a fairly standard interaction with the police for her.

106 Time for the NFL to adopt a college rule. NCAA rules dictate that a team must have 6 victories to become eligible to appear in a bowl game, otherwise bowls would choose big name schools with inferior records to participate. I propose that an NFL team must win at least 8 games to become "playoff eligible." If a division winner doesn't win 8 games, another team from the conference that does have 8 wins will take their place.

Was it me? Depending on what mood you catch me in, I sometimes argue for and against.

So again I'll do both. As a religion, "Judaeo Christian" makes no sense. As a civilisation I'd say it makes all the sense.

Western Christians have made a serious attempt to understand Judaism; and Western Jews have taken Christianity seriously as well.

We don't have to accept each others' faith in order to work out how to live together. And "living together" is what civilisation means.

Was there a year ago, and in earlier years just after Christmas, loved it. Of course New Year's is the biggie for them, so there's an easy "add-on" of a borrowed/oddly adopted furrin' thing like Christmas.

The guest ones are so ridiculous I would look at them and say to the guy next to me 'I thought this was a high class place?'

180 some time ago a commenter objected to adding the
"judeo" in jude-christian. i have some commiseration and not. but it got
me to thinking what is missing in these broad, philosophical
generalities about our country is the greco-roman (no wrestling
juokes, please) hellenic-latin root for much of our civic institutions.
so, while i've never seen it before, perhaps we should be calling it
our judaeo-christian-hellenic-latin values.

------------------------

Those little bitty guest salt n'peppers are designed for really fancy dinner parties where each guest gets their own salt n'pepper shaker at their place.

I'm guessing there are the larger salt n'peppers that are part of the day to daily service, and the little bitty ones get brought out for extra guests. The useless reporters who spent actual time on this couldn't be bothered to examine whether there were multiple little bittys at each place setting.

My family always had enormous Christmases. But since my husband died, I dread it. I fake it with my family, but it's exhausting.

I put the tree up by myself. My kids are married with children and don't live nearby, so I don't ask them for help. If I didn't have to put the tree up it would be okay. We have Christmas at my kids houses now. But I take all the women in my family to the Nutcracker every year, and they stay at my house. They would be sad if I didn't have a tree. Ugh.

Last year, the stepson asked for socks for his wife at Thanksgiving. Threw things off but I got them done. This year,my husband asked for a cap for his nephew. And that meant I needed to do something quick for his wife. And the watchcap is 1by 1 rib on #0 needles. Knitters will recognize how insane this is.

Hat and shawlette are done for them. I should finish the socks for my stepson this weekend. Still need to knit socks for her and a pair for the baby. I call it "death march knitting"

Thursday was horrid (spent the day trying to translate what the badly worded trouble-tickets even meant) but today I figured out both of those bugs.

And deployed four fixes: two for earlier bugs, one to fix a Thursday bug (the other one was the client being silly), and one to fix something else reported this evening.

Also explained, for a different client, why the PDF looks bad when said PDF includes a string of text of 4000 characters. I did not employ the word 'barrel' in that explanation.

Yeah it kinda went to shit after my mom died. She loved christmas. My father never really kept up with it after that, well not the decorating part anyway. Mom was a Martha Stewart type. Actually, martha couldn't lick her shoes. Amazing the things she could put together. She had extreme arts and crafts talent. She made everything and anything christmas. Wreaths, tree ornaments, christmas style stuffed animals, the works. I have all the stuff now, so I keep it alive for her. She had at least a dozen tubs of supplies on hand at any given time. My grandmother used to have a christmas eve feast you wouldn't believe, and that eventually ended. The women always seem to be the glue, when they go its never the same.

I keep it alive for them, and for me seeing I love the holidays. I missed out on a lot of stuff over the years because of the music thing. Family get togethers, weddings, and some holiday parties, etc. I even missed the damn Vegas MoMee a couple years back because of the music thing, because of a supposed tour of europe that I was prepping for that ended up not happening anyway. I always thought of christmas as a magical time. I pulled back from music the last 2 years and I got to somewhat rediscover the holidays. Even if I was by myself, I think I would be ok with me and a tree. In the end I keep it alive for those that are gone.

Prolly won't make it this weekend, but this is a movie I will happily pay to see, and drink a Fat Tire, and luxuriate in the reality that Clint Eastwood is the biggest, baddest muthafucka EVER! in Hollywood. Dear Lord in Heaven he is a genuine national treasure.

439 Speaking of movies, a woman dragged me to Knives Out. It sucks. Not just because it's directed by the waste of spermatozoa that is Rian Johnson and there's political BS in there, because they took what could have been a very interesting plot arc and ruined it.

473 It was ATampersandT's choice to accept Adam Schiff's demand to see Devin Nunes and reporter John Solomon's phone records.

Think about that for a while. A corporation helping one side spy on the other party's members, and their reporters.

They could have at least faked it for a while. But no, Democrat Schiff asks, and the Corporate Whore jumps.

And ATampersandT wireless is owned by ATampersandT Corporate, that also has owned CNN since 2018.

I hope that didn't come across as glib or overly terse. It's a point of minor contention - most authorities say it's something that will be done in the Messianic era and should not be rushed, with some minorities trying to kick it off right now. Most Jews think that attitude is precipitous and presumptive. So - and this is just my understanding - the consensus is "when it's time, you'll know it".

539 It is going to be the worst Christmas this year.

Sadder than 1862 when Lincoln visited Union soldiers wounded in the Civil War.

Sadder than 1914 with the troops in the trenches of WWI.

Sadder than 1941 after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor.

Sadder than 1944 with our troops in the battle of Bastogne.

Sadder than 1951 with our troops in Korea.

Sadder than 1968 with our troops in Vietnam.

Sadder than all of that + Panama, Grenada, Desert Storm, OIF I, II Afgan....which we are still in all because...

THE F**KING DEMOCRAT'S want to impeach a sitting President cuz THEY LOST and have NOTHING ELSE BUT THIS to try and salvage what they are as a party?



Sadder......for the USA....pathetic....for the USA....below us as a country and rage at this point should be forthcoming and volcanic.

Drain the swamp? Hell, put the torch to it more likely.

Clowns...sad clowns chest thumping impotence....yet we the people are tax paying for this s''t show.

more wine and bed to sleep in nothingness lest I give my bad angels more wing......

553 Hey, pretty sure alcoholism is
demonic possession. I can go days without it, but then it
whispers...You had a hard week, you had to deal with those people, come
on, it feels great! Go ahead, no one will ever know!
It always feels good when you are sloshing it down,
always. It's only the next morning when you think, "Ow, everything
hurts, that was a bad idea." But then the night comes, and you think,
"I deserve this," which is the demon saying I need this from you.

When
you refrain, it feels great that night, and the next morning. But then
the demon whispers, Oh, come on, you can quit any time you want to,
just indulge me this one time!
The screaming never stops.

568 When you consider that the Jews cannot really practice their religion, what with not having a Temple for almost 2,000 years

The Jews will tell you that they worshipped G-d for centuries before they built a Temple. The whole Torah is set before and immediately after Moses' death, which death occurred on the wrong side of the Jordan.

The Temple was important but G-d is more important.

Success! Me being the lunatic I am, I've been playing around with getting dynamic routing working on my little network. The other day, I stumbled across a little Ubiquit EdgeRouter box. It's a little box that's a pretty full featured router. It has a fiber SFP interface and I'm gonna use that when I build the new house.

Anyway, I was just playing with it. The idea with real routers is to set up dynamic routing. Your consumer grade wireless routers aren't really "real routers". Just very simple little devices to interface to an ISP connection.

I've got one of those, a Linksys WRT 3200. You can run custom firmware which opens you up to use real router features. It's basically a Linux system specialized for routing.

So, I was playing with getting the Linksys running OpenWRT and the new Edge box talking properly via dynamic routing.

It's one hell of a complicated thing. But I finally got it working. I was stumped, and it turned out to be some simple little minor timer configuration that has to be the same on all routers on a given interface.

LadyL, get the tree and the tree skirt up, put the decorations on a table, bring the ladies in early for brunch and have them decorate it for you.

In a nutshell, dynamic routing allows to add and subtract subnets from the whole network. The routers then, via talking to each other, then become aware of such changes and know how to forward packets to get from point A to B on the network.

Without it, when you make such a change, you'd have to manually figure out the paths and manually change the routing tables.

With dynamic, it happens automatically.

The reason, I believe, people get "worn down" is they know in their
hearts we are going to have to kill a whole bunch of these people. THEY
WILL NEVER LEAVE US ALONE. They want the war, we don't but that doesn't
mean we can escape it. It is inevitable.

I disagree. I'm not in the least "worn down" by any of this bullshit. Won't have to kill anyone. Dumbfucks will disperse and go home when their funding dries up and they get enough stitches.

Proper sized Yeti or Arctic type cooler.

Purpose?

You meet up with Morons n' Ettes, you all put your cel-phones into the "vault" to rest, while you make free with your conversations.

Still got a cel phone in the open? Then conversation stops.

This is how you run a remote rural Mo Meet and conform to OpSec requirements.

787 >> Lemme know if you want the dhcpv6-pd sections outta my config (email in nick).

Thanks. I've got that figured out. I think. My main Linkys router on my home network, running OpenWRT is the one connected to the cable modem. By default it was just requesting a /64 prefix, and thus could just serve one subnet on the LAN side.

I changed it to request a /60, and I got it (I think they'll give you up to a /56, but all I needed was 4 bits, 16 subnets gracious plenty).

The new EdgeRouter is just plugged into the main switch on the LAN segment, and I'm just playing with it, creating dummy subnets on it.

I got dhcp-pd set up on it, and working. It requests a /64 from the Linksys, and gets one from the pool of 16.

It took me a while to get that set up right, but I got it.

I haven't yet looked at how much routing info gets exchanged based on that yet. That's what I'll be doing when I get the IPv6 OSPF set up.

An interesting buncha information: I have a coworker who has family on the other side of the border, and she mentioned that there is a big market in the Mexican border towns among the desperately poor to sell infants' blood, for a fair price a draining (for Mexico), for some undisclosed use. She doubts it is good for the kids and probably debilitating for them, but money is money for utterly broke parents.

I doubt it is for research, because you don't need a lot of blood for research, and researchers actually want controlled sources for the bio stuff they are using. It is that whole FDA and Ethics element I suppose.

I do know the first stem cell type therapy was giving infant blood to terminal cancer patients to see if it did them any good (and it might have but they all died from the terminal cancer anyways) but I could see the ultra rich who wanted to stay young taking infant blood infusions. Illegal or unethical, the chance that it might make you live longer would be a powerful draw.

However, I know from a friend of the family who had cutting edge stem cell therapy on his knees, that it was strongly suggested not to get fetal or infant stem cells since those therapies were strongly correlated with getting cancers, often multiple unrelated cancers in various organs. Using cultured stem cells from your own skin was considered far safer.

I would let pass that yet another powerful and rich lefty has come down with a nasty cancer as coincidence, but those previous ideas keep me looking at it oddly. Nothing more than causality, but it makes me go "hmmm"

That might be one of the Holy Grail P-71 'Vics.

A "Chief's Special".

Real order option on those. The front cabin was pretty much Luxury 'Vic, with split bench seat, vs. upholstered buckets on the "issue" 'Vic.

Front seats were full power options, HVAC was dual zone digital, front doors were power windows and locks.

Rear cabin? Fiberglass rear puke receptacle, no window cranks, and inoperative door release handles. Heavy duty rubber floor mats.

And a factory cage to keep the two cabins separated and apart.

Exterior? Every paint option as that year's production Crown Vic, but with the 17" wheels, you still got the "dog dish" hubcaps and black painted steel rollers.

The drive train though was straight up P-71. Power programming in the CPU, boosted alternator, massive cooling and many other features, besides.

This car is what is known as a "sleeper".

Which status is now mine to attain.

Hasta la nite nite, Horde!

I'm not sure but I think Spectrum was an invention of Charter. I've had it for years and it was just Charter, then the Spectrum name started appearing, like Charter Spectrum blah-blah, and now they just call themselves Spectrum.

There's something wrong with that particular machine's network. I'd guess the card.

If the ethernet controller is built in on the mo/bo, then you can't just swap it out, but if you got a spare slot you could add an el-cheapo gigabit ethernet card.

It could be some of the hardware is getting flaky and can't handle the higher data rates. There's these various auto-negotiation link speed protocols, where both ends try to agree on the highest mutually supported speed.

The card could be doing that, setting it to gigabit or 100Mbps, then failing because of the problem.

Then you set the card to 10Mbps, and it can handle that without screwing up.

It could also be a bad cable or jack in the link between the card and the switch/router port, too, which would cause the same behavior.

812 My main Linkys router on my home network, running OpenWRT is the one connected to the cable modem. By default it was just requesting a /64 prefix, and thus could just serve one subnet on the LAN side.

I would definitely use the EdgeRouter as the WAN interface, once you have the v6 firewall set up. Hope this formats OK:

ipv6-name WANv6_IN {
default-action drop
description "WAN inbound traffic forwarded to LAN"
rule 10 {
action accept
description "Allow established/related sessions"
state {
established enable
related enable
}
}
rule 20 {
action drop
description "Drop invalid state"
state {
invalid enable
}
}
rule 30 {
action accept
description "Allow IPv6 icmp"
protocol ipv6-icmp
}
}

I'm planning on using the EdgeRouter as the main WAN facing router in the new house. I'll use the SFP port for a fiber link to the old house place (via an undeground fiber optic line -- it will be a maybe 500 yards or so). Lots of stuff there with the folks I don't want to move.

Now, the Edgerouter doesn't have a wifi access point built in, so I'll use something else for that. Maybe a dedicated wireless acccess point -- Ubiquiti makes some of those that are pretty sophisticated.

As it is now, I'm just playing, trying to learn what I'm doing.

What I love about this Edgerouter is how damned configurable it is. It has 5 RJ-45 gigabit ports plus an SFP port.

You can logically configure those in any way you like. It has a virtual switch (only one with this class, you can't create more than one virtual switch), to which you can assign any number of ports.

And it can do VLANs as well. I don't need that yet. My main switch here, a Lingkys LGS308 will do VLANs as well, and I haven't played with that yet.

Anyway, when I get everything built and set up, one port of the Edge will be the WAN from the cable modem, the SFP will do the fiber link, and the other ports will connect everything else, with the Edge routing between them all.

Another bit of complexity with the Edge as a WAN interface is you have to set up IP4 masquerading manually. Much more configurable that way of course, but more learning curve for me.

OpenWRT exposes that as well, but out of the box, the default configuration is set up for you.

Edge's OS has some "wizards" that can do that, but only for some standard scenarios.

Easily. As it is, the wireless wlans are bridged to the LAN and it's automatically an access point. You just have to make sure the WAN side, DHCP and DNS and all that is turned off or otherwise configured not to collide with what you're using for the WAN connection.

With OpenWRT you have a lot of options that the stock firmware might not expose.

829 here is how you solve the kid problem -- have a percentage of your SSI tax go directly to your parents. split it between the two parents and pro-rate it so deadbeats don't get anything. Parents on the dole get half or so.

1. It gives people an incentive to have kids, since 20 years later that kid is cash money.

2. It gives parents incentive to take care of their kids since Doctors make more than crack whores.

3. It gives fathers an incentive to take care of their kids and for parents to stay together since that is good for the kid, and necessary for it to pay off.

One of the neat thing about OpenWRT is how it exposes a lot of details about the underlying router hardware that the stock firmware doesn't.

This is a Linksys WRT 3200ACM. 500MB RAM, 500MB flash, twin-core ARM CPU.

Now, the ethernet ports, including the WAN port, are all one internal physical switch. VLANs are used to separate them. THe stock firmware exposes none of that, but you can change that with OpenWRT.

By screwing around the VLANs, you can make a stock router a 2-WAN port configuration and all that if you wanted.

It's running DNSMasq, a lightweight DNS server too, and I've got a full featured DNS server for the network. Full name resolution, IP4 and 6.
