Petition to #Linksys to better support #openwrt on their WRT routers: https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/2397#issuecomment-694768736
Did I buy WRT1200AC some time ago hoping for a good router with #OpenWrt support? Yes.
Was I frustrated by problems caused by unstable wi-fi driver? Yes :(
Is it a bit expensive? Yes :/
Does it have Atheros wi-fi chips, that have the best Linux drivers? Yes!
Does it come with OpenWrt based firmware preinstalled? F*ck YES!!! :D

Nice summary about *why* conspiracy theories are rising so fast recently.
Giving GPT-3 a Turing Test
Legal review in #openSUSE is a slow process (euphemism...) but sometimes you find interesting things.
Did you know that the #Qt base module ships code that can only be distributed in its original zip file (https://code.qt.io/cgit/qt/qtbase.git/tree/tests/auto/corelib/serialization/qxmlstream/XML-Test-Suite/xmlconf/xmltest/readme.html#n6 QTBUG-81503) or that #CSound releases contain code that cannot be distributed (https://github.com/csound/csound/issues/1148) ?

https://www.euromomo.eu/ just launched a new website.
My relative started to get into notion that COVID-19 is nothing more than a typical flu and that the panic is caused by measuring a thing, that wasn't measured so well before. So I started to look for data on mortality that is independent from death cause.
EUROMOMO has a delay of 3 weeks in getting full data, but it already shows a big unusual spike compared to previous years.
TIL: If you have full-disk encryption with a key embedded in initrd (https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Encrypted_root_file_system#Avoiding_to_type_the_passphrase_twice) you can easily use kexec (https://doc.opensuse.org/documentation/leap/tuning/html/book.sle.tuning/cha-tuning-kexec.html#cha-tuning-kexec-basic-usage) for fast and passwordless reboots.

It's for checking if NIP (tax id number) and NRB (bank account number) are registered.
Annoyed: yesterday it was giving me http 500 error.
Pleased: you can download a "flat file". A 7z packed json, that contains a list of `sha512(current date || NIP || NRB)`. I could use it with #bash and some basic commands.
- There's some weird shit going on with NRB masking.
- sha512 is not secure enough, so you must put it through 5000 rounds.
