I was wondering why my IPsec VPN was so slow between two endpoints running pfSense. Ended up changing the MSS cap from the default 1400 down to 1350 and now I’m getting 10x the bandwidth.
So great to see lots of hobby posts on Mastodon and not so many political posts. It’s a breath of fresh air.
It’s funny seeing all the new Mastodon apps, just like the first few years of Twitter.
Somehow I only learned of The Composable Architecture a couple of weeks ago. Not sure why I hadn’t seen anything about it before. Making my way through a tutorial and I’m generally impressed. I could see myself using it in a future project.
So the question is: what new way will elon find to ruin Twitter over the weekend?
The new AMD Epyc 9664 is a beast!
Today marks 20 years since I first publicly released XRG. It continues to be the first app I install on a new Mac, and I still enjoy improving it after all these years…
There’s a lot of things I’ll miss about California. This is not one of them…
Starting my day in the California desert where temps are in the 80s and ending it in the Rockies where temps are in the 40s. Can’t decide whether to wear shorts or pants.
Think I’ll go with shorts because this might be my last chance to wear them this season.
Here’s another one of my favorite shots from Yosemite a couple weeks ago. It’s a shot of Sentinel Bridge from the riverbed of the Merced. One reason I like it is because you can’t get this shot in the summer months when the river is full…you’d be in 3-4 feet of water.
Printed this one out to hang in the new house.
Me vs bears
Huh… Just felt an earthquake. Nothing major, just barely strong enough to make the house creek and the dogs start barking. Ended up being a 3.1 magnitude about 25 miles west of here.
I recorded this video almost 2 weeks ago, but have been too swamped to edit it. Here are the first two projects I worked on when getting here: setting up my desk for the next 5 weeks, and installing an Ecobee thermostat.
Crap…just broke a drill bit. Might be time to replace my set with some Milwaukees.
Driving from Michigan to California – Day 3
Here’s the last leg of the trip…with stops in Vegas and a gem I came across called Quail Creek Park.
Driving from Michigan to California – Day 2
On day 2, I drove from York, Nebraska to Selina, Utah. I-70 through the Rockies was amazing.
Driving from Michigan to California – Day 1
I’m spending the next several weeks in California. On Sunday I started driving out, and decided to VLOG about it. Here’s driving from Michigan to California, Day 1.
Going to start posting a few photos over on Vero.
Here’s a shot I took last month from a lookout off Highway 160 in Colorado. It was a stunning drive through the valley.
The new generics functionality in Swift 5.7 is going to save a lot of headaches. Something I spent a day working around just last month seems to just not be an issue at all in 5.7.
Zooming out a little bit…
Of course, it’s striking me that stopping the top-level Xcode project would instantly kill the VM. Might want to create an App to use this more regularly.
