I was not done.

I had to go to the garage apartment, set up that router.

NOW I'm done. Like, if there are no unexpected downtimes, I don't expect to touch any of this shit for a long, long while.

😬 Well, I think I'm done moving all the devices in the house from the 192.168.xx.xx/24 space to the 10.xx.xx.xx space. Everything seems to be working.

I'm sure some devices will need a few changes. I couldn't access the garage apartment to set things over there; had to send instructions to Rich that, hopefully, he sees and sets soon. One or two devices need PINs I don't have.

*deep breath* By and large, though, it's good.

How to Speak Economist.

"The Economy is Doing Well" = The wealthy are spending borrowed money that they don't intend to repay and their corporations are spending rapidly to climb up the pyramid scheme. You still may get fired, but if you do, it's for "strategic growth purposes."

"We're in a recession" = The wealthy have decided to close this phase of the pyramid scheme and take in their profits. Someone else gets stuck with the bill for the money they borrowed. Their corporations are ordered to cut labor costs for a period of pure profit. You'll get fired and be expected to pick up a job for less money, because "in this economy" you can't expect to demand more.

I'm trying not to get hot about it. My thing will take two hours at the outside. I'll have time.

But I could be a quarter done already.

We're getting new siding. Planned for a while; begun this morning.

At some point today, I plan to change the IP addresses of our entire network, away from 192.168.xx.xx, to 10.xx.xx.xx.

The siding thing requires more interfacing than I anticipated. I'm too busy—trying to relay information and cut myself OUT as middleman—to do the thing I put on the calendar weeks ago.

request for resources 

My synagogue doesn't have any harassment or 'what to do if someone does bad shit' policies. Trying to correct that.

Does anyone have resources/examples/etc so I can put a good draft in front of the board?

For a long while, I wasn't even aware of an organization–loose or otherwise–called "2600". My first knowledge came when the greater Tennessee chapter came to Dragon*Con one year and hosted several fun panels.

That was in the far-flung past. I'm glad the org and the magazine are still out there.

Guess who picked up the latest issue of "2600 Magazine" today?

. . . Eh, close; Jinya picked one up for me.

It's an interesting, enjoyable read. I may get a subscription; they're cheap enough.

asking for help 

hey, lovelies

You know I hate being a colossal burden, but I'm quite tapped out and could really use a hand with groceries for the next coming weeks.

Anything you could kick into the bucket hat I'm always eternally thankful for

remember that cloudflare is a nightmare, and that using their services will get you hacked, as well as allow them to control the traffic you see. here's one of their more recent screwups to be disclosed, where they only did client side checks for their new e-mail routing service, so anyone could just route anyone else's domain on the service to their own e-mail accounts.
