Kitchen (done): upload for requests
  • Neatly done, would recommend to have some more colour put into the kitchen though, by either more plants or some decor that isn't black. Just my two cents though, creates a warmer feeling.

  • Ah thank you so much! This is indeed very handy πŸ™Œ

  • Games on Whales - Stream multiple desktops and games from a single host
  • Am not sure I understand the use case of this properly, could you elaborate on a typical use case where this could be used?

  • Thinking about getting into OSRS again..
  • Sorry for the week late reply...

    Its been really quite refreshing to jump back into this actually! Still enjoying it :) I started of using the new HDOS client, which was quite nice, but then tried Runelite and have stayed with that, altough with some nice tweaks here and there that I gathered from some content creators (Settled).

    Considering it had been so many years since I last played, I started ofc from scratch following the basic adventure path which got me going good. Completed that the other day, so now looking to start on some free-to-play missions. I fee like if I can manage to complete at least a good amount of them and still enjoy OSRS, then I will try out the membership!

  • Do you poweroff your server during night / unused times?
  • Yeah I would use that when I am on my phone too, but for web i much prefer Photon :)

  • Do you poweroff your server during night / unused times?
  • Posted using Photon frontend. Doesn't give that choice, you just include what you want in the post normally..

  • Do you poweroff your server during night / unused times?
  • Ignore the URL; I wasn't allowed to post without a link?? kept getting invalid URL, without anything in the field. Not sure why..?

  • Do you poweroff your server during night / unused times?

    I believe this is a slightly controversial topic, at least from what I have gathered so far. Some say its best to leave the server on to spare the life time of the spinning rust. Other seem to prefer to save power and boot the server off each night. So wanted to chip in and hear what folks here do and why do what you do.

    Bonus question; Do you guys have a UPS? Is it a must have for a homelab, or does it just depend on the usecase?

  • Aeropress has easily become my favourite way to brew coffee β˜•
  • That is indeed a drawback this has. On the other hand I don't think a larger aeropress would make much sense either. This size is just perfect, but definitely for one cup.

  • What's the best way to perserve bread?
  • I usually just let the whole thing thaw and then use it as normal bread.. Probably not a good habit. I'll try slicing up front instead πŸ‘

  • What's the best way to perserve bread?
  • Do you always slice the bread before you freeze a bread? I usually freeze the whole or half the bread. Just wondering if there is another reason for freezing it that way other than being able to take out the exact amount of slices you want.

  • What's the best way to perserve bread?

    What's the general consensus on storing bread? In a bread box? In the fridge? In a drawer? Room temp? Looking for ways to increase the number of days a bread can last for both store bought and homemade bread 🍞

    Bamboo plant growing too tall?
  • Thanks for your relpy and link. I just use normal tap water, but make sure to change it every now and then :)

  • Bamboo plant growing too tall?
  • Thank you very much πŸ™Œ

  • Bamboo plant growing too tall?
  • Indeed bought plant at IKEA, bottle is just a random green glassed bottle we got from Uni.

  • Bamboo plant growing too tall?

    Hiya, have got these very simple bamboo plants in my bathrooms as they really like it there. However this one is now well over 2 years old and clearly has grown a lot. How can I safely trim the plant and is it possible to keep the leftover part in a glass of water to make it grow roots? I don't have much experience with these types of plants. Any suggestions are appreciated! πŸ™Œ

    Thinking about getting into OSRS again..

    Hi there,

    I've used to play OSRS many many years ago and enjoyed it at the time. I never maxed an account nor did I get too familiar with the whole world, as I only played free to play version. However, ever now and again I think about start playing again but I can't really make it stick.. As in, I keep loosing interest after a short while. Anyway, I wanted to ask for some recommendations for what could keep me playing..

    I don't remember any of my accounts, so I'll start fresh. Should I pay for membership straight of the bat? Or should I try to complete all free to play quests first? Is there anything in particular that keeps you coming back to OSRS that you would share?

    Appreciate any tips!

    Networking Dilemma

    Hi there good folk,

    The new place i am moving into has the internet come into the house on the other side of where I am planning to have my office + my NAS(which needs ethernet). I much prefer having my stuff connected through ethernet, but not sure what do now, as I cant really run cables across the house. Am also renting the place so cant drill holes in walls etc.. As far as I know, there are two ways for me to get ethernet in my office:

    1. COAX to POE: The place does not have ethernet ports in the walls either, but it does have some wallmounted coax sockets. Is it worth looking into coax to poe adapters for either end of the sockets? Not sure how much of a fan I am of this due to the amount of cables this ends up being.

    2. The other way would be to have a WiFi-extender in my office, but i guess this will sacrafice some more speed than the other solution(?). This way I would have a small switch connected to the extender which will get me some more ports too.

    I am planning on buying into the Unifi prodcuts, specifically the Unifi Express device as a router. While expensive, I love the polish and feature set and control it brings. What other Unifi devices should I get into, considering probably wont be able to use PoE?

    Lemmy know your thoughts, opinions and the rest - am open for all sorts of solutions!

    Am already a Proton Unlimited Subscriber, why am I seeing upgrade "ads"....?

    Honestly... this isnt the first time this has happened either. Been a paying customer for a long time now, and occasionally I get these upgrade buttons, which I am hoping are just bugs, as otherwise it would be very weird as I cannot upgrade to anything higher than Unlimited.

    Issue with MX Master 3 on Linux

    Hiya, got a very small, but annoying issue with this mouse. Every time I put the computer to sleep, and wake it up again the scrollwheel will barely scroll on websites and applications. To fix this i just have to turn the mouse on and off again, but am still wondering what causes this to be an issue or if there are any known fixes for this?

    Appriciate any suggestions!

    Tailscale running at full force during the night?

    I keep having my phone completely drained of battery over night, and im not sure why.. Each night the phone will easy chew through 30-40% battery. Only thing that helps is putting it in battery saving mode. But feels like a temporary solution.

    The second most used app is at 7% percent usage.

    Am running GrapheneOS, anyone else struggling with this?

    Have you upgraded to WiFi 6 - 802.11.ax?

    Am about to move houses and new place will have 1000/1000 speeds. Wondering if I should get a Wifi 6 router or not, is it worth the upgrade? Can Wifi 5 and 6 equipment be combined? Or will it then all be 'downgraded' to Wifi 5?

    Usecase: At home - with 8 or so devices.

    Anyway, let me know your experiences with WiFi 6 and wether I should aim to get it.

    Why does this TechRadar link come with a reference to some weird russian website?

    Disclaimer; I'm not looking for a VPN service, I already have one. I know TechRadar is not a great source too. I am simply doing research around VPNs in general.

    I am just wondering why DDG is suggesting this link over a link without a reference? Is this "the blame" of DDG or Techradar? Trying to understand why this is the link being served over others. Appriciate any suggestions.

    thehackernews.com TP-Link Gaming Router Vulnerability Exposes Users to Remote Code Attacks

    A critical vulnerability (CVE-2024-5035) has been disclosed in the TP-Link Archer C5400X gaming router, allowing remote code execution.

    TP-Link Gaming Router Vulnerability Exposes Users to Remote Code Attacks

    The Article

    A maximum-severity security flaw has been disclosed in the TP-Link Archer C5400X gaming router that could lead to remote code execution on susceptible devices by sending specially crafted requests. The vulnerability, tracked as CVE-2024-5035, carries a CVSS score of 10.0. It impacts all versions of the router firmware including and prior to 1_1.1.6. It has been patched in version 1_1.1.7 released on May 24, 2024.

    "By successfully exploiting this flaw, remote unauthenticated attackers can gain arbitrary command execution on the device with elevated privileges," German cybersecurity firm ONEKEY said in a report published Monday. The issue is rooted in a binary related to radio frequency testing "rftest" that's launched on startup and exposes a network listener on TCP ports 8888, 8889, and 8890, thus allowing a remote unauthenticated attacker to achieve code execution. While the network service is designed to only accept commands that start with "wl" or "nvram get," ONEKEY found that the restriction could be trivially bypassed by injecting a command after shell meta-characters like ; , & , or, | (e.g., "wl;id;"). Cybersecurity

    TP-Link's implemented fix in version 1_1.1.7 Build 20240510 addresses the vulnerability by discarding any command containing these special characters. "It seems the need to provide a wireless device configuration API at TP-Link had to be answered either fast or cheap, which ended up with them exposing a supposedly limited shell over the network that clients within the router could use as a way to configure wireless devices," ONEKEY said.

    The disclosure arrives weeks after security flaws were also revealed by the company in Delta Electronics DVW W02W2 industrial Ethernet routers (CVE-2024-3871) and Ligowave networking gear (CVE-2024-4999) that could allow remote attackers to gain remote command execution with elevated privileges. It's worth noting that these flaws remain unpatched due to the devices being no longer actively maintained, making it imperative that users take adequate steps to limit exposure of administration interfaces to reduce the potential for exploitation.

    Networking Gear Recommendations? (starting from scratch)

    Hi, I hope its appropriate to ask this here, considering this is the most active community closest to this topic (Networking). I am moving places shortly and will need to start from scratch will all networking equipment. Including router and wifi-extenders. Am wondering what the general consencus is around networking gear, what brands are good and homelab friendly? I've heard great things about Ubiquity, but know nothing about their products. I do wish to buy a mesh system, as I do have 2 floors and concrete walls in the new place. I am looking for something easy to maintain, yet customizable for when I get more comfortable with playing around with networking equipment.

    I have some experience with TP-link + decos, but really dont like their app and default settings. Blocks mullvad.net by default for instance...

    If it matters, there will only be 2 people connected normally ~ approx 8 devices or so in total.

    • 2 phones,
    • 2 laptops (wired if possible)
    • 1 desktop comupter (wired)
    • server (wired)
    • Nvdia shield (wired)
    • RaspberriPi (wired)

    Am also aiming to buy a 1000/1000 Mbps connection :)

    Lemmy know what you would recommend in this scenario, and please feel free to ask about further details if I have missed anything, Thanks as always!

    Privacy focused Podcast recommendations?

    After the podcast show The Privacy, Security, & OSINT Show stopped putting out episodes, I've been on the lookout for other ones. Just stumbled upon The Lockdown (Practical Privacy & Security) and it seems rather good based on the first episode I listened to so thought i'd share it. But am still looking for more as I am a big podcast listener, so please do recommend any privacy focused podcasts πŸ•΅οΈ
