Basically the same also applies for Friendica and Mastodon:

Your name in diaspora\*


It occurred to me that most of the people who have come to diaspora\* from G+ are using their real names.

Some of you might not know that you don't have to use your real name in diaspora*. You can call yourself anything you want to. Indeed, you can be whoever you want in diaspora*. There's no need to reveal anything about yourself that you don't want to.

If you want to be a witty gecko or a highly intelligent aspidistra, you can!

Of course, if you want to 'be' yourself, and use your real name, that's fine too. But you're not restricted in that way.

Have fun!

IPv6 Traffic


I've been running IPv6 for quite some time now. Maybe a decade or so.
In the beginning I was using an IPv6 tunnel provided by SiXXs, but for some years now I have a native IPv6 /48 subnet.
Some years ago Deutsche Telekom activated #IPv6 for their DSL customers. This boosted IPv6 traffic in Germany. But there is room for improvement as shown in this network graph to my webserver:

Seems as if the disk needs to be exchanged:

it suddenly occurs to me that the push to abandon the 3.5mm audio jack could, in part, be an effort to close the analog hole.
Right now, you can take any device with a headphone jack, plug it into a laptop with a microphone jack via a plug-to-plug audio cable, and obtain a decent-quality DRM-free reproduction no matter how encumbered the source file or player happens to be.
