whee i got a thonkpad!

December 25, 2020 — owen

a refurbished thinkpad t420 becuase fuck capitalism :3

its quite nice, the keyboard is lovely, although i keep nudging the trackpoint when typing. i suppose i could get used to that

there appears to be something under the 3 key, and it feels a bit stiffer than the other ones so i will probably clean it later

overall a much-needed upgrade over my previous laptop (a old chromebook i got for free) lol

wireguard is cool

December 07, 2020 — owen

its a little confusing at first but its quite intuitive once you wrap your head around it.

i would join tildenet, but it seems our addressing scheme is incompatable lol

i setup a wireguard network today, the exit node is at my house lol, so no 'hiding my location from hackers' or whatever vpn companies' stupid advertising says. i mostly set it up so i can play around with routing and put remote stuff into my lan

i plan on setting up a network with multiple hops, so i can do routing stuff with CIDR's, but thats a long way off
