We covered a lot of ground in our discussion here, including the vw scandal, "closed source" vs "open source" vs "public source", the router security problems at epidemic levels across the internet - as well as the solved   #bufferbloat  problem, the abuse of the DMCA by vw and others - and a huge array of other issues that Vint Cerf, Jim Gettys, Linus Torvalds, Eric Raymond, Dave Reed, Sascha Meinrath and 260+ other famous engineers and scientists have attempted to solve in putting a new plan in front of government and the FCC, for solving the problems inherent in IoT and #wifi .

Our press release is here: businesswire.com/news/home/20151014005564/en/Global-Internet-Experts-Reveal-Plan-Secure-Reliable

Our  letter to the FCC: fqcodel.bufferbloat.net/~d/fcc_saner_software_practices.pdf
 
Here's #vuc563  audio recording
The panel discussion with +Dave Taht, +Jim Gettys, +Paul Vixie, +Lauren Weinstein, +Corrado Mella, +Keith Milner, +Loganaden Velvindron (live from Mauritius with not that much latency!) and +Elektra Wagenrad who drifted in to make the most concise statement of the evening!

You can watch the video on http://vuc.me/2015/vuc563-the-fcc-vs-open-firmware/
Very good discussion with people on three continents, reflections on open source, security, code, privacy and so much more. Watch video on Youtube on voipusers channel.

Nearly forgot to mention +Dan York,  Ray Ramadorai and +Loganaden Velvindron. We must try this again soon, so many interesting points came out of it.

So do true bugs I guess; this one is pretty, but a bug it is not ;) I would put money on it being a hymenoptera (which http://microsculpture.net confirms)

*/ Air pollution has a significant and pervasive impact on public health. According to the World Health Organization, it is now considered "the world's largest single environmental health risk," with more than three million people dying every year as a result. This is more than twice the number of people that die in vehicle accidents each year.

sure hope they put a good wifi chip and driver and good antennas in these things: http://fortune.com/2016/04/28/google-hp-chromebook13-laptop/

chromebooks are useless without good wifi.

Looks like 1080p for the base model, and something much more comfortably high-res for a $100 upcharge.

Personally, I'm happy to see more laptops with USB-C charging -- particularly with multiple type-C ports. Having only one charger type shared between my devices (phones, tablets, &c) is a thing I very much look forward to (even though it'll need to wait for the Power Delivery extension to the spec for anything that can't live off 15W).

My apartment has close to 6 test routers and a multitude of computers large n small. Often shit brakes down and it gets chaotic here. Everything from the LED light bulbs to the amplifier for music run on apps, connected to phones and tablets which are connected to a specific router. So there is alot a flipping of WiFi to make things run. Something so simple, like the router in the bedroom breaks down a lot is connected to the TV. So I&#39;m watching Netflixs and then the wifi is down. Since everything is rigged a certain way, it&#39;s not so simple to reboot and make it work unless he is here.</a></p> <p style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;">A photo posted by Lorna Reed (@om_lorna) on <time style=" font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px;" datetime="2016-04-22T22:33:22+00:00">Apr 22, 2016 at 3:33pm PDT</time></p></div></blockquote>

wow, iw can give you good stats.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wireless_network_configuration#Manual_setup

but I sure wish it output stuff in more easily parsible formats.
Configuring wireless is a two-part process; the first part is to identify and ensure the correct driver for your wireless device is installed (they are available on the installation media, but often have to be installed explicitly), and to configure the interface. The second is choosing a method ...

Story
Tagline
singer, pianist, guitarist, writer, experimenter, theorist, hacker, maker, faker - in no particular order, on any given day. And I also write code.
Introduction
I used to be just a geek. Then I sold my house, left my cubicle, and travelled around the world, trying never to touch a computer, but observe how they were used, and how much better we could use them... now I'm still travelling, and still without a home - but trying once again to help hold up the sky, and finish what I helped start, so long ago.
Bragging rights
can surf big waves and fix big problems, and when I can't do either, can 'tom sawyer' others into thinking that they can do the same, and exceed their own limits.
