Torvalds: I Made Community-Building Mistakes With Linux

segedunum Poettering Was Funny (387 comments)

Ironically, Poettering's rant only served to highlight the issues and interpersonal problems he was rather than Linus or anyone else.

ISPs Violating Net Neutrality To Block Encryption

segedunum Re:Lacking Credibility (149 comments)

I'm afraid this is crap no matter how you word it. Verizon themselves attempted to debunk this, and they ended up not doing so. What's more, they've paid. The end.

If you want to keep repeating this fine, but at least keep up with events.

ISPs Violating Net Neutrality To Block Encryption

segedunum Re:Lacking Credibility (149 comments)

It means you've routed out your ISP through a peering point that isn't Level3, and that the peering point between your VPN provider and L3 is less saturated than your ISPs. That's all it proves.

I'm afraid that possibility has been discounted. Netflix has paid up. Didn't you get the memo?

Thus, if you are connecting to tcp/25, it is safe to assume, in this day and age, that you *are* an MTA.

Nope, it isn't safe to assume that. If that was the case then this traffic would be blocked completely, but it isn't, and what's more it is being modified. Do read the article.

ISPs Violating Net Neutrality To Block Encryption

segedunum Re:Lacking Credibility (149 comments)

When the original article cites as its first example of network tinkering the already thoroughly debunked "faster Netflix through my VPN" video, the level of technical credibility to the article is already set at "abysmal". There's no argument that the VPN tunnel was faster (obviously), but the alleged reason (which many sites, including this fine establishment, got on the bandwagon for, even though they should know better) was horseshit.

It's really quite simple. If you have a download speed topping out far lower than your maximum and you then connect through a VPN and get more available bandwidth then there is a rabbit away somewhere. Netflix have already now paid up anyway to get rid of this 'issue' for their users, so that debunks this bit of dog shit.

Second, the article demonstrates the problem with a connection to tcp/25. Unless the customer is running a mail *server* on their residential ISP line, they should be connecting to tcp/587. The wireless provider in question here is absolutely within their bounds to say "they don't want you running an SMTP MTA on the wifi", but that running a normal MUA is fine. Is there any evidence that this problem also exists for connections to tcp/587?

Connecting to something on port 25 and allowing inbound connections to something you have running on port 25 are two entirely different things. If you don't know that then you really don't know anything at all and frankly aren't qualified to comment.

ISPs Violating Net Neutrality To Block Encryption

segedunum Re:Cisco ASA (149 comments)

I can't mod you up any further, but yer, you're spot on. This is actually the default behaviour of a lot of routers. It might look like malice but in this case it could very well be complete laziness and a lack of awareness. Typical ISP in other words.

They could also start using alternative currencies, but I'm assuming they haven't considered that as a risk.

What Will It Take To Run a 2-Hour Marathon?

segedunum The Elephant in the Room (254 comments)

Performance enhancing drugs. Athletes at most levels of competition are at least training on them, so let's be honest, eh?

Lennart Poettering: Open Source Community "Quite a Sick Place To Be In"

segedunum Re:Systemd (993 comments)

I'm afraid it's become clear that Lennart has a lot of very serious personal and possibly mental issues that mean he just isn't suited to working with others. The progress of systemd will mean that eventually there will be a serious conflict with the kernel developers, amongst others.

Systemd Adding Its Own Console To Linux Systems

segedunum Re:it solves some unicode issues (774 comments)

Syslog facility does continue to function, but not in a way you are implying. Not independently. Journald must forward stuff to syslogd.

Exactly. I'm getting tired of hearing that things will continue to work in the way they always have when this issue comes up. They won't.

Systemd Adding Its Own Console To Linux Systems

segedunum Re:it solves some unicode issues (774 comments)

It's exactly the kind of misdirection and smoke-and-mirrors you get from the systemd crew every time a serious shortcoming is brought up. It's a pretty serious mental issue. Oh, and yes, having to deal with a corrupted Windows Event Viewer is exactly like this is going to be. Something you should just not have to deal with.

Oh, and I can already search my text logs in a 'fine grained' and searchable manner thank you very fecking much. I know that might come as a big fricking shock, but a lot of people are.

No, it doesn't. Stop repeating this crap of how I am 'free' to use syslog every time this issue comes up.

Systemd Adding Its Own Console To Linux Systems

segedunum Re:Is this a troll about systemd or is this real n (774 comments)

It's a Lennart Poettering meltdown and accurately exemplifies the problems people have with him, those around him and why people are justifiably concerned about the software he is being allowed to write. This guy simply has 'issues'.

If he believes he's going to take on Linus and the kernel developers, stamp his feet and take over the Linux landscape he's going to lose badly.

Lennart Poettering: Open Source Community "Quite a Sick Place To Be In"

segedunum Re:Systemd (993 comments)

i was asking about software you wrote as you are the one moaning.

Questioning someone's ability to write software or telling everyone to write a patch knowing full well they either can't, or it won't be accepted if they do, is right up Lennart's alley. Is that you Lennart?

segedunum Re:Systemd (993 comments)

Troll? For pointing out that networkmanager, pulseaudio and systemd actually work?

You sound surprised. However, they all still have longstanding problems which their developers have a long history of passing off.

....and I'll qualify the Windows Event Viewer comparison by saying at least I'm reasonably confident Microsoft will fix an issue or I'll find a workaround.

Systemd Adding Its Own Console To Linux Systems

segedunum Re:Need a debian fork (774 comments)

This will be coming, and the Linux developers will have to chip in because systemd is already compromising their ability to actually do their work. I know you, and others like you, make that kind of comment because you believe it will never happen. It will, because it will have to.

segedunum Re:it solves some unicode issues (774 comments)

I mean, some of us are legally required to keep logs. Look at that piece of meaningless crap Lennart posts as a final response to this.

Posted as AC? Check. Comment blames crazy user? Check. Is that you Lennart?

Systemd Adding Its Own Console To Linux Systems

segedunum Re:at some point it isnt linux anymore. (774 comments)

It's the opinion of anyone who has ever interacted with him, and the crew he has around him. The kernel developers at the moment are just trying to avoid that lot. Soon they won't be able to. Passive aggressive, corrosive, unresponsive to any problem that looks serious and when they do respond it's a problem somewhere else or it's waved away with a completely non-sensical response.
