Routing Tunneled IPv6

 

As great as FiOS is (and no, this isn’t running on it), one of the major flaws is that Verizon has acted like IPv6 doesn’t exist. For such a “next-gen” fiber-optic network, the only thing we’ve gotten from VZ is talks of it “coming soon”. But after 6 years, soon still hasn’t come. It looks like if I want IPv6 support on my network, I’m going to have to tunnel it. So why not just set something up to make IPv6 available on my network like it was native, but it’s all running through a tunnel.

That’s just what I did, and in a long roundabout way; here’s how it’s done.

Phuck The Pfitz: Pfitzner Stadium Needs To Go

The Potomac Nationals are playing their last year at Pfitzner Stadium outside of Woodbridge. (Im sorry… Pfitzner isn’t in Woodbridge despite what anyone says.) While many want them to stay where they are (including the Board of Supervisors lead by that pathetic excuse of a slimeball Corey Stewart)…I for one am on the other side. Fuck Pfitzner Stadium!

Android Music Players: My Running List (Updated: 9 Apr)

This is going to be a continually updated list of music/media players I’ve tried for Android, along with my successes, failures, and opinions of the application. My only main requirement that I cannot flex on is that it must support Ogg Opus. It is, for this reason, many of you may find your favorite “best media player ever” got a pretty negative review.

It’s Time To Retire My iPod

It’s time to face the music…my iPod has to be retired. Though they’ve served me well for 13 years, it’s time to bite the bullet and change, once again, how I listen to music. In fact, it’s been close to 20 years since my serious musical journey started. So I’m going to take this time to reflect upon all my previous methods, why my I made my iPods last so long, and what’s next.

Fuck you Getty Images…and Fuck you too Google

In a move that can only be compared to bending over and letting Getty take them up the ass; Google has removed the “View Image” button from Google Images.

This is rendering Google Images completely fucking useless.

The problem is sometimes the image you want is on a blog…or a forum…and when you click “Visit”…you’re not sent to the page with the image. You’re sent elsehwere…where you’ll NEVER FIND THE IMAGE YOU WANT!

So now…instead of being a great resource…this thing is essentially just a platform for Getty to sell it’s shit. I can’t actually find the shit I want anymore.

Fuck you Getty.

Mountain Dew “Ice” – Branding Gone Nuts

So I was in the grocery store last night and saw yet another version of Mt Dew on the shelf. I decided to give it a try.

Now I’ve been drinking this stuff for much longer than I should admit to, though during my impressionable youth I suppose I got hooked in to the branding. I’ve cut way back on my soda cosumption as I got older and sometimes I don’t reach for a Dew anymore, but it still holds a place as an old standby.

I remember when Code Red came out. I was disappointed. It didn’t taste like Mountain Dew and more like carbonated Hawaiian Punch. Livewire was a surprising change and Baja Blast was the flavored Dew I’d been expecting since 2002. I found that despite brand influence, I’d come to get used to and prefer the original flavor. Even when throwback came out…it took a while to realize it just wasn’t the HFCS version I’d come to love…which is interesting because I love the real sugar Pepsi.So I get this Ice not knowing what to expect.

Its a Sprite/7-Up clone. A typical lemon lime soda. It has a very limey aftertaste, more than Sprite. Almost seemed to be more tart. But it’s obviously not Mountain Dew. The biggest thing is it has caffeine whereas most Lemon/Lime sodas don’t.

I can underatand variations of a soda…but this is entirely different. It tastes like Mt Dew is trying to become its own brand entirely.

Now if only get Pepsi 1893(or is it 1892) in a 12 pack for the price if regular Pepsi.

Eat A Dick, Sessions

Fuck you…yoh fucking fascist asshole.

The people spoke…they voted…and you like a goddamn moron decide to overturn it. You and the rest of an excuse of this facist piece if shit dictatorship have decided you want to enforce what YOU want.

You won’t talk aboit changing policy…no one else wants to talk about changing policy. You want to force this policy on a public that increasingly don’t agree with it.

The will of the people are being murdered. Our democracy is decaying. You’re part of the system.

You said you weren’t going to do this. You lied. You are unfit for the office. I have even LESS trust on the legitimacy of the administration.

 

Eat a dick.
