covid, family death
My uncle will be gone soon.
He recently entered the care of a hospital which has been massively overloaded, and they were not able to provide the care he needed.
Please do not make the choices which make such situations possible. I don't know how else to say it. Please don't. This is heartbreaking.
Unrequested strong opinion on the beauty of lackthereof of private IPv4 blocks.
The 172.16.0.0/12 private block is ugly.
I find it ugly because there's a good chunk of the public internet that looks like it.
192.168 and 10 are super recognizable at first glance.
172.16-31 is annoying
188.8.131.52 = public
172.16.3.5 = private
At first glance, they look the same, and that's bad.
Fancy, finally an alternative to Let's encrypt!
It's always good to have alternatives around. ZeroSSL appears to be a European company that now provides free TLS certificates using the ACME protocol.

I replaced the servo drivers on my 3D printer and printed a better cooling duct to ventilate them (they have a heatsink on top, only visible on one of them in the uncovered picture).
The fan was too big for the duct design I found, so I used sugru for the first time to glue it on and seal it of.
It all works like a charm now. Silent and precise.
