No deviled eggs Vin, but witloof/chicory with special potatoes, turkey schnitzel with Stroganoff sauce and cherry icecream  :D

Sounds devilishly good  ;D

I'm a vegetarian, but could eat 55% of that meal...

This link is for my future reference
https://askubuntu.com/questions/1050304/bluetooth-is-not-working-ubuntu-18-04-lts
which suggests to try kernels <= 4.15.0-32
(as this is PM9, it might also be worth trying the 5.0.0 kernel from the HWE)

If I may interject...

I've been running my PM9 daily driver on top of Linux 4.15.0-23 (not a typo) for quite a while - 54d 8h uptime, as I type.

It's rock solid!

Just saying. Carry on...  ;)

What the heck is "Zhen-Xjell" anyway ?

That goes back to my PHP-Nuke days (generally) and NukeCops (specifically).

I was on the NukeCops dev team, but the Chief (Zhen-Xjell) sold the site to the Italians, and moved on to web security.

The Italian company, that bought them, asked me to stay on and admin the website - which I did, for a year or more.

The language barrier finally got the best of me. They tried to collaborate in English, but it was rough going.

Eventually, I found a guy in Phoenix from (Northern) Italy and I used him to translate messages back n' forth to the boys in Bergamo, but he wasn't technically orientated, so it became too much of a hassle.

Anyway, that's the source of nick. Flash forward to today...

When pin recently got me interested in reddit (at this late date) some %$#! had already registered my nick, so I decided to steal my former Chief's nick - in order to fight with the pre-teen kids on reddit.

Let this be a lesson to you, in case you ever consider selling and abandoning the Peppermint OS website :))

Today is Shane's birthday, but I doubt he has much use for slack either.

No reason to post a salutation, right?   :)

Interesting

I'm using Fx 69.0 (64-bit) right now, on a tightly wound corporate kiosk, complete with nannyware. These machines are locked-down pretty tight; and, I can see the .png on VinDSL.com just fine :-\

I'll check it out, when I get back to the abode. I doubt if I have auth to shell into my servers from this box...  ;)

Isn't this more of a proxy than VPN ?

True, but...

DoT & DoH deployment is baked into Fx, so the proxy isn't riding bareback, right?  ;)

So what is it ? .. some kinda API that protects you against Google like behaviour ?

Oh, the irony of the situation. What goes up, must come down, down, down, down...  ;)

General Discussion / Firefox Users: Beta VPN Service (Desktop Extension)
« on: September 12, 2019, 10:02:17 am »
Mozilla has officially launched a new privacy-focused VPN service, called Firefox Private Network, as a browser extension that aims to encrypt your online activity and limit what websites and advertisers know about you.

Firefox Private Network service is currently in beta and available only to desktop users in the United States as part of Mozilla's recently expunged "Firefox Test Pilot" program that lets users try out new experimental features before they were officially released.

The Firefox Test Pilot program was first launched by the company three years ago but was shut down in January this year. The company now decided to bring the program back but with some changes.

For now, if you have a Firefox account and reside in the United States, you can test the Firefox VPN service for free by signing up on the Firefox Private Network website: https://private-network.firefox.com/

It's working fine here, in His Majesty's former rebel colony...  8)

We do have a nascent independence movement down here VinDSL... though it's largely supplanted by the Reconquistas led by the Grijalva family.

Aha! I thought you were talking geographically - not politically.

I've always thought that they should split Arizona into four states - including relocating Israel from the Middle East to south of Tucson, on the border - to both get Israel out of harm's way, and provide a barrier to the Central American hordes that are invading the USA.

But, I digress... WB, spence  :)
