Bookmark cleanout, December 2018


I’m clearing out my bookmarks folder for the year. Here’s some randomness:

  • I couldn’t stop looking at this beautiful artwork by Shi Yu on Pixiv, pictured above. They’ve got a ton of amazing landscapes.

  • A Melbourne cafe was slammed with negative Google ratings when their name was used in a year 12 exam. Why didn’t the exam writers check this first? Seems utterly irresponsible.

  • Nvidia classes any GPU older than the GeForce GTX 480 as legacy. You can use their Nvidia legacy drivers page to determine which FreeBSD X11 driver you need for an older tower.

  • WireGuard purports to be faster, simpler, leaner, and more useful than IPSec or OpenVPN. It was originally written for Linux, but now also runs on FreeBSD and other OSs.

  • This figure of Steins;Gate’s Makise Kurisu was re-released this year. In the words of a certain Apple executive, it took a tremendous courage not to purchase her!

  • This GnuBee device looks like a great, low-cost NAS. This is their 2.5-inch model, but they also have a 3.5-inch version.

  • Educating Archie is one of my all-time favourite old time radio programmes, and it’s on the Internet Archive!

  • The Dell C3765dnf — gesundheit — has drivers for older macOS versions, but it still runs fine on Mojave.

  • I use Ansible on FreeBSD, and now you can create jail hosts courtesy of Joerg Fiedler.
