  • If my local ISP is providing us 10G fiber...where do I get the hardware to handle it residentally? Commodity does not seem to support beyond 2.5G WAN when I checked, TIP Link or Netgear Orbi routers are costing $300-$400.
  • PFSense/OPNSense + 10 Gbps NIC
  • Netgate 7100 1U ($1199)

  • There seems to be many anecdotal stories of how tech has improved health and saved people's lives. Especially with Apple Watches. Seems beneficial for those who want to have a little nudge for a healthier lifestyle. When does a product's benefits outweigh Open Source yearnings? PineTime is still a work in progress and seems a little too experimental for some.
  • Pragmatism out of laziness vs out of necessity

  • hello, I'm looking for an android app + nextcloud app combo, that will allow me to drop pins on a map, preferably with a photo, of Points of interest. Would like to use during hiking to mark potential camp spots. I'd like to be able to share this with my wife without sending a gpx file after each trip (hence the desire to utilize my nextcloud instance). If nothing for nextcloud, I'd still be open to other suggestions. Thanks!
