I should put together a more substantial post about stuff, but I already feel like I'm behind on things since I spent so much time playing Zelda while at Alix's place, I should get started on that. I might post something later. I also made some macaroni from the bagged food, and so far I feel okay, so hopefully I won't die. Of all the stupid ways to go if I do.
All my dreams lately have been horrorshows of varying degrees, which isn't unusual or a surprise to me anymore. Last night in particular, I dreamed that Nana was alive again for a brief period of time through some kind of unexplained medical miracle. Then after I think maybe a week, or ten days, the medical miracle had taken its course, or had faded, or something like that, and it was over and she was going to die again at any moment. When I heard that I just started sobbing non-stop, I just couldn't handle losing her again after getting her back. Everyone else just tried to talk around me or ignore me while I was weeping uncontrollably, even Nana who usually did try to comfort me when I cried. I just sort of collapsed onto the table we were all sitting at, still weeping. Then all of a sudden I was somewhere else entirely new, and everyone was doing other things, and when I asked them what happened, they said I'd apparently blacked out for some twenty minutes. I didn't faint or anything, I was awake, although they said I was disoriented and hard to understand while I was talking, but I had no memory of what happened during the twenty minutes. Like I'd blacked out without actually losing consciousness. It was a really disconcerting feeling. I woke up feeling really heavy and tired.
That one KSR about how if you send a generation ship filled with the learnedly ignorant, colonization will surely fail aside, are there any SF novels recent enough to use the exoplanets we now know of as settings?
I’m finally getting back to working on a new gateway/router server and I’m basically setting up this old-school sort of DMZ, with the rest of our servers hanging off one card, and our internal LAN/DHCP/NAT side hanging off the other. (Using ISC, which Debian seems to like.) And all of that seems to be right from the new server’s perspective, which is yay!
Except there’s no packet forwarding from the DHCP side even though it’s enabled and I’m sure I enabled it and yes the kernel thinks its enabled but it isn’t happening.
Any ideas where to start?
Anyway, I'd blame that for not getting anything done over here, but Alex brought over his Switch and I've been playing Breath of the Wild, which has been very distracting thankfully. I'm trying to get as much time in it as I can before I head back home and he takes it back. There's just so much to see though! I know I haven't even scratched the surface of all the stuff in the game yet. But it definitely does help keep your mind off of frightening things. Well, things I'm currently frightened of, anyway.
Fig and Ibid will likely have to be re-homed.
