No need for an introduction, just make sure you watch the documentary Bannon’s War on whatever platform you prefer like youtube right here. For you Dutchies here’s a link with Dutch subs: https://www.npo.nl/2doc/31-05-2017/VARA_101383671
If you want IPv6 disabled permanently on a Ubuntu 16.04 system, here’s a good way to do it. Disabling it like this should keep it disabled permanently, even after performing updates that could potentially enable it again without you knowing it. I haven’t tested it so I’m not 100% certain but if you decide to upgrade Ubuntu to 16.10 or the most recent version, it should still have ipv6 disabled after upgrading. Now let’s get to it! Simply enter the following commands in your console:
p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>
sudo echo "net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1" | sudo tee /etc/sysctl.d/99-my-disable-ipv6.conf
sudo service procps reload
The ifconfig should not show any ipv6 address. A reboot is not required, but it won’t hurt either.
Today I found out that my dad has NOT seen Breaking Bad (yet). Even though I mentioned the show numerous times to both my parents and tried to convince them to at least try and see for themselves if they would like it or not. The fact that my dad has never done so, is, as you will all understand, totally unacceptable. Now I know that he’s mostly just interested in lawyer-related or detective TV-Shows, and I’m guessing that about 90% of them are British productions, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. On the contrary!! The Brits produce good quality stuff, and unfortunately often under-appreciated among the wider masses. Certainly my dad has a fine taste for good TV-shows, and that’s why I believe he shouldn’t miss out on one of the best shows ever made. I would love to give him the gift of ‘the Breaking Bad experience’. Now I know my dad, and there’s a big change that he won’t love it as much as I do, and also a reasonable chance that he will not like it at all! If this turns out to be the case than I will naturally be forced to disown him and remove his name and the rest of his family from my testament.
My dad recently asked me what show I was watching, so I told him I was watching a show about a law firm, since I know he loves those, but I immediately had to disappoint him because it would not make ány sense for him to watch Better Call Saul without having seen Breaking Bad first, due to the fact that it’s a spinoff. So he replied that he might perhaps some day, maybe, have a look at Breaking Bad. Sóów, he obviously needs a bit more convincing and that’s why I wrote this post. So, daddy dear, Breaking Bad is mentioned in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most critically acclaimed TV-show all-time. Just saying dad, just saying…
Please forget about your worries for the day and have a look at the following docu that was aired on national public dutch television on whatever the day before yesterday was. The read more link should be visible below here somewhere. If you manage to find it, then CLICK IT! Just do it, it’s your duty. Make sure you watch it till the very end.
Today I managed to make myself feel really, really old just by googling so I could share a link to the tune of mentioned TV-show. It also gave me some disturbing brain seizure-like symptoms, and some sort of self-reflecting thoughts towards my own life. That was new to me. Very unsettling.. Scary stuff. We shall speak no more of this afterwards
Are you, like me, in your late thirties, and from a country that showed the Flying Doctors back in the day, and feel like you can use a shot of bitter harsh reality on the fact you are getting freakishly old? Please click the link below to see the video I’m speaking of. Trust me, it’s awesome, it’s great, it’s the best. You should really click it. It’s not like you are doing anything useful with your life! Click now damned! Old fart that you are..
I own a Cisco WAP321 wireless access point and it’s a pretty neat device because it allows you to create multiple different (separated) wifi networks. For home use that option is not really very interesting. Well unless you want guests in your house to use a different wifi network so that they won’t stumble upon you’re fileserver and find your huge collection of ‘out of the ordinary’ weird, cheap, really twisted, amateur and/or self-made porn. I’m certain there are ‘some’ of you out there where this could be a plausible situation. Not me of course, I don’t store any porn (myself), but I’m drifting off-topic so back to the WPA321.
Recently I received a list with funny names to call your Wifi network but I just couldn’t choose one in particular so I enabled to option to activate all the additional wifi networks on the device, and as of now my wifi network list is no longer filled with default modem names from all the neighbors, but looks like what you see on the image. I wonder if enabling that many networks will influence my main wifi network in a negative way due to interference or something. But then again, who cares I only use wifi for my phone,
and to hack my neighbors wifi networks. Just kidding haha.
I’m seriously considering making an open wifi network with no password and monitor if and who is going to use it. Also it will send everybody who made a connection to a captive portal website and place something funny there but I haven’t been able to think of anything yet, but I will soon 🙂
This article is so badly stolen by me. I got it through a link. All credits go to the author I’m just a silly blogger excuse me. So here goes my rude copy/paste:
Last month, Reddit user Khemist49 made a truly unlikely find: a gold master source code disc of the original StarCraft. From 1998. At first, he didn’t know what to do with it. Ultimately, he sent it to Blizzard, who was very grateful to have it back. Khemist49 first came across the disc in a “box of Blizzard stuff” he purchased on eBay. He was shocked at what he saw: a CD-R that read “StarCraft Gold Master Source Code.”
Source code is a game’s underlying programming before it’s ever compiled and released. It’s often proprietary and is rarely made available to the public for fear of revealing company secrets. When Khemist49 first posted about StarCraft’s on Reddit, some people asked him to rip its contents and make them freely available, while others derided him as “scummy” for not doing so if he planned to try and make money off it. He wrote that the decision over what to do with it was driving him “crazy.”
After days of deliberation, Khemist49 said he heard from Blizzard directly. He said the publisher’s legal team had asked him to return the disc because it contained “intellectual property and trade secrets.” He sought legal advice about what to do, but ultimately decided to err on the side of caution and send it to Blizzard. For his troubles, he received a copy of Overwatch and $250 in Blizzard store credit. Cool. He figured that was the end of it.
But in an elated post last night, Khemist49 said that he received a phone call from a Blizzard employee. “He asked me if I have ever heard of BlizzCon,” wrote Khemist49. “I said well, yeah of course but it’s impossible for me to go. I live in the east coast, and the badges are always sold out before you can refresh the page. He said well, the reason we are calling you is to invite you to BlizzCon, all expenses paid, and we would love to take you out for drinks.”
Speaking to Kotaku by email, Blizzard confirmed Khemist49’s story, saying the company “wanted to show an appropriate level of appreciation to the player for doing the right thing, not just from Blizzard, but on behalf of the large and active community of players who still enjoy StarCraft today.”
Moral of the story: If you find something you think somebody has lost or had taken from them, return it. Especially if you can verify that it belongs to Blizzard Entertainment.
“MP4Box is a multimedia packager, with a vast number of functionalities: conversion, splitting, hinting, dumping and others. It can be used for performing many manipulations on multimedia files like AVI, MPG, TS, but mostly on ISO media files (e.g. MP4, 3GP). It is a command-line tool so it can be utilized by scripts like the php script that I want to use. MP4Box is included in the GPAC package.”
I want to be able to use a certain media hosting package but during installation it tells me that it will require MP4Box to continue. I tried installing it regularly (apt-get install mp4box) but that didn’t work. After doing a bit of research I decided to build MP4Box from scratch so that means compiling the source and here’s how I did that.

Here’s a short video that was aired in tv program DWDD just before the elections in my country when most people didn’t have any idea who to vote for up untill election day. I thought it was pretty good so that’s why I wanted to share it. It’s in Dutch and it does not have any subtitles.
Somebody I know, and who is very dear to me, works as a guide who hosts Ayahuasca cerenonies so naturally I wanted to know more about that and I’ve been watching a lot of stuff on youtube and that included an episode of Eye of the Needle that I posted below.
Finally!! I’ve found a new show to binge. It’s been a while since I did some serious binging. Might be weeks, perhaps even months! Hallelujah Netflix, praise you internet, thank you mother Data for bringing me Fresh Meat.
British shows always need a bit more time to warm up to. I believe this is because British shows usually choose to let the viewers get acquainted with the characters because that builds a solid foundation to write episodes for. At the very beginning I didn’t think Fresh Meat would become as entertaining as it turns out to be, or has become, or whatever. I’m a big fan of the Dutch girl Sabine who is as Dutch as Dutch can be. my favorite quote: “maja kan jou natuurlijk geen reet schelen”. The show digests easily, and I noticed that at the end of season one I started enjoying it more and more. I’m mid season 2 now and I’m préétty certain I’ll be hitting season four tomorrow. I also rate this show an extra thumbs up as it is perfect media to consume on a lazy Saturday or Sunday afternoon especially when hungover
Update: I’ve laughed myself to tears at least once per episode. This is not a show where the jokes that don’t make you laugh are fired as salvo at you with some laughing people soundfile on the background. These jokes come and grab you by the tits out of nowhere and when you think of them more they become even more funny. Also I’ve been smoking some weed but I’m pretty sure that has nothing to do with it.
Jules Deelder at his “best” at talkshow Jinek. It’s worth watching the complete show because it’s an adventure for all the other guests right from the start till the end.
Oh my god this show is depressing. My advice is: don’t watch it! But if you’re like me and take that sort of advice as an incentive to actually watch it, well try to see what the maker did here, an amazing job, but like I just said, it’s really depressing. I just finished watching it and I will now go to bed and cry myself to sleep, hopefullly. Good luck!
