[CHUGALUG] AT&T 1950

From: Wil Wade 
------------------------------------------------------
Via HN I thought this was an interesting historical tale due to the
previous discussions of Net Neutrality and Comcast/EPB.

http://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/the-battle-over-net-neutrality-started-with-the-1920s-era-hushaphone

Although I will say that it almost sounds more like Apple. However, Comcast
is one of those fighting freedom for set top boxes.

I think many/most classical liberals (i.e. free market econs) would
consider the attempts to block hush a phone to be a good place for the
government to require freedom (consumer in this case). You shouldn't be
able to tell me what to do with something I purchased as long as it is not
physically damaging to you... Hmmm.....

Extend WiFi to wired

From: Joseph Simoneau 
------------------------------------------------------
Apparently every electrician in Atlanta charges about $100 to give an
estimate or just no-shows without calling, so I'm giving up on running a
wire to my homelab.

I need a router that has 1+ wired ports and will use a WiFi connection for
WAN. I obviously don't mind setting something up, but I don't want to have
to build a computer for it. None of the (either very old or Apple) routers
seem to want to work.

What do I buy? Price...say under a few hundred bucks.

Need server hardware

From: "Daniel L. Appleget" 
------------------------------------------------------
I have an openfiler system that was running on a now dead Dell Poweredge 
1650.

I am sure all of the data is intact the server will just not post.

I would love to move the 3 Drives (1 system/boot + 2 in mirror set that 
have data),
to another working server.

Drives are all SCSI 80pin hot swap, U3 and U320.'
Published 1650 specs state U160.
"/Dual channel Adaptec 7899, Ultra3 (U160) SCSI/"

So if you have a Poweredge 1650 you want to sell or another machine that 
I can read these drives with call me.

OT: Long Post: Smartphone rant (Take 2?)

From: Unkmar 
------------------------------------------------------
It's dead Jim:
Well, it happened.  My last smartphone has died.  Accidentally entered pool
with my phone in my pocket.

Linux or bust:
Last smartphone!  Multiple reasons, yet it all boils down to I want a Linux
smartphone or not at all.  I should own the phone if I bought it,
especially at $300.

Next Phone:
So, My next phone will at best be a candy bar simple feature with full
qwerty keyboard.  Otherwise, a candy bar 12 pad.  I refuse to do the slider
or sideways keyboards.  I'll be looking for the following features,
moderate camera resolution, and SMS.  I don't need GPS.  I don't need to go
places I don't already know or someone I'm with doesn't already know.  You
can find me with your fancy phone if your seeing me is that important to
you.  Or vacations, I can rent a GPS.  Can't be rented?  Okay, buy and
return within 2 weeks.

Samsung Note: (TouchWiz mess)
A few years back, I bought the Samsung Note.  Not the Note 2, 3, 4... ad
nauseum.
I promptly roo....  Nope, Can't do that without attaching to a computer.
Okay, so I promptl... Nope.  Trying to do it in Linux was a fight in
futility.  So, I handed my phone to another geek friend and he rooted the
phone for me.  He waited on Winders to install some drivers, installed a
debugging thing.  Downloaded and installed Android SDK stuff.  Well, went
through all kinds of crap and got it rooted.  By in large, I liked the
phone and features.  I didn't like TouchWiz. So I tried a couple of
different launchers and settled on Nova because of its stability and
features.  I feverishly played with and programmed that phone off and on
for 6 months.  Then I started hitting walls.  Lots of walls.  Had plenty of
wiggle room to do lots more things I'd like and better round out many of
the Tasks I'd created using Tasker.  However, some things just didn't
report properly.  Some things just weren't accessible.  Some where
unreliable.  I had out grown the phone in under 6 months.  I stopped most
all development with the phone because I had outgrown it.  It could no
longer keep up with my desires and demands.  And I couldn't simply code my
way out of it either.  Sure, I did code my way around many things.  Others
simply weren't to be had.  Other people were forging ahead with newer

several attempts to download the update.  In hindsight, I am very glad it
failed. (Explained in Nexus 5)  Phone eventually died and I went without a
smartphone for a few months.

Nexus 5: (Not a utopia)
I dreamed and imagined that getting closer to Google would release many of
my Samsung struggles.  I was wrong.  I started up my phone and started
getting this eerie tickling feeling I was being watched.  For the first
time, I was really starting to feel the phone wasn't mine.  You MUST have a
Google account to use this device. Yes, this was the case in the previous
Android as well.  Somehow, in my excitement I had overlooked it.  That
enthusiastic excitement was now gone.  I was starting to get the feeling
that "Anything you say can and will be used against you in a cour..".
Sorry, I think you get the idea.  If not. "I WAS FEELING STALKED!"  So, I
am signed in again.  After all, I already have an account. Now I proceed to
root my phone.  Nope! Again, I must attach to a computer, install drivers,
install debugger, (ADB - Android Debug Bridge), install 3rd party
questionable rooting software specifically for your type of phone. And even
at that, it really needs to be Mac or Windows.  Easiest when you use
windows.  (grumble, grumble, windows, virus target, $$Mac$$, Closed off)  I
like Linux, I hate others!  Hey, I respect the others in their own right.
I do understand some of the struggles and efforts required in order to
create and maintain a robust OS.  Respecting the work doesn't mean I have
to like the results of the labor.  Back to the phone.  I had the phone

again.  Okay. I programmed it to say, "Signal Lost"  every time it went
down and "Service Acquired" when it came up.  That was happening a lot.
Generally about twice an hour, sometimes more,  sometimes less.  In
addition, it would do it after nearly every call ended.  I changed the
messages to "Lost", "Found".  And setup logging of every incident and

Reported the problem to Google and nothing has come of it.  The nagging and
effectively forced update proved to me that Google owned the phone, not
me.  I was simply allowed to pay them to hold and use it for their easy
spying on me.

Nope, I won't have another smartphone until there is a Linux smartphone.
And I don't foresee that happening anytime soon.

Soliciting Recommendations for home office router

From: Lisa Ridley 
------------------------------------------------------
It’s time to replace my router.

I’ve got an Apple Time Machine that I bought back in 2006 that has started dropping connections and, I fear, is finally giving up the ghost.  I’m looking for recommendations for a wireless router, and while I love the ease of use of my trusty ole Time Machine, there are a few features it doesn’t have that would be nice to have in a new one.

* Reliability is first and foremost.  I don’t want to spend an inordinate amount of time troubleshooting and sending the damn thing back to the store, and I don’t want to go through 5 or 6 different one trying to find a reliable one.
* I have EPB at the house, so something that will let me take full advantage of the speed would be awesome.  I have the 1G plan.
* Needs to have a configurable firewall on board.
* I would like to connect several devices to it, some wireless, some wired (more than 4 but less than 10), including my workstation, a CI server and two small footprint computers I use for testing builds during development.
* Would like to route web traffic to different physical devices based on URL (makes the automated builds triggered by Github commits easier).  This is the single biggest drawback to my Time Machine; traffic can be routed based on port, but not URL.
* I don’t mind paying extra for reliability and features but I would prefer to NOT break the bank.

Recommendations are most welcome.



slow network watching on a Mac

From: Rod-Lists 
------------------------------------------------------
Got a cousin who has a Mac and a Apple router. ISP is comcast and he lives in an apartment.
He has been experiencing some network slow downs and has asked for help.
What some things he can use to trouble shoot. 
As far as I know iptraf isn't on Macs.

Got a call....

From: Mike Harrison 
------------------------------------------------------
Got a call from a friend in Dunlap TN and I’m far far away. 

From his phone call, it seems a neighbor is running a Wifi Pineapple or equivalent and snarfing traffic, playing havoc with their phones and computers. It may just be a really bad case of multiple systemic infections including his home router. 

Anyone want to help him out? He’s willing and able to pay a reasonable fee to solve this issue. 

email me directly if capable and interested: mike@geek…

Well they found the missing Sudaneses UTC student's body.
Apparently Apple did show activity on his account 2 days after he went missing but would not help the cops.
I guess this will be a hotly debated online ethics issue.

And Apple gets credit for the "smartphone" in 2007. Guess they only 
bothered to define a smartphone as an iphone, I know there were 
PDA+phone devices in the late/mid 90s, and I could browse on non-apple 
products waaaay before 2007. I guess Novell and MS actually replacing 
mainframes in the first place doesn't deserve a spot here, but < 15% 
desktop market share, < 1% server market share, and < 15% global mobile 
market share earns you lots of places in this silly list.  Writer/Editor 
is a FanBoi?

And it calls Linux an Operating System, so GNU is silently and 
implicitly included in that statement, because we all know that Linux is 
just a kernel, and without GNU, well, then you boot the Linux kernel and 
run BSD or Solaris or some other weird shit that just makes you feel 
unnatural...

Open Source/Linux (not GNU :( ) came in at 23.

Interesting that Apple was at 10 and Microsoft was no where to be seen
except that they bought a small company named Forethought at 53.

Apple Pay.

Ironically, they already got breached:
