My name is Francis. A Fox who enjoys doing system/network administration both as a job and hobby, mostly Linux.
I'm a very open-minded person, support LGBTQ+, and am overall a pleasant individual. When I'm not managing servers I'm ether sleeping or playing video games.
I like following artists in the fandom, meeting new people, and having fun!
Not very NSFW myself but I do follow those who are and enjoy their content, don't take it personally if I don't boost or fave/like.
Solo Sysadmin, Kinda funny
As a solo sysadmin for a few things it's always fun when you're going system by system making sure everything is updated and running properly and sometimes you find systems that even you completely forgot about, systems that you set up to do a job but never finished so it's just a empty box with the sole function of counting the days of uptime like whoops.
(-) Cisco VPN Troubleshooting
I love that Cisco decided that when you connect to a VPN with the AnyConnect client they force your system to use the tunnel for DNS which will break everything if no DNS service has been configured on the VPN group policy.
How hard is it to leave DNS alone if no DNS servers have been specified 🙃
IPv6 30% of the Internet
So it's 2020 and Google reports that only 30% of all the traffic they serve is IPv6.
It's been almost 10 years since IANA ran out of new public IPv4 addresses to assign out. We should make a public list of ISPs that are still dragging on IPv6 adoption.
Honestly once you've used it for awhile it becomes second nature.

Most shells over here in Linux land will let you put in "!!" as a placeholder for "the last command typed". Meanwhile, "sudo" means to do a thing as the high-powered "superuser" that has access to everything.
So when it rejects your command, saying that you don't have access, and you want to re-try it as the superuser, you can type:
And it's kind of satisfying screaming at the computer in this fashion to make it do what you want.
(-) Semantics, annoyed
I find it kinda annoying when people feel the need to put their two cents in on things as nebulous as semantics. A subreddit aimed towards the typical end user will refer to their gateway as a modem/router because that is how it is sold and marketed to them. Calling it a gateway, while it's true name, does nothing to help solve the problem. If I see the OP say modem in their post I will use that to avoid sounding condescending or adding unnecessary confusion.
