Experiencing the same linux mainstream kernel fun with the gl-ar750 as I did with the mt300a last summer - glad I took notes https://ww.telent.net/2019/5/6/nixwrt_next_words

For people who know kernel stuff: (1) to have a hope of seeing the hardware at all, ath9k needs an of_match_table entry with a compatible that matches the dts file; (2) this gets us an error of the form ath9k 18100000.wmac: no platform data specified which probably means I need to teach it how to find the ART MTD partition

Google play store won't let you purchase an app without having a device attached to the account. So even logging in with a real account on #aurorastore you are unable to actually purchase an app without logging in using the real play store on the actual device... Which is not possible on a device that has no google play services. Does anyone know of a workaround? Maybe have to put my spare phone back to stock and buy the app through that then download through aurora on this device. Ugh.

I'm not saying it works, because it doesn't, but my ath10k wireless at least appears now to exist in #nixwrt. This is progress and it makes me happy

In northern Ethiopia, at 130 meters below sea level, in the hottest valley in the world, there exists a series of pools that look more alien than anything that should rightly be found on Earth.

This is the dangerously beautiful Dallol Volcano, and hydrothermal system, found in the Danakil depression. The highest point of the volcano reaches -48 meters above sea level. Brine pools and acidic liquid spout from the ground, building up salt and sulfuric pillars as temporary geysers build them. Here, not two but three tectonic plates move away from each other, causing the land to sink deeper and deeper, and bringing up minerals from deep within the Earth. In the next few million years, the Red Sea will eventually fill the depression.

The word Dallol, in the language of the Afar people, means disintegration. The Disintegration Volcano.

It just took me an hour to discover why my blog server kept hanging every time I tried to fetch the new entry. The image it referenced was not world-readable.

This is terrifically embarrassing. It might be a defence that my blog server has the world's worst error messages in this scenario, but this is still a source of embarrassment because I wrote it myself.

https://ww.telent.net/2019/11/18/got_the_power probably not worth the time spent on it, imo
