on which note, "what are you even doing with nixwrt, Daniel?"

Glad you asked. As of the day before yesterday approximately (sqrt sod-all) but I am trying to get back into it

  • I ordered a second gl-ar750 so I have a dev device as well as the one that holds the family's internet access together
  • I am randomly refactoring stuff to make it easier to build particular parts (e.g. the kernel) from the command line than currently. I sometimes find myself building the whole monolithic image and then using binwalk to extract the component of interest, which feels suboptimal
  • I am wondering if I can revive the qemu target and somehow make it useful (maybe it could have emulated ethernet with a tap device so I could write tests that talk to a pppoe server, or ... I dunno ... something)
