New v0.2 release of hphr, incorporating our lessons learned automating @vyos_dev@twitter.com in production using @SaltStack@twitter.com at AS41495: github.com/faelix/hphr/release

We've already brought one new member to @LINX_Network@twitter.com, and they're starting on . Hoping to bring many more!

Great news from member and ConneXions reseller partner @faelix@twitter.com! They've just added an additional reseller port to the LINX network. This means they can now connect networks to both and now LINX in . twitter.com/faelix/status/1245

Good to hear some of the biggest networks in the world are joining us in supporting @RoutingMANRS@twitter.com to increase the security of the Internet's BGP routing: darkreading.com/perimeter/majo

Loads of interest in Meet right now. We span up an instance of this -to-use system a couple of weeks ago at faelix.tv/ β€” now spotting colleagues running thepubhub.me/ meet.infomaniak.com/ and of course meet.jit.si/

Detailed post by @internetplumber@twitter.com about QSFP28 modules and laser diode degradation causing connectivity issues on a 100G port. Feels a bit like when a LAG member goes bad, which we wrote about faelix.net/news/201705/aggrava and became our most popular news post.

If you trust your web browser's WebRTC implementation then @jitsinews@twitter.com has got your requirements covered and your thread model addressed. We deployed a Jitsi Meet node β€” free, open-to-everyone video conferencing β€” a few days ago at faelix.tv/

RT @CHTJonas@twitter.com

It’s a shame that possibly the best video conferencing software, Zoom, also has an atrocious record on computer security vulnerabilities. Why is software hard? πŸ™ƒ

We can see why @Microsoft@twitter.com @msftsecurity@twitter.com hired @GossiTheDog@twitter.com.

Good to see another email service provider has decided the same as we did for our CRM back in 2018: no more spy pixels! faelix.link/emailtracking

RT @dhh@twitter.com

@mailbrew@twitter.com I'm even happier to report that I was able to convince the team to forgo the spy pixels that any email startup would naturally default to. So there are no spy pixels in the Mailbrew sendings any more πŸŽ‰β€οΈ

Stretching the analogy: there are hosting providers that actually are wind-powered, and there are clouds that are as bad for the environment as cheap flights.

Using Google Cloud, AWS, etc always feels like I've rented an airport (but none of the people needed to run it) to fly a kite.

Early release of our Halophile Router project, presented @net_mcr@twitter.com, is up at faelix.link/hphr β€” a @SaltStack@twitter.com-automated, @vyos_dev@twitter.com-powered template to deploy IRR- and RPKI-filtering, BCP38-compliant BGP routers for small ISPs. More info about it @uknof@twitter.com soon!

In addition to spraying our name onto the airwaves via the open SSID we run in every POP, we're also sticking our retro-futuristic logotype onto our cabs.

RT @NetworkMoose@twitter.com

Scarf Monty decided that the little printed label stuck onto the cab by the datacentre wasn't sufficiently "on-brand".

Somewhat optimistic estimate from 2010 β€” networkworld.com/article/22273 β€” suggests thousands of customers per IP address. For our any-UK-mobile-network 4G SIM product, we've started much more conservatively: ~100 devices per IPv4 NAT address.

RT @Mythic_Beasts@twitter.com

@LTE_Max@twitter.com How many broadband customers do you think are doable for an ISP with a single /24 of space? Is 100 customers per IP doable? 1000 ?

Faced with exactly this challenge, and some others, we looked at @vyos_dev@twitter.com and we came up with: faelix.link/netmcr40 (4x10GE, 2x1GE, around USD$2000)
