Many thanks to everyone that attended the first ever virtual #NetMcr this evening! (Doubling as our 46th event!) We've had a lovely time catching-up, and have learnt a lot of lessons - roll on NetMcr 47 in a month's time! 😁
You know it's time.
Early release of our Halophile Router project, presented @firstname.lastname@example.org, is up at https://faelix.link/hphr — a @SaltStack@twitter.com-automated, @email@example.com template to deploy IRR- and RPKI-filtering, BCP38-compliant BGP routers for small ISPs. More info about it @firstname.lastname@example.org soon!

Following the uproar over @ISPAUK@twitter.com's #InternetVillain award, @email@example.com and @firstname.lastname@example.org from @email@example.com sat down to talk about why people are so upset about it:
Nice work by @firstname.lastname@example.org!
