Control Panel - In praise of dials, toggles, buttons, and bulbs. Now here's a rabbit hole to get lost down... via

Check out our deep dive blog post - "High Availability L2TP LNS Steering with FreeRADIUS and ExaBGP" featuring specification, technical design, and implementation details of our L2TP RADIUS tunnel-steering configuration for wholesale XDSL/FTTP services.

Given how Starlink has control of the whole stack, it's amazing they're not deploying DNS64/NAT64 using 464XLAT. Plenty of mobile carriers in Europe have been using this as a huge legacy address space saver.


I take Starlink being all IPv4 CGNAT as validating my minimal viable product reasoning.


Cold call to the office: "can we speak to your finance team? someone at your org has been browsing our website's IFRS16 pages and I wanted to follow up…"

Yes, we're an ISP…

When the "C" in "CRM and Sales Leads Analytics" stands for "creepy-pasta" and "clueless".

For many years we have shunned

Our ever-worsening perception of how they treat small registrars: disenfranchise via voting system, ignore by disbanding engagement channels, belittle grassroots campaigns.

Hope to join soon… after takes the trash out.

Interesting - favicons potential as stealth trackers "The complexity and feature-rich nature of modern browsers often lead to the deployment of seemingly innocuous functionality that can be readily abused by adversaries,”

Never seen anything like it, in all our years of working in datacentres.


Paint me like one of your French moose!

To whoever was last in this rack in Telehouse TFM23: it might be time to do the right thing and own up! We know exactly when it happened from when that MikroTik's PSU1 failed, and a server lower in the rack suffered a bent CPU heatsink.


We're delivering white label ISP services to a development of 61 flats in Bolton - 1Gbit circuit providing 100mb symmetric connectivity to each flat with faster packages available

Interesting distributed file system development in Brave browser development IPFS

We were recently interviewed by Network Collective for their podcast - we covered a lot of ground: moving from Mikrotik to VyOS; using Netbox as a single source of truth; our open source project 'Halophile Router' - mixing Saltstack, Netbox and VyOS; and much more.

When Adobe Stopped Flash Content From Running It Also Stopped A Chinese Railroad:

ah Flash, used it before Adobe bought it - it was called FutureSplash - we animated a dancing Bez (cost us £500 for the 'worldwide' rights for Bez cartoon animations).

Good breakdown of costs in investing in a hardware startup (US venture model) - thanks

"RSS > AMP" is one of many decentralisation, federation and syndication hills we're prepared to die upon:

Over 1,000 brands ran ads alongside election misinformation - 'efficient' programmatic ad placement highly targeted and open to fraud

Exactly why we set up our privacy DNS service, available to anyone via DNS-over-HTTPS. Read more:


Governmental agencies are standardising on ad blockers because adtech is too much of a malware vector (it also makes it easy to spy on users).

How long before this is expected of CISOs in business too? How about we fix this before it's too late?
