@condoulo:matrix.orgTyler | CaffeinatedLinuxI wish my situation would have allowed me to travel this year. 17:30:10
@vitu42:matrix.orgvitu42Yeah, i just got around to trying out Matrix stuff. Its taking some getting used to.17:31:29
@vitu42:matrix.orgvitu42I'm not too far from LFNW, but I also don't have the time.17:32:04

Get a small audio mixer with Bluetooth, or use wireless headphones and leave your Bluetooth charged for when you need your phone and fully charged ear buds.
Bluetooth is the way on any device, headphones or speakers

@dexsword:matrix.orgDexI am curious, why would a router need a 128gb nvme drive? I need a new router and some of them have a lot of RAM. What is a minimum for a standard 1gig home network?18:35:22

That would entirely depend on what you plan to use the network for. Any basic router works for 99% of home uses, but if you want to do more fancy stuff, like VLANs, maybe a couple of docker containers (PiHole anyone?) more ram is a must. I'm using an old Linksys WRT1900ACS, bought specifically because it supports running custom router software, like OpenWRT or dd-wrt. It's got 512MB ram (currently 422 free), and it's plenty for what I use it for (two VLANs, and some port forwarding to a git server and a Minecraft server). As for the NVMe drive, it's only needed if you need to run more than just basic routing, like for instance a file server.

But this is just my opinion

19:13:21
@dexsword:matrix.orgDexAh I see, I run pihole off my server, and tail scale on my devices. the router is simply routing.19:15:51
@stenpett:matrix.orgstenpettThen I'd simply find whatever router can run OpenWRT and is on sale, and get that19:16:44
@stenpett:matrix.orgstenpettI've got a router that my ISP provided. It's still sealed in a box in the cellar...19:17:45

Is this a small form factor computer that has been turned into a router? If so I imagine it has more to do with 128gb SSDs being the bare minimum these days, and if it's a fairly recent one then nvme doesn't surprise me either. It does feel like a waste having 128gb SSDs for such purposes but it's hard to find new SSDs of smaller capacities.

I've been deleting about 1,000 spam feeds per day, but that doesn't seem like enough to kill your DB.

Around the house I use cheap wireless headphones that I can replace the rechargeable batteries easily. I think they were under $50. They have better range than Bluetooth.

RAM is needed to cache DNS lookups. With multiple devices you can get hundreds of domains. If you run out of room, every page load slows down as cache doesn't have the info from one request to the next. Newer routers are designed for this. Older routers just deal with it and slow you down. So don't think you can max out RAM usage. Routers usually have soldered parts, so replacing them isn't reasonable. Having a large NVMe SSD allows room for failed blocks without causing the router to stop working. As long as you can get updates, everything should work fine.

You would definitely need plenty of resources if you plan on running IDS and/or IPS.

I need to get fingerprinted for a job and they said to go to the law enforcement office
Interesting it had to be electronic , usually you can still do there paper and ink for background checks and digital on sight for biometrics

I don’t think they require digital, it’s that I live 45 minutes from a place with lots of businesses and they were more concerned with me finding that service.
Apparently UPS is partnering with a company that does (or is?) LiveScan.
I was warned that UPS might change $20/page. A normal person might put 10 prints on a page, whereas UPS might put one finger on a page. I’m more price than distance sensitive so I could call the county sheriff and city police headquarters and see how much they charge
