Found it! Of course it was the photo gallery app, right next to the camera. Peace of mind found as well.

I lost an app icon on the smartphone home screen. Probably some accidental drag & drop that moved it into a folder, because there is this empty space now. I surely know that *something* was there and I used it regularly, but I can't figure out what app it was. It's mind boggling.

This struct_group() macro to access a group of members at once seems simple, yet clever. I am once again impressed what is possible within the limitations of the C language.

I complained about the Twitter Home feed and that I want Latest Tweets back, but it still did not return for me.

RT @mcclure111@twitter.com

I am seeing several indications that Twitter is legitimately, actually, doing an A/B surveillance test where they remove the "Latest Tweets" option and then *monitoring your feed to see if you complain about it*. twitter.com/doeantlers/status/

Hm, Twitter web finally lost the possibility to switch back to "latest tweets" and enforces the non-chronological view?

If you have a Brother MFC device with the brscan4 driver on Linux and you are desperately trying to scan over USB with sane, let me tell you to get rid of ipp-usb. It interferes with USB scanning and scanimage will only return an unhelpful "Invalid argument".

Best part during debugging: IPv6 always worked, because in ip6tables the FORWARD chain has an ACCEPT policy by default. Looking forward to nftables everywhere.

Writing this iptables rule feels stupid, but it solves the problem:
iptables -t filter -A FORWARD -i br0 -o br0 -j ACCEPT

Okay, the tutorials I followed forgot to mention this. I just found out I also had to tell Wireshark to decode as HTTP on the custom 8443 port in the protocol preferences. Now it already looks quite usable with the "http" filter.

Show thread

I know about using wireshark with SSLKEYLOGFILE to decrypt TLS traffic, but analyzing it this way is very unstructured because you can still only follow the TCP streams and not see individual HTTP requests directly.

What should I use to log HTTPS traffic to a service I host myself? I have a valid certificate and requests come from anywhere I do not control. I need something like a reverse proxy, but I want to inspect the full requests including headers and body. Any recommendations?

Waking this old MacBook from hibernation one last time before giving it to recycling. Everything not saved will be lost.

And most importantly, by using this advice when composing a thread, you make it possible to read threads on Twitter comfortably. Thanks.

By structuring a Twitter thread like this, you allow others to reply to a specific point you make. It also makes it possible to quote and retweet, because each tweet in itself has value.
