@AFresh1 @phessler @canadianbryan Hah. I bet there's a Perl script involved that needs a patch :)

@gonzalo Nice, will move here or is it remote? Come and hang out with @phessler and me!

@phessler Always taking August and December off, eh?

@Vigdis @AFresh1 But I don't know either why it starts up an editor by default. I could live without that for sure.

@AFresh1 @Vigdis I put such comments to link to CVEs or relevant issues in upstream bug trackers. Gives readers some context.

The idea is to simulate a 10Mbit/s modem in front of an #OpenBSD firewall (#APU2) and make sure you can download stuff, watch youtube and skype. All at the same time! :-)
