my wireless AP card seems to have broken, it's not showing up in pfsense even though it used to work on the same installation.

I guess it broke while I was moving or something

I guess this is a sign that I should just buy a standalone AP instead

just setup my pfSense router again.

spent 30 minutes trying to work out why my computer wouldn't connect to WAN, but it turned out I had the default route set to the IP of the switch and not the router.

i moved into my new place for this year

internet sucks :(

Just boarded a flight, they weighed cabin baggage which I've never experienced before. Had to abandon a bag with my GPU and other things rip

it's still raining here. it's been almost 2 weeks of rain now

they recently found the bodies of two guys who drowned in the floods...

lots of homes got flooded, it's good to see people out in the community helping people who had water get into their home

the river is still pretty high. this area is supposed to be a park

my house survived the "worst" of the floods so that's relieving.

also there are a lot of people who have been inundated, with water up to their roofs and stuff. makes me feel kinda sad that this has happened to my community, but kinda glad that I still have my house

army got deployed to help rescue people off of their roofs with boats.

there is 2,000,000 L of water leaving the dam per second, and since they opened it 43.2 billion liters have been let out

assuming everyone drinks 4L per day (which is a lot), that's enough water to feed 10.8 billion people for a day

we're still ok at my house, looks like not evacuating paid off.

gonna stay up until someone wakes up in case our house suddenly gets fucked.

Dean boosted

"on the forecast tomorrow, heavy rain in townsville..."


they are opening the dam floodgates 100% in 2 hours, not sure if we're going to evacuate yet.

it is absolutely pouring down rain outside our house

a few places have already been flooded, and my home is near a bend in the river so if they're gonna open the floodgates I'll have to evacuate

not looking forward to this, considering it's going to rain until thursday

my city has been declared a state of emergency because of the rain that's been going on for about 6 days. the dam's at 219% (42m I think) and once it reaches ~44m they will have to fully open the floodgates.

it's currently outputting 900 cubic m per second, but when they open it it will be outputting 2300 cubic m per second.
