Requirements The setup is nothing extraordinary: Mac, iPhone, Watch, and probably also AirPods pretty soon, and I’ve totally had enough with all the different chargers and cables and adapters sitting around my bed. I want to get rid of this mess, once and for all. And thus I have 3, seemingly very simple and obvious […]

How to fix Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Online

Since my /r/crashteamracing post has been removed almost immediately without any reason given, and when I asked about it, I received absolutely no response, I’m going to post my rambling here. I’m a player of the original PSOne CTR (yeah, I’m that old), and I actually managed to reach 100% completion with it on the […]

Local Ubuntu APT repo mirror on CentOS 7 v2

I’ve done this using apt-mirror already, but it turns out, apt-mirror has a few caveats: it’s unmaintained it requires debootstrap + chroot On top of that, I’ve been having issues enabling multi-arch for my repo.

Ubuntu 18.04 UEFI Network Installer

The workaround is extremely elegant, as always with Ubuntu: grab the mini.iso files, then add the EFI folder from the server ISO to the mix, and that’s it. Lovely, right? […]

Note: make sure to check out the revised APT repo mirror guide! So you might want to have a local mirror for your Ubuntu workstations, but you don’t want to run Ubuntu on the mirror server itself, because Ubuntu Server sucks ass. In this case, it’s really not that hard to find a way. Set […]

Fixing Killing Floor 2 Linux Server Workshop downloads

Update: killinuxfloor 1.1 released with the fix included. I’ve been doing killinuxfloor, an installer for Killing Floor 2 Server on Linux for some time, and Workshop downloads have been troublesome for quite a while. I even raised a ticket with Tripwire about a week ago, but other than the automatic confirmation e-mail, I received zero […]

Fixing eSIM activation on the iPhone

TLDR: if you accidentally delete your eSIM plan from your iPhone, and you can’t activate via the provided QR codes anymore, don’t mess around with settings, don’t reset your phone, just ask for an eSIM replacement from the phone company. Oh and make sure you have Wi-Fi while you activate it! eSIM, or embedded-SIM is […]
