@balibebas strange. So mastlab was not compatible with the previous version of Mastodon?

@nbering @paco a significant element of the charges against Marcus was not only that he wrote Kronos, but sold is with the knowledge of how it would be used. I don’t think there is a good metaphor in the physical world - for example creating and selling lock picks (or a gun) could result in someone using them to rob a bank. But that is not how those items are intended to be used. A banking Trojan, by contrast, has basically one purpose: committing bank fraud.

Thinking about the case of Marcus Hutchins (@MalwareTech) who just plead guilty to writing banking Trojans. Wanted to do a poll to get people's opinions about that. Personally, I think that even if he did write the malware, it was so long ago and he seems to have made changes in his life that it seems a bit much to have held him in the US this long.

Yay, looks like .exchange got upgraded to the most recent version. We now have the right (or capability) to vote! Do you find this....

@JohnsNotHere @m4iler @TheGibson @entreprelife my house, at times, is home is a LOT of devices spread out over 3 floors and 500 sq meters. So I opted for the HD access points, but I have colleagues with the UAP AC pro or LR and get on just fine. I would recommend getting the router (USG), a switch (USW 8 60w) and two UAP AC Pros or LRs

@TheGibson @m4iler @entreprelife my in-laws were here last weekend. I was bored out of my mind and created a whole set of VLANs and moved network devices to those vlans from my phone while on the couch listening to complaints about back aches.

@entreprelife @m4iler my house had phone drops wired throughout. It was built pre-crazy internet time, but they did use cat 5 for the phone line runs. So I use that.

Their APs will work as a mesh just fine, though, with no cable uplink. Of course, that adds some latency and ties up some airtime.

@m4iler @entreprelife if you have an phone, a tablet, and a laptop in a small apartment, I wouldn’t bother. But if you have a house of any size and a herd of devices to connect, it’s really good stuff.

@m4iler @entreprelife
Expandability: not many other consumer priced WiFi gear has the ability to add access points that aren’t also routers. I have 4 APs around my house now and can add more if needed for a marginal cost. Oh and they are PoE powered.
Manageability: this is hard to explain. Creating vlans that extend all the way to a WiFi ssid is trivial. I can turn networks ports on or off or create vlans or reboot APs from my phone. I am not doing this justice.
Last, is just works.
