Title What it's about
Imitating Matrix moderator at IRC using Atheme services This post should probably be outside of my blog, but I cannot think of appropiate way to put it to wiki.
Getting support with Matrix Matrix has many clients and servers and other projects and finding the right place to ask a question can be difficult.
OxygenOS missing notifications and how to get them back Written for OxygenOS OP3_O2_Open_7 (community build), no idea if this happens on stable builds, but it will probably start happening there.
Telegrams second chance I have blogged about Telegram a lot and I thought I would end it to leaving it, but that didn’t happen. However I MUST type about the current situation I have with it.
Note to self: adjusting locales & why I have started using my devices in en_GB, but on PCs that can have issues with different types of different locales unless some things are borrowed from other locales.
Why not Telegram or why I left it You might have read my post on why I use Telegram or something else about Telegram I have typed, so I guess I must also blog about why I left.
On Facebook/my SOME policy My wellbeing is more imporant than whatever you do at SOME and I reserve the right to ignore you.
Telegram tweets where I refer often I seem to have to tweet to Telegram often and as I refer to those tweets often, why to not have them on single post which to update now and then?
Why I use Telegram? I get often asked why do I use Telegram even if it’s known to have bad crypto. The answer is that crypto doesn’t always matter.
The three days of dramas with Antergos I am not emotionless robot and I am able to make mistakes like anyone else. I am not a superhuman.
How to private message people on Telegram without getting reported for spam This should be obvious, but is apparently not as at time of writing I have blocked and reported around 95 people for spam.
Autostarting tmux + WeeChat This is another note-to-self post, but I think other people might also be wondering this.
Short quickstart on tmux & WeeChat for GUIless support Sometimes you don’t have GUI when you need remote support, luckily you don’t need it even if you have only one device.
dnssec-trigger on Ubuntu (MATE 16.04) I haven’t ever gotten dnssec-trigger to work, but today based on IRC discussion, I finally understood what was wrong.
Tunnelbroker.net & ASUS routers I am typing this, because there is a lot of misinformation on this, especially about the dynamic DNS part.
`SSID_optout_nomap` Anxiety is now focusing to WLAN mapping & key sharing and how easy it is to locate people.
I moved to Lauttasaari, Helsinki As this blog is so depressing and full of Kotka, I should mention that I moved to Lauttasaari (~5km from Helsinki centre) a few days ago.
Hau/Mau A frequently asked question: “what does hau mean?” To avoid repeating myself, I will explain it here.
Changing Display Manager (login screen) with Antergos Also applies to Arch & other distributions based on it, how do you change the display manager, aka login screen.
Using reflector in Arch my way Reflector is a tool that checks the most recently upgraded Arch Linux mirrors and ranks them by speed and saves them to your mirrorlist.
Quickstart with Atheme IRC Services (& forks) for end users Atheme IRC Services is the most used IRC service package. However many people have difficulties with registering a channel and then managing it, which I attempt to help with here. I start by explaining NickServ registration (and as a bonus HostServ) and then move to channel management and you just cannot talk about that without mentioning GroupServ too…
How to act around trans woman? So you have discovered that I am trans? What should you do? It has nothing to do with you, so do nothing, just treat me like you would any other woman.
Leaving IRCnet due to unwanted PMs and no way to filter them IRCnet is dying network, one of the first ones, and it has no centralized management, so nothing new ever happens there.
IPv6 There appears to be a lot of confusion on IPv6 and in this post I try to clear it a little.
Feelings or what is left unsaid about Kotkan keskuskoulu If you wanted to know about my current life situation, read something else as I have no life and this posts talks only about the haunting past.
My ufw (Ubuntu/Uncomplicated Firewall) config This post describes my UFW config and is here so I find it from somewhere and with hope that I am told if someone notices something terriby insecure here and is able to offer suggestions.
Trying to be a better op If ops are attacked, the channel is also hurt as much as if users were attacked. Thus I am also taking action if op is attacked.
Private/Secret IRC channels People often wonder about this and I thought that I could probably write about this, how do you make IRC channel secret/private, either hiding it from other people or not letting others in.
(Un)Setting umodes As I have written more about umodes than I thought, I am breaking the posts setting/unsetting is documented here and I will link here from other posts.
WeeChat: ignoring with /filter Everyone knows the /ignore command, but there is also /filter which I feel is superiour.
Graduation As my blog is so full of suicidality and depression and how I won’t graduate, I probably must inform here that I have graduated according to YLE News.
My systemd-networkd setup This is happy post so probably useless, but my blog is always so unhappy… Anyway, systemd-networkd on my hosts.
A little more on my life & background on bots More on my life and a little background on bots; also trigger warning about probably everything…
irc & ircs links Yet another note-to-self post, but these links are confusing, how do you make proper irc:// or ircs:// link?
Installing ZNC on Ubuntu from PPA Many people seem to be installing ZNC using some weird instructions and don’t ever upgrade after that. This is yet another unofficial install guide, but with this you should be able to upgrade too.
umode +g part 2: Why I don't acknowledge your existense You might want to read this even if you don’t have any idea what IRC is. Why I am not reacting to your attempts to PM me if I don’t know you? Simple, all results are bad.
ChatSpike-style IRC network management ChatSpike is the IRC network that is home to InspIRC and you might have heard about it and that it has many issues.
IRC over TLS is not pointless IRC over TLS is not pointless unless you only worry about things that you cannot affect at all. SSL is pointless, because of POODLE.
Note to self on partitioning This post is mainly for me to document this. I usually have only / and /home partitions (swapfile is on /), but UEFI also requires separate /boot/efi and it probably doesn’t hurt to train myself into making it on older device.
New biography I felt like my biography (that less than 140 characters thing you see at all my profiles) had been unchanged for some time and had some issues, so I changed it.
Scum TRIGGER WARNING
Using umode +g / blocking unauthorized PMs Since the Limnoria episode I have been blocking PMs from everyone, because multiple people thought that as I am not part of any those communities anymore, the best way to get support is PMing me which is wrong.
My ZNC config Some time ago I thought that I could write about this (or at least my issue tracker has open issue about this and as I am not sleeping, I can probably write about this…)
Keep the ops opped Why I think that you should keep the ops opped instead of following freenode’s recommendations.
WeeChat: easy instructions for using SASL This seems to confuse many WeeChat users, so I will try to explain it more simply as I am repeating myself everywhere about this same thing.
Why I show channels that I am on at IRC? Or why am I using umode -iI and thus showing all channels that I am on at IRC? So you can find channels that may interest you if we have similar interests.
Little on my life currently <!–
Don't use DCC & How to disable it DCC was way to send files and chat without having IRC server in the between. It’s not very common nowadays and what is done nowadays is uploading images etc. to social media services or web servers or using other file transfer protocols.
Stay away from Anope IRC Services This post is my experiences with developers of Anope IRC Services and with this kind of behaviour I encourage everyone to not use it in any network where it can be avoided.
ZNC 1.6.0 & SSL certificate verification TL;DR: if you don’t verify SSL certificates, don’t use SSL!
Getting help from network operators with channel issues when ops are away In case you wish network operators to help you when your channel operators are away, please authorize them to do so. You can do this simply by command /msg ChanServ flags #channel $oper +vhoirtAe. Note that this assumes that your network uses Atheme with exttarget $oper loaded.
Channels & Hostmask groups: A basic Howto @Annwenn got me opering at her network after long pause with my opering. She also named this blogpost and requested me to write this and I don’t have any better place where to put this, but I am starting with other talk before getting to the subject.

Mitä puhelimet tekisivät jos kelloja siirrettäisiin pysyvästi En tiedä ajatteleeko tai pelkääkö kukaan tätä seurausta kellojen siirrosta pysyvästi, mutta kirjoittelen siitä nyt kuitenkin.
Sähköpostia lakivaliokunnalle Toivottavasti tämä viesti on edes jotenkuten järkevä, se olisi ollut vaikea kirjoittaa ilmankin Ketipinorin vaikutusta ja sitä on nyt liian myöhäistä muuttaa.

RE: Kontula ja häpeän ruoska En yleensä puhu blogissani muien asioista, mutta tämä aihe menee liian lähelle, joten koen, että minun on pakko ottaa tähän aiheeseen kantaa jollakin tavalla.
Hiukan minusta ja elämästäni Olen 19-vuotias transsukupuolinen nainen, minulla on Aspergerin oireyhtymä ja olen aseksuaali. Tämä aiheuttaa minulle kaikenlaisia ongelmia, joista tulen nyt taas kertoman.
