DIY Sound

Sometimes you just hate what industry has don with the sound and start building your own stuff. For one, I didn't like open source DAW alternatives as all of them are missing something: Arour's MIDI is terrible for electronic music, loop recording is missing in Muse, ZRythm is stereo only …

FreeBSD PF and Dummynet

In 14-CURRENT there is now support for dummynet in PF. That means that you can slow down packets based on some criteria. MacOS users probably know how this works as that OS got support for PF+dummynet years ago. For example, you can do the following in /etc/pf.conf …

FreeBSD Dual Stack Firewall

The idea is very simple: everything works. But what is "everything" in this case? I want my host and jails to have IPv4 and IPv6 address, register those addresses in DNS and all to be accessible in the network and via Internet. To make my life easier, I programmed Reggae …

Ne mogu vise da ćutim

Ne pišem na srpskom iz prostog razloga: želim da me što više ljudi razume. Međutim, ono što me tišti su neki ljudi odavde i ako ikada nabasaju na ovaj post želim da ga dobro razumeju. Pošto nemam plan pisanja, možda će biti o jednoj, možda o više osoba, ali svakako …
