The #OpenBSD iwm #wifi driver has just made its first transmissions on a 40MHz channel.

Measured a peak of 190Mbps with tcpbench :flan_racer:

This is still in early stages. Configuring the device to use this feature was the easy part. Still need to implement switching the feature on and off when the access point changes its configuration, letting Tx rate selection pick the best channel width, showing the config in userland, and whatnot... :flan_think:

Don't go an reply people with "buT tHiS wEbSiTe HaS JaVaScRiPt, I hAvE nOnE lEfT tHo I CaNt ReAd It" for linking to some website.

Make a temporary exception in your blocker, open in an incognito window / separate profile, or just don't read.

Yeah, some websites suck, big news, no shit.

A butterfly taking a bumblebee under its wing, playing taxi for a fly and taking a bug for a walk. Busy things, those butterflies... CW for #macro #insects they're cute, though. Promise! :)

User interface failures: not just for computers.

I drive on dark roads, where all you see are taillights. This will end badly.

Something up think about: If more of us opted for school lunches, it would ensure the kids with the most need have access to high quality food, and our own kids would probably be better fed and more confident making food choices.

I am grateful once again for Fred Clark's insightful explanation of, "The poor you always have with you." It's not a release from the duty of generosity—it’s a reminder of our collective responsibility for injustice and suffering, and our ongoing obligation to lighten the burdens of others.

This seems like quite the marketing misfire…

Clowns lurked outside schools to promote a speech academy. Horrified parents called the police.

Like many pastors, I take one day off during the week, as comp time for working Sunday. Despite having mixed feelings about the return of in-person school for the kiddos, I will say that today I have a level of quiet I have not experienced in 18 months!

Can we do away with the anti-pattern of presenting a huge box that looks like a login, but is "Create Account" with a little tiny link that says, "Already a member? Sign in here."

Can we at least recognize that if I entered my valid credentials in the "Create Account" box you can just log me in.

I really hate it when a business treats the paying customer as a second-rate citizen and crafts their landing page with only potential customers in mind.

It's been long enough that I felt comfortable setting the church domain's DMARC record to p=reject. Very satisfying to see the first report from Google that shows spoofed messages from IP addresses in Portugal and Morocco were caught this way.

COVID 

An (occasionally) unmasked, unvaccinated teacher infected half the students in the classroom. Delta is not here to play. Take it seriously: get vaccinated, and mask up around children especially, please!

I’m grateful for colleagues and friends who are testifying at school board meetings around the country in favor of masking. I’m doubly grateful that it’s not even a question in my town, and that I don’t have to subject myself to this nonsense.
