On today's fediverse news, people learn why you should run your own instances if you are worried about server moderation.

Yes as some will know I currently am hosted through @mastohost but if you look at their terms and conditions, they completely align with my own rules I have on this servers for those who share this server with me. In fact I just reviewed their terms of service and added several rules I agree with as well just a few minutes ago.

@chiefgyk3d @mastohost Also @beasts should never betray you.

@chiefgyk3d Yeah they are a kinda boutique little hosting company here in the UK with people you can actually talk to. No corporate bullshit.

Anyone that knows VoIP and Python and wants to help Home Assistant? I am offering $500 for someone to help us allow Home Assistant to make outbound calls https://github.com/home-assistant-libs/voip-utils/issues/17

@balloob Are there any plans to support other codecs? For instance A-Law is something that is supported on a lot of SIP doorentry systems.

Few months back Teams stopped supporting , and their nasty argument was "you can use our web app from your browser". Today I got this in my browser which is .

Unfortunately I have to use Microsoft Teams because my university and the audience all have contract with Microsoft 🙄

Yeah, keep fooling yourself that :microsoft: ❤️ :linux:

@Mehrad Will it work if you spoof user-agent?

@revk this is how SMS shows on a Ukrainian number.

alphasixtyfive,
@alphasixtyfive@fosstodon.org avatar

@revk It could be that it was marked by network as such maybe? Something like a SPAM filter?

@aaisp @revk eSIM works great. I had a few test calls and felt no difference to regular calls. If only SMS could works natively it would be a no-brainer for anyone.

alphasixtyfive,
@alphasixtyfive@fosstodon.org avatar

@aaisp @revk It is purely the ability to send and receive SMS via default apps.

@aaisp @revk I'll need to have another look but somehow my Pixel was not showing AA's number as an option.

alphasixtyfive,
@alphasixtyfive@fosstodon.org avatar

@revk @aaisp I've just tried activating eSIM in settings again and SMS worked perfectly fine both ways! The only cosmetic difference between ONSIM and other cards is that the phone number is not showing up in the popup.

alphasixtyfive, to random
@alphasixtyfive@fosstodon.org avatar

@revk It might be a good idea to list IP addresses of AA servers where HTTP request could be coming from. This way users would be able to check and make sure it is not malicious.

@revk a GET arg can leak easily. A bearer header is indeed a good idea.

@revk What would be the best way to report dead links and minor errors on @aaisp website?

I have updated this page on #SIP2SIM.

We're testing calls and SMS working on our live platform today. I don't have data usage provisioning yet, but very close to talking to testers.

@aaisp Would it be possible to assign which phone number is used from control panel?

alphasixtyfive,
@alphasixtyfive@fosstodon.org avatar

@revk @aaisp I'm thinking if a company has a bunch of SIM cards and decides to shuffle/re-assign phone numbers to them. I feel like there could be a lot of potential there.

alphasixtyfive,
@alphasixtyfive@fosstodon.org avatar

@revk @aaisp Sounds like something that should be marketed to businesses once it goes live. I hope that new provider will not decide to kill it like last one did.

This is unexpected…
I took panels off the hot tub ready for new heat pump install work.
The heating has run almost 100% since. Maybe 80% now.
So the panels matter. I had no idea how much!
So now I think adding more, some celotex, to the panels may help even more.
Update: power graphs…

@revk I'm looking into buying a thermal camera. Curious if it will show how heat is escaping during warmer seasons.

@revk Would it be possible to consider allowing to specify table in FB profile for a ping test? It looks like FB assumes table 0 by default.

It is still a mess but at least I finally got to mounting Firebrick. Superb router which runs colder than my heart. Too bad there are not enough config examples for common things but I'm planning to publish some once I get really comfortable with it. @revk

Dogs are expensive just paid $160 to groom both of my dogs. One was $100 the other was $60. Because the puppy had a lot of hair and needs actual grooming. His brother is lower maintenance and just needed a bath, nails, and a deshedding. But I can’t just drop the puppy by himself he should be with his brother.

@chiefgyk3d And I thought that my £7 haircut was expensive.

@chiefgyk3d I have a 4 y.o. daughter that exhibits the same behaviour while getting a haircut.
