My internet connection got installed today 🎉

What's a good WiFi name? My last one was called "WiFi Against Humanity" but want something else :meowthinking:

"Milky Way" for my home appliances
"Andromeda" for the guest network

Now to make one of those chalkboard drawings of a WiFi sign and the passwortf next to it :meowgiggle:

@kunsi Without looking at your profile: you sound like a fellow German. 😆

oof that's some serious speed

beware if you download too fast you might travel in time

@moiety Wow-whee. Nice.

Its been a while since I tested mine and I was kinda expecting better. I think I get better results than this when cabled, but who knows. I just use WiFi.

So many ISPs here restrict upload so much compared to what they offer download. Idk why.

@matt they gave me a brand new WiFi 6 modem :meow:. The only difference cabled would make at this point is a slightly better download speed? Will test later when I install my server. Do you get fiber in Oslo?

@moiety Pretty sure we have fiber. I think I need a new modem and also to make sure the provider (which recently changed hands) isn't fucking with it.

My subscription says it should be Broadband 500 - which is 500 down and 500 up for fiber (or 20 mbps for what they call hybridfiber).

Speeds I get are more like their Broadband 200 package which is 200 down and 20 up.


Glad I checked.

@moiety I was able to order a new modem on their website within a few clicks for no cost. Nice.

Will give that a shot and if it doesn't help, I'll write a strongly worded email of complaint. 😆

@twolovelytrees right?! You can get 1 Gbps download for ten euro more. But like, do I even need that?

@Juju you can come over to use it anytime you want :fuchsia:

@moiety The wifi on my phone hotspot is called HelpI'mStuckInAPhone

Mine is granite-0001 because the hostname of my router is granite (all machines are names after rocks or crystals)

@freyja_wildes oh I like that, I've named it "Milky Way" for now. A lot of my devices are named after space related things.

Yeah, it's a thing I've started after a small research experience when I was in engineering school. Worked for a month or two in research (not good, but 🤷‍♀️ ).
They were naming all their machines after natural phenomenon (hurricane, storm...).
I thought it was a really good practice to have a theme and stick to it

The "bad" thing about my theme is that I am not knowledged in mineralogy

@moiety I will never forget the time I looked in my computer’s WiFi menu and saw “Tell My WiFi Love Her”

A German comedian,Karl Valentin, famous pre and post WW2, made a sketch about a dialog between police officer and passenger claiming his name was Wrdlbrmft.
I'm looking for a vid about it

Yesterday's pop culture, still influential. He created lot of puns, that became what we now call memes.

@wauz @moiety Hah, reminds me of the "schmilblick" which is a nonsensical word but was said by a French comedian to be a very important object ^^
