My external hard drive is failing. It has been faulty for a while, not worthy for backups. Might get a new drive soon so I'd be able to save any data from it that is worth saving. Had to run fsck on it just in case so bad sectors could be found and marked as needed. I also bought an usb 3 card so those checks would complete sooner.

My internet died today

The primary isp connection I use to connect to the internet just suddently stopped working. It appears it's an issue related to my area (city) and I'm only able to use mobile phone internet that has limited data. Worked for a short while, then - gone.
Edit: It's back. This was a temporary downtime. Fixed on isp side.

Youtube is buggy as always. It's category bar is dissappearing from the top of the page most of the times and is not getting fixed no matter how many reports I send about it being broken.

Youtube Full Screen is broken when using Theater Mode

This morning I noticed that screen would turn blank with audio still playing in background as soon as YouTube player were switched to full screen, I thought my pc was broken, almost was ready to reboot it on the spot. Then I found that the theater mode would be the cause. It seems to be a yet another bad youtube updade, will have to wait till they fix it and avoid the theater mode wherever possible.

Update: It appears that this YouTube bug has just recently been fixed, I don't encounter any new issues while using YouTube in fullscreen when the player is in the theater mode.

rm -rf --no-preserve-root /

Trying to install an old Ubuntu Linux 10.04 LTS version and make it usable along currently running Ubuntu 22.04 LTS would fail as it would lead to dependency hell and other problems when trying to install video drivers. Just by installing base system, default kernel (2.6.x) and networking components the system would not boot unless booted from external usb with old bootloader installed on it. Also if target partition was formatted from modern system the bootloader would not install to any drive nor create its config files. It would still not work as the screen would not show anyhing unless the backported kernel (3.0.x) were installed from the repositories. It would require proprietary nvidia driver on graphical interface as open source driver would not work with my monitor as I found eariler. And after installing a newer kernel version that would work with current bootloader (from a deb file other than what is available on repositories) the nvidia driver installation would still fail as no kernel headers would be found at the time. Trying to install kernel header deb files would not work unless dpkg was updated to a version newer than available on the repositories. After upgrading dpkg and installing kernel headers the kernel modules would fail to build as it would not work with current c compiler, trying upgrade it would require manually downloading and installing required debs, and it might lead to dependency hell not mentioning some debs that would not be available to download ending with a system w/o working graphics. As I was trying to find such packages I ended by running the rm -rf --no-preserve-root /  just out of frustration since I was unable to find them online :\ Also later I found that even backported 3.0.x nvidia kernel modules still wouldn't build as such kernel might be incompatible and/or driver would be broken. Conclusion: don't try to install a newer kernel from packages not coming in repositories and then try to install graphics drivers as it might lead to many problems in the future. Also don't use backported kernel as it would not be compatible with provided nvidia driver. Use virtual machine instead if needed.

YouTube was very unstable today

I noticed a horrible browser lag when using youtube. Digging deeper I found that it was caused by the site itself and not an addon. It would cause an insane cpu and memory usage rise upon page reload, the only solution would be to kill the browser. I also suspected an adblock bug but disabling it on yt didn't help much, where other addons were also disabled.

My primary monitor just started to malfunction

It would show a white picture with vertical bars on near middle right of the screen. Had to to use an old vga monitor not fully compatible with my current software which caused me alot of annoyance. Had to uninstall old nvidia driver as it would not detect this monitor correctly, installed open source alternative, and added a script that sets correct login resolution and rate as automattic detection would not set correct one resulting in monitor showing an error. Not mentioning display settings showing modes not properly supported it.

Loforo is not reachable on my VPN

Just stopped working. All the traffic is directed to blocked.hetzner.com when checking through the traceroute. Didn't do anything too bad just suddently got blocked or some other error I don't know.]

Edit: Loforo's back. Probably was temporary or some1 seen my message on some site. This is annoying. Can't traceroute the site properly though.

My old router died

Had to replace it with a new model provided by my internet service provider as my old one suddently stopped working properly in the middle of the day. Coudn't reset it defaults, couldn't access it's management page, wouldn't even boot properly. Also computer would be exposed to external ip, connection would drop if another client was connected, totally unusable.
