Hawkeye is a book I consistently love. It’s one of my favorites every month.
Iron Fist is one I’m new to. Comixology had a sale on The Immortal Iron Fist a while back and I read it and loved it (he punches a train and it explodes!!!). Not surprising, since it’s the same creative team for the most part as Hawkeye (Matt Fraction and David Aja).

Having a helluva time trying to plan out a network setup for the potential WestGAP office move.

Going straight into it, I’d like to have a fully functioning network for a small charity, something that doesn’t need too much upgrading in the future, but something that isn’t too expensive to begin with.

The issue with that is when you cut the cost, you lose out on a lot of beneficial features, but enterprise level gear isn’t an option here.

The first thing I want to look into is the router. I’m looking to get something that I can load either DD-WRT or OpenWRT onto, unlocking a bunch of functions that’d really help us.

I could go with the good old WRT54G, which is still used at large in the open firmware community, but the issue with that is that it only supports 802.11G wireless and maxes out at 100Mbps on the ethernet side. It is pretty cheap, however.

Next up is the D-Link DIR-615, which goes up to 802.11N, but still maxes out at 100Mbps wired.

The third option is the ASUS RT-N16. It has 802.11N and Gigabit ethernet, but comes at double the price of the WRT54G.

There are plenty more supported models, but they start going way beyond the cost of the ASUS model.

The VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) configuration via DD-WRT option would save a bunch of money as you’d normally have to order in additional, somewhat expensive, equipment to be able to segment the network. It’d allow us to setup each port on the router to point to a different VLAN and connect a switch to each port to allow multiple wired connections on each VLAN, if required.

The main reason behind this is to separate a guest network from an internal staff network. Guests could come visit, use the terminals we have available or connect their own gear and access the Internet without having access to any files stored on the WestGAP network, held on a different VLAN. Some routers also allow the creation of multiple Wireless VLANs - great because most people carry phones and tables on them nowadays instead of laptops.

I’m really enjoying planning this all out, even if I’m making it seem like it’s a hassle - it’s not. I’m not great with anti-poverty advice, but helping the rest of the charity by giving them a functioning infrastructure, along with having Internet access made available to service users, really makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

“kill myself” was the most common answer when they contemplated the possibility of life as a girl

Yeah, tell me again how misogyny “isn’t real” and men and boys actually “love”, “like” and “respect the female sex”? This is how deep misogynistic propaganda runs in this world. Men and boys are so viscerally contemptuous of anything or anyone who/that is female or feminine, or perceived to be female or feminine, that they would rather commit suicide than to be associated with— or become a member of— the female sex. As Germaine Greer said, “women have no idea how much men hate them.”

they would rather die then be treated how they treat us
