Did an interview for a Danish newspaper about #bufferbloat and internet connectivity. The article turned out pretty well, I think! It's in Danish and unfortunately paywalled, but just in case I know anyone with an account, here's the link (article by @LauridsHovgard):

Upgraded my phone to #LineageOS 19 (which is based on #Android 12). The UI runs noticeably smoother and the updated theme is pretty nice as well!

Now I just have to reinstate all the workarounds for the various apps that refuse to run if they think my phone is rooted 🤔🙄

If you have a kernel.org account, you can set your webfinger by using:

ssh git@gitolite.kernel.org social set @your@social.example.foo

This will let people find your fediverse account by searching for “@yourusername@kernel.org“.

Use “social help“ to see other commands.

Proper documentation forthcoming and will be on korg.docs.kernel.org once done.

Installed mastodon.el and am now able to toot from within #emacs itself - very
neat, and seems to work quite well!

As always, with Emacs, the biggest problem is the blocking network requests;
pining for multithreading...

I keep seeing lots of long-time users saying 'don't favourite posts it does nothing' but actually when you favourite my posts it makes me smile and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Right, so I guess it's time for a slightly belated #introduction

I'm a Linux kernel hacker at Red Hat, working on the networking and BPF subsystems. I maintain the sch_cake qdisc and the ath9k WiFi driver, and also dabble in userspace code, most notably the Flent network testing tool and the libxdp library.

I'm also an academic, at least in spirit. Wrote my PhD thesis on fixing #bufferbloat in wired and WiFi networks (get your free copy here: https://bufferbloat-and-beyond.net/ ), and I keep in touch with the academic world through the Red Hat Research programme.

I contribute to FLOSS for both moral and pragmatic reasons: gifting our software to the world is the way we leave this world a bit better than we found it. I consider "proprietary" to be a derogatory term, and loathe the term "IP".

Oh, and I'm the proud "father" of Marvin, the cutest teenage Rhodesian Ridgeback (that's a dog breed)!

Okay, why on earth did I think it was a good idea to start playing with this fediverse thing at such an hour? It's now 2am, and I should definitely set this aside until tomorrow! 😅🙈

Good night everyone!

If you're in the MAINTAINERS file, you can have a social.kernel.org account (but only if you need one -- no need to go around collecting fediverse accounts if you don't intend to use them). Send a request to helpdesk@kernel.org.
