    That packet loss.

    @BadFox Yeah at this point I'm wondering if the ethernets cables aren't just pointed in the air waiting for something to happen.

    @Jilano I was right under the router, so I should NOT have had that many issues.

    Just out of curiosity, why are you logged in as root?

    @KasperNS I see no reason not to be, all I'm doing is coding and running make after tweaking others' code (which errors if I'm not root at one point and later errors if I am) and using dd to write images to drives and all kinds of other good stuff that apparently requires root.

    I'm sick of typing "sudo" at the beginning of every command, basically.

    @Parzi there are just so many security reasons, as why not to run as root.

    But then please just tell me that you not accessing it over SSH, as root. I know that to be fair that to many people, they're not more likely to get hacked by running as root, but it's just such as easy step, to not do it.

    80% WTF... Are there squirrels chewing on the Ethernet cables??

    I've never seen an %80 loss on an available network... Just... How?!

    @stisch @lxmcf Dunno. This was a WLAN-only network that's usually a fuckton faster than the "public" network (300 kB/s on public to 2-9MB/s on the private network) but both networks had this issue.

    @KasperNS nope, local. I'm not ENTIRELY stupid!

    Also, even if I were compromised, my Fedora install is broken and there's nothing but a fork of the Linux kernel and some shitty thrown-together Python modules they'd be anywhere near interested in. Firefox dumps all its shit when it's quit and saves no passwords, plus it does a TRIM every like 3-6 hours, so... what, gonna steal my public repos?

    Oh, and roms. Lots and lots of illegal roms. And malware older than 2010. Again, nothing not reasonably easy to get themselves.

    @Parzi fair enough. I guess for me it just boils down to principle then at this point
