Tall ships (porthole)

The adventure continues!

Well, the network bridging went horribly wrong - Windows decided to use a common MAC address for all packets forwarded via the bridge, and the Netgear router in turn decided to hand out the same IP address both to Nyx and to the Raspberry Pi.

Neither was particularly impressed by this. Windows at least showed a warning message, but the Pi appeared to just sulk in the corner and not boot.

Anyway, I've changed to Windows' Internet Connection Sharing and that works much better - I can now SSH into the Pi (though I did have to change the Pi's DNS server - it seems that Windows isn't running a resolver). And trawling through the logs shows that it does at least detect the WiFi adapter:
[    2.603361] usb 1-1.3: new high-speed USB device number 4 using dwc_otg
[    2.734558] usb 1-1.3: New USB device found, idVendor=2357, idProduct=011e, bcdDevice= 2.00
[    2.734583] usb 1-1.3: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.

Do I think the EU is perfect? No, not really. Do I like what it represents? Absolutely. I will keep on liking what it represents long after the people responsible for this shambles are gone. After this evening we will simply be, less significant. Less able to change things for the better. I like that the EU was pushing standards, the environment, data security and integrity etc. Things that each and every time made them less competitive. Not because it helped them, but because it was the right thing to do.

I hate what us leaving represents. It represents a step backwards, a move away from cooperation, a race to the bottom, a "me first" attitude. Profits before values. I hate what nationalism has turned our country into. I love my country, but never at the expense of others. Nationalism as it stands today makes me less proud to be British. If you think being British is gravy and pie in a pub, fair enough, if you think it means you can tell a Polish person who has lived here for 20 years to "go home", you aren't a patriot, you're a bully.

In all the years I can vote I have never voted for what would personally benefit me. I have always voted for what I thought would do the most good. Sometimes I got lucky and it would do for both. As a country voting to leave the EU was evidence I am outnumbered in my quest for everyone. That won't stop me trying though.
