Contract system administrator since time out of mind. I can also read your code!

comment Why can't Chromium connect to http://[::1]:8080/ (i.e. IPv6 localhost)?
Works for me on Fedora and I didn't have to do anything. It's probably something peculiar to the way the Debian package maintainers built it.

comment Cannot curl webserver from outside network
I would guess that your home router is forwarding to the wrong local IP address. Check carefully!

comment Actual Public IP different from Public IP shown on ip lookup
@CorrosiveKid You can't. You will have to use IPv6 (which your ISP should have also provided you already).

comment Ping Global IPv6 address on Ubuntu VM
You can't normally bridge to a wireless client interface at all. The access point will refuse to talk to any other MAC address than the real client. VirtualBox does a bunch of nasty hackery to make it sort-of-work for IPv4. But IPv6 is a much cleaner protocol in which nasty hackery is discouraged or even impossible.

comment What is the little twist in this floppy ribbon cable for?
Certain non-PC-compatible systems (like the Radio Shack Color Computer) did actually use floppies without the cable twist, but required manually setting the jumpers, and could indeed use four drives at once. While this hack allows for the end user to not have to mess with jumpers, it also restricts the system to two floppy drives.

comment IPv6 upgrade broke my SPF?
Did you add your IPv6 address to your SPF record? And everyone has to learn IPv6. It isn't going away; IPv4 is going away.

There's no obvious reason for this. What changes have you made to your DNS records recently?

comment Can Wine emulate Windows95?
And you'll need an older version of wine. Current versions (I checked wine 1.7) report the oldest Windows version they will report to applications as Windows XP.
