I had to set up access to a Hikvision NVR on local network. Port forward from the public IP of ISP was done. My job was setting port forwarding on Mikrotik router which was connected to the NVR.
It was a lot of hours wasted until I figured it out from lots of forum reading and YouTube videos watching 😀
/ip firewall filter
add action=dst-nat chain=dstnat dst-address=192.168.100.115 dst-port=58000 \
protocol=tcp to-addresses=192.168.88.3 to-ports=8000
add action=dst-nat chain=dstnat dst-address=192.168.100.115 dst-port=56911 \
log=yes protocol=tcp to-addresses=192.168.88.3 to-ports=6911
dst-address had to be the IP address of the router from the WAN side. Check in Quick Set
I was looking for a kinda tiling window manager and a colleague recommended me Magnet with which I’m satisfied. Simple and useful app. It’s worth its price.
the main role of reading is improving your model of the world to more accurately reflect reality so that you can make better decisions.
The reason for reading a book is not to be able to spit back facts at a cocktail party — it’s to shape the way you think.
“The average business person spends less than 5% of their day in flow. If you could increase that to 15%, overall workplace productivity would double,”
“The brain can’t tell the difference between physical consequences and emotional risk,” says Kotler. “Taking social risks is the same as physical risks.”
“In Silicon Valley, the idea is to fail fast or fail forward,” he says. “If you’re not giving employees space to fail, you’re not giving them space to risk. Move fast and break things. Engage in rapid experimentation. High consequences will drive flow and you get further faster.”
This week while copying some of my dotfiles (due vim and zsh configuration) to a new remote host (dedicated server) of a new client I had to remove the private stuff (mainly aliases) from my .zshrc. Only now did the muse hit me to split the file and leverage the
source (import, require, include) functionality.
So I moved the host specific and private stuff from .zshrc and added the following 2 lines after
[[ -f .zshrc_priv ]] && source .zshrc_priv
[[ -f .zshrc_host ]] && source .zshrc_host
After editing .zshrc and moving some lines into
.zshrc_host I also commented the files header to be reminded about their purpose in the future 😀
# Sourced by .zshrc
# Private settings due public version control
alias vps='TERM=xterm-256color autossh -M 0 mike@vps' # host vps set in .ssh/config
alias vps_tunnel='autossh -f -M 0 -T -N -R 10022:localhost:22 mike@vps'
# Sourced by .zshrc
# Host specific settings
Next I gonna separate some vim plugin specific code, too, to have a copyable (Plug & Play) config.
You’ve worked out an efficient way of living your life, but you end up seeing the same people because they’re also following their own routines. Why not make your network slightly more inefficient? Go to a bathroom on a different floor, get your morning coffee from a different place, park in a different spot. You should encounter a new network of people.
Another way we get stuck in ruts is through filtering. We do this automatically and immediately. The minute we meet someone, we look at them and decide “You’re interesting” or “You’re not interesting” or “You’re relevant” or “You’re not relevant.”
When someone recently did something for you, did you just reply with a “Thank you,” “thx” or “ty”? Next time, say “Let me know if I can ever help you” or “I look forward to collaborating again.” Sentences like these can reinforce our ties with other people.
