As stated in the policy for non-responsive package maintainers, I am
emailing this list to find out if anyone knows how to contact the
package maintainer (Miloš Jakubíček) for the boinc-client?
Various people have tired but so far not been successful.
I just had a thought about IoT for the future...
In a typical house for one of us, I suspect that our current
modems supply up to 25 or 30 connections when we have company, given
cellphones, desktops, laptops, pads, and whatever else our company may
be carrying, and that is not even a very large family. Gamers might be
My home is small for the US, but even in it, if I went total
IoT on the things I use, I could consume nearly 60 devices if it were
In the companies I worked for they had air-gapped the internal
systems networks from the outside networks and guest networks. But
that implies some investment in servers and modems, and is not likely
to happen in peoples homes, unless the setup, costs and maintenance are
low. Also I looked at moving my home to a cellphone solution, and
their modems generally seem to support only 10 devices. Some cable
modems have similar restrictions. Thus to accomplish this would require
two or more modems, some control software, some additional cabling, and
more network knowledge than I have right now. The hardware investment
along would likely be about $300 to do it with commercial stuff.
Could a group be formed to somehow create some kind of server node, say
with Raspberry PI or similar hardware to support a dual network,
internal and external users and local control as a third branch that
might address these issues? If it could support fibre, and ADSL, I
think it could be a really useful product in the relatively near
I am not a networking guy, although I have had some background in that
area, so my contribution is probably limited to this note. But it is
certainly something to think about.
