Having cancer is not a fight or a battle, it is about having luck or misfortune

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/12/10

It has been a while after my last post about me having cancer. No, I am not giving up. But I am having the regular fear of the upcoming checks: did the metastases return, or do I have the luck to outlive some 30% of my peer group.

The last metastases surgery has been slightly more than a year ago. A year from now, that percentage hopefully will be 50% and slowly increase over time until about 90% in some 9 years from now.

At year’s end, I will know for sure.

Below are some links on, mostly Dutch but with English abstract, articles about the mental side of having cancer, or having survived it for now.

The biggest lie I tell myself is not about new years resolutions.

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/01

The biggest lie I tell myself is “I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it”

It’s likely older, but the oldest reference I could find was 2012 [WayBack].

So before I forget:

Happy New Year everyone!

With the above quote, it is no coincidence I started my blog even earlier (in 2009): it’s my off-line memory, way better readable than my hand-writing and indexed by various search engines.

Fritzbox 7490 ISDN landline and intenral ISDN S0 bus links

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/08/08

Somehow WordPress.com failed to post it on the scheduled date 20150331, not sure why.

Though ISDN has been phased out in The Netherlands as and almost phased out in Germany, you can still use end user Terminal Equipment on the internal S-bus.

Since scheduling the post for 2015, the same information as the original diagram below appeared in text form on Wikipedia and there it also adds TAE connector information: Fritz!Box: Belegung der kombinierten DSL-Telefon-Buchse – Wikipedia

Die Anschlussbelegung der Kombibuchse ist wie folgt:[44]

  • Pin 1: ISDN 1a
  • Pin 2: ISDN 1b
  • Pin 3: analog La
  • Pin 4: DSL
  • Pin 5: DSL
  • Pin 6: analog Lb
  • Pin 7: ISDN 2a
  • Pin 8: ISDN 2b

Der RJ-45-Stecker am grauen DSL-Zweig des Y-Kombikabels zeigt folgende Belegung:[44]

  • Pin 4: DSL
  • Pin 5: DSL

Die übrigen Pins sind unbenutzt.

Am schwarzen Telefonzweig ist der RJ-45-Stecker folgendermaßen belegt:

  • Pin 1: analog La
  • Pin 2: frei
  • Pin 3: ISDN 2a
  • Pin 4: ISDN 1a
  • Pin 5: ISDN 1b
  • Pin 6: ISDN 2b
  • Pin 7: frei
  • Pin 8: analog Lb

Somit ist ein direkter Anschluss an ISDN möglich, für analoge Anschlüsse liegt für Deutschland ein Adapter auf TAE bei:

  • Pin 1 RJ-Buchse auf Pin 1 TAE
  • Pin 8 RJ-Buchse auf Pin 2 TAE

Ein normales Kabel mit TAE-Stecker und sechspoligem RJ-Stecker, wie es für den Anschluss analoger Telefone an eine TAE-Dose verwendet wird, funktioniert nicht.

Bei entbündelten Anschlüssen (ohne analoges oder ISDN-Telefon) kann ein direktes Kabel verwendet werden.

Das Kabel für deutsche Anschlüsse:

  • Pin 4 RJ-Stecker auf Pin 1 TAE
  • Pin 5 RJ-Stecker auf Pin 2 TAE

Fritz!box 7590 interface extremely slow : fritzbox

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/08/05

I tried the solution in [Wayback/Archive.is] Fritz!box 7590 interface extremely slow : fritzbox (remove the some 30-40 unused machines from the network overview), but it didn’t matter: since Fritz!OS 7.x, the Fritz!Box 7490 UI is just very very slow: each page takes 10+ seconds to load.

Hopefully I can get rid of these and move to pfSense based hardware eventually.
