Very grateful that @ripper did drill a hole for a cable duct in my flat so I can improve my network topology.
As it is common in old buildings the walls are pretty unpredictable when drilling.

We could create another.

i like how marketing folks are like "our patented proprietary technology" as if that's some sort of good thing, not something that makes me instantly afraid of whatever trash fire closed product is trying to be sold here

also, ubuntu server 20.04 installer is very convenient to use, with things like auto-importing ssh public keys from your github account if you want
