Notes from setting up a PiAware (Raspberry Pi based flight tracker.

UNIX is an operating system which was first developed in the 1960s, and has been under constant development ever since.

Many operating systems use the EUI-64 algorithm to generate IPv6 addresses. This algorithm derives the last 64 bits of the IPv6 address using the MAC address. Many see this as a privacy problem. The last half of your IP address will never change, and with MAC addresses being somewhat unique, the interface ID becomes close to a unique “cookie” identifying your system.

Bits of information related to the best server operating system I’ve found.
