advanced networking question for Linux users 

I have a VPN which I use to remotely connect to the job, but it can only be used by boss' authorized ISP (strict rules). If I accidentally try to connect while I'm on another ISP (say, my parents' WiFi) I get cut off and reactivation requires a phone call and manual bureaucracy :blobfrowningbig:

How can I make it so that Linux automatically disables the VPN connection if I'm not using a certain network? Or if I'm using WiFi, if it makes it easier?

I'm using a KDE based distro. I'm not using openVPN, but vpnc to connect to a proprietary vpn (ugh).

Boosts welcome.

Why there is nothing similar to mdfind ( in linux that is open source?

Is not possible to make a cross-platform ui without electron nowadays?

Did you know that you can write messages with more characters that your instance allows it with #Fedilab?
Just enable the option in settings, the app will automatically split your long message in a thread. #tip

ActivityPub can be confusing and/or hard to test or develop against.

I started a new side project called FediDB to help Pixelfed and other implementations debug federation issues.

It will be launching soon, need to test DMs and Federated Stories in Pixelfed 😅

I'm eager to work with other projects on this!

Starting tomorrow I think I'll start proposing one project a day for someone to tackle, relating to my efforts to create simpler browser engines like "Rhapsode".

Yes, I've been proposing these before but now I'll focus on promoting them individually.

But regardless, please explore other ideas you might have! And please continue writing progressively-enhanced semantic HTML5!

Anyone interested?
