Ask HN: What's with the DIY state of the art long-range Wi-Fi?

Hey,

I lead the technical efforts at one of the charities in Ukraine; we're now trying to rebuild connectivity for people in some of the areas where much of the civilian infrastructure was destroyed and Starlink® is not a viable option, or perhaps "not-to-be easily scaled option."

The world of long-range Wi-Fi is a wild one!

We are now trying to evaluate the cost of a point-to-point mesh network using commodity hardware, and so far have only experimented with Raspberry hardware to work the antenna, and some Atheros AR9331-based SoC's. The idea is to make a single device that can act as both a relay station, as well as an actual hotspot, it then can be placed in line-of-sight configuration to potentially cover huge areas (the accepted performance would be anywhere from 0.1-1 Mbit/s point-to-point over anywhere from 5-20km. We are aiming to bring the cost of such configuration down to $100 per unit at least. Hopefully, we also wouldn't need to do so and somebody else could do the whole thing for us at a similar price... Where would you start, i.e. with the vendors, as well as the commodity hardware, firmware that should work best for a setup like this? Bonus points; if it can be somewhat be aware of the current happenstance. In terms of bleed from Electronic warfare deployed by the enemy in Ukraine; it has to work hopefully in adversarial environment!

Best regards, Ilya The Stone Cross Foundation

Ask HN: What Next After Ubuntu?

I have been running Ubuntu on servers and desktops for around twenty years, but ongoing changes to their platform have shaken my faith in its future. The first serious breach of trust was forcing their users to use their untrustable snaps (e.g. Firefox on 22.04), but the last straw for me has been breaking apt upgrades on 20.04 LTS in order to push their Pro agenda.

I am looking to replace Ubuntu with something that will be stable and supported for the next twenty years, without being ruined by corporate interests. What are my best options?

Ask HN: Which book would you recommend for learning Python in detail?

Hi, I know some programming. I know C and some python as well. I have built projects with python but every time I work with python, I feel like python is made on the simple basic structure and I don't know that. I find myself constantly looking for small things as well, I feel like I really don't know the internals of pythons. Which book would you recommend that you go beyond the syntax and shows how things works on a basic level so that I can get build up some intuition while working with python. Forgive me if I failed to express myself.
