Ever since I was 7 years old, I've been interested in computers, the Internet, and more recently, cybersecurity and social engineering.

I strive to become an excellent cybersecurity engineer. I'm always eager to learn and love meeting new people with similar interests. Feel free to drop me a DM!

For more information, please check out my personal blog: L1Cafe.blog.

You can set complex scheduling options, either by time of day, battery level, non-BOINC CPU usage, mouse and keyboard activity and so on. This way, it won't take up all your resources when you're compiling or playing videogames.

You can also configure it to only take a percentage of the CPU, a specific core count, or only allow it to run in bursts.

Honestly I ran out of ideas for my blog, and I don't know what to post. I could keep posting CTFs but it seems kinda unappealing to me... Suggestions?

Sometimes I get the feeling that humans are more concerned with having than being.

Hello @john_tedesco. Thanks for the follow. I guess you found me through some Mastodon mass-following tool while you were searching for people in Information Security / Hacking.

Reading your contact page johntedesco.net/blog/contact/, have you considered...?:

1 - Signal. End to end encrypted, FOSS and only requires a phone number.
2 - Threema. Audited, Swiss-made, closed source, single payment application.
3 - Keybase/traditional PGP/GPG.

Let me know if you need help setting any of those up.

In all honesty I knew I shouldn't trust closed source software for my notes. Especially not Microsoft-made. But it felt really convenient for the time. Until problems started appearing, exactly when I needed my notes the most. This is unacceptable for a multinational multibillionaire enterprise, with so many incredibly talented engineers.

But you disappointed me again when I tried to move note sections to a different notebook from my iPad. Then, your app crashed and my notes were left in an inconsistent state. Some notes appeared on the new notebook, but others showed as "not synchronised yet", and every time I tried to open the iPad app again, it crashed within seconds. So you lost my university notes.

I'm going back to regular file sync. Hello @nextcloud, good bye Microsoft.

OneNote, I trusted you. But you failed me. You failed me once when I accidentally surpassed the storage limit, creating a mess and making me pay to temporarily lift the storage size. I had to manually recover the notes from an older OneNote version because the newer ones don't have an "export to PDF" or even to proprietary OneNote format. I decided to give you a second opportunity.

You can see what kind of spam you expose yourself to if you allow comments without any kind of bot verification mechanism here: github.com/L1Cafe/L1Cafe.githu

I have decided to disable comments on my blog L1Cafe.blog because, after more than 150 comments received, none of them had actual content, and were merely spam and black SEO. Ads about amoxicilin and questionable drug sellers.

I also do this because I refuse to use Google reCaptcha, as I think it poses a threat to individual privacy.

As always, I'm open for suggestions.

After listening to linuxactionnews.com/111I think it's a quite complicated step. Dropping i386 support is not happening over night and will, due to Ubuntu 18.04 stay around for up to 10 years (9 further). getting rid of it, before the next LTS seems to be a good idea.

It's definitely time to set a termination date for i386, not just from Ubuntu, but other distributions as well.

Hello all,

I'm interested in , and concerned about the danger of and in technology and elsewhere.

I've been a user since 1998, and a contributor since 2005. My $dayjob is with though not on any product or ads teams, and I actually get to work with, and contribute to, projects.

See my profile for my other accounts. Looking forward to conversing here!


Okay, so my big dream is to get a job in a company / non-profit as a consultant / sysadmin / software integrator specialized in open source solutions.

I currently work in France for a big insurance company, and even with the benefits I get, I feel like I will eventually feel a strong need of contributing to free software
outside of my free time, in a professional environment.

Experiences / advices would be greatly appreciated. Not having many followers rn, boosts would help a lot ! Thanks :)
