This is a good list of not only #infosec competencies, but just general #sysadmin type competencies.

I've dipped into plenty of these skills in just standard day-to-day #Linux troubleshooting.

What if we make all our devices in such a way that you can easily pull out an encrypted volume (e.g. SD card or SSD disk) containing all PII from it rendering it's state same as if it was "factory reset"? You could do this before you send it to be fixed or put on sale.

Welcome to centralized Internet 🤷 A number of high profile websites are down right now, apparently due to a failure at Fastly (?)

Just posted an update on the Fund Us page for Small Technology Foundation. A big thank-you to our 86 patrons and to anyone who has donated. Patronage is currently paying half our rent (now we just have to find the other half) :)

I did not opt-in for that as a site owner, I can only opt-out now by setting some headers? Just having site on the web is now toxic... WTF?

@FreePietje could we just make a new internet and not invite google? is that possible?

@joeyh for me it has a darker feel of "(un)impressive things generated by a black-box statistical model no one can analyze or reason about yet important decisions are being made based on" :(

Several folks were asking about my Rolland MT-80S floppy disk boombox yesterday, so I shot a short video showcasing the device and some of it's features:
