Wife's Instagram account notified her of an suspicious login (from Russia, so yeah). She didn't even know she had it. This was just before we were going to go to sleep. So we didn't.
I got to walk her through the steps in dealing with this and explained the basics. We deleted her account and have a good guess how it was compromised thanks to Firefox Monitor. She's now aware that she needs to change other passwords and may appreciate 1Password a bit more.
I was proud of her because she was highly suspicious of the email asking her to change her password. It was legit, but she was all like, "I'm not clicking on that!"
One thing I didn't mention from my astronomy night out the other day was the mild sass I got for having a astrophotography mount. (A computerized equitorial mount.)
Such a mount requires a lot of setup. The "grab and go" mounts (alt-azimuth) are much simpler. In discussions with most other people that brought out a scope, they didn't hesitate to tell me (in a friendly way) that they didn't want to go with that sort of thing because it's too complicated or it doesn't teach you how to find things.
Aside from the fact that I intend on learning where things are (and not just using the mount's computer to do all the work), I have a feeling there was some inferiority complex going on. I certainly wasn't there to show anyone up. In fact, one guy showed me how to do everything -- and it was great!
I guess people will be people.
Clear sky, so out I go. #BackyardAstronomyLife
(Also, vacation coming up.)
The hackers.town limited edition patch arrived! @fool
A collector's item for the ages.
She loves the scratching couch we got them. It's where she sleeps now. #cats
Had a great time tonight out with the telescope. No pictures but I did learn how to properly align everything. Quite the learning experience.
And I managed to get a good look at Jupiter, this time with higher magnification, and using the scope to jump to the location (even though I knew where it was).
Still love it. Looking forward to our upcoming vacation at a dark sky preserve.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
