Pinned toot

Just found a whole batch of Hackers.town people languishing in my Follow queue.

Locals should drop me a line when following so I can approve. Not currently accepting outside follows.

Pinned toot

? But I never did ...

I'm a weird guy who decided to base his profile on the movie Sneakers. I love technology, probably more than is healthy. My interests tend to revolve in a cycle but in the spirit of hackers.town I try to keep it to infosec and general internet nerdery.

I live with a migraine 24/7 so don't be surprised to see the occasional related toot.

Fun STA Fact #4 (collect them all!): A Canadian goose once attempted to carjack me.

Tried to pay a bill. Entered the card number from memory. "There was an error processing your payment." Check wallet.

Huh. Nope. That's a card I haven't had in ... ages.

Beastie Boys - Sabotage

youtube.com/watch?v=z5rRZdiu1U

'Cause what you see you might not get
And we can bet so don't you get souped yet
You're scheming on a thing that's a mirage
I'm trying to tell you now it's sabotage

How on earth did I not know that Cigarettes After Sex covered Neon Moon?

I'm sure none of you care, but I think this is just the best thing ever.

Cigarettes After Sex - Neon Moon

If you lose your one and only
There's always room here for the lonely
To watch your broken dreams
Dance in and out of the beams
Of a neon moon

Madonna - Into The Groove

youtube.com/watch?v=52iW3lcpK5

Only when I'm dancing can I feel this free
At night I lock the doors, where no one else can see
I'm tired of dancing here all by myself
Tonight I wanna dance with someone else

Just renewed my amateur radio license. 10 years already? Or as my brother-in-law would say "10 years and still a technician?"

At a glance, parsing over a relatively simple binary file doesn't seem too difficult.

But it's always harder than you think...

GAHHH It drives me up the wall that the button in Firefox to open the pane with the history/favorites/etc is on the right side of the GUI but the pane is on the left.

I've got, two [cheese] burgers in paradise.
Pack your fries, we leave tonight.

You know you're at an amazing point in your life, when the highlight of your day is peering through the blinds, watching the garbage truck toss the trash can around.

On several of my trips home from PT, I've noticed that a lot of the nicer neighborhoods have banners out front congratulating and listing all the HS grads who live there.

From a security perspective, this does not give me warm and fuzzy feelings.

Tina Turner - I Don't Wanna Fight

youtube.com/watch?v=lSRMiC75Vw

Hanging on to the past
It only stands in our way
We have to grow for our love to last
But we just grew apart

🎶 And If you're trying to cut me down
You know that I might bleed
'Cause if you're trying to cut me down
I know that you'll succeed
And if you want to hurt me
There's nothing left to fear
'Cause if you want to hurt me
You're doing really well my dear 🎶

Seether ft. Amy Lee - Broken

youtube.com/watch?v=hPC2Fp7IT7

'Cause I'm broken when I'm open
And I don't feel like I am strong enough
'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away

Journey - Separate Ways

youtube.com/watch?v=_wY6i5vRlU

Someday love will find you
Break those chains that bind you
One night will remind you
How we touched
And went our separate ways

Why is it that when you're dreaming and you tell a joke, it's laugh-out-loud, knee-slapping funny, but when you wake up, you still understand how it was constructed, but it doesn't actually work...

Dreams: cheating at life

Zero 7 - Warm Sound

youtube.com/watch?v=QmPchJQjqU

Warm sounds
Falling slowly
Takes the time away from me
Warm sounds
Feeling no pain
Taking the time away from me

Chris Isaak - Wicked Game

youtube.com/watch?v=aid2vMbCNP

I love this song. I first heard a chill electronic cover on SiriusXM's Chill (back when it actually played, you know, chill music). Since then I've come to know the Chris Isaak version and it's pretty awesome too.

"What a wicked game to play to make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do, to let me dream of you
What a wicked thing to say, you never felt this way
What a wicked thing to do, to make me dream of you

And I don't wanna fall in love
No, I don't wanna fall in love
With you"
