Apparently there’s a sea shanty trend going around. One of our local radio DJs did a really good job recording one about my home town. https://twitter.com/my96fm/status/1355158579234230272/video/1
I don’t know why exactly but this sort of thing gives me hope for today and the future. https://twitter.com/cbcarts/status/1353796084850716673?s=21
A great video from NY Times on what we can do about QAnon. One of the main points is: Don't ridicule as it only drives people deeper into the rabbit hole. And that makes sense from my own personal experiences.
Town has a third level domain name from years back town.wearecool.ab.ca. We tried to register a wildcard for *.town.wearecool.ab.ca. But we can't because we don't control (nor does anyone else) wearecool.ab.ca and since 2012, these types of third level domains are defunct.
So… I guess now I'm just going to register an entirely new domain to use for access to all the services that used to run on *.town.wearecool.ab.ca.
COVID, Good news
So relative of my wife's in Germany was taken to hospital last week with what they though was asthma but turns out it was COVID. Pretty frightening since he's in his 80's, and tough because his wife has had multiple strokes and didn't really understand what's going on.
The good news is he's doing better and has now tested negative as have all other family members.
All this time I was making InfoSec out to be much harder than I needed. I guess all I have to do is mash keys? 😎 https://github.com/linuxmint/cinnamon-screensaver/issues/354
Carbon Black vs RDP
This Carbon Black and RDP issue is really strange. While it works with this other image, RDP connections still hang with a black screen for a few seconds before the connection completes.
According to their support, I'm supposed to bring it up with @thegibson 😂
I watch over the stuff with blinky lights. Pretty boring and entirely unremarkable.
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.
