Invictus
by William Ernest Henley

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

Oh right
Why not

Hello, I'm Erin. I'm a hacker/researcher specializing in embedded control systems. In a past life I did development/testing/integration of safety critical embedded systems.

I probably have hobbies I guess, mostly family and taking care of an old house. Some games. Or with free time I like figuring out how things work. But I get paid for that now so I'm not sure it qualifies as a hobby at the moment.

And almost done, just waiting for luggage from the plane after. Midnight last night. Early by defcon standards but flying is tiring.

Ah! I forgot to add in my trip home pictures.

Yesterday before flights: here we go again

Well my clock is still fucked up from defcon. I suppose that's traditional.

Got home last night. So far covid tests are negative.

The flying and traveling I mean. Not the mask I'm wearing in the picture, I've got other things I'm way more self conscious about than a mask :blob_grinning_sweat:

Idk, maybe it's been mentioned on here already, I've got too many accounts anymore so I keep up with all of them poorly 😂

Cross post from Twitter. KF has been doing great work on some commercially available robot dogs:

Second covid booster before defcon ✅
Forgot all about the side effects ✅

ugh I feel like shit

Well. Our favorite poke place is closing 😭

Just picked up food for the last time there.

Removing the link I posted this morning since it's become apparent it is not a serious effort but was posted by someone who is apparently trying to use the situation to do some clout farming.

ProTip for new #Mastodon users:

Don’t stress too much about finding the perfect first instance.

If your account name of choice is taken then find another instance where it isn’t.

Multiple accounts is normal but eventually you will find a home on the fediverse.

You might even decide to make your own instance like I did. ;)

So.....
Google sucks at search anymore.
Duckduckgo is ok, but falls down pretty badly at searching for error messages or programming help.
Bing is... I keep forgetting it exists (maybe it's not bad anymore?)

It feels like it's time for a new search engine to rise to power. How hard can it be? :da_grin:

Welcome @jaime! Also here's your pineapple which I just learned about earlier today 🍍
