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.

My train ride home took a Hito Steyerlian turn. This is a CCTV test target. I had no idea such things even existed. I am obsessed.

@sungo @float13 @djsundog damn, I love learning about cool shit like this from seemingly random outcomes of conversations.

This is going to save me some work, thanks for sharing!

@requiem @float13 @djsundog mp3fs is a great example of unintended consequences. "what will happen if we give users a way to create a file system purely in user space? Surely nothing weird."

Oh, just my daily grandpa rant about 4 gigabytes of storage not being enough for a phone today.

I know none of the kids today have ever even *touched* anything with such a tiny amount of storage, and they program accordingly, but still. It frustrates me how wasteful everything is.

I admit I'm very much a luddite when it comes to phones. I dislike the whole "pay $1000 every year" ecosystem.

But I've finally upgraded to 2017 so I can join the human race that has F-Droid access.

It feels so good to be back on the water. Where are we going? yes.

@avalon can I do an intro? My friend Kel is assembling a crew in Dallas "Immersive Van Gogh is the very first show of many to come. We have a 7 year lease on the venue and over 40 shows in the pipeline. We're still looking for two Assistant Venue Operations that trying to hire asap. After that it's assistant management for retail and box office and after that gallery exhibit attendants with some lead and supervisory roles sprinkled in."

OpenCV 

Okay I am confused.

I have a program that is taking 16 images from each of the capture APIs to see how long they take and which ones work.

The only ones that work are ANY (which just seems to be GSTREAMER), GSTREAMER, V4L, V4L2 (which is just V4L) and VFW (which also appears to just be V4L).

GSTREAMER produces images that are 2304x1536 and V4L produces 640x480 images.

I am using a C922X which is supposed to be 1920x1080, why does GSTREAMER creates such large images?

Even more Fleenode drama!!

-root-  [Global Notice 1/3] We are moving past legacy freenode to a new fork.  The new freenode is launched.  You will slowly be disconnected and when you reconnect, you will be on the new freenode.  We patiently await to welcome you in freedom's holdout - the freenode.
-root-  [Global Notice 2/3] If you're looking to connect now, you can already /server chat.freenode.net 6697 (ssl) or 6667 (plaintext).  It's a new genesis for a new era.  Thank you for using freenode, and Hello World, from the future.  freenode is IRC. freenode is FOSS.  freenode is freedom.
-root-  [Global Notice 3/3] When you connect, register your nickname and your channel and get started.  It's a new world.  We're so happy to welcome you and the millions of others.  We will be posting more information in the coming days on our website and twitter.  Otherwise, see you on the other side!

This happened right after Freenode banned IRCCloud users following IRCCloud staff statements suggesting users to migrate off Freenode and the launch of competing bouncer services; here’s an archived Bird site thread with more info. Regardless of your opinion of IRCCloud, banning all IRCCloud users right after launching a competing service and hearing criticism is not a good look.

Now that most channels are dead and direct users to other networks despite staff’s best efforts to quell any criticism (channel migrations+topic-renaming, banning users, etc), I guess they decided to wipe everything and start over to more easily remove any references to Libera/OFTC. In fact, it removes any every reference to anything at all.

If you had a bot that directed users to the actual location of your community, you should check to make sure that it survives this migration (this was probably part of the intent).

If you use Matrix and have left Freenode channels, the IRC-Matrix appservice bridge might still be keeping you connected. To leave Freenode, send a “!quit” message to the Freenode bridge appservice user, @appservice-irc:matrix.org. Docs: 1, 2.

Oh, and they recently seized ##linux, the last channel with >1k users.

Covid vaccine news, ++ 

arstechnica.com/science/2021/0

Noravax FINALLY managed to get through a clinical trial! They've had a dickens of a time getting set up to produce vaccine despite being one of the first ones designed. Two shots, new technology not mRNA *or* adrenovirus, so it can be stored in a fridge, but also will hopefully not have the issues of the adreinovirus ones!

We often think of cicadas as a transient mayfly like bugs, but they spend most of their life unseen. Many of the children of my peers are younger then these cicadas. That's wild and I have to keep reminding myself about that 😯🦗
