Pinned toot

I've been hacking unix systems since the mid-80s in a good way, and I try to stay in the unix/free software/open source software world as much as possible.

I build far too many workflows that mix bash, python, awk, sed and golang together to drag data from odd places, polish it up, and put the results somewhere where the sun does shine. With possibly less input safety than is needed ...

For money, I do infosec. For fun, I play Elite:Dangerous and help run the in-universe radio station RadioSidewinder.com.

I also live somewhere that isn't in your timezone, have a family that just wants their tech to work, and look forward to owning electric vehicles.

What a world we live in, with technology providing so many opportunities ...

I just had to reboot my mouse.

Not the computer, mind you, but the mouse.

Life is too complex.

A very interesting engineering review of the collapse of the Arecibo Telescope, following the formal report. Sadly youtube of course ...

I am often asked if I will “return to cryptocurrency” or begin regularly sharing my thoughts on the topic again. My answer is a wholehearted “no”, but to avoid repeating myself I figure it might be worthwhile briefly explaining why here…

Received my SQMFI Watchy a couple of days ago.
It's a little rough around the edges, the "out of box" firmware had issues, it's not at Pebble levels of awesomeness yet ... but I got an alternative firmware loaded and can now actually confirm that the buttons work :-|

Also hey, anyone around these parts like Master Boot Record? New MP3 warez uploaded

At least, honesty from a streaming music service ...

I know Apple Music won't be committed to me as a consumer, and that they might cancel "my" music collection anytime.

Just had a talk to my boss about the Kawaiicon CFP I want to submit, "No Cops, No Bastards", which is how I learn that he was a police officer back in the UK lololol

GitHub Support just straight up confirmed in an email that yes, they used all public GitHub code, for Codex/Copilot regardless of license.

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.
