So, whoami #introduction
I am working for a large German hoster/telco and heading a security team there. A fine team of skilled dudes.
I got into Linux at school (mid 90ies) and immediately loved it. My first #BSD was #OpenBSD 2.5 and I run that for a while. Over the years I experimented with #FreeBSD and finally stuck at #DragonFlyBSD where I am also a committer.
Nowadays, my business systems have to run Linux while all my personal devices run #OpenBSD. Our wireless support In Dfly sucks :/
#Edinburgh is a very nice place
@thfr I just installed openra from -current packages on a fresh machine. openal was not downloaded as a dependency, thus, openra didn't start. I assume that's not intentional, right?
Developer/Sysadmin For Hire
I've decided that I no longer want to work at my current position.
If you're looking for an apprentice Linux/BSD sysadmin or a journeyman developer, hit me up.
I have a CompTIA Linux+ certification, I run OpenBSD on all of my personal computers, and I've been through several software development life cycles.
I'm a US citizen, and willing to work remotely. I can also commute to sites in Pennsylvania, USA and am OK with limited travel.
Resume available upon request.
For the previous four days the squirrel came to the peanut feeder at *exactly* 08:00. On day five I confidently predict to my OH that the squirrel will be there at 08:00.
So, what happens? Of course, the squirrel doesn't arrive until 08:45. Just goes to show you can't rely on a squirrel. BTW I've never seen a squirrel with a watch.
I finally found some time to write down my #g2k19 #OpenBSD hackathon story about #deauth attacks in #wifiland: https://undeadly.org/cgi?action=article;sid=20190611075252
The OS is the Browser
During RIPE 78 in Reykjavik, Iceland, I was lucky to interview Geoff Huston from APNIC. We had a chat about the past, present and future of DNS.
In the interview I learned that at some point in the beginning of the DNS rollout in the internet, there was a discussion at the IETF to go back to HOSTS.TXT and to distribute the file via CD-ROM to all networks connected to the Internet
