So, whoami

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 was 2.5 and I run that for a while. Over the years I experimented with and finally stuck at where I am also a committer.

Nowadays, my business systems have to run Linux while all my personal devices run . Our wireless support In Dfly sucks :/

@h3artbl33d that is happening due to the interaction of join, and nwid "". join fails to find any network to join and, if no network has ever been selected, then the default nwid "" behaviour kicks in and selects an open wifi.

I'm working on a diff to allow join "" (so we can disable nwid ""), but it won't be put into 6.4. As a workaround, I put a manual nwid line at the top of my hostname.if file.

nwid invalid
join foo
join home
join work wpakey foobar
join cafe

Wow. The 2018 fundraising campaign is now at $423.000. Over $100k over the goal.

Just got a cold call on my company phone and the guy (apparently from a call center) tried to sell my stock market shares.

I pretended to be dump and asked a lot of questions. After 5 minutes the guy hung up. Made my day and reminded me of persons chatting with the Emacs psychiatrist :)

ICYMI: auctions to support #freebsdfoundation and #openbsdfoundation. #freebsd #openbsd

Unique items. Never to be seen again. Because no two signatures are alike, especially from several developers.
