@sajith It is problematic enough for even experienced birders that there is a term for it: LBB. It stands for "little brown bird."
As in: "Saw a pair of cardinals and a few LBBs."
You may have noticed me doing research about the technology stacks being used by #ActivityPub apps, this is because I'm involved in a couple federated projects (both of which are new use cases, and extending the #ActivityStreams format).
I'm open for feedback & collaboration requests!
The British National Cyber Security Centre has published its guide on how to secure Ubuntu 18.04 systems.
Definitely worth reading even for non-Ubuntu users ^^
We visited Anderson Japanese Gardens (https://andersongardens.org/) on Friday, and fed those ducks and kois.
We had these two visitors the other day at the same time: a monarch butterfly and a (ruby-throated?) hummingbird who were going at each other's throats for a few minutes.
You need to squint at the second picture to spot the hummingbird, but it is there. And that is my very first hummingbird picture!
Replacing juniper pines with flowering plants, and letting milkweed grow by our front door -- however haphazard a "garden" that might make -- was clearly a very good idea. I am pleased. :-)
@fitheach Hi Iain!
I just looked up and figured that "fitheach" is Gaelic for raven and it is pronounced "fith-eech". 🤓
Is this correct?
Los Angeles - animal help ASAP
"Los Angeles city animal shelters are facing a crisis, with more than 250 animals on the red list, meaning they could be euthanized if they aren't adopted or find foster homes — and fast."
I'm told that only about 5% monarch eggs become butterflies, and the rest perish. Even milkweeds are trying to kill the caterpillars with sticky latex sap and toxins!
I've checked out Anurag Agrawal's "Monarchs and Milkweed: A Migrating Butterfly, a Poisonous Plant, and Their Remarkable Story of Coevolution" from the library. It's all very thrilling.
I also moved the last caterpillar I found to a glass jar. It turned into a chrysalis the other day.
Stay tuned for further updates!
Turned out that "nmap -Pn --script ssl-enum-ciphers $host -p $port" can list SSL/TLS protocol versions available (and ciphersuites etc).
The "ssl-enum-ciphers" script did not work without that "-Pn" option for some reason, leading me to believe that this script wasn't what I was looking for.
