I see we're still calling Twitter "birdsite".
Wake me up when we mature a little bit, will 'ya?
Hi Mastodon! Long time no see. Glad to see you're still around.
CNN posted an opinion piece recently about "America's Changing Gender Norms" and after reading some of the comments it prompted me to write a little something about it: https://unorigmoniker.com/2017/08/02/americas-changing-gender-norms/ #trans #gender #transgender
Facebook CSO Alex Stamos delivered the Blackhat keynote today. In his keynote, he calls out one of the, if not the single, biggest problem we have in the Information Security world: we build systems for people who have deep technical knowledge of everything they're going to encounter. Which is no one.
Security is about people. If we expect to succeed in infosec, we have to build for people.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus is now FREE. This is fantastic news! Kaspersky has consistently ranked and has been rated one of the best Anti-Virus/ Anti-Malware software packages for YEARS.
I highly recommend everyone install it.
Now you have no excuse.
And make sure you keep your OS and software regularly patched and updated!
Reminder, Mozilla has an awesome web server config generator that pretty much guarantees your site will get an A+ rating on Qualys' SSL Labs survey!

Looking through the list of alternate blogging platforms and I find myself drawn back to WordPress. Even among a now crowded field it still remains the most flexible and easy to manage blogging platform around.
Chester Bennington's suicide was sad, but unfortunately lots of children are abused sexually and they all don't commit suicide. Also, lots of adults have depression, and they all don't commit suicide. Suicide for some is unfortunately the ultimate answer. We should not be mad at the persons' choice to commit suicide, but mad at the circumstances that led them down that dark path. I attempted suicide when I was 18. I was in a very dark place. Glad I didn't succeed.
We're back. Doggo has kidney disease. :-(
Going to be leaving to pick up doggo from the emergency vet hospital here pretty soon.
She's still got some issues going on with her kidneys (urine had got some funky stuff going on with it) so I'm going to take off from work at lunch tomorrow and bring her to her normal vet for an ultrasound and more treatment.

This is what happens when you have a culture that values the Company above the Employee. The only way you're going to get rid of this is through collective bargaining agreements or a fundamental shift away from an oligarchy towards a true democracy. https://mastodon.social/media/kXd9o_66cpVj6io1QpU
Hey @Gargron - I Just found a really good use-case for Mastodon!
Since Twitter limits you to 140, and Masto limits you to 500, you can take screen-shots of your long Mastotoots and share them with Twitter to get out a longer message!
Now all you need to do is include the instance name somewhere and get free advertising: https://mastodon.social/media/Fzdj6obrnYit5j8IbdQ
Website operators need to stop bitching about Ad Blockers, especially when the ad (zenko.io) makes it so you can't even navigate the website! I'm looking at you, Slashdot! Jesus H. Christ!
My doggo is my dependent. Should be on my health insurance.
At Emergency Vet with a very sick doggo. 😭
