Hey, my current gig is going to be ending in the next few weeks.

I do web and ops automation, specifically, django, python in general, and saltstack.

Short term is fine.

Boosts appreciated!

I have discovered a corollary to Leslie Lamport’s definition of a distributed system: a virtualized system is one in which changes to a layer that you have no access or visibility into can render it impossible to get any work done.

It's a tiny thing, but it really bugs me that Facebook named their next-generation compression library "zstandard". You don't get to declare yourself a standard, dude. That's not how it works.

Someone who shall remain un-@-ed was feeling old because they’ve had internet friends for ten years now. Lemme tell you, kid, my email address is old enough to purchase alcoholic beverages.

I might have an opportunity to drive across the country very soon. If you live between the east and west coasts of the United States of America and you have tips or want to hang or host two weary press freedom advocates next month, uh, lemme know

I don't think this essay put enough emphasis on the main point. If an attacker can run code on your computer (say, in an installer for some piece of software you got from the internet), and they can grab your OpenSSH private key file, the default password-protected encryption is worse than no password, because "This leaked key provides an oracle: if I guess the password correctly... I know I guessed correctly because I can check against your public key."

They are also bragging about doing heinously unsafe things involving cars and booze, and I am gritting my teeth and not delivering a lecture, because I know perfectly well they've already heard it from their parents and they won't pay any more attention to a random stranger in the public library, but augh. I don't want you to die, kids!
