Pinned toot

I watched a lot of new releases this year. I took notes after I watched the films and I put together a write up with my notes on the movies I liked the best in 2018.

I might have lost track of time when I sat down to play Sky Force Reloaded on my Xbox One X this evening.

😮

This game is pretty addictive.

Living the life of not having a datacap on AT&T Fiber. Glad we dropped Comcast and their silly 1TB datacap.

Speaking at my company’s sales kick off meeting in a few minutes. Whee!

making a terminal-based mastodon client because i'm bored

@mookie I love the folks who are upset that this spoils part of Endgame.

Have y'all never read comic books?

Superheroes return from the dead like it was a drive thru.

Get ready for another Netflix price hike.

I get our Netflix “free” as part of the family’s T-Mobile plan. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be subscribed consistently. There’s a lot of content, but I don’t find myself watching all that much on the service. If I had to pay, I’d probably let stuff pile up, subscribe for a month, binge watch and then unsubscribe.

Rookie mistake: Assuming people asking questions actually want answers or solutions. Often they just want sympathy.

Techie and engineering minded types have a really hard time not making this mistake. 😔

All Secure Copy Protocol (SCP) implementations contain 4 security vulnerabilities that allow malicious SCP servers to make changes on the client's side:

zdnet.com/article/scp-implemen

– all SCP implementations (OpenSSH, Putty, WinSCP etc.) are affected
– vulnerabilities are there since 1983
– CVE-2018-20685, CVE-2019-6111, CVE-2019-6109, CVE-2019-6110
– at the moment, only WinSCP provides a patch (WinSCP 5.14)

#scp #ssh #openssh #winscp #putty #vulnerability #infosec #cybersecurity #security

So trade that typical for something colorful / And if it's crazy, live a little crazy / You can play it sensible, a king of conventional

Or you can risk it all and see

Best way to move instances on #Mastodon:

On your OLD account:

1. Export your follows, mutes and blocks: go to Settings, then Data Export, then download the CSV files (you do NOT need to request an archive to do this!)

2. Set your old account to redirect to the new one: go to Settings, then Edit Profile, then "Move To A Different Account" (at bottom of screen)

On your NEW account:

3. Upload your follows, mutes and blocks: go to Settings, then Import, then upload the CSV files

Most people work just hard enough not to get fired and get paid just enough money not to quit.

That feeling when you are a pot with some goddamn feet

#Mastodon.social is facing quite an annoying #spam problem recently. Some #spambot has been hitting the instance since a few days, posting a toot every 5s pointing to the same site. I've been reporting multiple accounts following the same pattern. I wonder what strategies can be put in place to prevent this because, apparently, whoever wrote that bot keeps it running 24/7 with quite some "success".

The #spam situation on #mastodon.social is out of control. The local timeline is unusable. Makes me really consider a move to another #instance.

54GB updates suck. Even on a fiber connection because I might have 1Gbps, but the other side or what's in between does not.
