@celia That was a quick recovery! This company has such a great vision - Love it.

@celia Mine seems to be functioning fine 🤷‍♂️

@adityamukho That's a mystery, are you using a custom domain?

This is our regular shout-out / reminder to use an encrypted password manager!

We love KeePassXC! But any is better than none!

Create passwords that are impossible to remember because they are so strong and unique for every account.

Also store any of your secrets in there, not just passwords.

Use #Nextcloud or another sync tool to keep your password database connected to each of your systems.

#infosec #keepassxc #security #privacy

@celia Absolutely agree, really nice addition.

Fortunately, I am in a position where I can pick and choose.

I think everyone with this privilege should use the power to stand for what is fair and help improve the hiring process - Companies must see the human first, not a test score.

Withdrew yet another application for a job today when I was requested to complete a 2 hour test before a call or interview could be had.

Why should a developer spend 2 hours of time in order to get an audience with a prospective employer?

Stand up against these policies.

@RTShort I just convert them onto Signal 🤷‍♂️

@celia Backend Engineer here who sucks with Algorithms and didn't study CS. If you can do the job and enjoy it, keep at it! Titles aren't worth anything, products are. 🤙

@fatboy ohhhh yeah, check out /r/unixporn for some Git repos to help you

@mstrsobserver Totally agree with you there, a compliment not a replacement.

Can't beat piping kubectl into grep either 🤷‍♂️

@mstrsobserver Dude, have you tried K9s? Absolutely fantastic tool

Reached that part of the year where all the side projects I very enthusiastically started are now half-complete and I feel *saturated*


Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina I noticed this ended with a "P".

Still waiting for mine to get there 😂

Anyone else noticing more and more websites stopping to function when using a VPN?

@vitSkalicky Agreed - I think sticking neutral is the way to go here too. Selecting another company to use as a verb only perpetuates the problem. Love DDG, naturally - But things can change.
