Just a reminder that I'm working on an infosec/cybersecurity e-zine! Here's what you can expect from it!

This is still in the planning stages so I'd be extremely appreciative if you folk would boost and give feedback if you'd like to see this project succeed all the way to publication! :)

Pinned toot

Hi all, I've set up a Mastodon instance using Docker and noticed that there's an issue with the setup script. It needs to be run twice, failing halfway through the first time. I'm looking for feedback on this issue here: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

I'm not familiar with Ruby so I'm mostly lost as to what to do to fix the issue. I'm also not sure if this issue needs to be resolved with the setup script or the Dockerfile.

I've always wanted my friends to take this training. This is serious.
It's actually quit helpful for those overwhelmed with computers or simply new.
See how you do.......
First PewDiePie works the test.

Just finished the timeline for the e-zine project: gitea.bnolet.me/brandon/in-sec

Please take a look if you're interested in the project so you can familiarize yourself with the due dates.

Please boost to help increase awareness of the e-zine!

Shit like this pisses me off. I don't want your goddamn clippy-style patronization. History repeats itself.

So used to moving my scroll wheel to the left to pause music at work that I miss it dearly when I get home :P

Also, I'm looking to make a team of folk in charge of various parts of this project.

I'm particularly looking for folk with skills relating to marketing, design, and technical writing. If you're involved in the infosec or art community, that would definitely be an asset.

There's no money in this as I don't plan to sell this. It'll just be a cool thing to do and your name will definitely be in the e-zine as credit.

meanwhile haven't had any sort of vacation in more than 2 years

DAMN THE PEOPLE ON VACATION.

No really:

* can't get three problems fixed w/ inventory/reception SW because the 3 people who could fix it are on vacation this week
* can't install computer because person who has info for where/how to install it is on vacation
* can't replace laptop because person who does licensing is on vacation and licensed SW to install
* can't deliver received item because user is on vacation
* can't return stuff supplier contact is on vacation, can't provide shipping label

Rename FB, Twitter, etc Tribal Media instead of Social Media

Surface Book 2:

* Great detachment mechanism
* LEDs used to backlight keyboard not diffused enough
* Wonderful, large trackpad
* Nice concave on the keycaps
* Keycaps crooked kinda
* Wacom input is fantastic
* Responsive touchscreen
* Fast enough
* Quite the decent hinge
* Don't like small gap about |........| that big at hinge
* satisfying "snap" sound when closing the surface book 2

Not much more to say after using it for a minute or two

Worst part is all these egregious invasions of privacy could be resolved by doing the following:

You know when you get that "how would you rate this interaction" survey at the end of a Skype call, or with Google Assistant, etc? Well just add to that a "hey can we use this recording to help better this service?" question! And the "learn more" could be like "if you say yes, real people will be listening, if any private details are present here, you might not want to say yes."

braindead simple.

sorry for redoing that six times. I wanted to fix the formatting

Mmm, I made a Gatsby builder container for Docker here:

gitea.bnolet.me/brandon/gatsby

and you can use it from here: hub.docker.com/r/bnolet/gatsby

Nothing too complicated, just builds the site without you having to install node and all that jazz manually.
