@silverwizard get a nuc low power and you can run a couple or more of vm's
Yeah - a NUC or the above Zotac will help - but I am in a "correct or not at all" mode.

Also - a reasonable 1U server is upgradable and I can start pretty small and get something good enough, and then continue to bring up over time. A NUC it's kinda all or nothing.

LastPass has a security challenge
The first thing they ask you to do it type in your master password
I don't have the confidence to feel I can audit the JS to know where that password is going. And sure, LastPass already is browsery cruft with cloud storage - but... I wont complain about job mandate password keepers.

good luck with that one
It isn't, I already verified. The opposite would be disastrous.

Man, leaving that job was hard.

A sunset is good to ride off into, and I hope they do well.

Recognize the quaternary stages of infosec:
“You know, forget the pen test, let’s just build an asset inventory and network map.”
“I secretly want to skip this con, but I’m speaking about beer.”
“I’m genuinely considering opening a bar in a few years”
“I probably drink too much.”

I am hitting the part of quitting my job where the entire floors realizes that I own everything we use to make coffee. From the grinder, to the coffee pot, to the beans.

Sorry - today I am apparently half asleep and half sysadmin, so you are getting all the shitposts that pop into my head on a given day

We're past the notion of being merely a fan of something specific and we're into the idea stacked on top of that which is being a hardcore fan of being a hardcore fan.

Sending email to gmail is actually the worst possible thing.

I am considering just not talking to GMail users until they get an email address.

jus a wee bit extreme maybe?
I've never once been hyperbolic, not even once!

Why would you accuse me of being hyperbolic!
