If you’re interested in helping out, I pay about $350/year to host infosec.exchange, not including my time. I have about $30/year in donations. You can donate here: liberapay.com/Infosec.exchange

Note: don’t feel bad about not donating. The service will still be here. I am fortunate to be in a position to provide the service. But I get the angry stare from my wife now and then when she asks me about the charges 😂

Okay, I've tried everything else, let's see what happens here. I'm a 56yo IT professional currently facing age discrimination in the job market. My skills are proven and broad.

I'm willing to relocate pretty much anywhere for a job that pays enough to cover my mortgage. I need employment by Sept 30. CV on request. #job #dayjob

"There is no amount of regulation, transparency, or oversight that will fix the dangers inherent in widespread face surveillance.
