Buying a house is exhausting. Lots of "hurry up and wait". I also am not super keen on all the personal data I'm handing out.

@jerry I want to learn risk profiling and risk assessment. It's an area I'm weak in for sure. What books/lectures/etc. would you recommend to learn more about this all important part of cyber security?

Goodbye, Steven, and thank you for sharing yourself and your art with us. The world is not a beautiful place, but you shared beauty and happiness with it for the little while you had.

We did not deserve you. Thank you.

Happy Thanksgiving to all the US tooters out there!

Last couple of weeks have been brutal. Looking forward to a calm, rainy weekend.

There are things I would like to try my hand at. But, I can be good at one or two things or mediocre at 1,000. Determining my priorities and keeping them top-of-mind is a big key to success.

You basically proof that you are not a good teacher when one of the first things you suggest to someone who wants to improve their it-security is switching the operating system.

First of all this usually breaks a ton of workflows. Second of all you take someone out of an environment they know and put them into unknown regions. Which highers the risk of making mistakes. And last but not least you basically tell the person that they always did everything wrong and break moral.
