I remember the time before getting involved in infosec - I call it "No matter what I do to protect myself, some lazy developer will expose me to risk beyond my control".
@fallenhitokiri I remember the Time I had no clue about the Internals of a PC and that there's more then just M$.
I call it the happily nosh what kills you time.

Posted a short rant about my experience with the UniFi Dream Machine Pro. I‘d suggest waiting a bit before getting one, the product has lots of potential, but surely isn’t polished yet. https://www.timo-zimmermann.de/2020/06/unifi-dream-machine-pro-not-the-experience-you-would-expect/
Which does not mean all the tools out there are bad - except for Wordpresses stupid Gutenberg editor - but I developed a pretty good idea what exactly I want over the last few years.
Adding to that this is like a 4 or 5 hour task to build using Django and from there likely not a lot of maintenance (considering I upgraded large Django projects all the way from 0.96-svn to the current 3.x branch without many problems)
Thinking about the next software I will use to host my blog I more and more come to the conclusion that a small, self build app is the way to go.
I still like the idea of static site generators, but I cannot find one that is remotely as usable as I want it to be or flexible enough for what I am trying to accomplish.
I would also have to rely on third party services like Webmentions for a half assed integration that won‘t check all the boxes.
Posted some thoughts on #HEY https://www.timo-zimmermann.de/2020/06/thoughts-on-hey/ - I am really curious to see how successful the service will be and what the customer base will look like.
The amount of privilege some people show when discussing Apple and the AppStore is somewhere between disturbing and plainly arrogant.
Looking at people calling this out are really not well off with all the fanboys and haters, absolutely no need for all the drama. I’ll just stay off Twitter for a few days.
I build backends, apps and sometimes break them, practice martial arts and enjoy video games.
