Homepage needs 8 seconds to load. I think I pass on this one.

So, it is almost 6am. The most important accounts are more secure and I am pretty happy about it.
Time to get ready to do groceries.

Is anyone using Matrix? I've set up an account and want to chat with someone.

It takes longer than expected, but it was long overdue. I think it will take a couple more hours. until I am done.

I have a fairly rare last name, but the .com-domain had been registered for years without any use. Last week I've got lucky and registered the respective domain.

I've been neglecting my security measurements for various accounts for a while now. Time to fix it. Tedious work, but I rather do it now before it is too late.

That will take some time.

Is anyone registered on lobste.rs and can invite me? Would appreciate it.

Is anyone learning Python's web framework Flask by any chance? I want to start coding and a coding buddy seems like a great idea.
Goals:
- create simple web apps in Flask (for the beginning)
- learn about auto-deploying
- (later) Docker
- work with Git in a small team

What are your most important sources for security related news? - I currently have an unstructured mess out of Twitter lists, RSS feeds and link aggregation sites.

- a great browser addon - just got archived and is no longer under active development.

It still can be used, but not sure for how long.
A great replacement is uBlock Origins Advanced Mode.

I really do need to backup my important stuff in a proper way. There are backups, but they are sometimes a little bit outdated and I need a strategy for the backup & recovery process.
Tips are appreciated.

Went through 80% of my bookmarks.
Happy with the new system so far, but man, it is so much work to keep it tidy.

Next step: go through notes, find ways to archive them and make them locally available.

Has anyone ever tried to join or create a 'mastermind group'?

Hey. Short
My name is Michael, and I like to talk about all sorts of technologies, especially security-related ones. I had been active here for a while, but a fresh start never hurts, I guess.

I am currently getting used to i3wm on Debian, work on my blog and wiki, and plan to complete some certs soon.

Some things I want to do soonish: hosting an IRC server and start coding web apps and bots in Python (Flask)

Happy to be here again.
