Headed to Dallas, TX, later this week. Going from the crazy Atlanta heat to the insane Dallas heat. Last time I was in Dallas, the soles of my shoes were leaving little black marks on the pavement as I walked because it was so hot.

@jerry and he’s now an Eagle Scout 🎉

My oldest son is in his final review needed to earn Eagle Scout right now. I am pretty anxious to hear how it went.

@Skoll3 @jerry @galaxis QA is for wimps. Real men upload their development builds to an updates server and have everyone else test it.

Another interesting stat: when I released episode 219 of DefSec, the server was pushing out 2.2Gbps of podcasts for about 10 minutes before it settled down. At any given time during the day, the server pushing about 30-60Mbps of podcast downloads.

Interesting stat: the DefensiveSecurity.org RSS feed gets polled about 56000 times per day on average.

@jerry @galaxis thing is, regardless of NSA/FBI being or not in our threat model, we work with people who simply do not have access to BitLocker, due to Windows versions they're using.

For them VeraCrypt is the only option, pretty much.

If only Microsoft would stop making life harder for everyone, that would be swell.

@jerry I have the impression that Microsoft currently disables System Restore Points with every new Windows 10 feature upgrade.

(I usually forget about that and am reminded only when I start ooshutup10 after an upgrade and it tells me that Restore Points are disabled.)

Not sure what's up with that....

We're back!

In case you are wondering why we'd disable #HyperThreading on a server, check out the #OpenBSD commit message mail-archive.com/source-change

Or the article by El Reg: theregister.co.uk/2018/06/20/o

I'm Speculating(tm), but expect further news about problems in those areas...
