I think I owe a hat tip to @marcusjcarey on Twitter for this, but this is something that is tremendously useful for those long investigative sessions.

I'm looking for an overnight SOC analyst for our managed SOC in Portland Oregon. I'm targeting more junior/mid-level at this time, so if you've got a strong background in IT, awareness of, and thirst for, security good-guying and data analytics, and hate the daylight, send yourself my way and let's talk.

(Last toot: it's also just really useful in daily life.)

Hey everyone.

If you're making a video when you're entering stuff into a bash shell, please don't spend time futzing around with fixing typos.

@robertcc This might sound like a bad answer, but here goes (and mind you, I'm only a hobbyist)

I imagine I'm ahead of the curve. Doing 1 more thing than the average Joe. When it comes to users I manage, I am aware their passwords are shit and that ANYONE with half a mind could rob the heck out of our place, but that part is not in my job description.

Oh, and smoking. Cigars.

@robertcc
Alcohol. A lot of alcohol.

Besides that, meditation and sport.

Robert boosted

@robertcc Lots of sleep, also try to avoid or decrease issues around RSI

@robertcc Meditation and kids. Who needs a gym if they're running after kids all day?

Robert boosted

@robertcc yoga and regular exercise, enough and regular sleep, no coffee, knowing when to take self-care breaks from the industry and current events

Play music w/an acoustic instrument and let it resonate through your body. Frequency therapy.
