Anyone who does podcasts in the IT/infosec/hacking world... I would like to be a guest sometime if you'd have me...
I need to up BlackFire's visibility, and as such, talking is a great way to do that.
So, if you are ever looking for a guest/stand in co-host/ whatever... I am available.
What does #systemd do wrong? How is it done better elsewhere?
First demerits for systemd:
- main repo on github
- claims to be modular but I know only mxlinux to mix and mingle.
- allows vendors to set a service as active
- locks majority of focus to doing things only compatible with systemd
That's about it?
Otherwise, it does its job and has much documentation; devs are responsive; it has no lagging parts (everything is kept up-to-date and coordinated).

Here's one of these SORM devices. It's about the size of a washing machine.
Okay. I might be paranoid but it's weird.
1) I installed Ubuntu 18 Desktop editiion.
2) I got "nethogs" package for monitoring my traffic.
3) I left it for few hours.
4) I noticed some process was communicating with random IP address (which was lame for fresh install).
5) It turned out to be "Amazon server". It might be related to preinstalled Amazon application on Ubuntu desktop (which I've never touched or launched).
The question is: "Why do they do that?"
