Lurking in the fediverse makes me happy.

@tinker Don't enter with the fake badge if you don't need to be anonymous and could get a visitor badge. Enter that way and swap to fake inside. The front desk will scrutinize a badge much more than the enployees.

Hi Fediverse 👋

let me sum up the situation around #switchingsocial

Around September 20th, the original (anonymous) author of switching.social shut down its website and all related Social Media accounts, including mastodon 🤔

This info reached me (@tobias ) the next day via my German version @swisode .

As there hasn't been any sign of life since then, I restored the website and created this new account. Right now I'm out of spare time to work on it, but that'll change in a few weeks 🙂

Finishing up an external pentest this week.

Flying out and breaking into a building next week.

Need to work on a viable field ready badge cloner....

Should do that before I leave.

Oh eris... Q4.

Nonstop tests. Back to back. Can’t get behind on reporting because it burns into the next test.

I’m caught up now.

Think I can maintain this. But wow!!!!

Here’s your hacking music for the day.

Tear the everloving shit out of your targets.


Working on finances, as one does in a capitalist society. Need to have money for healthcare, for retirement.

Spending time with family is my one true joy.

Everything else is work. And its a steady, monotonous, continuous, no benchmark, work.

It pays.

Money is good. Money is stability. Without money, you’re fucked.

I’m getting closer to paying off student loans. Actually building a savings account.

Can’t think of anything else but this.

At a point in life where I’m living in the moment. I’m not thinking about the next thing. Not planning for the far future.

I know people say to live in the moment.

But I don’t like this. Don’t like not having a direction that I’m aiming at.


A lot of things at once. Nothing particularly bad. Just a lot.

Getting nauseous and light headed.

I’m good! Taking it in the teeth as I generally do.

Surrounded by good folk. Need to push through, sleep, push through again.

The Librem 5 represents years of work, building the software and hardware required to make this phone a reality.” - Todd Weaver, founder and CEO of #Purism #Librem5 #Librem5Aspen #Linux #LinuxPhone #LinuxMobile #GNOME #FOSS

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.


It's Happening!!!

The @PINE64
Dev Pre-order is live!

This, along w/ the @purism progress, mean that we now have two very solid avenues for Open Sourced Hardware Phones that are geared to run FOSS Linux (Not Android!) OS's!

Hi everyone!
Hung Tuan Tu is now live here at Infosec.exchange.

Have folks heard of Wattpad? ( wattpad.com )

I’m looking for a place to start writing and publishing shorter stories. Something shy of publishing an actual book.
