irc may be old and clunky but at least it can't get acquired by salesforce

Attempting to 3D print a duplo rail to see if I can expand my daughter's train set ... so far, so good. And she'll like having pink rails :-)

Amazon driver dropped off a package, then stood in front of my house to smoke for ~10 minutes. That was new ...

No, smart guy, people don't search out and use privacy focused tech because they're "allergic to good tools." We do it for many reasons, mostly, however, because their are great privacy-focused tools for which we, as humans, dont have to be the rae material.

Made the mistake of searching blindly for something on Tor again. I love the anonymity and structure of the system. I loathe the kind of crap it attracts.

Haven't heard this one before but it's pretty good.

Just learned I was one of the lucky 4% of folks who fully completed the challenge put on by dotTechDomains.

Means I have a less-than-abysmal chance at winning the overpowered gaming computer at the end of the challenge.


According to Spotify, my top song for 2020 was Twinkle Twinkle Little Star by Goofy.

Maybe I should find a way to differentiate my music from what I play to entertain my daughter ...

Day two of not being on and I find myself _almost_ going back to it several times a day.

It's remarkable to realize just how much time I spent scrolling through that feed ...

Catch up on my series on password cracking before I wrap things up next week. Today's post covers setting up a Hashtopolis server to spread your Hashcat cracking runs across several different machines:

The last day of November begins my month long experiment of abstaining from viewing or interacting with . My blog will still auto-post some stuff, but aside from that I'll be ignoring it and focusing my attention over here.
