Pinned toot

A month ago I decided to transition from UI/UX into cyber security.

Long way to go but for those interested in tooling and lists, I’ve been starring useful ones I’ve played around with on GitHub: github.com/ESWAT?tab=stars

It’s been cool to see my calendar brokken down in sekki, but not looking forward to tomorrow…

My MacBook didn’t implode after upgrading to Catalina surprisingly.

Back to popping boxes. Trying to hit Pro Hacker rank on Hack The Box by the end of next week so I can chill out a bit.

Finally rooted the Haystack box on HTB. Had to learn about Elasticsearch et al. and pick up some Spanish…

If you may indulge me, I needed some K-Pop during my study session today youtube.com/watch?v=W761DtH1oR

Anyone want a free ticket to View Source Conference in Amsterdam? Received one but can’t go. It’s on Sep 30/Oct 1. More info: 2019.viewsourceconf.org/

UnderRail: ran into a gang of hostile Lunatics and Cats…

Went to my first local DEFCON meetup. Weird experience but interesting to compare them with the other two local meetups.

DEFCON: Hardware, network topics. Tend to piss off the police.
OWASP: Application, service topics. Walk a straight line.
OTHER: Nation-state and organized crime topics. Are the police.

Small thing but added "Always on Top" support and "Resize Window to Fit Image" action to VoidView. Great for using as a reference while creating in another app!

Think all that's left is some refactoring + bugfixing before pushing 1.3.

Decided to take a deeper dive into fixing old issues with VoidView and making it a polished product.

Not released yet, but now supports displaying images in their original resolution, dragging images out of the app to save a copy and more.

I started getting into the habit of listening to audiobooks while playing Civ5 (as Shoshone because of dat territory bonus).

There's probably a more-fitting audiobook I can listen to while playing this instead. Maybe re-listen to Shogun while playing as Japan?

Deus Ex, but instead of NWO, Illuminati and FEMA, Denton has to deal with Facebook, crypto billionaires and flat earthers.

Wrote a thing about my thoughts on the game industry’s adoption of increasingly-exploitative business practices that are being used on customers: gist.github.com/ESWAT/92f1aa87

Slowly getting back into writing. Don't have the layout to put these on my site yet, so I’ll just gist them until that time.

I wrote about my separation between work and leisure as a freelancer here: gist.github.com/ESWAT/f12582da
