Anyone know RegEx really well? I have a question that might be fairly simple but I've since failed finding a solution... #regEx
One of the tools we teach folks about is OONI (a tor project) that will tell us if the internet is REALLY down (often it isn't, often it's blocking) and coupled with that we explain VPNs and how they can help and also the safety they can provide.
and still sometimes it isn't enough. There's a h/t dedicated to situations like this,
#keepiton and #switchitbackon often with the country code added, so this would be #keepitonze or #switchitbackonze
Right now, there is an internet shut down (filters and geo-blockers likely being the force) being put in place in Zimbabwe because the gov't said so, and it will last 3 days.
Some of the work I did in Uganda focused on training and teaching HRDs how to get around these acts of suppression by the gov't and sometimes even still it's not enough.
I have a 45W MagSafe 2 power adapter, with the wall extender chord and 2 dongles that have NEVER been used....would anyone be interested in purchasing them for $60+shipping (Amazon tells me this is a really good deal)? I don’t own a mac (they were from a previous employer where I was supplied with a Mac) so they’re just taking up desk space.
'When registering an account with #Telegram, the app helpfully uploads the entire Contacts database to Telegram's servers (optional on iOS).
This allows Telegram to build a huge social network map of all the users and how they know each other.
It is extremely difficult to remain anonymous while using Telegram because the social network of everyone you communicate with is known to them (and whomever has pwned their servers).'
more reasons why telegram is not a good choice for secure messaging:
We designed a user test to gather input on how our filters in our Enterprise search tool are used and then sent it out to our employees
Response1: I'm not familiar with the process filters so I wouldn't be providing any useful information.
Me: You're the EXACT audience we want to make sure we have input from, if the tool is built for the entire company, then the entire company needs to be able to use it.
...those who don't know provide the best insight to how usable your tool is.
(Please boost) If you can, please contribute to this campaign (or share it) for GoFree Uganda, a cycling company that does tours to supplement teaching children (predominantly in the slums) how to ride a bike and how to fix them, which allows these kids to get to school AND gives them skills that can lead to employment. I volunteered with them while I was in Uganda and the work they do is incredible and valuable to their community.
New to me, ability to run Google Drive from CLI using Gdrive. It’s not terrible and when you have a laptop that is running slow, it’s quite nice not having to install heavy apps. https://github.com/prasmussen/gdrive
New to me, but if you want to send encrypt email directly from Gmail, plugin FlowCrypt is quite handing. Use your own keys or generate one with the plugin. #encryption
My hot take on what is DevOps Show more
DevOps is a culture that institutions hire someone (or someones) to facilitate and lead the adaptation of the concept and mentality. DevOps is a way of working with others. A DevOps engineer is tasked with helping devs and ops folx play nicely together.
If you decide to follow me because I like OpenBSD or write tips about vi, be warned:
-CoCs are good
-LGBTQA folks are awesome and deserve rights just like any of us
-Women and minorities have been screwed in tech and we need to fix it
-Nazis deserve punching
-As a white dude, if you/I get called out on something we did, the best response is to apologize and stop talking
If you take issue with any of these statements, this place is not for you.
Anybody in Boston area want a #job?
We have several openings but I'm mostly hoping to find a #DevOps person here.
It will probably be unlike any DevOps role you've ever seen,
We make robots that go inside people and fix them which is #cybre AF and probably less evil than your average tech company.
