First vaccine shot done. No side effects. Next shot at the end of July.

I have particular talent to breaking cheap Chinese microphone stands. Time to buy a solid one I guess.

Aaaaand we have a vaccine appointment. Tomorrow.

I don't always read spam mails but when I do, they're entertaining. I didn't know I had a new cool first name.

Also, the true definition of laziness is leaving the PC on and shutting it down via VNC on your phone before going to sleep.

Sometimes I hate JavaScript.

I usually love it, but in 2 cases of 10 it feels like having sex with a hedgehog.

Yes Mr Spammer, it's absolutely probable I use internet services from a provider in Canada and forgot to pay the invoice.

Opting my websites out of FLoC.

I want to believe it makes any difference but I'm too cynical these days.

A SIM card tray in one of my phones broke and got stuck in a way I can't get it out.

To open up the phone I need a heat gun and a set of iFixit tools, none of which I own or plan to purchase because I don't want to buy a cow to have a carton of milk.

Since 2016 I'm trying to figure out what exactly I gained in exchange for easily repleacable battery and accessible card slots.

Not the kind of feeling I cherish, but reading the news about 2019 Facebook data breach I feel relieved I quit the platform for good in mid 2010s and pi-holed all of its hosts at home.

So much for a world in which companies do innovative stuff that brings an actual change rather
than copying features from each other just because.

I mean, could I finally get dark mode before that Clubhouse nonsense? Please Microsoft?

One thing I despise about DST switch is that of all clocks in my vincinity it's my radio-controlled wall clock and a Windows 10 clock that struggle to handle this correctly.

Hand-wound mechanical watches require less maintenance than that.

If I've learned anything this last year, it's that we're not guaranteed anything and we should try to live out our dreams while we're alive to live them out. It is in that spirit that I reached out to a local college radio station (KPSU in Portland, Oregon) and proposed a new show; my proposal was accepted pending submission of a prerecorded pilot episode. The show is called Hack the Airwaves and I aim to explore various facets of hacker culture, hacker ethics, and the multitudes of kinds of hackers there are out there and the amazing projects they're working on.

Now that I've announced that here, I have a request for all the hackers out there (including and especially those who see hacking as much bigger than just infosec). I plan for my pilot episode to be called "What is a Hacker?" and for that, I need help. Contact me if you're interested in participating by sending me a ~1-7 minute recording of what being a hacker means to you.
