I'm excited to share a project that I've been working on: a brand-new version of @Mozilla's SSL Configuration Generator: ssl-config.mozilla.org/ Configuring TLS is perhaps the most complicated and error-prone of all IT tasks, and this tries to make it as easy as possible.

A reminder to all employees that an AWS outage means to pretend that you can't work the rest of the day.

Seems like every employer has debates about how much of the company org chart should be visible and (more importantly) easily accessible to perform computations on. Does anybody know of any research showing how much complete company org charts go for on the black market?

I was nearly homeless after getting kicked out of foster care. Tech paid money, and so it seemed like a good fit for me.
Why did you get into tech? Not how, why.

I tease @jack a lot because of his cryptocurrency obsession, but despite my complicated feelings I overall think he was a pretty good dude and @twitter will be worse off without him.
not sure anyone has heard but, I resigned from Twitter

There are residential houses along these streets, with nothing but a narrow sidewalk to protect the people living in them from cars going 55+ mph on a 25mph road. It’s simply too dangerous of a road, and I call on @MnDOT, @RamseyCounty, @cityofsaintpaul, and @DaiThao1 to fix it.
Constant speeding on Concordia Avenue in St. Paul inspires a mother and community activist to take matters into her own hands. streets.mn/2021/11/26/speedi…

99% of problems can be solved by a website with some JavaScript calling a Python REST API that queries an SQL database. Stop chasing the decisions of people with problems several orders of magnitude more complex than yours unless you understand why they did it.

I wonder how many people started their career in information security by figuring out how to keep notes from getting deleted off their TI calculator even though their teacher reset it?

I'm not going to say another nice thing about @SlackHQ, so listen in. /whisper the way that slack creates links by having you select the text and then pasting the link is awesome and everything should work that way /endwhisper

TIL that @Wikipedia authoritatively declares that "one nine" of availability is 90%. But then what would be "zero nines" of availability be? Asking for whoever it is that runs my code.
30% 0%
10% 9%
27% <90%
33% Any % without a 9 in it

First, start with a bunch of small repos and annoying but surmountable interoperability problems. Second, decide you can fix all those problems by moving to Bazel and a monorepo. Third, pat yourself on the back for getting down to only one insurmountable problem.
