"The chorus of laughter in these flames is from hearing you think time is a gift, or that demons are the damned. God invented time to kill you, Gabriella. Each clockface has two hands – one to beat the life out of you, the other to put you back on the wall until your expiration."

Certified hyper-genius Hank Green agrees
DO NOT LINK TO ASSHOLES WITH BAD PODCAST OPINIONS. THAT IS THEIR BUSINESS MODEL.

"These malicious ads are clever too. [ When ] browser's dev tools opened (to record the redirect event), they will go to an entirely different endpoint. When the tools are closed, they go to the malicious endpoint." switches on Cache-Control: no-cache or Pragma: no-cache header
Incredible, it appears as though Google is allowing malicious sites to take-over Brave search terms to target the vulnerable. Consider this site, which uses a homoglyph in the URL to look official. The download is flagged as malicious by several security vendors. Please report!

I've also been tracking Nzyme by @_lennart nzyme.org/ You can run this on a RasPi with good WiFi monitor hw, and then over Ethernet do appropriate reporting of various attacks.

I used white silicone bumpers on the cameras and white spraypaint on the PIR motion sensors to ensure direct sunlight on hot days doesn't make them ineffective.

Note this is totally nonsensical, somebody is just going to taze me walking to my car and steal my backpack. But it's a fun game to wargame out home security stuff.

Cameras have motion push alerts and Alexa voice notification. Network closet on on UPS, underground utilities. As a low-power more failsafe backup, I have 8 solar charged exterior motion sensors generally laid out according to the lights on my base station. Each sector diff sound

Next, I need security shatter film on all glass, and for bedroom windows/rear door getting security shutters like these. Bonus: Excellent thermal insulation when away or very hot days.

(The security shutters are more of a posturing move for internet content, but long term I think they would be nice to have. The glass film is far more reasonable.)

If you want a personal security nightmare go watch Upstream Color. Don't read the reviews or watch a trailer. And don't come back here saying this tweet didn't describe the movie correctly at all.

Today I was thinking about the trajectory of security-critical software and code in my lifetime. And the largest theme is moving towards simplicity of configuration. I don't understand what philosophies and realities drove decisions of the past for endless variables and footguns.

In Germany these are commonplace and usually automated, often set on a timer even.

Not just laypeople. Can't tell you how often I see this mindset in tech -- usually framed as "of course there's fifty thousand steps, it's ~secure~"
Laypeople mistake friction with security.

Replying to @SwiftOnSecurity
In Germany these shutters are basically the norm. Really helps in winter and summer to regulate inside temperatures
