Is this a phishing attempt? Goes to "githubverification.com" and asks for username and pw (if so, it nearly got me!) /cc @github

Every Trump Jr video reminds me of that time I was at a tech conference and some coked up bro was trying to sell me on blockchain waffle toasters or some shit.

This feels reminiscent of the Trump Administration’s decision to turn a lot of PPE distribution over to third party resellers (including shipments seized from private buyers “in the national interest”) early in the pandemic.

Computers are made up of other computers. You prod a bit of hardware and it's like "Surprise! I'm actually another computer in a trench coat!". Nesting isn't uncommon; they're fractal

Imagine doing federal crime based on Donald Trump Jr videos made right after he did a rail.
The man authorities linked to these Parler posts, 58-year-old Dallas resident Troy Anthony Smocks, has been arrested and charged with making the threats seen in the screenshots, @USAO_DC announced.

Buying a 4K monitor is probably the stupidest move you can make as a gamer. I've running close to that number of pixels and even a 3090 absolutely chokes on CyberPunk 2077 unless you flip off stuff.

The council is extremely displeased you have spent so much on an ultrawidescreen monitor.

The ending of Bioshock Infinite, my favorite game ending, in ultrawidescreen. Shows you some hidden stuff. !!! SPOILERS !!! I highly, highly recommend you play the game instead. Years later I still remember when I first finished it and the ending vignettes went through.

Somewhere, in the foam of reality, there is a universe where FPSRussia is still making YouTube videos. I think about this place often. We become so inured to fate. Was this destiny inexorable, in motion from first upload? Do I exist in this shard of causality? Am I happy there?

What would that Dmitri think, I ponder, about our national quagmire. Would he have words of soothing, perhaps a thickly accented mote of wisdom? A video essay about the Pancor? Bridging cultures whose narratives are in arrears? I will never know. And that is why I cry.

Information security doesn't require exclusive knowledge or information. The attackers will tell you how they do it, and how to stop it. Because that's not the limiting factor. The limiting factor is an organization's ability to take that defense information, and execute on it.
Congrats to @RGB_Lights, who used to head up NSA Tailored Access Operations. He gave a great IT defense presentation in 2016: "You know the technologies you intended to use in that network. We know the technologies that are actually in use" invidio.us/bDJb8WOJYdA

That's what they pay me for, to take the risks, get rewarded, get a mortgage, then decide to take on something too big, get fired, default on all my debts, and then become a Facebook user.
