I am glad I am patient. Just 300+ hours to go until xcode finishes downloading...

This reads like a recommendation for skiers. Snowboarding should be safe.

Fun day at Brighton today. One of the few places open for skiing/snowboarding on such warm season.

Fastly is on the news today for a widespread outage that took many big sites down.

At the same time, their stock is up almost 7%.

I guess any news is good news for the stock market and the auto trading bots.

Trying to do my part:

$ curl -sD - dcid.me | grep 'permissions-policy'

One thing I love about the noc.org DNS is the visibility it provides - including regions and resolvers.

If you want to move away from big tech and give a small provider a chance, you may like it :)

Really nice gesture here in Temecula. Covid memorial for all the lives lost.

1 white flag for each person that died.

Much respect to president Biden for this letter that he sent to his staff a few years ago.

Seems like a great example to follow.

I love the Slopes app to track the day at the mountain when we are snowboarding.

What I don't like is that I can't keep up with my kids anymore...

A Brazilian in the snow has to be careful.

Finally decided to try out @signalapp and get rid of Whatsapp.

Signal seems to be growing well with 10M+ downloads on the Google App Store.

However, a long ways to go to reach WhatsApp with 5B downloads.

Really happy with the way the NOC.org availability and performance monitoring is working.

Really good read on how the FBI caught the "twitter hacker".

Bitcoin transactions *might* appear be anonymous, but they can give out enough information & patterns to connect it to someone - specially on a high profile case (well, and bad opsec).


Does your current DNS provider gives you visibility on your DNS traffic?

This is the data for one of our small domains: dnsblacklist[.]org.

Interesting to see that Google is the #1 resolver for it.. or the traffic per hour.. or the full logs..
