A (mostly) unstructured stream-of-consciousness dedicated to life, tech and infosec minutiae.
Captain's Log (April 28, 2022)
- I’ve got a number of interesting posts in-flight. At this rate I’ll have them ready for in July .
- I’ve debuted two new Shellsharks doodles, one for World Circus Day and one for Earth Day.
- A new episode is incoming! (Working on editing now and hoping to publish tomorrow.)
What I’m Learning
- I’m going to pull the trigger on a LeetCode Premium sub. I also got back into HackerRank and started knocking out some of those challenges.
- Currently reading Bulletproof TLS and PKI (2nd edition) and Threat Modeling (by Adam Shostack).
- Officially started Offensive Security’s WEB-300 course. With any luck I’ll be taking the OSWE exam in June.
- In the midst of all this other stuff, I’m also learning as much platform security/engineering as I can (e.g. AWS/Cloud, Kubernetes/Containers, APIs/Microservices, etc…) I’m even thinking of dropping in on some sessions at PlatformCON 2022.
- Summer is upon me and I’ve been wanting to upgrade my desk space with a fan. I recently picked up Dyson’s Pure Cool TP01 fan in White/Silver. I really like the aesthetic and low-profile. The air-power is pretty good and it even has some air-purification capability. The only complaint I have so far is there is a mechanical whine at power level 6 (randomly) which is not present on any other level. I’d say overall it’s decently quiet but not anything astounding. For now I think I’ll be keeping it.
- Finished The Punisher on Prime. I really enjoyed it.
- Currently watching Marvel’s Moon Knight. That’s good so far.
- The Halo TV show is in full swing. For super-fans of the OG games, this show has been pretty awesome.
- As if I haven’t watched enough Marvel stuff lately, I’m considering binging the Daredevil TV series next.
- Even though Lebron didn’t make it, I’m of course still watching the NBA Playoffs. Boston looks like a strong choice to win it all at this point.
- TSLA had a reported stock split incoming, however no new news yet…
- Looks like Twitter to Elon Musk is happening. I think a lot of improvements can be made to the service and Elon seems motivated to do so. I mostly just hope this doesn’t take too much mindshare from his other ventures I am more interested in (*cough* Cybertruck *cough*).
- Tesla’s Cyber Rodeo celebrated the opening of Giga Texas. It was also at this event that Elon asserted Cybertruck production would begin next year (2023). To say I’m excited would be an understatement!
- Warm weather means brewery season! Here’s a few I visited this month…
