I appreciate money being funneled into OSS. I don’t appreciate it being a PR campaign so we forget they stated to ignore software licenses to push their commercial product. github.blog/2022-06-24-thank-y

I thought about giving Valorant a shot as I enjoy watching it.

- installed Val
- random anti cheat protection installs as well and needs to auto start
- game won’t launch because the cheat protection requires secure boot to be enabled
- uninstalled Val

Do you have a smart speaker?

I don't, and I'm contemplating doing a video about why I don't have one (and probably won't ever have one).

I'd love to hear perspectives (especially if you work in cybersecurity or a related field).

Boosts welcome!

I was never disappointed by Dell monitors. I think it’s the old brand I would ever blindly recommend to anyone looking for an office monitor without double checking specs or if they randomly do stupid. Looking at you LG…

„I’ll say upfront that according to Microsoft’s interpretation of the situation (invoking fair use), it doesn’t matter to them which license you use: they’ll use your code regardless. In fact, some proprietary code was found to have been incorporated into the model.“

All you need to know at this point about the risk using copilot and what you sign up for using GitHub.


Four countries already made the call, time for the rest to step up as well isgoogleanalyticsillegal.com

Working in infosec means "can't talk about it" is either referring to something awesome or terrifying. And occasionally both at once.

Microsoft's Github Copilot is disregarding Free Software licenses and will be happily selling parts of your GPL code against your will! Woo!


As the author of this article says - free software should be dependant on free software architecture - I recommend codeberg.org as an open-source alternative to Github.
Sadly Github is no longer a platform that can be trusted.

I just witnessed a truck (as in 7.5t) trying to drift around a corner. Didn’t end well. Something new every day…

This isn’t necessarily because the rules would be complex or vlans being overly complicated. This is simply ubiquiti unify being a dumpster fire for any slightly off standard configuration

I avoided it for as long as possible but with the second rack getting closer to going live I’ll finally have to setup vlans and proper routing… I really don’t want to :(

And today in „just don’t bother doing OSS“… as if there weren’t enough problems to fix to make OSS more sustainable and easier to work on. Suggestions like this surely will help… news.ycombinator.com/item?id=3

I am consistently impressed with the thorough and public disclosure of Cloudflare's outages. They are an example of how you should handle communication regarding outages.

Apparently a configuration error to increase resiliency led to a major outage. And it was not caused by the summer solstice, as I had feared

Any software license not compatible with Apache will get in the way of adopting software licensed under it.

It is obviously fine if you want a software license representing your values, such as no military use, anti racist,… you name it - I will always support you upholding your values.

But never forget software acquisition in companies follows standards involving legal. You license will not make it past the lawyers.

No matter how well meant the additional clauses are. Just keep this in mind

New Windows 11 Privacy Auditing features allow you to see history of sensitive device access like the Microphone or Camera.

x-callback-url support makes some apps way more usable than you’d imagine. Also my favourite editor is now capable of supporting my note taking workflow :>

And there I just thought there was a lack of infosec drama the last few weeks. But you can always rely on someone being an idiot.

Good to see the org reacting quickly. Especially appreciate the speakers who pulled their talk giving a clear signal that behaviour like this won’t be tolerated.
