Software engineer - I have a love/hate relationship with the Linux kernel.
I love my rescue dogs and cats and all the rest of the critters here.
I have a filthy face.

This is what a traitor to the United States looks like in 2024.
His name is Tucker Carlson.
He took a large amount of money from Vladimir Putin to interview him, give him a hyped up positive spin, and then blame President Biden for the war in Ukraine.
Putin paid Trump to block US aid to Ukraine and now he's paying Tucker Carlson to shine his image and throw dirt on President Biden.

So, reading the comments from my other post actually brings up some questions for me, I think we've all met people who seem to overestimate their abilities and equally we have met people who seem to underestimate their abilities. What is the difference? Is it misplaced confidence, narcissism, low self esteem? Do we need people who will just make decisions when necessary or is consensus always the path? Is Dunning-Kruger real?
I think in this post Trump Presidency era we all have questions about this, but honestly, that even started in the Bush era, are these men actually "dumb" or is this much more sinister?
Going to court today for a personal matter. Having done a few I know what to expect, but I can't imagine how nerve wrecking itd be for someone with no background. 😔
There's a huge disconnect for me rn in the IT space. Companies love to talk about an increasing deficit of smart, talented and skillful people available to help defend the cybers. Welp, a lot of those people are somehow now seeking gainful employment bc they've been laid off. Which is just nuts to me given the sheer scale, resources and effort our adversaries are throwing at everything now.
p.s. AI isn't going to fix anyone's security problems. If anything, it's going to compound them by orders of magnitude (at least in terms of data governance).
Virtually every cryptographer alive today has either read David Kahn's The Codebreakers or learned the field from someone who did. We lost him last week.
I first met David about 25 years ago. You'll read much about his influence. I will remember also that he was a remarkably kind gentleman.

Yawn, my current phone provider has been showing me 'Possible spam call' for over a year here for some of the calls. That helps, and for other calls if there is no caller id information I just ignore the call. If it is legit they will leave me a voicemail.
Well. Well. Well. Slouching toward VPhood.
Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley that she doesn't think former President Donald Trump should be disqualified from the ballot due to his legal troubles.
The thing about #tech #layoffs that people who haven’t been through it often don’t understand is that morale never recovers. The employees who remain will never have the same relationship with that company, bosses or peers.
Watching people you respect pack their stuff and crying on the phone with their spouses is something that never goes away. When I survived a layoff in my 20s I became a “do exactly what the ticket says” person. I stopped suggesting ideas, providing feedback, believing anything a manager told me.
If you are a company considering layoffs, especially a profitable company, you should approach it as “this department will have 100% turnover”. The second I got another job offer I left that company and six months later nobody who had been there at the time of layoffs remained.
I’ve seen that pattern play out multiple times.

More than 10,000 research papers were retracted in 2023 — a new record
The number of articles being retracted rose sharply this year. Integrity experts say that this is only the tip of the iceberg
Starting schematic work on the DDR4 interface for GROVER.
Lots of reading to do and things to double check, since DDR4 changes quite a few things compared to DDR3.
David Mills, a true Internet pioneer, passed away on January 17, 2024. Probably best known for having led the development and maintenance of #NTP for decades, he was also involved in a great deal of early Internet protocol development.
Okay, I'm thinking about gift giving today. A little backstory about why:
Every year my Father-in-law attempts to get my Mother-in-law a gift. She is a bit of a shopper, and is notoriously difficult to shop for. Every year he gets her something he guesses a woman would like (perfume, sweater, jewelry), and every year she doesn't really like it, and ends up begrudgingly using it or returns it. They have been married over 30 years, and seem to have a pretty good marriage otherwise. It's like she wants him to magically understand what she wants, and he is sort of equally bad at the whole thing too. I will never understand why they don't just have a conversation about this. Just for extra fun, she is the most bizarre gift giver, also, to the point that it has become an annual tradition that I show my friends what she got us. A small list of things we have gotten:
A couch cover with grapes on it
A sexy nightgown
A painting of the house they live in
A gourd painted to look like a cat eating a bird
A package of tea that I would have absolutely loved, stuffed with cheap tea bags
Children's Lego sets
Underwear that didn't fit either of us
A wooden board covered in seashells that is supposed to hold a curling iron
A waterproof bed cover
I could go on and on. Just to clarify this doesn't bother me or my husband at all, we actually get a kick out of the weirdness. I don't personally care about presents much, I'm more of an experiences person.
SO, if you've managed to get this far, how do you feel about gift giving/getting? Feel free to elaborate and give examples!
It amazes me that there are people that believe that if the Confederacy had won that they would have ended slavery on their own, when America is actively doing wage slavery, when there are still more People of Color in prison, when we are still dealing with the legacy of redlining. It feels like it never ended at all.
Dont forget to thank the local NTP Gods for just making sure that you have not thought about NTP for the past year

lol at people trying to retcon history and pretend the Y2K bug wasn't real.
I literally worked for like a year from late 1998 to the end of 1999 to fix databases of utility companies and health systems to not, you know, completely and utterly fail come January 1st, 2000.
Since I'm on Transphobes today, I'll ask a question.
So much of the time with famous transphobes, all they have to do to not come under scrutiny is just keep their stupid mouths shut, why can't they? What do they really think will happen? Why do they care so much about something that doesn't actually affect them at all?
Hi Nikki Haley.
Via Wes Lowery:
fearing Lincoln’s election would lead to the national abolition of slavery (a hyperbolic, reactionary response), a series of southern states seceded from the union and formed an avowedly white supremacist confederacy of slave states. that was the cause of the civil war.
PS: Stop telling me how much better Haley is than Trump. She’s not. Every single GOP Fascist Party candidate would take us straight to hell. 1/..
