In the spirit of @sehurlburt on Twitter: I'm always open to helping with questions about systems engineering, network engineering, DNS, SRE, working at Google, working in the infosec business, starting a business without VC, or anything else you can think of!
I'm Tim. I'm a geek. I love systems, networks, and software. I started DynDNS.org (now dyn.com, an Oracle company, of which I have no part). I now work at Google. All opinions are my own.
Bitcoin is fun to play with. Tor is becoming more and more important with each passing day. Crypto isn't just for nerds anymore.
The world's political situation is scary. Does anyone have any rocks I can hide under?
The irony of course is, Trump’s disregard for our laws, our Constitution, and the integrity of our civil institutions is akin to him stomping all over our flag. He is the last person to hand out kudos on respecting symbols of America. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1216750167954804736
Again: no you can't copyright a toot, unless it's really long like a blogpost or something. Copyright law is more fucked than you could imagine.
The question is... do I really need them? I mean, who would send me Bitcoin? Without confirming where to send it first? I don't know. BUT IT COULD HAPPEN! #fomo?
I mean, the actual switching is easy, but being confident you got everything is less so. Especially in a world of cryptocurrencies.
I have old Electrum wallets that I haven't actively used in years but I've got this terrible fear that someone will send something to them and I won't have the keys anymore so I must keep them!
Geek of systems, networks, and software. Lover of privacy, crypto, and free speech. All opinions are my own.
Got questions? Ask, I'm always happy to try to answer!
