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?
Sounds like they did the city a favor. https://nypost.com/2020/06/05/buffalo-emergency-response-team-quits-in-solidarity-of-cops/
"Just following orders" doesn't cut it folks.
Just as it’s not legal to shell an opposing army with sarin or mustard gas, it’s also illegal to fire off commonly used riot control agents in war. Against protestors in one’s own country, however? Perfectly legal. https://bit.ly/2AH8xDU
I saw dozens of cops at the event yesterday. Cops on motorcycles, who stood stoicly as Black protesters screamed "fuck the police". Cops holding traffic at intersections. There was no violence in those cases.
The violence started when the cops *drove vehicles through crowds*.
I don’t know but they sure are incompetent. Yet another order from @Grubhub@twitter.com completely disappeared without a trace today. :(

Boston Police Headquarters currently surrounded by metal barricades, with approximately 20 bike cops standing guard. This is a fair way from the current #bostonprotest , but they're clearly preparing. Multiple helicopters overhead.
This afternoon’s #bostonprotest had such a big turn out.
I can't figure out why publications like Forbes are constantly putting out "Apple just gave 1.5 billion iPhone users a reason to switch" garbage.
Just a general tip: soap & water is more effective than hand sanitizer and hand sanitizer should really only be used if you don't have immediate access to a sink.
I'm not saying to disregard hand sanitizer completely; just that it isn't as crucial as it's being made out to be.
Great to have on-hand, but not dire if you don't have any.
I’m looking at you, Ed Markey, among others.
Please at least skim the Wikipedia article on the New Deal before you keep comparing your bill wilth cash handouts to Americans Rooseveltian.
The New Deal expressly DID NOT perform cash handouts. It created millions of jobs. So the country got something in return, and people got a sense of accomplishment. Do that.
Communication error! Looks like we’ll be closed early. Thanks for visiting!
