Pinned toot

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?

New definition of labor Vs capital:
do you own a bunker? Capital
No bunker? Labor.

In the oncoming climate apocalypse, all other class distinctions will be meaningless.

Pirating shit PSA:

Piracy is theft. It doesn't matter if the system is broken, artists will only get pennies if you pay, or you apparently listen to different music every second of every day. It's still theft.

Good news, we were.

Or bad news I guess if you're the people who are mad at me for daring to suggest that piracy is theft. Which it is.

Let's just hope we're within the deicing holdover time.

: receiving reports relative to malfunctioning traffic signals along Mass Ave. Motorists asked to exercise extra caution in that area. @BostonBTD@twitter.com has been notified.

BOS ground is busy tonight with snow operations.

"Who's under tow on A short of L?"

When you lose an airplane...

And now runway 9 is closed for cleaning.

Sorry, dry snow. Same on runway 4R. But it's 3000 ft longer.

100% 1/4 inch hard snow on runway 9.

Mmm Logan switching up runways due to contamination (aka probably snow/ice).

The A380 is not a particularly beautiful airplane. But it's sure big!

So excited: might finally get to fly on the upper deck of a 747-400 today.

I'm pleased to announce I've taken a job as @awscloud@twitter.com's new head of marketing.
AWS: "Wait, we didn't--"
While AWS may not be aware that I've been offered this role, much less accepted, I don't see why that should matter.

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. twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/st
