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?

just now finding out that postgresql's TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE does not actually store a time zone :thojne:

I learned about thispersondoesnotexist.com/ the other day. It is super creepy good. Many (most?) faces it generates are totally plausible or have only minor defects.

I need a social and chat aggregator. I hate having to switch between Slack, Discord, Mastodon, and still sometimes Twitter and Facebook.

Please to be inventing. I will to be buying.

Is it just me, or does Steam make you verify your e-mail address more often than basically any app or site out there?

I am very very bad at GTA V.

Lately, I'm also bad at buying games that I won't hate, apparently. Maybe I should just stop buying games.

Has anyone played the Anthem VIP/beta/whatever it's called? Is it any good?

My game night crew is talking about it and I'm slightly trigger-shy after the Fallout 76 fiasco (aka, pre-ordering and then hating it. Also, is it any better yet?)

You know you're a geek when someone boosts some photos someone took in an airport terminal, and you recognise your local airport... :D

Huh, I hadn't heard that Airbus is discontinuing the A380. That was fast.

Kelly Clarkson's rendition of "It's Quiet Uptown" is giving me chills. Or it could be the 29°F air from the jetbridge. Not sure. But it's a solid rendition I don't remember liking that much when I've listened before.

Finished Hamilton proper on PIT-ORF so now it's on to the mixtape and Hamildrops before looping back if necessary. :)

Met a fellow Tim at DTW Wendy's, a pilot flying off to Harrisburg PA. Fly safe pilot Tim!

DTW-ORF, where it is a CRJ900 but a slightly crappier and somehow smaller feeling one.

I've seen enough icing-related crashes on Air Disasters to be okay with the delay of de-icing.

We have to de-ice? It's completely clear out... Oh well, better safe than sorry I guess. Maybe the plane was here overnight or something.

Of course now I don't know if the paper boarding pass they printed me in PIT without asking will still work. Electronic it is.

Oh! They switched equipment and it is another CRJ900. Changed my seat so I will now have sat in the same seat on every leg of this trip. :)

I love the future. Changing seats after check-in on my phone.
