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?

Liz told me to ask Sprocket to look cute so she could have a photo. His response:

"I always look cute."

Huh, I forgot I still had an unused neur.io monitoring device because the one I installed in our old place was beta hardware...

Now I have to decide if I want to install it or get a Sense for the new place. I really like the Sense UI better, but I haven't tried Neurio's new Generac-branded UI since they were bought out.

But do I want to install something in my electrical box that I might later want to remove? That's a lot of work...

Why are we replaying this? Literally nobody cares. It is completely irrelevant.

I love outdoor rock concerts and live music, but I’m totally “that” person who brings ear plugs. Very excited to see The Who tonight at Fenway Park! I was also excited to visit our brick.

Is Alphabet/Google going to ever address the David Drummond allegations or...?? So far, the company has let Drummond's statement stand alone with no response on whether it will investigate the allegations etc.

In the past two days I have encountered about 6 different projects at work with sufficient scope to a) take up the next 5 years or so of my career and b) get me promoted the next two levels.

As my manager said when I told him this: "now you just have to do them".

On a different note, totally pumped for this weekend's concerts, The Who tomorrow, Billy Joel on Saturday.

Yes, I'm a dork.

I will admit to being intrigued by how Stellar's notion of more "real" accounts is different from BTC's. Though I'm not sure it actually is different, just a different idea.

On the plus side Trezor (sort-of) supports Stellar so I've claimed my "money" and will hold onto it in case this becomes something real.

LOL they built a cryptocurrency wallet into Keybase? Way to jump the shark, guys.

Dear Panera Bread: no, your unsubscribe page does not need my location, and I most certainly am not going to give it to you.

Ugh I hate the fragmentation of streaming. Why do I have to use Discovery Go to watch Gold Rush when it's included with my YouTube TV, they just don't want to let it be on the YTTV VoD platform? Discovery Go's app is garbage. 😕

I find it hilarious that "Dolby Cinema" is AMC's (and maybe others?) premium screen brand now, when "Dolby" by itself used to be the lowest possible theatre sound.

Though I suppose if you go back further original Dolby was the hot new thing at some point too. Just feels like a full circle thing.

Saw The Matrix today. I feel like it holds up pretty well. I imagine the sequels, not so much.

Or maybe they do hold up well, they're just holding up to their original crappiness so they're still not good...
