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?

Alright, I'm really done newsgroup hunting for the night.

Dear Internet: if you find me a live archive of comp.binaries.psion with files from 1997 you will be my BFF.

Is FTP even a thing anymore?

Alas, my attempts to find a live archive of comp.binaries.psion have thus far been thwarted. I should really go to bed...

cableol.co.uk WHOIS excerpt:

Relevant dates:
Registered on: before Aug-1996

Because we just didn't think that keeping track of registration dates was that important before August 1996.

I wonder if this woman on the bus realizes just how much she's projecting her voice as she talks on the phone about her mother's medical problems and guilt trips...

Shoutout to Best Spouse for having mailed the new coffee carafe to me because I might not drink coffee, but my love of boxes is catlike.

Love is putting your spouse's name on all the online orders because you know how much they love opening packages, even when it's socks or new measuring spoons.

Wright for the 9th with a one run lead. Bold move Cora.

C'mon JD, time for number 42, gotta catch back up with Khrush!

RT @lizcovart@twitter.com: Awww! We Red Sox fans and Mets fans just came together with a Yankees Suck! cheer. (They’re losing to Toronto.) Coming on the heels of Sweet Caroline, that really did feel “So Good!”

Love to see the cooperation and community spirit supporting our first responders during this major incident.

Use Lyft. Always a better decision.

That was an absolutely abominable call by NY. MLB should be ashamed. It's physically impossible for a ball that bounces up off the Green Monster to not be a home run per Fenway ground rules.

C'mon . It's the freaking Mets. We can do better.
