Gay or straight. Republican or Democrat. Cis or trans. Black or white. Pro-Windows or Pro-Linux. It doesn't matter. You're His and he loves you just the way you are.

Get off Facebook. Get off every Facebook service. Block Facebook. Don't work for Facebook. Don't provide services to Facebook. Find every way you can to get them out of your life and support others in doing the same.

They are ethically indefensible.

Do I have any infosec/cybersec friends willing to talk to my undergrads and grads about how they got started in security, what kinds of security job(s) they've had, and how to get your first infosec job? Would be a Wednesday evening (NY time). We can arrange details.

Boosts OK.

90% of donations to the @libreoffice projects are coming from individuals.
Companies unfortunately do not contribute that much in economical or material way on an #OpenSource project that is the major barrier between freedom of choice and a full monopoly by Microsoft in the office productivity market.

Organisations should realise that a strong LibreOffice helps in creating a healthy competition and lower also their costs.

So, please, contribute in any way you can to help yourself.

2. For security reasons, a password manager should never integrate with a web browser.

The following website shows why these two points are true.
