If You Must post a screenshot of a tweet to dunk on it here, please for the love of god hide it under a CW. I left twitter because of this behaviour, I don't want to see it here.

I wrote a thing about the history of industrial control system attacks, mostly covering . It's been a problem since the year 2000 and has only became worse ever since

i have like 6 potential careers to aim for when i graduate which is....a headache. overwhelmed on where tf to start. i'd be content doing computer fixing things at a store, so i guess something basic like that would be good to start with, it also helps me to recover from uni it has been very rough :tiredcat:

i like trying to figure out software problems on PCs like idk....drivers, for instance, which seems very similar conceptually, but it's not a programmer's job

Show thread

i really like the idea of malware analysis as another job to aim for when i graduate but it's kinda weird cos i love figuring out other people's code, but i hate coding. i imagine i''d need to be working as a software dev for a while for this career option. i look at it as more IT, because you're looking at what systems are being effected and how on a deeper level than the people who wrote it in the first place

I often draw horror art, too. I like trying to make deeply unsettling things beautiful.

New introduction post, now with captions...!

Hello, my name is Gabriel, and I paint deranged monsters or pretty science- fantasy worldbuilding things with unusual designs. Sometimes both at once. I also take photos of birds occasionally, with my fz80.

Software I use is krita, blender and RawTherapee.

it's hard to look at a problem as a person who knows less but in my experience it's the best way to solve a lot of puzzles you're stuck with in life. Occam's razor and all that. in this case it was just dumb of me to approach a fantasy world as a scientifically accurate one where it doesn't serve the game's design

Show thread

got stuck in a puzzle videogame because i approached the problem as a scientist with my biology knowledge and it turns out the devs didn't go to much effort with that. fml

i have a really laggy TL here for some reason and i know bc i'm following my other account but the posts either don't show up or take 20 mins. what's with that? :o

it's starting to look like air-gapped networks are becoming an endangered species because of the Convenience of IoT and frankly that terrifies me. that's just an observation with no data to back it up, but in either case we need more of them in hospitals/infrastructure/industrial control systems not less

Show thread

extremely mad hearing talk about how hospitals can secure their IoT devices that could kill people if compromised when the discussion should start and end with: stop. air gap that shit

i am a good artist but i am very bad at being an artist because my information consumption sensibilities are entirely in the science camp. if you've ever used MRI or ECG/etc software....You Know

this tweet brought to you by STILL wrestling wordpress and having to work to make things look nice because the world expects this of me. just take my website and go. but no, everyone expects things to have round corners and lots of UI pictures and nice colours. unbelievable, honestly

my favourite architecture style is brutalism which is why i miss the old early 2000s deviantart + furaffinity before idk 4? years ago design. its like, the web equivalent. bare bones, square and ugly, but nothing distracting or extravagant i just want to use a website bLEASE

CSS is just adjusting margins and padding over and over until you die

it is SO annoying, why does this happen, and why doesn't it happen on my linux boot (i unpair devices from windows first bc i know it causes problems, to be clear - connections work, they just don't go auto.) can i make windows not do this?

Show thread

me: turns on PC bluetooth
every single device in my house that has ever been connected to my windows install, even if presently being used by my phone: yes hello i'm urs now

i just found out the cat emotes exist and now i am compelled to find reasons to use every single one of them
