Sometimes I think my life is a weird mix of duct-taping software together with deep dives into network programming, bursts of CTFs and uh applied infosec, mixed with educating my friends about outlaw biker gangs.

It's a good life.

Good thoughts from Tumblr (not by me):

"If courage isn’t the absence of fear but doing the right thing regardless of it, maybe confidence isn’t the absence of insecurity but knowing you have real worth despite it"

"By this same token, maybe goodness isn’t the absence of bad thoughts or impulses, but the conscious choice to behave according to your moral ideals in spite of them."

Okay, I've tried everything else, let's see what happens here. I'm a 56yo IT professional currently facing age discrimination in the job market. My skills are proven and broad. I can do operations, project management, service delivery; am versed in multiple OSs, monitoring systems, ticketing platforms. I'm a technical writer and published author. I'm willing to relocate pretty much anywhere for a job that pays enough to cover my mortgage. I need employment by Sept 30. CV on request. #job #dayjob

y'know how if you pet a cat just right and it gets over-stimulated and claws and bites you, if you don't pay attention to the early warning signs of pupil dilation and completely fanned whiskers?
yesterday I learned that dogs do this too - though it's more of a slobbery nip-fest with dogs.
the warning signs may have been about 2 seconds of hyperventilating.
