Latacora - The PGP Problem
Just noticed rules with RDP opened to the world in AWS security group associated to new exchange servers. Removed them and immediately got a question wtf I'm doing from a colleague (he's the only one using it for administration purposes). Tried to explain why it's bad but he insisted that the servers patched against the bluekeep, etc and it's safe.
Tried to launch #sway and got this:
"Proprietary Nvidia drivers are NOT supported. Use Nouveau. To launch sway anyway, launch with --my-next-gpu-wont-be-nvidia and DO NOT report issues."
It must be one of the best error message I've seen.

Have been using it for some time now, and the main observation is this thing is for geeks. I'm not sure if an average user will want or will be even able to setup it
However protecting user data by automatically wiping the device with locked bootloader if debug cable is connected sounds like a good idea
Hmm, nope actually it seems I messed up it myself

Anyway, if you rely on BitLocker in TPM mode (boot without PIN), you should know that anyone can steal your computer, sniff 32 bytes off of the LPC bus, stick them into libbde, and decrypt your disk. Yes, it's that easy. Solder 7 wires to $favorite_fpga_board, decrypt drive.
Finally managed to install #qubes to the desktop (Ryzen / Radeon RX550) as well. Using inst.vnc option. It appears that the kernel 4.13 used in installation iso doesn't support the rx550 video card properly.
