Just one person for #followfriday today: @Are0h, whose voice I always appreciate in the fediverse even (especially) when saying things that push me out of my privileged comfort zone. Also just a very kind individual!
Plus they recently converted from Mongodb to Postgres so they're clearly heading down the right technical path ;)
Not everyday that I hit both "block" and "hide entire domain"!
For a good time, run pkg_add -u while Firefox is loaded.
Racket has serialize-lambda so you can serialize clojures and send them across the wire

okay but what if DNS changes _didn't_ take so long to propogate
So, there's been more and more talk in tech circles I follow about going back to RSS.
Honestly, I never gave it up. I read a lot of webcomics, and RSS is the best way to keep up with them.
But yes, RSS is awesome, and there's plenty of non-Google Reader options for services and apps. I like Feedbin, but it's a paid service. The Old Reader is good and free.
#OpenBSD first operating system to wave goodbye at IPv4: it's finally time to focus on IPv6. Maintenance of IPv4 has taken up resources for too long, the co-existence of both leads to complexities with inherent security issues.
I'm for one am glad to be on such a cutting edge operating system.

I've been thinking more seriously recently about leaving my software dev job and taking up a career in pentesting. If anyone has a remote or Boston-area lead, I'd love to hear it. :-)
- Strong background in web server dev (incl. front end but a little dated on that)
- Pentesting hobbyist (have been rewarded for disclosures against a handful of large sites)
- Favorite vuln type: Mismatched parsers (especially URL handling). LANGSEC stuff.
Would love to learn more OS, network stuff.
