I'm considering bumping up my desktop to Ubuntu 19.10 this weekend. It's an older machine so I usually run into a few minor issues.

Anyone out there using an OSS PKI or CA solution? Everything that I find just looks out of date.

Anyone in a devops environment have recommendations for open source alerting and escalation? I'm looking for an alternative to PagerDuty or OpsGenie.

I'm taking a few minutes to re-explore Jamendo. Hopefully I can find a few new indie bands to add to my music collection.

My favorite IT auditors are the ones that say "We must have screenshots because text files can be edited".

Anyone out there using Tox? I've been cleaning up old social media references on my sites, and this looks like something worth trying out.

I think that I'm going to read this tonight just to see what all the noise is about.

This is the Las Vegas weather forecast for the week.That 10km/h breeze feels just like a high heat/low fan hair dryer blowing in your face.

My evil plan to create a second Mastodon account is in motion. I created @stegosaurus to publish some smaller steganography samples on a more frequent basis.

The IT Director at my former employer gave me this. I think he was trying to pick a fight. 😀

I've seen a lot of cool and not-so-cool stuff happen in an agile shop. The coolest was watching my team take ownership of writing their own user stories and self-grooming them into anticipated future sprints before the actual planning session. The least cool was being invited to a daily 1 hour "scrum" with 44 other people.

I forgot that I had an ello account that I created when the site first launched. I logged in yesterday to discover that it was being followed by a few questionable accounts even though I have not posted. They have revamped the into an art community. I'm not much of an artist, but I my push some of my stego images in that direction.

I took this while out for a walk in Boulder City. Now I know that the area is safe from Lord Zedd.

The Fry's ad for this week gives me hope that there are musical instruments that I can play.

I've been doing some experiments with adding an unobtrusive image ID to the images that I post so that I can identify them a bit quicker. So many sites are stripping the EXIF data from images so I can't rely on that. Thoughts?

BTW, I took this pic when my former employer sent me to Lima, Peru. I was glad that they chartered a bus to get to the office.

I realize that most everyone is further along than me, but here goes... Happy Monday everyone.

Yes, I'm tempting the fates. The flash flood warning has ended so I'm taking the car through a car wash.
