So ...let's face it. A LOT of folks in tech circles are somewhat amazed a fully #blind person can even find the power button on a computer, let alone operate it professionally. I am such a person, and I'd like to bust that myth.
It's also true that many #hacking tools, platforms, courses etc. could use some help in the #accessibility department. It's a neverending vicious circle.
Enter my new twitch channel, IC_null. On this channel, I will be streaming #programming and #hacking content including THM, HTB and who knows what else, from the perspective of a #screenReader user.
What I need, is an audience. If this is something you reckon you or anybody you know might be interested in, drop the channel a follow or share this post. Gimme that #infoSec Mastodon sense of comradery and help me out to make this idea an actual thing :) #tryHackMe #streamer #selfPromo

I think if I was a YouTube influencer the first thing I'd do is create a makeshift normal-size mic holder. Those tiny things held with 2 fingers just look ridiculous.

The most important thing about A and AAAA DNS records is that they're also the noises you make when you realize the problem is DNS again.

I didn't like autotools before it was cool.

Had to emergency-move the mail server on Friday/over the weekend. Glad I had trialled mailcow already, I'm using this now over docker-mailserver. Wasn't bad but I liked mailcow more and it has a few things that seem better but I couldn't run it for technical reasons.
So this marks the end of 15 years of running on the same IP address at Strato, gonna cancel that server ASAP, as their support simply sucks. You call them with "hey, my VPS with 6 cores shows a load of 0-1 but everything is so slow that single commands take a minute and a reboot takes an hour, I've had this in the past, please check your hardware" and "nah, our monitoring doesn't say anything". So I had migrated off of that box before I got a response to the email ticket I had written before the call.
Hetzner Cloud it is for now, unless I decide I want to get a dedicated box again, but I doubt it. Also seriously thought about ending the self-hosting experiment of either 16-20 years (I simply don't remember). #ryoms
