you know you've been gameing too much when you see a car and say "nice screen space reflections" out loud

So despite all of my fears and hand-wringing, I managed to set up two VMs with duplicate mac addresses and DHCP gave them the correct IP addresses without the world coming to an end.

I think security is important, so when I change my password I make sure to tear the post-it off the pad before I write the password on it

I've seen those spy movies where they use the indentations on the pad to recreate what someone wrote, they won't get MY password that way

Woooo finished the second stage of the space elevator and unlocked tiers 5 and 6.

lol someone linked a news story, but because my instance is based in the EU, the preview card says it's not available in my region even though my browser fetches it fine

But if this has any noticeable effect on air flow, I might be able to put off learning how to mod my PC just a little bit longer. :)

Today in random projects, I mounted a hand-me-down crypto GPU fan to a hand-me-down laptop stand. I can't believe I was able to get the screws to line up.

I regret not getting on the "different email for every service" bandwagon earlier, but I guess it's never too late to start. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Despite hating it for many years, today I'm thinking that I actually love the idea of a login ID being distinct from both your email address and your public display name.

I was thinking about security today, and I decided to find out how many sites I had saved in lastpass.


I'm pretty happy that it's possible for me to actually maintain the ability to get back into those sites without having reused any of my passwords. But it's pretty exhausting to think about that kind of threat surface for breaches.
