Weird recurring dreams

Dreams are weird and so personal that they’re useless to try to describe to somebody else. I seem to have three recurring dreams that happen occasionally and they’re kind of fascinating to me. One is where I imagine my iPhone bending and breaking up. Like it starts off as a couple of hairline cracks through […]

Booster blowup

Finally got around to getting my covid booster. Holy crap, the side effects were even worse than the 2nd dose. Hours of chills and shaking, inability to sleep, then a fever all day where I soaked anything I was wearing or laying on, then body aches and stomach cramps. Today I feel like I got […]

TL;DR it’s SHA1 with no newline We wanted to create off-line templates for our Netgear SmartManaged switches (which runs a blatant IOS CLI ripoff), but needed a way to generate the encrypted password hash from a given plaintext password: username test password test -to- username test password encrypted a94a8fe5ccb19ba61c4c0873d391e987982fbbd3 For the life of me I […]

Air, masks, and people: a rant

Air is hard. People do not seem to get it or can’t be bothered. I’ve watched this play out both during the choking California wildfires and the current Coronavirus pandemic.

#2020 what a hoot

Hashtag-2020 got off to a heck of a start. We thought 2019 was crazy and it would all be over with after December 31, then it even got worse. It seemed like every single day of 2020 there was some world event we never imagined. Earlier this year I tried to keep a file of […]
