Perhaps this should be subtitled Why I’ll Never Work at Microsoft. I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know where to begin, as the song goes. I started writing here on a whim. I don’t look at the traffic it may or may not get, and I haven’t accepted any comments or feedback to date; it’s simply a place for some thoughts, observations, and a tip or two, […]

openssl... let me count the ways I hate you....

I put a script or two on github; generates a CA and server and client certs, suitable (I hope!) for openvpn and https and all that. Based on the easy-rsa scripts, but I didn’t find them that easy to use. A haiku to openssl: openssl a black crane over the lake may you rot in hell                   Image is Hokusai’s “Mount […]

Various others have posted about this over the years, but I hadn’t been in a very, very long time […]

shotgun scanning

UDP scanning has always been slow. Slower than slow, slower than molasses, really fucking slow. So when I started being interested in scanning for IPMI out in the wild, which runs on UDP 623, I first fired up trusty ol’ nmap… but bless it’s heart, it’s a cautious, robust scanner that is outrun by crippled snails on UDP scanning. So I thought… well, most scans don’t really need a request-response-follow-up… […]

More than this?

Lost in Translation is really a fabulous movie – if you’ve travelled a lot while being in monogamous relationships (and probably a guy, or at least of a certain mindset), and in particular tokyo or somewhere that is really alien. The sense of awe and aloneness… and the grandeur of tokyo, which I’m already in love with… Sofia just nailed that one. I don’t know what I’d think if […]
