Good with a keyboard and fluent in gibberish

Two facts about me:

This is a follow-up to my previous post about building with containers. It turns out, there’s a way to run ARM containers on AMD64 systems.

So, as part of Gamebear, I want to use some software that’s not part of the Raspbian package repositories, namely uMTP-Responder and gt.

On April 29, SaltStack made releases to Salt v2019.2 and v3000 to fix some CVEs. It turns out, these are pretty serious CVEs. And they’re being exploited in the wild.

So I had an idea. What if we could take PursuedPyBear and stick it in a handheld? And make it easily editable by anyone we walked up to at a conference?

I have seen the light! Let’s Encrypt is well poised to become the SSL key manager for those of us who don’t want to think about TLS. It’s easy to setup and configure, and generally just does the right thing.

So one thing lead to another, and now I have the UniEmoji input method installed. Which means I can now (sometimes) type “💩” without dropping into character map.

As part of Oh My ZSH, there is a plugin called z. Basically, it maintains a list of the most popular directories you cd to and lets you jump to them quickly.

So I’ve had the idea for a long time to write myself a little script that would configure VLC/Gstreamer/etc to pipe a video file in to v4l2loopback to expose it as a virtual webcam. Then I can just “play” it in Google Hangouts and have virtual movie watching parties, without silly things like “Ok, everyone hit play on 3!”

So a little while ago, Yubico and GitHub had a promotion where you could get one of the YubiKey U2F devices for $5.
