I hate it when I get all pumped up like this. Its 1:13am and I’ve been listening to fast paced EDM, techno, and electronic for the last 5 hrs trying to get through all the work thats in front of me. I got about 3 hrs of sleep last night because I’m fighting off a head cold and if I wasn’t melting my ears consistently I’d be asleep in my chair, drooling on myself. When I don’t have anywhere to be in the morning, I actually really enjoy these times. My productivity goes through the roof, I solve issues that I’ve had for months, and I can usually back off work for a couple of days afterwards. However the next day is shit.
I took my team to the Red Sky 2017 Security conference today. Its local, fairly inexpensive, and gave my team some insight into what a disaster the current state of security really is. You can do a lot, but a motivated individual will almost always find a way. So the conference, decent swag, kinda limited, spose it was only a one day conference. Continental breakfast, box lunch, free but limited sodas, and drinks (non-alcoholic of course). Mitnick was entertaining, and most of the speakers in the separate talks were pretty good. A few were a little dry, it may have just been a bit too warm. My S4 camera is shit, so the pictures are mediocre at best, almost not better than nothing. They forgot to provide power (probably on purpose) but did provide tables, and wifi, including the required “this is a security conference, these are trained individuals, use the wifi at your own risk, we provide no security” (reminded me of defcon) but seemed like a cop-out to me. I think I’ll go prepared next year to catch some packets and see if I can’t at least map the topology.
If I had a New Years resolution, it would have been to post to keeg.org more often. Since I managed to post like 3 times last year, I suppose I’m rockin that. But I did plan on multiple times a week… I haven’t managed that.
I’m currently house hunting. Not sure I ever thought I’d own a house. Sure, I dreamt a bit about it, but I also dreamt a bit about having 72 virgins, and a million dollars per virgin, but I guess not all dreams come true. Or maybe they do and I’ll finally have the opportunity to see if I can stack 72 virgins into a giant statue of Sifl using jizzed up dollars to hold them all together. Some day soon. Anyway, house hunting. Here I thought my needs and wants in a house would be much simpler and ideally draw me to less expensive housing than the average house buyer. This doesn’t seem to be the case. I also find it amazing how different yet the same all houses are. I was originally hoping for something a bit unquie, and perferably not in the heart of subur

So one of my Xmas presents was a Amazon Echo. I pulled it out last night while there were a few guys over. Mind you, this is five nearly 40 year old men, most with children, and one or two you might call “mature”.
Comad I think needs more sex, he seemed to be overly focused on semen and the mating rituals of body-less AI’s. I think Godoloju managed the best responses from the Alexia, but I think he was cheating, looking up questions.
I’m not sure if it was Buddah or Usuaggie, but one of these two jackasses attempted to order me five brand new fleshlights. Somehow Alexia got the order wrong (could it have been me screaming “NO” while 4 asshats all screamed “Yes” that messed it up?), and ordered me Knobble’s instead. But put a password on that shit real quick.
