ITT-Technical Institute Shuts Down

        It’s been a couple of weeks that the college I graduated from is officially no more. I’m happy to see its gone for good. If anything, it should be a big warning towards other private for-profit schools that operate in a similar fashion. Shortly after I enrolled in the ITT-Tech campus […]

The following are my 2016 New Year resolutions in no particular order: Lose the weight I gained in 2015 Learn Portuguese Buy a house Become the vagrant-notify maintainer Learn Docker Collect all NECA Iron Maiden action figures Learn Go Continue to call out Donald Trump on his bullshit

Bye 2015

What crazy year 2015 turned out to be. A year where I turned 29. A year where terrorism hit very close to home.

OpenBSD – Theo de Raadt

Interesting interview with OpenBSD founder Theo de Raddt. Theo opinions on mitigations, managing the OpenBSD project, it’s current challenges, and future. As well as full disclusure, breaking backwards compatibility, and 64-bit. Behind OpenBSD, Windows comes in second with operating system exploit mitigations enabled. FreeBSD doesn’t have any active auditing of their source tree. Everyone uses […]

Patent Trolls

I’m very glad to see John Oliver bring up our absurd legal patent system in his Television program. Anyone with a brain should be against the notion of software patents. Not only does it stop innovation, it literally hurts our economy as whole. To put it into perspective, recently Apple who themselves are one of […]
