It rarely hurts to help. Nobody likes you

    A man with a healing broken leg makes it to the top of the CTA Blue line stair to the sidewalk. He then takes two steps and falls hard. I was too far back to catch him without risking injuring others. Soooo many other people were NOT too far back to help. When I got there I did what I could to help. Others were recording with cellphones.

    The likes are FAKE. Grow up.

DJI Mini 2 SE gimbal mount upgrade

    The DJi Mini 2 SE has a huge flaw. The camera gimbal is flimsy, comes apart easy, and costs approximately $80-120 to have repairs "professionally done. I opt'd to design a mount that attaches to the oem location under the gimbal dampener mount and provides the stability required while allowing for full travel of movement in every direction.

    As you can clearly see I am many many MANY versions in and am not sure where this will end up. Best of luck to myself.

    Printing another one...

    Version 3.0~ish. Seems pretty weak. Decent concept to improve on though.

I'm going to switch back to Ubuntu as a daily driver

    Because i'm so damn tired of Windows just installing bull$#!@ whenever it wants.

The pursuit

    In the digital realm, where circuits hum,
    Dwell minds unique, where thoughts do come.
    In the cyber sea, where bytes align,
    Lives a world where differences shine.
    For some, the dance of social grace,
    Is a labyrinth, a daunting space.
    Neurodivergent souls traverse,
    Navigating with minds diverse.
    In pixels and code, they find their home,
    Where judgments fade, and they can roam.
    Yet, in the dance of human interaction,
    They may find challenge, a subtle distraction.
    Misunderstood, they often feel,
    As social cues, they struggle to reel.
    In the whirlwind of conversations fast,
    They may find themselves outcast.
    But let us pause, and take a glance,
    Beyond the surface, give them a chance.
    For in their minds, brilliance gleams,
    Innovative thoughts, vibrant dreams.
    Their quirks and idiosyncrasies,
    Are part of what makes them, if you please.
    So let's embrace their unique way,
    And make room for them in the cyber fray.
    For in understanding, we may find,
    That differences enrich humankind.
    So let's build a world where all belong,
    Inclusion, acceptance, our hearts' song.

Hide my plaques inside the closet, I just can't explain it.

What is my trick to staying certified?!

    Never let them expire and use continuing education to my advantage. Never stop learning! Your SANS CEUs can be used for Comptia and/or isc, etc. DYOR.

    Hey! Guess what?!, new banner! bam, in your face.

I'm GIAC GSOC certified now!

    I supposed the study time and SANS SEC450 6 day "bootcamp" did help. To each their own. I learn better on my own.

    Now back to securing the world I love.
