2019-05-27T20:55:32Z via Identi.ca Web To: Public CC: FollowersGet ready for a LOT more mosquitos, when there are fewer bats. I'm moving to a house with a good backyard. Maybe I should put in a bat box.On the other hand, I think there's a dead-ish tree in the back yard that if it fell would only take out a fence, and http://www.batcon.org/resources/getting-involved/bat-houses says dead trees are even better roosts for them. Maybe I'll stick with benign neglect of my back yard for now.

Also just lightening my kitchen up by giving away some tools I haven't used in a year, making it easier to find the ones I want. I know this doesn't work for everyone but I'm happy about it today.

Well, that explains why I've had to run the space heater pretty much non-stop every time I've been down here this winter.

2017-05-31T01:12:41Z via Identi.ca Web To: CC: Followers, PublicHaving finally seen Rogue 1, I enjoyed reading this analysis of "the larger security culture at play in the Empire" which came out a couple of years ago: https://adam.shostack.org/blog/2015/12/cybersecurity-lessons-from-star-wars-blame-vader-not-the-it-d...
"There is a singular cause for these failures: Darth Vader. His habit of force choking those who have failed him. The culture of terror that he fosters prevents those under his command from learning from their mistakes and ensures that opportunities for learning will be missed; finger-pointing and blame passing will rule the day.

I fully agree on the quote (from the above link) "On reflection, I think computers and art nouveau should go together, like, all the time."
