Some of my observations have compelled me to make this post. The bottom line is that the American media is failing us on COVID-19 coverage because it can’t get past partisanship.
Things had just started getting out at that point. The first infections in Michigan were reported. And one, only miles away, in East Lansing. A woman who caught it on a cruise ship, according to the news.
This is going to be the strangest question that was ever used to start an article: Have you ever blown your nose after having worked in the shop all day? It’s gross, isn’t it? All that sawdust floating around air-bourne! That tissue just contains the stuff that your nose was able to filter. The rest […]
I had been listening to my co-workers talk about bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies for a while. Being that it’s the preferred payment method of the underground (i.e.darkweb, ransomware and so on) — and it’s my job as incident response manager to understand that sort of thing — I decided to give it a try.

It’s really incredible to revisit this blog and see how much has happened since my last post in 2014. We have had IOT and SCADA pop out as a gigantic attack surface. Things that once seemed like movie plot threats are now common place. We have had the data of essentially every American ever leaked […]
My web server has been under attack since early this month. This is a dedicated server that I have leased for years. It only hosts a couple of sites for me, my family and a few select friends. Nothing of any real importance or sensitivity exists on it. Why this insignificant little server attracted the […]
I have been working on ‘the perfect stout’ for a long time. In fact one of the first batches I ever brewed was a stout. A while back I create “The Stout Experiment” in an effort to try multiple additions in a single batch. Oddly enough the control (without any additions) ended up being the […]
I’m going to brew a big, warming beer for my next batch. Something that will toast your innards with alcohol burn and warm you up. I am thinking either a Scottish wee heavy of Russian imperial stout. The only problem is that these types of beers require extensive aging. a RIS would be barely drinkable […]
I used “Superior” brand Australian Lager yeast for the first time on a black lager. I was able to find very little information on it online so I pretty much threw caution to the wind and used it. I pitched at about 70 degrees and stuck in my lager area at about 50 degrees. After […]
Wow has it been a long time! I was maintaining radio silence during my security clearance background investigation. Now that its all over expect me to post more (honest). For those of you not close to me, I was hired by the DoD (Department of Defense). What does this mean? Well you will never again […]
