hi, I haven’t been here since june. anyway, I like to check https://haveibeenpwned.com/ occasionally to see which of my various accounts have been leaked on the dark web or whatever. recently(not so recently) I noticed that my account on ticketfly.com had been breached. not having remembered I had an account with ticketfly, and, not caring as the data was my address, name, phone #, etc, things you can look up and I don’t care, I decided to do nothing about it.

today, however, I felt like I should at least change the password to the account.

I use a password storage program, which I like and syncs across my devices with scripts and dropbox and whatever. I recommend you do the same. these programs can create random passwords for each thingy you have an account with so you don’t even need to know the password. this also allows you to comply with the maximum complexity a web service allows. I like that too.

also, on this ticketly site, they don’t have my current address or phone number on file, so whoever got that data doesn’t have anything cool anyway.

have a good thanksgiving and be thankful for Robert Swan Mueller III.

hello

I am attending two(2) parties today. One(1) is a yard party with food and music. The second(2nd) is a yard party with food(presumably) and music. At both of these parties I expect I shall play music.

Also, at these parties, I expect I shall eat food, if, at the second party, there is food.

Featured below is a picture of food.

thank you for your consideration.

DDOS

I listened to a podcast about DDOS mitigation. It doesn't seem like the kind of thing I need to be too concerned about, at least outside of a work environment. One of the things I thought was interesting was the fact that there are hardware applications you can buy to mitigate the effects of a DDOS attack, but there is no clear cut way to actually use them. I want one.
