Between busted teeth and getting TLS Mastery to copyedit, it’s been a heck of a month. And for more fun, the roof is leaking and I’m eligible to get a covid vaccine. Nevertheless, I’m scheduling our monthly Patronizer video chat. This time it’s in the evening to support those folks on the West Coast of […]
First, the good news. TLS Mastery is off to copyedit. Tech reviews on this book were savage. The reviewers were kind, mind you, and I appreciated their help. But even after spending a year reading RFCs and man pages and tutorials, after grilling TLS software developers on the phone for hours, the reviews made it […]
You need this. Or you don’t. It’s a thing. In case you didn’t read the Sausage post yet: while the tier benefits exclude omnibuses, I’m giving this omnibus to readers. Because I can. I need some extra words here so that the URL doesn’t show up in the public teaser. How many words? About 45. […]
Meteorologists are like sysadmins. They present the worst possible case to their users. Failure to predict a massive blizzard and ice storm with gale force winds is worse than predicting a storm that doesn’t happen. The weather folks say Detroit gets hammered tonight, so I better share this Sausage post before I lose power, Internet, […]
The January meetup went well. People showed up. We talked books and tech for a good hour and then some. The tech did not implode. Some European and Middle Eastern folks stayed up way, way too late to join in.
February I’m scheduling to be more convenient for the folks in Europe. 13 February 2021, 10AM EST, or 1500 UTC.

After ten months of deciphering RFCs, ignoring riots and pandemics, hosing down my missus with bleach every time she returned from the hospital, and studying openssl s_client output, I finally have a complete draft of TLS Mastery. I’m now soliciting tech reviewers. If you can read this post you’re getting this post will get a […]
Hi folks, The bad news is, last year I wrote only about 300K words. It’s a new low for me. I’m blaming US politics and the pandemic. My wife is a nurse practitioner, and while she’s not on the front lines she knows people everywhere. It’s not good. For me to say “Watching my wife […]
Hi folks, With any luck, this post (beyond the preview) should be visible only to folks who have Digital Reader benefits and above. Please let me know if something is sideways. Here’s the first entry in my “publish a story on the 13th of every month to clear out this bloody awful backlog of stuff” […]
(This post should be visible only to the Video Chat and above Patronizers.) Hi folks, My first video chat will be held 16 January 2021, at 7 PM EST (midnight UTC). My informal polling says that people would prefer weekend meetups, and that Saturday is the best day. 7PM my time is 4PM on the […]
I’m double-checking my access controls for the brand new private Patronizer setup. And the best way to do that is to give something away. Some of you might know that I write a column for the FreeBSD Journal. They basically let me do whatever I want, so long as it’s not explicitly scatological and doesn’t […]
