For Patronizers: “DNSSEC Mastery, 2nd Edition”

Hi folks, This book took far longer than I hoped. I blame the Moon. Download your book before the end of March. I need to add some more words here to avoid the preview, so: This is the first tech book I’m distributing directly from BookFunnel. Bookfunnel keeps copies of all the books you’ve downloaded […]

New Book: Domesticate Your Badgers

Patronizer platforms expose the first section of any post to the general public, so I have to babble for a little bit to hide the details from those less worthy than you. (Don’t get me wrong: everyone is worthy, but some are more worthy than others.) I’ve […]

Montague Portal omnibus for Digital Readers

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. […]

First draft of “TLS Mastery” done

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 […]

Prohibition Orc tale for Digital Readers

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” […]
