@juliewebgirl ThinkPads, no matter how cool...suffer from potato chip greas in horrible ways.

Ye the texture is specifically designed (no kidding, back in the first series, I told you none of us college plebs could even Think of touching one..

The surface os a ThinkPad was originally, by Lore mind you, was to hold drinks on a flight table.

Why the fuck isn't my moni...oh, HDMI isn't plugged in. You know that Bright Blue Obvious cable that goes into the side of a black laptop.

Dunno how I missed that.

@nuthaven I've had machines in my day that expressed themselves as girls, and some that were boys.

I've also had some that went off and did their own thing .... out of 124 identical servers, three were, "headstrong".*

Over the decade, only those machines have trucked through and never failed.

Huh. Fancy that.

*FiberChannel HBAs, the kids dinna' like it.

I'm a fan of Jack Reacher novels ...

Tom Cruise as Jack? He fits in an F14 I guess but he's not as big or mean or brutal as me.

THIS is the Correct Jack Reacher ... guess I gotta buy the next season if it's done.

Between me and @juliewebgirl , I'm the nice one.

Why do major providers want you to use 2FA?

From a security perspective it adds three complications:
1. Complication.
2. User manipulation.
3. User tracking.

I got a VPN, it's mine, mu customer's VPN is also mine. The problem here is *What*?

The problem(s) ARE:
1. You can't get until your shit...
2. You ARE being Monetized.

Complexity is THE ENEMY of security. I used to do audits and I tear 100x more shit out than I add.

Come a corporate perspective ...

Item one I was lagged in reconstituting my comms.

Item two I had to ask a third party (I didn't actually...used MY Talk server, thanks) for access to a service I can do myself (I'll be buying SIP numbers this week and Asterisk will end up on my router).

Item three ... WHEN I NEED IT . I ditched North Face decades ago because their gear failed in a life-threatening situation.

So I lost my phone on the way home last night. I'll buy a new one today or tomorrow or whatever.

Google (Fucking jackass mentally ill hippies) want me to use my phone to get a code to log into my Google Voice.

This IS SPECIFICALLY DEFEATING to the purpose of the task.

This is use-case NUMBER FUCKING ONE. I lost my phone and now I'm fucked. Oh wait, I'm technically adept so I have a cellular enabled tablet with all my accounts and an old laptop.
