Using uMatrix to replace NoScript

In the most recent episode of Free as in Freedom (ep 0x61) Bradley mentioned having trouble using NoScript with current web sites.

As a long-time fan of NoScript, I understand his frustration. Fortunately, there’s now uMatrix.

LibrePlanet 2018 Experience

LibrePlanet, the Free Software Foundation's annual technology conference, was a great experience in March.

The conference started with a fantastic keynote from Deb Nicholson, "Free software forever."

CactusConKids++

CactusConKids was even better this year. #CactusCon is a two day regional security conference in #Arizona with a couple thousand attendees.

The one day program added an escape room. To participate in the escape room kids had to first complete three stations: lock picking, arduino updates and a simple breadboard build.

Each of the three rooms in the escape challenge had a puzzle matching one of the three pre-requisite skill stations. Each room also had a hack to bypass the challenge. CactusCon is a hacker/security conference after all :).

SeaGL accepted my etckeeper talk

SeaGL accepted one of my talks again this year! This year I'll speak about Joey Hess' excellent etckeeper.

etckeeper makes it easy to keep system configuration files in revision control. In addition to normal revision control, etckeeper includes important features to track file ownership and permissions, work with package managers and track empty directories. etckeeper supports git, mercurial, bazaar and darcs revision control systems.
