Massive news! Exchange 2010 end of support is being extended until October 13, 2020. Good news if you haven't started your migration yet - but don't let that delay you.

Screwing with furries is a really bad idea. Furries wear masks, use pseudonyms, have friends in every city, and most of them think they can transform into a bear.

Twitter is a hotbed of cultural disconnect, people become privy to conversations, they would normally never have access to. But instead of sitting back in the cut and listening, folks feel compelled to inject their two cents.

One reason why I stopped participating in the free software community was because of the way Richard treated me. He used to stare at my chest, call me from random phone numbers (sometimes multiple times a day), and make comments about my looks that made me deeply uncomfortable

This is the kind of client hygiene/network inventory stuff that’s critical but time-consuming. Most security teams don’t have sanity checks on the most basic things like “is the AV actually running, or does the policy just say it’s supposed to run?” Now to write automation...

Ah endpoint hasn’t rebooted in 7 days. That’s older than this policy. I suspect the Security Center service attempt backoff is too long or it lost its notification on those policy registry keys. Fortunately I could do this without rebooting the asset, but it took an hour to fix.

Okay on a hunch I restarted the Security Center service to reinit the AvProductState, appears to have kicked something in the OS to engage and read the policy keys that turn Defender on, instead of the SOFTWARE\Microsoft keys... Not sure why it wasn’t monitoring, it was running.

Trying to administratively enable Windows Defender on this endpoint, except its self-protection appears to have engaged... before it’s been turned on... to keep itself disabled.... puzzles...

Why is the Moon’s shadow on Earth fuzzy while Io’s shadow on Jupiter is so sharp? Io is so big & close that it more than blocks the Sun (it appears 4x as big as the Sun from Jupiter’s perspective) and it’s so close that the penumbra (fuzzy outer edge of shadow) is super thin.

A letter from a federal prisoner, with detailed (but difficult to follow) theories about how the way he was caught must have involved breaking crypto with a quantum computer.
