Pinned toot

While my bio pretty much says it all, I'll expand on it a little bit.

I'm a practicing Catholic, a pilgrim on the journey to sanctification. Some of my favorite parts of the faith include: the saints, Marian devotion, the intellectual tradition of the church, and church history.

I have a beautiful, supportive and loving wife who helps me be a better man every day. I'm constantly amazed at what a blessing my marriage has been.

I have a dog, Aspen, who looks like a potato when she curls up to sleep.

Another one of my main interests is in technology, specifically linux and cybersecurity. One day I hope to work in a SOC or in another security role. Currently I'm studying for the CompTIA A+ exam.

I like playing ctfs in my free time as well, although that's been in short supply lately.

Also things I like: baseball (Yankees), football (Titans), studying languages, Lord of The Rings, playing guitar.

I installed windows on a machine the other day in order to better acquaint myself with it for the A+ as well as for any future job. I have two initial thoughts. The first is that I think it’s borderline criminal that they make you buy a pro license to be able to encrypt your hard drive, the second is that I constantly feel like I’m being watched whenever I use it.

Politics (MLB) 

Really disappointed in MLB for getting involved in politics by moving the All-Star game out of ATL. Especially since it was because of some lies spread by a few partisan people. Baseball is the only sport I really care about and now I feel like I shouldn’t support it or give it my time if they just cave to the mob. I hope the Braves make to the WS just to piss off MLB.

Went to Stations of the Cross last night for Good Friday. I’ve always thought Pilate’s question to Jesus “Quid est veritas?” was such an interesting, profound, and ironic question. It’s really stuck with me over the years.

Kali Linux had the best April Fools joke I saw today with kids.kali.org

I kind of want to watch Godzilla vs. Kong but I haven’t seen any of the other related movies since Peter Jackson’s King Kong which I did like even though it was like 3 hours long.

Ended up having two interviews for two different IT positions in my company. I think they went well, but only time will tell.

Got my first IT interview lined up for next week. It’s a networking/ server admin internship at the company I work for now. Pray for me, I’m really nervous about it already, but I’m glad my resume looked interesting enough to get this far.

Tried to fix my buddy’s iPhone 8 Plus screen. Fixed the screen but now the ear speaker doesn’t work. Whoops lol. Back to eBay for some iPhone parts.

Trying to figure out backups for my laptop running arch. I have time shift and btrfs setup but I’d like a remote backup as well. Open to suggestions.

Posting this from a pinephone running mobian. After hearing about the pinephone compatible gtk spotify client I was excited to try out the pinephone again. I have a slightly slower than normal pinephone since I got a UBports CE, but I'm still very impressed with the amount of progress that's been made. Not quite daily driver ready for me, but at this rate I think I could switch to something by the end of the year.

Shout out to St. Joseph on his solemnity. First for being the earthly father of Jesus. Second for being the reason I can eat meat on a Friday in lent.

I have a growing desire to play a Lord of The Rings tabletop RPG.

I’ve been studying CPUs for the A+ cert which is going to inevitably lead me to googling obscure CPU architectures and their use cases/ histories in the near future. I’m taking suggestions if anyone has a particular favorite architecture they think is interesting.

Politics 

I don't watch Tucker Carlson, but I think the attacks on him from verified military twitter accounts are embarrassing. And the fact that he's being attacked for telling the military to focus on more serious threats instead of uniforms for pregnant women makes it all the more embarrassing. The enemies of the United States are laughing.

As a newcomer to mastodon, I'm curious what led others here? Personally, I'm here because I'm interested to see how decentralization works as a solution to tech giants bias, inability to enforce policy on massive userbases, and just the general negativity that's on the traditional sites.
