When you're playing Battlefield 2042 and get put onto the US team so don't have to worry about military spending:

Finally got around to downloading Battlefield 2042. It's pretty fun. Haven't played in years, but I can sort of still remember how to fly.

I definitely need to hire a web designer and video editor, but first I need to figure out how to make content creation consistently profitable.

I love doing content, but like a single podcast episode takes me around 2 days to edit. Pretty taxing on top of having multiple day jobs.

Feels so good to get home after working from a 17 inch laptop in a hotel room for several weeks

To date the best airport experience I’ve ever had was after I was arrested. Got to skip bag drop line, security screening, and was boarded straight onto the plane. Federal Marshall escort right from car to plane.

Someone outside infosec asked me what I do for a living and I spent a good 15 seconds coming up with an explanation that doesn't sound like organized crime

I want an airline to introduce introvert first class flights where as soon as I enter the airport they inject me with morphine and stuff me in a box or something. I don't care about boarding priority or how big my seat is, just don't make me deal with people.

Gotta respect the hustle of the guy who asked if I wanted to pay $100 extra for the Windows 11 version of a laptop immediately after confirming that I could just buy the Windows 10 version and upgrade for free

Me: "lol these companies who hack criminal hackers and blog about it seem pretty dumb" Me (reading my old blog posts): "oh no"

One of my friends just bought a $1m car, meanwhile I'm sat in an Uber because I can't even be bothered to go the the DMV and get a license.

I think being a public figure in infosec might actually be a net negative. Every new professional you meet has already "met" you in their head. Your first interaction usually consists of unwinding a complex internal narrative they've build about who you are and what you do. 1/2

The two most common narratives I see about public figures: a) They don't release enough interesting stuff, therefore don't do real work b) They release too much interesting stuff, therefore they're in it for fame and can't be trusted with sensitive info 2/2
