I now understand your avatar name !
pleased to hear the positive outcome, must have been a very worrying period...
strength & courage, wish you both well...
Well with my industry dying I am going back to school. I just enrolled with UC Irvine in their Cybersecurity Program. So in 10 months, I'll be little better then a script kiddie, with a few certs...
To go along with that I needed a new Laptop, and this little guy seemed to fit the bill.
HP Spectre 13T
•13.3" diagonal FHD IPS multitouch (1920 x 1080)
•1 TB Intel® SSD + 32 GB Intel® Optane™ memory
•Full-size island-style backlit keyboard(Poseidon Blue)
•Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX 201 (2x2) and Bluetooth® 5 Combo
•Windows 10 Pro 64
•Intel® Core™ i7-1065G7 (1.3 GHz, up to 3.9 GHz, 8 MB cache, 4 cores)+ Intel® Iris® Plus Graphics+16 GB Memory (onboard)
Today was not a cheap day.... I also have no idea what island style means lol, but the 2020 version reviews exceedingly well.
Definitely get the CISSP. We hire analysts without it, but not engineers or architects.
I miss mine! I had the stainless steel body, that shutter is something immense!!!! When there is no lens on it and you fire it off you can feel the air being displaced by the mirror swing. And that FLOP sound, to think something like that went to the Moon and on most space walks!!!!
I’m doing Comp TIA sec+ and CEH first. Then CISSP I think is the order.
I was a net admin 2 decades ago. The network and security guys fell under my preview as a shared resource within other departments for the past decades or so. So the basics are still knocking around this is just an intense boot camp to get the skills back. Then I’ll figure out where to go next.
Spacewalks? Oh no! Now I really need a Speedmaster!
I'm about to process the first roll. Exposure settings are going to take some getting used to, but no doubt it's the sort of gear you can't blame your failures on.
I've done Windows & Linux administration, some small time Exchange & network admin, even a little CCNA (not certified) but that was also about 20 years ago. Instead of sticking with it, I got an MBA, went the audit/governance/compliance route, and got my CISA. WIth the COVID downtime, I've no excuse not to add CISM or CGEIT to my resume. The company I worked for had security & compliance together under the same director and I advised the security side on a lot of stuff, but I don't think I have the technical chops any more to do a CISSP. Good luck!
Well you could, do check for any light leaks on the mag before shooting something important - especially on the side where you insert the dark plate and on the little window that shows if it's loaded, I covered up the little window with a square duct tape cutout little bit bigger than the window itself from the inside.
Other than keeping the camera part clean it's a tank, I found it easy to guesstimate the exposure with the WLVF at least easier than with the RF Leicas older than M5.
Thanks. I'm happy with the camera and it's done very well. Prior to my purchase, the camera, lens, and film back were in for a service. I accidentally won an ebay auction for another film back that looked like it had been kicked down a tall mountain but it has no light leaks and performs as good as new. Lucky me.
Needed a stove, but was putting it off. Used gas at the bunkhouse on a remote project, and never realized what I was missing.
I have electric right now and it kills the joy of cooking for me.
New to me Gary fisher.
Was bored. Bought funky socks
Finally caved and bought a nice headset. In my personal experience and opinion, the Zulu 3 is more comfortable than the A20 and the customer service at Lightspeed is incredible.
This Gary Fisher is the one that always comes to mind (Carrie Fisher's pup).
This rolled through the door today, from 1999. ️ Ordered a butane insert so it can be a bit more reliable and can then also light cigars and candles.
Ok not exactly today, but still new. Cycling socks and a 2002 tshirt.
The best damn socks on the planet....DARN TOUGH.... guaranteed for life, no questions asked.
