Security FAQ

I received some questions about cybersecurity and made up a mini-faq to answer them.

What is Phishing?

Phishing is someone posing as a legitimate company/person to gain sensitive information from a user for malicious purposes. (Think of when you fish with fake bait, the fish thinks it’s real so it bites.)

When I join a website what do they do with my personal information?

Every company is different, when on their website, look for their ‘Privacy policy’ and it will indicate exactly what they are doing with your information.

A Security Primer

Physical Security

This includes things like not having papers on desk after you leave work, visible passwords or other confidential information.

Lock your computer when you leave, even for a few minutes, especially if there is someone else in your office . Privacy screens can be helpful for this.

Where We Go From Here X-Files

I started out as a Forester you know. I'm not sure what possessed me to apprentice and follow those fools to the island.

"Emile," I say weakly having just opened my eyes again. I see him rush away from me with his mace held high. He's chanting and it starts to glow.

I see Axton surrounded by short shadowy opponents. If Emile is joining the fray, it's bad. Where the heck is Albion? 

I see a bright blue light streak toward one of the creatures. When it strikes him with a splash, he drops. That wail. Oh crap. This is where Ovrianna should strike.

[2015-11-15] 15mm Modern Spy from Rebel Minis

These are the first 15mm minis I've painted. They are certainly the smallest I have tried to date and I look forward to trying the 10mm Napoleonics I have sometimes

These guys came in a pack titled Modern Havoc from Rebel Minis (which I acquired through Noble Knight Games).

[Torres] Viña Esmeralda in a 750ml Green Bottle @11% from Spain 2013

Almost perfectly clear with a subtle yellow tinge.

Mild but singular grape smell.

A full mouth of sweetness is quickly overwhelmed by a pass of dryness leaving a skunky taste in your mouth.

The skunky-sourness builds with each sip. It may be why everyone drinking looks like they just smelled someone else's fart. Don't be shy, you know that look.

Perhaps this was a rancid bottle. It really gets worse and worse as it breathes. Decanting it makes it worse again.

2015-11-15 [Graphic India] Black Tiger #1 (2015)

Graphic India spins out of Virgin Comics but has a completely different feel without Deepak Chopra's heady influence. This specific hero is created by the driving force behind the India-based comics, Sharad Davarajan. Sharad is a fascinating man who appears driven and accomplished.

He handed the title over to writer Chuck Dixon and artist Graham Nolan.

Fairy Tail First impressions

Since I enjoyed The Seven Deadly Sins so much I thought I'd try watching another anime series. I chose Fairy Tail and watched two episodes of it.

Tracy's HackMoor Campaign 2015/11/10

++++ START OF SESSION ++++

This session was mostly a maintenance session for characters because had leveled up and continued to do so from last week.

Seven Deadly Sins Ending Review

I watched all of the series within the span of 3 days, safe to say I binged on it a bit.

In the end it was a mostly light and fluffy popcorny show, I really enjoyed it.

Spoilers ahead!
