What was I reading in October 2019?

October was a busy month, what with being on travel for 2 weeks, participating in both the President's Cup and ODU's CyberOPS CTF events, as well as...

The Cubietruck finally kicked all four of its little feet up in the air. Instead of the SSD, it looks like NVRAM corruption (we've had some nasty brown-outs in October). It's back online. I used the repair as an excuse to weed out what I had running on that box.

The third hypervisor is back online, finally. The fix required blowing away the BIOS config and starting a new one (it wasn't accepting new drives). For now, it's running with about 5x the amount of storage that was previously on there.

In any case, this past month's (err... week's?) reading:

- 6 signs you might be a Linux user - #1 applies to all computer geeks. I'm guilty of #2, #3, and #4. If you're guilty of #5, yer a newb. I disagree with #6. A better one is that you've adapted other people's tools to suit your own needs.
