I'm finally getting into the habit of carrying a water-bottle with me all the time again. All it took was me finding a replacement cap for my good old #djangoconeurope2015 bottle 😍
ZipSlip: #security marketing strikes again. Can we please go back to numbers? https://boingboing.net/2018/06/06/zip-slip.html#more-603566
Currently blocked by Bruce Schneier's “Secrets and Lies” from #reading anything else. At least I'm way past the half-time-flag, so I should be able to complete it this week and finally be able to read some #scifi again 😄
Don't get me wrong, though. “Secrets and Lies” is quite interesting and despite its age very relevant. It's just realllly long.
#pdx, assault, eviction, 72 hours, emergency
My landlord just tried to evict me, with a 72 hour notice, using his partner (my friend from the ISO) as the witness.
I refused to take the paperwork and backed away, he got loud and and lunged at me, I yelled "no stop" and tried to get back, knocked stuff off a shelf of his as I moved away fast.
I called my lawyer once I was safe.
Please boost, I need a place to stay.

Already done with this month's #swordandlaser assignment "An Unkindness of Ghosts" by Rivers Solomon: https://zerokspot.com/weblog/2018/03/03/an-unkindness-of-ghosts/ 😁
Hi ! We are Terms of Service;Didn't Read (tosdr.org). "I have read and agreed to the Terms of Services" is the Internet's biggest lie. We aim to fix it.
We crowdsource ToS analysis's so everyone can participate in making the Internet more transparent!
We have a new submission tool, currently under development: Phoenix : https://edit.tosdr.org
IRC: #tosdr on Freenode
There is now a HumbleBundle including tons of #AttackOnTitan mangas 😃 Now I just have to find the time to also actually read them 😧 https://www.humblebundle.com/books/attack-on-titan-books
Hm... I still have to write a review of Madeleine L'Engle's "A wrinkle in time", now that I've finished the February assignment for #swordandlaser 😯
Good thing that the Reader Q&A on Goodreads answers the very first question I've had about this month's book for the #sffbookclub: Yes, it sounds like this can be read without knowing the other entries in the series :D
Are you in any kind of #bookclub? For this year I'm trying to read every assignment by SwordAndLaser but it might be too large a club for me.
