Just found this Internet history gem on an internal Red Hat thread. I think I'm going to end up linking tons of people to it in the future (I'm looking at you, drive by shitty-question IRC people).

Had an interesting conversation at #CarolinaCon last night about regexs and whether or not they are Turing Complete. Turns out that I was right, and they aren't. I'm surprised how frequently I end up being thankful for having taken LOG535 (Advanced Logic, for my logic minor). That's also the class that had its final in a bar, lol.

The top two SO answers behind the link are both very interesting. If you're feeling adventitious, I recommend the "Turing completeness and regular expressions" link in the second answer.

I used to have an alias that used curl to grab some page like whatsmyip.com, grepped through the output and then showed me my external IP. It was pretty long and complex, and it broke when dramatic changes happened to the site I used.

Just learned that `curl ifconfig.me` does the same thing, perfectly. Mind blown.

I feel like I have to think about time zones more while working on #OpenDaylight than I did while living abroad. That's a good sign I guess - large, world-wide community.

"In [1]: import this

Beautiful is better than ugly.
**Explicit is better than implicit.**

The devs who did matplotlib.pyplot.subplot didn't internalize that last bit. Your syntax is bad, and you should feel bad!

While searching for a Jenkins plugin, I found a hilarious one.

"Displays a picture of Bruce Schneier (instead of Jenkins the butler) and a random Bruce Schneier fact on each build page."

I've been using a production #OpenStack deployment at +Red Hat for a few weeks now, and I'm increasingly blow away by how amazing it is. It took me about a minute to spin up a very powerful VM instance, apply the relevant security groups and assign it a publicly routable IP. Having access to such a system dramatically changes my dev process for the better. Highly recommended.

#CarolinaCon , a #Raleigh -based #InfoSec  conference, is this weekend. I've been going for ~5 years and I can't recommend it highly enough. Tons of interesting talks, wild and fascinating people, and generally a blast to be had by all.

> Different one!

That's amazing, lol.

> I'm chained to my desktop until I/O :)

Awesome, stoked to see the announcement blasts :)

> It's awesome to see that Carolina Con is still going though.

Yeah, it's going quite strong. "Keep CarolinaCon strange" (mimicking "keep Portland strange")  might should be a thing? ;)

> I wish I were going this year. DEFCON CTF quals is this weekend.

Ahh noo! Going to miss you man! Best of luck, and that's a great reason to miss it, but yeah it's sad to loose my lunch+CTF+drinking buddy. :)

Perfect example of why the NSA's black hat approach makes the world less safe, not safer. They should invest in defense, not attacks. The exploits they research with our tax dollars eventually come to light and cause substantial real world damage.
The NSA knew about and exploited the Heartbleed vulnerability for two years before it was publicly exposed this week, and used it to steal account passwords and other data, according to a news report.
