VimWiki, this looks pretty cool.

As it is very themed with some of my blog posts, I discovered this today, for all of you command line types:

Why don't you write on your blog anymore?

1.  I don't feel like I have much to say.


I do a tremendous amount of writing and blogging on the Snort, ClamAV, and Talos blogs.  So, I get exhausted when I think about things I would want to write for this blog.

2.  When I do think about what I want to write about, I want to rant against companies and competitors.

But why would I want to give any competitors an intel on what they are doing wrong, or in some cases right?

3.  Twitter is 140 characters of BS, and I can't even think of 140 characters to spew on there half the time.

I know a bunch of people that just post random thoughts and spew for 100s of tweets a night about something, and they have thousands of followers.  I just don't feel like that's me, or it gets me anywhere.
4. Gov't or politics
I know a bunch about the subject, and I just don't feel like talking about it, since that's all the news is saying right now.  
Basically, no one cares!

And now I am tired.

You can't have it both ways

Too long for Twitter. 
Law enforcement agencies are constantly complimenting Apple for the company's addition of "activation lock", citing that it reduces the amount of violent robberies, since the criminals know that they are not able to steal someone's iPhone and then resell it.

But now, those same agencies want Apple to essentially allow law-enforcement agencies to bypass that, what is close to the same feature. 
While yes, the lock screen passcode is different from the activation lock on an iPhone, the request is essentially the same, please allow us the functionality to guess or bypass the password.
I can understand the argument on both sides of this issue, but, I also believe that there are places, such as the human brain, which is protected by the fifth amendment, that the government should not be allowed to go.
