For no obvious reason I started re-learning x86 assembly, specifically familiarizing myself with x86_64. The 90s are a long time ago and the only asm I did in the last few years was for Arm, so my skills aren't exactly fresh. This is probably not gonna last long but it's been fun so far.

I'm doing a lot of practice with threat modeling, and being diligent about it. Thinking like an attacker is really tricky to do.

It's attracted to me because the official says it's the Zero-ops Kubernetes for developers, edge and IoT!

This week I learned about the svg viewBox property. I've been working on a d3 chart and need it to be responsive, it looks like viewBox may be just what I need.
