            Jaysus I love NYC, so good. I feel I'd be done in Vegas after a day.

              Talking of Vegas, what do we think of an F1 race down the strip from next season.
              My first thought was that such a massive wide boulevard would be epic for racing. But thinking about I'd say they'll only use one side of the road as I can't see them getting rid of the central reservation.
              So it'll probably just be visually stunning but ultimately boring much like Monaco.

                  Austin is a great city to visit, music, food, bats, dancing. Looking forward to getting there again, going to use it as a starting point for a road trip across the border country and back up the coast towards SanFran.

                  Would like to do it next year but probably better to wait until Trumpism is a repressed shameful memory.

                    It's more salient in California because most of the homeless there sleep rough unlike elsewhere.

                      I would say yes, definitely do it if you're interested and have nothing else to take up your time. Note that you will need to do some coding/scripting as part of the course (pen-testing). Dunno if that would put you off though. I believe I saw your LinkedIn at some point and you have done data analytics so I'd say you're well covered for the basic skills.

                      Reading about cyber security stories, theories and breaches can be fascinating but the actual work is much more mundane for the most part. Routine checks and lots of compliance-related stuff. The sexy-sounding stuff around pen-testing and figuring out malware/threats is for the real uber-nerds imo.

                      I've had a colleague who consults now mention several times that plenty of cyber security engineers are transitioning back to other IT roles after a few years due to the on-call and roster nature of the gig. Plus some added stress of late. Purely anecdotal but Mick would be way better positioned to comment.
                      Thanks Colin and Mick. Hmm maybe I'll take a look next week. I maybe down tools for another week. Might need to brush up my IT skills . I'm novicey at best .

                        Its interesting the difference in views on US Cities . I hated LA .

                        I had 2 Zen moments over in the US . One was at 5pm on a Friday in a Greewich village Jazz Bar. Was there alone as i didnt want to go to a funeral home of a dead guy i didnt know. Some huge black guy told me ALL about Duke Ellington. I was never really a knowledgeable fan but this guy was and played track after track on the jukebox. Really enjoyed the few hours and the passionate commentary.

                        The 2nd time was in a small town Comfort outside San An. A through the night camp firside guitar wanker fest with some proper talent. . Loved it . 1st time i heard pamcho and leftie. I retired to bed at sunrise as they started getting thick about politics and the vibe was diluting. Im easily pleased i guess. 2 standouts for me.

                        Sure fire away lads on yer US zen moments .

                                Just reminds me of how NYC was like a sketch, everybody in suits with airpods talking on their phones at all times, everybody shouting at the top of their lungs as their normal conversational level. Crazy shit happening everywhere, nobody even looking at insane people screaming as if they don't exist. Rich women in dog parks that clearly haven't worked a day in their lives. The poverty and wealth in any one glance being absurdly far apart. The news being about a baby being found dead in a dumpster as if a normal occurrence between all the medical and legal ads. It goes on and on.

                                  Any thoughts here on Graham Linehan's recent bit? I know I stopped following him on twitter before he was banned. Just generally think he's let a pretty insignificant issue (to me anyway) take over his life.

                                    Was in a car back seat one time in Queens . Woman runs in front of the car. Gets a BEEP BEEP . The front two seats and the women all shout CUNT at the same time. I laughed for minutes.

                                          But as you said, complience docs and spiceworks/powershell ad stuff is 90% of the day to day once they are done
                                          I remember there was a pen-tester in to break everything possible in a previous gig (standard windows domain and various apps/SLQ & oracle db). A couple of hours and he was basically done. I remember him turning to me. Does your boss want me to write to the production DB or create a new domain admin or change firewall rules?

                                          As you said a lot of the pen-testing stuff is run of the mill script/bundles that work in most settings where companies rarely have best practices implemented. The engineer gave me the link to the course he did - 1 month of study was required to achieve the certification for an instant 2x salary at that time. The test for the cert was a cool concept, 24 hours to break through a fairly standard windows domain with a few vlans and DMZ plus a few ports or surfaces that could be jabbed. The real cool stuff goes on in bigger shops, particularly with high-value targets (think finance, tech etc). Money for the guys in those roles is $$$$ but it reflects the skills.

                                          Solksjaer! - Mick had a very good point about testing the waters. Find out the course modules or subjects and hop onto youtube to get a feel of what they contain. The training sites would have content relevant to your course. That said it would be geared more towards being hands-on/practical to achieve a professional certification vs more theory-based for a 3rd level qualification.

                                            Yeah, it just seems really sad that he's let such a nonsensical issue become an obsession.
                                            There must come a point where you see that having a view is costing you the best 30 years of your earning potential, destroying your marriage, getting you police cautions - and decide to back away as it's surely not a hill worth dying on. But he just wasn't able to do it.

                                              Seems like it was more than just a principled viewpoint. I just Googled there...

                                              The suspension came after Linehan responded to a Women’s Institute post wishing a happy pride to all of their transgender members with: “Men aren’t women tho.”

                                              After creating a new account under the guise of a trans man, Linehan was again suspended.

                                              Then, last year, Linehan created a fake account on the lesbian dating app Her and publicly posted screenshots from the app of users which were non-binary and trans women to his blog, stating that they should not be allowed on the app because they “are not lesbians”.

                                                I see the rouble has recovered nearly all its losses from the start of the war. Financial markets maybe assuming that sanctions will be temporary?

                                                    Would Putin announcing that Russian oil/gas must be paid for in Roubles have anything to do with it? Would expect some uplift after that surely

                                                      Was out for lunch with two likely lads today, who finished up the lunch by noting how they had both independently gone deep into buying uranium futures as soon as the war started.

                                                      And all our time on here delighting in the rouble falling, and none of the time wondering if it was time to buy it.

                                                      We clearly devoted too much space at the beginning of the war thinking about the war, and not enough to thinking about the profit opportunities.

                                                        I guess that should have a decent impact. Although it (was) a $1.4 trillion dollar economy before all this happened, so surely a few billion in eurozone purchases of roubles wouldn't have a massive impact.

                                                        It seems there was a bit of an over-reaction at the beginning.

                                                          The Europeans are paying in the same currency (EUR, USD) they've always paid in and Gazprom Bank are then converting to roubles. Thus enabling the bullshit.

                                                                The Europeans are paying in the same currency (EUR, USD) they've always paid in and Gazprom Bank are then converting to roubles. Thus enabling the bullshit.
                                                                Yeah, I didn't really get that. Surely it can't make any difference either way, as fundamentally the foreign currency is supporting the domestic currency in both circumstances. In one, through buying roubles directly (the current proposal), and in the other through giving foreign currency that can then be used by Russia to spend buying their domestic currency (the standard approach).

Apparently he was known to all the locals as 'The Man From Uncle'

                                                                                                    I'm looking for an app (Android) that will allow me to scan or import receipts into an app and then output a detailed (dates etc) expense report in excel or something like that. Any recommendations?
                                                                                                    I use Dext - it's excellent - and it uploads to most mainstream accounting packages too Ilike XERO) , and takes downloads to excel. if the receipt is hard to OCR it gets transcribed in India very accurately with few corrections to make.

                                                                                                    I imagine somebody saying, Oh look where Paul is now

                                                                                                      Like CC, I blocked him ages ago, as it was too painful to watch.

                                                                                                      It is a minefield about which it seems impossible to have a sane conversation. As far as I can see there are two central controversies one about who can access women only spaces and the other about the level of scrutiny and assessment that is carried out before young people take irreversible chemical and physical interventions towards transitioning.
                                                                                                      I don't have any strong opinions on the former that is a discussion for women and feminism but I guess it can be resolved by physical infrastructure the latter is a complex debate that I know little about but would hope that there is good open honest and science based information available to anyone going down that road.
                                                                                                      I believe that anyone who denies biological reality is a fool and should have any of their opinions taken seriously by anyone. It seems to be an starting position for many who engage in debate and its probably worth figuring out if that where someone is coming from before engaging with them. It feels like JK Rowling is being harshly treated by those elements who are trying to have her cancelled, seems to me that the things she has actually said shouldn't be particularly offensive to anyone and don't seem to merit the vitriol aimed at her. There does seem to be a deep fear in the media of getting involved but that's going to be a problem when the consequences of thought crime are what happened to Linehan.

                                                                                                      Two people I know that have had very different experiences. A super intelligent quiet introverted kid transitioned from female to male about finishing college age some years ago. As soon as I heard it was a case of 'oh yeah that makes sense' but their parents who are of a religious bent didn't see it like that and as far as I know their eldest child has been estranged and struggling with that ever since. Another lad I know mid to late 20's had a difficult time all the way through since early teens and after extensive counselling surprised everyone by announcing that he was going to transition to female and while that happened only a few months ago the the decision has so far been a life changer for the better in that they are happy and content for probably the first time since puberty. It feels like its going to work out great for them.

I know Tom Kerridge won it twice and has multiple Michelin stars but just something about his style I find a little off putting but clearly knows what he is talking about. And the podcaster, well I'm not sure why hes there at all tbh.

I know Tom Kerridge won it twice and has multiple Michelin stars but just something about his style I find a little off putting but clearly knows what he is talking about. And the podcaster, well I'm not sure why hes there at all tbh.

Been going on for about six months now, and has descended into something outrageous. I was just sending him a 'piss off' email there, after he sent something new, and I was thinking that really I haven't paid even the slightest attention to this thing for the entire period of time. Was looking back through some of our past emails there, and they are shocking, and frequent. All manners of people dragged into the conversations, its not some isolated thing, its a big thing. But I've just been completely ignoring it. He will send something awful. I'll spend 5 seconds calling him a dickhead. And then immediately blank it from my life, until the next email arrives a week later. Isn't that a bit mad though? That a little part of my brain is having this raging long-term argument with someone, and it never occurs to me to think about it outside of the split-second it takes me to insult him back. Well, until now. And I see all his emails are long diatribes about me, so he must be surely taking it to heart as his cuntist Austrian upbringing would require him to. meh, just taking a moment of personal pride in my ability to compartmentalise.

If anything it will put him out of kilter plus there is no harm in removing toxicity from your life.
