Here's my #introductions post, lost by the account migration:
I'm a Cyber Security Consultant and do pentests for a living. Before that I used to do software, mostly web development. I speak German, English and Russian. Things fascinating me:

> Find something that really interests you and look into it with as much depth as you possibly can.
Android is a special hell. I've spent almost a whole work day on getting a Play Store APK to pass its traffic through Burp. This involved way too many device images, learning several ways of setting up proxies, debugging the Android emulator, upping my VM game, learning dynamic hooking and finally, toggling a jump instruction in the Smali disassembly to bypass a certificate pinning check. Nothing can stop me now. #infosec
Using portioned yeast was a great idea, now there's no trace of alcohol whatsoever (seems like I used too much every time before that). I've used an apple this time for flavoring and somewhat surprisingly, this batch tastes almost like apple juice.

Schwieriger als ich dachte:

Brilliant project that tidies up public domain ebooks.
Gutenberg and Internet Archive are wonderful resources, but the texts are poorly formatted for actual use, especially on ereaders.
This is a volunteer driven initiative to bring these texts up to date with modern standards and make them look as good as possible on the page.
The trains are slow and I can't possibly reach uni in time. For some reason I'm a student again. There's a loudspeaker announcement that there will be a change from the usual route. I've lost my laptop changing trains, accidentally a new phone and end up in the wrong city.
I think of restoring a laptop backup, but get an angry call where the duck I am and that I better show up or kiss my old live good bye.
I go to a fancy hotel and am informed that my clothes won't do. "You have an appointment with Ms. Lee in 10 minutes. You're her property now." I don't think I've heard this right, but go to the changing room and get something fancier to wear. Moments later I meet Ms. Lee, a wealthy widow waiting impatiently for me to arrive. She isn't pleased with my lack of enthusiasm and makes it clear that I'm her plaything now. "Did you know your rags are headed for the incinerator?", she remarks. My face turns bloodless as I realize I've left everything identifying me there and I dash to the room.
The dream turns into something more game-like, with a HUD and a helpful in-game tutorial informing me about my parkour abilities. I find the room to be empty and head for the escalator. Someone starts running for me and I break out my power moves. I can't help but wonder whether this is some KRPG I've ended up in and wake up.
Editing sieve rules in the web UI is kind of bothersome. I've considered implementing an Emacs package for that, then discovered M-x sieve-manage is a thing. That leaves doing auth in a more automated way.
