Is there any chance we can move this out of 'Technology & Information" and into a board called "Anoraks"?



^This? This is the most underwhelming keyboard I have ever seen. Its not even backlit. How are you going to find the prt sc button in the dark? Looks like something Hewlett Packard would have bundled with a 486. I'm guessing it doesn't match your black bezeled monitor, your desk, your mouse or anything else.

>he looks at his keyboard when he types

More importantly, it's the best keyboard I've ever used as far as actual typing goes. There are a lot of color options, but I liked this one because it looks like something Hewlett Packard would have bundled with a 486.

Technology & Information / Hella lit keyboards

Just got a new keyboard and it's hella lit. It's the Leopold FC750R PD with Cherry MX silent red switches. I went for the old 1980s beige color. What's your favorite keyboard?

I just had to take the LPI Linux Essentials test for a class. Should I put that on my resume or nah?
IMO it depends on who's looking at your CV. A random HR drone might not know any better and just count whatever exams you've listed. A technically-minded person will be more impressed if you say you can cook.

Yeah, it wasn't that difficult, even for someone with hardly any linux background. Although, since I don't have any paid IT experience, my thinking is that the benefit it would provide on a resume is greater than 0.

I have a friend who has to reinstall his linux distro every year.
Because it sucks balls.

That just sounds like user error. Most web servers and IoT devices run on Linux. I reinstall Windows from time to time, but that's because I have random shit all over the place that I don't want to manually clean up. That's not the fault of the OS.

I'm using Ubuntu with the Plasma desktop environment. Shit's kind of cash.

Ok it's not cash. I realize the GUI is kind of an afterthought in Linux, but this looks like they picked a random person shopping at Walmart to design it.
Imagine installing bloated shitware and then complaining that you're using bloated shitware.

How am I supposed to know that beforehand? Usually people learn by trying things.

Just passed the Net+ but I was shitting my pants for a few hours before the start time. I studied circuit switched networks for hours and didn't see a single question on it.

* fist bump*

I want to take Security Plus but I'm sure I need to be in to network plus before I try it.

Microsoft has virtual server ISOs ( trial copies) for free download. I'm looking at setting one up in virtualbox to practice on.  I'm guessing that Active Directory is all over the network plus test and I hardly ever use it in my real life.

Not sure exactly what’s on the Sec+, but I’m guessing it’s vendor neutral just like Net+. Like Junker said, there’s no AD at all. I’m assuming Sec+ has some Net overlap so I’d probably do that first. Seems kind of useless to know about security operations without first having at least a broad overview of how networks work.

Now forget about 99% of N+ and learn some core routing and switching (Cisco is decent for this, just ignore all their proprietary shit like HSRP and EIGRP). Then move straight to AWS and work on Solutions Architect and Advanced Networking. Learn Python while doing the above so you can automate anything on-prem. Lastly, send me a bottle of top-shelf bourbon when you are raking in $200K+/yr after following the aforementioned advice.

That’s almost exactly what I had planned out except for Cisco. And I didn’t know IT salaries went that high.

Yes but thats not the issue.
Its public fear.  This is why you do terrorism.

Americans, at least, have never really been afraid of terrorism. When 9/11 happened everyone was just pissed off. Never mind that the hijackers came from Saudi Arabia, all the sand people look the same so we may as well go to Afghanistan because it's strategically significant. In hindsight it was obviously a bad idea to go over there, but I can see why they did it. We could have lit up Iran and Pakistan if we wanted, had control of a huge swath of airspace in the Middle East, and had the closest possible base to India.

We were there as an ingress into Russia/China's sphere of influence. We wanted Afghanistan to be an airport and radar station with some weapons testing on the side. China has been pen testing India for a long time now and Afghanistan was supposed to be our counter to that. Do you really think anyone in Washington gives a shit about a bunch of desert nomads, or even about ISIS or the Taliban? It's always been about the greater proxy wars currently engaged by the US/NATO against the commies.

They do when it makes terrorists who then comitt acts of violence in the US/NATO nations.

That's just a secondary concern (and a great excuse to go in) to the big homies at the top. A bomb in a mall here and there isn't going to really threaten national security.
