Flashed an old nexus 5 with a security rom and got this gem on boot up 😎

Happy Birthday Alan Turing, the computer scientist and pioneer of cryptography exploitation - he was born on this day in 1912. His historic papers and work are synonymous to many in the computing science fields, Turing was persecuted by the British government for being gay and poisoned himself tragically at the age of 41. No other life has helped shape the world we live in today as beautifully and no one should ever forget the fate men like him suffered at the hands of the UK state.

Pinephone v1.0 developer edition, significant hardware changes between this and v1.2 means that my device is unstable. Works great under postmarketOS though, I can’t wait for the v1.3 hardware to come out. It’s not really suitable as a daily driver phone just yet (especially this early dev model!), but Linux mainline on phone is coming. I’ve run all kinds of useful hacking tools on the device with 0 issues, metasploit, nmap, tcpdump, hydra, mitmproxy etc. Ubuntu touch is showing real promise.

Uniden SDS200 is still by far the best radio scanner I have ever used, it can stream through my LAN and supports most common data modes. It even has mobile apps that you can use to mirror & control the radio settings. There is a little bit of a lag in the received audio->LAN->WiFi->mobile path yet the audio quality is excellent. The network analyzer utility is something I have never seen in any other commercial units. It automagically harvests talkgroups via P25 simulcast control freq.

Pinebook Pro is still by far my favorite Linux device, I set it up with Mastodon (telephant) & Matrix (gomuks) in the hopes that I’ll be more productive moving from Twitter and post content more effectively. Both are golang clients, had issues with NodeJS/Electrum on aarch64. I’m really enjoying Manjaro Linux, this definitely feels more comfortable for microblogging.
