Editors§

I am very familiar with any editor now from Emacs, to VSCode, from IntelliJ to Vim. But my notable favorite editors are Helix and Kakoune. Visual feedback is more convenient for me that is why I prefer the reverse mode of Helix and Kakoune over Vim or Neovim.

I still use Firefox. I have been a Firefox user for 3 years now ever since COVID-19 happened

The funny thing about calendars is I always look at my phone. I guess it is either the cal command or Thunderbird's Calendar.

Note-taking§

I plan to write something similar that is editor-agnostic and platform-agnostic. But for now, I am using on just plain text markdown. Obsidian looks enticing though.

Code injection or backdoor: A new look at Ivanti’s CVE-2021-44529

This is yet another, “Ron got nerdsniped by a thing and wasted enough time that he needs something to show for it” blog. Which, come to think of it, are pretty much all my blogs. :) Recently, a tweet from Steven Seeley (ϻг_ϻε) caught my eye - an exploit fo…
