We talk about SHA1 collisions and robots TOOKin’ yer JERB.



Starts at 08m20s.

I was drinking Bulleitt bourbon. Paden was drinking the same Glenlivet. Jthan was drinking Johnny Walker Black.

  • Paden installed LineageOS on his tablet (from vendor-supplied stock)! He talks a bit about the experience.
  • We talk more about the SHA1 collision discovery. (10m48s)
  • Could AI take over the role of a sysadmin? (20m05s)
    • The article Jthan references is here
    • If you haven’t seen robots actually try to walk, it’s hilarious.
  • Dev vs. Prod- are mismatches/compromises in matching okay? (43m50s)
    • MariaDB, in my book, is 99.999% of the time a perfectly acceptable “mismatch” with MySQL, provided you version-match your dev to prod.

Sysbadministration Award

In this segment, we highlight system administration mistakes. Think of them as the IT equivalent of the Darwin Awards. (56m14s)

The RSA “security conference” attendees apparently don’t know the first thing about wireless security.


  • The Wordpress vuln we mention is reported here
  • At 33m31s i say “humans are not sentient”- I meant “machines are not sentient”. Ooops!
  • For a *split*-second, I thought Jthan was talking about this. Nope. He was talking about the actual fish.
