Another Friday tool drop from me: https://git.sr.ht/~fincham/sockkit
SockKit is a Python module that makes it easy to make any weird IO in to a SOCKS proxy. Just implement connect(), recv() and send()!
Yes this is part of something bigger coming soon…
Kudos again to my employer Pulse Security (https://pulsesecurity.co.nz/) for facilitating this work.
Ursula K Le Guin, on tech workers:
"Real power goes to waste. Every wizard uses his art against the others, serving the men of greed. What good can any art be used that way? It's wasted. It goes wrong, or it's thrown away. Like slaves' lives. Nobody can be free alone. Not even a mage. All of them working their magic in prison cells, to gain nothing. There's no way to use power for good."
- "The Finder", from "Tales from Earthsea"
As promised, here's another Friday tool drop. This time it's a Docker build environment to turn popular Python hacker tools (like impacket) in to AppImage bundles so they can be run anywhere. Grab it from https://git.sr.ht/~fincham/tool-bundles.

Just finished porting the remaining modules of my wiki to assembly, removed the old C codebase.
@aurynn generally it’s only a matter of time once the file comes out :P often you can get brand name high quality tips that fit a wide range of irons tho which is nice
@aurynn generally here’s the process to follow: clean the iron tip on some damp paper or sponge, tin the tip with a tiny bit of solder, hold the tip against the joint until the joint is hot enough, use the joint itself to melt the solder, withdraw the solder then the iron. The critical part is having the joint melt the solder not the iron.
@aurynn one thing to check: connect the Rx and Tx pins of the serial adapter together and then mash some keys, and make sure you see the serial signals looping back (eg it should output what you type while the pins are connected together)
And I will go, I don’t know where, forever.
