I’m also weary of @marcoarment ‘s advice: don’t test drive a Tesla: it will ruin ICE cars for you forever...
I learned today that the Fortitude Valley Tesla showroom has a Model 3 on display. So tempted to check it out...
Does anyone have any recommendations for an ultra-portable compact tripod that can extend to a decent height (1.2m-1.5m/4'-5')?
Have been invited to speak on a panel at a conference today. Can’t tell if I’m nervous or not.

Accessibility Driven Opportunism https://techdistortion.com/articles/accessibility-driven-opportunism/ #techdistortion
New in this version:
* Support for custom emoji (although not animated ones).
* Open GIFs and videos in the browser. This is not pretty, but it will at least let you see them until this can be implemented properly.
* Also opens the web app when trying to make a report, as this is also not yet implemented.
* Fixed a crash when opening non-http(s) links.
* Attempted to fix a crash in the photo browser again.
Some of the migration is now completed, but I still have a ways to go. Hopefully by the end of the weekend it will be done and I can get back to content.

The battle of wits has begun. It ends when you decide and we both drink, and find out who is right... and who is dead.
A big thing of note, to IT and infosec folks approaching OT and ICS folks, is that IT are often seen as ignorant and meddlesome.
I’m often told stories of an IT security guy doing a ping sweep and knocking over sensitive equipment through ignorance and lack of carefulness.
There’s a lot to unpack from anecdotes like this (like why is a networked device “sensitive” to ping sweeps to begin with), but the key takeaway is education and exposure.
For the second point of “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it,” the focus on “breaking” is on functionality. The tool works. It controls the thing.
The issue here is the tool is “broken” in terms of security. The classic Risk Matrix allowing for probability of attack factors in.
There isn’t a developed culture of *security* in ICS that allows for a Threat Model beyond Copper Thieves.
But there *is* a strong developed culture of safety.
Concerning vendors not supporting upgrades (or supporting at great cost), this opens market opportunities to vendors that supply ongoing support (even at a reasonable subscription rate) for security upgrades and upgrades to apps on supported OSes.
Also opens a large market opportunity for aftermarket third party IDS/IPS vendors protecting ICS devices that cannot be upgraded.
