Productivity Simplify

🛣️ Another Productivity Journey Recently, I was reading GRIP about how to work better and to improve productivity. It leads to a reflection of my daily workflow in managing personal and work life. I found out that there are too many apps and not clear objectives of how I was using these apps. I think of a way to make things easier to manage instead of using a dozen apps and painful data flow. So, I decided to breakdown the minimal number of apps for my workflow and cut down some apps that I don’t need to use it. Please bare in mind that my work PC is Windows and my personal devices are Ap...

Apple Universal control is the future

What is Apple Universal Control ? When Apple announced Universal Control, I thought it is too good to be true. A single peripheral device control multiple machines without any setup? That’s something peripheral devices manufactures like Logitech are offering with keyboard that can toggle among input devices but not as smoothly as Universal Control can deliver. It’s a pretty sleek feature that can boost your productivity as an add-on functionality that is missing in Sidecar. Here is 3 reasons why it is ideal solution than 3rd party technology like Logitech Flow: No Additional Cost It wo...

2022 Outlook

The motherland is in turmoil and approaching to become a failed-state. Uncertainty is very high in all citizens, the people who can enjoy their lives with whatever they have. This is far worse than pandemic because the fix to this political conflict can’t be methodological. People falls into 4 categories; the ones that trying to maintain the wealth and status, the ones that rival against the junta power, the one t...

My 2020/2021

2020 is a tough year for everyone. For me, there is some months like house arrest alone. A year passed by and we are in 2021 with changes in our daily life style and the way we live, work and enjoy life. People are fighting for this virus outbreak but most people believe in our survival instinct and health system. As for burmese citizens including me, 2021 Feb military coup is another misery added up to already-been messed up sitiation. It’s a sensitve topic to discuss for non-political minded like me, however this is a big upset and unethical approach taken by the junta militray to the pu...

CISSP Mindset

Why CISSP Well, this is the credential for security practioners like us that hard to prove the market that “I kinda of know what I am doing and would like HR personnel to make their job easier”. A bit of morale dellima in taking this exam but I have to say the learning experience and knowlege gain is worth the pain. This is a bit of extension on what I jot down at reddit post. Since I am already in ISC2 circle with SSCP, this is economical since the annual fee is fixed for no matter how many ISC2 credentials you hold. A good alternative can be CISM from ISACA with another 150 bucks more. ...

IOCs in Incident Reponse
