Frog in the garden

In the afternoon Esme spotted a large frog in our garden. We tried to catch it so we could release it near water, which is on the other side of a busy road, but the frog was too fast for us. After a while we couldn't find it back.

I guess it is the Common frog; Rana temporaria.

curl’s TLS fingerprint

There are numerous different ways and variations a client can perform a TLS handshake and still be standards compliant. There is a long list of extensions that can vary in content, the order of the list of extensions, the ciphers to accept, the allowed TLS versions, steps performed, the order and sequence of those steps and more.

When a network client connects to a remote site and makes a TLS handshake with the server, the server can basically add up all those details and make an educated guess exactly which client that connects to it.

Top Gun: Maverick (2022)

After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy's top aviators, Pete Mitchell is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him.

Set 30 years after its predecessor, it follows Maverick's return to the United States Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program (also known as U.S. Navy-Fighter Weapons School - "TOPGUN"), where he must confront his past as he trains a group of younger pilots, among them the son of Maverick's deceased best friend Lieutenant Nick "Goose" Bradshaw, USN.

In the evening Esme, her mother, and I watched Top Gun: Maverick. I liked the movie a lot and give it a solid 9 out of 10.
