Joking around on stockbros with Astrology

Some more free & fed-y training

In my last post , I talked about one of the many websites that provides training in exchange for CEUs. Continuing Education (Units?) are used to renew licenses or certifications, or are just good resume boosters. Oh yeah - and it's free! There are some similar options that I'd like to share with you today as a follow-up! I'm not certain if these are redeemable for CEUs for your  program, but certificates are also available. If the FEMA courses weren't really your vibe, here are some similar counterparts:  Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)  Virtual Learning Portal  has beginner and intermediate classes which take about few hours a piece. some of the topics may be familiar to seasoned practitioners, but introduce concepts a little further than noob level.

There are many certs that can be applied to any industry such as IS-20.21: Diversity Awareness Course 2021 .    So if you’re looking for a quick, free resume boost I highly recommend you check these courses out.

Wardriving Hot-take: WiGLE Audio Features

TL;DR – Use WiGLE’s built-in audio playback to improve your wardriving! Its handy information can be relayed over audio to improve strategies to collect the most networks. Go to WiGLE WiFi – Settings > Speech Configuration Screen then, from the Network List, enable audio by clicking the menu in the upper right and select ‘Play Audio’. When I started to use WiGLE, I noticed an audio feature. Still, I found it cumbersome, so I immediately muted it. I mean, who doesn’t like listening to music while they wardrive?  Let’s get to it- if you’re not using the audio feature in WiGLE, you absolutely must! I imagine this audio feature is beneficial for those who walk and run-on city streets. Maybe it is not popular around the Midwest because most of us are driving or using transportation modes to travel quickly? At least that’s what I thought until I used it to drive around some sparse cities in Indiana. Showing enabled and disabled WiGLE speech settings GPS Status Change: Alerts if G
