There is no "right" way, but the way most books/teachers teach, you don't use your thumb, and you pluck with two-to-three fingers. I'm ill-disciplined and use my thumb a lot. A thumb pluck sounds quite different to a finger pluck.

Play without muting. Do you like what you hear? If so, carry on. If not, mute.

comment Java cipher suites
"The one that matters is the *enabled" cipher suites list." - not if your purpose is (for example) to populate a set of GUI checkboxes so that the user can choose which cipher suites to enable.

comment Is there a tool that can test what SSL/TLS cipher suites a particular website offers?
... and it would need some hacking to work with IMAP STARTTLS, FTPS AUTH TLS etc, but it's possible.

Couple of things: you might be running the script in your nmap distro, rather than the one you downloaded. Check by renaming yours. Then check the "portrule" which in some versions checks for commonly used port numbers. Replace with portrule = function() \n return true \n end

comment Why are notes on the harmonica laid out the way they are?
It's the same arrangement for melodeons. Accordions have the same notes on the blow and draw.

comment Put a cup of water inside a piano?
My parents received the same advice from their piano tuner, probably 30 years ago now. It may slightly raise the humidity inside the piano -- although whether by a significant margin, I don't know.
