As I write this, it's already been new years in Fiji, so the Earth is
rotating in 2017 already. I had a very good year in 2016, and hoping
2017 will be good too. I wish the same for you.

I'm on vacation. I've decided to use most of my vacation days to hack on
delphinusdnsd. If you're interested in progress I'd suppose you could look
at this link. Thanks for well-wishes!

December 1st, 2016
I just watched Edward Snowden on a clip on youtube during dinner and he made
a great speech regarding that presidents can't fix the mass surveilance problem
and that we must fix it (as a world movement). He said we must weigh the
should we and shouldn't we or something, because lately it's been the can or
can't we. This reminded me that the german BND (spy service) has been given
150 million EUR to spy on people's snapchat and other encrypted forms of
communication. We have to work against the powerstructures that want to take
our privacy and route around these.
BTW there is fake news possibly saying that Julian Assange has been kidnapped
by CIA. Fake news can be so annoying because they could turn out to be real.
Julian, I hope you're OK!

At my local supermarket I picked up a batch of blueberries. When I ate them
I noticed a change in vision and a hightened awareness. This made me
curious what I experienced. For one it enacted in my visual senses, so that
must be the occipital lobe area of the brain. Reading online about this
fruit I found that it is classed a "superfood", a nutrition bomb so to speak.
It is high in Vitamin C and K and has manganese. It is good to have when
you have nutritional deficiencies. It sure made a diff for me this afternoon.
Also its latin name of its genus: vaccinium sounds like the english vaccine.
Maybe there is a relation. I'm glad I experimented with this.

Freifunk Franken is a network that is partitioned into what's called hoods.
While the entire network consists of 10.50.0.0/16, my hood has 10.50.60.0/19
or something. I'm in the Hassberge Sued Hood which is centered around
Hassfurt. Each hood represents a Layer 2 (Datalink layer) network, so you
can reach within 1 IP Hop everything inside it. Since geographically my
parents house and my apartment are in the same Hood, I set up an OpenBSD
machine as a bastion host between my internal network and the freifunk franken
network to do IPSEC tunneling in order to have security and integrity between
my parents house and my house. The bastion host I set up at my parents house
looks like this:
It is a PC-ENGINES APU router that does not have forwarding between its
interface, hence there is no way to misroute things.
I've been running this for a few weeks now and have hooked up SIP phones to
this. The phone conversations are clear as ever (38 ms ping). Knowing that
they are encrypted is a big bonus.

My dad thinks this is a real good concept. The Hydrogen Economy. Unfortunately we're not there
yet, but rest be assured our militaries submarines have been using these for
quite a while. Maybe in another lifetime will we civilians make use of this.
