Spampd and taking the -T out

August 9th, 2015

I must have wasted 2 hours trying to get spampd to work on a FreeBSD jail with most recent ports. This was the error message:

Aug 09 11:15:51 testmail spampd[86796]: 2015/08/09-11:15:51 Insecure dependency 
in open while running with -T switch at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/Net/ \
Server/Daemonize.pm line 75.    at line 179 in file /usr/local/lib/perl5/ \
I tried everything, permissions, and ownership changes and all would work. So finally I figured out that -T belongs to perl and not spampd or spamassassin. when taking it out in /usr/local/sbin/spampd in the first line it worked. I don't know enough of the implications of this but I'm sick of wasting a sunday afternoon on a stupid -T. It stays off.
root@testmail:/usr/local/etc/rc.d # perl --version

This is perl 5, version 20, subversion 2 (v5.20.2) built for amd64-freebsd-thread-multi

Ordered a Book from Amazon

August 9th, 2015

I bought Design and Implementation of the FreeBSD Operating System, by McKusick et al. Second edition! Having looked through this book I can tell it'll be insightful. I bought the Design and Implementation of the 4.4BSD Operating System from the same author around 1996. I had struggled with it, it's not an easy read and they recommend a Tanenbaum for newbies first. Which I did, (buy a Tanenbaum) and it was worth it. Now only I hope there is some similarities left between FreeBSD and OpenBSD like mbuf's. :-). Can't port something without understanding both systems anyhow. So.. that only leaves someone to write Design and Implementation of the OpenBSD System, hint hint. Anyhow I think this McKusick book will be great.


.. and a Riddim

August 8th, 2015

There is only four songs on the Cloud Nine Riddim. But it's sweet. Too bad they couldn't pack-in an instrumental to this.


Bought Reggae

August 6th, 2015

I have purchased Romain Virgo's album "The System", it's an older album but I used to watch his videos on youtube.


CryptoBooks virtualized

August 2nd, 2015

In order to make use of cryptobook in more parts of my family I have virtualized it. That sorta defeats the point but buying a cryptobook does tend to get expensive. Here is a vmware version of cryptobook:

And here is a virtualbox version of cryptobook:

These aren't for sale unfortunately.


Delphinusdnsd status update

July 28th, 2015

Well the hot days are over I believe. So I'm itching to get back to this. Perhaps next week I'll be able to write some code as this week is filled in my schedule.


Opinion: Hacking Team are pigs

July 27th, 2015

I recently read something that hacking team said they are "victims". Yet they are the ones that sold malware to governments far and wide to infiltrate computers at border points or via the Internet. These guys are low of the low. A good hacker in my mind is a defensive one, not an aggressive offensive one. So these guys are far from good.

This brings up another point. Germany's defence minister is playing with the thought of installing an offensive cyber capability in the german military. What a mistake! Again, work up your defenses not offenses. As the only victims in an offensive military are civilians and we are the ones who really need help.

New Network Plans

July 24th, 2015

I wrote this on a pad today. (Yes it's the pads given out at EuroBSDCon 2011). I'm testing something with beta.swshell.de, something that may make me some money. So temporarily that's how it'll look.


Purchased the Kingston Jamaica Riddim

July 24th, 2015

I liked this riddim when I heard Demarco sing to it. So I purchased it. It's nice.
