We had a power outtage this morning and a transformer exploded
causing a 40 minute outtage to many parts of Schweinfurt. All my computers
have reset but thankfully none were damaged. I had one router with a 4000 hour
uptime or so, it has now reset. So I'm not gonna learn from this because I
already made plans to buy a bunch of UPS's in late August. It'll be three in
total one for my setup in my living room, one for the hallway and one for my
home office. Hoping the electricity grid will hold until then.

There is a fundraiser going on to bail out Greece. I first read about this here.
So I have added 20 euros to this fund. If everyone in the EU donates 20 euros
then we'd have bailed them out over 5 times the amount. Or if every family of
five spends 20 euros we'll have hit the mark. Good luck Greece!

According to this article at telepolis the nuclear power plant at
Grafenrheinfeld which is about 8 km's from here has shut down, forever, last night. I'm very happy about this. Here is a picture of this plant:
The linked article tells that there is 8 nuclear powerplants left in Germany.
I hope they shut soon as well.

Well a lot was done but a lot of work remains.
- NSEC and NSEC3 need to be added to NOERROR and NXDOMAIN replies
- SOA replies need NSEC* I think.
- PTR replies and CNAME still need RRSIG addons
- Any replies and AXFR still need to be including the new RR's
- The ruby conversion tool needs to be finished, right now I'm converting
BIND style zones by hand
And then I need to go through the checklists and debug. I think I'll do that
in October when I perhaps will get another holiday for a week (to make up for
my cancelled vacation). I figure there is about 2-3 more weeks of work left
to do (at about 1-2 hours a day).

I have added NSEC, and DS RR's to delphinusdnsd in the last 24 hours. I
believe with a bit of converting effort a signed DNSSEC zone being served
would be possible. But I don't want to stop there yet. I still want to
do NSEC3 and NSEC3PARAM (RFC 5155). And a frontend to a zonesigning tool
written in Ruby will be on the menu too, not sure when I have time for that
though. You can check out the CVS repo at
emea.centroid.eu if this interests you at all.

I just wrote a 50 euro donation to Theo de Raadt. I'll be bringing the
transfer to the bank tomorrow.

Unfortunate events at work have cut my vacation short. I'm back working.
What does this mean for delphinusdnsd? I don't know I can't finish it on
my vacation now. I'll see if I can get some time off in september or so.

My mother and my dad are showing off their work, at the Kunsthalle Schweinfurt
starting on the 26th of June until the 12th of July. My mom is a potter and
my dad is a photographer, both their work will be on display.
If you're around the Schweinfurt area and appreciate good art, perhaps this
will interest you. This may be my parents last display together, so this is
a unique view of their display suitably called "signatures of time -
double play". I'll likely visit this art exhibit on friday when I'm in the
area of the art gallery. I won't be at the opening unfortunately.

I have sponsored Luke Antins to add on some resource records on his
Ruby dns-zone gem. I'll
need this gem to do a conversion tool between BIND and DelphinusDNS
zonefiles, and especially do background conversion between signed zones.
Luke accepted to the work and it's expected to be done by the
time I get around to starting the ruby conversion tool, some time next
week. Luke has a website at float64.uk.
I'm absolutely thrilled about this and I'm so glad that we're able to do
this on an open source basis.

The city that I live in (Schweinfurt) is getting a refugee centre which is
in a part of the old Ledward Baracks, where the US Army used to be in. They
are opening the centre in July I believe. It serves as a 1st contact site
for refugees who are expected to stay in the city for up to 3 months. The
Red Cross is overlooking clothing the refugees who aren't expected to have
much clothing with them, so I have donated 150 euros and my family added
50 euros more making a total of 200 euros donation. The website of the
local red cross is here.
BTW yes this is the same Red Cross that I worked for a year as told on my
