Happy Solstice!

June 21st, 2015

Solstice was great, but we had full cloud cover and it spit a little from above too. Anyhow tomorrow I'm going to be back programming on DNSSEC for Delphinusdnsd and i'm really looking forward to it. Cheers!


The First Ever DNSSEC answer from Delphinusdnsd

I'm still in the process of ironing out bugs and adding functionality...stay tuned!


Delphinusdnsd Hack days, entering production..

June 18th, 2015

This is a status update of how my progress on putting DNSSEC into delphinusdnsd is going. I haven't started on the DNSSEC part yet but I have partitioned/fragmented the database structure on delphinusdnsd with the underlying BerkeleyDB. I then had to iron out a few bugs also caused by taking out code. I was able to put delphinusdnsd into production today but I'm monitoring it carefully. At any time I can switch back the old stable wildcarddnsd that was running on io.solarscale.de until today. Next steps are to look at how my zone signer tool is working, it'll likely take me a bit since it's written in ruby. You won't see this tool until later it's not in the CVS tree yet. For those curious in watching what is being changed can see so at the delphinusdnsd viewvc.


I'm on Vacation

June 13th, 2015

Finally! Now the Delphinus DNS is gonna get dusted off and I'll be planning how I'm gonna do this in the next few days. I have 3 weeks to get something working. Also the summer solstice will be around in a week or so. Be prepared for that! It's when the sun is at its highest in the northern hemisphere and at its lowest in the southern hemisphere. It is also the official start of summer in the northern hemisphere until the september equinox.


Purchased two Books

June 6th, 2015

I haven't purchased a book in at least three months. It's time to get something fresh. I got: Postfix: The Definitive Guide (Classique Us), Kyle Dent... and Hacking Exposed Wireless: Wireless Security Secrets and Solutions, Joshua Wright and Johnny Cache. These will give me something to read during the holidays and perhaps inspire me.


Vacation in a week

June 5th, 2015

I go on vacation in a week. I'm really excited. I hope I'm going to get a lot of programming done then, as I have 3 weeks vacation.


Purchased another Album

June 4th, 2015

This one is from Richie Spice "Book of Job". I'm going to listen to it now.


Computers are better Rappers? Perhaps...

May 22th, 2015

I grew up on hip hop and rap in my teenager years. I had a language burden to overcome and it wasn't easy, but I think I got the point. Now then researcher in Finland have developed a rapping algorithm called deep beat (german link). And this may be good and all and I'm sure the algorithm will be used to produce Hip Pop, but what the mainstream media never knew was that it wasn't the glorious rappers that interested us. We wanted to hear the message, and the perfection of a human to deliver this on to us. Now you can write a rhyme and practice it but how well are you gonna be in freestyling. That's where people get mad respect. Sure they recycle parts they practiced before probably but rapping from the head top isn't an easy thing. In my experience hip hop was the experience itself and that can't be told, you have to experience that yourself. I look up to the god and my friends who gave me a message that was, what's the word, benevolent. If you want to understand I invite you to watch 40 years of Hip Hop by KRS-One. I can't guarantee you'll understand it but he tries to teach you. My personal take on hip hop is that to repeat what I experienced in the 1990's you'd have to time travel, it cannot be repeated. Some qualities and friendships remain from that time because we know what we went through in those days. I am gonna stop, there is no words to this...


Advocacy for OpenBSD

May 21st, 2015

On the OpenBSD Journal there was an article that featured this article to show among others that OpenBSD is and I quote "an important ingredient in an EU strategy for more security and technological independence".

When I came to the EU, I had OpenBSD 3.1 in my pocket with me and I used this almost at any opportunity. I have been lucky. I grew up with this stuff in Canada since age 19 and OpenBSD releases since 2.5. Right now I don't have a consumer router but rather an enterprise router made by Soekris running OpenBSD. I plan on getting a PC-Engines APU router to run OpenBSD on it soon. Both these routers allow me this security and technological independence, talked about in the above article. The consumer routers over and over again prove to be unreliable and faulty security wise.


Pre-Ordered Ten of Hearts

May 21st, 2015

I have pre-ordered Alaine's Ten of Hearts album, which is scheduled to be released in 5 days or so. I have Alaine's Without You album and I like how she sounds.
