Donated 50 euros to OpenBSD

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


Vacation cut short

June 24th, 2015

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.


Art display of my parents creations

June 23rd, 2015

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.


Delphinusdns Project sponsors Luke Antins

June 22nd, 2015

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.


Donated 150 euros to the Red Cross

June 22nd, 2015

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 resume.


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!

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.
