The longer I observe the International news in regards to views from other
countries with their relationship to Germany, I just want to make it clear.
I'm not your subordinate. Other countries waged war versus Germany 70 years
ago and we lost. However we're not born to be subordinates generations after
the war, so treat us as sovereigns. If you do not you lose a friend. And
friends is what everyone needs in these times. I sense that it makes Russians
furious that Germans are able to share their opinions on the world wide web or
even the Internet. I sense that Americans feel they have to protect a secret
when it comes to exchanging valid information. I'm not your little friend and
I'm not your big enemy. I am sovereign and seek freedom with something else.
I'm annoyed that Mr. Gorbatchov is blaming Germany for the problems his country
has with Ukraine. But my stance is, let the Ukrainians decide their own fate.
All the power-struggles of Russia are immature and pertrude insecurity world
wide. Get real!

I have ordered a book titled "The Art of Memory Forensics: Detecting Malware and Threats in Windows, Linux, and Mac Memory". This is something that interests
me and that I'm a total newbie in. With this purchase was a recommendation to
buy 3 books so I got the Red Team Field Manual along with Practical Reverse
Engineering. I wonder if it was a good decision. Since my budget for this
year is only 6-8 books I'm only going to count this as 2 books instead of 3.

You know I own a Raspberry Pi. Well in December of 2014 I bought an Adafruit
TFT with touchscreen (only with a pen) that is 2.7". Here is the costs
Raspberry Pi - 70 euros with SD card and Powersupply.
Adafruit TFT display and Case - 50 euros.
Shipping and Customs from NYC, USA - ~30 euros.
I installed xdm and modified it to run calculator (xcalc) over the entire
screen. It has a screensaver too. This is what it looks like:
I put an OpenBSD sticker on it but only to cover the holes for the buttons
which I need to buy the buttons for but not likely since customs costs so
much. This rpi is running raspbian OS. One day I'm going to overhaul this
calculator but for now it's working nicely.

I have written a bank transfer to OpenBSD for 50 euros, labelled it
"1st quarter", so it may be that OpenBSD is getting similar amounts
three more times this year. Told you it'd be less than last year.

It's New Years eve here in .de, but on the globe the date is already
January 1st (in .au for example). May 2015 be a prosperous year for you and
me. Signing off for 2014, yours Peter J. Philipp.

On August 12th, 2014 I removed moon.virgostar.net from the nameservers. Since
then I had been running off only two nameservers. Both were spread far apart
in Panama and Germany. Since today I have added a third nameservers again,
this time it's called supercluster.virgostar.net. While doing so I noticed
(thanks to DENIC) that my delphinusdnsd and its predecessor wildcarddnsd
version 0.9.0 mismatched/flipped the refresh and retry values in the SOA of a
zone. I fixed that and put it back in production. Supercluster is running
nsd in a slave mode. Earlier before doing the DNS change I upgraded
supercluster to OpenBSD 5.6 and applied all known patches. It's been a busy
morning and I'm fairly tired. So looking at the winter flowers will get me
going again, I hope.

Tonight is Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas! It looks like it'll be a green
christmas here in Germany, as long as it doesn't rain, it'll be alright.

Remember the Venus Glider? One of my ideas? Search for it in this blog.
Anyhow NASA wants to go to Venus with a manned mission and study the atmosphere
at 50 km high. Life is bareable there we predict. Only they want to do it
with a blimp instead of a glider.
The above picture is from my office (it's a poster) showing venus on the left
and earth on the right. This is all the media I can give you. Let your
imagination do the rest. Also for a small hint..trees breathe carbon dioxide
which Venus has plenty. A floating base on Venus could perhaps have a few
trees for rare treats. Venusian cherries anyone?

I think the people around Pegida are wrong. However, one had a valid
demand. He said to get rid of the GEZ which is tax that everyone
has to pay on top of taxes, to finance the state run media (mainly ARD, ZDF,
DW and such medias). I too would like this tax gone. It's too likely that
state run media is used for propaganda. Especially in these times.
Another person said that there is no money for public installations
but money for asylum seekers (refugees). To that person I
would say, "Look in your heart, do you really want someone to continue to
live the misery that they do? When all you have to do is tolerate them as
neighbours. It would make a big difference to all."
Another said "everywhere where there is war, germany is involved, this has to
stop". Sorry, you can't stick your head in the sand and ignore
the grim picture of the world around us. We have to act against aggressors
despite how ever twisted war is. We've had 70 years of peace after making a
real mess of the world 70 years ago. Why should we not help those that need
help? And let's be frank, 70 years of peace has created people who are
"products of the environment" which is hazardous in some cases.
So I agree with one, disagree with two others. Pegida doesn't care for anyone
but their own self-served interests. I liken them to the minutemen in the
