Google should be broken up? No.

November 27th, 2014

I didn't know I'd say this, but, Google should not be broken up like European politicians want it. First look at how Google got started. In California, USA. Land of possibilities and capitalism. Europe on the other hand has less possibilities but is still capitalist. So why is there no european Google? The answer is simply because the economic and juristic landscape in europe don't allow a Google. I've tested this first hand. Network policies of european providers cry out when there is an attempt to make it as a search engine. So I am against the European Union's vote to break up Google. If you don't like Google, give us freedoms and we'll make our own! Don't bite the others hand because they had the freedom to do what you can't! I'm sure other people in europe see this different, but some may agree with me.


Got out the winter jacket

November 26th, 2014

I also turned up the heat to level 3 (highest) and increased the night charger to 5 hours. I expect tomorrow it'll be nice and cozy warm. Today I'm frosting a little (my feet are cold).


Left Zoosk forever, love DS.

November 24th, 2014

Well I left Zoosk. I closed my account. To me it was a waste of time, not sure who else thinks so. I never got to chat to anyone and never made a date. However Zoosk gave me some insights which I've printed out. I'm going to share my results with you.

  1. Women who were interested in me had the average age of 36
  2. I attracted women who are non-smokers
  3. I attracted women who don't have kids more often.
  4. Women who watch action are often attracted to me
  5. I attract women who live within 136 km from me
  6. Most women attracted to me were Saggitarious and Libra
  7. Demographis of women who have shown interest in me
    • Ethnicity: White 78.3%, Mixed/Other 13%, Latino/Hispanic 4.3%, Asian 4.3%
    • Education: Attended College 73.9%, High school graduate 17.4%, No degree 4.3%, College graduate 4.3%
    • Body Type: Average 52.2%, Slim 30.4%, Curvy 8.7%, Athletic 8.7%
    • Children: No 47.8%, Yes - at home 43.5%, Yes - they don't live with me 8.7%
    • Religion: Atheist 22.7%, Christian 22.7%, Catholic 22.7%, Other 18.2%, Muslim 13.6%
    • Smoking: No 56.5%, Yes - regularily 34.8%, Yes - socially 8.7%
  8. Interests of women who expressed interest in me
    • Music - Dance and Electronic was winner.
    • Movies - Action and Drama seemed to be tied for 1st
    • Sports - Boxing and Martial Arts
    • Books - Romance and Religion/Spirituality
    • TV - Drama
    • Games - Arcade
That was statistics for women interested in me. Now I'm not going to go into what I liked the most except I'll give you a clue what women I most interested in were: Depeche Mode, Clueso, Two and a Half Men. I don't think that's true at all, but perhaps it is!

When it comes out I'm probably going to register a .love domain and continue my search for a partner that way, perhaps with help of google? I already pre-ordered the domain I just have to be willing to accept it when it's available and that depends how pricy it will be.


Fixed longstanding bug in Delphinusdnsd

November 21st, 2014

Up to today and in the 0.9.0 release Delphinusdnsd had a bug with time to lives. A domain name with different RRsets would give the lowest RRset's TTL to all of them. So if you had an A with ttl 1800, an MX with ttl 2400 and an NS record with a ttl of 3600 and the A record happened to be the last parsed in the configfile, all RR's would have a TTL of 1800. This is fixed now as I needed that fixed for RRSIG records.


Love coming to an end

November 20th, 2014

In 5 days my 3 months trial of Zoosk.com is running out. Unfortuantely even as a paying member I was not able to conduct any chat with other members. And I didn't find anyone beyond animalistic attraction. So my love search is coming to an end. I've joked to friends that I'm possibly going to register a new .love domain in order to have google find me a partner. But who am I kidding...she's not out there!


Living with Schizophrenia: the medication

November 19th, 2014

This is sorta a second part. As some of you know, I have schizophrenia. I don't feel different though, I feel like I've always felt. I don't hear voices or anything like that at all, but that's because schizophrenia entails a broad spectrum of traits ranging from paranoid to a schizoaffective and even depression. What I can tell you about me is that the doctors in Germany judged me mostly on my speech, which isn't fair because I lived in Canada for 15 years, and I have trouble recalling the right words. Most of the time I'd just like to say everything in english, but then noone would understand me. Sucks I know.

In Canada I was diagnosed with OCD so I started taking Luvox which is Fluvoxamine first. Having gone off it in cold turkey may have led to my greater psychosis. My gateway drug with schizophrenia was Zeldox aka Ziprasidone. It put on quite the pounds on me between 2003 and 2005, even though I was fairly physically active especially since losing my job due to "not performing as wished" in 2005. I got a little paranoid back then and displayed psychosomatic symptoms at work. I also went off this medication as I just couldn't handle my new psychiatrist. When I moved in 2006 or 2007 I went straight into the mental health facility and they subscribed me another medication that gave me a greedy appetite, called zyprexa aka Olanzapine. Then I really put on the fat with this stuff.

My psychiatrist (the original one) then reviewed me and gave me Abilify aka Aripiprazole. The current dosage is 30 mg a day now that I intake. I was watching youtube yesterday and saw someone whine that they had taken 7.5 mg and felt bad/symptoms. Poor them. I don't feel any side effects at even greater dosage.

While I'm positive that these medications can't harm me, I'm looking forward to the day when my doctor says that I don't need them anymore. I do feel that medications that are highly addictive like aripiprazole are a binding medication causing someone to cease being all over the place and settling down to one home, where taking medication binds you to the place you call home. It's more to do with control than healing. That's all I wanted to talk about today.


My thoughts on the recent BND 300 million euro project

November 16th, 2014

The BND wants to crack facebook/TLS encryption. My view is as it has always been, like here. Waste of money, and totally not worth it. Imagine the electricity costs, that it takes to power 300 million euros worth of ASICS. It would be counter-productive of the will of the people here to change our energy transition to renewables.

I'm still peeved that the BND sold us out and gave the NSA our data. See here. I was living in Frankfurt in 2005 and it turned out that the BND forwarded data to the NSA from my provider at the time (freenet.de/pppool.de), sheesh!

Now that I'm reading Glenn Greenwalds book you may see more of this type of blog post. Although I'm not trying to fixate on this too much. I've got projects to do anyhow.


Reading Glenn Greenwald's book

November 16th, 2014

Remember Snowden? The journalist who had first contact with Snowden has written a book. I bought it, it's in german, not sure if you can get this book in english or not. The first 64 pages have been interesting but most of the story I already knew. Interesting was that Laura Poitras who recently released her film "citizenfour" was there since the start as well.

I asked the bookstore owner where I bought the book if Snowden is getting any proceeds from this book, and he was doubtful. Oh well, that's all I wanted to show.


Delphinusdnsd is born

November 14th, 2014

The new tree was imported at the delphinus CVS repo. Delphinus DNS is the replacement name for Wildcarddnsd and from this day forward it will carry on development. I plan on putting in DNSSEC this release cycle, and delphinusdnsd will be released with version RELEASE_1_0 tag right away (as 1.0.0) next year around November 15th. Some commits were already made to this new tree, to wipe the old name away.


Reflections: Nine years of wildcarddnsd

November 13th, 2014

November is the birthmonth for wildcarddnsd. Back in 2005, I was job-less, angry, and living on welfare, when I started to code on wildcarddnsd. It was my escape from an uncertain future, a future that didn't have me hold a job again. Well that turned out to be false. I did get a job 5 years later and things started to go uphill again. But all throughout the time I was unemployed and employed I took pleasure in writing for wildcarddnsd. Thanks W for all that! And thanks to everyone who supported me. Now that wildcarddnsd has been renamed I'm gonna have to say D instead of Double-U. I'm glad you exist D, and I hope to see you flourish into a full-fledged general purpose nameserver. Time will tell!
