Instead of ordering from OpenBSDEurope (sorry) I ordered from lehmanns.de this time. I'm saving money as it's only 39.95 euros there. And I can pay on delivery, and no shipping charges.0 comments
Privately I had been dreaming of an optical computer. Photonics would do what electrons do in conventional computers. I imagine speed at room temperature and minimal energy (electricity) draw.
Now, my dream seems to have seeded in reality. See here.
Here is a good explanation of a NAND gate, notice it's functionally complete meaning you can create all other types of gates with this (AND, OR, XOR, and negated counterparts). Hats off Mr. Ritesh Agarwal for leading development in an optical NAND gate!0 comments
This is the announcement from RIPE. Perhaps it's time to speed up IPv6 deployment.0 comments
I have registered a new domain. It will eventually replace goldflipper.net. It's name is virgostar.net. When I was born virgo was the constellation in the night sky. The virgo star spica was surrounded on both sides by a full moon and uranus, but when I was born I became a pisces. Yesterday when I registered virgostar.net the constellation virgo rose in the east at 10 AM and the constellation pisces had the almost full moon in it. These were just some celestial observances I made with stellarium (with which you can adjust the date).
Also I'm going to be naming my computers after stars when I'm done with the planets, so this is a fitting domain just like solarscale.de domain was fitting with the planets. BTW I currently have control of six domains, probably a bit too many but I like them all.0 comments
The german BKA seeks a trojan programmer. The BKA is the german equivalent of the american FBI. Let me brainstorm for you why this job is a dead end job, with no chance to grow.
And a multitude of ethics come into play. Whose side are you on anyway? I know this job isn't for me judging by the job-ad.0 comments
This BBC article caught my attention. If you take a close look on my website (probably under private) then you may notice steganographic content. I've been doing this for a while now. If you can't see it, that's the point :-).0 comments
Neil Armstrong has died. For many an inspiration!
I'm a firm believer the USA landed on the moon not just once but six times. Unfortunately back then the lunar program was not sustainable and they had to cease going there. Pity still.0 comments
Summer is coming to an end...slowly.

Unfortunately the fire that ran through my building caused my apartment to be unliveable. It will be restored in 4-6 weeks. Since this affects uranus which is off now, I have moved all dns and mail operations over to io.solarscale.de and goldflipper.net. This is the downside of doing email at home I guess, but fires didn't happen for a long time and are in all in all a rare event. I'm just glad I got a bit of time off work to get everything organized again.0 comments
