Well Christmas isn't around truely yet, but I'm sure Maria felt something by now, those 2000 some odd years ago. I want to wish you a happy solstice today and you may not know this the solstice is for me christmas and new years in one. But I do honor the christian tradition too and we don't open our presents until the 24th (24th is german tradition to open presents on xmas eve).0 comments
Once again the solstice is upon us. For northern people like me, it's the winter-solstice. For southeners like Australians the summer solstice is approaching. This solstice according to wikipedia is on the 22nd of December.0 comments
I finished porting the changes I've made to the openbsd client for natally to Linux. On my parents computer then I'm able to do:
root@neptun:/etc# ping6 ipv6.google.com PING ipv6.google.com(bw-in-x69.1e100.net) 56 data bytes 64 bytes from bw-in-x69.1e100.net: icmp_seq=1 ttl=53 time=81.6 ms 64 bytes from bw-in-x69.1e100.net: icmp_seq=2 ttl=53 time=80.2 ms ^C --- ipv6.google.com ping statistics --- 2 packets transmitted, 2 received, 0% packet loss, time 1000ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 80.248/80.927/81.607/0.736 msAmong google facebook also works over IPv6 (www.v6.facebook.com). I'm very happy that natally works the way I planned for it. In the future though I'M going to make some routing code changes with it... stay tuned for that. 0 comments

I have set it up so that Natally which is run on a Linux VPS tunnels for an
OpenBSD client. Here is a demonstration:
Well I finally was able to put the SSD in mars. Here's a clip from the dmesg as that's all that's changed:
$ dmesg|grep wd0 wd0 at wdc0 channel 0 drive 0:The speed is pretty nice. I can upload to the box at 5MB/s and reading and writing files is somewhere between 15 and 18 MB/s. And the best thing about the G4 Cube is now that it's soooo purring quiet (minus the purring). 0 comments
I'm back hacking on Natally. This time I want to put in routines for NAT for IPv6. Basically I want to give my network a ULA block and then use the IPv6's on my VPS which do a "redirect" back. All this because Hetzner Online doesn't allow extra "true" V6 /64's for VPS customers, we just get 1 which have to be bound on the external interface or we get no routing. So this is where natally comes in. I'm doing this too because I don't know how long the sixxs.net tunnel at my provider will last. I heard they have a pilot project to get native v6 already without tunnels so perhaps one day the tunnelling will cease and I might lose my v6 block. Also VDSL is rolled out but not at my provider so I may want to switch one day. We'll see.0 comments
Mars died with a uncorrectable data error in the harddrive. I made backups from it and I'm going to build what this guy did: SSD in a powermac G4 Cube. It cost 147 euros for the card and the adapter and I hope it'll work out. The positive thing is that I can reuse the SSD if I don't like mars anymore.0 comments
The C primer I wrote (with corrections from other guys) has hit 10,000 views. It's very popular on the Internet it seems. I thank you for the views if you visited it, and I hope you were not dissapointed. My goal is to make newbies able to write input and output of data with the C programming language. I don't know if I succeeded, but I got a thank you for this before.0 comments
I've owned this computer 10 years now. When I bought it it ran OpenBSD 3.0
or so (back when there was still OpenBSD powerpc). In the meantime it
loaded Mac OS X, ran for my parents and then it was mothballed... well I
saved it didn't I.
