The Swarm is a good album

October 24th, 2020

The other day I listened to "The Swarm" by Wu-Tang Clan from 1998. I was taken aback by how good it was. One thing one needs to know about WTC though...they can be majorly depressive to listen to all the time. But I haven't heard much Hip Hop in the last little while anyhow. One particular song that struck me was the one about the holocaust 3rd last on the album. Also do note that we are living in similar times now. Back in 1998 the big word was about African Killer Bees that came from south america into the US via mexico. Today it's the Asian Murder Hornets or something that are detected in Washington state (near Canada). The honey bee I think in north america is an import itself. Back to the album. I'd buy this if I was buying albums these days, maybe in a few years.


Provided fix to bug in OpenBSD's tcpdump

October 24th, 2020

Here is the bug report with fix. I found the bug and wrote a proof of concept to exploit it on thursday night. Today I provided the fix and mailed the public bug report. The bug can only be triggered if you're dumping UDP. It's an infinite loop which I called endless loop in the report.

OpenBSD 6.8 released

October 19th, 2020

From the announce email:

We are pleased to announce the official release of OpenBSD 6.8.
This day marks the OpenBSD project's 25th anniversary.  As we celebrate
our 49th release, we remain proud of OpenBSD's record of more than
twenty years with only two remote holes in the default install.
Cheers! I already upgraded two computers yesterday. Will upgrade more as this week progresses.


The universe has no center?

October 17th, 2020

I believe the universe has a center. Only it is always moving. We don't know what shape the universe has, and we predict that it expands into different directions (perhaps as spikes?). This would move the centroid of the 3D structure as the universe is expanding. But let's not humble ourselves and think that we are in the center. What good would that bring us anyhow?


Why I support low doses of narcotics

October 16th, 2020

In life, you are faced with all sorts of things. Viruses, poisonings, accidental exposure. I personally believe low doses of narcotics should be legal to systematically strengthen the body from a bad reaction. There is a saying that I may not interpret right but it seems to fit in this moment. "What doesn't kill you can only make you stronger". It is a common belief that when exposed to frequent low doses of any substance that the body builds up a resistance and tolerance. I wish I had that beforehand when I had my first joint. Or my first hash/oil cigarette. I believe this is what the netherland are trying to achieve with their legalization. Only that neighbours like Germany can't take the weed in Amsterdam becuase it often leads to an immediate psychosis. I heard that Amsterdamers have banned Germans from entering coffee shops because of this. I personally never went to a coffee shop I didn't see a need, it doesn't consume me that way, (when I was in Amsterdam).


I'm very happy with my .eu domains

October 15th, 2020

I heard some stories that EU wants to re-bid the .eu domain to a new bidder. I'd just like to say I'm very happy with eurid.eu as the registration authority for .EU. Why does this need changing? They are hardcore DNS people, have developed Yadifa and given so much with keeping costs low. Anyone else will have to match that.

Turned on the heat for 2020/2021 Winter Season

September 30th, 2020

It's the last day of September and last year I turned it on around the 7th of October. Even though it is expected to go higher tomorrow and friday (18C), I don't want to take chances and I'm a little cool now (it's 16C). The heating units are electric and they'll take 1-2 days to warm up anyhow. By Sunday the temps are expected to dip to 14C. So the winter season has begun, it's on until easter anyhow.
