I made my thumbprint today on the scanner, it turned out pretty. Here it is. I cut it up with gimp a little changing the resolution only.

New VPS at Hub.org

November 22nd, 2009

I started turning my home computer (uranus) off at nights since the fans are pretty loud and it's right beside my bed. This meant that for the centroid.eu zone there was a single point of failure since centroid.eu has 2 nameservers one of them being uranus.

So then I looked for a cheap VPS one that also allows me to do the TTLPATCH testing on wildcarddnsd and I've found one at hub.org. The server which I call dione is located in Panama of all places, which is far enough for a good TTL balancing.


Windows 7 and IPv6

November 15th, 2009

I had some time tonight to get IPv6 in windows working, and it does work like a charm. See picture for the config (in german).

The IPv6 addresses are statically set and are behind a firewall. I can see the dancing KAME turtle with IE8.


5 Euros donated to Wikipedia

November 13th, 2009

I use wikipedia quite often. Especially when it gets a little boring. I hope the five euros will cover my bandwidth charges, and it just wouldn't be the same with flashing banners greeting me everytime I go there.

Configuring a Dovecot POP3 server

November 12th, 2009

Here is the config file:

protocols = pop3 pop3s
protocol pop3 {
        listen =
        ssl_listen =
auth default {
        mechanisms = plain 
        passdb pam {
                args = *
        userdb passwd {

ssl = yes
ssl_cert_file = /etc/ssl/certs/dovecot.pem
ssl_key_file = /etc/ssl/private/dovecot.pem
mail_location = mbox:~/mail:INBOX=/var/mail/%u
disable_plaintext_auth = yes
I had to install the pam-devel stuff for opensuse and add a certificate file that can be generated by a script in dovecots build_directory/doc.
