Today is International day of Human Rights

December 10th, 2020

On chat I was joking around about aliens on earth this morning. Yet there is something much more important. Human rights day (UN.org) is today, and is associated with the universal declaration of human rights (of planet earth), this isn't a joke these rights are universal, if you don't know, now you know. Everyone has a right to know them, violations go against humanity universal laws.

Still if you're an alien on planet earth you should also have rights. Even if you are a human that time travels you should be protected by these rights. In my view if you are a time traveller you need to be put into a new clause. In 1948 people did not fathom the Internet or even AI. All AI must adhere to these rights when dealing with humans, this is very important. It's incredible that just recently there was a spat with an engineer of google who was "sacked" regarding some email that mentioned marginalized people. Google should really get an ethics (if that's a word) committee that adheres to human rights.


Pure candle light or with monitor light?

December 8th, 2020

As I sit here I watch the candle burning beside me. I'm writing this post on my computer. A sense of relaxation is about me, outside is nearly twilight it's getting dark. I never really found that monitors and candle light mix, but I've been doing this a few days now and it feels good. It's better than no candle light is what I am thinking.


Grand Conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn

December 8th, 2020

Can be seen on the 21st of december (solstice) shortly after dark in the South West. I saw a University of Exeter clip on youtube regarding this. They will also be live streaming this event on YT in case you have cloud where you are. On this day Jupiter and Saturn will be very closely aligned in a perfect line from stargazers on Earth, Saturn will likely be above Jupiter and it's said that they are so close that it spans 1/5 of the moons disk. Cheers. BTW this is an event that occurs every 20 years or so, since jupiter has an orbit around the sun that takes 11.8 years and saturns orbit takes 29.4 years or so. It is said that such a close encounter between Saturn and Jupiter won't occur for another 60 years.


Solstice exactly 2 weeks away

December 7th, 2020

Solstice is exactly two weeks away. Thought I'd share this.


Lived in my apartment for eight years now

December 6th, 2020

Today is the day I knew I had this apartment, though I didn't move in three months later in 2013. This is likely the last winter in this apartment as I've put myself on a waiting list to move after easter. I'm going to a smaller flat. It was a good time here and I'll cherish every day before I move. It's a good time to move. 8 years is also a record that I've stayed in any flat for so long.


Have you ever....

December 3rd, 2020

Looked up your own name in Arabic? Greetings, my name is Hadzar. In fact my name is Hadzar (Xail) al Habber, if I got the translation right. Hadzar for Stone as in Rock as in Peter; Xail as in horse and al Habber I think should say lover of horses. But it may not be right.

Why Arabic? Dunno, just thought it'd be cute to know. Also in Chinese I'll find my name some day. A decade ago+ I bought a few Langenscheid's (translators), Greek, Latin, Chinese, Arabic and some other language that I can't think of right now. Obviously not everyone has a translator, so use google translate, it's pretty good. Cheers!


Administrivia: Added CAA records to centroid.eu zone

December 3rd, 2020

I have added CAA records (which are supported in delphinusdnsd 1.5.0) to the centroid.eu zone. I'll keep this for 70 days and see if it creates any problems:

centroid.eu.            3268    IN      CAA     0 issue "letsencrypt.org"
centroid.eu.            3268    IN      CAA     0 iodef "mailto:nospam@centroid.eu"
The above is the output of CAA query for centroid.eu.


Remember to donate to OpenBSD

December 1st, 2020

It's almost the end of the year and OpenBSD users and corporate users of OpenBSD software should put in their share. Be kind to donate to the OpenBSD foundation. I have already donated 50 EUR in the beginning of the year and I'm on hard times currently so there is not much more from me. however I saw that one person (I met him at eurobsdcon in maarsen in 2011) donated 25K dollars. That's incredible! You rock! Thanks a lot for keeping OpenBSD alive! Here is my disclaimer: I'm not associated with OpenBSD in any form, I'm just a big fan of the project.


Let them know it's Christmas time

December 1st, 2020

Tonight as we crossed into december we got dumped on with snow. I guess the radio be playing all those jingles and jangles (I personally don't have radio anymore). It's a magic season to have snow. I cherish it very much. I'm gonna see if I can catch a glimpse of the full moon as well. Yesterday it shone bright and clear. I'd like to point people to this nursery rhyme I played yesterday "Au clair de la lune, mon ami Pierrot". This one on youtube was nicely done. I remember a friends mom in my youth sang it, she was originally from Quebec.
