Around here, there was sabotage in corn fields around 2018. This is summed up here (german) by mainpost.de. Although they were able to get DNA data and matches, this is not a preventative from damage and someone possibly getting hurt during harvest.
So I was wondering. Would one of those consumer drones (DJI or otherwise) be able to be used to scan the field with a metal detector? Has someone done anything similar? I guess someone could program a path based on GPS for the drone to fly over the field, and someoen else gets GPS data and metal detector signal which gets digitized (on the drone either by a soundcard sampler or otherwise). I guess these sweeps for metal can be done at night too, just before a harvest. Software needs to be written for this, the idea is out there.
We're expecting temperatures upwards of 38C in .de. This is a lot. Currently at the Eselshoehe Wetterstation in Schweinfurt it is 16.6C so still relatively cool. But it is also 8:17AM.0 comments
For the prototype fund (9th round) I have finalized what my project is going to be about.
It will be improvements for delphinusdnsd like I mentioned before, but I have a concrete picture of what I must do. I'm going to make delphinusdnsd an authoritative nameserver for replacing Microsoft DNS server. For that I need to do a few things: GSS-TSIG (RFC 3645), it comes with several depended RFC's that I also have to implement like TKEY (RFC 2930) and possibly KEY RR which comes with the SIG(0) RFC. Also I'm going to implement DNS Updates after RFC 2136 and RFC 3007 (secured), and if there is time left in the project time (6 months) I'll try to implement auto-signing updated records (DNSSEC).
This is all a big task, and there is always the hindthought that Microsoft Active Directory won't allow this. I have found a document from Bluecat Networks that they can do this (on a BIND9 basis). So this will be my outline that I will be working/striving towards. Wish me luck, I'm applying tomorrow, most likely.0 comments
The day had to come, I'm thinking. If you were browsing my CVS repo on my site I have replaced it with a GOT repo. I will reinstitute most software on GOT when I can. CVSweb didn't do it for me anymore when it stopped displaying commits to a branch. I will continue using the CVS without a web interface until the delphinusdnsd 1.5.0 release at which point I'll likely switch completely to got/git. Sorry for any inconvenience if you were going through my repo, just at this time when I removed it.0 comments
I have enabled dmarc default policy (none) on this zone centroid.eu.
;; ANSWER SECTION: _dmarc.centroid.eu. 3600 IN TXT "v=DMARC1; p=none;"The TTL is still lower than I'd like but I'm gonna watch this for a while and then raise it. Basically what happened is that remote mail sites would look this up with dnssec enabled and get an NXDOMAIN with proof-of-nonexistence which is 850 odd bytes, this default reply is only about 66 bytes and I'll be happier posting to mailing lists, I think.
Here is a sample NXDOMAIN summary to show you it is a lot of bytes:
;; Query time: 0 msec ;; SERVER: 127.0.0.1#53(127.0.0.1) ;; WHEN: Sun Jul 26 07:53:40 CEST 2020 ;; MSG SIZE rcvd: 850Here's hoping I didn't make a calculated mistake. 0 comments
When I applied to round five of the prototypefund I was in good spirits. Then I was turned down in November 2018, it sorta pissed me off. But I'm going to re-apply again this August for the ninth round. I'm gonna try to get funding for this and help me get DNS Updates into delphinusdnsd, and best of all get paid for it. Since the funding is only for half a year starting in January, I'll have less time than allotted for delphinusdnsd 1.6.0. So I'll have to work twice as good/fast. You can research backwards to my original mention of this in this blog by searching for "prototypefund" I had six hits. The website of the prototypefund.de is here.0 comments
I know what it feels like to be working when it's way hot, and having no aircon. Here is an article at the bbc, that has an interesting chart of temperature rise since 1850. It looks to me that since 1975 the line has been going straight up. WW2 is evident too, and by extension to the first line that goes straight up one can draw a line from 1900 and it is similar sloped. The industrial age has hurt us, how/when can we make amendments?0 comments
Story is at DelphinusDNS.org blog. It's amazing the code has held so long, even though it was bogus.0 comments
Since I got a blog for delphinusdnsd I never talk about it here, so here is some updates.
It was removed from DENIC sometime last week. Yesterday I removed it from my nameservers. This was the last remnant of me being involved with freifunk in Schweinfurt, and on one hand I'm glad it's gone and on another hand I miss the people in that organization that I left around 2 years ago. I had to prioritize on issues and I chose working on my DNS server instead of working on a wifi network (firmware and websites).0 comments
