Blogroll: DelphinusDNS project now on GITHUB

May 1st, 2020

This is already two days old news but if you don't follow the delphinusdnsd blog which split from this blog, here is the news, delphinusdnsd is now on github. I'm very happy about this progress!


My "vacation" is over

April 30th, 2020

Well I didn't find any jobs that were interested in hiring me. Covid-19 outbreak didn't help at all here. I'll be seeking social assistance for the month of may and possibly beyond. My money has run out. I'm poor once again. Accomplishments during my "vacation" were 2 releases for delphinusdnsd (1.3 and 1.4) which are open source and every year they get better. So literally I was working, only not for money, because delphinusdnsd is open source. I had some other personal successes that I'm not going to mention. More on this:

It's amazing that I managed to spend 2 years unpaid off my own savings. I guess I was richer than I thought.


Administrivia: I have turned autocomplete to off

April 28th, 2020

In forms on this blog site you will not get old suggestions anymore. It was long my desire to change this.


EU, different from China or USA?

April 26th, 2020

We know China is different politics wise. But USA and EU seem to be on course as capitalist political societies. Rich people who invest in these countries make a killing off its infrastructure and often make a killing in monetary wealth. Often they do this on the backs of the poor.

Politically I suppose I'm for making europe a bit different where rich people are treated like someone from the middle class and have a harder time making money but poor people have an easier time making money to get by living. Perhaps we need something like universal basic income to set us apart from the others. Not quite ultra capitalist but not communist either.


Stats from one of my Nameservers

April 24th, 2020

I collect stats for number of queries and for what domain name. Here is a table of what people looked up on one out of my three nameservers over the past year:

percentage of totaldomain namenotes
18%"rhombus.centroid.eu."ipv4-only nameserver
14%"kite.centroid.eu."this nameserver
13%"centroid.eu."my domain
5%"mail.centroid.eu."mail server
4%"delphinusdns.org."another domain
2%"virgostar.net."another domain
2%"schweinfurtdating.de."another expired domain
1%"solarscale.de."another domain
1%"_25._tcp.mail.centroid.eu."likely a tlsa query (DANE)

It seems my NS records cause a lot of lookups (about half of them, 44%), I learn more about the domain name system all the time.


You can't always get what you want

April 23rd, 2020

Carl Benz (combustion) displaced horse drawn carriages and contributed a significant chunk to CO2 in our atmosphere. Digitalization (microchip) replaced photo developing techniques and caused layoffs. SpaceX Starlink will blanket the sky with satellites (Internet) and Astronomers predict it will end their careers or hobbies. Ice will likely melt due to global warming (current technology) and the next place to get naturally occuring ice will be from Mars. When do the benefits outweigh the drawbacks? Yes it's sad to see everything changing but changes bring new opportunities too. We're saying goodbye to an old life and hello to a new life (perhaps off this planet). We need to adjust to these changes because they are out of our control individually. The age of Aquarius may be starting soon. Can we save our planet still? Our only home thus far? I don't know of any efforts to save the planet other than people planting trees and plants (Africa/Asia).


Was COVID-19 man-made?

April 21st, 2020

Heise.de/Telepolis wrote this article over night. I don't know what to make of it, biology is not my expertise at all. If indeed the virus did escape a laboratory what should be the consequence? What should be our responses to this?


This is a historic photo (in more ways than one)

April 20th, 2020

On January 1st, 1959, the USS Skate became the first ship to surface at the North Pole of Earth. It was the second ship (submarine) at the North Pole after USS Nautilus. Get used to this image because scientists recently ran 40 simulations and determined that ice at the north pole will become first seasonal and eventually the north pole will become open waters. There will not be any polar bears to greet submarines (as you may have an image of in your mind), as they will all die if they go to the north pole. This earth is changing. We blew it. Can we cool earth again? I don't know. The photo is courtesy of wikipedia's USS Skate article.


I've taken down schweinfurtdating.de

April 18th, 2020

It was on is last leg having expired on the 4th of April anyhow. I think they gave me some grace time. I have removed the zone from my nameservers. This is the second domain this month to have expired.
