Today is the blogs 11th anniversary

May 6th, 2020

Although this article displayed May 7th, it has a timestamp exactly at midnight meaning in GMT it is May 6th.

beta$ TZ=GMT date -r 1241647200
Wed May  6 22:00:00 GMT 2009
It's fair to say today is the anniversary, there was a few articles that I started deleting (forgetting) in the first few years but then I decided to retain it all. Happy Anniversary!


A new experiment

May 5th, 2020

We all have an alter-ego. It lives in our dreams and often makes no sense. On top of that I'm schizophrenic and thus I make no sense anyhow. I'm going to start writing down my dreams and delusions that I encounter since I predicted (to myself) the unleashing of a terrible virus to those that oppress me roughly in november. I needed something searchable that I could prove to myself I wasn't deluding myself. Here is a new (in dark mode) blog that I set up based on the centroid blog.

I do not know if I should write this stuff out because it will be embarrassing and may incriminate me as the source of say.. coronavirus, so here it is!


May the fourth^Wsource be with you!

May 4th, 2020

In October 2000 (almost 20 years ago), I was blessed to have three authors autograph their book for me! I want to show. The book is now close to 23-24 years old and it may fall apart soon. It survived a fire as well.

Easy little coder, Obi-wahn!


Domains of mine that will expire

May 3rd, 2020

Two domains I already mentioned they are in their post-expiration phase:

  • schweinfurtdating.de
  • goldflipper.de
These will cease at any time, in fact one is already been turned off. Then there is another two that will expire by and in september 2020.
  • freifunk-schweinfurt.de (expires in june)
  • virgostar.net (expires in september)
That leaves me with 5 personal domains and a number of domains that I host. That's as far as I can "cut the fat" basically, I'll have to do with what I have there for a while.


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).
