It is time for peace on the planet, let your weapons rest. The human family is under attack with this coronavirus (covid-19) outbreak. There is also no time to blame anyone for it. If you want to blame someone blame the aliens. And they are in their spaceships far away, so we can't even get at them either.
I was very much upset that someone tried to break into my system yesterday. This is no time to be doing such a deed. It is cowardly, and we know who the perpetrators are. Let it rest.0 comments
Likely at or just after 8PM. Here is the report angela merkel .. (spiegel.de). Since no news is good news, it can only mean bad news.0 comments
If you need any help let me know. My resume is found here. Have a look. Given that these are difficult times I can contribute I have 8 years experience working from a home office. Preferably part-time but full-time is OK depending on the circumstances.0 comments
Mayor Remele was voted to stay as mayor, next was Eder, then Laschka. There was a 45% voter turnout so relatively low. Coronavirus outbreak is likely to blame.
At city hall the individual parties got the following results:
This represents the following seats:
If you voted, you're fearless. The most fearless neighbourhood is Eselshoehe which had the highest voter turnout (37%). Good for them, and hopefully noone was infected with corona during this process.0 comments
I just hope I didn't catch a virus. Other than that, go Holger Laschka and the greens! Good luck!0 comments
Many people dread working from home because of the covid-19 outbreak. It's half as bad. You'll get used to it. I did it for 6 hours a day for 7 years. Make sure you sometimes get to tour the office so you get a feeling of worth for the operation, that's one thing I missed when I was working remotely. A period of 2-3 weeks for a tour, to me seems reasonable. It will give you a feeling that you're still here and worth something to be part of something greater than you. Feel free to explore technologies that you may not have explored before. I worked for a VOIP company, so a sip phone was around. We did try teleconferencing with a camera but I didn't like it so much, try to keep it off as much as possible (a boss has no right to watch you work, that's repulsive). I didn't have this problem that I had other people in my apartment when I worked remotely but if you do have an "office" try to set rules with family that when you're at work, you're at work and unless it's an emergency you're not around. Do close the door if you must. For air-flow purposes I often had the door open though.0 comments
I've over the last few weeks given this a lot of thought. When I read a post on hackernews about time_t (seconds since 1970 epoch) rolling over to a 10th digit (1 billion seconds), I thought to look into software breaking on Sept. 10, 2001. Unfortunately it wasn't covered long in the media due to the terrorist attack in NYC the next day, which caused everyone to forget what happened before. But I'd like to pick up the pieces a little and remind people that there was a Sept. 10th apocalypse. In a slashdot post I found while googling it was mentioned that software like FreeBSD's cvsup, OpenLDAP slave servers and UW IMAP broke. I would assume anything that had 9 digit space for representing a time_t value would have rolled over to 0.

Here is a good sum-up of these rollover dates (that I also found with google):
Thanks PiRATA! I received the book "The art of software security assessment" by Mark Dowd et al. This was a present in an exchange of gifts between PiRATA and me. I sent him a K&R and he sent me this.0 comments
Yes I'm a winter-born person (officially). I'm turning fourty-four. The official start of spring is on March 20, 2020. This is the calendar start of spring because that date is also the equinox. Daylight and night are equally long that day.0 comments
When I look at my Resume/CV I am not a screwup. I've been fired three times in my life and that's not exactly much. Let's have a run-down where I have been fired from (oldest last):
All other jobs I left on my own free will in order to find a better paying job, or better opportunity. It didn't always work out as with Ibcos GmbH, I actually feel I would have liked to be back at Jive Canada. It was too bad and since that time I'm unemployed and can't find a decent job.
I'm at a very low emotional state right now, and it's not my fault in my eyes. I should be happy because I have a great working history and it's amazing that I had all this free time to persue Open Source project and take it to a level that noone, and I repeat noone can duplicate inside a short period of time. I've been working 15 years on this DNS project. That's 15 years experience.
So this employer who puts me down for not being able to produce documents and certificates of my job history can take a hike. Why would I want to work for someone that is speaking down on me in authority when he's got none? Thanks for nothing, I'm very receptive on negative emotions. You should understand, I'd rather be on welfare in this screwed up state than to work for an abusive employer. I have that choice.0 comments
