I have left the cloud behind. This morning I deleted omega.virgostar.net,
it was my last bastion in cloud-land. The provider was VULTR. I still
have 21 dollars in my account there. I wonder if it'll be there in 4 years
when I return to the cloud.
The reason I left the cloud is because I require privacy. Cloud computers
such as VPS's could not guarantee that to me so I set up a network of dedicated
servers. It's a lot more money. But noone is gonna read my communications
for 5 dollars a month via vulnerabilities such as spectre and zombieload.
In 4 years a lot of things can change, and if bare-metal servers become ultra
cheap I may never return to cloud land. We'll see.

This subject was lacking in my book collection. One is from 2010 and the
other was pre-ordered it will publish in november. One thing to note is that
I did not order from amazon (who is getting worst and worst for books).

Apple has revealed that iTunes will go away. Depending how the outcome of
the new program and my DJ software will go, I may put OpenBSD on this MBP.
If the DJ software can't read any of the songs anymore I will discard Mac
OS, if not I will keep it. It's simple as that. iTunes basically determines
whether I stay or go on.
In order to run OpenBSD on this laptop I may have to mod it a little. I'll
have to get a USB<->ethernet adapter that works with OpenBSD as I don't think
the thunderbolt adapter that I have will work. Also I don't think the built-in
wifi will work. I'll have to go with my small urtwn(4) devices which don't do
5 Ghz, and have little range.
It's a shuffling around of a lot of things. But it's Apple that initiated it.
Maybe it's better for privacy this way after all.

Before yesterday's change one could only connect 1 client at a time with
delphinusdnsd and it would block subsequent connections. Now up to 64
connections can connect simultaneously before the server simply hangs up any
new connections. It may have broken the Linux port in the snapshots, I'll
see if I can fix that next week. But it works on OpenBSD.

Last week I got a weird mail from my bank. They require that I download an
app, in order to do CC purchases online. It's government requirement. I'm
very concerned where this leads us, who has oversight of this app? Why did
I have to go back into setting to turn its camera permission off after I had
added my card? I'm worried about a deep state intrusion.

The June solstice is upon
us again in 16 days. In Australia it's start of winter (even though they had
Queensland a few days ago), and here in Germany it's start of summer. I have
never been to an event like a druids gathering at stonehenge, and don't want to
either. But the day is special for sure.

I have put the following domains for sale.
I'm asking 100 EUR each or best offer. This would guarantee you getting the
domain before it's expired. Basically what happens is that domain squatters
probably take the domain for a while, as is usual. The domains were used
mostly for SMTP/e-mail and there may be mails going into these still. AFAIK
I have moved most important emails over to another address. Getting mails
from adult dating sites is not preventable but without a catchall SMTP
account a bounce would occur, as user.something was not used. Obviously I
do not want anyone re-using dating sites that I once used and the agreement
made will be that you do not make use of the emails to authenticate into these
sites. Otherwise it is a criminal offence under identity fraud laws. You're
getting a domain name, not a license to look into my past.

Here is the story, I found
