Got two books on post-quantum cryptography

June 10th, 2019

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).


Possibly getting rid of Mac OS

June 9th, 2019

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.


Delphinusdnsd has new TCP routines

June 8th, 2019

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.


The Government requires an app for purchases with CC on the Internet

June 8th, 2019

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.


Solstice in 16 days (start of summer)

June 5th, 2019

The June solstice is upon us again in 16 days. In Australia it's start of winter (even though they had snow in 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.


Domains for sale

June 4th, 2019

I have put the following domains for sale.

  • goldflipper.de
  • schweinfurtdating.de
  • solarscale.de
  • virgostar.net

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.


Sorry for any inconvenience

The webserver was down yesterday for some time, it wasn't just you.

Deleted a number of VPS's

May 27th, 2019

I have deleted blue, green, yellow and orange, and red I for some reason couldn't delete, so I asked it to be deleted. This is all in an effort to leave the cloud, as I have a bare-metal network now. Omega will be deleted next week hopefully, it is the last VPS I have left that is in production.
