What is Goldflipper doing these days? Have a look.
Such a goldy!0 comments
Running delphinusdnsd twice or three times at a time on a single host (but different ports) has always been pretty hard as there was some confusion to the pidfiles. I tried to solve this with a control socket that is controllable via dddctl. Stopping and restarting delphinusdnsd should now work well, you can start it too but are only limited to 2 argument options (-s and -f) to a start. -s is specifying the path to a socket and -f specifies the config file to use. I know I'll enjoy this very much.0 comments
Yesterday I was in a coding mood. I didn't have much time, but this is the diff I came up with. I touched code that was close to 15 years old and removed it! I'm very proud of this feat! It wasn't really bad, code but it could have been compacted a lot more, that's what I did. The result may be a bit slower for answers in delphinusdnsd, but the code is a lot more manageable/readable.0 comments
It never did much, and was last used as a testbed for testing opensmtpd configs. But. It will be missed. Thank you upsilon. Now that I have red, green and blue at hetzner online which are in nuremberg, falkenstein and helsinki respectively I'm set for the future on these. I still have to rename tau.virgostar.net to blue completely right now it only exists as DNS forward entry. But that'll be done another time.0 comments
It is located at hetzner in falkenstein, which is a location I haven't yet used I don't think. I'm going to make green the new webserver instance, and I'll use this and next week to copy everything over. The vps is the same spec as red.centroid.eu: 2 GB RAM, 20 GB disk, 20 TB traffic, for 2.96 EUR/mo.0 comments
I must..have..OpenBSD :-). So I have put it emulated in HyperV which comes with Windows 10 Pro. Have a look!
And a dmesg from inside the OpenBSD guest:

This is awesome! I have recovered some respect for Windows. And hats off for people like MikeB at OpenBSD who made this work!0 comments
I wrote a small message to openbsd-misc (this one). In the process of doing so it cost me 1.2 MB to exit my network in NXDOMAINS that get logged per query on my nameserver.
It turns out whenever I mail to the list, my domain name "centroid.eu", gets incepted at the remote nameservers when the remote mail servers who receive my mail ask for a dmarc and DKIM signature. I have known about this a long time now, but I decided to blog about it today.
I get about 3000+ queries per mail on omega, which is the only nameserver out of two that logs queries for centroid.eu lookups. Since centroid.eu is DNSSEC protected the NXDOMAINS do an NSEC3 proof of nonexistance which is up to 600 bytes per answer.
It doesn't anger me, but I'm wondering if there is a more silent way of posting to OpenBSD-misc?0 comments
I got my electricity bill for 2018. Better for the environment, worse on my wallet is the trend here.
Electricity is down by a whole 1000 KWh, this is what I wanted to achieve, however it spiked in day use which is more expensive for me. Sadly for me it cost 50 EUR more for the year which they'll deduct from my bank account.
So what has changed in this household? Other than no freifunk (which really didn't take up much electricity) I can't think of much. I possibly found the trick to using the electric heating system better, which caused savings. I dunno. 1000 KWh are a big difference...0 comments
I'm planning on dumping everything but these domain names:
To help with this effort I'm also going to be getting three new vps's and retiring two. The remaining I'm going to rename.
