Parship.de is a matching/dating service. After one year and 500 EUR or so, I
do not think I got the best service in the country. In fact I feel parship
got a free ride off my money. Like I told my mom I'd have a better deal with
a hooker for that money than get to look at the blurred out pictures of parship.
Unlucky for me I don't really believe in hookers. So I had one person who I
even talked to in messages there, noone else was interested in me. And she was
an 80 out of a possible 117 points, so rather a bad match. They base these
points on some psychological profile and try to match strengths with weaknesses.
She stopped talking to me just before christmas right after I told her I had
visual hallucinations before, I'm quite honest about my mental illness.
Hiding from myself rests on my conscience and I can't go through with it.
I like to be as honest as possible. In this case the person I talked with
wasn't interested in psychos. How boring.
So I won't be renewing and I have
already cancelled. Also I have noticed whenever they tried to match me with
someone else the other party was fat like me. Just an observance.. mix all
the psychos with the psychos, the fat ones with the fat ones and the coloured
with the coloured ones is the impression I got from that. In the end the
skinny, white and truely pretty people can continue their games of cheating,
lying and using others. Go ahead.. not my game! I can't lie I'm attracted
to normal sized women as much as anyone else. I'd date a fat one too
but I feel the algorithm chose them for me because they were fat, and I'm
sorta sick of that. In many cases, like in mine, being fat is not our fault
but a side-reaction to medication used.
Also I sorta missed the bus. If I meet someone and we possibly marry and have
kids... what worries me is that at older age there is higher chance of downs
syndrom for the babies, so I looked for women mostly 8-10 years younger than
me. And it felt weird because these women were just getting their lives going
and I felt I wasn't on their wavelength. It just didn't work out. I'm glad
for all those couples that met online through a matchmaker, but for me it
wasn't great. I dunno I don't think I'll ever marry or have children anyhow.
And getting into a relationship with someone who has kids...well that's too
hard for me to follow through with. I don't want to use them because they're
desperate finding a partner that can raise their kids, and it's too much of a
burden for me as well. I'm a big baby myself and needn't be an extra chore
for someone with a lot of chores. So meh. Forever doomed?

M-net was my old provider. They changed around 5 years ago and didn't give out
goodies such as static IP's. That peed me off enought that I decided to switch
the competition has all the stuff they have by now and more! I get VDSL2 now
and get 100/40 speeds (more like 102/38 but meh). All in all I'm happy with
this move. Unfortunately the new IPTV won't work on my network, I'm hoping to
be able to give it back to the ISP and get a discount for just IP and SIP
phone service. I still have to connect my SIP account but that shouldn't be

Linux for the city of Munich was innovative and popular. Now the CSU and SPD
municipal government wants to turn back the clock and go with Microsoft
products again. They forgot the lock-in they were in before. All over
Germany people said "you should go to Munich" if you had anything to do with
Linux. Such a movement should be rewarded not punished by tearing it down.
They say that Microsoft is the standard. Well, to be honest I haven't used
Microsoft products for over 20 years. I often can't find work when I'm
looking for new work, perhaps because I didn't buy into the Microsoft hegemony.
Those that use alternatives should be rewarded for being different in my
opinion. If you saw the business opportunities the alternatives can create
you'd want the alternative too. Microsoft is a dead-end. Anyhow shame on the
munich municipal government for their wrong decision.

I have updated the Network map on how my network will look like after monday:
[gaia]-- [raspberry pi]
\ | [mercury]
[phone1] - \ | |
--- [uranus] === [Access Point] --- [gamma] ---- to pppoe cloud
[phone2] - / |
|| +--[fritzbox LTE]------- to LTE network
|| +--[Telekom IPTV]
|| +--[Samsung TV]
New is that I drilled a hole through a wall for a cat5 link between access
point and venus. I have also laid conduit for 2x 10 meter cabling for the TV
and the IPTV set-top box. One thing that is funny is when I'm connected from
beta to supercluster which is on the Internet, and I reboot venus, then the
connection will drop between supercluster and beta. I haven't figured out
why yet though. There is an IPSEC tunnel going from beta via uranus via gamma
to mercury, that IPSEC's the part going over wireless. It too doesn't touch
venus, so mega weird.

Today I got a package in the mail. It was from Telekom.de. They sent me
a new set-top box for my TV. Also they sent me login credentials to their
network. On Monday next week my modem will likely go offline either before I'm
home or just after, and I'm going to put my new VDSL modem to use. I upgraded
the OS on my routers gamma and venus, so that they won't be panic'ing on
igmpproxy which is needed for the Telekom IPTV. I got everything prepared.
Monday is the big showdown though. I'm very excited as I'm going from 16/1 to
100/40 and I was hurting on the upload at nights. Better soon come!

Finally I tagged the tree and made a tarball. The news at
say the following:
DelphinusDNSD 1.1.0 has been released on January 28, 2017. New is a
dd-convert.c C program that replaces the ruby tool with the same name.
Also I have fixed Empty Non-Terminal (ENT) Names in this release, meaning
earlier version likely give wrong answers on the Internet. You can get
the source under the "Source" link. Mac OS X port has been dropped.
I'm glad this last years efforts were finished in time. Now I'm gonna rest it
a little and figure out where in what area I have to put my efforts next.

Schweinfurt got the first mesh between two non-associated parties (me and the
bakery Höreder Beck). As you can see on the yellow link that there is
a medium quality link there. However the link does disappear a lot due to
interference. I'm hoping on putting up a relay which is coloured red across
the parking lot, which shortens the distance to both endpoints. Hurrah

I'm putting the last few changes in to make this software ready to be tagged
and put up for download. If you'd like to beta test you have roughly 4 days
to grab a snapshot and try it out. So far I've tested this on Ubuntu, Rasbian,
OpenBSD, NetBSD, FreeBSD and OpenSuse, and it seems to work. The new release
will be version 1.1.0.

When it's day I look out my window a lot. I enjoy watching the pigeons do
their formation flying. And sometimes... I get this:
If you enlarge the image you may see more. It is three Apache gunships and
one Chinook (so I call them) that is a troop transporter for 25 or more fully
equipped troops. Anyhow these make a hell of a noise when they come around
so I was able to snatch a few pictures.

I come through with reduced energy, even though I pay more this year. This is
because the costs per KWh went up.
The apartment was mostly heated and not once did I freeze that I can remember.
But it would be nice if the 2014 Night values came back :-).
