linux bug reporting means email spam

scumbag spammer Robert Soloway

Occasionally i find bugs in the zoo’s distro which i can work around  and on a 10+ year server that’s fairly easy to achieve and report the issue.

I even sometimes provide a fix and send it

Using a real email address means spam for non package related issues like bitcoin and apparently means i signed up on numerous email lists that i dont remember since the gmail account i used is very occasionally logged into and not the zoos primary email address.

Oh well email spam has always been full of scum like Robert Soloway so next time some marketer whines about how hard it is to email ponzi schemes like bitcoin [my blog] remember me and my spam folder on gmail.

I am glad i did not use the ‘real’ email address here at the zoo although thats very well protected.

Greetings from zimbabwe via zambia

gucci grace

Zimbabwe is gucci handbag paradise [my blog] and place that when i see it in the zoo’s logs just have blog about after all the shithole  needs a mention.

Domain not found; from=<>

Was off to a bad start to with but i give them credit for trying and was actually sent in Zambia


I miss ‘genuine’ Zimbabwe  how amusing it is that everybody uses them to scam.  Everyday is april foolls in .zw while they show off there genuine gucci handbags.

Its sort of the new Nigeria.

I miss .zw ip’s who dont seem to connect now like they once did. 


lets encrypt and five rounds with the manual plugin

Normally i would use

certbot certonly -a manual -d monkeyhouse.zoo --preferred-challenges dns

But since a change at lets encrypt that did not work so

certbot certonly -d .zoo -d http://www.zoo --apache

Actually did.

It was rather irritating. but i guess i used the apache plugin first  and then switched to the manual way back when [my blog].

If i remember i did blog it the apache plugin was not as sophisticated in the begining of certbot  . Arrgh.

I guess i could revoke and redo the the certs in the manual plugin but maybe that is a job in three months time.


Compiling danetls – an adventure.

Sisyphus is still a role model

I had a go at compling danetls – i already had ldns complied [ancient compile] for dnssec expiry the other things not so.  – for context [my blog]

It complies regardless bar this

make cc -g -Wall -Wextra -I. -I/usr/local/openssl/include -I/usr/local/include -c -o query-getdns.o query-getdns.c query-getdns.c:23:10: fatal error: getdns/getdns_ext_libevent.h: No such file or directory #include <getdns/getdns_ext_libevent.h> ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ compilation terminated. make: *** [: query-getdns.o] Error 1

Then works but does not appear to get tlsa records except for one domain.

/getdns-1.6.0/build$ cmake .. -- Found OpenSSL: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ (found suitable version "1.1.1d", minimum required is "1.0.2") -- Found OpenSSL: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ (found version "1.1.1d") CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.13/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:137 (message): Could NOT find Check (missing: CHECK_LIBRARIES CHECK_INCLUDE_DIR) (Required is at least version "0.9.6") Call Stack (most recent call first): /usr/share/cmake-3.13/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:378 (_FPHSA_FAILURE_MESSAGE) cmake/modules/FindCheck.cmake:92 (find_package_handle_standard_args) CMakeLists.txt:937 (find_package)

I guess is related to

23 February 2016: Wouter ub_ctx_set_stub() function for libunbound to config stub zones. sorted ubsyms.def file with exported libunbound functions

That.  It seems that this is a very specific compile job. 

Oh well.


future politics,j susskind

happy comrades queuing

isbn: 9780199625616 is book that has been on a read list of mine but i never got around to reading until now from 2015.

Comrade Susskind takes some very marxist positions and is sjw friendly – can you be groped in vr (my blog) then Susskind will believe it is possible.

Pikety (my blog) is referenced and the author seems unaware that free speech is an important truth.  This is a book for marxists and goes through the wunderkind technologies of digital buzzwords the marxists never invented such as blockchain, ubr and robots while designing the dystopian soviet empire version 2 perhaps they needed more gulags.

There is some value to this but as a skim it seems twitter is a dicatorship  and so compatible with marxism.  Not quite sure your average nation state will like that.

It also fails to mention world government (my blog) and if twitter can suspend non us users for hate speech to hedgehogs then clearly sovereignty is not covered. Freedom is a concept that can be dismissed according to the author and ethnic minorities only appear to have rights.

There is a half hearted attempt to ‘regulate’ as a middle ground but i am not sure google or twitter will  exist long term, facebook also has an aging demographic.

Anyhow get your buzzword bingo cards made and play.

covid-19 and eu immigration/globalsation

forget suntan lotion with an nbc suit

Spanish flu is not racist but Chinese flu is – both are facts.

After europe’s immigration debacle perhaps its no wonder that its effects have been bad for the native citizens of europe.

Europe leaders and Soros [my blog] hate natives and so are equally guilty of making covd 19 the thing that might  break the 27 member european union very few pay as well.

It will be interesting to see how globalisation copes with the 1919 rerun of spanish flu.

Somehow i  dont think being a chinese businessman will be the easiest.

ten rounds with tlsa dane records

mafia run the british red cross

I had an issue with tlsa [my blog] which at replacement four times a year is going to be thing eventually- having duplicate records and both ipv4 and ipv6 made it kind of hard since it was correct but wrong.

It was my fault but one of those really weird bugs to figure out.  I want my five hours back.

Quite how dns zone files with the duplicate line* make this a problem is worth thinking on  in conjunction with web servers so i am glad it is me and not them.

*quite legitimate if your rolling keys in dnssec etc

an oven light saga and leap year problems

An neff oven light packed up and could not be unscrewed – so some bright spark bought a cover which naturally was the wrong size and so it got returned and an oven technician was dispatched.

They had a  go a the humans using the oven – and got the light working.  Some weeks later the light failed.

Somehow we know the answer how many engineers it takes to change an light bulb.

I was told a further funny story about the same oven which hates leap years [my blog].

So glad it still works despite being retarded on date, as far as i know this is a jewish orthodox [my blog] feature for those who cannot even touch anything on a friday so not a used feature here in the monkey house.

Oddly the time of day worked but it got stuck on the 29th February until a human fixed the date

There must have been a lot of  bad jews this year in the weeks following the leap year after all if you cannot open a door or even turn off a light i mean you must be a very bad person*.

The 29th of Feb is the end of the world according to a neff branded oven.

No fix is apparent since that appears to need a engineer to do even if possible. Its not a feature used but like with alll newish stuff comes with features that might be inclusive but seem plain odd.

*Gehenna here you come

Alex Salmonds (Macbeth’s) three witches

Scotland is a strange place and our modern day macbeth is Alex Salmond [blogs i read] who while failing to deliver independence has been thrown to the three witches being government civil servants, the snp, and the me too mob.

Having won all three of these attacks it seems that the Krankies who look like Nicola Sturgeon [my blog] have failed to tarnish a man who clearly is not a tin pot dictator nor deviant while politics, civil servants and upset leavers clearly threw as much poo at him which did not stick.

Never met the man but it seems you don’t get where he got without making enemies and perhaps also answers the question why dont nice people go into politics.

Its nice to see that despite the man bad narrative and censorship as noted above did not sway the twelve scottish person jury.

Having been thrown three hagis and wrong was not found except in devolved government, the police, and snp i do wonder what a genuine scottish citizen is deemed able to avoid the treatment offered to Mr Salmond.
