I can tell you one thing: for me this was a great great decision. I spent so much time with my kids and my family; learned tons about stuff that interests me, and my tech work was limited to a minimum - perfecting my mailserver for the most part 😎

Anyway I do have a ton of stuff to share but it'll have to wait. 4am here! Already way past my normal bedtime.

Thank you!! to everyone who's reached out to me - I'll check in properly again as soon as time permits and things have settled. !!!

I have been around every now and then but not nearly as much as I used to be. Best of all: in the last 1Β½ or 2 months I avoided -all- social media, well, apart from this place which I have been checking out every now and then. But -no- social stuff and most importantly -no- Twitter and media consumption. At all.

The BLM stuff was the last straw for me. Stuff all became so hostile and crazy that I pretty much only "consumed" (what a word) content from a tiny list of creators I like.

Before I pop off to bed just a quick scribble from the voidzosphere!

Today I realized that I have probably never been away from the Internet for this much since we switched from 64k ISDN to broadband somewhere in the late 90s.

The absence's only temporary β€” from how it looks now I will "let's get social" again from somewhere in August, and bring you up to speed with where I've been and what's been going on. Looking forward to sharing some nice stories and make content on the No Agenda stream!!

Been improving my mailserver. Added Sender Rewriting Scheme support for aliases i.e. offsite recipients, for which email has to be rewritten in order to not get blocked, without this my mail server seems to impose as the sender of a domain that might be rejected by SPF.

Long story. But anyway.

Stumbled upon this goodie and it made my day.

Another note to self : convert numbers from and to human readable output:

echo "163564736" | numfmt --to=iec

echo "156M" | numfmt --from=iec

Thanks, GNU.

"Defund the police" doesn't mean some libertarian, less taxation scheme.It means they will funnel money to woke organizations that purposely hide race/crime statistics, allow crime to skyrocket, and purposely disrupt private security schemes. twitter.com/kingcowpoke/status #Libertarian

Only mobile Internet for us in the coming weeks, until our move to the new home. New house will get half a gbit! Very exciting. Until then it'll be 4G so Corona won't get to me! PFEW.

At any rate: you guys better not be breaking anything while I'm gone-ish!!

(And I'll be available in case of an emergency, of course)

After being declared a "domestic organization" by the United States State Department, defiant parades suddenly emerge across the nation, oddly riding what appears to be a fleet of 2020 Toyota HiLux pickup trucks.

It's amazing, how much love one can feel. Such a marvelous blessing. Such a wonderful day.

Today me and my family were baptised and my wife and I were confirmed into the Catholic faith. πŸ₯³
