once in a while we get e-mails with spoofed sender’s address claiming to come from @ourorg.com. this can fool some of our users; outlook displaying an image of sender solely based on the From: field does not help here. some of those messages have different Return-Path pointing to @someotherscammy.site, other have it also pointing to ...

i’ve spent two weeks traveling around Tenerifa with my parents. we’ve seen a bit of the commercial-heavy south near Los Cristianos, rocky west coast in Los Gigantes, semi-rural areas of Icod de Vinos, a bit of Puerto de la Cruz and post-volcanic Teide and Puerto de Guimar. our hiking routes – below.
i’ve made a mistake of buying an audiobook from audible.com. before doing it i’ve briefly checked if the file will be provided in mp3; according to audible.com/sh yes. in reality – no.
i’m taking backups of vmware esxi vms weekly using ghettovcb. it has been working greatly for many years. once in a while i need to recover a particular file from particular backup. there’s quicker way than just restoring the whole vm!
i’ve spent nearly two weeks traveling around Albania. i’ve started and ended the journey on a Greek island – Corfu [ i could not find any reasonably-priced flight from Berlin to Tirana ] and from there travelled with a ferry to Sarandë.
i’ve ‘convinced’ my samba running under debian wheezy/jessie to provide me access audit logs without being too verbose. here’s how.
i stayed in Bangkok for 3 nights. i took one-day trip to Ayutthaya and have spent rest of the time hiking around. the longest hike i took was to Taling Chan floating market. as in many other cases it was more about the way there and back than the destination itself.
as in 2012 i’ve done a one-day trip to Ayutthaya. it was very much worth repeating and getting away from noisy Bangkok.
on my way from Koh Tao to Bangkok i’ve stayed for one night at Chumphon and then Hua Hin. the first one was totally not-touristy, second – quite opposite; i’m glad that i decided not to rush towards Thailand’s capital and visited both.
i took a ferry from Koh Samui to Koh Tao and stayed there for 2 nights. the island was quite touristy but still worth visiting. i looked at the map and thought to myself.. if there’s a route coming from the west and another one from the east – there surely must be some path ... Read More
during my recent trip to Thailand i’ve spent 4 days at the Koh Samui island. i’ve stayed in the southern part – near Baan Hua Thanon – fisherman village with quite obvious Muslim influence. the choice was great – area was not very touristy and a great starting point for hikes.
while visiting Hong Kong this winter my colleague and ex-flatmate from Goteborg times took me to the Kowloon Byewash Reservoir / Golden Hill Country Park.
the idea: i’d like to run kvm/lxc on debian, have guests bridged to couple of vlans and handle the network failover on the host level. network failure should be detected using arp probes not just the link [ mii ] status. after few attempts i got it working in the test environment.
i’ve received for testing a new dell r630. before buying few of those i wanted to make sure that debian wheezy has kernel including all the needed drivers. it seems that it has.
i have MySQL that is run on arrays of increasing size: i remembered that the query optimizer will not be able to use existing indices for lastModified columns but.. the query execution time was acceptable, so i did not bother. recently much more data was added and query above, repeated quite often, caused a lot ...

i’ve sepnt two August/September weeks traveling with my parents from Dubrovnik via Sarajevo and Zagreb to Budapest. short brain-dump with hiking maps follows.
at work we rent a dedicated server from OVH; except unexplained openvpn throttling all is working pretty well for the price we pay. besides primary IPv4 address OVH can provide few additional ‘failover’ IPv4 addresses and /64 IPv6 subnet. in our setup some of IPv4s and IPv6s are routed to a KVM VM. below – ...

i’ve bought 2x Dell PowerEdge t20 – they’ll serve as HA pair of routers/vpn endpoints/file servers for a new office. it was the first time i played with intel amt. it’s not bad but neither perfect.
i’ve spent 2 weeks at the beginning of March at Gran Canaria. below – list of the more interesting walking trails we’ve taken.
a while ago i helped a colleague with moving away from mysql-based text search based on MATCH .. AGAINST to sphinxsearch to improve the performance. without much surprise this helped a lot to improve the response time. recently i was asked to take a look at the setup again and see if we can do ...
