Here I post updates on websites and infrastructure, my very important opinions and thoughts no one asked for. If you'd like to subscribe to this bullshittery then RSS feed at your service. :)

Rambling: Been reading a blog on notbob.i2p last night.

Yesterday was reading a blog on notbob.i2p and found reviews on my main website and a file share. Reading through them first time made me feel somehow embarrassed . :)

Hmm, interesting, how screenshots are made that an SVG logo got broken? :/ Same thing on neocities. I used Firefox and Chromium for testing how my websites look, and had to experiment to find a right font size for chromium.

> My only real complaint is how infrequent and short the blog entries are.

Yeah, true, I'm not wordy most of the time. :)

And, 3/5 for using JavaScript (on main website), for me, using JS to add some additional (foremost convenient) functionality is absolutely appropriate. :) I'm the one of those who doesn't blame an instrument because it is being used for doing evil things. On a mindflow page it allows to filter posts by category. And on a guestbook page it allows to refresh CAPTCHA without having to copypasting your message.

> Blog entries going back about two years.

Before that I was hosted on neocities and those blog entries are left there, and there wasn't much since 16 April 2018, just 14 (including latest after a move to self-host) at the time of this post.

Since that review about the main website (19 December 2022) there was almost no changes in terms of content. Since then I was working on rewriting all the sites from NodeJS to Go. Absolutely worth it. :)

As for the review of the file share. I see it was made just in time when I was writing my own HTTP router and slashes was a little broken. xD

Also, I see in the comments complaints about rate limits, well, yeah, seems that rates I set in NGiNX turned to be way too restrictive. Which is strange, because I did tests, and 12 reqs per sec seemed legit. :/ Okay, decided to turn rate limiting off, will see if it was justified in the first place.

> The stock Java I2P ratelimit is rather extreme.

All this time I had 3072 kB/s up and down, now, after replacing an SSD, I upped it to 6144 kB/s, so that was the rate limiting of NGiNX. :|

> Thank you, I found a book (in EPub format) I was looking for those past few weeks thanks to that site! -- Anonymous

It is always awesome to read such messages. Glad I helped you. <3

Also, been running i2pd for a week, and got back to java version, and that's because under i2pd browsing my sites was extremely slow to do, files on the file share just didn't load, and an upload service was the same. I wonder why is that, is it a real speed and the java router just detects that I'm accessing my local sites though it and route it directly, and to test I should install i2p router locally on my PC, or i2pd is really that slow to host services..? A rate for i2pd was set to 6144 kB/s.

And what's most important is that from there I found that my RSS was broken, and, after a brief look around, was found that that happened because Jade treats link tag from RSS like a link tag from HTML which is self-closing, so had to (and did of course) find a workaround. Also, I found that a date format was wrong, fixed this as well. Sorry, I don't read my own feed. :) Now it is 100% valid.

Also, to mindflow posts a url field was added to hold a link to a topic of a post. In RSS such link replaces a default link to a post on a mindflow page, and on the mindflow page it is showed at first line of a post as this: "Link: ...". Also updated all 69 (lel) previous posts.

So, if you, anon, have my RSS feed in your reader then I strongly suggest you to re-add it, because it was really fucked up.

Thank you for your attention. Have a good day. <3

Update: Made a switch to ezstream.

And that's because I'm tired of liquidsoap keeps shitting itself. Everything's fine with music files it's playing, yet it fails again and again and logs doesn't give any clues (log level set to 5 (debug)) for what the fuck is going on (just "Failed to resolve a request: ... . Playlist failed"). It can fail like four times and then play that next song and shit itself at one of the others.

I've read through man ezstream and it, actually, looks promising, yet it cannot switch "intake"s (sources), so it cannot switch to live stream if I ever want to. But, otherwise, it can take songs from a program/script it can execute, so... Maybe... I will finally add some jingles. But that's another story. xD

Update: Migrating to a new SSD.

An old Smartbuy Jolt 120GB finally started to fail after writing 166751GB to it. xD Hopefully it can be read, I noticed that some files started to fail to edit with fsync error. There's 28 reallocated sectors. Been serving since summer 2020. xD

I bought a new Kingston A400 120GB back in May 2022, and was waiting till I sort the stuff out before migrating, but... Well... KEK.

So, I'll be fully back online soon, next day probably.

Update: Back to onions.

Well, all this time I just didn't care. But today a thought came on mind that I actually can use a bridge to host a HS and here I am!

All links are at home page. Now aren't striked. :)

Update: I'm back online.

Don't know what happened but my laptop stopped to boot from any drive under UEFI. Only setting a legacy mode and installing GRUB with BIOS loader fixed that. Something really fucked up with its UEFI. Just rebooted as usual and poof, no bootable device found. Well, I'm finally back.

Update: Guestbook is working again.

I found that CAPTCHA always throws 403 code. And I fixed that by manually providing "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" header to fetch() POST request. Guess that was the reason why there were no posts for so long. Sorry. xD

Update: Migration to domain.

Due to impossibility of domain renewal I bought a new domain which I am migrating to. Well, this time for an even longer time I hope. :) And it is even cheaper than a .top domain was! :) I set up DNS records, so it needs time to spread over the Internet, and I need to go to sleep anyway. :)

Update: Laptop shutdown for maintenance.

Maintenance is from 13:27 to 14:10 UTC. Need to clean it from dust, and wanna put a Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module back in. Found out about a chan_mobile addon for Asterisk, wanna play with it. :)

Update: Oops...

Only now I found out that NGiNX was misconfigured and websites was not reachable via I2P. :/

Update: Radio playlist update #22

Feerix - bloodthirsty, Radiohead - 2 + 2 = 5, Декабрь - Мы не оставим города свои, Инфинити - Где ты?

Update: Guestbook changed a little.

A good little thought came on my mind today. Why the fuck do I need your e-mail addresses? You better share your websites. So I purged emails from a DB and, of course, removed a field.

Update: Radio playlist update #21

Shiro Sagisu - Fly Me To The Moon, Янка Дягилева - Я стервенею, Чайф: Не спеши, Аргентина-Ямайка 5:0, Сектор Газа: Туман, Пора домой, Бомж.

Update: Added CAPTCHA to a guestbook.

Today I completed my CAPTCHA service and integrated it in a guestbook. Now links in message are allowed, but it depends on you.

Update: Anons, I made it. An article "Setting up a mail server" was completed.

Unbelievable, I finally found the strength to do it. First rewrote an article "How to move a root partition from SD card off to external drive on Raspberry Pi". Then came up with idea and completed a "Hardening Mikrotik" article in approximately 6 hours. And then this! Wew.

Will read through it later to fix any yikes moments, and maybe add something more. :)

Update: I'm happy to present you a new article: Hardening Mikrotik.

I got a little tired from reading about how insecure Mikrotik routers are. How they are becoming a part of botnets. That comes from poor configuring. In this article I covered a few solid ways to protect your router.

Update: Re: On today's downtime.

I believe it deserves a separate post. Wew, today in 08:12:04 UTC I went back online. Dunno what happened, last time it lasted 3 days, and they at least told me the reason (trunk line near my home was ripped off at construction site, classic). All I know the trouble was inside a house.

Update: On today's downtime.

Around 1 pm UTC internet went down, no link on cable. That's it. Will update this post when get back online.

Update: A new public service for ya: file upload!

I plan to rewrite my websites in Go and I started with implementing a file upload service. :) I had this idea long before, and tried to make one interesting feature as one-time download. But after some research I come up with conclusion that it is impossible without making a special client that would send a confirmation.

So, the limit is 128MiB and 48 hours. And overall capacity for this service is set to 200GiB. That's for now, will see.

Update: Radio playlist update #13

Amount of Carbon Based Lifeforms was drastically reduced from 171 to 36 songs. :) It was just a link to theirs discography, where some albums have two versions, so some songs was presented twice on a playlist.

Update: Radio playlist update #12

I've thrown a lot of Falkenbach on the radio. Also, following songs: Eddie Vedder - Long Nights, Manu Chao - Carreteiro, PALC - С каждым.

Update: Radio playlist update #11

Diary: 2021. Outcomes.

How to say it better... Alas, not good at english swearings.

Worst fucking year ever. Fucked it in a mouth and other suitable, and not so much, holes. And if there wasn't enough, then would make a new ones and fucked in them until there's nothing but a pile of shit will stay. Wew...

Year of disease and death. Fuck this chinese flu. We got illed with COVID-19 this spring and got over it in June. But aftermatch hit my grandpa in October. He got a stroke and died in 3 days unconscious because of cerebral edema.

Won't give too much details, just say we had a little to no, ghostly, hope for him to recover. His health was fucked badly and without this COVID-19. It just broke him completely, irrecoverably, touched every of his chronic illnessnes, all of them were related to blood, bones and brain, so shit was serious.

He was in chernobyl, was sent there very soon after catastrophe took place, and no matter what precautions he done radiation, obviously, fucked him up. Oh, he just turned 74 years old in September and that's what happened. Oh, if only not this shitty flu...

Well, I guess now you understand why I wasn't replying to anything. Just was doing minor updates to get distracted.

Thanks for your attention.

And wanna say a special thank to a guy that sent me in an email an easy fix for Gitea using nginx's sub_filter to replace domains on pages accordingly to what domain you access it with. Alas, your mail provider is using Spamhaus block lists, and I'm sitting on a dynamic residential connection, so getting instantly rejected. Hope you will see this post. Thank you.

Update: FYI Tor is now blocked in Russia.

And that's why you couldn't reach me using .onion addresses.

Update: Added a note on variables in a NGiNX article.

I made use of variables in my nginx config, and wanted to make a note on how and where they can be used.

Update: On today's fuck up with a radio.

Back from work, sit and listen, and suddenly notice that same song started again. Checked logs, and kek'd. Since 1 am UTC liquidsoap shitted his pants and began repeat She Past Away - Soluk, Shaman - Hunka Lunka, and Lacrimosa - Letzte Ausfahrt : Leben. Nice choose, I must admit. xD I updated liquidsoap to 2.0.0 yesterday evening. Will see tomorrow if it happen again.

Update: Radio playlist update #10

Some more Octoberland songs: Glowstream, Recurrent Stroke, Summer's Dying Twitch, and Wastelands.

Also: The Turtles - Happy Together (Remastered) and Vera Lynn - We'll Meet Again.

Update: Radio playlist update #9

Persephone's Bees - Nice Day, The AmpFibians - Adios, Tuco, The AmpFibians - Enigma of the Deep, :Wumpscut: - Remember One Thing.

Update: A report on what I did during the last days.

I brought some client JavaScript to do quality of life additions to a file share. Now audio, video and images are opened in an overlay with a left click.

Some minor changes on a website. I added the address helper links for my i2p domains. Dunno why, but my registered domains on inr.i2p still didn't make it to alive hosts list, yet they are listed when queried through search and theirs jump service. Also submited them to identiguy.i2p, will see.

The outpost got updated as well. Further reduced, the about page was removed and contacts placed at the index page.

Update: Radio playlist update #8

Was listening to Lacrimosa today and found a set of missed songs I MUST add to a playlist. :)

Here are the songs: Ein Hauch Von Menschlichkeit [Suche - Part II], Sacrifice [Hingabe - Part I], Nichts Bewegt Sich, Liebesspiel, Warum So Tief, und Letzte Ausfahrt - Leben.

Also two more songs: Young Leosia - Szklanki, D.H.T - Magic Melody (hardcore mix).

Update: I've registered I2P domains.

I decided to register a set of domains on inr.i2p. Now they need time to get into an alive hosts file. So I provide you with address-helpers: arav.i2p, radio.arav.i2p, files.arav.i2p, git.arav.i2p.

Update: FTP server is turned off. Forever.

Farewell, your time is over. HTTP is just way more secure, easier to setup and reliable this days, and demands just one port to work. Ports 20, 21, and a range for the PASV connections are closed.

Update: On the recent outage and a new HDD.

Long story short, there was a fiber-optic line breakage on 2nd of July that was eliminated in three days.

And good news. I bought a new 2TB HDD (Toshiba L200) for a laptop server, now that should be enough, I'm not a hoarder after all. :) 500 gigs was "fine", especially if I'd delete something, but I decided to buy a new one, since that one is already pretty aged (manufactured in 2013). I keep the old one as an offline backup of my important shit.

Three more songs were added to playlist: Alvvays - Next of Kin, Neko Jump - Poo (Japan ver), and Neuman - Battle Starship.

Update: ScrapTheChan ver. 0.5.0 released.

I rewrote it in a way more sane way. Now it is easy to write more parsers. I wrote a generalised parser for all Tinyboard based IBs (or with identical API).

Added --skip-posts (or just -S) option to skip given amount of posts.

Link to a release.

Update: Radio playlist update #3.

New songs were added: AllINAll - The Wave Most Surfed (The Road Most Travelled Surf Version), Electric Light Orchestra - Twilight, Hombres G - Devuélveme a mi chica, Hombres G - Separados (feat. Bebe), Morandi - Save me feat. Helene, Sylver - Lay All Your Love On Me.

Update: httpprocwatchd has been released.

A few weeks ago I wrote a handy HTTP service that returns a JSON object of process names with boolean values that telling us if process is running. It is written in Go and after a little rewrite and choosing a name I finally published it.

Update: Now git is available as a hidden service.

Now you can browse my Gitea instance via Tor and I2P. Alas, it requires you to have a fixed domain and root URL specified in a config. So some links are pointing to, like files in releases and a cloning URL.

Tor: qqitm7qlsbbubwmjos4cqzmvkqidg34rfnbyhuydhalep33fbvh22xyd.onion

Update: Radio playlist update #2

Beborn Beton - New Born King and 相対性理論 - チャイナアドバイス were added.

Update: Radio playlist update #1

From now on I will post what music I've added to the radio. And what I've added are: André Rieu - The Second Waltz, Cake - Hem Of Your Garment and Dernière Volonté - L'Appel.

Update: New year. Big changes.

All this time I was working on a look of a website. And just for a last week I said to myself that I'm tired of editing every single thingy across all pages. So I came to conclusion that it's time to try NodeJS. So I took Koa and Pug and ported my website to it. Well, it's really amazing. Code's so clean now (if you only saw a code of a PHP version of guestbook... xD). Template engines are an invaluably great invention. :)

Yeah, I got rid of Javascript on the outside, but instead, bring it inside. xD Anyway, I was always thinking that Javascript itself never was a problem. Problem is that it is often used where absolutely unnecessary. And browser's APIs brings many convenient tools for us alongside with the ways of doing malicious deeds as well (like fingerprinting, crypto-mining, viruses, etc.). Alas, this is one of the laws of life, everything could be used for evil.

There's one project I'm working on (now developing database). It's a service for file uploading, but files could be downloaded just one time. Yeah, I called it "One-Time File". It'll be available by link. A file would be kept for 7 days until it won't be downloaded, and size limit is 120MB. That'll be a really interesting experience, since I'll've to figure out how to be sure that file was fully downloaded before it can be deleted. :)

And speaking of my Neocities' site. Well, it looks like that I move out of there, but I definitely don't. That place would be my outpost with links to my website and services. :/

Update: Article on userdir in NGiNX rewrote to be an article with recipes for it.

Yep, I think whole article for such a small thing is too much, so now there is an article with recipes and tips for NGiNX.

Now there is info on how to implement userdir functionality and a note about how NGiNX works with HTTP headers.

Update: Laptop's RAM update.

Today I replaced old 1333MHz 2GB stick with a new 8GB 1600MHz. Now laptop has 10 gigs. I am to figure out what to fill it with. :)

Update: Tor and I2P access for this site and files.

I was thinking why not to make my place available through Tor and I2P. So after minor links fixing I made this place work like a charm through darkweb. Currently only main website and file share are available.

I2P site: t42fkp6zp5dfqywantq3zp427ig3q2onrmfv246tyaztpg4ckb5a.b32.i2p

Tor files: qf5e43nlhvnrutmikuvbdfj3cmtthokpbaxtkm6mjlslttzvtgm4fxid.onion

Updated on 2021-02-10.

Update: Article on userdir in NGiNX.

I thought why not to make an article on how to implement a userdir functionality in NGiNX. Maybe, someone will want to implement this on their server.

And, an article on e-mail server is hard to finish, because every time I sit on it I find flaws in e-mail server's configuration, LMAO.

Update: Recent updates.

I did a good work at this website. Especially I love that heading with a name of a site's section under the nav menu. And I finally made this section. I keep moving on. Next major step is to make a links page. My banners are ready, but no one would add me if I won't have a place for theirs banners. :)

Yeah, still no updates to Neocities' website. Now I'm working on a design of this place, and once I'll be satisfied that place will get an update. I work on it too, especially on an about page's content. Last not noticeable update was changing link of a guestbook to a JS-free new one.

Diary: Yesterday I was replacing a thermal compound on my PC.

Yesterday (19 Nov for me is it :)) I replaced a thermal compound on my PC, and, of course, it just couldn't be an ordinary procedure.

When I assembled everything back and turned on the PC it started swearing at me with 26 beeps and rebooting. I knew that it could be a problem with a RAM stick, but I didn't believe it. And I dissassembled it again and found that a few pins were bended and one missing (!). I fixed them all (around 5 didn't count) and was thinking what to do with that missing pin. I thought it was causing problem but searching led me to a pinout of the socket 1150 and that pin was doing something called VDDQ, and I found that it isn't a problem at all. There was a questionable pin SA_DQ57 (whatever it means), but I bended it a little and it's fine.

Oh, why I even took it from the socket? To clean it from an old thermal compound.

Well, I almost give in to a thought of taking a motherboard to a service and then I tried to put a RAM stick to the second slot and ... it worked! Shit, I don't know what happened. I've vacuumed the motherboard and was absolutely careful. No doubt I didn't break anything, yet, fuck. That vacuum cleaner isn't even powerful enough to suck in anything soldered.

But there's one breakage for sure. One of fixators of a cooler has broken. Shit. Now radiator isn't attached well to the CPU. Hopefully it led to the same temperatures as they was before at least. xD Don't want to whip up it with shit and bricks a zip tie, so I'd better get a new one. And I already ordered it, a little smaller, but supports socket AM4, so I will reuse it in the future, great.

What's next after all the stress I got? I'm going to replace a compound on my graphics card! Ahahahahaha! xDD

P.S.: I made a mindflow.html after I wrote this post.

Update: Okay, SA_DQ is a data bus for memory, so by bending that pin I lost first ram slot. Well, that's not because of cleaning at least.

Update: ScrapTheChan ver. 0.4.0 released.

Today I fixed most of noticed problems and released it.

Update: Yay, fuck JS!

I rewrote the guestbook without JS. Hooray!

Update: Dark theme is default from now.

Ok, in order to make flickering less painful I made dark theme default.

Update: Uuhh, this motherfucker still flickers...

Is there a cure for it ... ? At least, I managed to reduce this soykaf.

Update: Maintanance complete.

Thermal compound replaced, not much dust there was. It used to work at 62°C. Will see later. :) Now it runs on 49°C after 11 minutes. That only means I did everything right.

P.S.: Now it runs on 49-52°C. Nice.

Update: Maintanance.

It's time to replace a thermal compound in the laptop, so radio, FTP and Gitea would be down for a while today.

Update: Dark theme flickering fixed.

Now a check for a current theme is inside a DOMContentLoaded event listener and script itself is now in a <head>.

I also added an async attribute to a guestbook's script so page won't wait for guestbook posts to load and won't flicker light theme because of that.

And I remade 88x31 banner and made banner's dark counterparts as well. So you have what to choose from. :)

Update: Oh, PGP key wasn't accessible... Shite.

I just found that my PGP key isn't available. Now it is. I apologise to those who wanted it. According to logs this was a problem since the second half of september. :/

Update: New banners.

I made new banners. They're pretty much the same as was before. I fixed frames order and logo now takes all width.

Update: Looks like I'm back to work on this website.

And maybe I'll finally do something with my neocities' website. Maybe...

Update: Quick rundown on what happened since the december of the last year.

At first I moved off to domain in december 2019 that I was gonna change with, maybe, old if it'll be available for cheap because renewal prices are too high for me. But then I found a new registrar with dirt cheap renewal price and now I have domain I've payed for 2 years and if nothing change I'll renew it again and again. So, yes, I finally found my domain that I'm not gonna switch if only I will be forced to.nAnd mostly because of my lazyness I wasn't updating for fucking 3 months. That's also because I was trying to reduce its about page.nThen at July 13th my RPi suddenly stopped working. It didn't take much time to realise that the problem was a dying HDD. Hopefully, fsck fixed filesystem and I successfully moved all the stuff onto another drive I took from a laptop that was holding my data. And at July 16th a new SSD arrivedto replace old laptop's system drive that now holds all my stuff and I came back online.

Update: Banners.

Konnichiwa. I made banners for my websites of 88x31 and 240x60 sizes.
