Não conhecia estes Sixteen Horsepower, mas esta cover é obrigatória. E por falar em Joy Division, dizem-me que o o novo filme sobre Ian Curtis, Control, acabadinho de estrear por Cannes, está muito bom. Esperemos que não demore muito a chegar cá ou vou ter que me virar para os backups distribuidos.
Para todos os fãs do Theremin (provavelmente o instrumento electrónico mais estranho do mundo pois toca-se com as mãos sem tocar em nada) :
E esta é absolutamente fantástica: Carolina Eyck, SPELLBOUND Concerto (theremin & orchestera), conductor: Tilo Schmalenberg, Philharmonie Berlin June 28, 2002
Prometo a mim mesmo mas nunca cumpro. Só ler um novo livro quando se acaba o outro. Até estar a meio de um, fechá-lo, colocar o marcador e no outro dia ter outro por cima, na mesita do costume e prometer a mim mesmo que…
É tão recorrente que até enfada. Entrar numa livraria e perceber que nunca haverá tempo para ler todos os livros do mundo. Mesmo os que não interessam.
In case you didn’t noticed, my personal domain, marques.cx disappeared for the last 2 days. It all started with a friend messaging me that it could not reach his website and another hosted for a non-profit association on my server. I could not figured it what it was because the dns cache of my isp would still answer me the correct ip address of the sites and the a record for my primary nameserver. And yes, all of my domains were registered on a primary nameserver belonging to a ghost domain. Finally I discovered that none of the nameservers of .CX TLD were giving any replies whatsoever for the NS records of marques.cx. Did a whois query, bingo, no renewal, no domain, it was expired. Oh, the horror. The shock. And I didn’t received any alert or information for the renewal. Then, I thought, well, the secondary nameserver will answer queries for my domains until ns.marques is back from dead. Yeah, right. For making things worse, the secondary nameserver I was using had an old glue record entry on the registrar, a very strange problem and guess what, the domain ttl’s were expiring and no nameserver was there to answer for it. I rely heavily on my marques.cx domain, including customer mails, Paypal, mailing lists, blogs, everything. It was all gone. So I went to COCCA website, the registrar of .CX domain and sent several desperate e-mails asking for help and how to renew my domain. But I had no replies, nothing. One day passed and I decided to stay up late and make a phone call to the COCCA offices on the tiny Christmas Island. Talked to a lady with a funny asian-australian accent who could not understand what was my problem and she gave me the phone number of Garth Miller himself, the man in charge of .CX COCCA Registrar. So I phone Garth, thinking in all this amazing situation and for my relief, he answered my call, asked me to send an e-mail with the domain details and in 15 minutes he re-activated my domain and I was back in business. So, thank you Garth Miller, you saved my day. But beware of domain registrars in exotic places. You have been warned.

Suppose you have a qmailadmin box with vpopmail installed. Suppose that you just want to enable spamassassin for certain mailboxes and the spamd is a remote service cluster. I’m lazy, you’re lazy. We both know that hacking dot-qmail files in virtual mailboxes from vpopmail is a no go (can be overwritten by qmailadmin for aliasing, forwarding, etc). But there’s a way of doing it, KISS style. So, for example, if you want to enable spamassassin for [email protected] and if your vpopmail path is on /opt/vpopmail just create a .qmail-user file in /opt/vpopmail/domains/domain.tld with:
| spamc -d spamd-server.blabah.com | /opt/vpopmail/bin/vdelivermail '' $HOME/$EXT
And voilá. Every mail delivered to [email protected] will pass spamc and the result is piped to the user Maildir with vdelivermail.
