Over the weekend I was at this years FrOSCon. I gave my usual intro level talk on IPv6 and the room was really full (not bad for an not so interesting topic). More than 100 people I guess. Time was to short. room was to small but I got some really good feedback. And maybe there are some more people starting to work with IPv6.
FrOSCon took place in St Augustin near Bonn. After leaving the train I instantly wanted to leave again. It’s bud ugly. Speakers hotel was okay for the price, but I has seen better days.
I was volunteered to help packing backs on the evening before the conference which led to some beers and some BBQ before the conference and some Koelsch (It’s what the locals sell as beer) at the hotel bar.
The conference was really good. I met several people I haven’t seen for quite some time and listened to some interesting talks. I’ll be there again next year. Maybe talking about IPv6 again.
I’ve given my usual presentation on IPv6 last Saturday @FrOSCon and there was one question nobody asked before:
“When will IPv6 be as secure as IPv4?”
IPv4? Secure? Did anyone bother to read the latest CISCO security advisory’s? From my point of view IPv6 is as secure as IPv4, maybe even more if you keep in mind that all problems with NAT are gone. Sure there will be bugs in the implementation but there are still bugs in some IPv4 implementations. Most of the problems are in applications using upper level protocols, especially HTTP apps written in PHP.
I added a new page “Pictures” (see top of the page) where I publish links to pictures I’ve take over the last years. More to come as I find time to sort old pictures and make new ones.
I don’t know if you have noticed the Schedule section on the side bar of this blog.It’s were I’ll publish all the public talks I going to give.
www.quux.de was out of date and I’m lazy and I have many other things to do) so I decided to just set a redirect form www.quux.de to blog.quux.de.
A couple of days ago some SPAM got trough advertising for www.example.com. Strange.
It’s done. More than 300,000-routes in the global BGP table. See http://bgp.potaroo.net/ for more details.
I just received an e-mail. Subject was rather long and contained everything you would normally find in the
body. The body just contained the signature and about 15 lines that I had to shoot myself if I’m not the intended recipient.
Is e-mail really so hard to use? Ore are most @*!look and *@!#$Notes users just stupid?
Do I have to mention that they asked me to send a doc file? Sorry I don’t earn enough to afford Windows and M$ Office. I’m using LaTeX.
Some time ago I wrote about the CFP for this years Linux-Kongress and OSDevCon.
Location and date of both events have changed. The conferences will take place in Dresden at the end of October (27-30). Dead line for the CFP has also been extended till end of August.
