We're back

After a rather nasty episode with a DDoS attack and a lot of trouble with my webhosting-provider, my site is finally back.

In other news, I've disabled comments on the site, since I currently don't have the time to deal with all the spam that's coming in.

The fate of man

I've been watching the blogosphere a lot these last six months, and I've seen some rather disturbing things that have more than confirmed my suspicions of the contemporary political systems.

Most of the videos I've seen comes from America. I think the people over there are simultaneously worse and better off than the people in Denmark, though it is hard to evaluate.

Where there is no vision, the people perish

I've taken an interest in Danish politics, and a thing that really bothers me, is the apparent lack of vision in all Danish politicians.

When I say apparent, it is with the realisation that politicians are (probably) human somewhere beneath the carefully groomed image of a good, honest and just person. And I'd like to think that most people have visions. Or at least a vision. A craving deep down to accomplish or attain something. If only a weak idea of how one wants his future to be. Dreaming of going to Hawaii with someone special or climbing Mt. Everest.

The perhaps greatest curse of this world is how everything decays. Wear and tear, aging. Everything withers, fades, falls apart and corrupts. The only thing humans create that doesn't require maintenance is thoughts, ideas. If it can be written down, or digitised and thus copied, it has a chance of escaping the jaws of time.


Awake at dawn

I don't remember when I last was up this early. It's a long time ago, anyways. I've been up since 3:30 this morning, so I'm feeling quite dizzy.

Right now, I'm working on setting up a new file server for the office. I'm going to deploy with Gentoo and SELinux. It's my first time with SELinux, so this is going to be interesting. I hope it works out.


A new home - and where I didn't want to go today...

So, we've finally moved into our new house in Gentofte (an up-scale suburb of Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark). We were finally done moving stuff around at 2 in the morning. Then I got a few hours of much needed sleep, whereafter I had to get up to return the van we rented to move all our stuff in. Then off to work. Work was as it usually is. Chalenging, demanding, rewarding. Good.
