Finally a use for ao.tc

1 bought a short domain some time ago, it is ao.tc. I had some issues trying to work out where it was to fit in with what I already have running, since ec.je is now here on LiveJournal, and cw.nf is the hosting domain.

I've been recently pulling apart what is allocated to my business side of MMN and what is my personal hobby side. In the move, I recovered my long time email address, but lost the website to the business side (equally my ec.je email address is full on business now).

I then took the BBS away from being on the business, so this is back to being a personal venture. Doing that I managed to put in to use another domain, mmn.cx, that should have been a business project but never was. So that part all fit in.

But I could never fully place ao.tc, until today. I've made it in to a portal site, with my personal sites and such in there. It makes sense, I have a lot of little side projects all over the place.with their own domains, like retrowa.re (ao.tc/retroware) for example.

I'm trying to also drop my data foot print in bigger companies, such as Creepy Googles, so it'll be the place I'll pop my photo hosting site too. On a side note, my personal email is now self hosted, encrypted and self managed.

I've also brought back the old MMN design that was lost in the business site changes, it's kind of like having an old friend back.

Back to the good old days

So I made a strange post a couple days ago, if you haven't guessed it
was a test :D

I have come back to my hobby BBS, getting it all back and running
online. It's now available at www.mmn.cx.

With this I have moved my emails and such back here, I've also created a
way I can update this journal via the system. It's rather nice being
able to do things text only again. With too many clients and crappy
social networks, it was a bit of a moment to disengage them.

Now the interface is very much working on any platform, it's all ANSI,
text works everywhere with out much problem.

I'm quite proud of the technicalities behind getting this system back
online, I don't have an appropriate PC at home that I can use. So until
I manage to buy one, make sure it all runs smoothly and actually have a
place I can put it in my appartment, the BBS is using the Google Cloud.

Google in their wisdom decided that they don't want email going out port
25, so I've also learned how to create an internal network on their
platform and set up a basic Postfix server to throw the emails off their
network and on to a SMTP relay service.

I'm not kidding when I say that I was up until 5h in the morning trying
to work all this out without going fully nuts.

But it works now and I've now got half the skills to set up my own mail
server to start dishing out emails (currently stuck with OpenDKIM not
signing).

I emailed pretty much everybody with my email address, although my
original domain mmn.on.ca is now in the hands of all my business side of
things (web hosting, domains, etc) I have my email address there
forwarding to my BBS email address.

Just don't be surprised if you see a reply from an @mmn.cx email
address.

It's also worth noting that since no agreement between me and mmn.ab.ca
could have ever been a thing, it's not possible to register mmn.ca at
all. So when mmn.cx happened to be in my portfolio of over registering,
it seemed like a good compromise.

Picardi Slang

On my road trip series, I have taken the opportunity to bring out the driving licence and get behind the left hand wheel, and explore the France.


It started with an accidental trip down to Orléans, thanks to a missing recharge card for the Nissan LEAF I rented, and has begun to form an actual plan to see how far and what we can reasonably see in an Electric car. Mainly because the rental price is a lot cheaper, but you know, reasons or something.


This time around we went for Compiègne, 77km away from Paris and frought with a series of speed traps, that even Satan himself might feel are a bit unfair*.


The area is quite nice, small little town vibe and of course Jeanne D'Arc was there too, because she seems to have gone everywhere.


Our plan was to walk around, see somethings and have a picnic in the large forest behind the Palais de Compiègne, the weather was kind of OK, somewhat opressive humidity but in the end it cleared for the sun. Considering the outlook from Météo France was full on monsoon, I think it certainly could have been worse.


During our pre picnic walkaround, because our two hours of free parking** was going to expire and there was no way in hell I'd miss out on free parking by paying for it, we saw some of the google recommendations of what to do in this tiny place. Spoiler : not a lot.


After the car was paid up and we went off to the palais, it was a very beautiful experience, sure could have got a nice park in Paris, but it was just a bit different. And the guys, well we played Uno and they enjoyed all the

they could.

Yeah I got busted in an area that was totally not sign posted.

It turns out that since there were no police municipale in the area, everywhere was free parking for the day. So in the end, we were the only idiots to pay. 

Also in case you missed the reference, here it is https://youtu.be/a1Q_E3jEVEQ.

Email Changes

Because I started MMN as a hobby, then started to move in to a business context slowly over the years, it's been hard to seperate my personal things from work things, and this is certainly obvious in my email inbox.


Honestly, I'm starting to lose track of my own things between the automatic notifications from all the systems, business emails, personal emails and everything else.


So I'm starting the process of removing domains from the business G Suite account on to a personal email server.


And this means all the domains I've got personally, which are shockingly a lot, are now in to this account.


Over this week, I'll be sending out an email to people I keep in touch with my personal address and of course start the labourious task of moving everything out one by one.


If you want to email me in the interim, it's now via this form.

I was going to write something

but then I forgot, so I wrote this to justify staring at the screen since forever.

Orléans

But while we're all here, have a look at the photos from the Jeanne d'Arc festival in Orléans that we came across by chance.
