I don't like hardware upgrades

Recently I decided to upgrade my workstation's Ryzen 1800X to a newer Ryzen 3700X. After I replaced the CPU it didn't POST as I forgot to flash my 3+ year old bios before hand. Thankfully after putting the old cpu back in, flashing it and putting the new cpu back in it POSTs again.

god fucking damnit

I hate hardware upgrades so god damn much.

Death by Dangerous By Design Defaults, Dumb DoH Degrades DNS's Dignity.

Firefox recently introduced DNS over HTTPS in firefox for "securing" application dns. I am personally of the opinion that applications should NOT attempt to work around a broken system resolver as this is a system issue that is out of scope of the application. But I digress. While DoH is a security upgrade in theory and in practice (most of the time) vs normal DNS, firefox's implementation contains a fatal flaw in the default settings that make it effectively off unless you explicitly turn it on.

By default DoH in firefox is "oppurtunistic". Specifically if your upstream DNS makes use-application-dns.net eplicitly not resolve firefox turns DoH off. Yes DNS is rather insecure and your ISP can do whatever it wants and that's kind of the problem. Firefox is depending on your system's DNS being secure to ... uh... secure appliation level dns in Firefox. See the problem yet? The real …

Life Update Blog June 2020

Today I get my airconditioner from amazon prime delivered, allegedly. It's june, it's humid and my window fan isn't cutting it. Nothing much changes in Jeff land yet the world is going insane at the moment. Alas politics is not the topic of this blog post.

The topic is... daily life.

It's saturday morning and I am doing bug triage on github as if it was a weekday. The work week has been going for the past 2 years or so as I am a workaholic and use work as an escape from my real life problems. I am still a shitty person in person and online. I don't think I ever grew up. Sometimes I wonder what I am doing, maybe this is an early mid life crisis. One thing for sure is that I need a non computer related hobby (yea, but like, can your non computer related …

Lokinet with DNSCrypt-Proxy

Intro

This is a quick intro with how to use lokinet with dnscrypt-proxy on ubuntu/debian based distros to secure your dns queries from spying eyes, as requested by someone on an XMPP muc.

Setup

You want to first install dnscrypt-proxy

# apt update
# apt install dnscrypt-proxy

Next install lokinet see this blog post on how to do that.

Configuration

By default your system will want to use dnscrypt-proxy as system resolver, this is fine as you can always forward dns for .loki and .snode to lokinet.

In /etc/dnscrypt-proxy/dnscrypt-proxy.toml you want to add an option to provide a fowarding file:

forwarding_rules = '/etc/dnscrypt-proxy/forwarding-rules.txt'

In a new file at /etc/dnscrypt-proxy/forwarding-rules.txt'put the following forwarding rules:

loki 127.3.2.1
snode 127.3.2.1
0.10.in-addr.arpa 127.3.2.1

The first rule says to forward the .loki gtld to …
