In case you maintain a mail server or plan to do so in the future, PLEASE READ THIS.

There's an organization by the name of "UCEPROTECT", which blacklists ASNs willy-nilly. If you end up on their blacklist, DO NOT PAY THEM.

This organization is run by a single person. And they are running a money extortion scheme. Why am I saying this? Simple. They only way to get unblocked is to pay up. No other reputable DNS blocklist does this.

Furthermore, they engage in abusive behaviour, and the single person behind this organization is misogynistic (proof: web.archive.org/web/2021030218).

my DNS services over HTTPS and TLS 

And now, my most recent addition to the neverending series of "services I host on a single server because why not": kescherDNS.

No, not the unencrypted one at port 53. I would not like to be part of DNS amplification attacks, thank you very much.

Hostnames:
- dns.kescher.at

IPs:
- any IP returned by a DNS lookup for dns.kescher.at

DNS-over-HTTPS:
Located at dns.kescher.at:443/dns-query (as standrdized). You can actually use this in Firefox as well, by enabling DoH in network settings and putting "dns.kescher.at/dns-query" into the field for a custom server.

DNS-over-TLS:
Located at <hostname>:853. You can use this on Android 9 onwards, using the "Private DNS" feature (just enter dns.kescher.at into the text field).

In case you are still looking for a homeserver to try out Matrix with: matrix.kescher.at currently has open registrations (you can also try using a web client if you don't want to install a client for now)

Uh I just got DMed by the COO of Tumblr asking about hiring contractors to make us fully #indieweb compliant, and possibly even #fediverse integration. Anyone out there looking for work?

Disability and doctors (-) 

I understand why doctors get confused by disabilities that are dynamic as hell on symptoms, needs, energy levels... I am confused too, every day.

I just wished they could just say that, instead on throwing over us disbelief and ableism. There's a lot of research that needs to be done and it isn't our fault

I see the CDC and the WHO are back on their homophobic bullshit.

They have a vaccine. If there is a localized demographic where there is an outbreak you work on containment with that group. Or do het people just never have sex or even make "skin to skin" contact?

you ever see something, want to boost it but you check the image for an image description and it has none?

mastodon dev 

Yep, I'm correct. Pull request 18463, the one that is accelerating search deployment, introduced this regression. Now I'm not sure whether this would happen on vanilla Mastodon or if this is related to glitch-soc. Will open an issue at the glitch-soc repo later though

mastodon dev 

Well, seems like Mastodon Pull Request 18463 broke search on this instance. Reverted it, slowly importing the search index again. If I'm wrong, then the cause could be Mastodon Pull Request 18451.

Error log of tootctl search deploy available at at this link.

Security PSA, read if you use Rainloop or mail.kescher.at 

Attention all users of my mail server: Rainloop at mail.kescher.at is currently disabled until a stored XSS vuln is patched.

Not a lot of people use my service, but be warned nonetheless, especially if you use Rainloop elsewhere.

Security PSA, read if you use Rainloop 

Still using RainLoop as your web mail client? RainLoop is abandoned. Use SnappyMail, an updated and active fork instead.
