I have put together a little entertainment on by running a little text based email for myself.

It’s not open to the outside world (except, obviously, incoming and outgoing email). I’m using SynchroNet and MXGuarddog – with spam blacklist.

#Joy #TextOnly fix

There has been an issue with on the status site reporting back as DOWN, when actually it seems to be a single issue on IPv6 from Cloudflare not resolving.

I’ve modified the address it’s calling to bypass cloudflare, which should fix the errors and accurately display the site’s uptime.

Plan of Action

I’ve somewhat neglected some things recently, being out for the count. But I’ve still got to work in,, and a couple other domains.

Another thing I’ve got to start working on is, somehow managed to get it on a domain backorder and I want to use it for good. I don’t know where to start here, I’m happy to take suggestions.

Otherwise, a couple of minor updates to have been done and that’s it. moved

I’ve got around to moving the domain over to and because of the configuration, andvx.sgmoved over. has also been moved across to a couple days ago, and the redirect is going swimmingly.

Domain Security

In the spirit of Spring Cleaning and the shut-in effect of the quarantine kicking in hard, I decided to do a few things.

It started off with cleaning out the air conditioner (spoiler : never do this) and it ended with a plan on securing up my domains.

Having had since the late 90s, spammers do try and forge the domain. Granted since 2018 I’ve had the DMARC policy set to quarantine (lol) and it seemed to have helped from seeing the DMARC reports but with all this COVID-19 SPAM I decided to do my part to prevent bullshit from propagating (and no, no matter what Karen from YouTube says, 5G does not propagate or cause COVID-19.)

I have my next set of core domains to be set to the reject policy very soon.

Right now has a pretty good score on deliverability on at 87% (not having IPv6 mail servers does kick you down a bit, and ProtonMail hasn’t yet phased out some of the older TLS stock.

Previously I wasn’t able to have DNSSEC with my previous and long time registrar so I had to move it to a new one not long ago so I could implement that. I’ve also got to reimplement HSTS, but that’s a job for another day.
