The first post to this site to this site was just over 2 years ago. In it, I said which summer album releases I was excited for and that I was finishing freshman year. It’s a boring status update, but I’m allowed to do them once in a while. In that tradition,
- I finished my last exam today. I felt good leaving all 4 of my exams. I still have a big project to do before I’m done with the school year.
- OMGyeah! All new from
- Mates of State – May 20

- Tilly and the Wall – June 17

The web host I use for domnit.org contacted me today regarding a vulnerability that was exposed in Debian yesterday.
You are being contacted because an ssh key vulnerability in Debian-derived
Linux systems has been detected that may affect you.
NearlyFreeSpeech.NET does not run Debian Linux or any derived systems and is
not affected by this issue. However, we allow our members to load ssh keys
to allow passwordless access to edit their site content and you have availed
yourself of this feature.
Upon announcement of this issue, NearlyFreeSpeech.NET has obtained and run
software designed to identify potentially vulnerable keys. Your public key
was identified as potentially vulnerable. That doesn’t mean that it is,
only that it might be.
Therefore, if your ssh keys were generated on a Debian-derived Linux system,
please investigate this issue and determine whether you need to regenerate
your keys. More information is available here:
Please do not hesitate to contact us via our secure support facility if you
need us to replace your key, or if you need further assistance from us.

And now it’s all sorted out, not only with the SSH server I use to connect to NearlyFreeSpeech.Net, but also with my other SSH keys and servers.
This goes above and beyond what I expect from a hosting company—I can’t recommend them enough. They don’t run a referral program, I’m just linking because they’re great: NearlyFreeSpeech.net.
