Due to the importance and relevance of the HTTP +TSL protocol { a.k.a. HTTPS } in our days and in the future of the web, this yours truly has been practising and playing these days located in Europe, not with fire, but with Stunnel.

The stunnel program is designed to work as an SSL encryption wrapper between remote client and local ( inetd-startable ) or remote server.

Nearly a decade ago, circa October 2004, one of Stunnel's most common uses was encrypting communications between POP or IMAP mail servers and e-mail clients.

It could be tricky for permissions, but back onto those days Stunnel was useful even to encrypt other services like MySQL transactions to prevent wiretapping, as Mr. Barry O'Donovan pointed in Linux Gazzette.
This method can be used to encrypt any service where neither the server nor the client are SSL-enabled. Common examples include CVS, MySQL, etc.
The last update of Stunnel is dated

There is an Android, a desktop and other port downloadable ready for you to be installed. The source code is released under the GNU General Public License and, as such, is freely available for download and installation.


Ecofont saves toxic ink and toner, while maintaining readability. We believe it is important to save the precious natural resources of our planet. For ourselves and for future generations.
Developing the last project, here at the Segonquart Studio headquarters, I faced a problem:

There is the real need for the content to be printed, or at least the need to facilitate this possibility to the audience and visitors.

For this simple reason, there has to be decides what favours over the interests of the audience and community solution. 

After investigating and conducting a brief feasibility study, I found EcoFont

A solution belonging to typographic world enabling sustainable resource-saving and clear evidence of its usefulness. I calculate the savings our client may have by offering this tempered solution.

Then, I wrote a simple declaration pointing to an URI in the CSS print stylesheet which goes to the directory from where resource is served,

So one can print in paper the complete edition or some single articles from the server/website, in a sustainable way.

As you may have noticed -- looking at the clean code of the mentioned project, the choice was Ecofont. They believe -- like we do -- that it is important to save the precious natural resources of our planet for ourselves and future generations.

RFC 3987 Handling IRI is defined as a sequence of characters, not as a sequence of octets. This definition accommodates the fact that IRIs may be written on paper or read over the radio as well as stored or transmitted digitally.
Internationalized Resource Identifiers are a complement to URIs , and a new protocol element that is in common use for internationalization.

Language on the Web is a good point to get started.

Autumn 2014

Some brave news from your favourite new media & design studio { a.k.a Segonquart}.

As it has been said, as I've heard, the team are branding and cooking , and this yours truly is somehow involved on to that, an old cow.

They say it will be ready to serve chilled -- that is , it will be in beta -- around Autumn. 2104.

If you are hungry,  you can have a taste and see the flavour and how it will look like.

More than words

Mr. Jason Thibeault says in his article via The Pulse
...status post after status post about themselves and their kids... And I’d venture to guess that you are checking these status updates more often than you realise. Which is a clear sign that you need to check, just like you might need another cigarette, or another drink.
Well, why not, instead, keep maintaining social moods through a blog?

What I do most like about we-blogging is its un-addictiveness. Weblogs are a non-addictive process of communication behaviour expressed in the formal way of doing things by example.

Communication is not only inherent to our human nature, it also conforms itself our daily activities. We are born into language. A dialect for each buying, each talking, each waving, each liking or even each disliking.

A weblog is a collection of thinks, or remarks, or bookmaklets, or guess whatever is a collection of personal content or of -- using marketing terms -- interests.

Weblogs face the two aspects of interaction and communication: the self and the social.

And face those aspects in a much wider, discrete and human way than focusing as a simple but effective activity stream of generated content. A weblog reflects those interests an editor/publisher/narrator/photographer/marketer wants to express by creating content and publishing it to the web.

You interact with weblogs ( We-blog, I-blog, She-blogs ) in quite different and interesting moods, enhancing the way communication flows and the data interacts. Not only as a reader. You can subscribe to them, or you might get involved with another them, in a elegant manner.

A weblog is more than a simple set or collection of words subtly curated and carefully published by its editor. Imagine: You can even alter the chronological fact tied behind them.

A weblog is not only social. Is much more than a simple social thing.

The Coolest Protocol Ever

  • Email was a newsfeed
  • Email was the primary means of direct social communication on the Internet. 
  • Email was a digital package-delivery service
  • Email was the primary mode of networked work communication
Alexis C. Madrigal bangs on the door with a stirring and yet exciting article about the Email, also known as the SMTP Internet protocol. The best tool, ever.
Email is a refugee from the open, interoperable, less-controlled "web we lost." It's an exciting landscape of freedom amidst the walled gardens of social networking and messaging services.
Being a younger-than-millenial does not equals to be stupid neither a fool. Your personal data belongs to you. And email fits well your need for proprietorship. If any.

Relax, have a read to this article, use your email, and stay well.


I have been kindly invited by  Jason, Karina and Sinead - The Blog Action Day Team, to spread Malala day, so you are too.

Blog Action Day was founded by Collis & Cyan Ta’eed in 2007. With the support of their team at Envato in Australia, as well as numerous volunteers, they recruited thousands of bloggers to blog about the issue of Environment on October 15, 2007 – making the first Blog Action Day an immediate and quite unexpected success.

Your choice.
