More .bashrc improvements

I need to see long path and host name. And not to lose command line space at the same time:

BOLD="\[$($TTY  && /usr/bin/tput bold)\]"
COLOR_BLACK="\[$($TTY  && /usr/bin/tput setaf 0)\]"
COLOR_RED="\[$($TTY  && /usr/bin/tput setaf 1)\]"

Opera Neon

Funny browser: mouse multitouch, gestures, extensions, settings import, vpn, turbo, profile login – that’s all does not work. No Linux version. But tab management is really neat!

Strange things: there are 3 search engines pre-configured: google, Yandes and mail.ru. I am not located in the Russia though!

Google group calendars in Evolution Mail

If your organization uses Google Apps as mail service but you are using Evolution, there is no evident way to view and edit shared group calendars until recent versions. To add group calendar you need:

  1. go to calendar settings on web
  2. Calendar Address: -> ID (somenting like example.com_1d32345331343234213832@resource.calendar.google.com)
  3. Evolution -> New Calendar -> Google
  4. User name -> this ID
  5. Auth with usual name-pass or other means you use (Kerberos, OTP) in the window appear.
  6. Allow Evolution to use the Google’s resources.

DKIM=temperror

Recently I have checked my messages headers of the mail that comes from the andreybondarenko.com MX and found that Google shows that my DKIM signature is invalid:

Authentication-Results: mx.google.com; dkim=temperror (no key for
 signature) header.i=@andreybondarenko.com;

In the spam score section:

DKIM_SIGNED,T_DKIM_INVALID

However the header itself is present:

DKIM-Filter: OpenDKIM Filter v2.10.3 andreybondrenko.com CE25780BAC
DKIM-Signature: v=1; a=rsa-sha256; c=relaxed/relaxed;
        d=andreybondarenko.com; s=default; t=1483634085;
        bh=w00tuUhwty0/5n/YHiopiY3PpnqKT5BLK9l6TkDNUUk=;
        h=Subject:From:Reply-To:To:Date:From;
        b=J5qB5RF9lrOho1wBpLyLi5a6CwIHZK1sugCr2wpwnPKwEg76RFv2/y8xaiwquqftX

         eqnIqWxhVTVdjRqrqzNPn0wuBbGJgO2bwmFcVsy8=

I have found that it’s quite common configuration error of the OpenDKIM, the selector you choose to store key can be chosen randomly, but the TXT record should match /etc/opendkim.conf. In my case:

##  Defines the name of the selector to be used when signing messages.
Selector   default

But the DNS record:

[user@andreybondarenko ~]$ dig TXT mail._domainkey.andreybondarenko.com

;; ANSWER SECTION:
mail._domainkey.andreybondarenko.com. 1800 IN TXT "v=DKIM1\; k=rsa\; p=MIGfMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4GNADCBiQKBgQCdGRWtWPPZVIg0fy7Pr0+rsBsoL6Imt1GBE/QRd3X5Izv1iAJFUsOtea

eIBf1VjmajSwe3wIDAQAB"

Changing ‘Selector’ to ‘mail’ and restating opendkim (it’s faster then change DNS):

Authentication-Results: mx.google.com; dkim=pass
 header.i=@andreybondarenko.com;

Let’s encrypt cert updates

Let’s encrypt is wonderful, but certificate are getting expired every 3 months. Since it’s a first time I need to renew them, I have done it manually. The tool authenticates you (by default) with special file created in the .well-know/acme-challenge directory of the root, so the blog engine should not interfere or rewrite anything and should not return it’s own 404 page. Historically my nginx.conf has lots of existing redirects and rules, I am too lazy to correct and simplify it, so simple

localtion ~ .well-known {
        allow all;
    }

does not work. And I am too lazy to figure out why it is so (bad for me). So the most simple way to renew certs for me is to switch to minimal config. Putting it here for the future reference.

Moving iTunes Account to the other contry

If you are changing the country you may need to change the location of your online services as well. May be if you are moving from US to EU it’s not that important, but if you are moving from Russia to EU keeping old setting would be painful. First, payment can be only done from Russian card. Second, by Russian regulations “Russian” users’ data must be located in Russia. It’s far. And I don’t like the idea of keeping my data there.

Switching the region in the iTunes is not that easy. You need pre-requisites:

  1. You need to have address and the payment card that is issued in the same country.
  2. You need to cancel all your subscriptions. And that’s not that easy. “iTunes Music” had per-month payment basis. But “iTunes Match” is purchased for one entire year and you cannot terminate it. That made me wait 5 months!
  3. “iCloud Storage”, however, may be active.

Than you need to go to the account settings, change the store, add new credit card, re-login on all devices. Applications on the phone are working without problems (seems like this, though I didn’t have any update yet, but it’s x-mas). But not the music! You need to re-enable Match and Music subscriptions and reload all music back to the cloud. A lot of duplicated may appear in process, be prepared for that.
