Great ipv6 news from austrian mobile networks

Great ipv6 news from austrian mobile networks

Allmost all mobile providers in Austria implemented ipv6 protocol for 3G/4G/5G mobile net. 
When running ifconfig inside an android terminal, you can see, if ipv6 is already enabled at your device.

I tried to ping6 my little amazon server and ping6 over icmp succeeded. 

When pinging6 from android, I started a tcpdump on my little amazon server in Oregon, to see if packets are coming well through.
Then, I tried to ping6 in the opposite direction and was so delighted. that the icmp6 ping6 from amazon subnet in Oregon passed without routing or netfilter blocking problems to my android device.

I was courious, if a service broker from the internet could reach a server socket on my android, so I installed Simple HTTP Server:

I tested my local android device http server successfully by using curl, wget, lynx and a test once from Tor Onion Router.
You can use of course another http fs server, like:


Draft: Gender, sex, family and (absence of) birth of children might be strong implicit forces on a society

Draft (will become in 1 week an article)

Preamble gender, sex, family issue appeared

Gender studies with left spin

In Austria as well as in some other parts of the western world, gender theme were occupied by political left wing people and gender studies became to a only female emanzipational propaganda and transgender, lesbian, gay, bisexual tolerance issue, without knowledge what's really inside the box of the Pandora.

Right wing and conservative people became angry about that in the past and claimed, that the christian, classic, muslim (traditionl) family values and classic marriage became thereby underminded.
I for my part think, that this argument from the right wing contained a lot of bullshit and hate against minority groups, because LGTB people are very rarley and still a little minority in society and never ever have that huge impact (like the jews never had a huge implact at Weimar Republic in germany).
Well some people pour oil in the fire of anger in social discussion and outed a lot of provocating hate speach, even when they were rich and married. [...]
But, there is a mostley invisible but existing pressure on right conservative traditional people, that they feel and realize, that they suddenly have less chances to get into a realationship or found a family and claim, that's only the result of medial focus on leftist gender issue and the absence of traditional values.
Some traditional thinking people had surley a lot of frustration, because of fewer opportunities for relationships and family founding (either real or imaginary).
On change from elected left governments (like US Democrats, Kemalists, Social Democrats) to right conservative elected governements (Donald Trump GOP, people's parties in Europe), many gender studies, univeristies were closed or not more budgeted well in some parts of the western world.

I for me part think, that dividing the topic of gender, sex, familiy and into 2 parts (academic gender studies & traditional religion or folk wisdom) was an essential huge mistake.
I would suggest a field of study that deals with interpersonal relationships in general, sexual relationships, marriage and family in general and that's at least popular academic.
Interpersonal relationships between men and women and too few child births often have much more implications for the economy, society, politics and the future than previously assumed, but not appear clearly and mostley are marked taboo.
e.g. the birth of too few Chinese girls meaned in the past that young Chinese men often had to find a marriageable woman in the near abroad with some expenditure & costs of money.

Restrictions on both might be the reason of social pressure, suffer and anger

I think, that for many classic traditional people founding a family became more complicated as it was in the past and admitting to an alternative sexuality too, but that it has nothing at all to do with the oposite society spectrum. Entering in a relationship and human reproduction became for some parts of western society more difficult.

Different point of views and models of needs of human individuals and society

Many models of human needs and society needs came out from a specific point of view and also might have been statistically evidence based only at their epoche (>90% positive of sample base/range; sample quantity 0.5% - 2.5% of society).

Maslow's hierarchy (case study)

I'm sure, that the Maslow pyramid of needs matches for most human societies at the level 1 - 4 (physiological, safety, love and social and esteem) pretty sure for allmost all members of society [...]
Hierarchy of needs Abraham Maslow

Abraham Maslow

A claimed needs for succeeding model by me

Attention, I draw today a model of needs for succeeding out of my mind, but it's common sense and generally opinion of the zeitgeist of many teachers and chamber people between 1980 - 2010 in Europe.
Everybody would claim that model immediately as true or matching, even if it has no statistical evidence at all, neither only a little sample interview based questioning range.
(Remind that, agreeeing to a model and matching inside the model might be two different things, I can strongly agree to a model rationally, but I might not match inside the model).

The old conservative rule "You must have first a good payed job" ⟹ "then found a family" often became ironic in our dynamically changing times.
  • [IronyOn]
  • People with good jobs don't have any time to find opportunities to get to together with nice young man / woman, because they mostley work a lot. (only coming together inside the company is possible, but's that's not estimated / wished by compliance or share holder interest).
  • Jobless people have a lot of time, which is never spended 100% to find a new job. So they have possibilities to go out and meet someone, but very conservative relatives (mum & dad) or close friends don't like it and often make strong opinion campaign against coming together with unemployed people.
  • Coming together at highscool, collegue or university might be chance, but conservative relatives (mum & dad) or close friends claimed a new rule before marriage: "Better at the time, when both work", so after finding a job after education, she lives in Chicago and he in Seattle Washington and then it's over with family founding.
  • There are even many more traps in some radical modern marriage codices, like 
    "When he becomes unemployed for one year" ⟹ "then divorce".
    Most partners know, if the loved person is strongly affected to cancel culture or it's only for some time difficult to get a new jobs and then he/she/it restarts.
    There might be also the opposite rule at some very radical following directive "thou must serve more the family then the boss, who pays you big fat money & ice-cream" communities:
    "When he works too much and don't have any time for you during one year"
    ⟹ "then divorce"

ATX and austrian stock market traded companies

#ATX (Austrian Traded Index) never ever reached high of 2008 again.

#Raiffeisen International [ ] seems to be a sitting duck, because of sanctions against Russia, but I'm sure that they could swap the Russian risk against something special. 

Some #ATX companies like #Andritz [ ], #OMV [ ], #Verbund [ ] seems to be very defiant against that trend.

CA IMMO [ ] was quiet profitable so far.

#Dynatrace [ ] a newcomer was founded in Austria and is now traded in #NASDAQ
Find all Dynatrace locations in Austria at wko companies directory: 

#VoestAlpine [ ] steel production and technology company will will likely lose share of world wide steel production, because raw iron supply chains are quiet long and expensive for VOEST location Linz:

Voest Alpine supply chains are A1 & OEBB



Commercial business livestyle, NPO and the few community based lifestyle, that we ignore

Common images in western societies from social and economic point of view:

Family (classic)

classic family based

At least one or both parents work most of the year and gain income for family. Family might get money from the state for the children to help getting them educated in public or private school and later an education to get a paid job in our economy.

Pair of adults (might be even gay or lesbian)

A pair in a kind of love or sexual relation lives together, because they cannot reproduce or don't want to have children. Normally both work (maybe not fulltime) and earn money.

Single adult (might be divorced father)

A single person lives alone, earns money.

Forgotten community based live styles

When you really open your eyes, you will find a lot of community based live styles, that were mostley not declared as community, but practically have the tendency / bias to live together as a community, were the priority to earn money is quiet low.
Some examples:
  1. extended family (were some of the members receive money in form of social benefits or unemployment insucrance from state, insucrances or relatives, could be clan based)
  2. spiritual or far left community (e.g. new age group, marxists, trotskyists, like-minded community)
  3. [Please enter you own expiriences here]
Unfortunately, the original form of old farmer families or kibbutz is really outdated.

Misunderstandings and conflicts concerning community based live forms

  • It is a mistake to assume that all community based lifestyles are voluntary, often it is economic pressure that leads to such living conditions.
  • But it is also wrong that nobody wants to live like this and people who live like this need education upgrades or training positions to enter jobs. 
  • Since community-based forms of life are mostly sustained by money that is not entirely self-earned, there is often the argument that they take it away from the really old and weak or disabled because it is mostly spent by the state.
  • Community based persons never understand the importance that somebody is stressed and races to an urgent meeting with an important wealth customer.
  • On the other hand, working people with functioning business models do not understand the obligations of community-based individuals, who often donate odd amounts of time to unnecessary inefficient rituals within the community.
  • Community based lifestyles are often viewed as precariously archaic or uncivilized, although the rules or code in such communities are often very complex, but often inhibit individuals from their full economic capacity or individual self-expression.
In my opinion we should sharpen our awareness and not a standard protocol or purely economic imperative when encountering these rare but nonetheless existing lifestyles.

Why I wrote this article:
Tonight my mind was clear and I saw, that some people don't want to be driven from an economic imperative and like more a community based life style. In Austria such people don't receive much money from the state, but often were discrimented or motivated to follow an economic working life model.


Fact checking: What come from pirate party and socialist section8 and what from communists?

 In the years 2011 - 2014 I was an more left as (but still) liberal activst participating at serveral discussions in the free internet in different forums or social media. 

From my point of view, many ideas that were produced together in common with stakeholders from pirate party and section8, had the most politically and avangardistic value and also flowed partially into the party program of other parties (e.g. Neos, SPÖ, even partly Greens, ÖVP, FPÖ).

I will list here the most impactfully issues:

I. Transparency 

I.1. Transparency (freedom of information) Act

In Austria and Bavaria a law called Amtsgeheimnis exists, that protects any and implicitly all communications concerning any official task or issue in state sector between employes of the state as strong classified. (like police officers, judges, social and work service, politicans, public health service, ...). Private not state tasks or issues concerning smalltalk conversation is certainly not affected by that law. All that communication is forever protected, even for old statesmen, when leaving state service at 70 years, its strictly forbidden to tell anything under to relatives, family or journalists. The penalization
and punishment even for such old men is very hard and consistent. There is no such opening step like in US, where even GOD (the CIA) opens some classified files after 40 - 60 years. Because of that and keeping secret citizens data (like  medical data files, pensions and doctor payments, ..) a transparency act was claimed in Februar 2013. Many personal data are in between visible for citizen by digital goverment platforms, other not so strictly single person concerning cases, are furthermore deep secretly.
One of the big problems, that still exist, is that "Amtsgeheimnis" even  beats the EU public contracts tendering law and official gouvernemental state tenders and Privatization / sale of public goods!

Vor 10 Tagen haben Sektion8 & Piratenpartei die Petition zum Transparenzgesetz veröffentlicht:

Sektion 8 wollte doch Akkzente setzen und nicht nur reagieren.
In dem Fall ist das sehr gut gelungen.
Gratulation, bei so einer wichtigen Sache.

Falsche Annahme bzgl. Target-2 Salden bisher

Lieber Leserinnen und Leser,

sicher kennen manche von Ihnen die Panik, die Prof. Dr. Hans-Werner Sinn so gerne verbreotet über die Fallen der Target-2 Salden. Es ist allerdiings weniger beunruhigend als ich bisher annahm oder als manche befürchteten. Deutschland stellt keine Blanko-Schecks aus, denn wenn BMW (Bayrische Motorenwerke) an einen Vertragshändler in Italien 321 #BMW liefern, dann wird der Konzern nicht einen ungedeckte Blankoscheck an die Bayrische Motorenwerke überweisen, sondern wohl eine Sofortüberweisung oder eine gedeckte Ratenzahlung. Positice Target-2 Salden bedeuten einfach nur, dass andere Staaten mehr Geld nach Deutschland überwiesen haben als umgekehrt und negative T2 Salden bedeuten, dass die Staaten weniger Geld von Deutschland summe summarum an Transaktionen im Euroraum überwiesen bekamen als umgekehrt. Wenn Italiener z.B. ein Konto bei der Deutschen Bank haben und sie sparen dort oder haben dort ihr Geschäftskonto und die Firma operiert stehts in positiven schwarzen Zahlen, dann steigt die T2 Balance zu Gunsten Deutschlands auch. Es ist auf keinen Fall so, dass Deutschland ungedeckte Schecks an Italien ausstellt, es sei denn Italien würde aus dem € austreten. Aber auch dann wäre das keine Katastrophe, denn IT würde auf die Lira wechseln und es würde zuerst ein 1:1 Wechselkurs bestimmt werden und die Lira dann abwerten. Deutschland verlöre gar nichts. Dass sich Hans Werner Sinn bereits oft verrechnete sehen wir hier:


Your own currency devalues and thou have foreign currency debt. How to solve that?

Consider / suppose you are a bank, an entrepreneur or a state foreign currency loan of the Republic of Turkey!

Turkish lira TRX is currently devaluing against € or US $.

What can you do now?

Well you can of course reduce risk via a forex pair swap.

In case, that you want to hedge the risk (that TRY don`t fall to much against € OR US$),  you bet on falling TRY/€ forex swap pairs in derivate secondary markets or if this doesn`t exist for huge amounts of TRY, than bet on rising up €/TRY US$/TRY for that case. 

What will happen with that hedge?

In case, that TRY looses more value against € or US$, your risk reducing swap works in the opposite direction.

Your losses will be smoothed out straight.

Attention for case if TRY will regain value against € / US$.

If TRY regains  value against € or US$, your foreign currency credit rate, will not become cheaper, because your hedge swap will loose for that case.

What we ignore in that simple example?

We ignore prime rate and credit rate changes, that could be triggered, when FED or ECB increases or decreases prime rates.

Kind regards,



Maturaschularbeit Deutsch (English completly refactored and updated)

(I wrote the to the same theme 30 years ago my german completion of school work [Abitur] an essay):

It was a lot of generic gossip, where the difference between humanism and existentialism was worked out somewhat, (best intention before acting versus only the result and consequences of thour actions) and from my point of view now, I really didn't understand anything at all, anything about the world, the economy, about the hierarchy of law, about international trade agreements, about mechatronic or IT, buit
But I felt fine and arrogant, because I was so TOP in school in technical science subjects, chemistry, and especially math. [I couldn't model a complex problem with the best mathematical model, no, I didn't even understand linear optimization (simplex) or differential equations.
I'am a left liberal democratic atheist, because of many expierences near or beyond death and a more complex understanding of the abstraction of the mind in correspondence with the brain in our bodies (with heart and lungs) and the spatial and temporal limitation of any existence.
I am a staunch European and a great advocate of the Charter of Human Rights, because nowhere in the world are human rights so respected by law as in Europe
However, I am a little sad that Europe is losing more and more of its economic strength to China, India and the USA, because without a strong modern economy a social fair welfare state isn't possible. Unfortunately, Europe gave up its technically and scientifically innovative lead years ago.
The biggest technical innovations of the Europeans within the last decades were in my opinion GSM ( and Linux (Linus Torvalds from Finland & Alan Cox from Wales)
Unfortunately there were only a few companies in Europe (SuSE in Germany and otherwise linux was mostly only used in the university sector.
In 2010, Torvalds became a United States citizen when getting a job offer from TRANSMETA. In the USA dozens of large corporations use Linux technology, IBM, RedHat, Amazon, Google (Android the most successful further development of Linux for smartphones). and many other BIG players in NASDAQ stock exchange.
If we now take a closer look at android smartphone OS (which is essentially based on GSM and Linux), then the software manufacturer Google is based in the USA, the big phone hardware companies like Samsung, Huawei, Google Pixel, Motorola are everywhere around the world, really everywhere except in Europe . Just two European groups Nokia (with a lot of financial capital aid from the giant Microsoft) and Alcatel (with a lot of support from an unspecified Chinese cooperation) have somehow survived in Europe on the technical course of time.
Don't understand me wrong, in Austria are a lot of good companies mostly within the Federation of Industrialists ( )
and they are still up to date due to the permanent further development of existing TOP products and expansion into new markets, but only further development and never the leap from totaly new innovation to international group succeeded. (We are still capable of new innovation even with economic future value and also to hold listed corporations well on the international markets, but Europeans have recently never managed to establish the proove of concept or prototype for an international product within a corporation).
The philosophy of USA and FED with low taxes, expansive monetary policy and stimulating labor markets, designed central bank policy and with enough freely available risk capital is unfortunately also unknown in Europe. (Perhaps a windy innovative inventor and innovator wanted to realize his idea here in a company too, but it failed because of enough free risk capital and legislation was much too regulative).
I'am stil in eternal spiritual love with my first three ex-girlfriends and the person I mostly trust is Bernhard Seiler, because he forgived me and so many people will never forgive me and a did nothing to them and the still hate me.
The male politician I admire the most is the former finance minister and industrialist Hannes Androsch (, because he's one of the few who argues for an economically strong and social position thanks to his vast know-how.
The female politician I admire the most is Hillary Clinton, because she campaigned for social and women's rights, killed the world's most dangerous terrorist for a long time without risiking American and NATO soldiers lifes somewhere far from home. Most of all, I adore Hillary Clinton because she forgave her husband Billclinton and stood by him and fought for him in the media like a lioness when she was emotionally hurt the most. Her good relationship with her pretty daughter Chelsea Clinton also lasts to this day.
I am now an middle aged more worn man marked by life, who prefers to look to the future positively rather than depressed, especially because for great Love and perspectives for his two sons. (my children).

The most needed reforms were, are and will still be education and pension reforms, because my children already got a bit know more economical and technical education, but the quality of basic public education is still not at the state of the art, where you as parent can be sure, that your kids have a solid natural science base and technical toolbox to not believe the crudest conspiration theories.


Semantic web lost in history / herstory around 2010, how to reactivate it & a short contract use case

Current hypes, trends and pushed business models at 2020

Let's take a short look at the current hypes, trends and pushed business models for companies:

  1. IOT (Internet of things), Industry 4.0
    Machines, units, etc. know and probably send their own status at manufacturer, service center, at home or somewhere else over the rainbow (in case of  ugly DNS injection, warped rouing tables [OSPF, BGP] ot men in the middle [squid bump, bluecoat, ...]).
    Those units normally,communicate when they need maintenance, when components soon needs to be replaced, when physical, technical or environmental critical limit reached, when subsystems fail or completley shut down, when the user when the customer operates it improperly or negligently, simply report in intervals that they are alive and everything's OK, , etc

    We can find a lot of use cases for many useful applications here, added value / surplus is often small but still useful! Problems with security, flood of data, extracting relevant events and, above all, reacting to the corresponding message are the challenges here.

  2. Cloud
    I like the cloud, but sometimes cloud feels cloudy, cloudier, obscure dust and smog over keywords and hypes and real hard technical features that generate great customer surplius and real cash or quality of business benefits.

    What are the most common problems, pitfalls and misunderstandigs with any cloud?

    • Lack of specific customer requirements and inaccurate, exact technical specifications from the cloud provider.

      Practical example (what I really need and I'm thinking about right now):
      I need to implement a state service, that saves current game status of small multiplatform games (e.g. card game schnapsenarchon clone, SUPU) in the cloud. If I play on my  android tablet or smartphone, the current state and course of the game will be transfered to a cloud servie, persisted in a cloud storage or database and if I continue playing on Windows desktop, the last state of the game is automatically fetched from the cloud and the game application sets that game state and transferred back to cloud after the next move.

      For my purposes the cheapest way will be sufficient:
      A simple Amazon Linux 2 AMI (HVM), SSD Volume, Type t2.nano, t2.micro or t2.nano with a simple SQL-Database (no matter if hackish install at virtual imaage or the smallest Amazon DB instance) with somekind of open source PHP Swagger API, like

      With similar requirements, some developers and most managers are probably unsure whether to use Amazon ElasticCache or some kind of Session State Server ported to Azure SQL  or entirely another not well known cloud service.

      Even fewer people (including myself) know what the exact technical limits of the individual services are, e.g. the exact performance and scalable elasticity of Anazon Elastic Cache and when scalability of Amazon Elastic Cache is completely irrelevant, since the network traffic and the network data volume will always be the bottle neck in that specific scenario.

    • Nice advertising slogan, but poor performance and poorly configurable options from drive and storage providers, no standard network mount (like SMB or NFS), but a lot of cloudy magic.
      When I look at the beautiful Google Drive and Microsoft One Drive, I immediately see that this is not a classic network file system mount under my point of understanding.
      Reading and writing large blocks or deep recursively nested directory trees is extremely slow.
      I also didn't find an option to have an incremental version history backup created after every change (Create, Delete, Change) to the Cloud Drive or at least simply midnight-generated backups for the last 3 months at low cost.
      Options like synchronizing parts of the Cloud Drive locally create horror nightmares.
      In 1997 we booted an NFS from the USA via Etherboot with real-time DOS and debugged faster Doom Clones and other 3D games in C ++ with some ASM routines and the network performance didn't fail.

    • Difficulty finding the most suitable service in Cloud Djungel. Real technical comparisons between the hard facts and the possibilities of the individual cloud services have so far mainly published by free bloggers, e.g. AWS Lambda vs Azure Service Fabric
      Decisions are more based on creeds (we have a lot of .NET developers, so we'll use Azure, I mah strong Amazon-like power women and Linux, so I'll use Amazon).

Lets go back to RDF in the years 2010 - 2015 

You probably know what semantic web, owl, rdf, machine readable & understandable data are, right?

If not, then here is a little bit of reading:

What does 'going back in time' mean in a large scope and broader sense?

Before all the new trends, there was an attempt to realize semantic web, e.g. RDF as an XML extension with semantic machine-understandable properties.

When we as human beeings read a website or analyze BIG data, we automatically recognize the context, perhaps the meaning and probably the significance of this data.

Machines can't do that, they didn't have a semantic understanding until now.

Information theory distinguishes between 3 levels of information:

  1. Syntax level (compiler construction, scanner, parser, automata & formal languages, extended grammar, e.g.
  2. Semantic level (meaningful reading by people, putting things into context, understanding contexts).
  3. Pragmatic level (goal-oriented action based on information by recognizing the meaning at the level of semantics).

I assume / postulate:

=> If computer programs reach 2. semantic level => then we are a big step closer to AI realization.

Why computer programs can't already implement semantic understandig? 

Theoretically and also practically in terms of technical frameworks, computer programs are already able to understand semantically data.

The concrete problem is here, that too little data are provided in a semantically machine-readable form and a standardized (META-)language.

Example: Regardless of whether Statistics Austria, Open Data GV or ECB, etc, certainly provide very good statistics, but none of them provide semantic machine-readable data.

Somebody has to make here a  larger startup, to transform already provided common and needed statistics public data in semantically machine-readable form.

What does that actually bring in return of short time invest?

Not so much immediately!

What could be the fruits in mid-term or in the long tail?

A lot, because when more and more public open data are availible in a semantic machine readable language, programs can also bring some of them in association and we'll be able to implement meta relational AI rules then.

Use case contracts

Semantic programs doesn't only mean mass data fetching and putting them into relation. 
Semantic programming could also in principle support any very formal business process, e.g. contract management for

  • employment contracts
  • supply contracts
  • service provider contracts
  • insurance contracts
  • bank contracts 
  • and all the contracts that people sign with just one click on a checkbox (which they usually do not know that this is a legal contract consent).

All clear and understandable so far?

I got this idea when I was looking and inspecting the adopted amendment to the laws and newly passed laws by the democratic republic of Austria and I wanted some semantic automated statistics for some use cases.
