Good evening dear readers,

2013: whistleblower Edward Snowden flees from the NSA to Hongkong and then to Russia while informing the world about secret spy activities against American citizens as well as those of other countries
2017: we read about the Vault 7 series by Wikileaks informing the world about the biggest intelligence leak to this date in covering similar techniques by the CIA

Times are changing and they are changing fast.

So, in a small time frame of only 16 months, our “prophecy” become true unfortunately, that the open web, the open internet is dead. And believe us, we also didn’t want to hear or read this, but http, the de-facto web protocol we all love and grew up with, is deprecated by now. This is like, well, telling millions over millions of web developers & users, bloggers, online journalists, artists, etc. all over the world “if you use insecure http, you suck!” It’s not fair, it’s not even their fault. But we pay for the bills in the end.

So, this March 2017 we did heavy work, project wide, under the hood: we switched from http to https. Everywhere. You can count us now to the 50% (at least according to Firefox statistics) of the web which implemented and use it already. This was no easy part and still there are issues. Let’s give you an overview of some of the problems we faced:

  • 1. after all, find free and good CA sites. The most promising project by now is Let’s Encrypt. Their work is in fact so promising and backed by heavy champions of the industry, they really could achieve their goal to encrypt the entire www
  • 2. read about the redirect methods in your .htaccess, if you didn’t know already about it. Otherwise your sites will crash/not use https
  • 3. eliminate mixed content: unfortunately Mozilla, Google and Apple won’t accept https 100% when you start using using it. You need to invest time to eliminate all your old links to documents, graphics, counters, etc. Double check your databases too. This will take most of your time maybe, but it should be worth it
  • 4. Relax, drink a beer, enjoy sun. You finally made it!

Working with the internet today is almost entirely defined by working with the WWW. No matter what you do, the most of the stuff you do online you do via your web browser. Heck, even smartphone apps use the web as their platform.

We may have lost the fight to keep the web an open medium. Not a good sign. But we are still in fighting to keep it a secure medium. Which is, well, until someone in maybe 27 years from now on (remember, the web was born around 1990) will know new facts, read between the lines again and state “https is deprecated”!

Never stop fighing. Never.

Happy New Year to y’all!

We’re starting the brand new year 2017 with an exclusive sale of the first commercial project we did: zockerseele.com.

Soon we’ll start auctioning the complete project, but until this unspecified date we’re trying to find a new owner via our common channels.

Bidding will start at 7.500€. First come, first served.

zockerseele.com snapshot

And here are some highlights you’ll get for those bucks:

  • project’s existing since 2005, already 12 years old now
  • 3 URLs: zockerseele.com, zockerseele.net & zockerseele.de
  • layout, design, graphics, etc. included
  • 5.300+ (German) entries about every video game topic you can imagine
  • 1.86 million visitors to this date…
  • …as well as 1.4+ billion page views
  • currently 200-300 visits per day
  • site statistics with databases included
  • size of all the files: 2.16GB

We’re doing this for several reasons: firstly, see it as an experiment. Secondly, no one has the time or ambition to write entries anymore. Thirdly, we want to expand more on the Android platform. And fourthly, we need money for developing and promoting these apps.

If you’re interested, drop us a line: info@aethyx.eu. The project will be sold to the first one who accepts the fee of 7.500€. In this case we won’t do an auction. So just do it and do it quick!

It was helluva fun to maintain this project. But in the end, it’s time for a split and try something new.

Thanks for reading! Spread the word!

Kindest regards,
the aethyx staff

Dear readers,

2016 was a sad year for the western civilisation. What happened with BREXIT and the election in the USA was a cataclysm which will throw humanity as a whole back into uncertain times. When even the Oxford Dictionary is naming “post-truth” as word of the year, one may anticipate what lies ahead.

But these are not the times to surrender. These are changing times, times to step out of the pack and finally start fighting.

Regarding new technologies we got all the tools we need. Now is the time to use them. Against those who are against us, against tolerance, multi-culturalism, diversity, freedom, peace, free will. As stated in the last decade by some, “there’s a war on for your mind”. Don’t be tricked. It lies in your hands, literally.

  • Stop watching TV or listening to radio. Start your own TV or radio, with the service you choose.
  • Stop reading mainstream media, start your own media house or blog, like we did back in 2010.
  • Stop selling yourself, your interests and friends on Facebook or Twitter for nothing, start your own social network, like Friendica or open a Diaspora* pod.

Help those who want to leave those exploiting places, think for your friends and families, mind money less. No matter which way you finally choose, no matter which tool you decide to use, you did it for yourself, your social contacts, completely on your own. And no matter which problems you may run into, we are here to help, just drop us a line: info@aethyx.eu. Or use our comfortable contact form.

Well, stay sharp out there! 2017 won’t be easy, that’s for sure. Let’s forget 2016, as fast as possible. Historians will call this one of the lost years of humanity some day. If they will be allowed to work still, of course.

“Enjoy” your holidays & we wish you a wonderful start into the new year! Keep on fighting! You can do it!

Only the bestest,
your aethyx staff

“If sales control stats I place no faith on the majority” – El-P

Dear readers,

we usually avoid political topics but what happened today to western democracy (and technology) is like the final nail in the coffin of all of us still living and breathing in what is called “the west”: a neo-capitalist, xenophobic, sexist, racist, rich white anti-social is reigning the military most powerful and thus most dangerous country _on earth_ for the next. Four. Years.

It’s nothing new and we know already that the election system in the USA is rusty (at best) and not up to date when we watched a rich Texan sociopath being artificially elected in 2000 which ultimately led to the biggest disaster for western civilization since WWII, but the 9th of November 2016 will be seen by historians in the future as the date the United States of America, and maybe even all of the Western world, was no more.

The dream is over.

What we saw today is classic history repeating. Even in Europe, no matter where you look, Hungary, Austria, France, Scandinavia, Brexit of UK this year, Germany, national-socialism is on the rise again. This is no path for world peace, this is a path into a world war. And if this gets hot, it’ll be the last of humanity. A rational mind knows this. For decades, not even centuries.

2016 showed us what we really are: mostly white, stupid, retards. Humanity won’t work with this shit. We don’t exclude us: we need to get rid of ourselves. We became useless. That’s how we feel today. We should mourn ourselves. We failed miserably. We are finally entering the very last dark age.

But maybe we should be happy: as no one can even anticipate what will happen next, let’s party! Fighting for or against something became utterly useless! Yay!1

Approximately one and a half year ago one of our authors hacked together an Android app for FEMEN. The nature of this movement involves bare human breasts which is the main reason we weren’t able so far to distribute it via offical app stores like Google Play.

FEMEN Android app icon

But fear not, the author released the app already into the wild and it’s actually available via GitHub, see here:

https://github.com/aethyx/femen.

Licensed under the GPLV2 which means the digital world is invited to add code as well as features at any time to develop this project further.

Most of the time so far the releases here are maintenance releases: updating the app to run under the most current Android OS version as well as updating the resources used here. Social networks take down FEMEN pages quite often for no reason. To find and implement new content as soon as possible is one of the main tasks for new versions so far.

Please share and include the app into the open repositories where possible!

Also, don’t hesitate to join the project if you’re a coder or have new ideas for this app!

There should be more movements like FEMEN out there. The world would be a much better and more intelligent place for all of us. Rock on, girls!

Cheers,

Dear readers,

this month we’re trying to shape some awareness: we want you to switch! From whatever operating system you are using to Linux!

On the 5th of October 2016 humanity’s most advanced, most secure, most stable and (probably) most updated operating system turns 25. But, for reasons not fully understood to us from a technical perspective as well as from a rational point of view, to this date worldwide current estimations only count 87.000.000 actual users. With an internet population of over 3.4 billion…

As an entrance, if you’re curious how many and which distributions are available use this list:

http://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=popularity.

There exists a distribution for everyone!

  • For Mac-Enthusiasts who care about a beautiful desktop: choose Elementary
  • If you care about ethics, choose Debian
  • If you want to use “a Linux that everyone uses” choose Ubuntu or openSuSE, those two distributions are the easiest and offer the most support
  • If you want to be a programmer or hacker, choose Arch

This is only a very small list, Linux is diversity: to this date 280 different distributions are listed on Distrowatch.com, and growing.

Buried in a recent announcement the two biggest desktop CPU makers in the world, AMD and Intel, announced both that they only support Windows 10 or newer with their newest generation of chips. So time has come to support your own OS advancement too: switch to Linux when buying a new laptop or PC! We promise you won’t regret it.

Thanks for reading and don’t miss out: 5th of October 2016, Linux becomes 25! Happy Birthday, Linux! And thank you that you’re still with us to this date! You rock!

Regards,
the aethyx staff

Experts say the Self-publishing market will skyrocket the next 2 to 5 years. More and more publishers will emerge, taking market share from the big two which currently are Amazon and BoD (Books on Demand).

Phew, then we’re glad for our vision in 2010 when AETHYX MEDIAE was born!

It shouldn’t matter if you’re doing this online or offline by the way: in either case it was never easier and faster than it is today.

you start your weblog here with us in no time, for a fair and moderate price: see what we have in our store for you and convince yourself!

Possible with AETHYX MEDIAE: we already published six eBooks this way, even with customised covers which are available via Amazon (*cough*), XinXii and Google Play Books! And believe us: due to a market which doesn’t even exist, these won’t be the only three.

We’re happy and looking forward what lies ahead together with you! Become a part of this today: info@aethyx.eu, contact us anytime!

Dear readers,

since yesterday the NATO sees cyberspace officially as a new territory for its operations. This is no good news for users of the interwebs.

I) Why is this a problem?

Currently the NATO exists of only 28 states out of 192 worldwide. To most people this “intergovernmental military alliance” lost its meaning completely at the moment the Berlin wall fell. Before that, the world was balanced by self-knockouts of two countries only, USA and Sovjet Union. The world lived in peace, or at least it was recognised by most people, after the fall of the Iron Curtain 1989, until September the 11th, 2001.

Unfortunately a lot has changed to the worse, not only regarding web topics. People are executed or jailed for publishing independent texts online and offline. Religious conflicts worldwide backed by military-industrial complex structures, most of them from NATO countries, arose and killed hundreds and thousands of people. The conflict with Ukraine is mainly a NATO, not a Russian problem. Former Warsaw Pact states were tricked in joining NATO first before becoming a full EU member. Al-Qaida became ISIL will become what-ever. The modernisation as well as the future development of new kinds of atomic bombs. And so on.

As you can see there is absolutely no advantage in being regarded an “operation territory” by NATO. We don’t know if they were just stupid or megalomaniac when they proclaimed that publicly. You as an internet user should be prepared for the worst; remember the Snowden files since 2013, please, if you didn’t believe citizen journalists before this American whistleblower already.

II) What can I do now?

The worst you could do: Going offline.

What we regard since several years is the fact that the internet became to powerful for the global elite to control and they want to trick you in leaving it to them what’s good for you. Believe us: we are here since 2000 already and if you don’t do it yourself, then someone else will do it for you! The internet is no TV is no radio! It’s too huge, too complex and no organisation or system, we repeat, no organisation or system on this planet to this date is able to process all data here!

That’s how Apple tried to take your mobile internet. That’s how Facebook took all of your friends as well as what you and your loved ones like. That’s why Microsoft bought Skype, Nokia as well as LinkedIn. They want you to believe that they own anything already and they keep selling you this lie. Yeah, then see for yourself how huge the web really is.

You know, we still remember the promises of the golden internet times 1999/2000 for anyone and AETHYX MEDIAE thinks this time is still to come! Don’t leave it all to giant corporations! The dinosaurs will vanish anyway! Did you know that Microsoft even didn’t see the WorldWideWeb coming? Imagine: in 2016 you as a user are enough experienced & skilled with web knowledge than you might think! Do it on your own or leave it to us! Check out our product range:

https://aethyx.eu/eshop!

We are glad to help where we can in making yourself free from those kraken overlords! Don’t hesitate to contact us!

For anything else, becoming a creator from being only a consumer is never easy: Use VPN!

III) Aren’t you just panicking?

No, definitely not. NATO today is good for nothing. It never was, actually. If you didn’t see or experience this on your own between 1989 and the end of 2001 we feel very sorry for you.

IV) Didn’t they forget to mention space?

Yes, they actually did. We believe that happened on purpose. We currently live in world with five realms: water, earth, air, space and cyber. We will never forget those stupid “Star Wars” plans by certain American politicians. In fact, one of those aggressive star wars systems is currently sold to Poland and will be operating there 2018. No one in the EU wants such systems and those are not needed. Regarding the tensions between Brussels and Warsaw at the current time, we, IOHO, think we lost Great Britain and Poland already to the USA. The EU won’t be able to change that. Shall they leave the European Union. For Europe, Russia was never an opponent! In history.

tl;dr

With the recent news that NATO, which and with it all of its member states failed on only one day in 2001, we don’t believe it’s a good sign now being regarded as target(s) when using internet and/or web services. Our article here pointed out our angriness as well as some hints for you as a user or small corporation to avoid future complications. That’s just our opinion but AETHYX MEDIAE as an independent publishing house thinks that as long as NATO exists there will be stupid wars for generations, no matter which realm. And you know who profit the most from those mass killings? Only the 28 wealthiest states on this planet. Time to become activists, people!

Dear readers & customers,

as a new media publishing house which we are representing it’s impossible today to only have one foot left in the new media doors.

So, what we did in the mean time since we rolled out our lemon fresh new look, is expanding our product range.

I) We still offer installing your classical blog with all you need to be a satisfied customer of the 21. century. Also, our start page for this hasn’t changed: https://aethyx.eu/eshop/. This is our core business and it will always be so.

Despite that, we expanded our main menu of the website with several brand new sub menus:

II) Interested in renting cloud space? Want to get rid of your old & nasty surveillance-tainted free cloud space provider? Or you simply just want to know today what that buzz around the “cloud” is? Then this is the new address for you: https://aethyx.eu/eshop/cloud-services/.

III) But maybe you want us to design an Android app for you which then will be available to billions of users and thousands of devices. All you need for that is clicking and bookmarking this link: https://aethyx.eu/eshop/apps-for-android/.

And finally, IV) We already accomplished releasing eBooks fully loaded with contents from weblogs. See our references or for future updates about this new eBook topic here, visit https://aethyx.eu/eshop/ebook-publishing/, please.

We accept payments in the following forms, but this is also emphasised on the offering pages themselves: IBAN, PayPal (not anonymously) and Bitcoin (100% anonymously).

You see: AETHYX MEDIAE got you covered what lies ahead! Become a part of the future, now! Contact us!

Yours sincerely,
the aethyx staff
