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:
There exists a distribution for everyone!
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!

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:
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.
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: http://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: http://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: http://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 http://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!

The term “weblog” was coined at the end of 1997 by Jorn Barger. The first web service offering weblogs for an individual was Blogger in 1999, today a property of Google Inc.. However, it took until 2003 that this word was taken as a standard for this kind of medium by mainstream media. This means, all who did have a weblog before 2003, be happy: You may call yourself avant-garde!
A weblog has different core features which distinguish it from other forms of online publications, e.g. online forums:
From these core features, a plethora of functions emerged: RSS/Atom feeds. Tagging. User management. Blogrolls (a collection of links in the sidebar). Templating. Smart URLs. And whatnot.
In fact, what we use, especially with WordPress or Drupal, these are complete suites which we call today CMS, content management systems. Always backed by a database, e.g. MySQL or MariaDB, which can become very huge over a certain period of time.
From weblogs it was only a small step to the often critised (but important and honest) “citizen journalism”. As you may read up, this wasn’t new either, what was completely new was the fact that an individual, or a group of individuals, could do this online and, hypothetically, reach the whole world. For not spending a penny at all, in the case of Blogger for example.
Today, blogs are everywhere: Be it a corporation displaying news in this form, in a “1-click-publishing-form” like Tumblr, or something else. In different states, e.g. Saudi-Arabia, to this day, Bloggers are executed for telling stories about their reality online.
Blogs may protect freedom of speech anywhere, but they may also be used as a weapon for hatred, like seen in European states where right-wing parties flourish since a couple of years. As always, it’s a double-sided sword. Never forget, that it’s the history of the Internet itself which makes them so.
As you can see: Starting is as easy as at the end of the 90s. What we do here at AETHYX MEDIAE is not that different: All we do is giving you the opportunity to use your own domain for your own medium, your own weblog, your own CMS. And if you didn’t hide under stones in the 90s or early 2000s, you should already own and know what a domain is, right?
We use WordPress since 2005 with success and although we read from time to time it has “flaws”, never experienced one problem with it. It became very powerful, very extensible over time, maybe like a labyrinth for starters.
We want to help you in navigating through this labyrinth! As you may see after a couple of months, or maybe even only weeks, this can be a helluva fun! We even set up WordPress for free when you are age 14 or under! Just have a look what we offer right now, we are sure there is something for anyone:
Feel free to contact us anytime, 24/7! We even accept Bitcoin for those who want to stay anonymous!
We think today it’s more important than ever to be an active individual or organization. You know what the proverb says: What doesn’t go with time, goes after some time. And we don’t think you want, or should, go forever. 😉
today is World Day Against Internet Censorship!
Amnesty International as well as Reporters without Borders do their best to unblock and mirror as many websites as possible.
This event exists since 2008, 2016 they helped websites from Turkey, Vietnam and Saudi-Arabia by mirroring the censored contents through cloud services.
Also keep in mind that ad-blockers exist for the same reason: we wouldn’t need them without omnipresent online surveillance!
No government shall decide which websites its citizens may visit or not! No critical topic shall be banned from the critical minds eye! Stop and fight internet censorship wherever possible!
But why not start your own journey on the internet finally? AETHYX MEDIAE as an Independent publishing house realises indie web projects by giving you the opportunity to self-publishing since January 2010 already.
Prices start at 50€ for your own personal CMS (Content Management System) hosted on the server of your choice!
Besides, our cloud services use the free and Open-Source solution Owncloud hosted on secure servers in Europe. Prices start as low as 1€/GB per month!
Contact us directly via Email, email@example.com, and with our help you switch from a passive consumer to an active creator in no time!
Hope to hear from you soon!

We want to celebrate the 12th of February for one helluva scientist: Charles Darwin!
To oppose all those stupid people out there who still think humans developed from flying spaghetti monsters.
The first Darwin’s Day was celebrated on April 22nd 1995. Afterwards especially atheists, scientists and students made it happen on February the 12th, Charles Darwin‘s birthday.
To see what events are happening today, worldwide by the way, visit this link: http://www.darwinday.org/.
Let’s keep it this day with their first slogan: promote public education about science! Celebrate sciences! Celebrate humanity!

firstly, a Happy New Year! Make your wishes come true!
Secondly, all of our Android apps except YAABy were updated shortly:
What we completely dismissed is Facebook. We deleted all of our Facebook sites associated with our projects (for obvious reasons meanwhile). What you still can do is like the articles inside our apps and on our web pages, of course. But Facebook is there just another social site of many. That’s the way it should be, we thought.
Thirdly, we made them Marshmellow-compatible, which means Android 6.x.x support. According to our experiences from our inhouse testers the Chromium engine running our apps is much more stable and faster then in previous app versions. Try it, feel it! It’s always best to upgrade Android apps to the newest versions anyway.
If you want to do us a favour (upgrading apps is a time intensive and nerve eating process), use Flattr as well as Bitcoin underneath this post! We. Need. More. Alcohol!
See you around!

in general we are looking back to a year of terror in Europe. Whether it’s Al-Qaida or ISIL, the apocalypse is currently destroying important human culture all over the world. As human beings we know already that there is no solution to answer terror with more terror. We hope our politicians will get this as well as support those poorer countries and its populations. This may be a process which was started only several years ago but will be on our European agendas for centuries. You see: A lot of couragious work lies ahead for all of us Europeans and their future generations.
Nevertheless, one shouldn’t forget to look into a brighter future. Europe works, the European idea is one of the most successful ever since World War II. The best: It’s because of the people and families who live here.
We are looking forward into a new year 2016 with less sadness, less horror, less hate. Such cataclysms will only weld together what belongs together. Terror will never win. Europe knows war personally and by its name for centuries. So solutions will be found, peace restored.
Maybe this year one shouldn’t celebrate religious holidays, religion is destroying everything since 9/11. Celebrate yourself, your family, your accomplishments! God is dead, thank goodness, welcome to the a brand new millenium for all human beings worldwide since 2015!
