New commits trickery

 I commited some changes to some of my gh projects:

psc is now using an embedded AES and SHA-512 implementation, in order for easier builds for embedded systems w/o proper SDK support. E.g. it is now super easy to have Android binaries built with it, w/o messing with BoringSSL builds. It also contains a base64 en/decoder on the remote side callable via pscr -E or pscr -D for convenience. Last not least, you can script psc sessions via pscsh. Something similar you propably know from screen with shared sessions.

For harddns, my DoH solution - that was one of the first Open Source DoH implementations available at all - I added NXDOMAIN replies for PTR queries, in order to keep up with newer net-utils packages on current distributions which always try to reverse-resolve obtained A records to PTR records. I also updated the shipped default config to remove the PowerDNS DoH servers, as they recently have shutdown this service :(

Anniversary trickery

Some of you probably already noticed in past, but almost exactly one year ago, I founded my own company:

You can find more details about the exact services at our gh landing page. In order to celebrate our 1y, I pushed new commits to our performance flagship greppinIt is now basically lock-free and runs faster than ripgrep.

Thanks to our clients who made this possible! If things go well as before, I will also alloc() a merchandise budget, so you may ask me for free tee-shirts at the conferences.
