The Parallel Christian Economy

The parallel economy is building and we need to pay attention. There will be a black/grey market that exists, because there will have to be. When I lived in Cuba, Syria, and Iraq, there was always a black market. The regular market never had everything you needed, so you have to work with the people who actually were able to get what was needed. We are entering this age, and it’s important to have the communication systems, finance systems, and trust needed to function when times are tough…

What is Crypto Currency?

It all began in 2009 with the Bitcoin White Paper. Satoshi Nakamoto, whom we don’t know who that is, wrote the Bitcoin Whitepaper as a proposition to the world that there is a way to create a digital ledger than can be unchangeable and maintain accounts honestly, without human intervention. This is the blockchain. Bitcoin was created soon after…

Website Design

We build all of our websites using Wordpress. Not to be confused with Wordpress.com, which is a pro-censorship organization that has their own custom version of the Wordpress open source application. Wordpress allows us to achieve a great balance of design flexibility and functionality. Do you want a website that can send marketing emails? Wordpress can do that (with FluentCRM). Do you want a good looking website with a drag and drop builder? Use the DIVI builder from Elegant themes. Do you want an e-Commerce store site with censorship resistant payment gateways? WooCommerce and Cornerstone can be linked together to achieve this…

What is NAS?

I chose to setup the NAS for another reason as well. I wanted to learn more about networking. In the, “What is a Datacenter?” article I referenced the three components of a datacenter. Compute, Storage, and Networking. Having a NAS forces you to use all three at a pretty low level in your stack. Where does that image live? Well, it lives on a different computer than the one that actually processes the image. This has forced us to troubleshoot and improve out networking architecture quite a bit…

What is a Datacenter?

As technology advances, I propose that the datacenter can get smaller. That is what we do at Altha Technology. We are making the datacenter smaller, and wanting to teach people how to run their own micro-datacenters around the United States. We believe that geography matters for philosophical reasons and for legal reasons. Having sovereignty and control over your data is prudent practice…

What is a Reverse Proxy?

A reverse proxy sits near the front of your network to get traffic where it needs to go. When you go to: https://althatech.com there are quite a few things that happen. As we discussed previously the DNS requests go out and the DNS system will get you to the server IP address where the website is. If I have 10 websites, but only one public IP address, then what do I do? Enter the reverse proxy…

What is DNS?

To tie this in a little bit with censorship. Your IP address is a limited resource, it can be deleted/shutoff without your permission. You registration is a limited resource, it can be shutoff without your permission. Just so you are aware that these are very hard to fight spots for censorship attacks. Also cyber attacks at the DNS and server layer are an arms race as well…

Testing the Waters

I can’t say I made a conscious decision to build a censorship aware hosting company, but I always liked computer hardware and wanted to link my company with the real world. The virtual world can be very deceptive in its temptations of a, “World without limits.” It only is without limits if you stare at a screen that is 6-16 inches wide, which is a bit ironic…
