No Advertising, no Advertsising E-mails or Letters, no Newsletters, no Product Advertising

Non of my websites sends advertising e-mails or newsletters. I principally do not use newsletters, instead I use consistently RSS news tickers which have numerous ad­van­tages over e-mail newsletters. Introductory article: „Keep up with the News with RSS Feed Readers.“

I principally do not write readers' letters, and do not send any advertising e-mails, ad­ver­tis­ing letters, or news letters.

All information are offered exclusively “passively” on my own official websites. Current news and notifications can be read in news sections and can be obtained via RSS news tickers publicized on my official websites

All websites recommended by me are exclusively listed on my own websites. I do not practise banner exchange.

I neither use Facebook nor Twitter nor MySpace, no eBay, no PayPal, or any other similar services.

General remarks on precautionary measures in e-mail communication: Fraudsters, e-mail spam senders (WP article “Spamming”) and discrediters/eputation-damaging persons often use real e-mail addresses from the Internet to underpin their credibility. The sender name and sender address of an e-mail can easily be forged. In addition, the utmost caution is required when attachments such as .zip files are attached to alleged invoices, credits, declarations of love, faxes, etc., which are intended to lead to ill-considered action and opening of the attachment as a result of emotional turmoil. Forwarding a suspicious email to a third party for analysis is also risky, as it could put you on the list (blacklists) of senders of fraudulent and spam emails fully automatically (via email delivery system analysis procedures) and discredit your own email address. In general, every step should be carefully planned in such cases, as otherwise you run the risk due to ill-considered reactions that those affected by the identity theft (WP article “identity theft”) could also take legal action against you because of damage to their reputation.



No Collecting of Donations, no Appeals for Donations

I don't collect donations: I don't write any donation emails and I don't call for such actions. I do not have a donation function for myself or for my internet pages. I do not send any advertising material for third parties, nor do I send any donation-call e-mails or letters for third parties.

This information is given in order to exclude possible free riders.



No Representatives, no Employees

I have no representatives or assistants or other employees who speak for me. This will not change in the future. I do not offer jobs.



Communication Notes
No Telephony, no Mobile Telephony, no Fax

I do not communicate on a business level via telephone, which is not very suitable for proof of identity. Telephone information is generally not provided. I do not own a mobile phone or a fax machine and refuse to accept any contracts or offers. The telephone number is only given in the imprint in order to comply with the legal requirements.

I don't get involved in discussions on the phone or on site. Anyone who has something to tell me should do so in writing, preferably by electronic mail. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee of a reply.

Due to telephony being unsuitable for proof of identity and the high risk of im­per­so­na­tion, I only conduct phone calls with immediate family, using landline network only. I prin­ci­pal­ly do not use mobile telephony, SMS or fax.[*]


Footnote:

[*] A large part of the facts, on which my decision is based, is documented in the articles of the websites diagnose-funk.org and chemtrail.de, among other things in the “Mo­bil­funk­bro­schü­re” of the comprehensive information webpage Chemtrail.de: Do­ku­men­te → Do­ku­men­ten­ar­chiv (PDF‘s+Doc‘s).

The national and international web pages of the link lists, “Links” and “Links zu”, as well as numerous other web presences, including the “Cell Phone Dangers” section of the news portal rense.com, contain detailed information on the subject.

Critical illustrations on the mobile phone technology allowed by the rulers are available at http://www.deesillustration.com; it is highly likely that many beneficial technologies will be blocked and banned by the background powers, not only in the energy sector, but also in the telecommunications sector.


Prefered Communication Medium: Cryptographically signed E-Mail

Currently, the effective protection that can be achieved with publicly available cryptographic technology is highly questionable. Advanced computer technology is likely to be kept out of the public domain in order to keep the intelligence services of the rulers at the forefront of computing power. In addition, software and hardware backdoors probably exist. Officially recommended standardized encryption methods may have inherent mathematical weaknesses: Why should the intelligence services of the Western and Eastern hemispheres recommend and give away self-developed secure algorithms whose use would make their central work, interception and industrial espionage, impossible?

The higher-ranking organisations of those families who stand above the law most probably have an incomparably strong calculating power, which normal users have little to oppose. However, some of the potential attackers under the law can be fended off. The communication security can be increased at least within a certain framework, by consistent use of cryptographic signing.

All my e-mails are always signed cryptographically, with PGP/MIME or a separate signature. I never send unsigned e-mails without any exception. Signatures need to be verified, for example with GnuPG GNU Privacy Guard, www.gnupg.org, MS Windows version: www.gpg4win.org. I only use the key listed in the imprint. PeterJockisch.de is the only official source for my key.


Signature Verification with OpenPGP and GnuPG

To view a name and a cryptographical checksum is not sufficient. For the authentication, the signature must be verified. After the initial activation, modern e-mail agents fully and au­to­mat­ically verify in the background.

For the qualified electronic signature, most often, only hardware-based (chipcard) class-3-certificates, certified by legally recognized CAs are accepted by law. However, the re­quired hardware and software infrastructure (available card readers, supported op­er­at­ing sys­tem, e-mail agent, software) is throughout of proprietary nature; this means not check­a­ble and visible and thus especially risky under security aspects. If attached to your email, I maybe will use such public X.509- or OpenPGP certificates with my mail pro­gram (MUA). However, I myself do not sign with such certificates


Cryptographical checksums as alternative proof of authenticity

Some recipients are not familiar with practical encryption and signing, or they have no pos­si­bil­i­ty to use it in their country. In these cases, in addition to the signed e-mail, I write the mes­sage seperately in a “.txt” or “.pdf” file and publicize its checksum in the checksum blog section on PeterJockisch.de, combined with the date of dispatch, sending time and initials indicating the document.



Checksums for files can be created with a single right mouse click, for example with Free Software like Cyohash or Jacksum. More information about the application possibilities can be found in the introductory article “Practical application of cryptographic checksums”.

For verification, the checksum of the attached ".txt" or ".pdf" file must first be formed. You can then check the checksum blog area of PeterJockisch.de to see whether there is an entry with the corresponding checksum for the e-mail date in question. Checksums of my e-mails are published there and only there, nowhere else:

http://www.peterjockisch.de/blog_en/checksums-blog.html.

My e-mail texts do not contain any data on the checksum. That would be completely sense­lessly. Everyone could write an arbitrary file and subsequently copy a checksum of the blog sec­tion into the e-mail text.

SSL/TLS certified site sections will follow.



How do you pronounce Peter Jockisch?

In German you pronounce Peter as [ˈpeːtɐ] and the family name Jockisch like Yockish: The “J” is spoken like a “Y” and the “sch” like the “sh” in “English”. The stress is on the first syl­la­ble. Phonetic transcription in IPA notation: [ˈpeːtɐ ˈjɔkˌɪʃ].



Biographical Notes

The publication of texts entails that readers sometimes want to learn more about one' s personal history.

About the family background: I was born in 1970 in Freiburg im Breisgau in southwest Germany and was baptized as a Protestant.[1] My mother is German and comes from Brieg (overview, brochure) an der Oder, Silesia. She grew up after the expulsion in Bavaria and came to Freiburg in 1961. My “father” was Peruvian. Both originally met at the end of the 1960s during a French language course in Besançon. Due to numerous cultural incompatibilities, the relationship was short-lived. From the encounters during his pro forma visits in the 1970s to the early 1980s, as well as from his pro forma cliché letters (and not responding to my letter contents), I knew we had nothing in common. Also, he paid practically no alimony for me (only child), his subsequent children all had a higher priority, so financially it was anything but easy for us [2].

The “father” had never lived here, not even temporarily. He came here only to visit. He never received any money in the BRD/FRG. During his research scholarship/doctorate (geology, water veins in the Vosges) at the end of the 1960s he lived in Strasbourg, Alsace. After the subsequent relationship with his French wife also broke down, he returned to South America. There he founded a family again; I ended the contact in 2001. I don't speak Spanish and I don't feel any connection to the cultural or family roots of my “father”, I have no interest in contact to this side. My homeland, my Heimat (English WP article on the German word “Heimat”) my native, i.e. spiritual-cultural place of being, my ethnic soul affiliation (my Volks­see­len­zu­ge­hö­rig­keit) and spatial rootedness (my heimatliche Verortung) was always Germany for me. Germany, in the long run free from any occupying powers: The goal is a sovereign, self-determined, free Germany.

Professional: I got my Abitur at the Kepler-Gymnasium Freiburg. For various reasons I did not finish my computer science studies. In the city planning office Freiburg and in the surveying office. I gained practical experience in the field of document archiving and processing. In the Freiburg City Library I gained insights into the working processes of a library. The activity in the youth center Stühlinger Freiburg taught me a lot about didactics (my recommendations to free programs contain link lists to free teaching materials).

Leisure interests: In the area of nutrition, I am mainly interested in vegan cuisine and herbal alternatives to milk and eggs. I consider sweet lupin-based products (lopino, sweet lupin milk, etc.) to be very promising. A vegan cake dough, e.g. a nut cake or marble cake dough, which is just as airy and fluffy as a dough with eggs, I unfortunately did not succeed so far yet, not even with egg substitute products. I feel earthy when I work in the allotment garden, which is a great interface to nature. In the remaining time I reproduce copyright-free documents.


Footnotes:

[1] At the age of 16 I left the institution church. However, I am firmly convinced that consciousness is based on more than just biochemistry and that there is an origin behind the physical perception scene.

[2] My mother's salary, together with her part-time job as a typist, was just above the income threshold from which there would have been social assistance. After all deductions, however, she had less money in her hand than a welfare recipient. It was the 1970s and 1980s, much was different; autochthonous single people resp. native single people with a single child also had the highest deductions. The “father” never paid his alimony debts, his subsequent children in Alsace all had higher priority for him.

The three-dimensional representation of the surface of the earth is obtained by a com­bi­na­tion of col­ored contour levels with hillshading- and shading technique [“Schummerungs- und Schat­tie­rungs­tech­nik”]. Of interest is the overlap print distinguished by colors, for example of Australia and Europe. By this, a comparison of areas is easily possible. The plenty thematic maps are also some­thing special. The cartography of these works does not need to shun the competitors of that time [...]”.

Information in the map “Ver­brei­tung der deut­schen Spra­che”, at the bottom on the right: according to Be­ha­gel, Berg­haus, Bren­ner, Lang­hans and others. (“nach Be­ha­gel, Berg­haus, Bren­ner, Lang­hans und an­de­ren”).

Behaghel probably refers to the Germanist Otto Behaghel (English WP-Artikel, German article of the University of Gießen).

Berghaus maybe could refer to one of these three personalities: Johann Peter Berg­haus (cartographer, illustrator, lithographer), Heinrich Berg­haus (cartographer), his neph­ew Hermann Berghaus, or Heinrich Karl Berghaus.

A Germanist named Oskar Brenner researched and taught at the University of Würz­burg (Deutsche Biographie, Würzburgwiki-Eintrag).

Langhans is the surname of a German geographer and cartographer, Paul Langhans.
