So, whoami

I am working for a large German hoster/telco and heading a security team there. A fine team of skilled dudes.

I got into Linux at school (mid 90ies) and immediately loved it. My first was 2.5 and I run that for a while. Over the years I experimented with and finally stuck at where I am also a committer.

Nowadays, my business systems have to run Linux while all my personal devices run . Our wireless support In Dfly sucks :/

There's a new "experimental feature" being tested in Firefox 83: sponsored sites in the URL bar.

"Mozilla works with advertising partners to place sponsored tiles on the Firefox home page (or New Tab) that would be useful to Firefox users. Mozilla is paid when users click on sponsored tiles."

You can disable this by setting `browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.showSponsoredTopSites` to `false`.

Two decades ago, people would think I was cracy if I said that by 2020 people would love to give their private data to numerous ads (and surveillance) companies.

The data are:
1. Contacts,
2. Phone logs,
3. SMS,
4. All of the data saved on cloud storage (think Google Drive),
5. Browsing history,
6. Email (think Gmail),
7. Camera on their phones,
8. Health data (think Google Fit),
9. Schedule (think Google Calendar),
10. Family photographs,
11. Real time locations,
12. And numerous others.

And again, jcs@ totally nailed it. He wrote a new blog article about wireless audio with .

I prefer -F rsnd/1 -f rsnd/0 since this chooses USB audio before PCI audio but YMMV.

You say "procrastinating", but I hear "doing side quests".

So This DevTerm from Clockwork Pi appears to be everything I could have wanted out of a #cybredeck when I was 14.

Design inspired by the Tandy 102, but slightly smaller. Screen the same basic aspect ratio as the HP 200 LX, but with modern connectivity and USB.

It'll run DOSBox, it'll run DVTM and all the various terminal apps I need.

The screen ain't sunlight readable, like my Omnibook, but ... I wonder what the bat life is like.

It’s an unbelievably sad day for the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico. After two major cable failures, the telescope is on the brink of an uncontrolled collapse and the NSF has decided to demolish the structure.

If you're having a bad day, if you're listening to those old songs and maybe feeling a little lost, then at least know that there's still a Flabellina affinis out there, hidden away on a shipwreck, out there for you. #weloveslug (One of the few living Fl. affinis to be found on the island, #techdiving today on the Faroud.)

Today I decided to work on an longstanding issue.

As a long term and then user I always mapped the prefix key to CTRL-a. Since my thumb hurts when pressing this combination I now decided to go with tmux's default CTRL-b.

Hell is that hard. Switching something that is part of your muscle memory since over 20 years is @#$%%$# hard.

2020: "One shitty company had a bad day, now nothing on the internet works."

Ah, progress.


npm program downloading binaries over the internet.

It Fails on OpenBSD because it assumes a openbsd-x64.tar.gz file is available on a remote server. Even if it was there, OpenBSD breaks ABI every few months so this is a poor solution. When you use npm, installing a compiler is peanut, why download a binary from the internet???

Mind blown, I never realized this coincidence:

You can use the next number in the Fibonacci sequence (1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34) to convert from miles to kilometers.

For example, 13 miles is 21 kilometers.



I walked into the courtyard, an abandoned chain-link fenced-in parking lot.
One corner of a crumbling wall lay on its own, all covered in ivy.

The ivy turned to fire in the autumn sun.
