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 :/

Now that's what I call support :) I spotted that the vmctl(8) man page is not in sync with the VMM FAQ and @kn immediately committed a fix for it.

Spend a very productive morning at the setting up an SSH CA on . Local tests with principals work as expected.

Would you replace your existing internet provider with a community-based ISP, assuming that you'd (at the very least) keep the same speed? If so/not, why?


Usually, I am way to lazy to set this up and just the unencrypted WiFi and fire up my VPN tunnel.

Benefit of being at a CCC event where no one offers unencrypted WiFi ... I configured wpa_supplicant with 802.1x on :)

That last boost, from @lilithsaintcrow ?

Yeah. That whole thread.

I have more pirate readers than buying readers.

I use Patreon and sell book sponsorships because I *have* to.

I'm having a birthday! 🎁

To celebrate, my first three books are Pay What You Want through the weekend. (That includes $0.00!)

If you like your #ScienceFiction mixed with lighthearted office drama, and some properly alien extraterrestrials, The Embassy series has you covered.

ABI breakage in DragonFly master

There's commits being made in DragonFly that will break binary compatibility.  If you are running DragonFly-master, that means you will need to do a full buildworld/buildkernel when updating, and you will either have to rebuild packages or wait some days until a new set are built.

If you are running the 5.6 release, you are unaffected.
