This is the German version of „Peopleware: Productive Projects and Teams“. This book was first published 1987 and then got the last update 2013. But it’s funny that the problems are still the same. It’s like people didn’t change that much. 😉

Reading a book from 2008 about a family of languages that existed for (back then) fifty years and it couldn’t be more relevant to me.

It doesn’t get much hackier today. Running performance benchmarks on a and I still don’t have a proper cooling. So I grabbed an old fan and attached it to a 12V power supply from an old router.

This is Oscar. Oscar is a t410 and part of my setup. I’m mainly using it for SSH connections and to search for stuff on the internet. So no heavy workloads. Sadly Oscar became painfully slow with the latest releases, so I decided to replace the HDD with an SSD. Boy is that thing fast now. 🚀
And the best part: Replacing the HDD couldn't be simpler. There should be more laptops like the ThinkPad t series!

Here we go. Now all of the trees in the forest can fall on my landline. I’ve got a backup! 😂

I need a backup for DSL connection, so I was looking to outdoor LTE modems and found this ALFA Networks Tube-U4Gv2-E.

The good news: It's working out of the box with .

The bad news: My is not recognizing it. It says it's an unknown device. Anybody with an advice?

This is the energy consumption of one of my rack servers while spinning up and down some virtual machines while performing some tasks. As you can see, the difference is not that big. So having a big machine for only a single purpose that isn't leveraging the whole machine is pure waste.

Heavy weapon warning. 

A git repo for sources, one for docs, one for issues and one for pull request. This is Pagure from . And since everything is in git repos, you can use tools like pag-off to take everything offline with you… and not only the sources.

TIL: The @opensuse transactional server is using overlays for /etc since some time. 👍

I'm I seeing anybody here at the openSUSE Conference this weekend in Nürnberg Germany?

Sometimes I'm doing weird stuff. Yes, it is a blow dryer in the background. I'm running Python benchmarks. Explains everything - right? 😃

And here is the next addition to the : A trusty old HP600, which will primarily be use for containers. LXD, Docker, and Kubernetes.

Every online service should have that feature! In this case it's Telegram.

Every morning this really, really sad cyclops is greeting me. Please @kde, can't you make him happy! 😉

Setting up KVM is a no-brainer. Just installing the packages is enough. Really couldn't be easier. And since I don't want to do everything via CLI, you can see libvirt in combination with virt-manager here in action.
Next thing on the list is making this reproducible with .
