The status of my just changed to "in delivery"
Seems like I'll be getting my hands on it today. Folks, I am actually exited about that. Also be advised, there will most likely be a lot of toots about it starting tomorrow (or tonight if I find the time)

Spent the day in Linz helping a friend setup his Nextcloud and syncing his devices to it, visited my grandparents afterwards, was a good day. Oh also I got to ride an ICE train in both directions. Still fascinated by these beauties :)

Given a little more time with fedora silverblue, I do have to say battery life is impressive. I do hope they iron out their issues and get that beast into a usable daily driver. We might be looking at the future of what an os will be like here. Immutability, good hardware support and minimal usage of resources is a great start, I see why my employee is so passionate about it. Getting more software to flawlessly work with it will be the next step

„In the pale moonlight“ is, at least to me, the best 45 minutes in TV history. You can actually feel how Sisko went the way he did and most likely would have done the same thing in that circumstance. The path to hell is paved with good intentions as they say

Vic Fontaine is my favourite Star Trek character ever. Tooted only because I just listened to James Darren on the radio...

Here is a thing about me and my company. If you are my employee and come to me with an idea on how to improve something, I will listen to you. I will even put in the resources needed to check out that idea if it seems feasible to me. If I say no and you prove me wrong, I will recheck. My employees are brilliant people and I make a point of listening to them. But Fedora Silverblue is not yet ready for us. Currently I can't close vs-code...
I love the idea behind it, maybe in an year....

Just two ThinkPads running two brilliant distroa next to each other....

A friend of mine is starting her journey into company ownership next week. She‘ll visit me in an hour for a couple of tips and a coffee. Also, since I am a hobby photographer she asked me to take a portrait of her for her business card. Haven‘t done that for a while so I am currently playing around with my equipment trying to remember how everything works. Feels good to be getting back into that hobby though :)

Is it just me or are flatpaks taking way longer to install?

I have to alter my statement towards fedoa sb, the issue with nomachine was only happening within virtual box. As my employee pointed out, a regular install works just fine. So it is definitely back in the run.Kinda hope it works out fine from now on, since I like the basic idea behind it.

@mike @kev @Gina Guys, Lady, I recently read through the code of conduct and found I violated it twice, once posted in german, once used, lets say colourful language, without CW. Promise it won't happen again....

On top of an approaching deadline, we seem to be running into issues with nomachine lately. Keyboard input is not processed correctly on multiple machines...
If my hair turns grey any time soon, it is not because of age...

I set up a shortcut to open the filebrowser in gnome. It's super + e
Am I a heretic now?

And in good news today: my made it through customs. It's not with the postal service yet, but my hopes are high, I'll be holding it in my hands next week. Also still don't know how they will tax it

My grandmother turned 81 today, so the entire family met at her place, took here out to dinner an celebrated a little. It was a very nice evening. I am now back at home, enjoying a glass of brunello di montalcino and the music of John Lennon. February was sofar quiet stressful for me, I really needed a day like this...

Ok, Fedora Silverblue is a great os, rock solid and stable. Sadly nomachine does not work properly yet and we use is on a daily basis.
So were are not going to use it on our new dev machines.
Most likely we'll be using Ubuntu 20.04 lts after it is out and about...
