Putting my bins out in the standard #Australian configuration, with recycling and kangaroos separated from general waste.

Verfassungsschutz braucht 450 Seiten Gutachten, um eine Partei zum "Prüffall" zu erklären, bei der man nun öffentliche Äußerungen auswerten möchte. Was zum Henker haben die dann bislang gemacht? Im Sitz geschaukelt?

Given that some CI-Systems and IDS currently are significantly impacted by the US-Government-Shitdown, take a moment to think about this:

Imagine if Let's Encrypt were run by the US-Government…

The free certificate authority, which is the largest and most widely used cert provider in the world is a significant single point of failure for IT systems all over our planet.

As much as I endorse their services, we MUST build equivalent alternatives in the EU, Asia, Africa, Oceania. #Neuland

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

TIL Sharing a LVM volume group with libvirt is a bad idea when there are also non-libvirt related LVs in the VG. You can't destroy (stop) and undefine the pool because libvirt insists of deactivating all of the LVs.

I meant to post a series of blog posts on various topics for some time now, let's begin with a small series on AutoYast tips and tricks. 0xf8.org/2019/01/autoyast-reta

Goodbye, "Halt and catch fire". It has been a pleasure. Excellent series on computer history of the 80s and 90s. Too bad there will be no season 5.

I just released v0.7 of my PiStripe uHAT PCB design. Enough planning, I think I'll send it off to the PCB manufacturer now. github.com/pief/PiStripe_uHAT

aha...die Management-Studenten haben jetzt die "Makerbewegung" entdeckt und hätten gerne Leute die ihre Umfrage ausfüllen.
Kann ich schon machen.

TIL you can't snapshot libvirt VMs that use UEFI instead of BIOS

Heute (!) kommt das KBA-Schreiben für ein Auto, das im Dezember verkauft wurde. Sicher noch mit der Schreibmaschine erzeugt.

Ordered a NEC Multisync EA271Q: 2560x1440, USB-C _and_ USB-A inputs switched together with Video, USB-C power delivery, DP, HDMI and DVI inputs, input switching key directly accessible. And no, I don't want 4K.

In Mainz im Eisgrub und ich bin einfach nicht mehr diese nervig laut gackernden, gröhlenden Leute gewohnt.
