I think I am a little bit late, but I finally took the plunge and am now the (hopefully) proud owner of a smartwatch. Not sure how smart this little gizmo is, but at least it looks neat. But first to the decision itself. It is not, that I don’t have a watch. Actually, I […]
Let me try something new. Just some nice pictures from our Labor Day weekend in Calabash, NC. Nothing special… just pictures.
It was that time of the year, when I had to renew some SSL certificates. Renewing and updating them in the server is a nice and easy process. But checking, whether the server is delivering the correct certificate and, that I updated and popluated the intermediate certificates correctly, is a different story. For websites it […]
While debugging my check disk problem after the 15.10 upgrade, I saw that I forgot to enable external commands. That is handy, when you want to re-schedule a check to see, if your changes took effect. Again, something that is easily activated. So if you see something like this, then you might want to make […]
Another day another foo, this time done to the check_disk plugin for Nagios on Ubuntu. After updating to 15.10 my disk space check all of a sudden failed with this one here: DISK CRITICAL – /sys/kernel/debug/tracing is not accessible: Permission denied It seemed a little odd, especially when I could access that file normally before.

It seems that Microsoft’s products creating more and more foos. This time it is Lync, also known as Skype for Business. It is okay, that Lync uses the Enter key to send a message or the CTRL-Enter combination start a call. But it is not okay that there is no way to change these key […]
Windows continues to kick my behind. Out of the blue the Windows 8.1 installation on my workstation didn’t want to open the store app. Not that I really need or want it. But the same happened for the settings app, which was a little bit of a problem. I should have taken a screenshot but […]
I was using SquirrelMail and the Sieve plugin avelsieve for quite a while. And I once made the commitment on the mailing list to do some further development on avelsieve to make it work with newer PHP versions and fix other problems. The result was my own little update and some not yet released stuff […]
