I wrote this in an online meeting at work today, and thought I'd inflict on the fediverse. The topic is striving for excellence.

I've learnt through bitter experience that it's rarely possible to fix
all problems at once. What works, in my experience, is frequent small
improvements. The trick is to have a vision of where one wants to end
up in, and every day find the next step towards that. And it's OK for
the vision to also change. This applies to life as well as software

The Morris Worm was 30 years ago today.

I was working as the network admin at EuroPARC, the European satellite lab of Xerox PARC.

Infosec was born that day. :)

Operating four layers of virtual machines and abstractions deep, syscalls become so expensive, the kernel actually started invoicing me... 😂

I always thought of myself as a quite unemotional person, without the ability
to get the concept of faith or religion. All the bigger my surprise, when I
found myself in the Greenwich Observatory in front of all those clocks,
calendars, and scientific stellar diaries. I think my feelings there must have
been quite similar to faith. In mankind.
