Kaum werde ich in einer Support-Mail gesiezt, springt mein Hirn in de_formal. Spuckt schönstes ordentliches Deutsch aus, mit "wenngleich" und "zögern Sie nicht" und allem drum und dran.

I wrote a blog post about my @fosdem experience this year.

I wrote it on the train home, but only just got around to putting it online.

You make a motion and bring file into existence. The file is firm to the touch, its digital surface slightly yielding and reassuring. It contains zero bytes, but you know that it is there.

~ Welcome to adsh, the adventure shell ~

You are in your home directory. Your internet connection is stable.

Nearby, you can see many files, such as note.txt, .adshrc, and feb_10_2020_syn.wav.

You have tools curl, vim, and python3.

Possible exits are ., .., Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Pictures, and web_site.

Due to the infrastructure migration yesterday, instead of running an ansible playbook to update pretalx (with a service interruption of ~30s), I can now just run

ssh <host> sudo -Su <pretalx_user> px update <version>

And it will update the production to the new version or commit, and switch to it seamlessly. 😍

Zur 2019 wurde kawie von Security in der Straßenbahn von Karlsruhe schwulenfeindlich beleidigt. Die Angestellten wurden gefeuert und haben Anwälte eingeschaltet, um kawie ein zweites Mal zu belästigen - diesmal juristisch.

My server/PC naming scheme is "oddly appropriate literary characters". One of my first laptops was called Smaug, because it was very fickle and prone to running hot.

The new staging system is called Will, because all the world's a stage, and I'm unreasonably satisfied with this.

My production system used to run on two application servers (until two hours ago), inevitably called Gred and Forge.

Oops. I forgot to CW sexism in the GitLab post earlier. Apologies to all, it was unintentional and I'll try to remember in the future.

My sudoers files (plural!) and SSH config have vastly improved from reading SSH Mastery and Sudo Mastery, too.
