I am not what you would consider a “Pro User” for git. Not at all. I would classify myself as an intermediate user. But even as an intermediate user, things can get pretty ugly and inconvenient when you only rely on the standard Git console client.

In the past I used a self-built Docker container that was running easy-rsa with a customized openssl.cnf file. This got very annoying, very quickly, as I needed to import my private CA to all systems I wanted to use it on.

Chernobyl is one of the best shows I have seen in the past couple of years. After I watched it, I asked myself how much of it was „real“ and how much of it was „fiction“. Surprisingly, it was very real, with a lot attention to detail. In Germany, it is available on Sky.

Well, some companies have just switched from their on-premise Exchange installation to Office365 and OneDrive. Maybe they should have listened to their engineers about the ongoing problems with Microsoft's cloud offering.

It has been a while that a piece of stand-up has caught me so off-guard and took me on a real journey. It was funny, so it left me entertained, but it also left me thoughtful and pensive, and at the end deeply moved. Definitely watch it till the end as it has a build-up and a twist.
