Followup to my job-hunt rant from December
In the time since then, I got 5 offers from various companies.
I accepted the highest paying one.
Today is my first day as a (mostly linux) system engineer for a renowned e-learning company.1
Hey people, I could use your help on deciding which of 2 job offers to take.
- same city as me right now
- around 30 minutes commute total per day
- average salary (for my experience)
- tasks: infrastructure, windows, Linux
- 30 days vacation
- financial sector
- one city over
- around 2 hour commute per day (but home office is possible after the introduction period)
- pays 600 euros more than offer 1 (greatly above average entry salary, for me)
- tasks: infrastructure, mostly linux
- 27 days vacation
- e-learning industry
Both jobs are in the German state of Saxony.
This will be my first full-time job, since I finished my apprenticeship last year.9
What do you think about Powershell on Linux?
I personally like PS quite a lot, on windows. It quickly became one of my favorite languages, during my apprenticeship.
I also have an everburning hatred for python, so PS is kinda enticing to me.8
I finally got my new home server.
A Lenovo ThinkCentre M720q in one of the higher configurations.
Any ideas what top level OS I should put on it?
ATM, I'm thinking Proxmox, ESX or Alpine.
I like proxmox because of the neat UI for everything but I'm kinda worried about how it basically takes the most important parts of the system over.
I like Alpine since I already use it for quite a while as my goto server OS and because of AWALL, which IMHO is the best linux server firewall.
I didn't get to evaluate ESX yet.6
The next motherfucking asshole, that says there is a shortage of trained IT personnel in Germany, will get their eyeballs ripped out and squished back into their mouth.
I've got my trade degree in mid August. since then I've been without a job. The first 2 months where, bevause my former employer took ages to create my work-certificate (document that shows that you actually worked there and what you did).
Since then, I applied to a multitude of companies and got denied for various reasons. My favorite was "seems unmotivated".
The number of open IT positions is directly correlated to the collective assholelishness and entitlement of HR/management.27
What are some good tiny/mini/micro computers for a homelab?
My requirements would be
- 8GB RAM or upgradable to such
- upgradable ssd
- can install linux distros on it15
Had my first Interview in more than 3 years.
What an adrenaline rush!
I'm feeling like I just rockclimbed an active volcano.
Heyo, I got a last-minute interview tomorrow as a Windows Admin for the datacenter and pc-pools of a university in my state.
This will be my first interview for a real job, after my apprenticeship, and my second interview overall.
You got any tips for what I should prepare or what questions I should ask?2
I passed my final exam for my trade degree. Now I'm officially qualified as an IT-Administrator.4

Python: Turning compile-time errors into runtime bugs.3
Have a look at my new project.
It's a docker container to deploy a wireguard interface.
Why would you do something like this you ask, well there's actually 2 main reasons.
1. Distributing wireguard configuration over k8s/swarm/whatever.
2. Bringing up wireguard Interfaces automatically, on systems that don't support that normally, eg. Alpinelinux.2
The external SSD or it's adapter, of my homelab, shat itself.
I only set it up 2 weeks ago.1
It baffles me, that most HTTP apps still can't run on multiple domains at a time.
Is it actually that difficult to have a request header, which is set by the reverse proxy, containing the prefix url?!4
So, german long distance trees are called ICE/IC (Intercity/-Express).
The wifi there, if any, is called WIFIonICE.
My stupid brain immediately thought of a musical with dancing routers and switches in tights.7
I already searched for a while and couldn't find a viable solution.
I setup a service with docker-compose, and published it on port 80.
However port 80 is only published on ipv4 networks, not ipv6.
How can I make docker publish the service on ipv6 networks as well.1
Is it normal, that a newly bought laptop, has a wrong BIOS time set?
The one on my thinkpad was nearly an hour off.3
Damn, Square Enix hasn't even released Bravely Default 2 yet, but they are already publishing the demo for their next awesome game.3
Hey guys ,
I just finished the first specification of a format I call CommandFile.
It's a configuration file format, largely designed after dockerfile with bits of TOML.
Can anyone of you, who is more well versed in writing specifications than me, read over the spec and check if it's concrete enough and if restrictions are reasonable?4
I think the Golang serialization API is utter garbage.
By convention it usually looks like this,
This means that all serialization and deserialization is done on, heap allocated, in memory buffers ( technically also mmaped files, but thats not cross platform).
As the Go GC is ruthlessly optimized for minimum latency, this can potentially cause memory leaks in long running applications.
I think we need a new serialization API that looks more like
I finally got fprintd to work on my laptop.
It's awesome to authorize sudo and polkit with a tap to the scanner rather than typing my passphrase again and again.
Did some of your repos get included into githubs Arctic Codevault?
My dotfiles got included, so future generations can, after a nuclear apocalypse, see my shitty i3 config.7
Fuck this shit.
I got tested positive this morning.
I might have accidentally infected my parents and my colleagues.23
Do you know some websites where I can get good dev/tech stickers.
My new Thinkpad X1 Carbon arrived a few days ago and I want to ruin it's neat professional design with some weaponised cringe.
I'm gonna go get the large pack from Unix stickers, but I'm also searching for other sources.5
I just found out, there is a GCC flag that prevents you from using integers in a bool context in C.
Not only is this the original "bool" implementation of C, but it's also a widespread concept for use in NULL checks and the likes.5
Whatcha thinking about the
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8
(i7-10510U, 16GB, 512GB, 1080p)?
Found one for a dirt cheap price (campus discount) and think about buying it.
I'm largely using linux, including somewhat exotic distros like Void,Gentoo, Alpine.2
To everyone who writes acronyms in identifiers in all-caps.
Fuck you, you fucking piece of shit.
You're mom's a hoe and so are you.3
