Using on a Mac

If you like the nice curses based „Finder“ from the unix world called „Midnight commander“ and would like to use the supplied, that changes the current working directory to mc’s last selected one, you’re a bit lost on the Mac platform, because it doesn’t work.

Goodbye, skd!

I'm going to discontinue [skd](, though it has never reached a productive version. I'm sorry. skd was born out of the idea of a small and easy way for a very basic configuration management. However, tools like [Puppet]( or [Ansible]( are doing a much better job at it and everybody's using them, so skd has Read More

New website

Well… You know, I've always been an advocate for the wonderful [Dokuwiki]( and used it as a CMS for my website. However, I found, that my website's mostly about the blog and all other pages are constantly outdated.

Printing from Windows to a printer shared printer on a Mac

Last week I’ve set up my new home server based on a Mac Mini and obviously Mac OS X (Mavericks). What can I say? Like I expected, everything went like a breeze… Well, until I configured my wife’s PC laptop with Windows 7. I have shared the printer to all my Macs with no problem, Read More

August website cleanup

I’ve done some cleanup here and removed the bilingual setup as I noticed, that I’m only writing english posts. So I threw away all the clutter (although the german version of the CV is still reachable). And I made the people sad, who like my adaption of the zenlike template, because I switched to a Read More
