I just came across a task, that I thought would be the usual daily duty for every Puppet administrator: Managing users in a htpasswd file. For whatever reason, this is neither supported in the fairly official Apache module nor via a puppet user resource – or it isn’t documented well. However, the apache module contains a
Using a macOS laptop with various available screen configurations is cumbersome. MacOS tries its best to reset the application windows to the state the screens were attached last time, but some vendors seem to find ways to break that feature. And there currently is no good window manager available, who supports windows on multiple spaces
I recently got an E-Mail from my invoicing software provider, saying that they will be discontinuing their 5.95€ per month rate and in exchange will put me on the 9,95€ per month rate with additional features I didn’t actually need. That was enough pressure to make my rounds on the open source market for invoicing
Socko 2.0.0 has officially landed. After some weeks of development and production testing it is time to give 2.0.0 a go. And with this release, the main Socko-package isn’t alone anymore. It has become a platform and consists of packages like js-hierarchy: The main tree wrangler file-hierarchy: A js-hierarchy implementation for the file system socko-converter-file:

Developing for the IntelliJ platform is sometimes a bit hard, because I’m used to have a API-documentation for reference, but somehow Jetbrains didn’t provide one for the platform. Looking at their sources over at github, I found, that
You probably know these times, where you look at an old project (even if it’s just a year old) and get the urge for refactoring – or even rewriting. Socko is such a project. Socko was crafted together in a short time, refactored to at least make it a bit more manageable and released. Now,
Jetbrains Teamcity is a brilliant continuous integration and deployment platform. Being a modern platform, it also provides a REST api. But sadly, the API documentation is, well… something. But it seems, as if Jetbrains is getting there. There’s an undocumented endpoint in the API, that provides a swagger API description file. So, until Jetbrains hosts
I’m responsible for taking out the trash. Yes, this is a cliché, I admit it. But it is like it is. The problem with that isn’t the trash itself, but rather that I’m really bad with remembering dates. But luckily, my home town’s disposal company offers an iCal download of the pickup dates on their website.
