v6 only

Some people may not be able to read this post because this blog as no A record anymore. I don’t care if you don’t have IPv6. It’s 2016.

For those of you who can read this: I’ll try to write some technical posts about Icinga2, libvirt/kvm and other stuff in the future.

I’m old

I just update my bio on the Froscon website an noticed that I’m getting paid for system and network administration for 20 year.

BTW: I’m giving a presentation at this years Froscon about automating Icinga2 (e.g. using Ansible/Puppet for deployment and the API for managing your monitoring config).

The Phoenix Project

The advantage of not having a project right now is that I can catch up on my reading.

A couple of day ago I finished The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win.

Bill Palmer is freshly promoted head of IT operations. He runs into many problems most of you will know: People not talking to each other, processes that and tools that are too complicated to use, people just doing what they think is is right, gurus with no time to document things.

The book shows Bills way from total chaos to a productive work

BTW: I started using Kanban for myself two weeks ago (again). I’ll add a post about this after a month of using it.

Weather

some one showed me a nice way to see the weather report for the next day.Just use curl wttr.in/txl Replace txl with your airport code or city name.

Also works in a GUI web browser but everybody can do that. 😉
