stackoverflow.careers

Posted on

Surprise! I’ve got a job offer on stackoverflow.careers. I got a invitation for that career website quite a long time ago when that thing was still beta and I thought european companies are more addicted to monster, linked.in and xing when it comes to recruitment needs. Maybe that offer is a hint that this fresh […]

Evil gitlab update…

Posted on

During the weekend I’ve managed to bring down my webserver and my gitlab service, due to a failed gitlab update. Well, the install script of the new gitlab version did some not so good things, which prevented me from updating without hassle. But after all I’ve just put two projects up there, which were easily […]

Shellshock

Posted on

First Heartbleed, now Shellshock. The new big bugs in important libraries/software have their own ‘brand’ name now. A bit crazy and a bit overkill in my opinion, but at least now such bad security holes are getting enough attention to be fixed FAST, hopefully. I’ve updated my server immediately after good patches were available, so […]

Laptop crash during update

On Friday I finally learned how to f*** up my laptop. Just unplug it accidentally during running a system update with “pacman -Su”. Result: kernel panic on reboot, no help until I found a USB stick containing a archlinux image.

Setting up gitlab on archlinux behind an apache

Posted on

Setting up gitlab is quite straight forward on archlinux, following this article. The wiki article even mentions the procedure to run gitlab behind an apache https proxy. The only thing I’ve missed was the hint for changing the base url of gitlab so that a repository link would work with the correct domain instead of […]

StartSSL certified

Now my domain mmo.to and all subdomains are certified by StartSSL. Hopefully never again you have to make a ssl certificate exception within your browser.  🙂 Nice service from StartSSL, the whole personal validation was done within 3 hours, and the next day I was able to generate my ssl certificates. And of course I […]
