- Ungit: The Easiest Way to Use Git (2016-04-11)
The following post outlines my procedure to digitize two of my most frequently cookbooks.
While it’s actually nice to have the “real” cookbook open during the process of cooking as opposed to an Android tablet or iPad, which frequently needs to be unlocked to display the recipee again, it’s also really useful to have the recipee online as well. In particular if you’re away on a vacation, where you are doing the cooking yourself.
In an effort to learn more about IPv6 I created an IPv6 tunnel with SixXS in April 2013. The FRITZ!Box 6360 supplied by the TV cable operator, who also provides the internet access, has all the necessary setup options to operate this tunnel with SixXS in parallel to the standard IPv4 connection.
How to update the kernel on an Odroid C1, which is running off an USB hard disk as root-fs.
Of course in the beginning of the web everything started with managing your bookmarks within the browser. There wasn’t not too much content, that you couldn’t cope with it through the browsers bookmark management. However syncing your bookmarks between work and home was already a problem. At the time I used Xmarks.com, which was later bought by Lastpass. That would have been around 2006 and 2007.
Firefox was my browser of choice then, which must have been the versions 1.5 and 2.0.
This post basically lists the various stations of my bookmark keeping and explains, what I choose as my final solution.

Continuing the process of cleaning up the basement I found the original Nascom circuit diagrams. These diagrams originate from 1978 and I got the actual Nascom hardware beginning of 1981 second hand.
In my company I’ve basically completly moved to the Windows platform. My company is the typical Microsoft shop and since I’m doing more management stuff with slides and “official” documents Linux wasn’t simply an option any more. My company deploys a method to completly remotely install a PC/Laptop with all the required standard set of software. However there are those very nice to have programs like Notepad++, CCleaner or ConEmu, which make life under Windows bearable or if you want to add a programming language like Python or Ruby.
I’ve started the process of emptying my basement. There is still stuff there, that I’ve build during my apprenticeship years with the company then called “Nixdorf Computers”, basically my computer roots from more than 30 years ago. To remember everything I photographed every note worthy item. Then I will junk everything. My computer history started with a NASCOM 1 single board computer using the Z80 microprocessor. According to Internet wisdom, this board was designed in 1977 and then sold from 1978 onwards. The size was about a single A4 paper. I bought my system used from a friend of a friend in early 1981.
