Redneck repairing the sand digger

April 23rd, 2017

The screw holes holding the bucket had become worn out and since #3 wanted to use it right there and now and I had no disks available I had to find alternative solutions. So, found an old fish ball tin can, did cut of the bottom and did bend it around the bucket. Voila!! Ready for digging...

The last couple of days, done some garden tending. First pulling up a tree root, no problem when I have a tractor and plenty of tow rope.

#3 helping me out cutting the apple trees

Front loader is such a Swiss army knife, can be used for anything, also multiple garden tending tasks.

Always taking care of my own security, what could possibly go wrong here?

Bar and PSI

April 10th, 2017

At the gas station, needed to check the tyre pressure. New fancy digital way of setting the correct pressure, measured in PSI. The table on the side listing car brands and tyre pressure...measured in BAR. Good thing Google can tell me "how many bars in one psi..."

My latest book "The DevOps Handbook"

March 27th, 2017

This book is work related "The DevOps Handbook - How to create world-class agility, realiability & security in technolocy organizations". Provides a broad overview of important DevOps principles and for the first time I do believe that I really have understood what DevOps really means. From the conclusion wrapping up the book I qoute

DevOps requires potentially new cultural and management norms and changes in our technical practives and architecture. This requires a coalition that spans business leadership, product management, development, QA, IT operations, Information security and event marketing where many technology initiatives originate".

If working with anything IT related to operations, security or development I would recommend reading this book.
