Revisiting 2014

Thursday, January 1st, 2015

Business: Attended only four conferences (FOSDEM, Linuxdays Graz, DebConf and Flowcon) due to taking care of my child each Tuesday and Friday (so it wasn’t easy to attend conferences during the week, and weekends are usually family time for me nowadays) Home office/remote work: this year was very remote work and home office focused because […]

Revisiting 2013

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

2013 was a fantastic year for me. Following the real-life fork it was the first year of my daughter’s life. Whenever I heard people saying “oh, children are growing sooooo fast” in the past it felt like a lie for me, but seeing your own child grow I can just sign that, and it’s fantastic. […]

Revisiting 2012

Tuesday, January 1st, 2013

2012 was a very special year for me, so it’s worth some words. In April the Grazer Linuxtage event took place, being one of the major IT events in Austria nowadays. I’m one of its original founders and after being part of the main organisation team for ten times I decided to leave the organisation […]

Sunday, May 29th, 2011

4489 days later we did it, on 21st of May Marianne and I got married. Turned out it became a pretty geeky marriage, as Grml 2011.05-rc1 with codename “Just Mari” was released during the ceremony (thanks guys!), I had to solve a nice groom quiz and our event had its own hashtag on twitter. Thanks […]

Rest in Peace, Maxi

Abbruch… Aufbruch… 2008

Monday, April 14th, 2008

Ein bisschen etwas in eigener Sache, was schon länger in den Drafts liegt: Nach über 5 Jahren als Sysadmin am Institut für Unternehmungsführung und -organisation an der TU Graz ist es Zeit für einen Tapetenwechsel. Am 14. Jänner habe ich meinem Chef meine Entscheidung mitgeteilt und mit Ende Juni 2008 läuft mein aktueller Arbeitsvertrag aus. […]

Re: I am only mad on IRC

Tuesday, April 8th, 2008

Martin, sorry for calling you Madduck on the debian.ch-mailinglist. Luckily I didn’t use that name during our meeting in Zurich last week. *pfuh* ;) To take part in the pdo-game with my own name (being Michael Prokop ;-)): as many of you might know I’m known as Mika in the community. The name was invented […]

Wie man jemandem im Internet schaden kann…

Sunday, March 9th, 2008

Aufklärung startet im Kleinen, im Bekannten- und Verwandtenkreis. In einer Diskussion rund um die Vorratsdatenspeicherung und die immer verstärkter aufkommende Videoüberwachung habe ich verschiedene Szenarien aufgezeigt. Ein Szenario davon war, dass man durch Data-Mining und diverse Web 2.0-Dienste immer gläserner wird. Und zwar muss man dafür gar nicht erst seine eigene Homepage ins Web stellen. […]

Nein, auch das Wort Kamikaze finde ich nicht lustig.

Ganz großes Kino. Es ist ja nicht so, dass die TU Graz nicht über 9.000 Studenten hätte: Dieser Zustand ist schon seit mehreren Stunden der Normal-Zustand….

Nein, dieses Wort mag ich nicht. Noch weniger aber mag es meine Highlighting-Regex im IRC-Client.

Dr. House – DVD: 2. Staffel

Wednesday, September 26th, 2007

Über die 1. DVD von Dr. House habe ich ja vor längerem schon mal geschrieben. Seit ein paar Wochen gibt es die 2. Staffel der Serie. Als Anhänger der Serie kann ich nichts negatives über den Inhalt selbst sagen (wobei House immer menschlicher wird ;-)) – definitiv ein must-have-seen. Allerdings ist die Qualität der DVD […]

Friday, August 3rd, 2007
