  • Swap from Debian to Ubuntu as Linux image on Pixel Slate Chromebook

    This might be a little detailed for most, feel free to don your peril-sensitive sunglasses. So, no offence to Debian 9.6 Stretch, but the rest of the fleet runs Ubuntu, which is very similar, but, well, some packages are different.

  • Suicidal clouds cause consternation

    Another day another piece of infrastructure cowardly craps out. Today it was Google GKE.

When suddenly you read Hmm. Double whammy. You have been relying since 2018-07-18 on something which is not being updated (and daily rebuilding your […]
