I’m a Finnish Software Developer Entrepreneur living as a hermit on the beautiful Finnish countryside. Koskila.net is my personal professional (i.e. professional, but definitely personal) website.

On this site, I’m blogging about all kinds of exciting and/or tricky topics. Mostly just to write them down for myself.
See a few of my latest blog articles below:
- How to install the Classic Teams for Business client?This article explains briefly and straightforwardly (and in a frustrated tone, the reasons of which you might already know) how to install the Classic Microsoft Teams for Business client, instead of the “new” client. I doubt the method will work for very long, but we’ll see. Background The new Microsoft…Continue reading How to install the Classic Teams for Business client?
- This simple registry key will make your Windows computer 11.5% faster!A’ight, it’s a clickbait title, but it’s also almost true. See, if you’re like me, you’re also sick and tired of Windows shoving Edge and Bing down your throat every time you search for something on your PC or click a system link? Do you want to find your files…Continue reading This simple registry key will make your Windows computer 11.5% faster!
- How to remove files in a SharePoint library?This article explains how you can remove a big batch of files from a library using either the UI or PnP PowerShell. And when I say “big”, I mean, roughly, “as many as possible”, without removing the library or touching the folders in it. I’m not trying to speedrun SharePoint,…Continue reading How to remove files in a SharePoint library?
- How to solve “error TS2354: This syntax requires an imported helper but module ‘tslib’ cannot be found.” when running npm build scripts?This article explains a solution to another dumb issue I ran into when checking out someone else’s repository and trying to build and run the solution. I’m calling the issue “dumb” because it’s not like I’m practicing rocket surgery here. And the solution isn’t particularly high-flying either. Then again, neither…Continue reading How to solve “error TS2354: This syntax requires an imported helper but module ‘tslib’ cannot be found.” when running npm build scripts?
What’s koskila.net about?
The tagline for my blogging efforts has been Solutions are worthless unless shared for quite a while already. That’s to say, since I’ve gotten a lot of help from the community whenever I’ve had issues getting something to work, I like to give something back. This blog is my way of doing that.
Blogging has been a great, lightweight way to sort my thoughts and document weird fixes and findings along the way. And boy, has there been a lot of them! Microsoft’s stack always keeps surprising me – mostly in a positive way, but there’s an occasional bump on the way too.
A lot of people seem to struggle with the same issues, as the blog recently had just shy of a million visitors in a year. Mind-blowing. May you find my thoughtful workarounds as useful as I have!
In addition to more technical posts, sometimes I might post about my sessions at different community events, or experiences as an expat living in a foreign country (in 2017, that country was the USA, in 2018 & 2019 Canada). Right before the pandemic, I moved back to Finland to live in the middle of a forest. Quite literally, as I need to somewhat regularly scare moose away or they’ll eat our apples and trample my robots. Our pests are large.
Back in the olden days, when the world was not on fire, I used to travel to different events. Now it’s all digital, which is… Not quite the same.
