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:
- “Something happened on our end” on Microsoft StoreThis article explains how to make your Microsoft Store (the app distribution channel on Windows – the one that’s supposed to distribute apps reliably and keep them up-to-date) work after it has suddenly stopped updating or installing any apps with a very non-descriptive error – “Something happened on our end”.…Continue reading “Something happened on our end” on Microsoft Store
- How to fix OnePlus 10 Pro Bluetooth issuesIn a bit different news, this time I’m sharing my preferred Bluetooth configuration that makes using headphones (or are they called “earpods” now?) bearable. It’s required some experimentation, but I did finally find a combination that doesn’t cause the audio to be laggy or janky. Problem For over a year,…Continue reading How to fix OnePlus 10 Pro Bluetooth issues
- How to actually uninstall conflicting PowerShell modules?This article explains how to resolve “Import-Module: Assembly with same name is already loaded” error in PowerShell (and a couple of related issues – old versions of the module being used, updating modules silently failing, uninstalling modules simply not doing anything…) Problem Different error messages you might get (obviously the…Continue reading How to actually uninstall conflicting PowerShell modules?
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 nowadays has around 70 000 visitors monthly. 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 robot . 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.
You can also see a list of all my sessions and session materials.
No upcoming engagements. I’ve cut down traveling due to the pandemic.
