So, okay. I’m writing all kinds of technical articles, that are almost like knowledgebase pages. I’m basically using this blog as a public documentation of different solutions I’ve found.
But then I’m also writing these slightly more personal blog posts, that aren’t exactly related to any technological solution per se. Some of them are personal professional updates, but some are actually more like rants.
2022 is over, and it’s high time to write the annual Year Review again. The ongoing pandemic and the 3rd World War on my doorsteps have made me a little bit cynical, but in all fairness, the year was not all bad. Last year, I promised a new article every Tuesday in 2022. I think I’ve just managed that, as long as this one actually goes out in time… But…Continue reading 2022 Year Review – Stop Caring & Just Enjoy The Ride!
Exciting news right after the Easter break (and a bit of a change from the usual flow of technical stuff) – I’ve joined the Omnia team at Precio Fishbone. Over the last 12 months, I have been working mostly on Azure IoT projects and was already debating renaming the blog. The title #SharePointProblems matches the content poorly when most of my new posts are about Docker, Azure DevOps, or Entity…Continue reading Joining the Omnia team!
I never thought that I would write an article on this site of mine about war, peace and a threat to not only an entire nation’s existence, but mine, too. But as this website has some reach (there’s around 75 000 of you each month), I feel that I have a responsibility to say and do something. On February 24th, 2022, the fascist oligarchy known as Russia attacked yet another…Continue reading Evil triumphs when good men do nothing
Well, it’s been a year. It certainly does not feel like it has been a whole 12 months since I last wrote one of these, you know? I failed every single one of the goals I set for 2021, but I’m not going to lie, family takes (and deserves) so much time that it is no wonder that our hobbies suffer a bit. But still – writing these year reviews…Continue reading 2021 – Year Review!
Okay, this might be my least general, and overall most pointless article ever, but I felt the need to document it anyway. Maybe it’ll help someone with a similar gadget, despite being a bit off-topic on this blog. Apologies to any regular visitors! So, what am I talking about, then? Recently I bought a radio-controlled projector clock as a gift for my wife. I reasoned that such a device would…Continue reading Resolving an incredibly pointless struggle with RCC
Long story short: My 6-year career with Valo is now coming to an end. Today was my last day at Valo. This is the longest I’ve ever worked at a company, and I’ve had the time of my life in the many positions I’ve held within Valo / Blue Meteorite. Rarely does a company offer you so many different possibilities and options – and let you grow into the role…Continue reading Of Course I Still #ValoLove You
Like is almost customary at this point in the year, I decided to take a look at 2020 – which goals I had set for myself if I hit them, and what happened on koskila.net during the year. And like last year, I thought I’d set myself a few new goals! In my last year review post, I commented on 2019: 2019 was borderline tumultuous – in 2020, I hope…Continue reading 2020 – Year Review
This article describes another fishy online offering I ran into, Spotify Premium Lifetime subscription. Long story short, it’s shady, but not necessarily a scam, per se. I definitely wouldn’t call it legit, though. Depending on the calibration of your moral compass, it might even be worth it, although definitely not recommended. But let’s take a closer look at what’s going on with this criminal affair, then! (If you’re in a…Continue reading Is Lifetime Spotify Premium legit?
In this article, I will be sharing my perspective and experiences with Worx Landroid L2000 – an autonomous lawn mower that I’ve had for about 2 summers now. Hopefully, I’ll be able to help someone else make an informed decision about getting a puppy like this. Anyway – a step back, the 10k-feet view first, as usual. Robot lawn mowers are slowly becoming a commodity, but choosing the right one…Continue reading Worx Landroid L2000 (WR155E) – an honest review
This topic seems to be on everyone’s mind right now: SharePoint Home Sites. They’re finally rolling out (again). Or maybe even rolled out, in case this article ends up late in my publishing queue! But what are they? How do you create SharePoint Home sites? How do you best use them in your organization? To take a step back, let’s first take a step upwards – to get the 1000-feet…Continue reading SharePoint Home Sites – a Game Changer?
