Taking an Online Backup of a SAMBA-4 ActiveDirectory

Re-Enable TLS 1.0 for OpenSSL-based Clients on Debian Buster

OpenSSL shipped with Debian 10 „Buster“ disables TLS protocol versions below 1.2.

Auf macOS HTTP(S) ohne Entwickler-Werkzeuge protokollieren

Die Browser-Entwicklerwerkzeuge sind nett, aber der Netzwerktraffic-Reiter hat (insbesondere bei FF) ein Problem, er reisst die Performance so weit runter, dass einem das Gesicht einschläft. Auf macOS verwende ich „mitmproxy“, um HTTP und HTTPS zwischen Browser und Server zu protokollieren. Das Verfahren erfordert die Installation von „homebrew“ (ein Paket-Manager für macOS) und damit dann „mitmproxy“ […]

xdraw 1.1

I was very pleased to notice that my small Xlib-utility xdraw has made it across the years unscathed. It compiled after 11 years of complete lack of code or build system maintenance. Hail to the stability of the X Library! However, i found the visual quality of the drawing results a bit lacking – the […]
