20 years of *NIX stuff

May 8th, 2016 by TheBonsai


yesterday I celebrated my 36th birthday (yes, I really got old..!).

What I suddenly realized was that I also can look back on 20 years of Linux and UNIX passion. I don’t know the exact day, so I just declared it to be on my birthday!

So, also celebrating 20 years of personal *NIX passion!

Happy anniversary Jan and *NIX 😉

Linux Presentation Day 2015 bei Linux User Group Mitterteich

November 15th, 2015 by TheBonsai

Die Linux User Group Mitterteich hat sich – meiner Meinung nach mit Erfolg – am Linux Presentation Day 2015 beteiligt.

Danke an unsere Organisatoren und Helfer, die den Tag vorbereitet und durchgeführt haben – das war echt klasse gemacht!

Good morning, it’s Wednesday, 05:00 UGT

October 21st, 2015 by TheBonsai

Finally someone solved the timezone trouble of global communications!


UGT (abbr.): Universal Greeting Time.
UGT is convention initially established in #mipslinux on (now but slowly taking over the world. It states that it is always morning when person comes into a channel, and it is always late night when person leaves. Local time of any member of channel is irrelevant. Resistance is futile. Your ass will be laminated. (geoman is exception to this rule – his ass will be fried instead).

Used as follows:
Good (UGT) Morning, Everyone! or good morning (ugt) (on entry to channel).
Good (UGT) Night – when leaving it.

The idea behind establishing this convention was to eliminate noise generated almost every time someone comes in and greets using some form of day-time based greeting, and then channel members on the other side of the globe start pointing out that it’s different time of the day for them. Now, instead of spending time figuring out what time of day is it for every member of the channel, we spend time explaining newcomers benefits of UGT.


Thanks for this, and good (UGT-)night!
