Christian Kruse

Welcome. On this page you can find my software projects, my articles, my notes and my pictures.

My name is Christian Kruse. I work as a software developer and system administator at Termitel GmbH. I live in Germany in a small town called Steinfurt.

I am passionate about software development, GNU/Linux, FLOSS as well as macOS. I am also a do-it-yourself apologetic: I did a lot of things in and around my house myself. I love the hacker culture. And last but not least I am a dog owner.

This is my personal replacement for Twitter, Facebook and the other data silos. My content is mine — so if you are interested in my activity, just have a look at this page.

    • Christian Kruse,

      I have to admit: I’m bored. Due to the „stay at home“ policy and most of the things being closed I need a new side project. Something which gives me the opportunity to learn Rust would be nice. Has anybody a good idea?

      It’s fascinating to see how Intel has one PR desaster after the other and still manages to earn record high revenues

      Note to myself: UPDATE tbl SET foo = fun(id) in a trigger is a bad idea 😜

      TIL: in Emacs you can persist the helm-rg result list with M-b. This opens a persistent buffer with the list of search results.

      A repost of

      Too many people have joined the chorus of cacophonous conversations online about booting Richard Stallman from the free software movement. They claim that his social behavior has prevented more people from joining. There are conspiracy theories claiming a hit job by an evil corp. The point that everybody misses is that Stallman’s views on software don’t matter anymore.

      A very interesting article about how the views of the FSF and Stallman completely ignore the essential problems in IT and society in current day and age.
