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, 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.

      In MRNA vaccines and Clarke’s Law: JESUS FUCKING HOLY GODDAMNED SHITBALLS Cory Doctorow writes about the new mRNA vaccines:

      If you convert a single closet in a conventional factory to mRNA production, it will make more doses than the rest of the factory combined. Only part of the factory needs to be a high-spec cleanroom facility, and the rest can be cheaper and more easily maintained.

      This new technology is indeed fucking amazing!

      An interesting article about the dispassionate developer. The author claims that we should not be passionate about our work.

      As you start to ponder the implied ethos, the stranger it gets. Would you like engineers to be passionate as they design new bridges? Would you like a surgeon to be passionate as she operates on you? Would you like judges to be passionate as they pass sentence on your friend?

      I’d like such people to care about their vocation, but I’d prefer that they keep a cool head and make as rational decisions as possible.
