It’s my personal blog
I’m working for Oracle. However this is my personal blog. I write it in my personal time. It runs on my personal infrastructure privately paid and not on Oracle infrastructure. It was this way since the beginning of this blog, so it didn’t run on Sun infrastructure as well.
I write everything here out of personal interest, to further my knowledge and my love to write things and explain things. Nothing in here is the opinion of my employer. Nothing in here is endorsed by my employer. Not even that i’m blogging.
The rules of this blogs are the same since the beginning of c0t0d0s0.org
- only public information
- everything you can read here you can read elsewhere or in public documentation. It’s just concentrating the information.
- i had always the rule that everything i’m writing must have been published elsewhere at least once.
- this is my blog, not the one of Oracle. So when i’m posting about an event of my employer, it’s because i’m talking there as it’s nice to meet my readers and this is the simplest way. I will not point to events where i’m not a speaker.
- no comments, not trackbacks. Essentially this is my braindump for my reference, just that i allow you to read my braindump. The original blog had comments and they just create problems.
It works for me
When i talk about ideas or solutions in this blogs consider it as an report about my own experiences. You are responsible to check everything i write by sufficient testing that it will fit into your situation as well before putting anything of it into production.
The dirty secret
Just because i got this question in the past: Despite being an blog mostly about Solaris, it is not running on SPARC or Solaris. At the moment it’s on two rented VMs in a cloud running Debian Linux. The reason for is simple: As it’s a personal spare time project it was easiest just to drop a plain vanilla Debian on a server back in 2004 and i kept it that way. Furthermore as this is a personal blog i wanted to be sure, that i don’t use any software licensed by a former or current employer that i just could use based on my employment status. Of course it’s not the same Debian of 2004, currently it’s Debian 10.
