I'm a father, musician, academic, work psychologist and former sysadmin. Skalman (Shellman) is a character in a Swedish comic for kids. He is an ingenious tortoise who invents all sorts of things, including spacecraft and time machines. He's also a know-it-all, and he slavishly follows his food-and-sleep clock (which is why people used to call me 'Skalman').

I toot as an academic/psychologist as @drbjork and as a musician as @bluebirch. I'm also in Swedish as @fenomenologen.

Wow, how simple it was to configure Synology Web Station with Apache, PHP and a Let's Encrypt certificate!

This is what I've been looking for! Web server administration made simple for old lazy sysadmins that no longer want to sysadmin!

Vangelis (Βαγγέλης), diminutive of Evangelos (Ευάγγελος), is a common Greek name. But outside Greece, there's only one #Vangelis.

I just got an email from my university computer club, of which I have been a member since more than 20 years, that our subdomain acc.umu will be killed because of, I don't know, legal reasons. Goodbye my oldest mail address that I have used for registering all over the internet with services I trust (the rest get my Google or Yahoo email). Goodbye this Mastodon instance. Goodbye history.

Not happy.

I miss certain very wholesome threads I made on the birdsite so I will take the liberty of recreating some of them here. This one is called ”Female relationships in pop culture that will stay with me forever”. You are welcome to add stuff if you want.

How do you add languages to Firefox? I don't know how many times I have tried to add other languages for the spell checker. But. It. Never. Works.

Is there a alternative to Doodle or When2Meet or similar services?
