Everything that has a beginning…

…has an end. It’s one of my favorite quotes, I’ve even got it tattooed on my side. Although the quote isn’t really Buddhist, for me it signals one of its core teachings though and that is ‘impermanence‘. Everything is always changing and eventually comes to and end. But all these fancy words aside: this blog…

Hi Red Hat!

A Red Hat introduction. Recently (this May) I’ve passed the LFCS exam with the help of my friends of Linux Academy and switched jobs at the beginning of this month to a super professional Linux company. This spices things up a lot. At my former company, the choice of poison were Debian based distributions (Debian…

Short update on the 2019 plan

Short update post about a lot that has been going on and has or is about to change. This will affect the posts on cloudpro.zone so that’s the reason I’m updating you. These changes will most probably affect the post frequency and will for sure affect the post quality. Frequency because after marrying, we’re moving…

The plan for 2019

Yes! The plan for 2019 looks much clearer since my concluding post of 2018. I gave things some serious thoughts and came up with a neat little plan for 2019. As far as the blog is concerned, its’s simple. I’m doing a post every Saturday. Period. I’m not doing this blog to get a lot…

Blog future and holidays

For a while now I’ve been thinking about the future of this blog and I will thing some more about it in the coming holidays. This year was a good year. After a year of studying and landed my first Linux job where my practical knowledge skyrocketed tremendously. But I also noticed that it became…

Update and changes

Finally an update. After a break, I’m back, with probably some structural changes. February 2017 this blog started. Working in Apple related IT for 20 years, nearly dying in 2016 and recuperating in 2017, I decided to start a new adventure: Linux. Beginning with some basics in the form of CompTIA certifications, I signed up…

Certification path for 2018

Following my last post: what to do with certifications in 2018? What certification path to take? I’m still undecided to which route to go. But I have some thoughts. Last year has been absolutely ridiculous with certifications. I studied for and passed the exams for the CompTIA IT Fundamentals, CompTIA A+, LPI Linux Essentials, CompTIA…

Learning path for 2018

OK so big shift from CentOS to Debian coming up. What about knowledge? What will be my learning path for 2018? Last year I had the time to study a lot and I did. From almost zero Linux knowledge I’ve been learning a lot and I’m now installing Linux servers and services, maintaining a couple…

Connecting Linux, Zimbra and Thunderbird

There are a couple of things that are on my TO DO list for ages. A domainname, hosting, etc. of a company I once owned has to be phased out, a lot of collaboration data has to be migrated to my VPS and I want to be undependable of tech giants like Google and Apple….

CompTIA troubleshooting model

Following my random A+ rambling, I came across this during the first part of my A+ study and I think it’s good to get it on digital paper. CompTIA, like many others actually, introduced a troubleshooting model which every technician can follow to, well, do a good job. I’ve mixed the CompTIA approach with my…

Random A+ stuff

In about 3 days I’ve crammed some 40 hours of video, taking notes, then studying them. Oh and then immediately take the exam of course. All videos are from my friends at Pluralsight and in this case from the CompTIA A+ certification path they offer. I’ve always liked learning by videos but never took the…

Change of plans…

The A+ certification… My earlier planning is not going to happen, for now. This was it: Earn the LPI Linux Essentials certification – Exam code LPI 010-150 Earn the CompTIA Linux+ certification – Exam codes LX0-103 and LX0-104 The CompTIA Linux+ certifications earns me the LPIC-01 from LPI after following these instructions (at the bottom)…

Linux Essentials 010-150 Exam

OMG I’m taking the Linux Essentials 010-150 exam tomorrow…! It’s so crazy always when I’m having an exam, I’m always nervous but often pass with some good grades. Let’s hope this is the case now as well. Beginning this year I started out with this one. This was the planning so that means I’m right…

Linux Certifications

Okay. Linux certifications. I want to get Linux certified. Last January I took an online Linux essentials training that I liked, but it is not from a specific path. I’ve already seen a few certifications but which is best? Which to choose? I think training sites will help me because I haven’t been much of…
