Since I’m personally affected by the Citybee “hack” (it’s actually not even a hack, read on to find out why), I decided to put some info together in this post to make sense of it. I will try to update it as soon as I get more info myself. The information is not authoritative, but I will do my best to at least add arguments and source of information. Situation Evening 2021.02.15, Facebook groups started alerting about the leaked Citybee database (a database dump was…Continue Reading “Citybee hacked, database leaked.”

Ubuntu 14.04 update to PHP7.4 was unsuccessful. Apt repo in ./sources.list.d/php.list updated their TLS cypher suite and it no longer supports those cypher suite that gnutls in ubuntu 14.04 supports (concretelly gnutls-cli (GnuTLS) 2.12.23 version). Possible solutions would be: try to update gnutls try to install PHP7.4 w/o apt Since I was planning to update my WP server to finally use docker and move it to some modern hosting provider (Linode and Digital Ocean are the primary considerations currently) I decided to not fix this…Continue Reading “Ubuntu 14.04 update to PHP7.4 was unsuccessful”

This is a list of sayings, clever quotes, juicy wisdom nuggets applicable in CS/IT/SE. I invite you to not evaluate these as true or false and Mastery is in part knowledge compression into useful tiny bits that enable you to make decisions fast. Spiral repetition (aka iteration) is both THE key to personal learning and A key to product success. Repetition might not be a form of automation, but it’s a necessary (not sufficient) requirement. Corollary: “automation first” is highly inefficient. Fast decisions == high…Continue Reading “List: words of wisdom for software engineers”

Problem This is how the issue looks like, the current clock speed is off, it is never at minimum during boot time. The Fix … or rather two of them: Remove the battery and while the power cord is plugged – turn the computer on. Press F2 immediately to enter BIOS to verify that the issue is fixed immediately. If you don’t want to void the warranty by opening the laptop – completely discharge the battery by turning computer on repeatedly until nothing happens when…Continue Reading “How To: Fix DELL XPS 5520/5510 CPU stuck at 800MHz /0.78GHz issue”
