All Saints' Day today and the same weather as every year --> cold, rain and unpleasant. Unbelievable that the weather knows the exact day in the calendar every year.

Just today I switched my webpage from http to https, to avoid any issues with web browsers in the future. So don't be surprised if you see the change, has no impact on bookmarks anyway 🙂.

Some more details about the 5G Hologram interview I mentioned the last time, sorry only in German so far                                                                      https://www.vodafone.de/medien/digitales-leben/5g-mobility-lab-vodafone-startet-ersten-5g-mast-in-deutschland/. Looks like advertisement that I normally don't do, but it is more related to the feeling to work in a great company now that is working at the leading edge of technology. 

Besides that IBM is planning to buy Red Hat (https://www.redhat.com/en), a company in the open source community with one of the key Enterprise Linux standards and cloud/virtualization expertise. Idea is to break the domination of Amazon (AWS) and Microsoft (Azure) in the Cloud Computing market and industry. The deal should be finished early 2019, we will see how it goes.
