Each TaskWhy site now has its own logo and icon. We still have intermittent server slowdowns to be investigated and corrected.


There were intermittent extranet errors. A maintenance operation took place this day to reinforce server reliability. During the operation, all sites were offline between approximately 17:25 and 17:50 Paris time.

Improved Mobile Interface on TaskWhy Sites


The interface for the websites were previously only optimized for desktop computers. This was due to an aesthetic choice of having a left column. Now the column disappears on narrow screens and a bugfix allows for more options in the drop-down menu. Here is a list of the websites that use TaskWhy and benefit from this update:

Starting to use


I am starting to add content to my own instance in English here and in French here. The French version is becoming very different from the English version and perhaps more advanced. This is in the protected area of that website.

Creation of the Mann.News for All Websites


I created the website today in the context of a series of microsites based on the TaskWhy approach. Changes and events can come from different websites in that This website centralises all of that. I am starting with the TaskWhy base as is and think about maybe using RSS aggregation in the future. News comes from the following websites:

Config Magic is a website for configuration management of all kinds!

Now where did I put that? What was that password again? Did I do that? ConfigMagic tries to answer these questions we ask ourselves, our providers, our coworkers and more. Ambitions of this website are to :

  1. Document the architecture of deployed computer software and systems
  2. Document where the passwords are and how to get to them (without storing the passwords or credentials themselves)
  3. Isolate configuration information stores specific to each configuration grouping

I personally am not exactly sure how to o this, but my feeling is that as long as we put everything in one place, with one general approach shared by at least three people, we have something really powerful.

Current Approach

My thought to start this project is to have a Git Repository for each configuration grouping under in addition to the core Git repository for ConfigMagic itself. For now, I will both put the common resources for ConfigMagic groupings and the configuration of itself in the same repository (although, the config of ConfigMagic could be in its own Git Repository). This is based on convention and less fancy tooling.

The ConfigMagic repository is here:

Deployed MKDOCS to Ikoula server with webhook. Deployment tested.

Hosted Configurations

These are configurations managed in some way.

The LesGrandsVoisins project is managed in the following repository:

It would be nice to have a MKDOCS webhook as well perhaps.


All Mann configuration information is in an instance of ConfigMagic here at

Website Maintained in French

I am maintaining the website in French for now. This is because of my volunteer work for HyperSupers.
