shutdown -r now

This is the last post on this blog, I have moved to new site. Everything is still in flux, so it might not yet be as shiny and some features (like comments) are still missing. Nevertheless, the content is there and that’s the main point. I have also written a short post about the reasons why I wanted to move.

If you’re reading this post in a feed reader, you have to update the feed URL manually, unfortunately there is no way of telling to redirect the requests automatically.

Flattr me!

November 14, 2010 Comments off

Some of you may have noticed that I have put flattr buttons below my posts. For those who are not familiar with flattr: It is a micropayment service which allows you to show your appreciation for (free) content by making small donations to its author. Basically it works by spending only a fixed (but adjustable) amount of money per month, so you don’t have to worry about how much you can afford; and clicking flattr buttons for things you like. At the end of the month, the money you decided to spend is divided by the number of flattr buttons you clicked in this month, and the fractions are given to the respective authors. So if you decide to spend $4 each month, and you click four flattr buttons of four different authors, every author gets $1. There is also a nice video on the flattr homepage that explains the idea:

So, from now on, if you like, you can flattr me. Just sign up on and click the buttons below each post 🙂

Note: The standard click-on-the-fly-and-show-how-many-users-have-flattrd-this button needs JavaScript, which is bad, so I only use the static button which directs you to the thing on the flattr site.

Kaffeine 0.8.7 in Ubuntu Karmic

March 7, 2010 Comments off

As I recently mentioned, Kaffeine in Ubuntu Karmic is the (nearly) unusable version 1.0~pre2. I have backported the Jaunty version 0.8.7 to Karmic and put it into my Launchpad PPA.

Hello world!

Yeah. So this is my new blog. I thought, it would be a nice place to collect various bits of information that I noticed during my work that could be useful to other people too (as well as me, having a head like a sieve). So enjoy it, if you like!
