I iPhone

12. Juli 2008 Keine Kommentare

Last friday was the day the iPhone 3G has been sold in Switzerland.

Swisscom was to organize a preshopping event, starting at midnight. People started queing already at 2pm and when I got there at 7.30 pm I was the 150th person in the queue.

Sadly the event was badly organized, except the snacks. Nobody took care of the queing. Yes, we are not in England, so people don’t know about queing.

The result was that people like me waited for 7 hours straight while other people just walked in and got one. They made me angry and at the same time they made me feel like a fool.

My last resort was the early-bird sale, starting at 6.30 am.

I got up at 5.50 and started the laundry machine. Yes, it was laundry day and I got just 3 hours of sleep, but laundry is important too. 😉

I got on my bike and rode to the nearest Swisscom-Shop, about 300m and I was the 8th person in line. 5 minutes later there were already 20 wanna-be-customers like me in line. A quarter hour later the shop manager
announced that there were only 13 devices at this agency, so I finally was among the lucky ones!!

An hour later I was at home, waking the kids for the kindergarten and then, only then, I could initiate my brand new iPhone over iTunes, sponsored as a birthday present.

And my kids finally got a new puzzle box;)

Hudson has a groovy console

7. März 2008 Keine Kommentare

I am playing around with hudson as a integration server.

So far it is very nice and intuitiv, you can even trigger builds by email, mobile etc! And just
yesterday it has groovy-console builtin for monitoring maven2-builds!

Isn’t it a good day when you recover that your new tools already know each other? 😉

Although I have to admit that hudson lacks some features I would like to have such as
access-control per project. For now there is an access-control (LDAP, Matrix-like etc) for the whole build-server…

not a leopard success story

6. März 2008 Keine Kommentare

Here is one of my ‚bad experience‘-stories about using leopard, be prepared!

Last week I decided to install ubuntu and turn my macbook into a triple boot system. The reason was curiosity of how well this can be acomplished.

But it went bad, very bad…. Mehr…

Statement about OpenSource

7. Februar 2008 Keine Kommentare

I would like to quote from Don Brown, right, that guy that intends to ‚make maven not suck‘:

Open Source lives and dies, in my opinion, by the willingness of hackers to fix what annoys them.
