…and it’s about time.
Usually I’m very patient, even if people try to annoy me wilfully. I mean… why should I bother if someone makes himself an idiot in public? But today one of my dear colleagues almost managed to annoy me. Well… almost. In the end I still thought: “Child, grow up before you try [...]
I’m currently putting together a collection of different luxembourgish beers for some of my former colleagues in Karlsruhe, as they’ve asked for it and because luxembourgish beer is almost impossible to find over there. So far I already have Bofferding Lager, Diekirch and Mousel Pilsener and Diekirch Grand Cru.
The worst (being Simon Pilsener and Henri [...]
The first official trailer of Mamoru Oshii’s (Ghost in the Shell, Patlabor, Angel’s Egg, Urusei Yatsura - Beautiful Dreamer) upcoming movie “The Sky Crawlers” is out. (Yes, it’s out of sync… as usual with YouTube. Use one of the downloads below if you want a better version)
I’ve still not gotten used to the obviously [...]
Two more days to work, one day to come down a bit, and then a long Weekend with friends I haven’t seen for way too long already. I’m going to do a trip to Karlsruhe where I was living before moving to Luxembourg. I wonder if people will still recognise me. I gained quite some [...]
Having upgraded to Wordpress 2.5.1 and having problems with uploading files? Or do you just hate the totally bloated and inconvenient file uploader?
Here’s a solution. Just dump it into your plugins folder:

…that’s what Apples developers obviously thought when rolling out the Apache for Mac OS X. Its logfiles are surprisingly useless and contain only little information. Nothing some LogFormat/CustomLog directives wouldn’t help, but…
While I don’t care that much about an agent_log, I’d still like to see where people are coming from. But no referer_log anywhere. Not [...]
Today I went to Esch/Belval in the southern part of Luxembourg. Belval was one of the places where steel production took place until a few years ago. Not as big as the “Völklinger Hütte” in Germany, but impressive nevertheless.
Currently, the place is undergoing a severe rebuilding, as a University, shops and flats are going to [...]
“May you live in interesting times” is said to be an ancient chinese proverb and curse. More precisely the first in a group of three, with the other two being
May you come to the attention of those in authority.
May you find what you are looking for.
The authenticity can be disputed, but I’m surely living in [...]
Some Soundtracks work well without a film, others don’t. And there are Soundtracks which are outstanding and suggestive even if you haven’t seen the corresponding movie so far. For example the one I’m listening to at this very moment:
The Soundtrack of “Blue Seed“. Jazzy and some songs with clearly audible chinese influences, sometimes brooding, sometimes [...]
sshd: Listening where I want it to listen.
The solution was to make a custom entry in /etc/services and hack /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ssh.plist accordingly.
I wonder whose bright Idea at Apple that was.
ntpd: runs and broadcasts the time to my local network as long as you don’t touch the “Date & Time” control panel.
apache: Issues solved. Thanks for [...]
