just something
This guy seems to be a little bit jealous. I really enjoyed the latest blog entries. Poor souls...

GNOME 2.14
Another successful GNOME release. Congratulations to everybody who's involved.

No time... blog. I decided to stay at my parent's place next week. Gotta learn for university again and I hope that I'll find some time in there.

This is really cool!

Berlin was very cool. I've been to that great city for three times now and I'm still seeing new places/things. Gonna upload some photos I took when my server's up again.

Got some work to do for university. My professor wants a visualisation of the Traveling Salesman Problem. He gave me the algorithm about a week ago; I GObject'ified it and have to do the drawing stuff now (using cairo). Should be fun/easy...hopefully ;-)

Second USA trip within 3 months
My plane will leave Munich at 7.10 on Thursday morning. Looks like, I have to get up very early. Packing will be done on Wednesday. I checked out and they are saying that it'll be quite warm in Houston and even in San Francisco. W00t!

It's always been interesting for me what Linus Torvalds thinks about software and especially about desktops. I won't add more comments here, since the flamefest has already begun and even some sites are already down.

Next USA Trip

I sort of planned my next USA trip (5th January -> 16th January). A friend of my dorm will also go there. First, we wanted to go from Houston to San Francisco by car (approx. 3100km), but we reconsidered (I should be more precisely: we changed our initial plan about 5!). Looks like, we gonna fly into San Francisco. A good old friend of mine is currently living there. He's studying informatics/ in Munich from 2000 - 2003. Finally, I'll meet him again -- nice.

Blogging blabla...
Let's blog again (am I bored? no, not really!)

The last day (16th Oct) the weather was quite nice, I was in a good mood and thought nothing could go wrong (haha, things go wrong when you aren't expecting it). So, I got to the airport, everything packed. Waited for some hours (the usual procedure at airports, most people know it) and learned just 45 minutes before boarding, that no airplane would leave for Philadelphia etc.pp. Very nice, I thought! So I got to the ticket counter (where already about 50 people were waiting; I decided that it would be more -- let's say -- appropriate to go to the First Class counter. I had to wait for about 10 minutes (better than waiting more than one hour!), tried to explain my problem (errr, the airline's problem actually), got a new ticket, took the T back where I was staying. Bottom line: I had to stay for one more day in Boston (well, my baggage has been already sent to Philadelphia -- bad luck, like my trip to the states where I had to wait for my baggage as well). I finally arrived in Munich on Tuesday (18th), got to Passau in the evening and was finally home.
A brief summary about my trip:
I really enjoyed Boston again, met harshy, cinamod New York was very nice, very big, very crowded. I enjoyed the view on top of the Empire State Building, got to Staten Island, visited the remains of the WTC (the only thing which is left is the basis), experienced New York's weather (2 days rainy). I'm going to upload my photos soon. Stay tuned...

LWE in Frankfurt and LinuxDay in Dornbirn/AUT:
Beside some bad organisation, LWE was quite ok. Unfortunately, it was smaller and fewer people visited the fair. Our booth was well equipped and I want to thank Zoltan for his good work and his efforts. We gave away about 1200 Ubuntu CD's; this means about 2500 CD's found their way to the users this year (Linuxtag and LWE). We can do better and the newly founded Ubuntu Deutschland e.V. ordered additional CD's for the next event(s). The GNOME Deutschland e.V. and the Ubuntu Deutschland e.V. will cooperate in the future and combine their efforts, which makes me really happy. Both e.V.'s can learn from each other. As a sidenote I'm especially content that "Josh" is our new treasurer now. He's going to help us in many ways. I'm hoping that the next months will be easier for me. The last days I contacted some people in our e.V. to see, if they want to help and in which areas they want to contribute. Got some replied -- promising. BTW, I uploaded my LWE photos here. Check them out, if you're interested.

At Systems this year we gave away about 3000 Ubuntu CD's (thanks for the update, Murray). This makes more than 5500 CD's! w00t!!

Finally, I arrived after a 12 hour's trip ... to be more precisely, my baggage didn't. It's stuck in Philadelphia, where I almost missed my connection flight to Boston -- sucks!
Leon told me, that my baggage finally arrived in Boston today.
The summit's been great so far, lots of old friends meeting again; I'm especially happy seeing harshy again. I almost forced him, to go to Boston *g*.
Currently, I'm listening to the iFolder/Simias talk. Looks more promising than I thought. I definitely have to check it out some time. The Beagle talk should be also quite interesting.
I still don't know what I'm going to do in the evening. There'll be the Informal Ubuntu Party at Mako's place.
I'll put some photos online soon...
