Theres nothing new in my life ;) Well, i am writing code so far. And I am happy with myself to have so much learned about application design.

Here are some changes. I had to switch to a license by myself, as GPL allows commercial redistribution and i dont want that. If anyone knows an opensource license, that does not allow commercial redistribution but keeps the opensource idea, please tell me. holaCMS now features a brand new filemanager, as the old one was really bad in design. Having a manager for creating files, delete and images-upload and another manager to edit the content is a really bad idea. Too much time consumption. Also there is now voting and RSS included, lots of bugs fixed. I am really happy with this release. Until i will add new features to holaCMS 1.4.5 I will release a 1.4.4 version with lots of enhancements, tweaks and bugfixes.

I rewrote it using NetBeans on my MacOSX. And I finally found an embeddable database fitting my needs: HSDQLDB. Its completly in Java and I can access it via JDBC. The most important part is, that I can pass it without bothering the User with installation issues. Menu Thingy, Kennel creation and Adding and Listing Dogs in order by sex (tab panes) is now working too.

Gandalf left the team because of his lack of time. But goth and others are doing great work in FreeCNC now. I was planning to try out Stratagus with C&C graphics but i had no time left.

I always missed GQview on OSX. There was something similar but it was shareware and had imho a badly design surface. So i hacked together a Java Clone of GQView. It can do the basics :) jGQview Download, Screenshot.

It seems that I am really addicted to coffee now ;-) There is nothing better that reading news in the morning on the web and having two nice cups of coffee - fresh and hot.
I will have some interesting projects at work, so I'm happy to go to work as pretty often there is nothing to do except my own stuff.
Again looking for a notebook btw. My last one (Toshiba Satellite) was robbed from our Linuxtag-booth :-(
Felt in love with the old G3 ibooks blueberry. Yellowdog is supposed to run perfectly on those. Sounds great to me :)

I fixed alot of bugs that night I couldnt fall asleep. There is clean and stable base now. Still need to adopt that multi-image-upload-thingy which is pretty just work-to-do but im lazy ;)

Yeah, again working on that. My Java Knowledge raised since my last try to create that software. On Linux/ppc I installed NetBeans which has a GUI Form Creator that saved me like 2 weeks I would have had written the GUI by hand.

Nobody has time. BeOS/Zeta is at RC1 right now and I am really looking forward to buy it (old BeOS addict). FreeCNC runs also on Zeta ;)

Random Stuff
I was talking to the developer of Boson, a 3D realtime Earth2150-like Strategy game, if it was possible to static link the game. Now he is trying to link it statically, so everybody can download the tarball, extract it and play the game.
IMHO we need that for playing games on linux. The games still can be opensource, but it will make it way more easy to people, if they can download a game, unzip it and play it.
I am very interested in opinions on that, so if you have a mind on that, please drop me an email.


Well, i rewrote the XML-Parser and its working perfectly now :) Actually i had to change the API a bit, but with 'grep' its not a big deal to find out what files need a change.

Not much time left until i will release :-)


I am still experiencing problems with my XML-parser for the holaCMS configuration and data files.
The reading part is working without problems, so does the writing part. But updating seems to be buggy as the parser updates the XML-info, but writes a whole new paragraph into the file.
When I will have completed the XML part, its just image upload left, which should be completly transferable from the old holaCMS.
My roommates are there and brought a huge raise in the it technologies at my appartement.
We now have a central debian-based server for fileserving. Upgraded everything to 100mbit switches and added wlan-access. our router, which still runs Slackware 7.1 linux will be updated this weekend to the MirBSD #7. I think its time for a upgrade ;)

Really great updates here! I rewrote the whole admin panel. the structure is now more clear, everything is saved in XML-files and data is usually saved into the single data directory /holaDB. Beside that, there is also multiuser-management included with all features multiusing provides.
Version 1.4.0, which will contain all of the above, will be released in the next days. Check out at holaCMS-website.

Not much big changes here. But i learned c++ now so i could add money management and build delay.

Did you know Storage? I will try to realize something like that in C# using Mono. Just for educational purposes.
