Time for a new entry :) As i now that this year will be turbulent like the last one, i hope that i find the time to sketch some of my ideas. Commenting the last entries. I run all my systems again with iso. The utf zapp created to much problem with some quick hacks. I experienced some interesting things like lvm2, xorg-1.1/1.2 matrox_hal problem, ... I am happy that my systems are running smooth. Currently i am diving into groovy. The last thing to say that i was really shocked last week by some gcc-compiler issues and diving deeper into the problem i was shocked by the c-language specs :(

A Month has past and still no new Code :( I experimented with UTF8 but the results are frustrating and didn't seem mature or consistant. Upgraded my Nokia 770 and experimented with the toolchain. Nothing notably happend.

Well it worked! System is updated and is working well. I know only two system where a distro-version upgrade really worked. Ubuntu and Gentoo. Well it wasn't my intention to upgrade but seemed to be necessary for my nptl zapp. This saved a lot of time for me!

Currently i am "fighting" with gentoo... All is working fine, but one thing didn't work. NTPL. Now i got some clues. Not so obvious to me. It seems that my profile was to old. Switched it to 2006.1 and changed the architecture to i686, because it seems that it is disabled in i386.

More than 4 Years have passed. Like the previous entry many things happened. Got Work, got a child, build a house and much more :) While still having not much time to do the things i want to do. My dreams come clearer. Gained lot of experience in different areas. Some i am not proud of. After this long break i am at the point of being able to start to realize my dreams. I am a dreamer, nothing but a dreamer (like the supertramp song).

One of those things is to sketch some of my ideas. There are many things i like to have in different forms . e.g. Think of a normal radio controled clock. But why not integrating a bluetooth chip. So there are many things thinkable. e.g. as support for an internal ntp-server. Or the other direction. Showing events happening like incoming mail, jobs finishing, door bell ringing. There are many ways of communication possible in a house. Bluetooth, WLan, Infrared, TwistedPair, Powerline, "normal" sound.

Another is far more gigantic. More like a dream :) Dreaming of a new computer environment. Something like a nextgeneration unix. "New" Languages etc. That is a thing one person can impossibly achive. There are many steps to go. The way is the goal ;) More description and things will come. I hope. At this point it's all Vaporware.

Nothing but a dream. And i have a lifetime to realize it ;) I hope i am able to realize my dreams.
