31.10.07 23:27 ( , , , ) Robert Love did it, so I will do it as well: publish some statistics about my website (Yes I have google analytics running on my site since few month)
Ok, just kidding. Of course this is juts for my site and we all know that applets can be a pain in the a.., but hey, there is hope that Java will come back to the desktop.
This is interesting.My personal feeling was that still much more people use Windows (even if most of them use Firefox/OpenOffice/Eclipse/Java...) on it. Looks like most if my visitors are more wise than I though :-)
no surprise, no comments
You see the trend: OS ~50/50, browser ~75% firefox, but if you really want to trust on something installed on your visitor machine it's JAVA.

19.10.07 23:26 ( , , , ) Christian Ehrlicher has published new KDE4 beta3 windows packages.
Here is the windows installer screenshot:
Umh. none of the applications works after installation. All I got is a message that the "application configutation" is not correct :-(

21:31 ( , , , ) Looks like that google translate has a new function. After having translated a web page, when you move your mouse over the translated text, a popup message with orginal text will appear and ask if you suggest a better translation.

20:19 ( , , , ) Few days ago Alfresco released JLAN, a virtual file system server, under GPL. On the network side, JLAN supports so far CIFS/SMB, NFS and FTP. On the file system side, it supports local file system and a database file system (directory and file content are stored in a database).
Apache commons-vfs, one of my favorite projects, is an virtual file system (supports local file system, ftp/sftp, http/https, zip,jar,tar,webdav,cifs...) written in java.
I wonder how difficult it would be to build a CIFS server (using JLAN) with an commons-vfs back-end, allowing windows network share access for example to ISO images (yes, there is a basic iso9660 plug-in for common-vfs) or zip files.
Too bad I don't have much time this week-end too try it out :-( maybe I will just sleep less and see if it works....
A problem might be the licenses (I'm not deep into licensing issues). JLAN is GPL, and commons-vfs is Apache license. According to FSF and this apache page, it looks like GPLv2 and Apache License v2 are not compatible. But how about GPLv3 and Apache License v2. Anyone knows?

9.10.07 18:16 Selling a car in Germany ( , , , ) I had a car accident two weeks ago. Mercifully it wasn't my fault and the insurance paid for my car. But the damage on my care was to big to repair it, so I had to sell it and try to get the best price I could.
There are two big private (and dealer) car sale platform in Germany: autoscout24 and mobile.de.
I first advertised the car in autouscout24 but had only few calls in the first 3 days. Then I advertised it in mobile.de and got at least 10 calls per day. Hopefully I will finally sell the car tomorrow.
Anyway, it looks like that mobile.de is watched by much more people (at least professional dealers looking for damaged cars) then autoscout24.
