My project code-your-own-blog-webapp is now closed and I switched to WordPress. The main reason I’m not at Blogger is build-in syntax highlighting in WP (Thanks @ Lieschen im Wunderland).

Anyhow, maybe now I will blog more… šŸ™‚


I have a course on transmission electron microscopy of the plant cell at the moment. I uploaded some of the better photos to Flickr.

One photo has a resolution of nearly 10nm!!

ppaste 3.0

I mean 0.3 of course šŸ˜‰ I released the rc1 for a new ppaste version with auto-resizing of pictures and some fixed security issues.

Just voted!

I released ppaste 0.2.1: Better security and Bookmarklet support.

Netbook Part 4


Let me say first, that I hate GNOME! šŸ™‚ But I like the UNR version. It has more a Smartphone (that works) feeling than a desktop PC feeling, but that’s fine by me. The preinstalled apps are simple and everything you need is there. Only the movie player sucks. Everything is very well integrated, so it is suitable for use on non-geekĀ users.

But I installed KDE 4.2.2 too and after I changed the font size to 8 and 120DPI, its useable. But e.g. the Kopete “Add account” window is to big, so you can’t click on the Next button. Everything runs fluidly, even the compiz effects. Not as fast as GNOME butĀ still.

Hibernation/Suspend seem to beĀ working.


Here are someĀ pics

Also one last note: All (USB) ports are on the side of the netbook. One USB port per side. Very practical. No ports are on the front- orĀ backside.

Netbook Part 3

What else works (out of theĀ box)

I tested the webcam with Cheese, the have-fun-with-your-webcam tool that is included in UNR. Taking snapshots works, but video capture doesn’t (not fluidly anyways). The card reader works (tested SDHC and Memorystick) and the earplugs jack works fine asĀ well.

glxgears says my graphics card can do 145Ā FPS.

What doesn’tĀ works

Voice recording doesn’t works out of the box, like the Ubuntu wiki says. Adding options snd-hda-intel model=basic to my ALSA config helped, but the voice recording app still doesn’t records anything. Didn’t try out more apps like Skype tillĀ now.

What I didn’tĀ test

I didn’t test Bluetooth, since I have no other Bluetooth device šŸ˜‰ Didn’t test the Mic jack, but I don’t think that works. Also didn’t test Modem and ExpressCard/34 Slot (whatever that isĀ ..?).

If you want me to test something else, do tellĀ me.
