Planet Debian

My blog is now syndicated with Planet Debian, a group blog which aggregates lots of blogs of Debian Developers.

My AntiPatterns Paper

I have uploaded my paper AntiPatterns — Theory and Practice (PDF) today. I wrote this as accompanying paper for a talk about AntiPatterns I gave in late 2004 at the Technical University of Munich.

I'm too sexy... er... busy for my blog

There are not too many updates here as of late. I'm busy playing Wesnoth, trying out a few MUDs (especially Aardwolf, which seems to be really nice), coding my own game Holsham Traders (a first release should be out in one or two weeks) and lots and lots of other more seriuos work...

My Firewall / Iptables Scripts

I have just uploaded fw_laptop, the firewall script I use to secure my laptop and/or desktop machines (but not my servers), in the Security section of my homepage. The script is GPL'ed and work in progress. I'm happy to receive feedback and/or corrections and suggestions regarding the script.

I will publish other similar scripts for different purposes when time permits.

What the...

So from 2007 onwards The Man™ wants all Germans to pay "Internet-Rundfunkgebühr" (a fee which one was forced to pay if one owned a TV or radio. Now it suffices to own a computer which can be connected to the Internet).
