I started my OpenSource career sometimes in 1992 by coding for TAPPMUD, a Multi User Dungeon.
Some time in 1995 I started contributing to the free Windows Emulator WINE and am one of the core developers, mostly responsible for lowlevel stuff, DirectDraw and all other bugs I encounter.
In 1998 I started together with Matthias Jugel the Java Telnet Applet/Application under GPL license to facilitate MUD access embedded within webpages. It is now used to provide access to shell accounts and also features SSH access.
I've been studying computer science between 1991 and 1998. I was a Sr. Software Developer for the german engineering division of Caldera International Inc., but was laid off end of June 2002. I am working for SuSE starting July 1st 2002. Since August 2004 I am working for the SUSE security team. I am not allowed to talk about any not officially released stuff.
A blank text entry field, like a field of snow (cf Calvin & Hobbes, last Panel "lets go exploring").
I find it hard to write things, because only frustrating happens in my field of work right now. Which is mostly due to the basic nature of "Security" which is like Sysiphos rolling the same stone uphill again and again.
Spent quite some time polishing up my openSUSE buildservice presence.
One week of vacation.
Watching butterflies flutter over a meadow.
Relaxing in the sunshine.
Nothing good to report happened for several weeks, so no entry.
Did not get interviewed from Novell Open Audio. This time.
Met my old class mates last weekend, the 15th anniversary of us leaving high school. Nice to see some of them 5 years after our last meeting. Pictures here.
I went by the new Berlin Mainstation and took pictures there too.
While you can now rip your private CDs to MP3 again with SUSE Linux 10.1 or SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 (no additional RPMs required), I recommend ripping to OGG.
Why? Because the format is free. Advocate OGG today!

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
