Long time no blog! :) Well I am back (blog-wise I mean).
So here is the massive catch-up with my life:
I did quite some work on gnome-vfs. Mostly bug fixing. The biggest new thing on HEAD probably is that I merged Tor's win32 patch. The merging took me almost a whole day but I think it was worth it. Although I have to admit that I don't like the tons of new #ifdefs G_OS_WIN32 too much. Oh well you can't have everything. I hope to get at least some more features in until GUADEC and to get more patches reviewed. Manny did some good bugzilla cleanup!
I have been to the USA in March to work for Scalix again. It was even better then the last time! We moved to a new office and it totally rocks! There were also some new faces - very cool people. I am really more than happy I could work there together with such nice guys. You rock! Work is really fun this way....
Not to mention that the Bay Area itself was more than great. I got to see Sin City in this big movie theater called Metreon (or something). A friend of mine was also at San Francisco so we hung out this one weekend. Going out in SF totally rocks!
Oh and not to forget the nice pictures I took at Half Moon Bay. Especially this one!
As some may already know I switched my majors from CompSci to Philosophy and now after already 4 weeks of university I have to say it really was one of the best desicions I made the last years. It just is *feels* so much better and you wouldn't believe how much more fun university now is. CompSci as a major was totally boring. Especially in Passau (Germany?). I bet it would rock more at Berkeley :)
Apropos Passau. It just rocks to study here when it's summer. I already did some BBQ and I can't wait until it's warm enough to go swimming again. I also wanna finish my paragliding license this summer.
I have one Popper class this year. I really liked Popper since I first read some of his books after my old-greek teacher told me about him in the 11th grade. I kinda changed my mind a bit about him now. I think his theory called Critical rationalism (CR) has some flaws. In CR he states the falsifiability is one of the major criteria of any theory. BUT the CR is kinda self-immunizing itself by beeing hardly falsifiable. I will give a lecture about Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolutions at this very class. I got to say I find his theory really interesting. The lecutre will be fun I hope. I will put the outline and presentation online if it's ready. Thanks Seth for telling me about him some time ago and I am looking forward to having some discussion at this year's GUADEC.
The other very interesting class I have is about Existentialism. Sartre and Camus. Very interesting. I will post some more about that later (including a nice list of books to read).
Ok enough for today! Comments per mail since advo still doesnt have a comment system :)
