Well - it has been now 10 months without any diary entry from me. A lot of things have changed since then. First, my former company got bancrupted. KPNQwest Germany broke down, my project has been taken over by the company which did the marketing for the project before (and since a few days _all_ former technicians are gone from that project, we'll see how long it will survive :-) I myself found a new job - not in Karlsruhe anymore, but in Stuttgart, a town nearly 80 Kilometers away. Everyday I fetch the train now to get in there. What I do there? Mostly operations - running a realtime-clustersystem. Quite some open source is used, but not enough - if I am able, I'll try to bring more in, like netsaint for monitoring. Let's see what I can do here.
