About 10 years ago, Diane and I went to Australia for the first time ever. There will probably be a special blog post to celebrate the occasion at some stage in February. Today I just got reminded of the trip because an “anonymous friend” of mine sent me this: Now go back in time to […]

by kai 13/01/2013

I recently installed Railo 4.0.2 on a Debian server and it was an absolutely smooth ride. I essentially followed the installation guide provided in the Railo wiki. It’s really straight forward, but let’s go through the steps.

And Adobe does it again – pulling Touch Apps without telling their community

by kai 12/01/2013

Maybe I should rather say “community” as sometimes it seems to me that there’s not a great deal left of the Adobe’s involvement with their community. The story in short, PR-blurb is that they are “refocusing … Touch App development“. In case you don’t speak PR-blurb, this means that Adobe Debut, Adobe Collage, Adobe Proto and […]

Seat etiquette?

by kai 28/10/2012

As some of you might know, I travel quite a bit and I could tell you lots of aviation-related stories covering the whole range from bizarre to awesome and funny. Currently I’m about 2/3 through a NZ-Singapore-Germany-Singapore-Australia-NZ trip and on yesterays’s flight from Brisbane (where I was working with a client during the last week) […]

New side project: jquery.expand.js

by kai 21/10/2012

I’ve got a new side project. Nothing major, but quite a bit of fun to play with: jquery.expand.js.
