Jonglage Nummer 1

Link: http://www.vimeo.com/8205130

Aufgrund vielmehrfacher Nachfrage gibt es endlich mein erstes Jonglagevideo.

Ich bitte zu beachten, dass das Video schon ein paar Monate alt ist und die vielen Patzer zum Ende nur dabei sind, weil es dann gut zur Länge der Musik passt.. :)

Kubuntu Karmic Koala freigegeben

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Friendly_Female_Koala.JPG

Ubuntu 9.10 AKA "Karmic Koala" wurde heute freigegeben.
Mal wieder ein Release, an dem ich nicht soo sehr aktiv mitgewirkt habe, aber immerhin eines, dessen Bugs mich am Ende sehr geplagt haben.

Eine Übersicht der neuen Features gibt es auf ubuntu.com.

Auch Planet Ubuntu ist voller Screenshots und Release-Posts, u.a. deswegen von mir jetzt auch nicht viel mehr.. ;)

Zum Download geht es hier - und wer lieber Kubuntu (basierend auf KDE 4.3) möchte, geht hier entlang.

0x1d - l0l0r (atombrot remix) - And the greatest good you can do, is to bring back a new idea

Link: http://soundcloud.com/atombrot/0x1d-l0l0r-atombrot-remix

Our world is in crisis because of the absence of consciousness.

This is what we should be looking for.
It’s not for your elucidation.
It’s not part of your self-directed psycho-therapy.
You are an explorer.
And you represent our species.
And the greatest good you can do, is to bring back a new idea.
Because our world is endangered by the absence of good ideas.
Our world is in crisis because of the absence of consciousness.

And: everyone of us, when we go into the psychedelic state, this is what we should be looking for.
It’s not for your elucidation.
It’s not part of your self-directed psycho-therapy.
You are an explorer.
And you represent our species.
And the greatest good you can do, is to bring back a new idea.
Because our world is endangered by the absence of good ideas.

And so – to whatever degree – anyone of us can bring back a small piece of the picture
and contribute it to the building of the new paradise.
Then we participate in the redemption of the new spirit about and for all.
It’s what it’s really all about.

Im Dreieck Jonglieren - bis man es kann

Zum Thema Jonglieren mal mindestens drei Meldungen:
1. Wer mir Jonglierbälle schenken möchte, sollte schon mindestens 4 einplanen. Und ein großes Dreieck.
2. Jonglieren verändert Gehirnverdrahtung
3. Man kann auch ganz anders jonglieren:

4. Die Tage stell ich mal ein Video von mir beim Jonglieren ein - versprochen :)

Buddix has released a new house mix, called "Discolectro". Check it out.

A lot of have-to-be-loved parts in there, and a very nice final track.

HAL configuration for Kingsis Peripherals Evoluent VerticalMouse 3

To configure my Kingsis Peripherals Evoluent VerticalMouse 3, I've added the following fdi (HAL configuration info) to /etc/hal/fdi/policy/evoluent-verticalmouse3.fdi:

XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
  <device>
    <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.mouse">
      <match key="input.product" string="Kingsis Peripherals  Evoluent VerticalMouse 3">
        <merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">evdev</merge>
        <merge key="input.x11_options.Emulate3Buttons" type="string">no</merge>
        <merge key="input.x11_options.EmulateWheelButton" type="string">0</merge>
        <merge key="input.x11_options.ZAxisMapping" type="string">4 5</merge>
        <merge key="input.x11_options.ButtonMapping" type="string">1 2 2 4 5 6 7 3 8</merge>
      </match>
    </match>
  </device>
</deviceinfo>

The most important part (for me) here is ButtonMapping: by default only the wheelbutton triggers middle click, but since it's rather hard to press (and I use it often for pasting), I've mapped it to the middle button on the right side, too.
Also, the thumb button becomes "Back" (in browsers) and the lowest button on the right triggers the context menu.

Update: This was meant to included in Ubuntu Karmic (see bug 451729), but then got removed again (not everybody liked it).

Update^2: for udev (which is used solely since Ubuntu Lucid), I've transformed it into the following file (which you can store as /etc/udev/rules.d/90-local-xorg.rules):

Code:

ACTION!="add|change", GOTO="xorg_local_end"
KERNEL!="event*", GOTO="xorg_local_end"
 
ENV{ID_INPUT_MOUSE}!="1", GOTO="xorg_local_end"
ENV{ID_MODEL}!="Evoluent_VerticalMouse_3", GOTO="xorg_local_end"
 
ENV{x11_options.Emulate3Buttons}="no"
ENV{x11_options.EmulateWheelButton}="0"
ENV{x11_options.ZAxisMapping}="4 5"
ENV{x11_options.ButtonMapping}="1 2 2 4 5 6 7 3 8"
 
LABEL="xorg_local_end"

(see also https://wiki.kubuntu.org/X/InputConfiguration for more information)

Update^3: This is bugged in Ubuntu Lucid.

POPFile

Link: http://getpopfile.org/

POPFile lets you easily handle your POP/IMAP email incoming folders and filters your mails into "buckets".

It allows more than the usual "spam" / "ham" buckets - you can use it to filter by language, too.

I have quite a special email setup, and it says currently:

Messages classified:   108,230
Classification errors: 2,948
Accuracy:              97.27% 

My buckets are: b2evo, backscatter, bugs, jedit, logspam, newsletter, personal, server, spam, traffic-watch, ubuntu, ubuntu-ack

Training messages into new buckets is as easy as moving them into another folder, when using IMAP - the POPFile process will recognize the movement and re-train this message.

If you're still using POP3, POPFile is a nice application anyway (it can be used as a proxy), but please consider switching to IMAP for your own sake.
