This is an update to my last blog entry about maven. I have started to “mavenize” a major project during the last week, and I wanted to write something about it while I am still working on it. This post will in part also be about the combination of maven and eclipse. This is a
This will likely become a stupid post about maven in hindsight. But I thought it might be worth it to write it down nonetheless. Maybe once I have fully understood the system, I will become a fanboy. So far I doubt it.

Since many years I play around with crypto tokens. The Aladdin eToken being one of them. I actually bought some a couple of years ago and did some testing. When I wanted to use them again just now I stumbled across the same old problem I had during the last couple of years when I

So here I am investigating the Cisco Small Business Router RV042. It might be a router I want to use at a customer site. BUT! As always Linksys / Cisco Small Business stuff makes me really angry. As all the network gear you can buy out there it comes with the DHCP server enabled. But
For many years now, I often record my tracks using all sorts of GPS gear. During the last couple of days, I was using my android smartphone and the great, free GPS Essentials App. Now I wanted to import the tracks I recorded into my own database, which I use for all sorts of things.
Browsing slashdot, I just found a reference to this: When an adult took standardized tests forced on kids. It talks about an US school board member taking a maths test for pupils. He was not able to answer the 60 questions, but was able to guess 10 of them. That guy also claimed to be
