10 years later

Hi google bots,

I am back to this blog after 10 years. I was thinking to host on a cloud server with ghost but I guess is more convenient a SaaS like blogger.
Speaking of SaaS check out my blog article describing different cloud solutions.

I guess this blog will be kept mostly technically, but from time to time you can expect some rants.

I'm still a F1 fan, looking forward for the race from Bahrain in 6 hours.

Good to be back.

gui for configuring java environment

IBM Romania is promoting Linux and is sponsoring a student contest to make a Linux application. I am thinking to make a GUI for configuring java environment in linux.

Is anyone knowing if such GUI already exists ? I am not sure but I think they are, for products made by BEA, JBoss, SAP,etc.

For the GUI I am thinking at swt or java-gnome.

Java5 source code is available for download with a new license.


Finally, I resolved a weird bug in nmap-sharp. The path after character # is ignored by the Proccess.StartInfo.Arguments.


A new draft for XHTML™ 2.0 is available.

Nokia and GStreamer

GStreamer is something like Direct{Sound, Music, Show} for Linux. Kind of audio part from DirectX.

Seems like Nokia is playing with Gstreamer for a new cool device.

NRobot - autonomous robot fighting game

Remember robocode ?

NRobot is exactly same thing but with C# and the gui is written in gtk#.
If you are on windows all you need is .net framework or mono and gtk# runtime (5.5M).
On linux you need mono and gtk#. I will provide later an ebuild for Gentoo Linux.

GTK# is only for linux, for windows is used Window.Forms

Hungarian notation

Hungarian notation seems deprecated.

The Microsoft naming conventions suggest using camel notation (initial lowercase such as someName) for variable names and Pascal notation (initial uppercase such as SomeOtherName) for method names and most other identifiers.

I still prefer hungarian notation for GUI elements like labels, buttons, etc.

What do you prefer ?

More info.

Finally, I found out about a rss reader with a feature that I always wanted, ratings for feeds.
Let's see how is to read blogs and feeds with this reader. For now seems to be the best rss reader in the market.

romanian trolls on linux advocacy a

In February I joined Linux advocacy group. Sadly but that group is full of microsoft trolls. Somebody told me that the group was destroyed a long time ago. Today I found out that the trolls are from Romania(Cluj Napoca). Ruşine să vă fie.

Why some people are bashing Linux ? because they are lazy and proud.
They don't want to learn Linux, but they want to remain IT Experts. Instead, they are IT prostitutes.
