I have just uploaded my first perl module to CPAN! :)

It is called GPS::Garmin::Connect and provides users with a very simple API to download their own activities from connect.garmin.com. This is the same code i am using for my list of runs.

Unfortunately Garmin has not yet released a public API to do this (and it doesn't look like it will in the near future) - so this module authorizes using the default login form and than uses a simple JSON call to fetch the data (just like Garmin's flash interface). It wouldn't be hard for Garmin to break the interface, but hopefully they won't mind that people actually use their own data...
Hey, we have Signatures !!! Great, isn't it ? ;)

Kernel panic on Mac OS X

2009-02-14 16:11:13

I already had enough kernel panics on linux (nice 80x25 console with backtrace) as well as enough blue screens on windows.. (everyone knows how this looks?), but i always felt as if i'm still missing something..

Now, after experiencing a kernel panic in Mac OS X 10.5 i finally feel completed :)

mac os x kernel panic

(yep, that's a windows running in virtualbox and virtualbox was probably the cause for the crash.. but .. anyway)

So, what's next? How does a kernel panic look on FreeBSD? anyone knows? (yep, i'm not really interested enough to google it)

ORF Skichallenge 09 finally over

2009-02-08 12:53:12

After six long racing weekends the ORF Skichallenge 09 finally came to a close.

I finished on place 4 241 in the world cup of 5 races, and on place 12 151 in the final championship (in which i obviously invested not enough time :( ). Unfortunately i forgot my ranking in the last two years, which is why i am now archiving it here :)

I just helped to launch another forum based on SCT: The Django Forum. As last time with http://django-resource.de we were able to automatically migrate all forum categories, users and posts without any hitches.

After managing my own email server for many, many years i finally decided that it was completely pointless..
Since the inception of gmail i haven't used my own @sphene.net addresses anyway, so i moved all of my domains which had mail services to google apps. (ie. poul.at, poul.name, sphene.net, yourhell.com)

No more 100-items long mail queue, no more getting black-listed because my server got hacked and used to send spam, etc.
