Subversive in Eclipse Ganymede

I updated my pretty old Eclipse Europa installation to Ganymede today. OK, the restart you have to do quite often were really annoying, but besides that everything worked quite well.

Über ausgefallene Hobbys und außergewöhnliche Menschen

Es gibt ja eine ganze Reihe von ungewöhnlichen Hobbys und viele davon lassen uns nur Schmunzeln, milde Lächeln oder einfach nur den Kopf schütteln. Dann gibt es aber wieder Hobbys die uns erstaunen und ganz ehrfürchtig werden lassen.

eMail notifications for reading and delivery

Inspired by Bob's article on email reading notifications, I wanted to check out the details about all these notifications: reading, delivery and whatsoever.

But first of all, I do know that you can't rely on any notifications for various reasons and that's it's therefore questionable if you should use them or not. But still, it's interesting from a technical point of view.

Securely setup subversion (SVN) with Apache

There are a lot of explanations out explaining how to setup Subversion and Apache to work smoothly together. Since I'm a bit paranoid I'd like to give one the needed rights to the Apache user.

But let's start at the beginning and setup the environment before we care about the proper rights.

Squid proxy and user authentication

There are cases where you want to control the access to your proxy server. This could be via IP-restrictions and/or authentication via user name and password.

I recently configured my Squid to support user authentication. There are different options for authorization via authorization helpers:

  • LDAP: Authenticates against LDAP databases.
  • MSNT: Microsoft NT domain authentication.
  • NCSA: Authenticates against the same type of password file as many NCSA-compliant web servers (e.g. Apache htpasswd)

Find coordinates on Google maps

There's one thing I really miss on the web front-end of Google maps: show that coordinates of location you found.

Luckily Bernard Vatant filled this gap with the page to
find latitude and longitude with Google Maps using the Google Maps API.

Thanks for the helpful piece of work.

Ich gehöre ja im Augenblick auch zu der Gruppe von Menschen, welche sich von von Zeit zu Zeit in einem Vorstellungsgesräch wiederfinden und so traf es sich heute ganz gut.

Tja, jeder hat halt andere Prioritäten bei der Mitarbeiterwahl...

HTTP::DAV for WebDAV handling in Perl

I'm currently working on a project where I create a dump file from a data structure using Storable to do the actual dump. This file needs to be exchanged afterwards.

I already thought about an email attachment or uploading the file via FTP, but then I remembered the WebDAV enabled server at my fingertips. Yes, that's the sort of challenge I want to face.

Conkeror: Emacs insprired browser

As I already told you I wanted to give Conkeror a try and I kept my promise.

I downloaded the Ubuntu Jaunty packages and built them for my box running Intrepid. This ran quite smooth and even the installation went flawlessly.
