Wow! I just stumbled upon my old post on GUIdebook about Linux desktop environments - - maybe of some use…?

Android native development

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

Google Android team finally released (beta, of course, but it’s Google after all) Android NDK (for Native Development Kit). Thanks to this you can write Android applications in non-managed languages (such as C, or C++) and get your own native ARM code running on Android phone.
This is not a “real” native toolkit - you […]

Android workshop

Thursday, June 25th, 2009

Android is a magic word after all. I was afraid that there almost no one would be interested in attending the MOPS workshop that we (means - we, Polidea - co-organized last Monday and Tuesday at the BRAMA Laboratory of the Warsaw University of Technology. Academic semester ended just last week, so all students […]

Five Vista tricks you cannot teach Ubuntu. Or Gnome. Or both.

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

Just my 2 cents for growing repository of flames inspired by Linux Haters blog (btw - highly recommended!!!). You see - I was trying to convert my old notebook into a photos/movies machine, that would sit on my coffee table. Being a secondary notebook, it would be also a good machine to be taken with […]

Less we forget - I just submitted draft text of my book to PWN publishing house. Should have its own website - - but it would take some to set it up (the book should be published around September - October…),

Open Office imperfect

Wednesday, October 11th, 2006

Technical remarks: a) Perhaps I should have used the canonical form â?? - in this text. I prefer Open Office. It sounds better. b) English is not my mother tongue and I was not caring much about proper grammar while I typed this.
Open Office is important. Naturally, it is not important for someone not […]

Armenia - Second visit

Tuesday, September 26th, 2006

Another trip to Armenia, this time direct flight to Yerevan. Not much to write home about (ok, Yerevan in summer and Yerevan in winter are two quite different cities (especially if in winter you experienced dense fog - I finally understood that this is really not a flat city . Some photos are available […]

Dapper Drake on T42

Wednesday, June 28th, 2006

I just finished Dapper installation on my notebook (IBM, ops, Lenovo T42), or rather I finished a first part of it. So far I was busy mostly with getting the bootloader right - which is not a trivial task on recent Thinkpads due to Rapid Restore & Recovery partition.
More to come then. For now I […]
