openSUSE Board Election

Friday, October 24th, 2008

Finally I voted for the openSUSE Board. I think this is a quite important committee in the openSUSE project. Their job is not about taking control over the openSUSE development, but rahter to interlock of the community and the interests of Novell. They are communication partners for both sides and help in decision making processes. Thanks to the current board for their good job, and all the best to the next board.

WordPress Theme: YAST

Friday, October 24th, 2008

As the default theme of my blog is a little boring I was just looking for alternatives. I found a theme called YAST. As a YaST developer I somehow feel pressed to use this theme despite I don’t like it so much …

Lets see what other themes I might find the next days …

My third first posting

Friday, October 24th, 2008

Today I found a new hobby of mine: Install a weblog, write one post and forget about it for a long time.

Well, so here it is, my third first posting. It’s in English as announced over two years ago (kind of embarrassing). But now I am changing my just-discovered hobby and make this blog the default site of my domain jdsn.de.

jdsn.de-1.0

jdsn.de-1.0

With this I finally say goodbye to my old site. It was an old site still using a frameset and java script magic to animate menu buttons. This year it had its ninth birthday – if I remember correctly – quite a long time for a web site. But even the content was old and I did not change anything on that site for years – so rest in pieces jdsn.de-1.0 – welcome jdsn.de-2.0.

By dropping the old site and switching to a new system I will from now on keep my site more current and regularly blog about interesting and other topics.

Yet I did not decide what to blog about exaclty – I think I just need to get used to dump my thoughts to the public. Most likely it will be related to software development, linux, openSUSE, music, singing, the city of Nürnberg and lots of other stuff I now can’t think of ever blogging about. Just as a side note: I also blog about things I do for openSUSE on lizards.opensuse.org – its a technical only blog.
