Today, I went to a company meeting and was the only one not wearing glasses. I figured I'd make everyone feel more comfortable by joining the herd, and donned the faux glasses I bought from a street vendor in Taipei. Conformity win! ;)

Back at work properly after last week's on-site visit at a new client in Germany. Interesting to see how ~200 people use Kontact and webmail in coordination with Kolab. Really excited about bringing them a much improved experience with Kolab Enterprise, and still pondering "things learned" from last week :)

Bavarian version of the hotel minibar.... big, pay-what-you-want, and almost entirely beer. "There is a fridge with cold drinks, water, beer for guests in the basement," said the hotel clerk. He was not kidding. Here on Kolab business, but staying for the hospitality ;)

"... let’s remember that anything distributed is never easy, nor given."

A really nice write-up of someone looking into distributed global process registries for Erlang. They ran some very nice tests, while recognizing the limitations of them. I love reading these sorts of entries because not only might I find use in one or more of the libraries covered at some point in the future, but there are good things to learn about development processes ...
An evaluation of various Erlang global process registries, and what made me release Syn.

Pro-tip: in #Kontact  if you want to quickly check a single folder (or calendar, etc.) for new entries without launching an entire account-wide sync: just hit F5, or right-click and select the "Update this <type>" item from the context menu. So useful for people like me with an ungodly number of IMAP folders for mail, calendars, contacts, ... to quickly check for that new message someone just sent.

Had a few minutes before leaving for lunch with workmates, so set up an instance of the rawdog blog aggregator on my server. In minutes, it was running perfectly, including the RSS generator plugin ... which I  noticed was written by a guy I've known for a while -> +Jonathan Riddell ... the free software world is indeed a "small world" :)

We've been hard at work on a slate of improvements for , investing in a program that is bringing the service improvements in hardware, customer service, usability, reliability and performance. It has been a multi-pronged push to bring the server to where we all want it to be: shiny and awesome. Georg lays out some of the details, along with some fun and interesting history, in his blog entry below.

Really interesting retrospective on the economics of the Roundcube Next crowdfunding campaign .. interesting for those considering crowdfunding a project themselves ... 

As an aside ... I'm currently waiting (sigh) for a couple of mailing lists and a server to come around to get the Backstage Pass accounts out and information on the t-shirts and stickers (which look #($ing awesome, btw.. *giggle :)
Bringing together an alliance that will liberate our future web and mobile collaboration was the most important motive behind our launching the Roundcube Next campaign at the 2015 Kolab Summit. This goal we reached fully. There is now a group of some of the leading experts for messaging and ...

Watching the Plasma Mobile media coverage with interest. It was, I think, the last thing I got moving before leaving the KDE community as an active participant. I wrote the first bits of code for both Shashlik (a way to run Android apps on a generic Linux userland) and the Plasma Mobile shell, and was the result of discussions I had, in-person, with the Blue Systems director. Nice to see it unveiled.

"...before leaving the KDE community as an active participant" - this is sad news indeed. I'm jealous of the guys who now get your undivided attention - they are much more than lucky to have you on board!

It's real. I've touched it. I've also watched as Christian bled over his keyboard to get it to this point .. (which leads me to cherish my lovely, lovely free software OS and desktop env even more..)
 
Kontact on Windows!
I recently had the dubious pleasure of getting Kontact to work on windows, and after two weeks of agony it also yielded some results =) Not only did I get Kontact to build on windows (sadly still s...
