OLPC @ 23c3

Day 1
Nothing really happened yesterday besides the very cool lecture on Drones which included a live demo of a Drone.

Day 2
While having a late breakfast I spotted a guy with an OLPC luckily nobody else spotted him for some time so I could play with it without being interrupted. All in all it looks very cool also most of the interesting parts are still not working/fully implemented like the Ad-Hoc wireless stuff. One thing that really sucked is the keyboard - it is made out of rubber and seems really unusable.

Anyway I still want one.

23c3 Day 0

Day 0 was chaos as usual. Every thing looks good and network was up when I first tried :-)

But who's idea was it to replace badges with the stupid bracelets? This is so cheap!

A New Nokia Device in my wwww log...

Some time ago I setup a script that greps for interesting strings in my www log, today I found this entry (I highlighted the interesting parts):

Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; X11; Linux armv6l; U) Opera 8.5 [en_GB] Maemo browser 0.7.4 RX-34_2007SE_2.2006.48-10

A new CPU, newer Opera version, and a firmware name that is dated for next year :-)

In comparison, the current 770 firmware looks like this:

Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; ; Linux armv5tejl; U) Opera 8.02 [en_GB] Maemo browser 0.4.31 N770 /SU-18

And since the new device log was produced by a German IP I guess some people are allready running around with new a device. I wonder if this was the 870.

Landenoeffnungszeiten in Hessen

na endlich leben wir nicht mehr im Mittelalter und koennen, bis auf Sonn- und Feiertagen, rein theoretisch jeden Tag rund um die Uhr einkaufen gehen. Gerade wenn man oft lange arbeitet ist das doch sehr praktisch wenn man auch unter der Woche einkaufen gehen kann und nicht immer das Wochenende dafuer einplanen muss.

Mein lokaler REWE hat auch puenktlich ab dem 1. Dezember jeden Tag von 9-22 geoeffnet und ich denke mal das ich das auch voll ausnutzen werde.

Es wird bestimmt noch etwas dauern bis es hier den ersten richtigen 24 Stunden Supermarkt gibt aber er wird wohl kommen denke ich.

Ich finds jedenfalls toll!
