http://www.open.hr/dc2008/ Ok, so this may sound out of sudden, and it did really come out of nowhere. But when I read who's attending and speaking on this same even (Alan Cox, Harald Welte, Machtelt Garrels etc ... etc ...) I just had to register and go. Some other LUGBIH members might be my company, if not ... oh well :) I really hope I'll get to talk to talk to some people on this same "event".  I should pretty much spend that whole week in Zagreb, so I'll make sure I post a fine "summary" Right now this may sound as a crappy post, cuz I'm tired and it's 6:23AM. Stay tuned.

This is going to be one long post, I'll put two months of ideas and work into this post, so ... you might want to take it easy. Go grab cup of coffee or something before you start reading it. Let's call this introduction For almost last two months I've been doing something ... it all started when one of my colleagues actually said "does it have to be that slow" (referring to my boot). And regarding my colleague who doesn't have any "credit" to make me do this, I talked to few Debian developers, and yea their boot is slow as well. Then later on, all my ideas, because it all was just too ... "broad" I actually came up with idea of releasing my own distro (for 10th time) :) Reasons for making my own distro? Well I was actually not happy how KDE was "handled" within Debian. Of course, please ...

DebConf8 anyone?

March 19, 2008 – 9:50 pm by Adnan Hodzic


Two days ago I got an email from "DebConf announce", one of the things just ... pierced my eyes was this: "Registration for DebConf8, which will take place in Mar del Plata from Sunday 10 to Saturday 16 August 2008, will soon close, the registration deadline is end of this month, thats only about two weeks left." After DebConf7, DebConf8 wasn't excatly in my head, mostly because I knew it was in Argentina. And for your information Distance from Tuzla, Bosnia to Mar Del Plata, Argentina is 11.923 kilometers that is direct air distance. Neverthless, yesterday I was troubling myself with some weird questions, because I could end up on another 2-3 locations this summer. But let's not talk about that right now :) But, that email opened my eyes or something, and I ended up saying "I gotta get there", so today I actually registered. It's official, I'm going to DebConf8, ...

Youtube 2007 Video Awards

March 14, 2008 – 5:05 pm by Adnan Hodzic


Regarding this whole thing, more then a good idea for Google/Youtube. Presented videos are mixture from "classic" Youtube stuff that is whole "commentary" section is like that. After my behemoth remedy, Youtube is the best hangover cure as well. If you don't know what you're looking for, it's loaded with crap. And no I'm not bashing Youtube, I like Youtube :) Anyways, let's disregard my "sarcastically-demented-unhappy" point of view, and see what's up with these 2007 Video Awards. 12 categories Eyewitness: This is second video that ... just had huge "impact" on me. Gotta see it. Commentary: Let's please pass on this category. Adorable Um .. no Short Film Heh, I liked other in this category as well, but my vote goes for this one, why ... well go ahead and think about it if you want to :) Music: Didn't even go over it. No picks obviously. Sports Suprisingly enough I actually had a pick in sports category! Why see it yourself, it ...

Sony Ericsson W960 Showcase

March 11, 2008 – 10:59 pm by Adnan Hodzic


Since last summer I've been watching this phone, and just waiting for it to be released. And since last summer that when it comes out that it's going to be my new phone. W960 was released just recently, however "supplies" are gone all over the place. For last month and a half I've been trying to get it. Balkans, that is Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia don't have it. "change" told me that they have in Wien, cheapest he could find was ~500 euros. Then my gf tells me her sister is coming from Slovenia (hey they are in EU right) I check with her there were the ones by ~520 and ~630 euros. I tell her to get the one, next day she tells me it's all gone. I felt like I completely failed, and at this point I was just a freak who had to get this phone! I go talk ...
