Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS-N) Debianized Summary

November 7, 2010 – 6:11 pm by Adnan Hodzic


Last week I was on my first Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS-N), I wanted to attended this summit for couple of reasons: 1. Developer, I'm part of Debian Java, working on Eclipse IDE, and as you're developing Debian, you're automatically developing Ubuntu, no? :nerd: 2. DebConf11 main organizer, I really wanted to see how it's all done on "corporate" level, for instance we're going with hotels instead of student dorms and so on. 3. Migration to Linux infrastructure, make contacts and have some talks on this topic, because after DebConf11 in Bosnia a lot of institution will most probably open doors to open solutions such as Linux. I went to this summit without any expectations or plans, just said I'll play it by ear. This years UDS was held in Orlando, Florida before Orlando I was planning to stay in NYC for couple of days, therefor my whole plan was to get to NYC, then ...

I want Xperia X10 Android 2.1 update now!

November 1, 2010 – 5:09 pm by Adnan Hodzic


Story I bought Xperia X10i this summer during DebConf10 in NYC, I loved this phone from very beginning however what bothered me was that it was still stuck on outdated Android 1.6. To get your own custom Android on it, wasn't quite possible because no one managed to hack bootloader even though some of the guys at XDA where getting pretty close. Long story made short, Sony Ericsson has finally release their Android 2.1 update, but made it available only for Nordic region, they explained it all on their blog where they also sent a message for "paranoid" users as they called them. I thought, if I gave it all this time I can wait a little bit longer, but then one of my friends (@sahinovic) gave me a good pointer to go in right direction with using custom ROM, Nordic for example? So this is where I got my idea. I want 2.1 update now! Please note ...

Linux sex – R3make

August 23, 2010 – 11:56 pm by Adnan Hodzic


This is my third video of me while doing my tattoo, hopefully it won't get removed again due to licensing, because I tried to provide all the necessary copyright. This is its first time showing up on Planet Debian, so I might even hear some criticism? If any please don't be too harsh on me :) I'd like to have this one on as some kind of personal "zeitgeist" moment if anything, and I'm definitely not making any other "versions" of this video. I have "why I did it", and all the other things written in my previous posts related to this video. Enjoy Linux sex first draft: Related posts: Linux/Unix sex Chimaira / Linux sex v2.0

DebConf10 Summary & DebConf11 invitation

August 21, 2010 – 4:13 pm by Adnan Hodzic


DebConf10 ended 2 weeks ago, I'm back in Bosnia and I needed some time to "recalculate" everything that happened to me in last month :-) This was my third time in NYC, and NYC as a city never left me empty handed, in every possible sense! And am seriously considering option of moving back one day, whether to get my Masters/phD or just do work we'll see what future holds for me :cute: DebConf10 I was in organization team for DebConf10, but if you put me aside, what's particularly interesting is that there was a total number of 7 Bosnians on DebConf10, two of which were government officials. I must note this wasn't our complete team, and what's most important of all is that they all pretty much volunteered as much as they could, of course, besides good will to help Debian, but also to at least somehow prepare themselves for ...
