  • Finalized return from aKademy

    By on July 12, 2007

    This year’s KDE conference was again worthwhile going to. Wish I had been able to stay longer. Talks were good and seeing familiar and new faces proved to be very nice again. I might be in the minority but in my opinion the initial lack of an Internet connection...

  • Extending the script bindings for Java

    By on June 12, 2007
