The Nokia shop is finally taking orders for the 770 Internet Tablet. I’ve ordered two; one for myself and one for Juno.

Something sensible from Dave Winer

Wow... Dave Winer has actually written something sensible. He asks Microsoft and Yahoo to clone the Google API, but without the terms and conditions that limit it’s use to hobby projects.

Adding the libxml2 and libxslt Python bindings to Mac OS X Tiger

Thursday, 03 November 2005 21:25

Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger comes with Python, libxml2 and libxslt installed by default, but there are no bindings for using libxml2 and libxslt from Python. If you have the developer tools installed, it’s not that hard to add these.

Compile and install the python module of libxml version 2.6.16 using:

curl -O tar xvfz libxml2-2.6.16.tar.gz cd libxml2-2.6.16/python python build python install cd ../../

Compile and install the python module of libxslt version 1.1.11 using:

curl -O tar xvfz libxslt-1.1.11.tar.gz cd libxslt-1.1.11/ ./configure --with-python=/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/ make cd python cp libx*.py /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/lib/python2.3/site-packages/ cp .libs/ /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/lib/python2.3/site-packages/ cd ../../

I’m currently listening to the Ruby on Rails tutorial at EuroOSCON. We’ve been using Rails for over a year now, so we’re probably not really part of the target audience for this session, but I am somewhat disappointed with the lack of any in-depth answers to the questions Jarkko is getting. Maybe he’s just a bit nervous...

Ik ga weg bij T-Mobile

Friday, 09 September 2005 14:48

Zodra mijn huidige contract is verlopen ga ik weg bij T-Mobile. Ten eerste sluiten ze me de hele tijd af terwijl ik m’n facturen gewoon betaal. Ten tweede moet ik tegenwoordig meer dan 20 minuten wachten als ik de klantenservice bel en tot slot nemen ze niet eens de moeite om hun website te testen op een Mac:

Deze website is niet getest met andere browsers dan Internet Explorer en Netscape, noch is de website getest op een Macintosh computer.

The last few days I've been listening to LugRadio on my way to work. It’s an extremely funny, very british radio show about Linux and Open Source. If you’re into that kind of thing and you like to hear people say ‘bollocks’ all the time, you should listen to a few episodes. Highly recommended.

Plain and simple P900/P910i theme

Wednesday, 27 July 2005 08:58

Jason is unable to find a clean and simple theme for his new Series 60 phone. I had the same problem last year when I got my P910i; the default themes were all horrible and I was unable to find anything better on the web. In the end, I just created my own:

Download this ‘plain grey’ theme for your Sony Ericsson P900/P910i.

Great sushi takeout and delivery in Amsterdam

Sunday, 10 July 2005 22:09

Juno recently discovered a great new sushi takeout and delivery shop called Shinjuku. The sushi is far better and quite a bit cheaper than the stuff we used to order from Sushi Kings. Visit the shop at the Kloveniersburgwal 30 or call 020-3202583 to order. The website is not yet online.

By the way, If you want to go out for Japanese food in Amsterdam, you should visit Yoichi (warning: their damned website will start to play music without asking).

The European Parliament just rejected the software patents directive by 648 votes to 14. Amazingly, politics sometimes works.

Nokia 770

Nokia is finally making cool stuff again. The 770 runs Linux and uses GTK+, Matchbox, D-BUS, GnomeVFS, Debian packaging and other high-profile Open Source components. I’m getting one.

Note: If you were looking at this page in a more modern browser like Mozilla Firefox or Safari, it would look and work better and faster.
