I have a testing setup which runs some tests on a live site. This lead to strange errors when running specific tests at the same time. Caching is the problem.

Getting started with cordova / phonegap
App that allows loading 'remote' pages, and giving them full access to the cordova API.
The trackpoint acts jumpy (again). How can I fix it?
I can hear disk access on my home server, whats causing it?
I try to validate the performance claims and comparisons in the 'Graph Database' book. Using the friend-of-a-friend example from the book I get very different results. neo4j performs worse then mysql in my observation.
Importing dbpedia data into neo4j. Its fast (if you do it right). And indexing can be solved.
The examples in the 'Graph Databases' book don't work out of the box. I've modified them, so that they do work (for chapter 3, that is).
I was finally pointed to neo4j, a graph database. First notes and observations.

The screen pops up on the right side, if you press on it where the hook is, you hear it click in (and immediately back out again). Might it be that the whole screen curve puts too much preassure on it? LARGE FILE
Pictures don't tell everything - still, download the full size picture, look at it at 100%, scroll between the middle and the top of the picture back and force, or compare the top row of hellos with a line in the middle or the bottom. In reality - 40% difference in gray mabye? Compare to my old x31 (good old ibm times) - can't see any difference at all. Everybody I asked so far has pointed out the shadows in the top row. Also everybody pointed out that it has a blueish touch to it - but setting the white point too high seems to be a Samsung thing, and is just annoying, but not a 'real' fault.
This shows how the screen is curved. This is only shown on the backside - the display itself actually is curved as well, but that was impossible to get onto a picture. Hey, I am not a photographer. LARGE FILE

My w key broke, but was reborn and is now know as W the White.
With my old W key broken, Conor came to my rescue. Now I have white sheep amongst my black flock, and it works well. Only needed some loving care with the swiss army knife, and a file.
My thinkpad travel keyboard broke - actually the w key. Here a scan of it (sorry for the bad quality). The top of the spring thingy broke of, where the two holder of the keyboard would snap onto. Also, marked by the red arrows, there are little 'noses' on the bottom side of the key, but now only one side - the other broke off as well.
I had problems running asterisk in an openvz setup, so I thought freeswitch might be an alternative.
