Stuff to check out

leave a comment »

Well, the web is full of surprises especially for people like me who want to try out everything but don’t have the time… I still hope to get some free time over the holidays to get some dev done and to check out all the links I’ve posted recently. Well, I still have some more 🙂 [no(c)]

Online/Multi computer syncs: https://www.mesh.com/Welcome/default.aspx (needs Windows Live ID though…),
Better…: http://www.getdropbox.com/ (50GB for 99$/year)

Adding a social network to your website: http://elgg.org/index.php (Sounds easy and looks good)

A nice Linux distro to try at a VM: http://www.linuxmint.com/

Office 2008 styled apps with JRibbon and A03 look and feel for Java: http://www.pushing-pixels.org/?p=941

MessageFormat for Java description: http://blog.nexaweb.com/post/a-guide-to-java-messageformat-or-how-i-learned-to-stop-worrying-and-love-macros/ (cool for templating)

Runtime class management: http://code.google.com/p/reflections/ (cool for frameworks for example)

Extending Java foreach: http://www.iam.unibe.ch/~akuhn/blog/2008/pimp-my-foreach-loop/

BTW… VirtualBox 2.1 is out with experimental OpenGL3D and x64 Guest under 32-Bit OS support. Must look for a portable edition… Okay, think that’s all for the moment, I’ll post some cool stuff later if I have time.

Grails resources

leave a comment »

Hello again 🙂

This time I found a nice blog entry about Grails and an overview of must-reads and resources for developing your first grails website: http://blog.saddey.net/2008/10/11/grails-links-from-my-first-week-with-grails/

Looks worthy for a closer investigation of grails. Well, I wanted to develop my own grails site as a little private side project since summer, but I still have no time. I first need to get my infrastructure right, as my 2 1/2 year old notebook is getting buggy and slow and needs a replacemt and that needs money, which I don’t have (not even banks have money nower days…). Maybe next three month I’ll get new hardware and energy for my side projects. At least I hope so.

Greetz, GHad
