Closing Chapter "Diploma Thesis"

After several labor-intensive months I finished writing my diploma thesis. Unfortunately it lasts some months more than originally planned whereupon this was caused by several reasons. One reason was that for about 50% of the control group digital recordings never had been achieved although study protocol specified this requirement. Another problem was my "preference" for writing theoretical texts. I like programming and doing practical stuff but writing does not belong to my favorite activities :-). Needless to say that a diploma thesis should be written in a scientific way and therefore could not just present some results, but must also consist of an introduction part and a chapter describing used methods in order to solve task. And last but not least my work as student assistant at Medical Faculty (University of Heidelberg) regarding eLearning project Athena took up some time. I should mention that latter one was a voluntary decision as loving this kind of practical work and being integrated in a friendly team.
Regardless of those problems subject of the thesis was very interesting and maybe, I can publish some results later.

German court affirms obligation of GPL

On 19th May 2004 the regional court Munich I affirmed that GNU General Public License (GPL) can be legally effective part of a contract (Az. 21 O 6123/03). A few days ago, on 23rd July, the court published the reasons regarding its judgment.
Software developer Harald Welte arrived a restraining order against router manufacturer Sitecom, which used GPL-software netfilter/iptables in firmware of its products without making source code available and pointing to usage of GPL software.
This is worldwide one of the first judgments regarding legal effects of GPL and therefore will be path-breaking concerning future judgments.

Working myself within the scope of several open source projects, I am glad about this decision and hope that there always will be as many people as possible working together and sharing their thoughts in order to achieve greatest benefit for whole society and not just a minority group.

For further information about judgment, see:

Long nights with squirrels, nuts & co.

After two, long nights I managed installing Squirrel-Mail on AOLServer 4 and SpamAssassin, which I use with MTA Postfix.

If you want to install this stuff, too, you will find more information here:
