Writing a Thesis is Fun

Stuff, that I stumbled upon, while writing my Bachelor’s thesis. Some might be funnier than others.

 

The Jailbreaker cannot always live in Maryland and give sweet candy to everyone!

[Source] – Don’t bother. I don’t live in Maryland either.

 

/* All this GUI stuff I assembled together via various
* howto’s and small code snippets found on the web. So dont
* wonder about this strange looking buttons etc.

You are in a hurry, and you don’t want to read this man page.

If you really absolutely need more capacity,
you can ask a wizard to enlarge me.

[LaTeX logs] – Seriously. I really abolutely need to get my thesis compiled!

Android + Linux

Just as a reminder for myself. To connect my Thinkpad Tablet to my Arch Linux PC the following was really helpful: http://linuxundich.de/de/android/mit-go-mtpfs-unter-linux-auf-android-handys-via-mtp-zugreifen/

On Arch Linux the package in AUR is currently called go-mtpfs-git

Are Geodata evil?

I am currently working with some friends on an Android application, that is using geodata. Your current location is the most important thing to make this app work. We are then working with this and some other data and making a query to Google.  The app does not persistently save your location anywhere.

Nevertheless: Is it evil? It will send your location to Google in your behalf…
