Google Picasa Web Albums open doors…

September 24th, 2006

Seems like webalbums is now available from google. Of course BETA. As with all google products.

It’s 250 MB of free picture storage, with the nice Picasa client to manage your photos locally and upload to webalbums without a hitch. Did I mention picasa runs on windows and linux, just as I need it?

I created my first test album for public view. So also embedding into posts should work. Let’s try with a “Art” image:

WordPress reached 2.0 and plugins followed…

February 9th, 2006

It took some time til WordPress reached the 2.0 version. And now most plugins are being ported.

This site now runs on WP2.0 with gallery2 plugin in the works. Update: A basic example is disabled.

Just have to get the puzzles together now, then everything is going to be fine, fine, fine.

CRM + open = openCRX

August 9th, 2005

Seems like there is already a opensource alternative for CRM solutions. I plan to build one during the project part of my studies, so better see what’s already there.

OpenCRX is ready for download (at time of writing 1.6.0 is stable) and is based on JBOSS (J2EE) and openMDX. I plan to do a testdrive installation on my server here, where postgres is already running, so I just need to get jboss running and deploy openCRX. Together the downloads are more than 150MB, wow.

WordPress setup

August 5th, 2005

After some time, mambo was a little too complex for my needs, so i decided to try wordpress.

There are also tons of plugins available, and although not as easy to administer (still fine), it offers everything I need and is very fast compared to mambo (because it’s simpler).

So far so good, let’s see how it works out.
