CarLog on GooglePlay!

Android app on Google Play

Car Log is a small app to log and keep track of the fuel consumption of the personal "car fleet".

It allows the tracking of multiple cars and is able to provide statistics about the mileage, average fuel-consumption and total fuel-consumption.

Depending on the user's selection, the app will present this data in numerical form or through pie-, bar- and line-charts.

For more Information, see the CarLog-Page.

What is Politics about?

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, "What is politics?"

Dad says, "Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me capitalism. Your Mom, she's the administrator of the money, so we'll call her the Government. We're here to take care of your needs, so we'll call you the people. The nanny, we'll consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we'll call him the Future. Now, think about that and see if that makes sense."

Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, And Nobody

This is a little story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it.

Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.

Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job.

Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it.

Happy Pi-Day

Happy pi-day everyone!

What’s the *feep* is that?

It’s March 14th – or 3/14 in the English date-format. And that, as the mathematically aware among you will notice, are the first digits of the number “pi”, which is 3.14159265359… (it’s an irrational number as you know, so I can’t write a complete mantissa.)


I have published a new app, called "RoleDice", on last thursday. It's available through GooglePlay, as usual, and it's a virtual dice-roller for you smartphone or tablet.

New Tutorial available: "Printing via Network"

"Printing via Network" is a new tutorial I have just published on my website It deals with a problem that bugged me for a long time: simple, shared printing in a heterogeneous network that just works.

When I bought my last printer, I had a choice to make: should I buy a networked printer, or one with a USB-connection?

New Version (1.2) of CarLog released!

I have just uploaded a new release of my Android App CarLog on GooglePlay.

It will probably take some time, until version 1.2 will be available throughout GooglePlay, so please be patient, if the currently available version should still be 1.0.2, the update will be there for you shortly.

My favorite quotes - No. 16

Sadly, yes:

Every absurdity has a champion who will defend it.

Server Downtime

The server is now back online after giving me slight trouble on Friday night. I want to apologize for the server-downtime and for any inconvenience it may have caused, but it should be fixed now.

I used the downtime to perform some overdue updates on several packages and the operating system itself.

Everything is back to normal operations now.

Some revelation about "problems"...

Not a quote, but something we all have to learn sooner or later:

Problems don't disappear by ignorance. They tactically withdraw, regroup and return with multiple strength.
