Desktop Syncing with ownCloud
A lot of interest was shown for a desktop client that synchronises data between the local machine and ownCloud. Talking about synchronising means that the software tries to keep the content of a local directory on the same current state as one on ownCloud. Whenever a file becomes more recent on one of the both sides its its going to be updated on the other quickly. As I am currently working on...
On a friday, the 13th...
Last friday I went to work in the SUSE office as I did for more than the last twelfe years. With that friday however something was special: Not only that it was a friday the 13th, but it also was the last day I worked for SUSE. SUSE was an amazing place to work for. Starting as a novice packager in 1999 I moved on and worked on and developed various tools used at SUSE such as Bugzilla, FATE and...

Zentrifuge: Future Day

It was a success for both openSUSE and the Zentrifuge. One thing I like to point out here is the Future Day, happening on november 19th 2011. It will be a one day congress at Zentrifuge around a changing...
Where do you put your data?
This week is openSUSE hackweek, as you might know, and we do fun stuff. A couple of people, I was one of them, were investigating in the very promising project called ownCloud. We were working on a better integration in the openSUSE desktop in upcoming releases. Why do we like ownCloud so much? Well, thats easy: ownCloud is a solution that is under the full control of the user and as a result...
