War driving? War walking!

Just went out on our balcony to see if my wlan has access there. It hasn't. But I found an access point of one of the neighbours. No WEP, no nothing. While I was still pinging around a bit, it offered me a IP address. Pinging the .1 in that subnet was successful. Directing the browser at that host gave me a login screen of the access point asking for a password.
Next to the password entry field, there is a text saying "The default password is 0000".
And yes, the user didn't change it ...

My Ixus is broken

My Ixus is broken and only shows a 'E18' error.
There is a website that shows in many picutures how to fix it.
After diassembling the first parts, my girlfriend decided to get another
one on eBay.
It looks like fixing that error is a task for a long winter night. With a big table covered by a white sheet, so that you find all parts again.

Friday, May 28, 2004 Project details for XDoclet

Marcus updated the Project details for XDoclet. I am curious how many people will have a look at it or if downloads and website hits will increase.

Over the last two days, I had some very strange behavior of JBoss. I was fiddling around with JAAS, EJB security et. al. The code just didn't want to do what it should. After Explorer (this was on Win2k) crashed a few times, I rebooted. And voila: JBoss behaved as it should with my app just running. *sigh* This really cost me a day.
In the past (as a (former) NetBSD hacker) I told people that WinNT and 2k isn't that bad and that they are stable bla bla bla. This really changed my opinion :-/
