  • Axis Deployment

    Deploying an application to axis (“Axis of Evil”) is more complicated than one might think. First of course you need an application. Step 1: Compile your app and put it in a jar-file. Copy the jar-file to the %tomcat_home%/webapps/axis/WEB-INF/lib/. Step 2: Now you need to generate a WSDL spec from your code. Use Java2Wdsl for […]

  • Festivals 2003

    Wacken Open Air 31.07. – 02.08.2003 – hey it’s the week after my birthday :-). Here is the list of bands playing. There is also a page up for the Graspop Festival in Belgium. But there are no bands up yet. It is FRIDAY 4 – SATURDAY 5 JULY 2003. Empty bandslist as of now.

  • Lovecraft Spam tells of a very interesting nigeria spamming experience. I posted this some time ago on one of our mailinglists. And more to come: Yet another weirdo link. The Mondo Minishow is kind of grosse. Another – more recent funny – was this here “Die Sendung mit der Maus”

  • Whimsy Cards

    This was discussed on the UA Mailinglist, and I found some corresponding websites. Whimsy Card List I think these cards are a nice idea and can be a game enhancement. It is kind of similar to the Universalis system which we might playtest sometime soon, if the rulebook owner ever finds enough people who have […]

  • Apache Axis

    I have been trying to deploy a soap service to axis all day. It is not working at all, first I generated a wsdl description for a client instead of a deployment descriptor now I fixed that and I generated a nice new fresh deploy.wsdd (the -s flag on the wsdl2java does that for you) […]

  • My old rants

    In the olden day when all was better and I had more time I used to write up some of my thoughts on my homepage without some fancy tool: old rants
