Ingmar Bergmann is dead

Sorry to hear, that Ingmar Bergmann died at the age of 89. Though I never met him, nor I know many of his films, he was part of my daily life: nearly always, when I told someone my name, „Ingmar Bornholz“, they asked me ah, like „Ingmar Bergmann“ ..?! So, I think it’s time to get some Bergmann movies, to get to know who was my „alter ego“… 😉

GPS Tours

Since I got my Blackberry 8800 with GPS I’m more and more in watching out for tour infos in GPS compatible formats (like gpx etc.) – And I’m quite happy to find more and more sites covering tours (bike, hike, skate,…) with these infos. One which I just stumbled upon is gps-tour.info, which has thousands of GPS tours round the world: download them, or get google maps overlays, add your own, rate them: this is very high quality UGC…

@typepad: I’m pissed….

Dear typepad crew: I started blogging with Movabletype back in 2003, moved to typepad in 2004 and since payed for this account. Typepad is slow since months, and I never got that much spam like during the last weeks – can you give me any reason, why I should not change to WordPress? I pay 140 bucks a year… Damn! Please update your spam filters!

OSX: Virtual Desktops

Will be a feature in Leopard, but works as well with tiger: virtual desktops. Just tried you control: desktops . Which is free for a limited time and then is about 30 bucks. Works great!

UPDATE:Using virtual desktops now since some days, and it has come to a really handy feature: I really think of buying this piece of software although I’m going to get leopard as soon as it comes to the stores.
