Lustig ist, dass die Polizei uns nicht sagen konnte ob wir die Fotos jetzt überhaupt machen dürfen oder nicht. Die Herren waren sich nicht einig. Ausserdem wussten sie nichts davon, dass man zuerst die betroffenen Personen fragen muss ehe man sie fotographiert. Darauf wurde aber gelinde gesagt geschissen, als die Amis eben dies mit uns taten. Mal schaun was da noch geht. Vielleicht schick ich ihnen ein paar von meinen Fotos. Psychologische Kriegsführung und so ;)
Fotos werden noch folgen, keine Frage :)
P.s: Manche Beamten fanden es anscheinend äusserst uncool als ich beim zweiten mal wo ich meine Personalien aufgeben sollte, einfach weggegangen bin. Tsss, verklemmte Bullerei. MfG virii

Nearly every musician has a favorite musical scale. Yngwie Malmsteen has the harmonic minor scale and Steve Vai has the lydian scale. Even I have a favorite musical scale, which is the bebop dominant scale, especially the D-BeBop dominant scale.
First of all, here is a table with all the notes, which are in the bebop dominant scale:
So as you see, the bebop dominant scale is a octatonic, so with 8 notes, scale. It is basically a major scale with an minor seventh added. But you could also look at it like a mixolydian scale with an major seventh added.
As I play the guitar, the D bebop dominant scale is quite handy. I like it as I can play the wonderful powerchord progression G5 F#5 E5, but I also can play a C5. This is why I like the D bebop dominant scale. If you look at it, you see that you have two tritones in it. From 3 - b7 and from 4 - 7. So in the D bebop dominant scale: F# - C and G - C#, which is also quite handy for metal guitar players.

Communication is something, that everybody needs. But I don’t want to talk about the absurdity of language but about the complexity of the setup of my communication network. This is so, because I want to ensure my privacy. Also I want to use this on every machine I own, so I don’t have to go through the configuration process every time.
I’ve made an network diagram to explain it:
As you see, in this diagram I use 3 machines. First my desktop pc, named Evolution. Secondly, Darwin, my laptop, and Tortuga my raspberry pi, which is the server.
First of all, I configured BitlBee, to connect to my 4 XMPP servers. All these connection use SSL, to ensure my privacy, but I also use OTR on them to encrypt my messages. BitlBee also connect to Twitter and identi.ca via OAuth, but I don’t use them.
Well, there maybe some negative points in this setup. One is mainly, that I don’t have tested if file transfer over XMPP works. I know that BitlBee supports it, but I see the problem in this specific setup, as all of this is running on my server.
Another problem is, that I’m marked as online in XMPP, even if I’m not there, but I’ve used here a simple solution. ZNC is sending a automessage, if I’m not connected to it. Some people don’t like this behaviour, but I don’t bother.
See you soon, the_metalgamer

Heute gibs mal was vom Chinesen! Warum? Irgendwie mag jeder den ich kenne Chinesisches Essen. Ist auch nicht verwerflich, denn es ist eine fantastische Küche mit richtig geilen Gewürzen und Saucen. Und da dachte ich mir, ich poste euch mal ein einfaches Rezept das ich zum Beispiel heute noch gemacht habe.
Was brauche ich?
- Eiernudeln ( 250g )
- Dunkle Sojasauce
- Hoisin Sauce
- Sambal Oelek
- Nasi Goreng
- Rindfleisch ( 300g )
- Zucker ( brauner am besten )
- Öl ( Maiskeimöl oder Rapsöl )
Wer es wagt dieses Rezept in einer herkömmlichen Pfanne zu kochen, der gehört gekreuzigt! Ihr nehmt nen Wok dafür!!!
Wir fangen damit an, dass wir unsere Zwiebel und die Knoblauchzehe klein hacken und erstmal bei Seite legen.
Dann erhitzen wir den Wok auf höchster Stufe und geben das Öl hinzu. Folgend werden die Zwiebeln und der Knoblauch in den Wok getan und glasig gebraten.
Währendem schneiden wir das Rindfleisch in kleine, mundgerechte Happen und würzen es nochmal mit Pfeffer und Salz. Nun stellen wir das erstmal bei Seite. Jetzt wird ein Topf mit Wasser erhitzt und die Eiernudeln kommen hinein, wenn das Wasser kocht. Vergesst nicht etwas Salz ins Wasser zu tun!
Wenn jetzt Zwiebel und Co glasig sind, kommt das Fleisch hinzu. Vergesst nicht immer gut zu rühren.
Nun haben wir Zeit für das Herzsstück des Gerichts! Wir nehmen eine kleine Schüssel und bereiten die Sosse vor. Dazu vermischen wir 4 EL Kokosmilch, 1 EL Reisessig, 1 EL Sojasauce, 1 TL Zucker sowie 1 TL Sambal Oelek und 1 EL Hoisin Sauce. Wenn nun das Fleisch angebräunt ist, geben wir die Sosse hinzu. Jetzt heisst es ständig umrühren!
Herkömmliche Eiernudeln müssten nach 4 Minuten fertig gekocht sein. Wenn dies der Fall ist, dann geben wir die Nudeln mit in den Wok und vermengen alles gut. Auf die Nudeln kommt je nach Geschmack etwas Nasi Goreng. Nun das Ganze noch 2-3 Minuten köcheln lassen. Danach vom Herd nehmen und servieren!
Das hier ist die absolute Basis version. Viel besser schmeckt es wenn man Frühlingszwiebeln nimmt und noch etwa 200 g Bohnensprossen. Wer mag kann sich noch ne Paprika klein schneiden und dazu geben!

After last year's initial success, the Luxembourgian Hackerspace syn2cat and the Chaos Computer Club Lëtzebuerg, once again organize a summer-camp for hackers and technology enthusiasts from Luxembourg and its surroundings.
HaxoGreen 2010, a pun on the leetspeak term 'h4x0r3d' will take place from July 22nd till July 25th in the southern town Dudelange in Luxembourg.
Whether you want to attend lectures and workshops, hack on your projects or just share 3 midsummer nights outdoors, socializing with other hackers, artists and geeks, HaxoGreen is the place to be. No need to be a 1337 H4X0r, we welcome all inquisitive people from around the globe.
Registration for HaxoGreen is open since February 23rd and early registration is highly recommended as there's only a limited number of tickets available. The camp is a comparatively small and cosy event that lives from its visitors participation. You may submit your lecture or workshop idea on the following or other topics at the camp's Participate! page:
- Green IT and Green Hacks
- Virtualized Environments
- Cloud Computing
- Darknets and Hackerspaces
- Computer Security Incident Response and Mitigation
- Do-it-yourself Science
- Molecular Gastronomy
- Wilderness Survival Tactics
- Amateur Robotics
- Radio and Mobile Communications (GNURadio, etc.)
- Electronic Art (vj, dj, installations etc.)
- Net Neutrality, Intellectual Property and Privacy Aspects
- Active/Liquid Democracy and Political Activism
- Sustainable Housing and eco-friendly Living

The 5:16pm train brought me back from Linz/Upper-Austria yesterday. It also brought some blisters, exhausted legs and an innumerable array of impressions from Ars Electronica 2009, some of which I'll try to relay in this blogpost.
I bought a daypass on Sunday, which might or might not have paid off, I'm not quite sure.. 33€ is quite a lot of money, especially when the train ticket already cost you a hundred bucks. To anyone going to Ars in 2010 I suggest to buy a festival pass, spend at least 3 days on the various exhibitions and talks and prepare yourself a schedule (because theirs clearly sucked).
Ars Electronica Center (AEC)
The Ars electronica center clearly has an abundant array of interesting stuff sitting around. With their Fab-, Brain-, and Bio-labs on the -3 floor, they touch a broad variety of subjects, from cyborgs via sensor-enhanced art to 3D printers and lasercutters. This is actually somewhat like MIT's Medialab in Boston, only that this is clearly more exhibition-focused and less a working space. And clearly a lot smaller.
The picture above is a web made of wire straps.
The sculpture in the above picture does actually sense when you go near it and it reacts by moving its various "body"-parts.
Knock! Music Program (by Novmichi Tosa)
The second floor actually has some cool hands-on stuff that you can't actually touch, which is sad. But anyway, the Knock music machine is a pretty cool concept of an semi-electric music instrument. There were several components to it, the picture below is just one of them.
I actually found a couple of youtube videos of the machine in action. I just hope you understand some japanese ;) (Another resource I found is Novmichi's sketchblog.)
loopScape (by Ryota Kuwakubo)
Another great thing on the second floor was obviously loopScape. In contrast to ordinary computer games, this is one where you actually have to move around the "screen", which is made out of leds. Steering your fighter-jet with a wireless controller, your goal is to shoot down the enemy's fighter. To get all of the action, you can't stand still but have to move around to actually see everything that is happening in this fast-paced game.
Quartet is a huge machine that produces sounds from resonating wine-glasses and golf-balls being projected onto wooden xylophone bars. I hope I managed to capture some of that motion in my still.
Höhenrausch was an exhibition above the roofs of Linz. Walking on a wooden structure, you get from exhibit to exhibit while having a grandiose view over the city. You could even take a ride in a Ferris wheel.
One exhibit was really awesome! If you stood below the sprinklers with an umbrella, you'd hear 8-bit music as produced by the frequency of the water being released. The umbrella's tissue serves as a simple membrane and produces astonishingly clear sounds.
Tantalum Memorial - Residue (website)
Relay station for a social phone network used by the congolese diaspora in London.
And yes, though this thing is not your most recent asterisk pbx, it actually worked and was relaying calls for people on that network. From the project's website:
"'Tantalum Memorial' is a series of telephony-based memorials by the artists group Harwood, Wright, Yokokoji, to the people who have died as a result of the “coltan wars” in the Congo. The installation is constructed out of electromagnetic Strowger switches – the basis of the first automatic telephone exchange invented in 1888. The title of the work refers to the metal tantalum, an essential component of mobile phones"
Pursuit of the unheard
One of the things that kept me awake on Sunday evening was the "Höllenmaschine", one of the first, if not THE first synthesizer ever. Built by Bob Moog for Max Brand. As it says in the brochure: "The first wiring diagrams for the Max Brand synthesizer by Bob Moog are dated 1957."
On Monday morning, I decided to check out the MIT Impetus exhibition nonetheless, even though I thought I had already seen most of it in the Medialab itself.
And oh and I was so wrong!
Again, a little excerpt from their website:
"littleBits is an opensource library of discrete electronic components pre-assembled in tiny circuit boards. Just as Legos allow you to create complex structures with very little engineering knowledge, littleBits are simple, intuitive, space-sensitive blocks that make prototyping with sophisticated electronics a matter of snapping small magnets together. With a growing number of available modules, littleBits aims to move electronics from late stages of the design process to its earliest ones, and from the hands of experts, to those of artists, makers and designers."
Various impressions from Linz
One thing that I noticed already on Sunday were these "stencils". Only, it only came to me on Monday though that these weren't your ordinary stencils. What is so uncommon here is that the stencils are actually areas that are cleaner than the area around it. So what you see here is kind of a 'cleaner's graffiti'. (No, I'm in no way affiliated to Mazda or any other automobile manufacturer)
Finally, a last picture of the "Fassadenfestival":
A couple more pictures will be made available on my soup.

Dylan Tweney wrote a fantastic article on Wired.com about hackerspaces in the US. NYCResistor was profiled along with Hack DC and Noisebridge. A fun and interesting read…
While many movements begin in obscurity, hackers are unanimous about the birth of U.S. hacker spaces: August, 2007 when U.S. hackers Bre Pettis, Nicholas Farr, Mitch Altman and others visited Germany on a geeky field trip called Hackers on a Plane.
“It’s almost a Fight Club for nerds,” says Nick Bilton of his hacker space, NYC Resistor in Brooklyn, New York…
