I’m happy to announce that Eyal Schneider, the collegue of mine, has been finally convinced to open a blog to share his knowledge and experience.

Eclipse Galileo RC1 Update Manager RT Equinox P2 is still not good enough for me yet

with one comment

I’ve just failed to install JDT over clean Eclipse Platform RC1 (and this time a bug has been opened):

An error occurred while installing the items
session context was:(profile=PlatformProfile, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.provisional.p2.engine.phases.Install, operand=null –> [R]org.eclipse.ant.ui 3.4.0.v20090504, action=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.touchpoint.eclipse.actions.InstallBundleAction).
Error while loading manipulator.
Error while loading manipulator.

Retrying causes the message immediately. Reverting to the previous installation stage does not help. Restarting does not help either.

It’s very sad that what they call Release Candidate is still rare. Waiting for the release…

PHP Frameworks popularity estimation

with 2 comments

About 2.5 years passed since I posted the development activity comparison of major PHP frameworks. Since then I’ve got about 4.5k hits from search engines, which IMHO is not such a bad sample to summarize people’s interest in each of them.

Again, no conclusions – just pure numbers 🙂

Windows XP x64, Cisco VPN Client, VirtualBox and Windows 7

leave a comment »

As you can easily guess from the subject, I had compatibility issue with installing Cisco VPN Client over my Windows XP x64 installation – the bastards refuse to release 64-bit version drivers. That was not a big deal for me, since I used to connect to the office from my ThinkPad T42 anyway.

But just these days Windows 7 has been pre-released, so to play with it a bit I installed the x86 version of it over VirtualBox.

Hence, in this very moment I’m tunneled through 6 network interfaces:

  1. Some neighbor’s wireless router
  2. Wireless adapter
  3. VirtualBox’s adapter
  4. Cisco’s virtual adapter
  5. Cisco’s VPN server
  6. Office workstation’s adapter
