stun.de.
What do you think Reyk and Gerd ?

Gone to dinner with my parents because they go on holiday

I wonder which they forget something or not. As usual Happy

19th october 1999

A little (big) outage in one of our partners site Happy))
Hey Mr. Firewall… there’s something wrong no more packets
here….
And in fact… it wasn’t the firewal, it wasn’t the communication
line,
it wasn’t an power failure… just another cisco byte the dust
Happy))

Bought something nice for Aya. Happy For XMAS of course.

18th october 1999

Big Y2K Novell meeting at work…. this red-package stuff is

Installed a new mixing tap in the bathroom and also a new
shower.
Wow 9 different ways of having a shower Happy a lot of massage functions
really interesting this shower-developement Happy

Replaced a few parts of my room-seperators, now it’s much more

Watched so many japanese movies and documentations on
television…
…oh this will take a long time to fully understand the
japanese.

16th october 1999

Our family visit left this morning, and COLT Telecom is burrying
new fiber
cables in front of my house. Happy)) If they’ll tell me which one of these
thousands
of fibers is my gigabit internet connection Happy)))))))))))

15th october 1999

Set up the Cannaserver on Linux. Now my japanese dictionaries are
working,
german, english and japanese, with Kana and Kanji input Happy)))) Yippie !!!

14th october 1999

Installed 4.7 again, now with a little bit more priviledges.
Happy LC25

More updates for www.stun.de and some last configuration steps
before the
installation in Frankfurt.

13th october 1999

Installed netscape 4.7 at work, without being administrator…. big
mistake
now my NT is a little bit confused. Time to hack a little
bit.

Two new developement kernels released… we’re now up on
2.3.22.

Oh my head…. too much party yesterday.

12th october 1999

My trukish coworker gave a party because of quitting his old
company,
and after that it’s my moms 50th birthday. Big family
party…..

What a day.

11th october 1999

Solved the ssh problem on www.stun.de. Connections are no longer
refused, when we’re using
dynamic IP ranges. Net-fu is broken… hmmm… don’t know
why.

Kernel 2.4 will be already released in november 1999, hmmm… nice,
so I can introduce
Aya into newest technology from beginning.

10th october 1999

Today our scientific institutes are opened for the masses.
So I’ll go and see what our nuclear-fission reactor is doing.
(I just hope that they can finish in my lifetime….)

Discussed some of my visions of nuclear fusion, and again I feel
like they don’t
want to hear new theories. Maybe they’re all to horny doing
practical experiments,
than thinking about easier, not yet realizable theories.

2.3.20 released yesterday…. boys… you make me trouble…
doing Stun.de updates for the kernelgrapher.

9th october 1999

Bought a new pillow for Aya… sorry I couldn’t find a plastic one
as in Japan,
do you agree on feathers ?

Reyk called me on the phone and agreed to install the www.stun.de
server in
Frankfurt on 28th.

Gerd agreed to be available on 28th for testing with the server
from Munich.

Had big fun together with Gerd and Eva at Shananigans Irish
Pub,
where Mane Maniac played live guitar and harmonica blues.
And bought two CD’s Happy

8th october 1999

FTP-Problem solved, now it’s officially a software bug on the
clients FTP.
And thanks to standards, we’re not allowed to use a different
software,
because of some software contracts…. Happy))) Another point for commercial….
(negative, of course)

Tonight there’s an ANIME special on TV, most thing in original
japanese audio
with german subtitles. Cool for learning languages I think,
especially for
learning slang.

Managed my holiday so that I can pickup Aya in Frankfurt on
29th.

7th october 1999

Our big ftp transfer problem is escalating today, and we finally
found out why
it doesn’t work. It’s clear now that netmanage’s chameleon ftp
can’t handle
passive ftp transfer correctly. When we installed WS_FTP the
problem was gone.
Bullshit ! I can’t understand why all these people just want to use
commercial
products, because of support they all say…. yeah… fuck… Not
one word about
bugs, only fixes and new features published. Every single shareware
or freeware
is better documented and support than that fucking commercial
stuff.
And then the customers make me responsible if something doens’t
work….
Fuck ! I can’t do anything when those assheads don’t know how to
write correct code !
And you customers…. you wanted that shit from MS !
So don’t blame me !

6th october 1999

Forgot to mention that 2.3.19 is out, and on cutting edge you can
read the fascinating
release date(time) 4-Oct-99 24:44 Happy))))))) yeah 24:44
Oh my god…. others are figthing with Y2K problems and we didn’t
recognize that we
already have to work 25 per day now ! Happy)))))

At work there’s more and more shit stacking….
Anyway, I feel very good at the moment, I need this
stress…..

5th october 1999

Had an almost perfect day, I feel so much energy…
everything went fine. Solved a severe firewall problem with active
FTP connections
to well known services. Went to the companies doctor and he said
that I’m in good
condition and the sight of my eyes is almost as sharp as the sight
of an eagle.

Compiled Nedit for AIX today, and rm vi Laugh Not really….

More radioactive shit happened, this time in south korea.
And in London a train crash occured…

4th october 1999

What a week, so many ANIME in original japanese language on TV, I
have to record
all of them, for Aya and me. (Nice to learn languages by reading
subtitles in german)

Discovered a collection of precompiled CPAN modules, wow that fixes
my union semun
problems…. Happy Tricky !

There’s another date of www.stun.de installation in
Frankfurt.
If everything goes ok, I’ll install the server together with Reyk
on 27th october
this time, I’ll drive by myself and the day after in the very early
morning
I can pick up my lovely girl from airport. Kiss 😑 !!!!!!

Greenpeace says still four times higher radioacivity in Tokaimura
but all people
are already back in their usual life, becuase the government said
it’s already over.

3rd october 1999

Still birthdayparty-damaged…

Have to go to Oktoberfest today, with my coworkers…. oh how I
hate Oktoberfest,
and next year I have to show Aya. I wish I could get just one year
off.

Aya wrote me strange mails, I don’t know what she means, and I
don’t feel
good by reading them….
I guess my answer are not much better in meaning….
maybe it’s all because of culture difference.

Hey you people out there, how do you manage culture problems inside
your
relationship ? I can’t stand that japanese “saying nothing, block
everything”
behaviour any longer. Am I the only one, or is it my fault ?

2nd october 1999

Big birthday-party of one of my coworkers, I hope it’s not getting
too late
tonight. Everyone of us has prepared a little poem, song or
present.
Will be nice I guess.

Ohhhh… my head…. someone switch off that light, and kill that
noise in my head.

1st october 1999

Discovered lots of dictionaries on the net, but everything
precompiled,
but I need unencrypted versions for my CGI-Server.

Played around with XJdic.

A little (big) outage in one of our partners site Happy))
Hey Mr. Firewall… there’s something wrong no more packets
here….
And in fact… it wasn’t the firewal, it wasn’t the communication
line,
it wasn’t an power failure… just another cisco byte the dust
Happy))

Bought something nice for Aya. Happy For XMAS of course.

18th october 1999

Big Y2K Novell meeting at work…. this red-package stuff is
chasing me… Happy))

Wrote a script to analase the firewall rule usage to see or
manage performance optimization.

17th october 1999

Installed a new mixing tap in the bathroom and also a new
shower.
Wow 9 different ways of having a shower Happy a lot of massage functions
really interesting this shower-developement Happy

Replaced a few parts of my room-seperators, now it’s much more
smooth
to slide and installed distance plates for the two iron
ropes.

Watched so many japanese movies and documentations on
television…
…oh this will take a long time to fully understand the
japanese.

16th october 1999

Our family visit left this morning, and COLT Telecom is burrying
new fiber
cables in front of my house. Happy)) If they’ll tell me which one of these
thousands
of fibers is my gigabit internet connection Happy)))))))))))

15th october 1999

Set up the Cannaserver on Linux. Now my japanese dictionaries are
working,
german, english and japanese, with Kana and Kanji input Happy)))) Yippie !!!

14th october 1999

Installed 4.7 again, now with a little bit more priviledges.
Happy LC25

More updates for www.stun.de and some last configuration steps
before the
installation in Frankfurt.

13th october 1999

Installed netscape 4.7 at work, without being administrator…. big
mistake
now my NT is a little bit confused. Time to hack a little
bit.

Two new developement kernels released… we’re now up on
2.3.22.

Oh my head…. too much party yesterday.

12th october 1999

My trukish coworker gave a party because of quitting his old
company,
and after that it’s my moms 50th birthday. Big family
party…..

What a day.

11th october 1999

Solved the ssh problem on www.stun.de. Connections are no longer
refused, when we’re using
dynamic IP ranges. Net-fu is broken… hmmm… don’t know
why.

Kernel 2.4 will be already released in november 1999, hmmm… nice,
so I can introduce
Aya into newest technology from beginning.

10th october 1999

Today our scientific institutes are opened for the masses.
So I’ll go and see what our nuclear-fission reactor is doing.
(I just hope that they can finish in my lifetime….)

Discussed some of my visions of nuclear fusion, and again I feel
like they don’t
want to hear new theories. Maybe they’re all to horny doing
practical experiments,
than thinking about easier, not yet realizable theories.

2.3.20 released yesterday…. boys… you make me trouble…
doing Stun.de updates for the kernelgrapher.

9th october 1999

Bought a new pillow for Aya… sorry I couldn’t find a plastic one
as in Japan,
do you agree on feathers ?

Reyk called me on the phone and agreed to install the www.stun.de
server in
Frankfurt on 28th.

Gerd agreed to be available on 28th for testing with the server
from Munich.

Had big fun together with Gerd and Eva at Shananigans Irish
Pub,
where Mane Maniac played live guitar and harmonica blues.
And bought two CD’s Happy

8th october 1999

FTP-Problem solved, now it’s officially a software bug on the
clients FTP.
And thanks to standards, we’re not allowed to use a different
software,
because of some software contracts…. Happy))) Another point for commercial….
(negative, of course)

Tonight there’s an ANIME special on TV, most thing in original
japanese audio
with german subtitles. Cool for learning languages I think,
especially for
learning slang.

Managed my holiday so that I can pickup Aya in Frankfurt on
29th.

7th october 1999

Our big ftp transfer problem is escalating today, and we finally
found out why
it doesn’t work. It’s clear now that netmanage’s chameleon ftp
can’t handle
passive ftp transfer correctly. When we installed WS_FTP the
problem was gone.
Bullshit ! I can’t understand why all these people just want to use
commercial
products, because of support they all say…. yeah… fuck… Not
one word about
bugs, only fixes and new features published. Every single shareware
or freeware
is better documented and support than that fucking commercial
stuff.
And then the customers make me responsible if something doens’t
work….
Fuck ! I can’t do anything when those assheads don’t know how to
write correct code !
And you customers…. you wanted that shit from MS !
So don’t blame me !

6th october 1999

Forgot to mention that 2.3.19 is out, and on cutting edge you can
read the fascinating
release date(time) 4-Oct-99 24:44 Happy))))))) yeah 24:44
Oh my god…. others are figthing with Y2K problems and we didn’t
recognize that we
already have to work 25 per day now ! Happy)))))

At work there’s more and more shit stacking….
Anyway, I feel very good at the moment, I need this
stress…..

5th october 1999

Had an almost perfect day, I feel so much energy…
everything went fine. Solved a severe firewall problem with active
FTP connections
to well known services. Went to the companies doctor and he said
that I’m in good
condition and the sight of my eyes is almost as sharp as the sight
of an eagle.

Compiled Nedit for AIX today, and rm vi Laugh Not really….

More radioactive shit happened, this time in south korea.
And in London a train crash occured…

4th october 1999

What a week, so many ANIME in original japanese language on TV, I
have to record
all of them, for Aya and me. (Nice to learn languages by reading
subtitles in german)

Discovered a collection of precompiled CPAN modules, wow that fixes
my union semun
problems…. Happy Tricky !

There’s another date of www.stun.de installation in
Frankfurt.
If everything goes ok, I’ll install the server together with Reyk
on 27th october
this time, I’ll drive by myself and the day after in the very early
morning
I can pick up my lovely girl from airport. Kiss 😑 !!!!!!

Greenpeace says still four times higher radioacivity in Tokaimura
but all people
are already back in their usual life, becuase the government said
it’s already over.

3rd october 1999

Still birthdayparty-damaged…

Have to go to Oktoberfest today, with my coworkers…. oh how I
hate Oktoberfest,
and next year I have to show Aya. I wish I could get just one year
off.

Aya wrote me strange mails, I don’t know what she means, and I
don’t feel
good by reading them….
I guess my answer are not much better in meaning….
maybe it’s all because of culture difference.

Hey you people out there, how do you manage culture problems inside
your
relationship ? I can’t stand that japanese “saying nothing, block
everything”
behaviour any longer. Am I the only one, or is it my fault ?

2nd october 1999

Big birthday-party of one of my coworkers, I hope it’s not getting
too late
tonight. Everyone of us has prepared a little poem, song or
present.
Will be nice I guess.

Ohhhh… my head…. someone switch off that light, and kill that
noise in my head.

1st october 1999

Discovered lots of dictionaries on the net, but everything
precompiled,
but I need unencrypted versions for my CGI-Server.

Played around with XJdic.
