Just in case you might have not been able to catch me the last 2 weeks: Yep. Right. For this long time now I was not really available to nearly anybody and this was on purpose. After 2013 which really was a very, very busy year I’m really happy to say: Yes, it was really a great year but it also got me closely to the edge – So yes: A lot of challenges but I think (and hope) they could be mastered very well, and of course it also has to do with the people I work with: So thanks each and every Zarafian. I’m looking forward now to a great new time with new energy after 2 weeks of relaxing time with my family. For all Zarafa interested reading this what I can tell you officially for 2014: 2014 we will release 7.2. There are a lot of great new technologies we are working on. Our Marketing and Sales-Team will keep partners and customers in the loop, but from what I can say...

Germany, the NSA and real security…

Whoever doesn’t know it – It’s election year in Germany. I couldn’t really believe what I’ve seen today – forwarded by a former colleague of mine, Harald Milz. It seems there are ongoing crypto parties where people are suggested to use crypto software such as PGP or S/MIME for encryption of their mails – which btw – is of course a good idea anyways – BUT: I highly doubt that Mr. Jimmy Schulz is/was really aware of the fact that S/MIME and PGP are not able to encrypt mail headers (It simply is technologically impossible, read below). The simple reason for my assumption is: You do not recommend people to do something when you (would have to) know it doesn’t help much. Period. So there are two theories I have – Either he is fully aware of the fact and he therefore just wants to calm down the whole situation (which for...

Zarafa Tour & Code Challenge

There is a lot happening at Zarafa currently. We can say that we already have had the most successful year in our history, and next to that I personally almost can’t await the upcoming Zarafa Tour. As the program has already been published I can add some info which is really exciting. We are going to release more than we ever have published at the past Zarafa events. As you all remember, every Zarafa Event had at least something great to come up with. This time it will not only be one thing – there will be multiple things – All together way more than we ever had. We wanted to move away from handling things like we did a bit before (like pre-announcing what is not done or too far from some form of release yet) and concentrate on the real stuff to come up with – and that at least at usable state. The Zarafa Team has been (and still is) working hard to make the...

Well, indeed.   It was about time. After being too busy the last years to maintain anything really well on the private side, I’ve decided to pull up a blog again. And this time I really try to keep up with it. I just think that way too many things have happened in the past where I was not really able to reflect my personal opinion to more detail than FB and others allow to. This blog primarily covers my passion – Technology. But: I personally think this is not the only thing really worth about sharing thoughts. Starting with my personal passion about open source (especially Zarafa & openSUSE) and ending up with political thoughts on the European Union, Germany and other political stuff I highly recommend everybody should really care about and not just pass by the news and live with it. So I actually ditched my personal, old, self-developed blog (which would have...
