I have switched from SuSE to Mandrake and have updated the
page accordingly. Along with this switch went an upgrade from KDE 2.x to 3.0.2
For those who want to visit us, I have added a
But I'd still appreciate an advance notice. ;-)
Postings in the FlI4L newsgroup indicate that people find it rather
difficult to install and configure
since the new maintainer choose to remove the configuration program.
To ease the pain I have written a small utility
which generates the secret needed for opt-dyndns.
I recently stumbled over an article in a Borland newsgroup which
in turn pointed me to another article posted on the Borland
Community website. This inspired me to start using
like Templates in Object Pascal
and to write my own article about it (in German only, but there
is a link to the original article at the end).
You might have heard about the severe flooding in eastern Germany.
I would like to help a little by urging you to give some money
to the victims (Spendenaufruf
in German only).
The page looks different again, maybe I should stop reading the
articles on web design in c't magazine. ;-) In addition there are
I have just realised that on my
I still had links to the WikiWiki and a local copy of my home page
both located on my router. These are of course no longer
available because I don't have flat rate internet access
any more therefore I have removed the links.
But to make up for it I have added an interesting link to an article
called "The case against C". This article is already
a few years old but unfortunately still valid.
These pages now use cascading stylesheets for formatting purposes.
I hope people using older browsers can still read them. I have
tested Opera 6.0, Konqueror and Netscape 4.78, all under Linux,
and Lynx (textmode). They all looked OK. Netscape and
Internet Explorer 3 and earlier will probably garble the pages, but
I have stopped caring about theses fossils.
I said it before, but because I have just terminated my flat rate
Internet access it becomes more important:
I have stopped support for opt_dyndns and since
I don't have a flat rate any more, I won't do any development
on it either. If anybody else wants to take over you are welcome,
but be warned: You will get lots of support emails.
The download link for MxFromSq was broken. Why didn't anybody
tell me about this? I only found it by chance when looking through
the log files.
Several people asked me how my site search works:
Its simply a free service offered by Google, which everybody can
use. Register for it at
Google Search Solutions
registrieren. There you will also find instructions on how to
set it up.
This site has now got a search function
curtesy to Google's sitesearch.
I have again made some changes to the layout (learned a lot when I
did the pages of headwork-consulting GmbH (archive.org). The similarities
in layout are no coincidence. ;-) ). It looks a bit
better IMHO. The quote at the top is also new, but I don't think
any non German speaker will know where it comes from.
Effective immediately I will drop support and further
development of all my FlI4L related OPT packages and HOWTOs.
I am tired of people bitching about bad support or bugs or
whatever in software they got for free.
Version 2.1.9 of
has been released. Netcat now has got a timeout of 20 seconds and
the config program was compiled with the Borland CLX.
My homepage is about to move to a different address. I have set up
a mirror which will shortly become the main address at
I have added an overview of the link categories to the navigation
bar. It just had become too long and complex.
now has a few entries.
Version 2.1.2 of
has been released. The package has been adapted to FlI4L 2.0.2 and
the configuration should now be easier. If you use a local mail server
(e.g. opt_extremail) you need to configure less. If you want to do
something more complicated for example forward to a remote SMTP server
this is also possible but with a bit more work than before. On the
plus side all valid Fetchmail options can be used.
I nearly forgot: It now uses Fetchmail 5.9.6, curtesy of Henri van Riel.
I have added a link on the
page to the website of the new maintainer Henri van Riel.
are now freeware.
Since the topic frequently comes up in the newsgroup I provide
for download. Please read the warning before downloading it!
Version 2.1.9 of
has been released. There is a new service dns2go.com and a minor
problem with FlI4L 2.0.2 has been fixed.
Version 2.1.0 of
has been released. It is a new package that disables the console
login prompt on FlI4L 2.x.
I have run out of space here so I moved some older versions of
to a different webserver. You will only notice this, if you try to
download these files, the links will point to www.taeger-online.de.
Special thanks go to Florian Taeger for making this possible.
Version 2.1.8 of
has been released. There is a new service dyndns.dk.
I have slightly updated the
SCSI boot HOWTO
for FlI4L which was previously only available from the
Fli4L homepage and and made it available here.
Version 2.1.7 of
has been released. The only change is a bugfix in the file
'dyndns.conf' which contained a superfluous line feed.
Version 2.1.6 of
has been released. There is a new service, no-ip.com, and the
data for selfhost.de have changed. Two new entries in the
I have converted a message that I posted to the area Delphi.ger
in Fidonet on 2001-12-25 to html via aft. I make it available here
in the hope it might be usefull to somebody. Sorry, this is
in German only for now. It is about
Object Pascal Interfaces.
Version 2.1.0 of
Version 2.1.5 of
has been released. The documentation is now available in html format
and some minor bugs have been fixed in the documentation. There are
no new features in the actual package! If it already works for you,
you don't need to update.
The zip archive of
2.1.1 was corrupted because I exceeded the space allocated by my
provider for my homepage, I just deleted a few files and uploaded
it again. This time the archive is ok, I downloaded and checked it.
Thanks to everybody who made me aware of this.
