A typical plague of the internetz has hit this blog. It had no posts for a long time. -silence-
I am sorry for this, but even if it might surprise some people, sometimes there are more important things in life than keeping your blog updated.
Anyways here a quick overview of things that changed or matter before I get bugged at writing again:
Continue reading “Latest on GNOME, Totem AirPlay, libimobiledevice 1.2.0, iOS 4.3, gdk-pixbuf-psd, Cherokee on iOS and openSUSE repositories”
As read on the IE developers blog today, it appears the encouraged engineers have finally started to look out of their basement windows.

Note to myself: Selling your old Sony PSP and writing that Firmware 1.50 is installed makes eBay delete your auction with “MC047 eBay Listing Violation: Copyright Violation – Unauthorized Item” reasoning the auction was selling “illegal copies/backups” or advertised to do so.
At least they keep auctions where people advertise their PSP having “the super duper” M33 firmware installed…
Bah! Well, what’s left for me is a shameless plug to the new auction…
Update 28/05/09: Unbelievable, the new auction which I carefully checked to not contain any freaking reference to anything copyright violating has also been removed… Also no clue why as I only received the typical standard “don’t sell illegal copies/backups” E-Mail. Contacted eBay support, let’s see…
It appears though that I am not alone. There are a couple of people having trouble selling their PSP on eBay. However in contrast to my case where I list the original unmodified 1.50 firmware, they had used rather problematic “wording” like “Pandora Battery” or “Custom Firmware/M33” and alike.
Reply and solution 28/05/09: Great, I have received a polite and exact explaination from the eBay security team. The problem for eBay really was the installed 1.50 firmware on my PSP which is considered “open/hackable to circumvent technical protections” (like copy protection). They recommend installing the latest PSP firmware before selling first.
