Unfortunately, I can’t post the best and most interesting tech I’m up to, since it’s work related and I can’t share a single clue as to what I’m up to. Really secret stuff.
Instead, let me tell you about the tech stuff I do in my own time:
- Beta testing Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron
- Using kvm Kernel Virtualization, and comparing it with VMware. Soon going to try Virtualbox
- Trying OSX86 on different PC’s. Already got it working on my Acer 4710Z laptop, but in my desire to achieve the proper 1280×800 resolution instead of 1024×768, I trashed it and the graphics system no longer starts. Will try to fix it still.
- Trying to get back into open source development, especially in Java. Still frustrated that I – and Pinoys – use a lot of open source but don’t give back.
- Planning further PC upgrades. Will probably add another hard drive to my desktop for a RAID0 setup. Might get a “branded” case like a Lian Li.
- Reading a lot on my Safari Books account. Read some tech classics. Read a .NET programming book – but haven’t gotten started. Reading EJB3, just in case I need it. Reading about the Linux kernel details, so that I know what I’m working with under the hood.
- Thinking about how to earn from Adsense and online ads again – without spending too much time on it. It’s not really passive income if you spend too much time working on it and thinking about it.
