In Austria each boy has to do either a military service or a civil service after finishing school. I went for the civil service as a paramedic at the Red Cross Austria. It have been 9 amazing months. I learnt alot about the human body, psychology and our society in general. But as you might guess, after those 9 months you are really ready for a holiday. So that's what we did.

Two years after I first went to Apples WWDC it was time to pack my stuff together once again. I decided that as I got two weeks off from my civil service I wanted to spend as much of it in beautiful California. So that's what I did.

So I recently graduated from my school, "HLW für Kommunikations- und Mediendesign", which roughly translates to highschool with focus on communication and media design. Part of that process were the A levels or high school diploma ("Matura"), which I finished last week. Now I'm oficially no longer a student. Weird feeling after atending school for 13 years.
Anyway, students have to write some form of thesis for the A levels. My topic was RSA, especially the maths behind it. As it's written in german, it's not too interesting for everyone, however I thought it might interest some on what I had to work on the last year. This is the written part of the thesis, and this pdf contains the slides (I had to present a random excerpt of the whole presentation). Both files were created in LaTeX, which was its own challenge ;-)

If I had to describe Little Snitch in one word I'd probably call it a firewall. But on the other hand the software made by the Vienna company Objective Development is so much more. And even more so with the recently released version 3.0.

A few months after the last release, it is again time for an update to ChapterMarker, my little tool to help podcasters enhance their podcasts with chapters. Nothing too fancy, but I think still worthy an update. Read on for more information and where to get ChapterMarker!
