From Roundcube to RainLoop

Roundcube Webmail is a great piece of software when you need a self-hosted Webmail. It ahas some nice features and is quite straight forward to run.

But when it comes to using it on a mobile device, the fun disappear right away. The default skin, which fits well on a desktop display, fails to render anything useful on a small device. Even when using the Melanie2 Larry Mobile skin and its plugins (Mobile plugin and roundcube jquery mobile built on top of jQuery Mobile), the result sadly is far from being neat.

So, looking for an alternative to roundcube, I did a short search on teh net and found RainLoop which actually behaves very well on the Desktop and on a mobile device.

The config part is really easy as the web interface allows to set things up quickly. On the plus side, it doesn’t need a RDBMS to run (thumb up for this) and it has native/ready-to-use config domains for Gmail and Outlook (although that may not seem a killer-feature it was quite harsh to do it with Roundcube for I had to set up DNS aliases to do the same).


Nightmare is a brilliant short movie directed by Patrick “dKsL” Stürmer, which is a tribute to two great russian Quake 3 players, LeXeR and uNkind.

The movie starts in a dreamish sequence introducing the players reaching the Elite Level of Q3. We then follow the players during their fights in the arenas, both of them trying to escape and frag their opponents…

Available as the 60 fps 2.5 Mb/s WebM version or the 30 fps 2 Mb/s WebM version and the original MP4 versions: 30 fps, 60 fps. Pictures are also available in a screenshots gallery.

Happy birthday to GNU!

Yes, happy birthday to GNU!


And thank you for the fish 😉

I lol’ed

Thanks to the following joke Shraght told me:

After the Great Britain Beer Festival, in London, all the brewery presidents decided to go out for a beer.
The guy from Corona sits down and says, “Hey Senor, I would like the world’s best beer, a Corona.” The bartender dusts off a bottle from the shelf and gives it to him.
The guy from Budweiser says, “I’d like the best beer in the world, give me ‘The King Of Beers’, a Budweiser.” The bartender gives him one.
The guy from Coors says, “I’d like the only beer made with Rocky Mountain spring water, give me a Coors.” He gets it.
The guy from Guinness sits down and says, “Give me a Coke.” The bartender is a little taken aback, but gives him what he ordered.
The other brewery presidents look over at him and ask “Why aren’t you drinking a Guinness?” and the Guinness president replies, “Well, I figured if you guys aren’t drinking beer, neither would I.”


Only once…

Funny, particulary when once again you can read that “there’s a positive link between online piracy and visits to legal music stores, irrespective of people’s interest in music. The study concludes that the music industry should not see piracy as a growing concern.” (from TorrentFreak).

Kokolores123 – A talented graphist to look at


After a 365 days render work all along 2012, meaning 1 production made per day, kokolores123 started a Weekly project for 2013.

This talented graphism artist is really worth checking out, if original graphic art is appealing to you and you aren’t afraid of KOS, you probably should check this website or this fb page.

Overview of spams received

Having a blog, either as tiny as this very one, lead to getting quite a lot of spams, sent as comments. Currently it’s more than 100 spams per week; here is a short overview of those spams contents:

  • the vast majority of spams are in english except for some in chinese.
  • there is more and more long text spams
  • the most aggressive spams (by count and post size) are related to “sac Longchamp” (a “sac” is the french word for “bag”)
  • except for those, the majority of spams are generally related to shoes (“fake ugg boots”, “Nike”, “jordan shoes” and “Louboutin”) or glasses (“ray ban”)
  • others are either random or related to some sports events (“NFL Jersey” for instance seems quite popular)
  • only 2 sex-oriented spams were received (the web is no more what it used to be… ^^)

Coffee FTW

Teh stratégie du Gouvernement pour le numérique

Publiée le 10 octobre 2012 sur le site du gouvernement, cette stratégie expose de grands principes immédiatement en contradiction avec la réalité factuelle existante.

Le premier axe stratégique par exemple : « Au-delà de la couverture intégrale du territoire en très haut débit dont il reprend le pilotage, le Gouvernement agira pour permettre à tous les citoyens, quels que soient leur âge, leur parcours et leur lieu de vie, d’accéder aux possibilités offertes par les technologies numériques. » : c’est beau, ça se lit comme de la poésie, dommage qu’ils aient toujours HADOPI.
