Due to lots of trouble with ongoing projects I had / have no time to do further testing and post more about VMware 4.
But I will as soon as possible.

Beeing ill gives some spare time playing

Posted by Michael on March 13, 2009

I’m quite ill for a week now and it will take another 2 weeks to recover from to this horrible influentia.

Can’t stay in bed all time I use some of this spare time for experiments, like first steps with Amazon Webservices for example,
maybe I blog about these experiments

Time is passing so fast …

Posted by Michael on November 15, 2008

Since March I’m working in a project which is getting bigger and bigger eating up up all my time.

This is the reason for having nearly no time for blogging.

Time passes by …

Posted by Michael on January 23, 2008

1.5 year since my last post, had a really hard time, lots of trouble with customers and projects plus some private.
So no time for any progress in lisp development, forgot most about I think, so better re-start from the basics.

A major change is my move from M$ Windows to Apple Macintosh / Mac OS X as my standard working enviroment. At the moment running Leopard on a normal PC (bought a family pack and lots of other software already) I’m looking forward to buying a 24″ iMac plus a Mac Pro this spring and maybe later a MacBook Pro, the MacBook Air is nice but yet neither afforable nor powerfull enough. In the meantime have to learn a lot about development with XCode / Objective-C / Cocoa, really fascinating ! Reminds me of the NeXT Cube 🙂

Concerning Lisp: Lispbox is coming with OpenMCL 1.0, ReadyLisp with AquaMacs and SBCL, if you work with Eclipse maybe Dandelion is of interest for you. And there is a version of newLisp for OS X ( I know newLisp is not CL, but it is interesting ).
