mailbox3000 - started and canceled

I recently started a project, called mailbox3000. It was supposed to be a messaging protocol that is suited for mobile communication, but still decentralized by design. Lots of concepts I liked very much, but I stopped it right now.

Why? The problem is simply one: Time. If you have a full job, and you want to spend some free time with something else than coding, it is simply not feasible. To start a new project, you need primarily one thing: Time. Since I like going out and summer is approaching again without any reasonble success in mailbox3000, I will rather stop now than having it going on without ever succeeding.

I guess, the best project to invest time in is then matrix. I will see what I can do here, maybe there is reasonable things to help with. If anybody is interested in mailbox3000 or wants to take over, please tell me! Otherwise, the project will run till the domains have their minimum running time and then it will cease.

Moving the domain

Since I am not in Germany anymore but in Switzerland, I changed the domain. Now, whenever you type in “komkon2.de”, you will be redirected to “tolledomain.ch”, which, literally translated, means something like “nice domain”.

Calendar updated again.

I recently updated the calendar with all the dates that could already be seen for 2016. I also added a list of annual events and when they approximately are, so you can directly see if there is something even if I didn't update the calendar.

Check out the calendar!

Calendar updated

Just for the records: I just updated the calendar. I hope I caught all important dates from 2016 which are already settled.

Accelerating Skylake 2D graphics

I recently upgraded my PC to a Skylake i5 (Core i5 6400), which has the new Intel graphics. However, 2D graphics was extremely slow on my 4k monitor. When I wanted to play a small webm, I could be sure Firefox would freeze; switching applications always took half a second. However, switching the acceleration method of the Intel driver from UXA (which was loaded according to Xorg.0.log) to SNA fixed that.

The following content for the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf fixed the issue:

Section "Device"
        Identifier "Intel Graphics"
        Driver "intel"
        Option "DRI" "3"
        Option "AccelMethod" "sna"
EndSection
