It's so easy to fall in love

It's been a while since I had baby photos to show, Felix grew just too quickly. But we two have a lot in common, and the latest addition to the list is the love to his sister:

Julia was born late night of the 12th of july in Fürth and now we're complete ;)

10 inches in one year!

Tomorrow is the last power-of-two day in the year and this happens to be Felix's birthday (if you remember 2^4*2^3=2^007 - a year has passed). I just finished burning a DVD with the movies we recorded and a slideshow of the best pictures and it's a strange feeling seeing him grow up in 5 1/2 minutes.

But this date is more important than that: Maren returns into her job on monday and I'll stay home with him for two months. In this time I will still be part of the KDE and the openSUSE community, but won't have a lot of time for either.

After a very relaxing night, we can finally plan the dressing code for sunday.

How to install perl modules

Ever called a perl script and got this?

Can't locate Regexp/Common.pm in @INC (@INC contains: SCRIPT /usr/lib/perl5/5.10.0/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.10.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .) at SCRIPT line 18.

Well, use zypper:

coolo@desdemona#STABLE>sudo zypper in -C 'perl(Regexp::Common)'
Reading installed packages...

Just two calories?

At times when we have only 512MB Compact flash, we always had to download the pictures off the camera, but with these affordable 4GB cards, it can take a while before we see the need to download. So here is my favorite.

Experiments with Rpm payload

I appologize to everyone thinking WTF? at the following, but I have to blog
about it, otherwise I'll explode :)

This is the reference for our current payload:
-rw-r--r-- 1 coolo suse 36966400 13. Mär 09:42 coreutils-6.10.tar

Then I did lzma -1 to lzma -9 and these are the numbers:

When the cat's away, the mice can play

It may work earlier for other couples, but it didn't work out earlier for us. So yesterday was officially the first evening mom was out alone - that is without being called home at 7pm because coolo ran out of ideas how to calm the baby.

Back in Fürth

After almost one month, we're finally back in Bavaria. First I picked up my wife in Berlin, where she had a week of vacation. Then visited Rostock for almost 2 weeks and then drove back to Berlin on 26th where my mother married. Then we celebrated new year in the lovely St. Joseph's hospital because Felix got really, really sick and we had to wait over an hour for the blood values and it happened to be the midnight.
