The years is on it’s end and this is finally the last post (I guess). It was a very hectic year. On day life I worked on two different huge projects. At night life I joined Apache Software Foundation as Committer for Commons, Committer and PMC for Log4PHP and today I have been elected as PMC for the Logging TLP. That’s great, I really enjoy working with the Apache people. And could learn lots, of course. In that time I helped with Commons Compress 1.0 and Log4PHP 2.0.0. Unfortunatly I had several ideas for which I simply had not time left. So I wanted to put my Json Component to Commons and write a Compression Component for Apache Camel. Well, maybe next year.
I read several books this year, but could not find any extraordinary ones. Except for the very good new novels of Boris Koch. This man is quite a rising star in germanys youth book division.

On the synths part of life, I upgrade to Logic 8 which is MUCH fun. Unfortunatly shortly after I bought it, Logic 9 came out. Guess I will not update the next time….
Let’s see what the new year brings. I wish you all a merry chrismas and a happy new year!
