Android without Google account
I really like my Android phone, but I don't want my data on Google servers. First I thought, why not, but when I tried to remove the Google account they forced me to reset my phone to factory settings.
Fortunately there is now an open-source solution to the problem: Zarafa with Z-Push. It works great and all my data is on my server. What is left is a good Android Market alternative.

I have generated a web of gipfel-referenced pictures. This is somewhat similiar to the display of geotagged pictures on google maps, but here the pictures serve as picture and map at the same time:
You can start by clicking on the above screenshot. If you move the mouse over the picture, you will see where other images are hidden. The html/css stuff is taken from http://evan.nixsys.bz/note/ and only works with firefox or konqueror (IE will not work). The images were taken by me and Peter Seiderer. The process to generate such a web of pictures is fully automatic. You just need to geo-reference the pictures with gipfel.
