PRACE Award 2011
This week I was in Hamburg to attend the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC’11), the main event in High Performance Computing in Europe, where our paper received the PRACE Award this year. I was together with Peter receiving the award, but it is the hard work of the whole team that made it possible. So, congratulations to all the authors!

I finally updated my main server from Lenny to Squeeze, and everything went very smoothly, much less trouble that I had expected. However, one thing that took me some time to figure out was why davical was not working, returning an HTTP 500 but logging no error in the logs.
All I could say was… WTF?!?! Looks like someone messed it up somewhere… a user should not see another user when he is in “Appear as Offline” status ….
So, if you think you are safely hidden from gazing eyes when appearing as offline, think again. MSN seems to have a God mode, and he uses a Mac :-)
