For such who want to improve their handwriting a tiny bit:

Another video (in German) from the same guy explains some handwriting basics and what you can do with it with so little effort:

x86 instruction set / optimization resources

Nothing too fancy if you're not into developing x86-related stuff (or don't even know what x86 is!), but nevermind, here are some nice resource I just want to write down, 'cause they're really worth it:


Got some other cool x86 resources to share? Let me know!

Total Commander for Android!

A dream comes true: Christian Ghisler just released the first beta versions (Beta 10 at the time of writing) of Total Commander 1.0 for Android!

So if you - like me - used Total Commander for ages on your Windows box (still would love a proper Linux / Unix port, but take a look at a former article I wrote called "Sunflower File Manager") you definitly want this on your smartphone / tablet as well.

Besides running as a regular application it also supports rooted devices in order to do / access things you normally wouldn't be able to. The user interface is very well designed so that you can swipe to the left / right for getting to the other part of the split view. For me Total Commander for Android replaces file managers like ES File Manager completely -- looking forward testing the final version of it!

Sublime Text

If you write (a lot) of code then you definitly should try out Sublime Text, a relatively new cross-platform (Linux, Mac, Windows) text editor which provides a lot of neat features like the code mini map or distraction-free editing.
Also I think that the price is quite reasonable - 59$ for a multi-computer license bound to you - compared to other alternatives like SlickEdit this really is a good pick. I'll give this editor a go for sure, also stressing it with loads of files which sometimes even make Netbeans or Eclipse crash ...let's see how Sublime Text performs :-)
