New Equipment for the Mad Scientist's Laboratory



  • With the help of some demi-godness[1] some new equipment has just arrived in my Mad Scientist laboratory today!

    The folks of Trolltech/Nokia sent me a brand new WeTab to play with:

    !http://www.sectionone.de/~volker/qdn/wetab.jpg(WeTab)!

    Now I need some more spare time to create my first cool app for a mobile device - and a good idea - it's not that easy when you're used to desktop stuff :-)

    Thank you very much Alexandra and Marius!

    fn1. A parcel service called "Hermes" :-)



  • Congrats, you deserve it!



  • Very good Volker!!! I am waiting for an E7... Hope that happens soon :)

    Good Luck!



  • Congratulations Volker, Andre is right you well deserve it, you spread a lot of tips, wisdom and experience here so Trolls have all the reasons to reward you.
    Congratulations!



  • Congratulations, Volker!



  • Congratulations :D


  • Moderators

    Congratulations! Hope you enjoy it! Thanks for all your tips and advice!



  • Thank you Volker, always professional and willing to share, well deserved.

    Thank you also for devnet bug reports, suggestions and hanging with us on the moderator channel. You have truly made the devnet a better place :)

    -Marius



  • congrats Volker, it looks SOOOOOOOOOOO cool ! :) or should I say Kool ?



  • thats really cool joy. Hope to see it on italian stores too. Congrats Volker



  • You can't be serious, Marius :-)

    And as promised some times ago, I'll keep posting of course. DevNet is truly a nice place to hang around, it's really fun!

    And I will try hard to not fall into sarcastic mode too often :-)

    And of course: thank you to all you guys for the congrats!

    But I am, and this goes for all the Mad Scientists, and those that aspire to be one: You guys make working on the devnet a joy for me (a bit selfish here) and the team, knowing that what we're doing is attracting this level of commitment to Qt. I work on several other more traditional websites as well - and there the visitors are quickly reduced to "statistics" - but on the devnet it's different - it's real people!

    That might sound silly, but it's the truth :) It's Saturday, a good day for silliness!

    I can easily picture you, Andre, chetankjain, Gerolf, vass and the others in the "DevNet Meta group":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/groups/devnet_meta/members as reality checkers in our brainstorming sessions :)



  • Thats really cool:-) Congratulations and Good Luck.

    Thanks for the mention Marius. You trolls and the other folks and moderators at devnet are the best and tonnes of fun to work with. I totally enjoy myself here.

    Now where is my WeTab ? heh heh

    Thanks, nice to be mentioned like this :) I like hanging out at DevNet a lot. And indeed: aspiring to become Mad Scientist too :-)



  • You know, it's great to ship surprises too. ;)

    And like Marius said, it's very satisfying to work on this site because it's real and very concrete people we build it for. You guys are a pretty awesome bunch!



  • /me bows to Admin Supreme Alexandra :)



  • Cool Volker! congrats!, you really deserve it

    For a good learning app, maybe you can build a DevNet and Labs/Blog reader with some web services magic ;)

    Just start with that, and you'll get more ideas as you go for making it really cool.



  • Alexandra, Marius - I cannot but give back the compliments! It's so cool to have you here in the forum and on IRC. You're open to suggestions and from a user's point of view, QDN is a pure dream: one of the rare sites where we as users can actually influence the development of the site.

    And of course you all have a fine sense of humor! It was not only once where you made my day (or almost spit my coffee all over the desktop and computers :-) )



  • Congrats, to Volker, He is always available here for help in the discussion...



  • This is really inspiring :)
