Using the Eclipse Host OSGi Console

Gnome audio distortion
Sunday, December 19, 2021
After the last update of gnome I’ve heard some stuttering or distortions when playing audio, e.g.
youtube videos. It seems, that there is some buffer underflow of audio data while transfering

Code signing with let's encrypt certificate for your github pages domain
Thursday, September 16, 2021
If you want to sign your code, you need a certificate. You can create a self-signed certificate, but
then the users still need to accept your signature. Code signing is often used for eclipse and eclipse plugins.
If you install a eclipse plugin, which is not signed, you always need to say “Install anyway…”. If your
plugin would be signed - especially with a certificate that is trusted - this dialog wouldn’t show and the
plugin is installed without notice.
