  • You've reached the web space of Ulf Dittmer. This site looks a bit different than other places, as it's running on wiki software, and I can't be bothered to make it look visually nice. Hopefully you've come for the content. If you're looking for something in particular, use the search box on the left.

  • RecentMovies has notes about movies I've seen, going all the way back to 2004

  • Being a fan of brewpubs, I keep track of which ones I've visited on BrewpubsBerlin. It includes my impressions, web links and addresses. There's also a page with a Google map showing them all.

  • Some stuff I've written, mostly tech articles and book reviews, can be found in MyWriting



What's new?
  • Reviewed the movie Wind River (February 11)

  • Version 2.5.0 of JForum2 has been released with lots of new features (including mobile-friendly views for many pages) and bug fixes (February 5)

  • Relaunch of this site based on wiki software. Nothing fancy, but easier for me to maintain, and with some goodies thrown in such as site search and page versioning (February 2)

  • Movie reviews of Loving Vincent, A Philadelphia Story and Gremlins (February 2)


My software projects

  • My Android app Ping & Net for TCP/IP network diagnostics is available in the Google Play Store for free.

  • I'm committer to JForum2, open source web-based forum software written in Java, and cewolf, a JSP tag library for embedding charts in Java web apps (although that's in hibernation now).

  • ProfileViewer helps make sense of Java profiling information and GNU gprof output. It's sort of outdated now, although still functional.

  • PrologJava: Thinking about combining Prolog and Java? Here's a BSF engine for JLog (a Prolog-in-Java system) that I created some time ago

  • CpuSimulator6502: j6502 is a 6502 CPU simulator written in Java. There's also an assembler that generates object code for it. For those too young to remember, the 6502 powered computers such as the Apple //, the Atari 400/800, and various Commodore models like the PET-2001 and the C-64.

  • CodeSnippets contains various small pieces of code -mostly in Java- that may be of wider interest
