• 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.

  • BrewpubsBerlin keeps track of which brewpubs I've visited in Berlin and elsewhere in Germany. It includes my impressions, web links, addresses and a Google map showing them all. PubsBerlin lists most of the English and Irish pubs in the city.

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

  • If you've been here before, check out RecentChanges to see what's new.

What's new?
  • Added an improved ColorPicker for the ImageJ app (March 20)

  • Reviewed the movie Arthur & Claire (March 20)

  • A new version of my Ping & Net Android app has been released which has a few small improvements and bug fixes (March 16)

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 dormant 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 It's sort of outdated now, although still functional.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. Also a few fun or marginally useful applets that I resurrected from the dustbin.

  • JavascriptUtilities has some web development and JavaScript utilities: a regexp tester, a keycode tester, a browser plugin lister, and a text flipper for fun
