1. Jenkins gradle build succeeded with failure

    Today we bumped into an interesting issue in the jenkins builds of some android based applications. The gradle commands succeeded but then suddenly failed the build with this most cryptic message ever:

    Total time: 1 mins 20.492 secs
    FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.
    * What went wrong:
    Already finished
    * Try:
    Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output.
    [Pipeline] }

    Since this came out of nowhere without any modification on the build servers we where flabbergasted since the builds ran fine on our local machines.

  2. GTalkSMS mobile alerting through xmpp protocol

    Recently I bumped into GTalkSMS when I was surfing the net for manuals on irssi & bitlbee using to chat so I could move away from pidgin.

    This GTalkSMS tool is quite cool. When am at work or at home my mobile isn't always in my sight. Therefore it could happen someone has to call me a few times before I answer the call.

    (biggest frustration of the girlfriend meaning you have to answer your call within a time period of 3 seconds because you're working in IT)

    Using this nifty tool you can control your mobile through your favorite chat …
