Hi, I am Martin Ueding, a physicist (B.Sc.), student of physics and programmer.
Since 2011, I study Physics at Bonn university. It is just so much fun to learn how the fundamental things in the world work. See the Studies section for the study related material.
I also started a blog again, there I write about lighthearted topics, mostly in German.
My most popular project are the thinkpad-scripts which I wrote to get all the screen and digitizer features working effortlessly on my ThinkPad. It is a collection of Python modules that take care of docking and screen rotation.
For several years now, I have been almost paperless. The main challenges are papers I get from other people and hand written notes. The former can be faced with a scanner, the latter was more interesting. I own a Wacom Tablet since long before I started to become paperless, but I never had a good software for note taking. Since I did not find one at first, I wrote jscribble. After I was almost done with that, I discovered Xournal which I now use most of the time.
