Adblock Plus and (a little) more

New job · 2007-06-15 17:49 by Wladimir Palant

I have been very silent recently, but I think it is time to give an update on what I am doing. Today is officially the first day on my new job — I am joining the developer team behind TomTom HOME. Nice at least one of my hobbies (Mozilla) has made it to a job. TomTom allowed me to stay in Cologne but I expect going to Amsterdam rather frequently.

    Terrific, my friend. Very awesome. I think this would be a good company to work for. Tom-tom is a well (*cough*) advertised product in the U.S. Seems like quite the nav system.

    Congrads :D

    Congratulations on the new job,hope it goes well for you. Huge fan of Adblock plus.
    Whilst you’re at TomTom ask them for some linux support for TomTom sat Navs,at the moment I have to use a virtualised Xp to update it. TomToms are Linux based after all,one of my reasons for choosing the brand.
    I can’t browse the web for 5 minutes without Adblockplus!!

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    I actually did ask that yesterday :)
    They want to support Linux and Mac OS X, it just takes time to get there.

    Hi I saw that tomtom home2 is available for Mac Os X, but can you tell us more about the state of the linux’ port?


    Ps: I hope you enjoy Adventszeit and Christmas’ markets, that’s what I miss most from Germany.
