Moving Home

Just like many people have done before with an Advogato's diary, I'm now moving the not-100%-geek-related posts of mine to another site, http://caio.ouie.org, my webdir at Mozilla Brasil nowadays. I have a very long TODO list to write about in here but I'm going to comment only a few of them.

Telecentros

It could be "Telecenters" if you really prefer but, the fact is that I am loving to work in this project. I never had thought about to work in such a project, for real. Last week we did receive three Compaq CDS524 486 machines with only 8MB of RAM (you remember or not, this hardware model is more than 10 years old, at least in Brazil). So, the mission was: to create a thin client network with almost 300 of these machines with very low resources, for the kids of poor elementary schools. There was a "Windows Boy" in a meeting about this that said those Compaqs was nothing more than trash and past. So we did it. It's working, greatly :) and I'll post soon a screenshot of it running GNOME 2.6, kernel 2.6.8.1 and with more info...

More of the Same

Yet about my new job, next week the "São Paulo's Cultural Centre" will through Sun Microsystems donate to us two SPARC servers to build another remote terminals project but this time for musicians that in our mind would just arrive there, sit down, search for a specific music or opera or something to study (audio files for now, in the MP3 format, not .ogg... sorry) then open up a PDF (not a open format again, sorry DjVuLibre) with the tabs or partitur then tada! :) it's going to be marvelous, just hold on...

Engrish.com

Thanks TaQ I'm a little ashamed because my bad bad english :P in a old post I had said "Internation" instead of "International", what becames funny in time "internation" remembers something like "to intern", he suppose. You know, learning another language is not that easy, specially when the new language does not have any similar roots with yours mother language (portuguese came from latin if you didn't know). Thanks for the tip anyway TaQ :)

Mozilla Brasil

The brazilian project of Mozilla is now 2 years old! To celebrate the date, we're doing some secret things that we'll tell a bit more soon, but for now, check out my little gift for Mozilla Brasil, a cake :P

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
