Alive Alive Alive

Yup, it's going to be a déjà vu. "Long time no post" and all that stuff you have read already in some others Advogato's diaries :)

Nineteen Eighty-Four

This is what Advogato reminds me while I'm typing this... because I just edited all the olds posts of mine, changed the past, etc and I am not ashamed hehe in fact it's pretty curious to see me becoming part of the Ministry of Truth. You'll can never know what I changed and for what.

Free Software Festival

This is a later note but it's okay, since I'm just wanna to document that: I gave a speech on how the Telecenters of São Paulo works (and how it could or should also) two weeks ago together with Lisboa (a coworker), in Bahia, Brazil. The event was marvelous, really. We took some photographs but they do not cover the 4 days we spent in there. Thank your very much Tiago and Tassia! BTW, the slides are in several formats for download if you wish to check it out.


I'm still trying to move from São Paulo to Curitiba, yeah. I went there for the last holiday and this time was the best. I've never been so happy in another city visiting friends, beatiful places and of course, Danielle. I had an interview at Conectiva too but I'm not studying right now so it was a "no" just because that, but it's quite ok; I was too happy to think about it more than enough. Thanks for the boost, pals!

Jornada 690-E

Wee! It's coming, to me! Lucas called me last night to tell me my Jornada has arrived and right now his carrying it to me at work. I don't have enough bucks to buy a really good notebook nor a desktop machine (I certainly won't buy something to use for just months or something) then I bought this very nice handheld. There are some ports of Linux to it (right, Debian-based distros) and even ports of VIM, XFree and others apps to run inside WinCE, that comes built-in :)

It's a SH3 processor from Hitachi, with 32 megabytes of RAM and 133mhz. There's one PCMCIA slot, IrDA support and a serial device but the best of it is... a real keyboard! Yes, keys! And sure, there are some others common stuff: take a look at some photos of the Jornada 690-E. Ah, the idea to buy a handheld came while boto was showing me his HP 200lx in Curitiba :P

For me it is not a problem this Jornada be almost 5 years old... it's gonna be great, boy! I can't wait anymore, although I'm thinking right now my old motto "expectations overrated".
