Ok, no diaries entries for a while, hope I can start finding a small amount of time to keep writing them again.

A lot has happened since my last diary entry, too much stuff to decide where to start.

I gave a conference & seminar on Linux yesterday. I was impressed my how many people attended. It was great, and the the atendees where very excited about linux. I talked about Free Software for about 30 minutes, then Rodrigo talked about the server side of linux for about 15 minutes, and then I demoed gnome and all the new cool apps. Gnumeric, abi, evolution, sodipody & nautilus.

This guys are so excited about it that I am going to start a a Linux User group for my school. The first meeting is going to be next friday. Let see how that goes.

Because of the Linux talk, I took my computer from home and installed it in the school for a couple of days. Having good internet access is great ! I downloaded OpenOffice binaries yesterday in less than 10 minutes, it was about 50 Mb. I am just not used to this kind of internet connection. The bad part of having my computer at school is that I can't hack on Sundays and Saturdays after 1 pm.

Well, I've got lots of stuff to do. I need to buy one of those cool PDA's to get all organized and stuff.
