At first I thought it was a joke. A plane smashing throught a building just has to be a joke. Then I saw the picture. From that point the information flood has been enourmous.

Figures. A week after I applied for a job in a firm, that firm closed the local office. Well the former employees are looking for a new employer as a team. So I still have some chance of working with these people. Oh well.

Wow. Been a while since my last entry. Posted an article asking for opineons on the Advogato redesign. So far peoples opinions seems to go 50/50.
Guadec 2 came and went. I held a speech about gimp with nomis. Wen't pretty nicely. The only downside was that the UI talk was simultaneously, so I was unable to attend. Job situation seems to be a bit unsure. So if anyone needs something (T-Shirt, website, ..) designed on a freelance basis, feel free to contact me. I should have my portfolio up shortly on my homepage.

Well. Everything is fine now. Yesterday I installed debian, then started to set the net connection to work. Of course the .deb was broken on the disc(damn windows-ftp-program). Today I went to school and got the working deb. Of course after installing the deb, the "nifty" isdn config "tool" didnt work at all, and I was forced to erase all remains of isdnutils autoconfig and install my old isdn config files from the old slackware installation. It worked right away. Surprisingly there were no more problems, and I'm beginning to install gnome/gimp/etc back. The exam which is tomorrow doesn't help one bit. www.gnome.org is back and so is my homepage. Got to go study. Agh.

It's been a while since my last entry. Anyways I finally decided to switch to Debian 2.2 from my faithfully served Slack. It did hold up together for 3 years. The final problem was freaking docbook, which I couldn't get to work, and of course that damn agetty whose source I could not find.

I recreated my homepage a few days ago, it also moved to http://www.gnome.org/~drc/ which is kind of ironic, since www.gnome.org started having hardware problems the next day.

I'm also considering about putting up a portfolio for my web page. I'm still short on money for my new monitor, so I need new jobs.

And now it finally happened. I got eye glasses. And army health examination is on saturday. Damn I hate mandatory army.

Exam weeks in school suck. Especially when they start tomorrow.

I really really hate reading to exams.

Watched the movie "13th Floor" today. It was actually quite good.

Its suprising how much dust my cpu fan collects in 2 months. Well,

removing it reduced the sound the fan was making quite a lot.

Ok. Now the big version of the Advogato logo for printing purposes is finished.

It'll take some time until we get the shirts made, whatever way we make then.

I would love to start working on bigger version of the Advogato logo, for t-shirt purposes,
if that damn cvs gimp would compile. Well, I guess I'll just cvs update and hope for the best.

Back from Guadec. Had an ok flight. Kind of annoying to see 1,5 meters of snow after a warm Paris. Oh well.
