blog du jour: Google power. Impressive.

I continued to upgrade to GNOME 2.6 as I had to build a few packages by hand, including CUPS because it made gnome-print crash (library conflict) and Nautilus (because it missed in PowerPC packages). Still missing gnome-panel and gnome-applets because evolution-data-server is still missing.

The CUPS problem has been plagging me as I wanted to print a letter and I could not. Off course I could have used Mac OS X for that (since Abiword now runs natively on Mac OS X an can print for almost a year now), but I really wanted to know. And that broke Gnumeric as well.

(Update): I just read this article (in French) about a law to be studied by senators tomorrow in France: LEN (Loi pour l'Economie Numérique ie Law for Digital Economy). It says that disclosing intentionally security breach of software send you to jail. In short, security consultant will no longer be allowed in our country. Nice. Smart people. Thank you.
