Well, things are getting a little better here.
First, my IPv6 connection is up and running. Now, I only need to find out how laforge managed to make apache 1.3.19 bind to IPv6 addresses, and I'll be a happy person. The best part of it is that I managed to get my cable provider to remove some filters they had had in place that prevented the IPv6-over-IPv4 tunnel to work (ip-proto-41). And it only took me 3 weeks to make they understand what I was talking about lol ...

Also, things at work are improving. I'm managing to get some companies and schools to partner with Conectiva for Linux software development. All we need now is to get the partnership contract (or whatever other form it takes) done, so we can start working. I'm accepting sugestions about softwares to assign development to them.
Oh, almost forgot ... My new credit card just arrived, so I managed to order some books. Amazing enough, Amazon still have the best prices on the books I usualy buy.
I just received a letter from my ISP (in Brazil, you have to subscribe to an ISP plus the Cable provider... ouch) telling I can get a copy of WinXP for only R$ 29,90 a month (about US$12.50). Lol ... Really funny. I'm just entertaining an idea about writing to tell them that they can get a copy of Linux for only R$ 0.00 a month, but I'm afraid they will not know that I'm taking about. It's amazing how stupid people can be sometimes.
