haxent is back and functional. I'm happy.

I'm back to the good side. Hello to my friends and just forget bad things. I like linux and I'm very glad to hack or just use Linux. I'm glad because we can help people and we are part of a big community. Ok, I'm happy today :)

Hacking on SymbianOS. What a crap thing!

Social Life

Look what my friend epx did for me here. I guess is time to write a new POSIX OS ;)


Enjoying Air, Paul van Dyk and Yo La Tengo.

UML, XML, SAX, DOM, SOAP, CORBA, RPC, .NET. Oh how I hate these buzzwords ;) But it's ok. I'm enjoying my new job.

Social Life

Friday was great! Having fun with two nice girls. Good place, good talk (I still a little shy... that's not me!), good beer and tequila.

Quoting Lag Wagon: 'I hate my friends, I hate my friends'. Just kidding, I love them.

Shame, I stopped Linux for while.


Oh! I'm now MacOSX addicted! Linux has to copy much of MacOSX look and feel if they wants to be the #1 on desktop. KDE or GNOME (why they don't stop? It's enough) is far away from MacOSX, but keep working KDE!


New job, new OS, new language, new world, new ruda. Now i'm hacking on SymbianOS with C++ and Java and playing with mobile and pda devices.

PS: delete ruda, delete world, delete language, delete OS (it's supposed to be a joke ;)

Social Life

Got a kick from a girl last sunday -- bad, I'm feeling like Charlie Brown.

My young sister is moving to Fortaleza, one of the beautiful places in Brazil. Hey, looks like I'm going to good beaches soon.

Hi! How've you going?

Last month I hosted my good Australian friend clausen for one week. Oh man, great time. Clausen is a nice guy with strong principles and we spend a lot of time talking about life, friends, differences between Brazil and Australia, Free Software, girls, Linux and more. Also I got some classes from him about compilers, very good!

Good news! After I've been layed off by Conectiva I'm on working now! yes! me, eliphas, osvaldo, kojima, gwm and bruder are opening a new company called Haxent as you can see in our home page (Portuguese only) at

Tomorrow I will go to Rio Grande do Sul to port a software to Linux (yes! Linux rocks or as Clausen likes: "Linux na veia kra!") and this is our first work as Haxent. Wish me good luck ;)
