Computer geek from Paris, France.

I've been using computers since I'm a kid, starting with a zx81, then a Spectrum, and a SAM (cool name, eh). Then I wrote a few useless games and demos for the Amiga, a few dozens programs for the HP48, and I'm now using Debian (x86 - other platforms are too expensive for me) as my main operating system and development platform.

Currently my main interests are VideoLAN, a multimedia player that can play DVDs, DivX, and network streams, and the Debian project. Yes, I know I'm late at fixing bug. Harass me!

I hate OpenOffice with my guts.

I could not help but add my little contribution to the fantastic Hot-Babe debate.

Shit.

SUCON'04

I gave a talk about writing portable multimedia applications at SUCON. Not many attendees, people were probably tired (too bad, they missed a lot of hairy pussy), but I had enjoyable talks with MPlayer and Xine developers afterwards. And remember, kids, the autotools rule!

IBM rules

The IBM Thinkpad service fixed my laptop's broken motherboard within two days. They even changed the whole LCD screen because I reported a faulty pixel and a little stain. Wow.

I hate Slackware

Slackware is probably the only modern Unix where you cannot run command foo as user bar. Of course, su bar -c foo seems to work, but only to a point: -c foo is not a flag for su, it is passed to the user's shell. And unlike on FreeBSD, Debian, or even Solaris, there is no way to bypass this! You have to run your own wrapper around setuid(), or change the user's shell. If the user's shell is not, well, a shell, all sorts of weird things happen, and you simply cannot execute commands as a given user in a reliable way.

Why didn't they keep the su from Slackware 3.1 ?
