I've been using computer for more than 15 years

Started with an Apple II, on which I learned assembly
and basic. Then we trade up the Apple II for a Macintosh LC
with 2mb Ram and 40 Mb HD - I upgraded the ram to 6MB,
bought Think Pascal (should have bought Think C) and filled
the disk :-).I then got an Atari Falcon030 and started C,
but did mostly assembly. Followed a bebox, I did some BeOS
development for some time in C++, and felt betrayed by Be
Inc. when they shifted to x86. I've used Linux and OS/2 too,
I don't use OS/2 nor linux, I prefer the BSD philosophy.
Now I play with href="">MacOS X.

work for
title="Rediscover Email">Mozilla as the QA
lead for Thunderbird.

GnuPG public
key is available href="">here

I'ma available on those Instant messaging networks:

The next major release of Thunderbird is around the corner and needs some love

We just released the first beta of Thunderbird 30. There will be two betas for 30 and probably 2 or more for 31. We need to start uncovering bugs nows so that developers have time to fix things.

Now is the time to get the betas and use them as you do with the current release  and file bugs. Makes these bugs block our tracking bug : 1008543.

For the next beta we will need more people to do formal testing - we will use moztrap and eventbrite to track this. The more participants to this (and other during the 31 beta period), the higher the quality. Follow this blog or subscribe to the Thunderbird-tester mailing list if you wish to make 31 a great release.

For those of you attending FOSDEM

In a a few weeks it will be Fosdem week-end. Something I’ve been attending since 2004.

This year I’d like to tell people that care about email privacy that fosdem has the biggest pgp key signing party in Europe. If you use pgp, or gnupg you might want to join the party.

To do so you’ll need to register before the 30th of January and follow the detailed instructions at .

update: People are sending plenty of keys it’s going to be a great event.
