Still trying to get the formalities done with. We tried to get gby's DIY stamp to say "Hamakor - Israeli Society for Free and Open Source Software (registered society) - 58-040-213-9", which is the minimum required by law, but we ran out of room. Next time we try to start an NPO, we'll pick a shorter name for it if it means opening up the Open Source vs. Free Software fights all over.

I gave the first of two lectures at Haifux, and the slides are available at my home page in PDF format. The PDF size was HUGE. I think I'll try to regenerate it with a smoother background. The lecture itself went down pretty well. I stopped talking at precisely the alloted time, and there was half an hour of questions afterwards. I think that's a good sign.

My new role as a freelance is progressing much much better than I have ever dared dream. I am getting work orders, and am not idle for one second. This has reached the point where I look at WINE and say to myself that I need to find some time to work on it. I bought shemesh.biz and sshemesh.com, and moved my site there. Going to the old site at consumer.org.il will redirect you to the new site. .htaccess and mod_rewrite strike again.
