So much happened to me while the server was down and I badly needed to write something here. Where's a good friendly server when you need it, huh? :)

Linux

Well I first configured my linux box to a confortable level. Nice resolution, nice refresh rate, good old french canadian keyboard layout. It wasn't that easy, I'm still pretty much a newbie running Debian!

Corporate World

I was in a total shock after seeing The Corporation, an I still am. The only hope I have is that I know I can do something to help our society.

After much thought, I took the decision that I will start an open source business. How, when, what will it do? No great idea yet. I'm still a little green behind the ears and need to educate myself a little more. I need to refine my ideas and then create a business model that'll allow me to eat everyday. Their is a way, and I'll find it.

The basis for my business is to manage to harness the power of the community. Hey, maybe I'll write an article on that later!

Word puzzle

I'm writing a educational game for my wife for her master's degree in educational technologies. It's basically a story with mixed words and you have to put them back in order. Very simple. Once done, I'll make it open source. There, that'll be my first contribution ever!
