Older blog entries for Eitch (starting at number 31)

Today was a great day! I did not do anything special, but it was good. All day sitted and doing nothing on the Internet. Ahh... There was a good thing at all! Me and some friends began a music marathon. We began listening all albuns from King Diamond. And that's it: 8 hours and 40 minutes of King Diamond's music!

I'm missing a lot my computer... The motherboard is malfunctioning and a new one is on the way. Until that, I have to use this stupid computer from my brother, that only have Windows! Argh! (Why Windows? He only play games)... But with luck, I will get my computer today and finally use Linux! And begin on making useful things.

Ohayou! LONG TIME no see... I have changed in a quite good ways. Let's see what the hell I'm talking about!

  • I'm more mature. Now I'm 17 years old, and I'm happy with this...
  • I don't love anyone anymore. This is good because I don't have to spend time thinking on someone. Instead of this, I just think on doing useful things for an useful world. Yes, I'm talking about Open Source!
  • I'm more addicted to King Diamond and Mercyful Fate... Oh, you don't know them? You should, but King Diamond is like: You love it, or you hate it. In my case, I love his music!
  • I'm trying to go back on my contributions... It's not easy to do this because I'm just stupid, but I'm really trying...
  • I'm letting my hair grow up a lot... Long hair rocks :D
  • I'm reading more things, and doing some philosophy on all things in the human life, specially human feelings. I hope that I will make some documents about this, but not now.
  • I don't depend on anything from now on to live... Oh sorry. I depend on myself!
  • I'm planning on learning Japanese. I love this language!
  • I'm planning on learning to play guitar too.

    I think this is a bit of all, it's early morning here at Brazil and I'm kinda tired... So I will do some silly things (like my last post), eat, and go to bed. I don't know if I will keep posting things here but I will try (again). Planning on making a big update on my personal home page and working on some other pages... I'm planning to create a site devoted to my favorite hobby: Anime. And of course, helping Linux pages all around with something that I can do. Wish me good luck. No one reads my diary, but if you're reading this, send me an e-mail telling me what you think, or just to say hello. With this I will know that someone is alive. Oh sorry... My e-mail isn't functional, so send an e-mail to an alternative address. Thanks A LOT! More news later, or tomorrow, or next week, or next month, or next year, or next life... :P

  • Doing silly things :-)

    Spent some time making backup from my linux box, then installing Conectiva Linux 5.1 instead of Slackware 7, and then copying back my files into my new system. After that just read about the GGI and KGI project that acme told me.

    I also read some old linux-br messages to get something useful.

    Arrived yesterday at Curitiba! Spent all day with bruder and his wife. Today I woke up and went to Conectiva (when I am right now), very good things they have here... :)

    Just meeting people and doing useless things. I'm waiting Aurélio (verde666) to come here at Conectiva to talk to him.

    Maybe I will play some quake with the guys here, later...


      I'm very satisfied with my new computer and it rocks.

      I don't know what i'm doing these day I really don't know. I think i'm too excited with the idea on going to São Paulo and Curitiba (Both here in Brazil)... but will this idea works? Will I travel? Wish me good luck guys... Many difficults are around.

      But this isn't good, I'm not working on anything, but I need to! I really need some motivation to work on many projects... Since last days, I'm feeling tired to work on the Eitchdot project. I'm a simple guy who needs work to do. I have much time to do anything I can, but there isn't much thing to do. I think the disposition to code, work and *live* is the result on motivation. I think a guy/girl who have much motivation from other human beings are all success. Or am I making a mistake? ...

      I continue to live my life and to be a very nice Apprentice :) And if you are reading this now, thanks for reaching the end of this post. I REALLY DON'T CARE ABOUT THE PAST, SO I WILL CONTINUE TO LIVE MY LIFE AND TRY To WORK A LOT.

      "So understand, don't waste your time always searching for those wasted years, face that, understand, and realize that you're living in the golden years..."

    Got my new computer today, really cool :) Now I will have more resources to do my work. Spent all night installing and configuring my system (onboard things isn't *that great*), wich is running Slackware Linux, and will run Debian and Conectiva Linux too.

    Also, right now is almost 6 AM and i'm going to play some tennis this morning, and at night go to a punk rock show (yeah, i don't like punk rock very much, i prefer metal, but i don't have anything else to do this night...).

    This time i'm REALLY planning my travel to São Paulo/Brazil, and Curitiba/Brazil. It will be more cool to work together with the guys from Conectiva, instead of working on the "remote" side. Wish me good luck! thanks ;)

    Finally, I saw a picture from the "girls" from Conectiva, and gatinha is very gatinha ;)

    Bought my new computer and it will arrive today at 6pm! Finally i will have a good machine, instead of this Pentium 100 with 24MB of RAM. I was simply tired on slowly. The Pentium 100 now have one objective: be the "mainly" server, running a quakeworld dedicated server, apache, mysql and named.

    Anyone here reading my diary? I need sugestions... wich distribution should i put in my new computer? Debian or Slackware? Or maybe both of them? Well, feel free to email-me (take out the "nospam"). I will be glad.

    I have been invited to write some weekly newspaper articles talking about Linux! That's great now i can write articles for the masses. These days i'm really working a lot on my "projects", and they are helping me a lot on learning Linux, and contribuiting to it. The next version of Eitchdot will have an english version, so i will publish it at freshmeat, and i will rewrite all the code to be more friendly to others understand. And i'm having a lot of ideas to put on it... lets see if i will do it all right.

    Ah, can i make a question for you guys (and girls)? What games do you all play on a Linux box? No one? Every one? Well, thanks for reading this diary entry :)

    Finished the translation of the LFS-HOWTO. I spent all night working on it and now i'm going to contact the author of the HOWTO, LDP, and LDP-BR. The HOWTO is a great document for those who want to learn more about Linux and its distributions. Reading and translating it gave me an idea: my next project is to create a linux distribution made from scratch, with the help of the HOWTO. I'm gonna learn a lot about making and mantaining distribuitons. And the good news is that i'm going to put the whole project under GPL, and anyone will can help me. If you want to see the HOWTO translated, simply go to my translation page.

    I also get together with the guys from Conectiva to make a little project that i'm going to like, and i'm very excited with it! When I finish the next version of Eitchdot (i'm working a lot on it) I will work very hard on it.

    Maybe i will got a new computer today, about a K6-II 550, and it will be so good to put Linux on that! iuhuu!
