Stressed day... Spent all night with the same girl (hihihi). I slept all the morning and woke up 2PM... In the work, I worked a lot on the servers, but with no success. There are two main servers, and one of them is using ipchains to share our link with IP Masquerading. The problem was that the Windows clients weren't working! It's just weird... When I send a icmp echo (ping) to some host, it replys, but when I attempt to connect on some host (for example, ftp or www on some external server), it fails. And it's not a problem in the server, because the Linux clients were sucessfuly working. Spent a lot of hours working on this problem, reviewing the Windows configuration, and it didn't work. I just HATE Windows :( Now I'm home finally, and I will try something tomorrow morning. I thought on a solution: switch the operational system of the clients to Linux! But some guys there didn't like the idea :) But someday... someday...

Laurinha-chan!!! :*

Hau! Completely busy day for me. After talking with a friend of mine all night on the phone, I slept for about 2 hours... From 9 A.M. to 11 A.M. I woke up because my boss called me, with the news that the routers arrived at the company. With this great news, I went to my company and began installing two Linux servers: One for web applications and another to e-mail applications. It went just fine and I'm very happy with our new link here. Linux is really a great system for everything...

I spent all day configuring the Linux servers, and when I finished, I picked up my computer and took my HD. I'm now reinstalling my Linux system because I don't want to use ReiserFS anymore... I made backups of my files, and now I'm putting them back. It is going fine... But I'm still here at work! Very tired, and tomorrow will be another day of full work! I love this :)

Now that I have my computer back, I will surely begin working on something useful for others...! And BTW, can anyone tell me where I change my passphare here at advogato?

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...

    LIFE STUFF

      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 ;)
