We (me, ruda and kojima) are working in a TRIAL for a big brasilian bank for tomorrow(!!). acidbase, gwm and eliphas are working in another contract (with YA bank). yep, buzzword- compliant work: GSM, 3G CELL PHONES, PKI, XML, UML projects, SAX parsers, SOAP, cryptic OSes (Symbian), C++, Java, blah, blah, blah. It's the wonderful new mobile corporate world. (BTW, that Nokia Comunicator is a brick, but I want one, too :))
My wife now wants a vacation trip. oh well.
Heh. So much time, so much happened. I worked 3 months as 'specialist consultant for Arbor' in Global Village Telecom, making C programs in HPUX interfacing other systems with Arbor (iuck).
In the mean time we opened our own firm, Haxent (http://haxent.com), with ruda, gwm, acidbase, eliphas and kojima, we closed some contracts with Terra (Terra Lycos) and some smallers companies, and now we commited our whole team with MobileIQ, working with SymbianOS development (C++ and Java).
