The last weeks are very busy. Considering this, doesn't matter if you receive a good or a bad notice, both of them will make thing run faster, in other words, Hurry up! . When it happens, I remember The Matrix (first movie), when they are working to get Neo out and Cypher says: "... buckle your seatbelt, Dorothy, because Kansas, is going bye-bye". I would like to say "thank you" for lerdsuwa and Akira, both certified me as Apprentice.
Keep working to put mails in order, translate stuff for Debian, specially now that we are trying to organize our l10n effort. FLISOL is getting closer and we have lots of things to do. Until now we have 74 cities in 12 different countries, I will work on Curitiba .
I have to tell that I received a few "bad news" in the last days but I also received "good news" and if I stop to count, probably I get more "good" than "bad" news. Because of that I'm happy and trying to work hard. One of the special things that I heard in debian-l10n-portuguese about our volunteer work was sent by Fred Maranhao, this simple quote really open my eyes and I start to look to our volunteer job in a different way.
"We are volunteers, not amateurs!"
Another thing that is good to register is a new project started a few days ago, the idea is translate the kernel help messages from make menuconfig and there is a great chance that our idea is just the beginning, which means that we could have i18n for "make menuconfig". (Just "make menuconfig", if you think in printk() messages, stop right now, it is crazy!). acme creates a "pot file" and we are working on it, the idea has a good future.
GOD bless us all! :o)
