After reading the Advogato's articles for a couple of weeks, I've decided to create an account and start writing this diary. Why? Well, one of the main reasons is, i must admit, drawing attention to MDK, my first fs project. I'm really happy with the interest it has already raised, and the feedback of other users. OK, maybe it is just a toy, but a toy that can prove useful for readers and students of "The Art of Computer Programming", which is, imho, the best book on computer science ever written. But MDK is not the only reason for joining Advogato. I want to keep in touch with fellow free software programmers, and to take part in the amusing discussions on the articles, which happen to be of an excellent quality (unlike those found in other well-known internet forums like /.).
