Life: waiting for a better time.

Business: waiting for a better time.

Free Software: waiting for a better time.

Things aren't going bad, after all ... :-)

Done it!. Now it is legally re-born.

I can't remember why I didn't post any entry in the last year. Anyway, I'm still in the process of running a start-up (Prosa).

The statute that force the company to use, modify, develop and sell only ``software libero'' has been legally accepted and everything else seem to go smoothly.

It's nice to see mperry hanging here. (Hi Mike!). It reminds me how many good people I met during my Linuxcare experience.

My hard drive died. My "stinkpad" has never worked well. I'm now spending my day reinstalling and reconfiguring everything, like in my "windows 3.1" days ... shit.

Everything with the re-founding of PROSA is working well. For those who asked, yes, we are still looking for hiring some more people. There is yet a lot of work to do.

I finally decide to re-create Prosa, the italian company forced by its statute to exclusively use, develop and sell free software.

I will stay away for a while, because I need some rest, but at least now I know what I will do in the future.

My last day at Linuxcare as General Manager of Linuxcare Italia.

I decided to give up. I will not work for any Linux companies anymore, and I will not start any Linux companies again. I need a long vacation, and a long de-stressful period.

I'm fairly confident that this period will lead me to something new in the future.

First of all, thanks to Schoen for his wish to me, and to Elise because she certified me as a Master (even if I don't know why :-)).

Schoen, don't worry for us: there are so many people interested in us, that I couldn't even imagine that. So the future is more brilliant than the past.

Let me say that most of the people I met in Linuxcare, simply rocks.

About anything else about the company, I should simply say "no comment". At least by now :-).

Fun stuffs today: I need to figure out what to do with my company. We'll see. Update: next week.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
