Buf... A lot of days since my last post! :-D let's go:

Some weeks ago, I thought about the possibility of buiding a wireless free network in my small tow (Girona). I had documented about this possiblity and it seems very factible. During the last days, talking with my friends in AEIGi, we decided that it must become a reallity and we will start the preparations to begin this wonderfull project.

Our first intentions are pospone the main work till February because we have the damned examns during the next month and more over mostly of us works on other things. Although, we have promising plants to begin all.

I will try to expose here the project evolution and generate some documentation to collaborate with other similar projects in our country.

I spent this long holiday weekend in Sant Feliu (a litle village near the beach) with my girl doing nothing. No computers, no work, no university, no nothing... I'm ready to begin the week! :-D

On the other hand, this morning, the Sid update smashed momentarily the Xwindows. Restoring the mga drivers, the xserver config file and disabiliting the screen saver seems to solve it.

Duh... I desert my advogato diary entries during a lot of days since my first post. Therefore here again to continue my diary!

Finaly, I get my trial head system work. You can see some screenshots here! it's really really wonderfull!

Nowadays I work on buying a really big box to support iMente systems. I considering a SMP Athlon XP system working over scsi with an impressive Tyan motherboard working with 4 GB of RAM. This machine will be VERY load an I'm thinking to underrate this architecture and get a Alpha system. I have no much experience in Alpha boxes and I have to think a lot about this before take a decision.

This is my first advogato post after thinking about this during some days. I want to practise my poor and sad english, and i can't imagine a better way to do this! Ok, let's start:

I usualy use a Matrox G450 on my dualhead Desktop. I want to connect an old Matrox Millenum II pci graphic card to get a three monitor desktop. Unfortunately, although there is no IRQ incompatibility and seems that it must work, I'm only able to view two monitors working: the pci and one agp head or the dual agp card. Tomorrow I will try to readjust the memory setings in order to get everything work. Anyone had get it?
