My first PyGTK project is on-line, at http://souceforge.net/projects/isdnpy. It's a simple and lame ISDN dialer, but it works :-)

Finally Open Source made some real roots here at the company. Our report system is now GPLed, in http://sourceforge.net/projects/siri

Only a quick note to say: FINALLY I LEARNT BASIC PYTHON!

My first three programs are now ready:

  • a Python port of my ISDN shell script dialer trigger
  • a program to make the skeleton of the SuporteLetter (a weekly newsletter I write about the support's week)
  • a program to format the necessary XML for the Quiz of OLinux

And yes, GO PYTHON!

Ahn, Carnival? Carnival? Yeah, Carnival! 5 days of sex, love and joy with my girl!

Today the support moved to a new room. A bit more space for us - and everything blue!

Carnival is approaching fast, REALLY fast!

I had to work Saturday. Hell, working Saturday! At least everything went good :)

Started to learn Python. At least I can bloat my shell scripts now making them run in Python!!! :)))

I'm quite broken, but anyway... I'll spend Carnival with my girl at São Paulo, by plane. A new company called Gol has good prices to São Paulo. US$90 for the two tickets (Rio->SP and SP->Rio).

Wow! Finally a new monitor at home. A simple 14" one, but I finally can send my old and trusty SyncMaster 3 to my brother :-)

Oh hell. Customer problemas, a school has a kind of crazy ISDN subsystem and I can't solve the problem. I'm starting to give up on programs and their craziness.

I need to program! Maybe I need to learn Python. At last because those development freaks love Perl. I hate Perl.

And... for those who asked me, yes, Nautilus compiled! Nautilus compiles and runs on potato :-)

Things are looking a bit better now. Our Linux portal, OLinux, was relaunched yesterday night. After much tears, sweat, failed Bug Days and fights, those people at the development finally made it. I'm a kind of proud, as since I went to work here at Linux Solutions I was involved in the project (I organized the first Bug Day and was a tester)

My first article to ModemClub went online also yesterday. It's a QA about isdn4linux. I liked it! Hope people think the same.

Currently waiting for the 2.4 kernel compile at www.olinux.com.br ending, waiting for a visit to a customer, waiting to let cron apt-get -b source nautilus and so on. Waiting, waiting, writing...


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.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
